Chosen (House of Night, Book 3) - P.C. and Kristin Cast


Dark forces are at work at the House of Night and Zoey Redbird's adventures at the school take a mysterious turn. Her best friend, Stevie Rae, is undead and struggling to maintain a grip on her humanity. Zoey finds herself in the very unexpected and rare situation of having three boyfriends. Mix a little bloodlust into the equation and the situation has the potential to spell social disaster. Just when it seems things couldn't get any tougher, vampyres start turning up dead. Really dead. It looks like the People of Faith are tired of living side-by-side with vampyres. But, as Zoey and her friends so often find out, how things appear rarely affects the truth...

Like I've said before, I love reading all sorts of books and even though Romance is my favorite category I love a good Paranormal thrown into the mix. when I came upon this House if Night series I'll say that I was interested but wary by the reading level it was at. These books are at the Young Adult reading level, but I can honestly say if I had kids they would NOT be reading this series. There is talk of drugs, sex and alcohol between these pages and frankly I don't think a kid under the age of 18 needs to read that sort of stuff.

Apart from that I enjoyed this book! This is the third book in the series and the best yet I feel this story is really evolving into a great series. We continue the journey of Zoey Redbird and her faithful friends through their trials and tribulations of becoming adult vampyres. Zoey has many problems in this book. Between juggling three boyfriends, a best friend that's part of the undead dead group running amuck, and a really pissed off High Priestess, it’s just more than she can handle. From page 1 to 307 I was spellbound. Zoey's determination to please her Goddess Nyx is truly marvelous. She is definitely tested in this book and we learn that not everyone is perfect even a "Chosen" one. There were tons of action, deceit and even a morsel of lust in this short novel. I totally recommend it to anyone that loves a bit of the paranormal in their reading to pick this one up.

I give this book a total of...

Hmmm, I'm gonna have to add this to my very long list of books to check out. You've been talking about this book long enough throughout the week, LOL.

Great first review sweets and yeah, I know what you mean. I wouldn't want my 12 year old niece reading about sex, drugs and all those never you mind subjects! =)
