Review: Hunted by P. C. Cast + Kristin Cast (HoN series)
Novel: Hunted (House of Night #5)
Author: P.C. Cast + Kristin Cast
Genre: Young Adult Urban Fantasy
The good news: Zoey’s friends have her back again and Stevie Rae and the red fledglings aren’t Neferet’s secrets any longer. The bad news: Ancient evil with the face of an angel has been let loose – that and various other nasties (whose faces aren’t so angelic). Grandma Redbird is in trouble. Heath is in trouble. The House of Night is in trouble. Okay, let’s face it – Zoey’s whole world is in trouble! But when the trouble comes from a being who appears to be beauty personified, will the world believe it? Especially when only a teenager and a group of misfits are the only ones who really understand the danger he brings. Will Zoey have the strength and wisdom to reveal the truth? Especially when, in the House of Night, the truth is often hard to come by…
(I will not be posting any spoilers! Only opinion for the sake of those of us who love to have our first look at a book be untainted by foreknowledge.)
This series still continues to be my guilty pleasure but I have to say that this novel and Untamed were both steps up, making me really look forward to Tempted! There was extensive character development, plot development and overall it was very enjoyable. You meet a new character who I really enjoy and find out a lot about what has been happening behind the scenes in past novels and what it has been leading up to! I have to say that this novels makes me like nuns more. If you haven't read it yet you might not understand what I mean but without being too spoilery the nuns in this book and Untamed ROCK! There are so many things that I enjoyed about this book but so that I don't get all spoilery I will simply say it is a worthwhile read if you enjoy the series and I know I enjoyed it!!!
Would I suggest you read it:
As with the rest of the series this is a book where I am a bit torn about who I should suggest it to. On the one hand I really enjoyed it and it was written in a style that brought me back to when I was a teenager but on the other hand there was cussing, sexual references and more that isn’t appropriate for all teens and some adult prefer to stay away from. So I would have to say that I would suggest it to anyone who wants to read it but knows what they are getting into and understands that there is some inappropriate content.
