Just have her end up with Stark already and let's get onto other things. I also find some of the language annoying i. Zoey tries not to swear, and so says things like "Bullpoopie" which is a word that should have never been created, ever, ever, ever. This is especially weird since other characters like Aphrodite in the book totally drop the f-bomb, so it's not the like the authors are trying to appeal only to a younger audience.
It's not that I want all swearing all the time, it's just that some of the psuedo-swears just make my stomach turn. I guess my overall criticism of this series is that each book is like a 1 hour installment of a TV show. I'm much happier when 1 book would better translate into an entire season's worth of episodes, kwim? That's all. Fewer books, more stuff per book. But that means less money for publishers and authors, I guess. Mar 11, Valerie rated it did not like it Shelves: I reviwed the earlier books and found them to be very teen-oriented and entertaining, but this book will be the last that my girls or I will read.
The main character, while protesting every page that she really is a good and virtuous girl, has managed to sleep with her teacher, hook up with an ex-boyfriend, hook up with another ex and then hook up with a guy who is half rapist, half "misunderstood. As a mom, I don't care if it's a fantasy world, the authors go out of their way to create realistic modern teens, and this is about the worst role modeling I've seen.
There is a gay character, and the authors mention he is gay at least every page if not more. I know these books are extremely popular, and there are worse books, but the direction these are heading is straight down, which is a disappointment for a promising series.
Aug 29, Lanie rated it did not like it Shelves: This was worse than all the other books on my "books that pissed me off" shelf up together.
Even the VERY few redeemed qualities this series had have just been destroyed under the sheer weight of how overly disgusting this shit fest of a book really is.
Spoilers ahead. Just warning you,since I'm gonna be ranting a fucking lot. Let's start the list off with the writing. I started highlighting, but there was just to damn m This was worse than all the other books on my "books that pissed me off" shelf up together.
I started highlighting, but there was just to damn much here in "hunted" I had 2 give up, for the sake of my mental wellbeing. About a million different times we are reminded of things that after four other books, we already know.
It's boring, takes up valuable page space, and is insulting to the reader. I can understand a passing mention of something here or there. But whole paragraphs, no, pages, devoted to recapping? We're being treated like we're stupid. That we can't remember what happened one or two books ago.
People reread books for a new release believe it or not. Most readers start at the beginning. Get that through you thick skulls. Then there is the dialogue problem. Most of it is this pointless fucking banter that adds nothing to the plot. It's all half assed attempts to sound like real teens, but it fails miserably. So much could have been edited out, but no. It's not. Also, how old is Darius supposed to be. I realize he's meant to be in his early to mid twenties, but when he speaks it's like a really bad lord of the rings imitation.
Just because Zoey has fancy powers, doesn't mean she should be allowed to be a leader. Never mind a religious leader. Which leads me to my next issue. As always, a main character has probably the biggest effect on the story. They need to be an interesting person. A protagonist can be good or bad or neutral. They don't have to be likable. Not really. But having an unlikable lead character can be a good thing. If it's handled the right way.
Anti Heroes can be tons of fun. But it all fails when your main character is the most judgmental, shallow, stupid, hypocritical, prudish bitch in all of literature But she is still the chosen one. The gal that's supposed to save the day.
The one I am meant to be rooting for. Well I am sorry. Who is constantly mentioning how hot her 3 boyfriends are, but then calls the poor mind controlled girls who are fanning over the ones controlling them "annoying. Who constantly goes on about how special she is. Who gets mad at Erik for getting jealous and not trusting her after she has made it perfectly clear that she CANT be trusted.
Who thinks its ok for her to string a long all these guys at once and be a cheating, lying, jerk, but God forbid stark be with more than one person.
A girl who thinks that she's really in love with a boy she's know for only a couple days. A girl who handles rape so disgustingly. More on that in a minute. I mean, I might fight her entertaining if she was an anti hero. But she's not. She's supposed to be a good guy. The savior of the good guys. Token characters. To a point were it is pretty offensive. It's clear that they only really exist as token characters to show how diverse the group is or how accepting Zoey is. We are told several times in the story that she's coffee colored.
Because clearly, the people reading this must be reminded of it. Maybe the writers thing we magically forget she was jamacian in the last few pages of plot? A walking stereotype of African American teen from the inner city. It's just so racist. How did the casts get this character through editing? I don't no, but it say a lot for the stupidity of these publishers, I'll say that. Love interests. I guess Erik the "honestly a good guy " wasnt working, so they brought in Stark as a "bad boy" replacement.
See, maybe this wouldn't annoy me so much if it had been dealt with differently. But instead of just keeping the break up all uber messy because Zoey was an idiot and slept with her teacher, the casts did a one with Erik, turning him from bland, boring nice guy to complete controlling jerk.
He was angry then and had every right to be. She betrayed him. But it went from that to total "caveman control the woman because she be property " mindset. Again, this kind of behavior might be a justifiable on Eriks part. He cared for Zoey but she hurt him. But this time with Heath. Both were wrong at times in this relationship.
Mostly Zoey, since Erik was just reacting to her bad choices. But then later in the story it is confirmed by his ex girlfriend Aphrodite my fav character that he tried the same sort of controlling "don't talk to other guys" behavior with her. He didn't act that way because he had been wronged. But because he's not a nice guy.
He's just a controlling dick who is really fucking good at acting. Because of stark. Because for some insane reasons these bitch authors decided they needed a bad boy character.
A shitty excuse of a tormented soul character. That's much better than the same old nice boy route, huh? Stark destroyed 4 books worth of character development, which in all honesty, could have been very interesting.
But no. The potential is being pushed aside for stark. Mainly because teens are idiots. But there is a point where it's to much. It all goes above and beyond to much.
It just gets in the way of the basic good versus evil plot. These characters don't understand love at all. You can feel lust for the hot guy, sure. Maybe even like him after a big important conversation like the one Zoey and Stark shared in book 4. I'll download that. But I can't believe all this shit they keep spewing about love and connections. Because they can't know. Not from just a few days of knowing each other.
It's not love. It's insta love. He's saved from the dark because of Zoey making him feel? How cheesy. They are not in love. I don't get it. What the actual fuck?! So, are you saying that Hannibal Lecter was a good guy because he acted like a good guy most of the time? I don't understand your logic. Stark, our love interest. Is, like I said, the tormented soul type. He's having this great inner struggle with his humanity. Much like Stevie Rae did.
But for most of the book, he's in the in between state. Like Stevie Rae was when she was eating street people. So since there are no humans around to feed from, he has to use fledglings. They save the girl, of course. But then there's no punishment. None at all. In fact, Zoey basically comforts Stark about his evilness. Then later she hops in bed with this sexual assultor to go to sleep next to him. How dumb can you get? But the worst part is the victim blaming with Becca, the girl he attacked.
Everyone, even Becca herself, dismisses it because Stark is hot. Idk, but it's still really fucked up. The whole issue is treated so badly, it makes me kinda ill just writing about it. Here what Erin said about poor brainwashed Becca's behavior.
It's her fault then? It's also awful This is the girl a goddess wants in charge? I desperately wish I could give this zero stars. It's that bad. The 1 good thing I could say? Well, I think the raven mockers are pretty cool.
Imagine the effects in a movie! They'd look really bad ass. At least like I picture them. I can never be to sure how they were meant to look in the book.
The casts aren't so great at describing. I see The body of a man, totally covered in black feathers with weird red eyes, wings on their backs like angels of maximum ride. The cgi would be stellar on them. For creepy monsters things, they're high on my list of cool looks. Only read if you are a fan for some odd reason, want to write s fun ranting review, or simply have the need to finish what you start. Dec 30, Fangs for the Fantasy rated it did not like it.
After a series of dubious events force Zoey and her people back to the House of Night after they managed to escape in the last book they are left only with a random series of poems to guide them to finally drive off Kaloma. I intend to use this link spam After a series of dubious events force Zoey and her people back to the House of Night after they managed to escape in the last book they are left only with a random series of poems to guide them to finally drive off Kaloma.
I intend to use this link spam in my defence argument. By the time we get to book 8 it will be 10, pages long and only pages of it will be actual plot, the rest will be endless, painful, dull recap Which pretty much sums up well over pages of this book. Zoey and Erik begin their relationship do-si-do and they all do… nothing.
They hide in the tunnels, safe from their enemies that hates going underground. Which Zoey promptly does. Of course she does. In a desperate, forced attempt to move this limping plot forward, Zoey abandons even her limited supply of common sense.
Because when they get there they do…. They do… uh… well Zoey and Stark connect and then they escape. Like the last book, this prophecy involves everyone scratching their head about how impossible it is — only Nyx has even less faith in her minions than I do!
No Nyxy feeling, not him… next! Kaloma and Neferet take over the school and possibly plot to take over the High Council.
The kill the last High Priestess and then use woo-woo to stop the rest of vampirekind from finding out…. All of which would be utterly impossible if Nyx would do something. Zoey and Erik end up back together more on that later and Erik is much more pushy with his attentions, his kisses more sexual. Zoey is quick to realise and reject the idea that because she had sex with Loren means Erik is now in a stronger position to cross that same line. Which is good Read More I'm getting really annoyed with this series.
I feel like it's going absolutely nowhere. The authors are clearly trying very hard to sound like ''teenagers'' and just ending up sounding completely ridiculous.
They really underestimate the intelligence of the readers. The repetition is completely insane. Take out all the pages that recap the story so far, and the book would be at least two hundred pages shorter.
Zoey retells the story to us, the characters retell the story to each other, and the s I'm getting really annoyed with this series. Zoey retells the story to us, the characters retell the story to each other, and the story is retold to any newcomers I doubt many people are picking the series up at book five, and it doesn't make sense to accommodate the few people that might.
I wish Zoey would just leave. I realize the series is supposed to be about her, but I simply don't care anymore. I'm completely sick of her, and I can't see how anyone wouldn't be. She kissed four difference guys in the space of four hundred pages. She talks about other girls being ''sluts'' and ''easy'' when she's the exact definition of those words. She's so dense, and takes forever to figure things out. She spends half the book ranting about how ''controlling'' and ''possessive'' Erik is, when all he did was ask her to not go outside where evil monsters are literally waiting to kill her with the ex-boyfriend that she's gone back to so many times I've lost count.
She acts all high and mighty, and seems completely oblivious to how hypocritical she's become. The stereotypes are really getting on my nerves. We get it, Damien and Jack are gay. You don't have to tell us this every time they appear. Just because they're gay, does not mean they do everything in a gay way. They do not cough in a gay way, they do not smile in a gay way, and they're not prone to fainting simply because they're gay. Yet Zoey tells us these things every time they appear in the story.
She even tells us to ''get over'' the fact that they're gay, even though she's the only one who seems to be obsessed with it. Also, Krashima was completely unnecessary. Just because she's black doesn't mean she has to fill every stereotype there is and talk like she's never been in an English class.
The ''twins'' also need to disappear. I'm sick of being told they're ''not actually twins'' every time their names are mentioned. Oh, and the ''vocab'' thing is getting ridiculous. They go on about how Damien uses big words all the time. Newsflash, Zoey: Carnage is not a big complicated word. I'm giving the book three stars because of Aphrodite They're the only two characters that make the series worth while, and they're one of the only reasons I'm going to continue with it.
I really wish all the characters would stop giving Aphrodite a hard time. She was bitch for about half of the first book, and the rest seem to be unable to let it go. She's clearly changed, she's clearly a nice person, and she's definitely the only one in the book with half a brain. I think her relationship with Darius is interesting, and I love reading about it. They're literally the only good thing left about this series. View all 3 comments.
Mar 05, Andrea rated it it was amazing Shelves: This much anticipated book in the series is finally here! This did not take me long to read at all, but I must say I am very pleased! The story starts right where it left off in the last book with Zoey and the gang in the underground tunnels with the red fledgings.
What happens is not something I expected, her ex-human boyfriend shows up and that's when it gets ugly. Zoey is forced to go back to The House of Night or she will die. The one person who gets on my nerves here is her ex-human ex This much anticipated book in the series is finally here! The one person who gets on my nerves here is her ex-human ex-imprinted imprinted again boyfriend.
I thought we were rid of him last book, but alas! We are not! At the end of this book Zoey finds herself wrapped up with 3 guys again and not sure what she wants to do! I hope the next book has a little bit more story into the men in her life!
Overall, wonderful! View 2 comments. Mar 12, Mitabird rated it liked it Shelves: I was very annoyed with the dialogue in the beginning of the book. I know it's a YA book, but it seemed so juvenile to me.
Do teenagers really talk this way? IMO, this was a filler book. There was not much going on through most of the story. The ending was as expected, but it was sort of a let-down.
I wanted more action, I guess. I know the thing that bothers me the most is all of Zoey's boyfriends. I just wished she would focus on her craft and realize that she doesn't need a man or boy to be complete.
I'll read the next in the series whenever it comes out though. Feb 15, Meagan rated it it was ok. To the Casts: I really enjoy this series, but this was a bit much. Too much "boy issue", we get it she always has to deal with multiple attachments. Get back into the actually intriguing mythology you have developed.
This story was only about 2 days, best I can tell, and again we are left on the edge. Button it up please! Mar 17, Steph Sinclair rated it did not like it Shelves: And this is where I gave up on this series. I just couldn't connect with the characters. Mar 30, Vania rated it it was ok Shelves: Unfortunately some of my speculations came true. There were two things that had bothered me from the beginning of the series. I don't understand why after four books we need to be reminded of things we already know.
These books aren't stand alone so therefore the redundancy became irritating. Zoey is a strong character yet, she k "Hunted" is one of those books I was majorly looking forward to.
Zoey is a strong character yet, she keeps relying on guys, and at the same time can't make up her mind. She's looking like a ho and even she doesn't like it. Well, maybe it's time to stick to a boy, Z. In fact, why are we going in circles with this book? Are we seriously back to Heath? The plot left me hanging a bit. I wanted so much more than I got more about that on Discussion Thursday with Ravenous Reader The beginning starts off well.
The dream the one from chapter one online is kick-butt. A great concept that seems to appear a bit throughout, but not enough. The story goes in circles a bit , and once again we find ourselves in a familiar love triangle, or maybe even square. The book lacks a real big climax and leave you wanting more. There's some crazy new character developments. For one the a fore mentioned triangle, square.
Then there's an interesting twist involving Aphrodite, Darius, and Stevie Rae. Not to mention the guys: Erik, Heath, Stark. The characters are interwoven really nicely and its great to see the relationship grow and develop. This book was entertaining and fun, filled with wise cracking jokes and fun filled character craziness that's the best way to describe it i. Jack's sandwiches. The books is what I expected, though not without a few minor disappointments. I just want to get to the next book and see what happens with Zoey and her Nerd Herd.
Dec 02, Robin rated it did not like it Shelves: My overall reaction to the end of this book was, 'So what? I don't understand the hype around this series. It isn't very good, it's written blatantly aimed at selling as many copies to the incredibly stupid, shallow tween American audience. How do I know this? The lack of swearing. Normal teenagers swear. And the sex.
The sex! What sex? What sex there is is undescribed, unnecessary and t My overall reaction to the end of this book was, 'So what? What sex there is is undescribed, unnecessary and totally unrealistic.
The love heptagon is ridiculous. I don't care how many men are pointlessly in love with Zoey - just freaking decide on one already! Oh, and why do all the characters have to be needlessly hot? I don't care if vampirism makes you look hot - surely to other vampires you'd just look normal. And the whole red vampire thing? Do they have to make it political?! I only read the books in the hopes that they would get better.
They didnt. The characters? All of them, without exception, are as flat as boards. Sues or Anti! And can I just point out, the romance between bird-guy and Stevie-Ray?
Way creepy. The mythology? What a way to butcher Ancient Greek goddesses and make them look like Disney fairy princesses, Cast s. What on Earth was she thinking, giving characters tatoos for no apparent reason but to display power. Surely an aura only detectable by other vampires or a t-shirt is okay, not body-altering and slightly disfiguring ink splats? Overal, definitely meh. In this latest book, Hunted, the main character Zoey, goes in even deeper than ever before.
The intrigue, romance, adventure and spiritual awakening are more intense. Even the bad characters draw you in and make you want to believe in them and often it's difficult to find the fine lines between the good and evil.
Really enjoyed this one. Nov 09, Bridget rated it liked it Shelves: Re read and still loving the Nerd Herd!! I will start by saying that Zoey's love-life resembles the mythological Hydra. Kill one boyfriend, and two more will grow back in his place. This was probably the slowest-paced of all the books. The first or so pages were all Zoey feeling like Erik was being 'possessive' even though they had just gotten back together and she was sending him mixed signals, by also wanting to spend alone time with Heath.
Erik did not take this lightly, however. I didn't scream and smack him lik I will start by saying that Zoey's love-life resembles the mythological Hydra. I didn't scream and smack him like I really wanted to. Instead, all i did was shake my head and say in my coldest voice, "Erik, enough.
Just because we're back together doesn't mean you can tell me what to do. I gasped and took a step back from him like he'd slapped me. Also, I deducted one whole star for the character Kramisha. If this book was written in the authors would have probably described her as "ratchet" and had her eating flaming hot Cheetos and listening to Cardi B.
It was terrible. She can't speak proper English and is named the Poet Laureate for her intuitive poems. I got work to do. Then I gotta get my rest. A Poet Laureate do have to look her best," Kramisha said primly, finishing up with a couplet. That being said, I didn't dislike this book. I'm curious to see what happens with Stark, Neferet, Aphrodite and Darius.
I actually don't give a rat's ass about Kalona. Apr 23, J. I found that it took a while to get to the point of the storyline. The main idea was Zoey had to face an immortal being and fight off a fallen high priestess who was out to kill her and stop her from following a fate that has been laid out by the Goddess Nyx. I found that part quite interesting. With the added fact that the use of coarse language gave some of the characters a witty demeanour made it a tad bit more enjoyable.
The downside to full review at https: The downside to the novel was that I found the main character as mentioned before which is Zoey to be a whiny and bitchy. Well she may be one after all.
With all this came the added fact that she was having to find a way to put a stop to an immortal being who kept thinking that she was the Cherokee version of A-ya.
The downside to this novel was a lot of repeating of character introductions and repetition of a few Cherokee words that had been mentioned in previous novels. I liked the book but there were a few things that really did get to the downside.
There was also a problem with chapters. The chapter headings were missing which made it a little bit more difficult to understand when one chapter ended and another chapter began. Overall, I did enjoy the read but the improvements suggested would have made it a better read. Sitting on a 3. Remaining opened minded to what the next book and the whole series has in store. Hunted is the fifth book in the House of Night series and continues from Untamed by only a day or two.
Zoey and her friends are now hiding out in the tunnels with the red fledgelings, a different kind of fledgeling who change into a different kind of vampyre, and one which Zoey doesn't know if she can trust yet. Stevie Rae is badly hurt by an arrow piercing through her chest after being fired by the newly risen red fledgeling, Stark. All the gang is pretty freaked out by what happened at the end Hunted is the fifth book in the House of Night series and continues from Untamed by only a day or two.
All the gang is pretty freaked out by what happened at the end of Untamed and band together to decide the best course of action. Erik is also one of the group hiding out and at first things are awkward between him and Zoey, but they decide to forgive each other. Although Heath, Zoey's other ex-boyfriend, are no longer imprinted, he seeks her out at the tunnels and wants to talk.
But while she is struggling with her love for Heath and the knowledge that it's best for him if they don't see each other again, Zoey is attacked by one of the raven-men and is now fighting for her life. Unfortunately, to save herself, Zoey has to drink Heath's blood and so they are imprinted again, at the delight of Heath, but Erik is definitely not happy.
But things still do not look good for Zoey so they have to take her back to the House of Night, to Neferet, who is the only one who can heal her.
But it feels as though they are entering a different House of Night, one filled with raven-men, fear and Kalona, an evil fallen angel who rose from the Earth at the end of Untamed. At the end of the last book, Aphrodite was coming through as a very strong character, and was slowly becoming my favourite. She still likes the boys but she doesn't let them take over her life.
She's funny and sexy as well as strong-willed and determined. I just love all her witty retorts. To me she's the most level headed character and to be honest the most strong, even more so than Zoey. Zoey still has boy troubles and continues to make them worse, but after reading my previous reviews, I am sure you are now well aware how this part of the series has my eyes rolling.
However, the action is still there in Hunted, which kept me reading until the last page. Although Hunted is quite a roller coaster ride and a good read, it didn't engage me as much as the previous four books. I admit I am getting tired of Zoey and all her boyfriend issues, and the choices she makes when around them, but I'm still looking forward to reading Tempted, the next book in the series.
