Chosen by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast

In the third book of the House of Night series, we join Zoey Redbird, a fledgling vampyre, once again. Things are really getting turned upside down in her life. For instance, her best friend is undead and pretty much all monster. Also, she has three boyfriends. No, not one, three. And to add to that, her sworn enemy, Aphrodite, seems to be the only person she can turn to. Oh, and adult vampyres start being killed. Sound's fun doesn't it? Now, Zoey has to try and figure out what's going on without her evil mentor/the House of Night's high priestess finding out that Zoey's on to her. And she has to deal with her guy situation. Also, she is still hanging on to a thread of hope that her best friend might still be saved. With all this going on, Zoey's having to keep a lot of secrets and when her friends find out what she's been keeping from them, it's not going to be pretty. I'm just glad I'm not Zoey...

I have been in love with the House of Night series since reading the first book, Marked. And with the third book, my love was just deepened. :P I really don't have much to complain about with this book! For example, the plot, though very complicated, was woven seamlessly and perfectly. The Casts really know how to deliver a story convincingly. I love, love, love this series! One of the things that sort of bothered me though was Zoey's selfishness. I mean, three boyfriends? Come on. And throughout the story she's debating what to do about that situation, but never actually acts on it. The only way the boyfriend problem gets cleared up is when the guys find out about each other. Not really a great way for it to end, huh? I think it really served Zoey right though for her to end up with no guys loyal to her. That actually satisfied me. So I'm hoping that for the next book, Untamed, coming in the fall, Zoey learns her lesson and puts it into action. One of the other things that I liked was the character Aphrodite. It really proved that even though people can be horrible in the beginning, everyone can change and I really liked that perspective. I was also glad that Stevie Rae, Zoey's undead best friend, came back in the end. I loved her charachter and can't wait to see more of her. So, obviously, I really liked this book. It's just another example of all the great vampire books out there! I would highly recommend it.
