REVIEW: Tempted by P.C. and Kristin Cast


So…you’d think after banishing an immortal being and a fallen High Priestess, saving Stark’s life, biting Heath, getting a headache from Erik, and almost dying, Zoey Redbird would catch a break. Sadly, a break is not in the House of Night school forecast for the High Priestess in training and her gang. Juggling three guys is anything but a stress reliever, especially when one of them is a sexy Warrior who is so into protecting Zoey that he can sense her emotions. Speaking of stress, the dark force lurking in the tunnels under the Tulsa Depot is spreading, and Zoey is beginning to believe Stevie Rae could be responsible for a lot more than a group of misfit red fledglings. Aphrodite’s visions warn Zoey to stay away from Kalona and his dark allure, but they also show that it is Zoey who has the power to stop the evil immortal. Soon it becomes obvious that Zoey has no choice: if she doesn’t go to Kalona he will exact a fiery vengeance on those closest to her. Will Zoey have the courage to chance losing her life, her heart, and her soul?

Well, I really love this series and I have enjoyed all of the books. This book is no exception. It still shocks me how Zoey can have all these guys chasing after her and it always seems to sound like a bad thing. In my opinion a bunch of hot guys chasing after me could never be a bad thing.. ha. I love all of the characters in this series and they are all developed so well in P.C and Kristin's writing that you feel like you know all of them. And the world of the vampyres to me in this novel seems really believable somehow. The only issue I have with this series and it is the same issue that I have with many series is that a lot of the books seem like filler books that end with a huge cliffhanger. They don't really seem to be stand alone books at all so you always have to go back and at least read then end of the last book to remember what happened. Well, if you read as many other books as I do, you generally get some mixed up occassionally. I wish it was more like Harry Potter or Twilight where you kind of have to read all of the books to get the whole story line but you at least feel somewhat content with the end of the book and not immediately feel like it just ends. I don't know could just be my opinion though. Another good book from the Casts'. Unfortunately we have to wait until April of next year for the next installment.



great review, I'm reading it right now, so far so good!
