Review | Hunted by P.C. Cast & Kristin Cast @ChickenFrances

Title:  Hunted
Series:  House of Night (Book 5)
Author:  P.C. Cast & Kristin Cast
Published:  April 2010
Genre:  Paranormal Romantic, YA Fantasy


What if the hottest guy in the world was hiding a nameless evil, and all he wanted was you?

At the start of this heart-pounding new installment of the bestselling House of Night series, Zoey’s friends have her back again and Stevie Rae and the red fledglings aren’t Neferet’s secrets any longer. But an unexpected danger has emerged. Neferet guards her powerful new consort, Kalona, and no one at the House of Night seems to understand the threat he poses. Kalona looks gorgeous, and he has the House of Night under his spell. A past life holds the key to breaking his rapidly spreading influence, but what if this past life shows Zoey secrets she doesn’t want to hear and truths she can’t face?

On the run and holed up in Tulsa’s Prohibition-era tunnels, Zoey and her gang must discover a way to deal with something that might bring them all down. Meanwhile, Zoey has a few other little problems. The red fledglings have cleaned up well – they’ve even managed to make the dark, creepy tunnels feel more like home – but are they really as friendly as they seem? On the boyfriend front, Zoey has a chance to make things right with super-hot ex-, Erik, but she can’t stop thinking about Stark, the archer who died in her arms after one unforgettable night, and she is driven to try to save him from Neferet’s sinister influence at all costs. Will anyone believe the power evil has to hide among us?

(Recommended for readers age 13 and older)


Seriously!!! I could not put this book down! From start to finish I devoured the book in no time at all.  Zoey's adventures just keep getting better and with that said I am a fan of not only P.C. Cast and Kristen Cast but want to read other series written by these two amazing authors.

When Zoey wins her friends back and all seems right in the world at the House of Night we are introduced to Kalona.  A seductive, manipulative and evil man possessed where Zoey is concerned but she cannot deny him.  He's got her hooked in ways she doesn't understand.  His secret, his past and Zoey's is the key to unlocking everything.

Neferet just needs to get lost, I've been sick of her for a while now.  She's horrid and I don't know why she's not been dealt with yet.  Now that she's working with Kalona and the power he possesses is enough to take on Zoey, her friends and the red fledglings as they have been hiding out in the tunnels of underground Tulsa.

Meanwhile Zoey and her friends come to terms with the red fledglings and find they can get along.  Fighting the evil daily the red fledglings have to make a choice to be good.  A hard decision to make being undead and their instinct to kill against them.
