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

Title:  Untamed
Series:  House of Night (Book 4)
Author:  P.C. Cast & Kristin Cast
Published:  September 2008
Genre:  Paranormal Romantic, YA Fantasy


Life sucks when your friends are pissed at you. Just ask Zoey Redbird – she’s become an expert on suckiness. In one week she has gone from having three boyfriends to having none, and from having a close group of friends who trusted and supported her, to being an outcast. Speaking of friends, the only two Zoey has left are undead and unMarked. And Neferet has declared war on humans, which Zoey knows in her heart is wrong. But will anyone listen to her? Zoey's adventures at vampyre finishing school take a wild and dangerous turn as loyalties are tested, shocking true intentions come to light, and an ancient evil is awakened in PC and Kristin Cast's spellbinding fourth House of Night novel.

(Recommended for readers age 13 and older)


I knew it was too good to be true, when your friends desert you and there's no one you can turn to.  Zoey's life has never been easy, sure enough without her friends the going just gets worse.  I blew through this book wanting more and had to know what would happen in Zoey's journey.

While everyone seems to be against her Zoey tries to hard to keep her head up.  Neferet's betrayal along with Loren has put Zoey on guard.  Her suspicions correct about what's going on within the walls of the House of Night yet none of her friends want to listen to what she has to say.

Without her friends the only ones she has to rely on are the undead, and her only friend Stevie Rae, but will that be enough for her to win the war Neferet has started?  Will her friends eventually come around to her side and see Neferet for who and what she really is?
