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

Title:  Tempted
Series:  House of Night (Book 6)
Author:  P.C. Cast & Kristin Cast
Published:  April 2010
Genre:  Paranormal Romantic, YA Fantasy


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? Find out in the next spectacular installment in the House of Night Series, Tempted.

(Recommended for readers age 13 and older)


While this installment in the series was not one of my most favorite it was still a good read and picks up where Hunted has left off.

Zoey and her friends are closer than ever, when Stark life is saved, Zoey finds herself drawn even closer to him.  The bond they share is utterly amazing, sensing when she is in danger.  Man I'd love a man like that.  Though when push comes to shove he seems a bit over protective.  Fighting to keep Heath at bay and Eric's none stop annoyance only makes matters worse for Zoey.

Neferet takes advantage of her power and works to control the red fledglings once again.  She created them after all.  With the help of Kalona's power the evil spreads throughout the tunnels Zoey and her friends have escaped to.  The only way to sense the danger they've gotten themselves into is when the red fledglings start to turn against them.

It seems running is their only option but where can they turn when everyone is out to get them?  A safe haven is what they need but will the only place in town take in Zoey and her friends?
