Review: Chosen by P.C and Kristin Cast

Book: Chosen (House of Night #3)
By: P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast
Publisher: St. Martins Griffin
Publication Date: March 24, 2008

Description: Dark forces are at work at the House of Night and fledgling vampyre Zoey Redbird’s adventures at the school take a mysterious turn.  Those who appear to be friends are turning out to be enemies.  And oddly enough, sworn enemies are also turning into friends.  So begins the gripping third installment of this “highly addictive series” (Romantic Times), in which Zoey’s mettle will be tested like never before.  Her best friend, Stevie Rae, is undead and struggling to maintain a grip on her humanity. Zoey doesn’t have a clue how to help her, but she does know that anything she and Stevie Rae discover must be kept secret from everyone else at the House of Night, where trust has become a rare commodity.  Speaking of rare: Zoey finds herself in the very unexpected and rare position of having three boyfriends. Mix a little bloodlust into the equation and the situation has the potential to spell social disaster.  Just when it seems things couldn’t get any tougher, vampyres start turning up dead. Really dead. It looks like the People of Faith, and Zoey’s horrid step-father in particular, are tired of living side-by-side with vampyres.  But, as Zoey and her friends so often find out, how things appear rarely reflects the truth…

My Thoughts: This is a short review because of course this is a super long series. I'm not sure If I'll even continue to write them. I'm kind of liking the series. It's okay. I mean I get annoyed more and more at the "teen talk," and Zoey's decisions, and the way she seems to know exactly what to do at every second of every day. I also get annoyed when I constantly hear the same things over and over again. I mean, they seem to "remind you" of things you know already like multiple times in one book. Like, seriously, my mind's not that slow. I can remember basic things. Nonetheless, I like the stories and will continue to read the series (even if I dont review every book.) 3.5 stars.

I think this book is a turning point for many of the fans. I can't believe how phenomenally long this series is. Glad you are still enjoying them.
