I’ve been a fan of P.C. & Kristin Cast’s House Of Night series since the beginning, so when I recieved an email today with the awesome trailer for Hunted, asking me to share the excitement, I was happy to oblige. (Although an ARC would’ve had me doing fan-girlish squeeing around the house, lol)

HUNTED is the 5th book in the series and here’s the pertinent info.
Untamed by PC & Kristin Cast
(From Back Cover)
“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 P.C. and Kristin Cast’s spellbinding fourth House of Night novel.”
In this fourth installment of the House Of Night series, Zoey’s adventures continue and it really felt like she came into her own. She does a lot of growing up, facing consequences and makes hard decisions. The characters and plot are even more developed and I was totally caught up in the tale once again.
I do think that this is a series that should be read in order as all four books are a continuation of the book before, but you could pick up any of the books and have no problems following along.
Untamed definitely left me anticipating the next book, Hunted, which is due to be released in March 2009. The author’s do not dissapoint with this book! The build up of the world, characters and situations they find themselves in are moving along at a fast clip and I couldn’t put it down.
This is a young adult series, so if you’re a fan of the Twilight books, the Vampire Academy series, the Morganville Vampires series or the Kissing Coffins series, then this series is a sure bet!

(from back cover) “BLOODLUST AND DARK FORCES ARE AT WORK AT THE HOUSE OF NIGHT, and fledgling vampyre Zoey Redbird’s adventures at the school take a mysterious form. 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 the gripping third installment of this “highly addictive series” (Romantic Times Book Reviews), 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 rare position of having three boyfriends, a situation with the potential to spell social disaster. Then vampyres start turning up dead. Really dead. But as Zoey and her friends find out, things are not always what they seem…”
I love, love, love the House Of Night series: Marked, Betrayed & Chosen. This third book in the series finds Zoey still reeling from the death, or rather undeath, of her best friend Stevie Rae, and struggling to find a way to help her. On top of that she’s conflicted about her attraction to three very different (young) men, adjusting to her new role as leader of the Dark Daughters, and upset that she can’t turn to her friends for help with the evil High Priestess Neferet who has everyone fooled.
It’s a riveting look at what high school life would be like if we lived in the Cast’s version of Oklahoma with Vampyres in our midst, and one very special young lady’s coming of age the hard way. More please! The next book in the series, Untamed, is scheduled to be released Fall 2008, I can hardly wait!
