Book Review: Untamed

Title: Untamed
Series: House of Night (Book #4)
Authors: P. C. Cast & Kristin Cast
Published:

Synopsis:
Life sucks when your friends are pissed at you.
Just ask Zoey Redbird – she’s become an undisputed expert on suckiness. In one week she has gone from having three boyfriends to having none, and from having a tight-knit group of friends who trusted and supported her, to being an outcast. And the worst part is, she knows it’s her own fault. Speaking of friends, the only two Zoey has left are undead, unMarked, and unable to stop bickering with each other. So who can blame her for befriending the House of Night’s newest transfer student, the majorly hot Olympic archer, James Stark?

Meanwhile, Neferet has declared a war on humans after it appears that the People of the Faith have murdered two vampyres. But Aphrodite’s latest visions show a world completely different from the High Priestess’s promises, a world full of violence, hatred, and darkness, all because of Zoey’s death—and the only way it seems she can prevent it from happening is to make things right with her friends. Zoey knows in her heart that fighting with humans 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.

My Review:
In my opinion, this is the best book in the House of Night series so far. It contains more action, mysteries and "bad guys" than the previous HoN books. The things Zoey is up against in this book is not the evil queen bee, nope her enemy is more evil, powerful and dangerous than that!

Speaking of the queen bee; Aphrodite, Zoey's enemy and rival in the first two books is now her, somewhat reluctant, ally. While keeping her bitch act outwards, Aphrodite shows a more kinder side in this book. She helps Zoey and stands strongly by her side through the entire book. She has actually gone from being a bully to one of my favorite characters.

And believe it or not, this book actually ended with a cliffhanger! And everything is not well in Zoey's world. . . I actually can't wait to read the next book!

Rating: 4.5 of 5

Cool review. :)

This may not be the best series in the world, but it is still very enjoyable.

I just can't believe there are going to be 12 books in the series!

12 books in this series??!! That's so many, can they keep it up? I've read all the ones out so far (and will review them on my site www.loveofvampires.com soon!) but 12 books? really? I mean it's an alright series, but there are so many more vampire book series that are better!
