Burned (House of Night, #7) by P.C. Cast, Kristin Cast
I am really enjoying the change in narration.
Why? It is nice to step away from Zoey's crazy love life and her many consorts. No one, not even a High Priestess, should be having so many boys in her life at one given moment. Needless to say, it was becoming tiresome and with the switch narration readers are able to read other aspects from other characters.
When Heath passes to the next realm and Zoey follows, life for the HON cast is in a mad dash trying to figure out how to bring Zoey back. The more they dig and piece things together by using everyone's talents the more they learn how to save Zoey and what I suspect will help them succeed the larger threat later- Neferet.
But Zoey's latest adventures is not the only one to be read. Stevie Ray has her plate full as well but that seems to come with he High Priestess job description. Since Tempted Stevie Ray has quickly climbed the ropes and peaked my interest. She is kind, compassionate, smart, loyal and strong. Of course, it seems she would not truly be a High Priestess without a little love triangle action- so yes there is. She has two males that she is confused between.
There is Kalona's son, Rephaim. Their relationship is what got my attention in Tempted and mainly what I was looking forward to in this installment an no complaints by me. Rephaim and Stevie have certainly been growing together and I loved it all.
There is also Dallas who is a red fledgling. He may be sweet but so help me I want to punch his mouth every time he uses the word "girl." It just doesnt sound right to me and I consciously worked to block it out. The only other endearing name I was not fond of was Heath using "babe." For some reason it doesnt sound right coming out of a teenagers mouth. I call my husband "babe" from time to time but it just seems unnatural for a teenager, imo.
All in all, I enjoyed this novel and I think I did because of the focus on several characters instead of just having one heroine and hero. Again, I am looking forward to more of Stevie Ray and Rephaim more then anything else. I am hoping that Stevie Ray's love triangle does not go overboard like Zoey's. If you have read this novel you know that there is bound to be consequences from events that transpired with Dallas. What will those consequences be? and how long it will drag out is the question and my fear. Please do not kill this story line.
