Burned (House of Night Novels)

I wasn't paying attention and thought this was the last of the series. I was wrong. Once again we are left wanting. Unlike the other HON books this one is all about Zoey Redbird, but doesn't actually focus on her charachter nearly as much as the others. It flashes from one point of view with another, slowly tying in everyone piece by piece.

Stevie Ray is imprinted with the Raven Mocker Rephaim, having to deal with the stress of Zo's shattered soul, and keeping her secret all at once. As if being the only Red Priestess wasn't hard enough. She is finally forced to deal with the rogue red fledglings.

Heath is in the otherworld having to deal with Zo and her literally scattered self. He is trying to convince her to pull herself together. He will have to make the hardest decision of all. To leave her or stay.

Stark has to learn the true meaning of being a warrior in order to save Zo. He has to dig deep inside and figure out what is most important. Will he pull himself out of his pit of despair and save her or wollow in the guilt of his mistakes.

Aphrodite has realized there is more to her power than just visions of a possible future. Will her new abilities help her to heal Zo while giving her a little more patience and compassion. All of these stories mixed together come down to one thing. Will they choose Darkness or Light. Each ones decisions affects the world as they know it.

This book was a fast read. I enjoyed it most of the way through. There were some parts that seemed to drag a little, but not much. The hardest part was reading Zo's parts until the end. She is erratic and scattered and it gets almost to the point of annoying and then Cast changes to the next POV. Still one of my favorite series, I can't wait to see what the outcome will be.
