Book Review: Hunted By P.C. and Kristin Cast

What if the hottest guy in the world was hiding a nameless evil, and all he wanted was you?
At the start of this heart-pounding new installment of the bestselling House of Night series, Zoey’s friends have her back again and Stevie Rae and the red fledglings aren’t Neferet’s secrets any longer.  But an unexpected danger has emerged. Neferet guards her powerful new consort, Kalona, and no one at the House of Night seems to understand the threat he poses.  Kalona looks gorgeous, and he has the House of Night under his spell. A past life holds the key to breaking his rapidly spreading influence, but what if this past life shows Zoey secrets she doesn’t want to hear and truths she can’t face?
On the run and holed up in Tulsa’s Prohibition-era tunnels, Zoey and her gang must discover a way to deal with something that might bring them all down.  Meanwhile, Zoey has a few other little problems.  The red fledglings have cleaned up well – they’ve even managed to make the dark, creepy tunnels feel more like home – but are they really as friendly as they seem?  On the boyfriend front, Zoey has a chance to make things right with super-hot ex-, Erik, but she can’t stop thinking about Stark, the archer who died in her arms after one unforgettable night, and she is driven to try to save him from Neferet’s sinister influence at all costs.  Will anyone believe the power evil has to hide among us?

The nerd herd and red fledglings barely escaped Neferet's wrath and Kalona's spell.  Stevie Rae has a bowe in her chest and Stark has come back as a red fledgling minus the humanity.  The Raven Mockers have killed several of the Tulsa humans.  Thank goodness Zoey has zero guy problems at this point.  Wrong.  Just when her and super hottie Erik are getting back together, Heath shows up at the depot and causing a jealous guy show down.  When Zoey manages to break them up and walk Heath to the car she is attacked by a raven mocker and is so injured they have to go back to the House of Night.  Let's just say the welcome back wasn't warm.   Hidden has a new danger that the other House of Night books had yet to touch on.  It contains secrets, new relationships, action, love, and good vs evil that will leave you wanting more.


What I really like about this book is Stark.  Yes he lost his humanity and is an ass.  But when you see him with Zoey you see a spark of who he used to be.  My favorite parts of the book that I like the most are the ones that contained Stark.   

Darius is kind of awesome.  He puts up with and seems to love Aphrodite.  He always seems so serious and put together and basically saves the day every time.  He is strong enough to stand up to Kalona and Neferet and sticks to his guns.

There is some new found tension that wasn't there before between Stevie Rae and Zoey.  Stevie Rae is better but you can't go through what she has without being different.  The fact that Stevie Rae is trying so hard to hide that she is a different person puts a wedge between her and Zoey.  Without her best friend Zoey and Aphrodite become close because Aphodite is her only confident and actually becomes a great friend.

Heath plays a bigger role in this book as well.  In the other books he just the guy that Zoey was with as a human and she imprinted with.  In this book you see him as more than a not so smart football player that is borderline stalker.  He has depth and is really sweet and caring and while some may see him as a lapdog of a boyfriend his character really steps it up in this book.
