SUMMMARY
Bloodlust and dark forces are at work at the House of Night. 

Fledgling vampyre Zoey Redbird's adventures at the school are about to take a mysterious turn. Those who appear to be her friends are turning out to be enemies. And oddly enough, sworn enemies are also turning into friends. So begins the gripping third installment of this highly addictive series (Romantic Times), 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 about the secretive and sinister power that's turning dead fledglings into bloodsucking monsters 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 unexpected position of having three boyfriends. Mix in more than a little forbidden desire to the equation and the situation has the potential to spell social disaster of massive proportions. Then, vampyres start turning up dead. Really dead. It looks like the People of Faith, and Zoey's horrid step-loser in particular, are tired of living side-by-side with vampyres. But, as Zoey and her friends find out, things are not always what they seems. 

 

It seems that quite few people are complaining about this series. Honestly I don’t see why, I’m hooked to House Of Night Series. To me each book hooks me more to the series. It’s filled with action, suspense, mystery, romance and drama and that’s the kind of books that I love. Chosen did have some slow parts for me and not as addicting like the first two books. It did pick up fast though and then I couldn’t pull myself away from it. Even if I read this book before, once again the story pulled me in. Despite the story being a fantasy, everything that was going on felt real to me. Vivid. Breath taking. P.C& Kristin Cast know how to capture their reader’s interest. 


At this point I’m not sure how I feel about Zoey. Since Betrayed had bit of mixed feelings about her, part of me annoyed with her for what she done, another part of me still likes her despite that. I wasn’t too happy with her because she wasn’t cheating on Erik with one guy but two. Though I know that with Heath she couldn’t help it because two of them imprinted, but with Loren she should know better. I hoped that she would figure out that he was using her, that something was off about him. She should listened to Erik, or since she wasn’t being faithful to him, break it off with him, it wasn’t fair to Erik. She said she was falling in love with him, yet I have trouble believing that now. If she loved him, she wouldn’t even considering sneaking around with Loren. It felt like she didn’t care. I didn’t blame how Erik acted afterwards, yet part of me felt that maybe he was bit harsh. It seemed out of character for him. I had a feeling that keeping secret about Loren, Stevie Rae from her friends would blow up in her face. 


Stevie Rae & Aphrodite: Zoey wasn’t only one changed. Both Stevie Rae and Aphrodite changed quite bit through this book. Of course Stevie Rae was brought back to death so her I could see why. Though she said she was losing her humanity, I saw bits of it still there. When she talked to Zoey sometimes it felt like the old Stevie Rae was there, ready to come out. I believe if it wasn’t for Zoey not wanting to give up on her best friend, she would have lost it. Now Aphrodite, even if she didn’t want admit it, her and Zoey actually became friends in this novel, something that I didn’t see coming. I was actually surprised that she was willing to help her with Stevie Rae. Aphrodite went a long way since the first book. In beginning I hoped that she get what is coming for her, especially how she treated everyone. Now, she’s actually becoming one of my favorites. The ending, was wow. I did feel bad for her when her mark disappeared. I can tell that being marked, meaning something to Nyx is important to her. 


I’m eager to follow the next journey of Zoey and her friends. It’s going be long journey for Zoey in Untamed since most of her friends seemed to turn her back on her. Hopefully in the end they will have her back.
