Tempted, by P.C. & Kristin Cast

Vampire lovers take note, St. Martin’s announces the newest release of the NYT’s best-selling author duo P.C. & Kristin Cast, Tempted from the House of Night Series. This mother-daughter writing team are a a major force in teen fiction, have over 3 million copies of their books in print and have a movie deal in the works.

Since I have not yet read this series, I went looking for reviews. They all rave:

“Move over, Stephenie Meyer.” –People on Hunted

“Zoey Redbird’s first-person adventures take on added danger and importance in the latest House of Night release. Forced by circumstance to grow up quickly, Zoey’s emotional and spiritual evolution is fascinating. The Cast duo breathes life and vibrancy into the characters and makes each one an integral part of the saga. Awesome and unforgettable as always!” —Romantic Times (4.5 stars) on Hunted

“The Cast duo has done it again! These ladies appear to be an unstoppable force within the world of YA literature… Teenage readers will be drawn to Zoey’s everyday, angst-riddled life. Not only does she need to save the world, Zoey needs to solve some major vampyre/human boy drama. These stories are surreal, yet shockingly accurate when it comes to teenagers and their lives.” – (5 stars) on Hunted

“Teenage issues can seem like life or death, but in this haunting series, House of Night, that’s really the case. Through Zoey’s eyes readers are led into a world that’s getting more complicated by the minute, where friends and enemies can switch positions in a heartbeat. The remarkable Cast duo continues to build a world that you won’t soon forget!” –Romantic Times (4.5 stars) on Chosen

“This highly addicting series offers a unique twist on the standard vampyre story….These books will have the reader laughing hysterically and sobbing unreservedly –sometimes all at once.” –VOYA on both Marked and Betrayed

“Marked is one of the best coming of age stories to come out of Oklahoma since S. E. Hinton’s The Outsiders. It teaches about the beauty of being a social outcast, friendship, and finding your own inner spirituality.” –The Beltane Papers

“Readers will identify with many of the characters, especially the protagonist.” –Library Journal on Marked

  1. Great minds. I just finished the first in this series, Marked. They have sort of turned Vampires into pagan worshippers. I’m not quite sure yet how I feel about the story yet.

    1. Nessa — I’ve not read these yet. I was wondering because of the comment about the girl finding her own spirituality within herself. Most of my paranormal reading choices have good pitted against evil in the Christian tradition. Anything else makes me uncomfortable as well.
