Chosen (House of Night #3) by P.C. Cast



I give this Book 3 out of 5 stars

Description: Dark forces are at work at the House of Night and fledgling vampyre Zoey Redbird’s adventures at the school take a mysterious turn. Those who appear to be 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 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 and rare position of having three boyfriends. Mix a little blood lust into the equation and the situation has the potential to spell social disaster. Just when it seems things couldn’t get any tougher, vampyres start turning up dead. Really dead. It looks like the People of Faith, and Zoey’s horrid step-father in particular, are tired of living side-by-side with vampyres. But, as Zoey and her friends so often find out, how things appear rarely reflects the truth…

While not the best vampire series, I’ve enjoyed it so far.   But the 3rd in the series has definitely not been my favorite.   I can’t exactly pinpoint what it is that made this book less than than the first two.   Maybe it’s the “teen” talk that seems to be way over the top.  Or maybe its the strange relationship between teacher and student that doesn’t seem quite plausible.  I also didn’t quite like how fast Zoey’s friends seemed to drop her after the discovered she had been lying.   Seems second chances aren’t given in the House of Night.   I did enjoy the development of Aphrodite’s character and what might actually be a friendship between Zoey and her.  I also liked the strength Zoey is showing.   Her powers would be a lot for any teenager to handle and think so far she’s doing a understandable job taking it all in stride.
