Review

"Read by Caitlin Davies, BURNED is just as addicting as the previous books in the series...Caitlin is able to keep the pace of the story fast and heart-pounding...Her voice was a pleasure to listen to and kept me entertained up until the final chapter." - TeensReadToo.com

Also, almost every character's POV is given.

Sometimes I think that the books should have stopped sooner so that way I could have be left wanting more but now I just want it to end.

Burned is the seventh book in the House of Night Series.

Listen, if you're looking at reviews for the 7th book in the series, you've probably read some of the previous books already so you know this: these books are like Twinkies. They're really terrible, yet are a sometimes delicious guilty pleasure. I hate myself a little more after every one I buy, yet I can't seem to stop myself either. I admit I even preordered this one. So coming into Burned, I fully expected to hate it... and was more than a little shocked to find I didn't. I even kind of liked it.

Okay sure, it's got 100% all of the flaws the other books have had... stereotypes, irritating banter, character indecision, hokey slang and dialect, and (particularly as seen in Tempted) a bit of a dragging plot.

But you know what it didn't have? A lot of Zoey! And almost none of the Twins! Halle-freaking-lujah! Instead it was filled with the characters I actually like best- Aphrodite, Stark, Rephaim, and (one I like to an extent) Stevie Rae. What can I say; the `bad' characters are the most interesting and by far the least annoying. The interaction between Stevie Rae and Rephaim is certainly the most interesting plot twist the authors have introduced, and this book is heavy on its development, with a lot of perspective from both characters. Stark also plays a predominant role, and while I thought the authors were a little weak on writing from his perspective (I think they seem to have a better sense of his character from outside of him), I still enjoyed his larger part in this book. Some readers clearly don't care for the frequent switching of narrators, but (aside from the Rephaim/Stevie Rae relationship mentioned above), I think it's the best thing the authors have done.

Also appears on The Screaming Nitpicker.

A little background info before I begin: I loved the first four House of Night books, though I still had my issues with them. When the fifth book came out, I wasn't fond of it, but it was decent. Tempted, the sixth book, was just awful. In accordance with my two book rule (in which one bad book in a series is a fluke, but two means that I will stop reading the series), Burned was going to be the big decision-making book. After reading this awful novel, I can safely say I am done with the House of Night series for good. The Casts will not make another cent off me.

After Tempted's cliffhanger ending, Zoey's soul has shattered and she's trapped in the Otherworld with Heath. As her friends scramble to being her back before her body dies, Neferet sees a chance to permanently eliminate the threat Zoey poses. Back in Tulsa, Stevie Rae is dealing with her Imprint on Rephaim and her fledglings, both good and evil.

The only positive aspect of this book was the mythology. The one thing that made the House of Night series stand out to me in the beginning was the unique mythology unlike anything else that was being written at the time. I thought the Scottish elements and the thing with the black and white bulls were blended in well with the Wiccan and Native American mythology already present. If it weren't for that, I would have dropped this series at the first book, so at some point, the books were bound to get so bad that the mythos couldn't keep me reading. This happened during Burned.

What bothers me the worst about this series? The language. Good God, the language. This novel is categorized as young adult (with an ages 12-18 target audience).

I was eagerly anticipating this book, but it is clear after reading it that the authors are merely dragging this story out for profit instead of the work itself. While the other six previous novels were paced well, this book drags. The idiotic and stereotypical language in this book is extremely annoying. The many different points of view border on the absurd. I can see introducing a couple of new povs, but everyone almost has a pov in this story and it leapfrogs between them.

You knew from early on in the book how Zoey's dilemma was going to be resolved so tension in the rest of the book suffers. I like the scenes between Rephaim and Stevie Rae, but overall just found the book lacking.

Hopefully the next book will be better.

I do not even know where to begin with all of the things that I HATE about this book. So I will just put it all down.
1. The book starts off from Kalona's pov like he is a good guy doing bad things-- come on guys, make up your mind on whether or not he is evil. And then you do not even hear about what he is doing until the end of the book almost. And Neferet, the baddie, is also missing from this book for much of the plot.

2. The characters in this book talk like 12 year olds who just learned how to use curse words. Everything is repetitive and explained over and over like the readers are at the 7th grade reading level. There were 7 different pov and all seven of those pov come to the same conclusions for their situation and then told each other about those same developments and then they all talked about those developments AGAIN with eachother. And then they each thought about what they had talked about. Most well put together novels sum up situations like this without boring the reader to death. They seemed to have used this annoying lack of technique to add pages to this installment since they lacked original ideas. They also used a lot of slang that they think is used in real dialogue and really this slang just makes a person embarrassed for who ever talks like thusly i.e. "skillz" was actually in a dialogue bit. Really.

3. I have disliked Zoey more and more since the 3rd book and, be that as it may, I would still rather have her pov rather than Simpleton Stevie Ray's. This book is mostly stupid, Stevie Ray's pov from Tulsa. She talks to spiritual bulls and worries about crap that has nothing to do with Zoey's part of the series at all. If she bothered you in Tempted, she will make you want to claw your eyes out in Burned. WHO CARES ABOUT STEVIE RAY ANYMORE?
