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.

First off let me now say my point first and foremost; this book is HORRIBLE!

Okay now that is out of the way I can speak about why.

The story lacked major interest. I have read all of the previous novels and actually starting getting annoyed by tempted. Is this series supposed to be an indication of the modern day teenage life? This is disrespectful. I am sick of their idea of Aphrodite being a foul-mouthed brat. Their language is out of place entirely and more than slightly annoying. I am nothing if not a realist and while I do understand kids and young adults are inclined to use foul language in this day and age, I am not a fan of the swear words popping around every sentence maybe three to four times each.

I did enjoy the different point of views for Stevie Rae and Rephiam. I did not enjoy the Stark chapters with all his whining, temper flaring and insults, nor did I enjoy, as you may already know, the foul mouthed Aphrodites opinions and statements throughout the book. Neferet's childish demenor and aspirations [I am going to rule the world and be Queen!] have gotten me more than alittle upset. Why not just deal with her already or have someone, anyone, attack her! At least there would be alittle surprise in the series if that happened. This is a stalemate.

But I did really enjoy the different view point for Zoey. Possibly because they were few and far between and actually gave off a feeling of being confused and lost, if alittle selfish.

I agree with others who have said this series is being dragged out for profit. How much more can you introduce before you get back to the point? This is so unnecessary! They kept releasing this garbage and expect us all to gobble it up. And whether or not we'd like to admit it, we are!
