Zoe&Co Inc. are back in yet another been-there-read-that installment of the House of Night. In this episode Scooby Doo and Crew are trying to expose Neferet to the council (yet again) and find out what really happened on the night of Z's mom's murder.
Surprisingly Destined had an individual story arc. Something that has eluded past installments for quite a few books. Unfortunately good bones aside, Destined is written in the prose of the truly awful. I understand that Zoe and company are supposed to be typical trendy teenagers with relevant age appropriate voices, but the slang only manages to come across immature and ignorant instead of current. I get that the authors are trying to create irony with characters like Kramisha but it just doesn't work and becomes demeaning. The real irony is how an english teacher and an accomplished poet managed to compose the most inelegant, inarticulate, uneducated sounding young people ever immortalized in a published work. Along with bad dialogue the Cast's somehow consistently manages to turn what should be a shared reader/character experience of the emotional upheaval and devastation that occurs after death, into a load of corn and camp. I wish they would stop trying to mix grieving with pop references, not only does it diminish the impact of the situation, but it makes the whole passage awkward to read.Read more ›
I think I should turn these books into a drinking game: every time the characters speak like they are the lolcats, or as if they are 12 (essentially the same thing), or the Casts make a ridiculous pop culture reference in an effort to sound hip & cool: DRINK! I think it would make the books far more entertaining & quite possibly will help with the headaches I'm sure I'm giving myself from all of the excessive eye-rolling I do while reading these books.
Meanwhile, if you're reading a review for book 9, I'll assume you're read books 1-8 so I'm not spoiling anything for you here. My review for this book is that NOTHING HAPPENED! Okay- a few new characters were introduced, but in the grand scheme- nada.
We saw how Zoey's mom died, but since we already got to watch that live & in action in the last book- wow. There was chaos- CHAOS I tell you- except that it wasn't, really. It's been 9 books, people are going to get on each other's nerves (certainly they are on my nerves so I'm happy to see they are on each other's as well). Neferet's still evil, Aphrodite still has visions that never come true, Rephaim is still a birdboy (again- learned that in the last book)... there was just no. forward. motion. Mostly there was a lot of the characters sitting around talking about how stressed out they were- FUN!
There was one big reveal that was so obvious from the first moment the character stepped into the book that it was as anti-climactic as the Kardashian's divorce (that bit of pop-culture was just for the Casts. I'm sure they're working it in to the next book right now- DRINK!).
I don't know why I keep reading these. I have to go clean my brain out now...Sorry.
