3.0 out of 5 stars Sometimes I wonder about Zoey..., April 22, 2008
This review is from: Chosen (House of Night, Book 3) (Paperback)
Chosen is the third book in the House of Night series. When we left off Stevie Rae, was fighting to keep hold of her humanity and Zoey was doing her best to help her. Zoey was also dealing with being the leader of the Dark Daughters and with having 3 guys interested in her.

One of the things I really didn't care for in this book was, besides the way Zoey kept calling herself a ho because she was "involved" with 3 different guys (one of who is a teacher and she sleeps with) is how her friends jump and turn on her, at one point. They jump on her because they didn't know she didn't care for Christmassy themed birthday presents (she had told Stevie Rae) and because she kept the truth about Stevie Rae to herself, not telling them she was alive.

As to the 3 guys, Heath should of been gotten rid of in the first book, he's immature and totally unsuited for Zoey (even before her change). Erik is a self absorbed snot nosed jerk who can't see beyond he's own ego and jumps to all sorts of conclusions with Zoey after he catches her with Loren, who had sex with Zoey, just to wrap her around his little finger and to make her jump when he said to.

Compared to the other two books, this book was disappointing in that Zoey's friends are a bunch of hypocrites, Zoey herself is even more of a Mary Sue, and out of all the people in this series, Stevie Rae and Aphrodite are the only ones who have shown any growth or complexity.

I'm willing to give the next book Untamed a try, but I think this series is starting to go down hill.
