This is the fifth book of the House of Night series. Do not read the following synopsis unless you have read the four previous books!
The good news: Zoey’s friends have her back again and Stevie Rae and the red fledglings aren’t Neferet’s secrets any longer. The bad news: Ancient evil with the face of an angel has been let loose – that and various other nasties (whose faces aren’t so angelic). Grandma Redbird is in trouble. Heath is in trouble. The House of Night is in trouble. Okay, let’s face it – Zoey’s whole world is in trouble! But when the trouble comes from a being who appears to be beauty personified, will the world believe it? Especially when only a teenager and a group of misfits are the only ones who really understand the danger he brings. Will Zoey have the strength and wisdom to reveal the truth? Especially when, in the House of Night, the truth is often hard to come by…
Information from Goodreads.com
Hunted, by P.C. and Kristen Cast was a great book for the House of Night series. It was my favorite out of the five that I have read so far, closely followed by Marked. It is from Zoey Redbird's point of view, a vampire fledgling that is super-blessed by the Vampire Goddess Nyx.
The plot in Hunted was incredible(compared to Cast's other novels I have read). Where the other books were simply 200 pages of recapping what has already happened, and then finishing the book off with something new, Hunted took off right where Untamed (House of Night book #4) left off and continued from there. It didn't dwell on the past any more than a normal book does to remind you what was going on.
The characters in Hunted developed significantly in Hunted. There wasn't as much development as I would have liked to see with certain characters, and Cast definitely could have focused on this more.
The setting is described in a way that you can understand it, and picture in your head. It takes place at the House of Night, the tunnels under the depot, and a few new places.
