This is the fifth book of the House of Night series and I'm totally addicted, I don't really want to give much away. Here's the synopsis of he book:
At the start of this heart-pounding new installment of the bestselling House of Night series, Zoey's friends have her back again and Stevie Rae and the red fledglings aren't Neferet's secrets any longer. But an unexpected danger has emerged. Neferet guards her powerful new consort, Kalona, and no one at the House of Night seems to understand the threat he poses. Kalona looks gorgeous, and he has the House of Night under his spell. A past life holds the key to breaking his rapidly spreading influence, but what if this past life shows Zoey secrets she doesn't want to hear and truths she can't face?
On the run and holed up in Tulsa's Prohibition-era tunnels, Zoey and her gang must discover a way to deal with something that might bring them all down. Meanwhile, Zoey has a few other little problems. The red fledglings have cleaned up well--they've even managed to make the dark, creepy tunnels feel more like home--but are they really as friendly as they seem? On the boyfriend front, Zoey has a chance to make things right with super-hot ex-, Eric, but she can't stop thinking about Stark, the archer who died in her arms after one unforgettable night, and she is driven to try to save him from Neferet's sinister influence at all costs. Will anyone believe the power evil has to hide among us?
You really have to read the books hey are a great series, they are no really for young readers but they are definetly great books. I can't wait for the next one which is coming out in October. there are still things that need to be solved in the book but I can totally see this being a tv show or even a movie like twilight just because there is so much more action and stuff going on than there was in the twilight series and these books seem more reality (well as far as vampires go) than in twilight. the main character is not so desperate and pathetic (don't get me wrong i LOVE the Twilight series sooo much). But the main character Zoey is more realistic in her life and the men and friends that she has to deal with. I just love the book and can't wait for the next one.
4 out of 5 stars
and that's only because i wanted more of an ending but then there might not be another book LOL.

Love the One You're With

Love the One You're With
I haven't read a book like this in a very long time. Usually I totally love chick lit, but this book was really really hard to get into. It didn't start getting good to me until the end of the middle of the book. It kind of dragged and I think took me way too long to read because I didn't feel like reading it at home. It wasn't a can't put you down kind of book. This is the first I've read of this author and it was just too wordy for me and I just couldn't connect with any of the characters they all seemed I don't know one dimensional and predictable. Not a book I would pick up again.
