Book Review: Tempted by: P.C. and Kristen Cast

Summary: So…you’d think after banishing an immortal being and a fallen High Priestess, saving Stark’s life, biting Heath, getting a headache from Erik, and almost dying, Zoey Redbird would catch a break.  Sadly, a break is not in the House of Night school forecast for the High Priestess in training and her gang.  Juggling three guys is anything but a stress reliever, especially when one of them is a sexy Warrior who is so into protecting Zoey that he can sense her emotions.  Speaking of stress, the dark force lurking in the tunnels under the Tulsa Depot is spreading, and Zoey is beginning to believe Stevie Rae could be responsible for a lot more than a group of misfit red fledglings.  Aphrodite’s visions warn Zoey to stay away from Kalona and his dark allure, but they also show that it is Zoey who has the power to stop the evil immortal.  Soon it becomes obvious that Zoey has no choice: if she doesn’t go to Kalona he will exact a fiery vengeance on those closest to her.  Will Zoey have the courage to chance losing her life, her heart, and her soul?

OMG. I literly put that book down about two and a half seconds ago and actually pretty much threw it as I closed the last page. I am extremely disappointed in this book. It tells the reader basically nothing they didn't know before, it felt like filler, nothing but words to fill up the empty space between books. It was entertaining and an ok story but it did absolutely nothing for the plot of the series. I am completely depressed by this, there were plenty of opportunities to expand the story and plot line and to make it more fascinating (vamp high council, come on) and *SPOILER* to kill off Heath at the last second of the story as well as freaking crash out Zoey in the last paragraph...I mean I know she isn't dead but that was unnecessary.*END SPOLIER* The book started out way out of sync from the last book in my opinion as well, it was almost like I totally missed something, even though it started exactly where the last book left off. Then as it progressed, the book was mainly nothing more that Zoey arguing about her boyfriends, the same as the last book, and then doing one or two things here and there. I fell in love with this series from Marked and I really think this book is what killed it for me, I might re-read it and try again, or I might hang up my hat and not continue on with Zoey Redbird's boyfriend misadventures.
