This is the fourth book in the House of Night series and was by far the best book of the series. It is the only book in the series so far that I have felt comfortable saying I really liked it and enjoyed the story.
With the murders of the teachers in the third book things are beginning to come to a head in this book. Zoey is out of boyfriends, so to speak, so of course she is absolutely enchanted by the new kid in school, Stark. With Stevie Rae somewhat her normal self, she takes a back seat in this story but still plays a few big parts as a new type of vampire. The mythos developed in this story around the evil Neferet was engaging and very interesting. Neferet is here in all her evil glory; and man is she evil.
Zoey without boyfriends is awesome because Zoey is actually focused on the actual plot and this makes for a way more interesting book than the last one was. So, for everyone who hung on with the series despite the barely okay third book, you are rewarded in this book.

A book to kill time... but not very interesting

As both a romance and supernatural book... it falls flat compared to others. I've read some really good romance/supernatural books but this one.. it seems like a unrealistic book. Although its told in Zoey's point of view of things the other characters dont seem to have...
As both a romance and supernatural book... it falls flat compared to others. I've read some really good romance/supernatural books but this one.. it seems like a unrealistic book. Although its told in Zoey's point of view of things the other characters dont seem to have any real personality. I enjoy reading about Aphrodite because she is the only character with some real spark to her. I dilike how Zoey's freinds basically are her servants. I was happy that her freinds actually showed a realistic reaction to Zoey leaving them out of the loop but its like besides them following her every whim, the twins always just make sexual comments and fight with Aphrodite, Jack and Damien are gay although Jack is far to shy and Damien's uses big words. It just seems like the book is following some unknown plot that can basically be discribed as "Nefert= bad and plotting"+ "something awful/epic is going to happen" Theses books, if editted correctly and having pointless parts cut and characters dropped spoiler alert for characters *cough cough STARK/LOREN/JACK (since his only real use is during ceremonies)* it could be a 5 star one or two volume book rather then a drawn out +5 volume book.
In short Zoey is a over-glamorized Mary Sue with a ludicrous love life, leading an unrealistic life, with overly obediant/ and frequently not included in whats going on in the story, freinds.

I would recommend not reading this book if you are a true vampire lover. If you want original books I suggest Anne Rice books, Kim Harrison, Rachel Caine's Morganville Vampire Series, Charlaine Harris or if your just looking for a book you'll never want to put down I suggest Lucas by Kevin.

    A must read!!

    I completely loved Untamed!!! It's sequel to Chosen(fourth). First, all of her friends are mad at her(Zoey). Then all of a sudden, James Stark, known as Stark, comes into the picture, Zoey can't stop thinking about him. But shortly after he comes into Tulsa's House of Night, he rejects the change and dies in Zoey's arms. Then, Raven Mockers start to come around the House of Night and hurt Zoey and her Grandma. Zoey shortly knows that Aphrodite is a human again. Heath brakes up with her. Zoey and Erik Night kind of become friends again. A fallen angel is breaking from the Earth, named Kalona. Neferet is In on it. Speaking of Neferet, she declares war against humans, but that gets stopped. It was one of the best books of the series and one of the best books i have ever read! Hope you read it too!!!!! :)
