Burned (House of Night Series #7) by P. C. Cast, Kristin Cast

When friends stop trusting each other, Darkness is there to fan the flames….

Things have turned black at the House of Night. Zoey Redbird’s soul has shattered. With everything she’s ever stood for falling apart, and a broken heart making her want to stay in the Otherworld forever, Zoey’s fading fast. It’s seeming more and more doubtful that she will be able pull herself back together in time to rejoin her friends and set the world to rights. As the only living person who can reach her, Stark must find a way to get to her.  But how?  He will have to die to do so, the Vampyre High Council stipulates.  And then Zoey will give up for sure. There are only 7 days left…

Enter  BFF Stevie Rae.  She wants to help Z but she has massive problems of her own.  The rogue Red Fledglings are acting up, and this time not even Stevie Rae can protect them from the consequences.  Her kinda boyfriend, Dallas, is sweet but too nosy for his own good.  The truth is, Stevie Rae’s hiding a secret that might be the key to getting Zoey home but also threatens to explode her whole world.

In the middle of the whole mess is Aphrodite: ex-Fledgling, trust-fund baby, total hag from Hell (and proud of it).  She’s always been blessed (if you could call it that) with visions that can reveal the future, but now it seems Nyx has decided to speak through her with the goddess’s own voice, whether she wants it or not.  Aphrodite’s loyalty can swing a lot of different ways, but right now Zoey’s fate hangs in the balance.

Three girls… playing with fire… if they don’t watch out, everyone will get Burned.

When I first began to read this series I did enjoy the story. It drove me crazy in the first few books that the author repeated so much from the previous books (things that REALLY didn't needed refreshing on. I mean if you can't remember who the characters are you should just probably REREAD the books) but it wasn't enough to stop me from getting the next book. I will say I am done reading the books because I feel I am wasting my time. This book was the worst of the series. These books could have easily been written in trilogy without so much fluff. This never ending story needs an ending. I will choose to just read it up on the internet.

Burned was better than Tempted, which is a relief. I was under the impression the this book would conclude the series. This is not the case, my friends. Who knows how many more books there will be...These authors are obviously milking this idea for everything they can, which is understandable. I would too, I suppose. I'll give my opinion to you straight: Zoey isn't in this book. This is about Stevie Rae, bottom line. Her picture on the cover should be a dead giveaway. I'm a big fan of Zoey, so I am disappointed. I find Stevie Rae to be a stupid, silly little girl, and I'm 27 and find it hard to relate to that kind of character. A younger audience is going to love this book, but an older audience will be disappointed. Where is the depth? Depth will not be attained if the authors choose to write another book about Stevie Rae. Although, I will read the next book to find out what happens to Zoey, because I absolutely love her.

This is the seventh book in the House of Night series. I just absolutely love the cover and the fact they put Stevie Rae on the cover, that's almost exactly how I envisioned her to look like while reading this series. I liked this book but will admit it isn't my favorite in the series. It's a good book, don't get me wrong,it's action packed with the whole love thing I can't get enough of, but it just didn't have enough of Zoey for me. Zoey is my favorite character in the whole series, I do like the fact we got to see more inside Rehpaim's mind though, he is definately my second favorite character now. And it's awesome Stevie Rae is getting into the love thing lol more in this book. This book ties up a lot of things from the other books and now I'm super excited and can't wait to read the next book Awakened when it comes out. This series is like an obsession for me, I can't get enough. I'm now one of those fangirls I now despise lol! Not afraid to admit it! Zoey's soul has shattered after sending spirit to attack Kalona after he murdered Heath. Neferet has sent Kalona's spirit to the Otherworld to make sure Zoey never comes back. Meanwhile Stevie Rae is coming to terms with her imprint with Rephaim and the feelings they are starting to feel for each other. Stevie Rae is discovering that dark and light isn't always so clear, and decisions are sometimes hard to make. Aphrodite is coming to terms with being a prophetess of Nyx and discovering she could do more than she ever thought possible. Stark has found his bloodline and has found a way through it to try to save Zoey and become more than just her Warrior, he wants to be her Guardian, and realizes love can't fix everything.

It's like the series that would never end!!!! The first four books were ok and fun to read, but as the series goes on it gets worse. I really hate it how the chapters keep changing to different people. The language is atrocious (I mean most teenagers don't even talk like that in real life. At least they use swear words unlike "bullpoopie"). One critic said it was the next Twilight, but that's sooooo not true. It was a complete waste of time. If you want to read a mature (and I don't mean like mature=dirty) vampire novel then try the Vampire Academy Series.

I loved this series at 1st and they really are amazing books but I couldn't read this like I read the others. I usually read them fast and didn't want to put them down but on this one I had to put it down and I had to take a break cause there was some parts not needed and i'm not happy with having to wait another year or so just so the book won't come out great. It felt kinda pointless when not that much happen and I was expecting the ending. So yes it was thrilling and good but is it worth waiting for anymore? I loved the series but now i'm really not sure.

ALERT:Spoilers 4 those of you who have not read Tempted I cannot believe that they killed Heath. I will never get over that unless they find a way to bring him back. Who's with me?!

house of night series is very interesting and alluring. You find yourself immersed in the books and addicted to the series. I know i am. i highly reccomend. It's actually a little better than the Twilight Saga! The only problem is in the 2nd and 3rd book ( i've only read until the 4th) its a little bit too....slutty. Other than that it's exellent. i give it 4.5/5 stars! i can't wait to read the rest!

Though the House of Night series started out strong, about midway through it started on a downward trend. This book merely continues down the path the series unfortunately is heading. The book follows supporting, often underdeveloped, characters leaving the reader somewhat uninterested in what is going on. The heroine, Zoey, makes few appearances. When the readers do get to see her, they often wish they didn't due to her un-Zoey-like nature. The last few chapters save the book from being a total wash. The book would've done better if it were combined with the next book in the series, which would lend it some forward motion in an otherwise stagnant plot line.

I loved the twilight series because it was mostly romace and what girl doesn't love a good romance. But the house of night series really got me. I love the story and I love how the main character [zoey] deals with all these problems that we normally wouldn't and still deals with normal teenager crisis. I can relate with so many of the situations that the main character is brought up with and it gives me a feeling of comfort and helps me realize that maybe the situation isn't as bad as I think it is. Overall i think the books are amazing. Tempted was my favorite out of all of them because I cried and laughed throughout the whole book. I love the series and I can't wait until Burned comes out. I truly reccomend this series to everyone!

The book overall is an ok one.... i rather enjoyed reading it with my friends and then discussing it.....but my one complaint is Zoey's love life....what the heck is going on.....Heath...very annoying...... Erik......get over her.....Stark....date her already.......Zoey.....choose a guy and let the others move one.... you hold on to them...and it makes you look like a whore its not fair to them. Please Choose in Burned!

I first got this series randomly for my birthday because i wanted something to read. Didn think much about them until i started reading them and i could not put these books down!! They were filled with so much excitement i wished i was there too aha! With tempted i was really into it!(i love all the books too) but this one is amazing. She finally broke up with erick which i was like "finally"!! i personally think that stark is the best for her:). But when he turned her over and saw no tattoos i was like "whaaaaatttt"!!!!! i CANT WAIT for Burned!!! i am bouncing in my seat!!! Please-o-Please-o-Please keep writing kristin & P.C. :)

Read through them so fast that I thought I was in the book myself. Read each book in less than 6 hours. Couldn't find myself putting them down. The series is sooooo good. A+++++ to the author. The only thing negative I have to say is that they don't come out with the rest of them fast enough.

I have read all of these books and I am dying to see what happens in burned. When it comes out I probably will be one of the first in my city to get it. I love these books and highly recomend them.

This was absolutely one of the WORST books ever. Honestly the whole series was skanky. Zoey is NOTHING without her friends, NOTHING! You hear? I fell inlove with the first few books; Chosen, Untamed and Hunted. The rest? Please. I hated Cast's main character, Zoey. She is a complete skank. People say Erik Night is "Annoying, Possessive, etc." Well news flash for you honey!! It's what boyfriends do! They don't want they're girlfriends making out with just any guy! Heath is annoying, and so are all the other guys. Burned was completey a big dissappointment. Is it just me? Well it might. I couldn't stop complaining about how awful it was. I couldn't even get to chapter 4. I regret throwing away my receipt. The only thing I got from the whole entire series was to write a book myself. I just wish there was more romance and less slutty-ness. Sorry, don't take this the wrong way. My opinion.

This book was such a let-down. It was slow, hard to get in to, and frankly, pretty boring. It is very much a transition piece. The only new things introduced were the additon of the Light versus Darkness struggle. Zoey is skittering around in the Otherworld like a detoxing addict the whole time, Stark is working out his issues, Stevie Rae is in love with a half-human, half-beast Raven Mocker who HAS A BEAK FOR A MOUTH for goodness sake, and Aphrodite is still her usual self. There's very little from Damien, Jack or the twins in this book, which was a disappointment. I usually like hearing about their escapades. Unlike the other House of Night books, Burned has a lot of bad language. Why are these kids all of a sudden cussing like sailors? I feel like the Casts are trying to make their characters more grown up, and instead of DEVELOPING them, they just decided to make them cuss. Burned is a transition into the next line of the story, and I sincerely hope that Awakened (book 8) is a better book. Hunted and Tempted were too good for this series to go bad. The Casts better get crackin' on these books because I don't plan to be still waiting for House of Night books to come out when I'm 40!!

I've fallen in love with this series and if our a vampire book lover so will you! After finishing the 6th book, I've been pulling my hair out my head waiting for this book to come out. As soon as it did, i pre-odered right away! What's gonna happen to Zoey? Is Heath actually dead and can't be saved? What will Stark do now? Will Kalona begin the rise of a human vs. Vampire war? All these question will be flying in mine and yours heads! We'll see...
Mariah_Christine More than 1 year ago
I can't wait for this to come out; I've been dying to know whats going to happen now that (SPOILER) Zoey and Heath are 'gone'. I didn't like the ending of Tempted /: but I'm hoping that the Casts will make up for it with Burned. I'm team Stark, but I really enjoy love triangles/squares/(in Zoey's case) octagons. lol Heath was amazing though, I hope he comes back D: ERIK SHOULD'VE DIED INSTEAD. just saying.

I have been a fan of this series for a long time, but this book was just BORING! There is not enough action, Neferet is back in the school...Rephaim is torn between good & evil. Zoe is so tired of fighting...and so am I! I sold the whole series on ebay after I read this book. There is another sequel set up, but I won't be wasting my time or money.

I truly hope that the Casts decide to stop at Book 8. This book was a little confusing. What the hell did the bulls have to do with anything? Now the Stevie Rae and Rephaim twist, I like that because you see a little more character development with her. You also see that with Aphrodite. But seriously, now this series is like Zoey's soul during this book: Shattered. The story is seriously going nowhere. Also, I finally hope Zoey doesn't have any more guy drama. If she does, I will throw the damn book against my wall. The Stark thing was interesting, but the guy stuff should really end right there. I really hope Nyx didn't mean the series was just starting or else she and I will have a little talk.

I keep reading this series because every few books the author's surprise me and come up with something I enjoy. I shouldn't have been surprised after enjoying Tempted so much, that Burned would fail to impress me. I've really like were Aphrodite as a character has been headed the past couple books, but she took a turn for the worst in this one. I think she lost some of her attitude when she got around more powerful vampyres than herself. She's reverted to really horrible trash talk (I really disliked her calling everyone retard and various other forms of the word). And that's not the only really horrible dialogue in this book. And that was were most of my problem lies. There's way to much talk and not enough action (at the risk of sounding cliche). I did enjoy the entire time Stark, Zoey, Darius, and Aphrodite were on the Isle of Women. It gave a whole other dimension to the storyline. I also think that they got the most respect there. They weren't treated like children. I also really liked Stark's role in this book. He had to really prove himself beyond what I thought imaginable. Stevie Rae continues to confuse me. I'm not sure were she's headed in terms of character development. I worry that there is still some ingrained evil in her no matter how much she tries to deny it. I liked her relationship with the Raven Mocker. It showed a different side of her. I will continue the series, but I'm starting to get a little tired of it. 7 books with more to come seems to like to much. I want to see some sort of wrap up soon. I would recommend this one to anyone who has been reading The House of Night series thus far!

I like the house of night series but feel that the books are now loseing their edge that they used to have, and go to to many diffrent chareters P.O.V each chapter.The book is losing its spark probley as fast as its loseing its viewers.I do enjoy reading the house of night series just not as much as before in the begining before the wrtiing style changed.

Most of you have already said everything. I would like to point out how the author has changed some of the character's personality. Eric anyone? By the 5th book he was no longer the nice hunky guy but the possessive, jealousy, obnoxious punk. Maybe if the author didn't introduce 5 plus guys to Zoey she wouldn't have to get rid of them or kill them off one by one to state in the end who Zoey will end up with. I hope she doesn't bring anymore guys in this story! It is just becoming silly.
