So this book is definitely up to the same standard as the first books in this series but definitely not as bad as Tempted that was more like filler than an actual book and then after a horrible filler story it left off with a serious cliffhanger. Not the best book...but this one kicks it up a notch and I am happy to see everyone working hard to get to a resolution toward the end of the book. I do not like the continued creepy visions of this and that and the like teasing that the author is doing, I mean, I know that teasing is part of a good story but this is starting to get ridiculous.

I enjoy the characters to an extent. I am starting to not feel the dialogue of the characters are bit, they sound to young in some parts but too old in others and it is messing me all up. Does any teen say bull-poopie? EVER? I almost closed the book and left it right there.

Other than the above, I really heart Stark and I am just to invested in this series to give up on it so...next up with be Awakened and I am hoping it is good. ( )

So damn good!!

I know a lot of you have given up on this series. After Hunted, I don't blame you. I almost gave up on it too. But, with Tempted (the last book) it picked up. A lot. And this book? Wow, it's as good as the first!! This book was SO good, the writing was phenomenal! So wherever you stopped in this series, just pick up Burned and give it another try.

You won't regret it. I have to finish this series! I ordered Awakened (the next book) as soon as I finished this!

I'm just shocked that a series can lose momentum this much and then bounce back SO strongly! I like that the new, or rather, old old ways were introduced. The bulls, the ancient power, all of that added a huge element to the already amazing mythology -- which is my favorite part of this series. The back story and mythology is so rich, I love that it just got better in this book! The Darkness (with a capital D) and it's smoky black tendrils, circling and waiting for an entrance...seriously? If that doesn't evoke excellent imagery...idk what does! This book played like a movie in my head. Those are my favorite kind of stories. ( )

The books are just so awesome! The plot has gotten so multilayered and each character is grown and changing as more and more challenges are trown at them. I'm very excited for #8 ( )

The story line in the House of Night series is interesting. I like a lot of the folklore and some of the twists and turns... but wow, the badly-written dialogue and awkward responses of some of the characters really detract from the story (like Damian and Jack randomly hugging whenever one of them actually does something mildly helpful - I can't see people doing that).

I liked the Scottish element and how the Isle of Women was handled. I like a lot of the basic plotting, but it is REALLY hard to get past the dialogue. Teenagers do not talk like that. And too many characters have nothing to do (the Twins, for example). ( )

I would recommend this book to other people. The characters are well developed and the plot is very good and many things come together throughout the book. I didn't want it to end. Just be ready for cliff hangers, and read all of the other books too or else you won't understand it. 5Q5P The cover art is awesome and I'd recommend this to middle and high school students as well as adults. I chose to read this book because the cover caught my eyes. Now I want the whole series! JackieK

Book description
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 Vampire 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.
