“Y’all need to get yourselves together. Here’s a newsflash from the only High Priestess you have left at this dang school: Zoey isn’t dead. And believe me, I know dead. I’ve been there, done that and got the fricken tee-shirt.
Zoey Redbird is the youngest High Priestess in House of Night history and is the only person – vamp or fledgling – that can stop the evil Neferet from raising all kinds of immortal trouble. And she might just have a chance if she wasn’t so busy being dead.
Well, dead is too strong a word. Stevie Rae knows she can bring her BFF back from her unscheduled va-cay in the Otherworld. But it’s going to take a lot more than hoping to bring Zoey back. Stevie Rae will have to give up a few secrets of her own . . .”

|Burned (House of Night Novels)|
I am a fan of the House of Night series, even though i don’t find it to be a spectacular series, specially compared to so many amazing YA series out there, I have always enjoyed reading the adventures of Zoey and her friends.
For that reason, it pains me to admit I did not enjoy Burned. I actually enjoyed the changes in POVs that featured on Tempted [House of Night, #6] and I was really looking forward to Burned and I can’t help feeling disappointed with the way it came out.
I feel like nothing really happened in Burned, that the story hasn’t really moved forward and we are just going around in circles. The characters don’t seem to be evolving and the book was sort of repetitive and it got tiring at times.
Another thing that also bothered me was the amount of cursing going on. Don’t get me wrong, i curse a lot, but everyone seemed to be cursing in this book and it felt like too much most of the time, it got me squirming in my seat.
Burned starts right where Tempted ended and the books takes place in less than a week’s time in the characters life. There wasn’t enough story to hold a full novel in my opinion.
There were a couple things I enjoyed, though. I like the storyline with Stevie Rae and I love seeing Stark around. Other than that, I found that I had to force myself to keep reading =/
I haven’t lost faith in the series though and I am going to read the next installment, Awakened.
