Awakened by P.C and Kristin Cast Book Review

Awakened by P.C Cast and Kristin Cast

Publisher: St. Martin's Griffin
Publication Date: January 4, 2011
Pages: 290
Interest: Series (House of Night Book 8)

Synopsis: At the start of Awakened, the pulse-pounding eighth installment of the bestselling House of Night series, Zoey has returned, mostly whole, from the Otherworld to her rightful place as High Priestess at the House of Night. Her friends are just glad to have her back, but after losing her human consort, Heath, will Zoey—or her relationship with her super- hot Warrior, Stark—ever be the same? Stevie Rae is drawn even closer to Rephaim, the Raven Mocker with whom she shares a mysterious and powerful Imprint, but he is a dangerous secret that isolates her from her school, her red fledglings, and even her best friends. When the dark threat of Neferet—who is coming closer and closer to achieving her twisted goal of immortality—and Kalona returns, what will it take to keep the House of Night from being lost forever, and what will one desperate girl do to keep her heart from being irreparably broken?

            It’s good to read another great book from these two great authors. The plot is enjoyable but it’s not my new favorite among the series. At first I find it semi-slow paced and I feel like I could shout at Zoey to get on and solve the problem and be a high priestess. It’s also good to read different points of view from the characters in able for me to have a better look at the plot.

            Since I’ve read Burned, I’ve expected a lot from this book like more action and faster pace of the scenes but it didn’t meet all my expectations and I hope the next one will be a lot better. But I love to see a big improvement in Stevie Rae and Rephaim’s relationship. Well it’s the one that I’m keeping an eye on instead of the love affairs of Zoey.

            I was a little bit disappointed because I didn’t hear a lot from Zoey in this book, I mean there’s no big heroic thing she have done unlike the previous ones. But I’m happy that Stevie Rae got a lot of shots this time. Stevie Rae rocks and she’s my new favorite.

            Since the ending has a cliff hanger touch to it, I would definitely look forward for the 
next book.

Yep, Burned was fantastic and I was a bit disappointed after reading Awakened... Stevie Rae's story is so much more interesting than Zoey's, so I really like her,too!
