Book Review: Tempted, 6th in the House of Night Series
If you have not finished this book, do not read this book review - it will spoil it for you! Tempted is book six in the House of Night series and begins after Zoey and her friends have banished Kalona and Neferet, Zoey and Stark are both recovering, the nuns and vampires are friends, and it is clear that Stevie Rae is keeping some really bad secrets about her red vampires and a bigger secret - a raven mocker.
Zoey continues to struggle with her memories from her life as A-ya, multiple loves, which annoys many adult readers, and her new found powers. Stark is struggling with his ability to protect Zoey, Aphrodite and Darius are getting serious, and Zoey and her friends go to see the high council. The death in the last chapter breaks your heart, and leaves Zoey shattered.
The whole book seems to span about a week in their lives and at the end, I felt like it was a little formulaic and a rip-off, teasing readers with the next book, without much substance. I was disappointed, but it was a fun read.
