Hunted: House of Night Book 5 (book review)

written by P.C. Cast & Kristin Cast.

I read the first 4 books in the House of Night series last year.  It seems you can't turn around without running into a series about vampires.

I won't lie... these books are no Twilight.  But... I really enjoyed them.  I was also thrilled to find out that even though I pre-ordered the paperback book (release in March) I was able to download the Kindle version now.  Another Kindle perk.  I feel like I'm cheating a little bit.

I want to compare this series to a Beverly Hills 90210 meets Sweet Valley High meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer (although I don't know if that's quite right).  The series is VERY high school.  If you take out the fact that all of the students at the House of Night (their boarding school) are vampires you have all of the normal drama and angst of any high school series.  Boy trouble, bitchy girls, jealousy, etc, etc, etc.  But, these do mix in vampires... and everything that goes along with them.

That said... I like these books.  I start reading and I have trouble putting them down.  I carry the book around and read whenever I have a couple minutes.  And, although most of the reviews I've read on this series are not glowing... I like this series.

I will totally admit I enjoy reading young adult fiction.  It's easy to read.  It doesn't take a lot of time.  It doesn't tend to take a lot of brain power.  So... while chasing Zoe and Ana around... young adult fiction is just my speed right now.  Expect lots of it on my reading list. 

Has anyone else read the House of Night books?  Did you enjoy them?  Love them?  Hate them?
