Synopsis from Amazon:

"What if the hottest guy in the world was hiding a nameless evil and all he wanted was you?

At the start of this heart-pounding fifth installment of the bestselling House of Night series, Zoey's friends have her back again and Stevie Rae and the red fledglings aren't Neferet's secrets any longer. But an unexpected danger has emerged. Neferet guards her powerful new consort, Kalona, and no one at the House of Night seems to understand the threat he poses. Kalona looks gorgeous, and he has the House of Night under his spell. A past life holds the key to breaking his rapidly spreading influence, but what if this past life shows Zoey secrets she doesn't want to hear and truths she can't face?

On the run and holed up in Tulsa's Prohibition-era tunnels, Zoey and her gang must discover a way to deal with something that might bring them all down. Meanwhile, Zoey has a few other little problems. The red fledglings have cleaned up well--they've even managed to make the dark, creepy tunnels feel more like home--but are they really as friendly as they seem? On the boyfriend front, Zoey has a chance to make things right with super-hot ex-, Eric, but she can't stop thinking about Stark, the archer who died in her arms after one unforgettable night, and she is driven to try to save him from Neferet's sinister influence at all costs. Will anyone believe the power evil has to hide among us?"

My thoughts:

When a friend of mine first told me about this series, I thought 'what the heck.' I had the time and it was about vampires(I have this thing about the whole genre of vampires in general). I got through the first book and it was very good! Not the best I have ever read, but it was extremely entertaining and the writing was freshly different then anything I have read before, which I think adds to the books appeal.

Hunted is the 5th book in the House of Night Series and I was lucky enough to snatch it from the library because it just came out a month or so ago. It took up where the last book left off and I can't say it was the most interesting out of the whole series, but it kept my attention pretty strongly throughout the whole book.

Vampires, love triangles, special powers and untold evil-what more could you want out of a book? It's very easy to relate to the main character because we have all been there before(okay not the vampire and the fighting evil part) with the teenager problems like boys and self esteem issues. Granted, Zoey has to go through a lot more then that when she get's marked, but hey, were all different!

I give this book 3 out of 5 stars
