Chosen (House of Night, Book 3)
By P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast
The third book in the House of Night series, Chosen picks up shortly after Betrayed. Dealing with the secrets she has to hide from her friends, knowing that any knowledge of Stevie Ray's condition could put them, not to mention Stevie Ray, in jeopardy, Zoey decides the safest thing for all involved is to keep the secret to herself .... and Aphrodite. But that's not the only thing she has to deal with. Suddenly not only does Zoey have to deal with her bloodlust issues and dating three guys at once - Heath is still desperate to maintain their relationship, Erik is her vampire boyfriend and Poet Laureate Lorne Blake is making his intentions very clear.
The conflict between Neferet and Zoey deepens, almost hitting a crescendo with a startling discovery of just what exactly the high priestess is willing to do to destroy Zoey. Aphrodite becomes a frenemy of sorts to Zoey, something the group just can't understand with their limited knowledge of what is actually going on. Zoey has to come to terms with the realisation that her best friend - who is now the Undead dead - needs her help or her soul will be lost to darkness forever and that humans are stalking vampires and murdering them - causing the vampires at and students at the House of Night to become uneasy with humans being so close to them.
Tegan and I are looking forward to the next installment of this series.
