Bloodlust and dark forces are at work at the House of Night, and fledgling vampyre Zoey Redbird’s adventures at the school take a mysterious turn. Those who appear to be friends are turning out to be enemies. And, oddly enough, sworn enemies are also turning into friends. So begins the gripping third installment of this “highly addictive series” (Romantic Times), in which Zoey’s mettle will be tested like never before. Her best friend, Stevie Rae, is undead and struggling to maintain a grip on her humanity. Zoey doesn’t have a clue how to help her, but she does know that anything she and Stevie Rae discover must be kept secret from everyone else at the House of Night, where trust has become a rare commodity. Speaking of rare, Zoey finds herself in the very unexpected and rare position of having three boyfriends. Mix a little bloodlust into the equation and the situation has the potential to spell social disaster. Just when it seems things couldn’t get any tougher, vampyres start turning up dead. Really dead. But, as Zoey and her friends find out, things are not always what they seem…

Let me get some of the bad things out of the way right away. Zoey's non-cussing is becoming more of in issue therefore more annoying. Yes we get you don't like to cuss Zoey but MUST you say poopy? Or even worse "bull poop"?! I also wished that Zoey would realize that Stevie Rae wasn't the same anymore. There is a whole bunch of action in Chosen, more then any other of the books so far. All of Zoey's relationships are put to the test, too bad for her, she fails. But in the end I believe that Zoey grew as a person and is now able to start fresh by being truthful to her friends on NOT having three boyfriends. I hope she gets back with Heath, their relationship had more history and depth. Ohh my favorite character though would have to be Jack. Almost everything he does is adorable. I wanna give him a hug! Which makes me remember that all of the characters have pretty awesome personalities. Overall I think that Chosen was an event filled book that kept me turning the pages.

I agree with you on the non cussing thing. Ethier say it or don't. Don't go half way.

I loved this novel and I am so excited to be reading Hunted!

Great review!!

I haven't read this yet, but I have a necklace that looks like that. (Not sure where it is, though, but I'll find it.)
