Current Reading Mood: Urban Fantasy
Quote of the day: “I’d have been dead a long time ago if not for my friends, one of whom had just jumped off the cliff after me.
I’d have been a lot more appreciative if he hadn’t pushed me first." Cassandra Palmer ― Hunt the Moon by Karen Chance

Chosen by P.C Cast

Chosen (House of Night, #3) Chosen by P.C. Cast

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

For those who haven't read the first two this may contain some spoilers.

(This is also one of the ones I've read a white ago but forgot to post).
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. It looks like the People of Faith, and Zoey’s horrid step-father in particular, are tired of living side-by-side with vampyres. But, as Zoey and her friends so often find out, how things appear rarely reflects the truth…

My thoughts:
After reading the first two books in this series I rushed straight into the third with much excitement and anticipation. In the third book Chosen, Zoeys pretty swamped with secrets. She hasn't told the rest of her friends that Stevie Rae is not so much dead, but undead, cannot help but snack on humans. She can't tell her friends because their minds are vulnerable for Neferet, the high priestess, she can listen in to anyone when she wants and since Zoey she starting to suspect Nefert isn't as nice as she pretends to be she can't take the risk of telling them, even thoguh she know they would never tell purposely. Aphrodite is the only one who's mind isn't vulnerable to intrusion.

Not only does Zoey's new blood lust seem to be growing (which is unknown for a fledgling of only two months to have), her imprinting with her human ex-boyfriend Heath and her relationship with her new vampire boyfriend Erik is becoming complicated more so than ever.And if that wasn't enough she's starting to be seduced by the gorgeous and cool professor Loren, which leaves her breathless.
As always I love these books and the characters. I love how they interact emotionally and their humor seems to always work for me. I've adopted the phrase "Easy-Peasy" from the twins. lol! The emotional scenes were brilliant. I found myself crying in the book a few times. It was one of my favorites so far from the series. It's worth the read, but I recommend starting at the first edition (Marked).
