The best-selling series has returned! Join P. C. and Kristin Cast in celebrating the 10th anniversary of the House of Night series by going on a thrilling new adventure with your beloved Nerd Herd.
It's Zoey's 18th birthmas, and the Nerd Herd has been scattered across the country, busily adulting for almost a year when Stark calls them back to Tulsa to surprise Z. But all is not well in T-town. Strange, dark signs are appearing - could it be possible Neferet is stirring? Not willing to chance disaster striking again, Zoey calls on her newly reunited friends to circle with her and add a layer of protection over Neferet's grotto jail. Easy peasy, right?
Wrong. Nothing at the House of Night is ever as it seems.
With rabid red vampyres closing in, Zoey and the Nerd Herd must come together again and battle evil. But a year is a long time. Have these old friends grown too far apart?
When the world fractures and allies become enemies, will darkness devour friendships, or will light save those she's loved?

With strange things pointing towards the stirring of Neferet, Zoey and her circle go out to cast a protection spell over Neferet’s grotto, but nothing seems to be that simple for Zoey.
I genuinely enjoyed reading this new series of the House of Night. As a teenager, years ago I read the first HoN series, recently just reread it, and can still say its one of my favorite Vamp series! I didn’t realize until years later (now), P.C and Kristin Cast continued this series.
The development of each character is great. I loved how Zoey is the most powerful young adult, and yet can show her imperfections and still own up to her mistakes in not knowing everything.
Without giving spoilers, my favorite part is the development of Aphrodite’s character throughout this book. It really shows how much she cares and equally, as much as she tries to mask.
I would definitely recommend this book. The series is a great read no matter how old you are!
Loved is the first book in the new House of Night Other World series. This book is basically a continuation of the 12 book House of Night series by the same authors. This is a YA paranormal series. I would say that this book is meant to be read after reading the rest of the original series. However the authors do summarize the characters and plot-lines at the beginning of Loved.
There will be spoilers from the House of Night series.
The main narrator is Zoey. She is turning 18. I sort of can't believe that after everything that she has gone through that she is only just turning 18.
This book features most of the popular characters from the previous books.
This book was actually not really what I was expecting. It really felt like more of the same stuff from the previous series. That series was so amazing at the beginning. But I felt like it went on too long. When I read that this was going to be about Zoey's birthday, I was actually hoping that it would be just all the friends getting together for her birthday. But instead it was more zombie/vampire fighting.
There were also a bunch of 3rd person POV chapters narrated by Aphrodite, Damien and others.
There were some characters that I was thrilled to see again. My absolute favorite character was Grandma Redbird. It was so nice to see her again.
There was also something super touching that happened with Damien that I loved.
Overall the story definitely got better in the second half. It was nice to see the gang again. But it definitely just felt like a continuation of the previous series.

Zombies? Vegans? Touching on depression? Though it's nice to see some diversity in books nowadays I cannot help but feel this was done purely to try and attract new readers to the story or tick some invisible boxes. I usually love Casts ability to make all feel included but this genuinely felt forced.
Where I was hoping to see the Nerd Herd through their change into fully fledged Vampyres it was completely glossed over. We start a year later to see Zoey stressing (which was the norm) and Erik practically being Shaunees lapdog? Why she even accepted him as a boyfriend after how he treated her 2 friends blows my mind. Damien is depressed, which I completely understand he's had a hard time over the course of the books. A good point about it all was Aphrodite's development, she was just touching and to see her develop was truly fascinating. Her shutting down her mothers twisted behaviour was truly a highlight.
Damien and Jack? Yes please, but it's still weird how everyone just accepts it so easily.
Zoey is still obsessing over Heaths death and is now debating on going into the "new" dimension to go see Other Heath? I think we all understand losing a loved one is hard, but surely she has been healing? Her time with Stark makes you question how much she truly values him as a Consort and as her Oath bound warrior? Did their moments together mean nothing, or was it Zoey using Stark to feel better about the loss of Heath?
Maybe it was just me, but I thought the whole other dimension was a bit much. There seemed to me no story/character development. The book seems to lack so much and considering how excellent her previous work has been I'm absolutely gutted about it.
I can definitely jump on the Other Kevin story line, however what about regular old Kevin? Why not try and bring Zoey and him together and then battle the Step Loser to allow them to have some sort of a relationship? You could even bring their church into it and have a big old ordeal about it all. Maybe though in some flash backs of their real dad? Opening a new dimension for me is a last resort.
Far too many point of view characters, like the waitress? Who was she, why was she important enough to warrant one? Waste of time really.
Would I recommend? I'm afraid not, it had so much potential and I was so excited to read it but it lacked in everything. However, I will still probably buy the next book as I'm a glutton for punishment lol.
You'll have to dive right in, and you'll be sucked right in again lol. I love the style of this mother and daughter team.
