I would like to say that after finishing all the books (that are available for now anyway!) from the Sookie Stackhouse series (the books behind the TrueBlood series on the television), that I would finally start to read something other than vampire lit…..sorry, but I didn’t!

The book I will now review is “Tempted by P.C and Kirsten Cast”.

I had forgotten how much I had enjoyed the previous books to this series, as it seems like a lifetime of waiting for this book to be released, but thanks to much wrangling of my sister and her boyfriend over Christmas presents (don’t ask, it involved this and call of duty!), I have managed to borrow this book, read it and reviewed it just past the new year (yes I know, it has taken me a while to post here!).

Tempted is book six in the series of books which centres around the “House of night”, a school for newly marked vampire children, and a place they can be taught vampire skills and kept safe.

But after the high priestess Neferet, joined forces with an age old fallen angel/demon Kalona, the house of night was not the safest place to be.

The book starts back with the main character Zoey Redbird, newly marked fledgling vampire/newly appointed vampire high priestess and somehow joined with the fallen angel Kalona from a previous life…….stick with me, it does get a little more complicated!

After banishing Kalona and Nepheret from the school, Zoey and her self appointed “circle of elements” and best friends, find themselves within the local convent with al the new, and recently undead fledgling vampires from school, the red ones.

After foreseeing Kalona’s plan to sell himself to the vampire high council as a fallen god Zoey knows she must stop him, in anyway she can.

Will she be able to stop him and thwart his and Neferets plan or will she be unable to do so falling back into her former life’s role as Kalona’s one true love…………

This book is a fantastic read, if not somewhat involved!

To read this book you will of course have to have read the previous five books in the series, or in fairness you will not have a clue as to what is happening, but when you have read them a lot of the information in this book will already be known to you, making it much less complicated to read.

All the characters are cleverly written, not only interspersing he fact that they have been newly marked as vampire fledglings, but also the fact that they are only kids themselves, so the fear of what they know they must do against the fear of being a teenager is tangible to the reader.

The book is what I would deem as a teenager book, very much in the same vein as the Twilight books, though with a it more action, though none of it overtly sexual, probably no more than a typical teenager would be thinking about anyway, but caution should be exercised anyway!

This is a lovely book, though after reading various other vampire books, not quite as good as I remember, not bad though!

Pricewise this was purchased for the sum of £9.99 hardback, but I am sure wold be available for much less on

Thanks for reading x

I can't keep up with all the different vampire books at the moment. Blood overkill!
