Review: Hidden (House of Night #10) by P.C. Cast , Kristin Cast

At last, Zoey has what she wanted: the truth is out. Neferet's evil has been exposed, and the High Council is no longer on her side -- but she's far from done wreaking havoc in the vampyre world. First, a mysterious fire ravages the stables. Then, Neferet makes a devastating move that will test them all.
With the seeds of distrust sown and Darkness breeding chaos at the House of Night, everyone must band together -- but that's proving to be more difficult than ever before. The twins are barely speaking and the House of Night's former enemy, Kalona, has now become their warrior, pushing their trust to the limit. To top it off, Zoey is pretty darn sure she might be losing her mind. She saw something when she looked at Aurox through the Seer Stone that she can hardly explain to herself, let alone her friends. Is it possible that Heath has come back in a different form? Is that why Zoey's so intrigued by Aurox, when it's so obvious that he's dangerous? And who would believe her if she told them? Zoey knows that following her instinct about Aurox might be just what they need to defeat evil . . . but if she's wrong, it could cause the destruction of those closest to her.
With the tension at a breaking point and friendships on the line, can the nerd herd come together to stop the spread of Darkness before it's too late?

My Opinion:

This is the tenth book in the series..!! yep..! TENTH BOOK..!
This series is turning out to be a real drag..!
I guess the only reason I am still reading it is because I want to know the conclusion..! Not that it isn't predictable...but still..! Call it my guilty pleasure..*shrugs*

So...since the authors couldn't come up with any new twists and turns (Not that I blame them...10 books..!!)...they have started transferring the people from one group to another (the groups being : good people group and bad people group..!)..all in the name of  'people change' ! Apparently, Nicole is turning into a new leaf...while Erin is turning into a dark wild child.

The story hasn't progressed much. I feel rather sorry for Erik whose character has suffered soo..much at the hands of the authors...from a cute, strong, understanding a weak guy who has always taken the easier route. (Well,if it really were so...why would he ever take Zoe's side even when he knew it was fraught with danger?? Why opt to support Zoe even after they broke up..?? Doesn't sound like taking the easy path to me ! )

Kalona has finally chosen the path of the goddess...and well...since the authors work on the logic 'eye for a eye' , Erebus is turning into a nasty, jealous character.

The only progress in the story other than those mentioned above (if you can call them...progress!!) that Zoe finally figures out that Health's soul resides in Aurox.

In conclusion, this book isn't much of a read..!

So, well...that will be all from my rant counter today.  :P

My Rating:


  1. I love this book series...but like you, I have grown tired of it. I haven't read this one yet, I've been waiting on a good non-busy week. At least I've had a year break before this one because honestly, it has been drawn out so much!!! Thanks for the review! It was great and I agreed with you 100 percent!

  4. I used to really like this series, but then I started re-reading and seeing all the bad lazy writing, like how Damian can't say a single word without the fact that he's gay being mentioned the Cast's dependence on Deus Ex Machina to solve all the plot-hole problems. It had so much potential, but it all derailed at Hunted

  5. It was not that interesting. The story seemed to drag on for to long. What I mean is that there were no jaw dropping events, it didn't really hook me and make me keep reading. It was to similar to the other books and I could easily predict what was going to happen next. It could have been a lot better
