Here s what I meanNote, I m including a shitload of quotes to help prove my point There are few spoilers, but still, if you really don t want to spoil the experience , don t read beyond this point. 1 Let s be patronizing to the tweens, the poor darlings So it seems that the Casts are using their age old trick of trying to tell their fans, you re not alone, not only do my characters not have three dimensional personalities, but their vocabulary is atrocious as well Presenting A whole new level of Telling and not Showing Aphrodite Gay Boy s all atwitter, or atitter, or whatever But a few pages later You are no good at espionage at allApparently, Aphrodite s vocabulary is bad, but sometimes quite good Hmm Depth, or inconsistency Let me give you a hint it s the latter It s about time the House of Night is aware that there are prodigious forces of good working on our side against all that Darkness Prodigious means real big Stevie Rae translated.Translated What did they think she was speaking, KlingonErik, you re not making it any better by being a misogynist Misogynist that s bad right Nothing cool, like a gynecologistJesus Christ This man, folks, was a teacher A teacher Not knowing what misogynist means is one thing, and thinking a gynecologist has a cool job is another What is this man, 11 years old Sometimes I wonder why the Casts persist in turning him into a child Damien tapped quickly on his iPad and lifted it so we could all see TORN ASUNDER TORN TO PIECESHey Hey Damien I ll tell you where you can shove your iPad Up yourGood Some people say fuck yoga I say fuck figurative language And no, I don t mean that figurativelySo, you meant it literally.And this, ladies and gentlemen, was the source of ten whole minutes of laughing my buttocks offFiguratively. 2 Preach, sista Preach it So in this latest installment of the House of Night series, the Casts put in an effort to impart wisdom to the younglings The entire book is convoluted with thinly veiled, precisely spelled out for you advice You have to give the Casts credit for trying What you have the admit thought, is that it s difficult to take these authors seriously when these are the very same people who seemed to be perfectly okay when Aphrodite forced a blowjob on Erik Raping a man, apparently, is okay, but free will Oh HELLZ NAW And so we much PREACH IT AGAIN AND AGAIN 3 Let s all just watch our friend Erin turn evil, like there s nothing we f cking can do The twins spoiler separate into different paths in this book, in an obvious attempt to add depth to the characters What puzzled me greatly, however, was that her own sister watched Erin descend into an abrupt, out of character descent into the darkness, without doing any bloody thing about itErin s colors are different than they used to be I noticed it a couple of days ago She s changing, Aphrodite said. WELL GO AND TALK TO HER, YOU INCOMPETENT SORRY ASS TWATS All they do in the book is speak of Erin behind her back, wonder what is going on instead of thinking, hey, let s stop being self absorbed in our own worlds and turn our attention to a friend that CLEARLY NEEDS DIRECTION Surprise, surprise, the goddess Nyx isn t the only one who can show people the way To my knowledge, friends are there to help each other in dark times Fat lot of help you guys offered 4 Soul sucking, death inciting, mind bogglingly retarded dialogueHe squeezed me That s cool, as long as you don t start bawling The whole snot cry thing you do is seriously unattractive I punched him playfully I never cry Oh, yeah, that s right, and you never snot, either, he said, smiling his cocky, cute grin at me I know Amazing, right I teased Riiiight He drew the word out. Ohmygod, I don t want to burn this book Amahzing rightt gaiz RiiiightThanatos smiled I am most appreciative I am in agreement with her, Damien said I am in agreement with you, my beauty, said Darius grimly Who the hell says I am in agreement with you Sometimes the Casts try and sound relatable Other times, they are so unrelatable, they might as well be aliensWe need to tell Thanatos, also, Aphrodite said as the three of us started to walk toward her classroom Her affinity is Death It makes sense that she understands ghosts or whatever Why don t we just put it in the Tulsa World and have Neferet write a damn Q and A about it I said That s almost a cuss word Watch yourself Damn is an entry word Next thing you know, fuck will be flying out of your mouth, Aphrodite said Flying fuck That just sounds wrong, Stevie Rae told her, shaking her head. Hey Hey guys Cough Sorry, I honestly couldn t help it guys 5 Holier than thou Zoey Redbird, spouting condescending bullshit everywhere Cracks fingers Let s get started shall weJust because the cat wasn t one of yours doesn t make its death any awful Erik sounded way mature than usual.Shaylin thought about that for a while, and I sipped my brown pop I was actually liking talking to her.We hearted us some Chera Not only was she vampyre level beautiful, but she was an actual person, versus the usual plastic talking heads news anchor types And Nicole, as in the Nicole who was a super mean red fledgling and Darius skanky, hateful girlfriend, was collapsed on a bench with a couple of human EMTs hovering around her like she was some gold winged baby Jesus6 Lastly, the ever self absorbed ZoeyI wanted to go with my friends and help them get the stabled cleaned up I wanted to find Stark and have him hold my hand and tease me about over worrying and the Internet health symptom googling Mostly I wanted to forget about the stupid Seer Stone around my neck and focus on something that made sense like hateful red fledglings and homework But I knew Thanatos had been right We would need all out gifts to have a chance at even keeping Darkness at bay Now, I know where the Casts were heading for All that whining of I m too young to save the world and crap was to show that Zoey was changing and evolving That instead of doing what she wanted and what was normal to her, she chose the difficult path.What bugs me, however, is the need to show whiny Zoey at all We spent the last NINE books in the company of whiny Zoey Do the Casts not think, hey, if Zoey were to immediately react with maturity, responsibility and intelligence, our readers would realise for themselves that Zoey is growing up What continues to bug me is the need to spell everything out GOOD VOCAB HERE AWESOME LIFE LESSONS MATURITY IN A TEENAGER LOVE IS THE ANSWER It s too much, too dull, too repetitive and completely unsophisticated It s patronizing and painful to read This book was just another wash, rinse and repeat of the same treatment from the Casts, and I don t think anyone was surprised or will be surprised by it at all.Phew I m done I hope the review helped anyone out there curious about Hidden This was one long ass review, and it feels terrific to get it off my shoulders In my opinion, don t waste your money on this when you have books like Daughter of Smoke and Bone and Unearthly For now, I m just going to find other means to forget the torturous experience of reading another HON novel. Sometimes I wonder why I keep reading this bookI feel so frustrated by the writing sometimes, it just UGHHHHH.If I were Zoey and her friends, Neferet would be DEAD I mean, why doesn t Stark just use his magical ability of not being able to miss a shot to shoot Neferet in the head, and she d be dead I mean come on, Stark, if you wanted Zoey to be happy you d kill Neferet and take her out of her misery Make her happy Unless he wants her to be miserable so he can comfort her Oh Stark you sneaky little Anyways kill her And all their troubles would go away But NOOO, you just had to drag it into TEN and possibly eleven or twelve books They could ve even used a gun or like killed her in her sleep, like who cares she s the High Priestess Do you want the whole world to end up in her hands I just want to know what s going to happen in the end edit jan 22, 2013even though neferet s immortal, couldn t you just launch like an explosive nuclear arrow at her I heard there were going to be 15 books in total in this series I really don t understand it They could have easily taken the plot, started with it from the beginning and finished with it five books ago, minusing the abbreviations BFF Really and awful comparisons to movies shows True Blood, Avatar, Glee The last few books have been complete drags with nothing happening that is beneficial for the ending as I see it.The writing is so obnoxiously written Teenagers do NOT act like that Aphrodite is the most exaggerated bitch I have ever read about Zoey s life is obviously perfect, though she tries to believe it otherwise by constantly repeating how awful she is at geometry and parallel parking At least a good proportion of the male characters take a love interest with Zoey, the new, different fledgling with great powers, so like the stupid heroine she is, she decides to date every guy and is utterly heartbroken when her hot BF dumps her Tragic Someone just give these authors a manual on real teenagers and situations, please.The dialogue is poorly written Zoey s friends are sometimes perfect than herself and are completely useless cardboard cut outs which, by the way, there is an excessive amount of characters to keep track of any However, every single damn character is written out of perfection in this book Except Erik, they wanted to get rid of him quickly to make room for Zoey s new love interest, Stark, so they randomly decided to make him a possessive, psycho boyfriend.At least the cover is nice.Why do I keep coming back to these books view spoiler....,,,. ,., ,,., , ,,,. , , ,,. ,.,%, %.,. , hide spoiler if youpeople are going to curse and be all mean about it the there is an eassy solution DONT read it and by the by there is no hating but loving and you cant just hate Zoey and Heath and her granda and everyone and want them to die but love Stark you people are just messed up why dont you people get a life and stop being haters yall cause haters are going to hell not like I wouldnt like tosee you there and all, but still like Stark said I wonder if I shout and arrow and think of an ass I wouldnt besurprised if it hit YOU Erik , and I m talking to all the haters to anyting about the HON setiesNOW with the possitivesThe HON series are AWSOME cant wait gor the 10th book HIdden to come out I ll just die when it endsooh by the by if you need something to read while you wait till the next book is out read the GONE series by Michel Grant and the Matched triology essay to remember matched and marked are similar title plus the second book is called crossed kind of like choosen so you will remember if you think hard enough and have a brain so there I said everything in my mind about the comments you were putting and the new series I was reading andnot All about the series cause there is not enough words to describe how aswome the HON series are thanks for the genius who wrote them me out This is for those of you who have made mistakes, and who are brave enough to correct them, and wise enough to learn from them2.5 stars Believe it or not, that was the dedication at the front of the book I think the Casts could probably turn their dedication back around on themselves, seeing as how they ve taken the fan complaints to heart and reigned in some of the most blatant issues with House of Night.Yes, I know I m still reading this trainwreck of a series Hard to believe, isn t it Sadly, this is one of my few guilty pleasures that I can t seem to quit Plus, it s almost over now I have to see how it ends I could write a review for this book but my thoughts would mirror exactly what I said here about book 9 Other than the always ridiculous stereotyping of Kramisha and overuse of offensive words such as how to use retard in various forms from asstard to fucktard really I get that young people insult each other for fun but there couldn t have been something else to use for the sake of realism other than retard , I seem to be mellowing out when it comes to the House of Night crew I have to just take these books for what they are a series full of characters who I love to hate and hate to love, along with a bunch of annoying stereotypes all wrapped up in a package of fun adventures I may roll my eyes at times, but at least I m not bored It s no secret that I ve never been a fan of Zoey but I have grown fonder of Rephaim, Kalona, Stevie Ray and Aphrodite Aphrodite had a few of my favorite linesOh for shit s sake, who hasn t tried to kill you Or Zoey Or me for that matter Get over it It puts the lotion in the bucket I m so happy that the twins have been split up They re both interesting, now that they re not fused together One is becoming the wise sage, while the other is becoming the dark wild child Shaunee to KalonaSeems like knowing how many kids you have is a good place to start in the whole I d like to be a good dad thing Erin goes girls gone wildSounds good to me I like wearing nothing but water Erin peeled off her thong Now all she had on were her Christian Louboutin boots She ran her hands all over her body with the water Wanta get wet with me Hey, I ve already accepted that this series is ridiculously immature, yet it still somehow manages to be extremely sexually charged at the same time It took me a while to get to this point of acceptance, but if we re going to get this contradiction of writing styles, then I m gonna milk my money s worth in the bizarre pendulum of behavior department. EDIT This was actually OK For the record, I hate this series like I ve hated no other But I just want to know what happens next Why must I be so masochistic Ah, it s definitely a love hate kinda thing Love the plot Hate everything else.
