Zoey Redbird is being HUNTED. Not only has Kalona been released, he’s partnered up with Neferet and together they are planning something terrible, if Aphrodite’s visions and a newcomer’s poetry is to be believed. But when a horrible accident forces Zoey and company straight back home to the House of Night they realize just how bad things are. The students and teachers have turned into ‘pod people’ and its up to Zoey to do something that seems impossible—send Kalona right back where he came from.

I’m not sure HUNTED was what I expected the fourth book in this great series to be.
Zoey’s powers are continuing to grow, as is the powerful circle she surrounds herself with, but as her powers are growing, so unfortunately are Neferet’s and Kalona’s, who has the ability to appear in Zoey’s dreams. What I really liked about HUNTED was the widening out of Zoey’s circle of friends as well as the return of Heath, one of my favorite characters. Something about Eric though kept me suspicious through most of the book and I still wonder if there isn’t something to come with him in future books. One of my favorite moments is who imprints with Stevie Ray. My only real issue was the ending, which seemed sort of abrupt and almost too easy for Zoey and company, compared to the endings of the others in the series. Still, I can’t wait to see what lays ahead for Zoey and her friends.
