Untamed is the fourth book in the House Of Night series, based on the idea of a vampire finishing school. I wasn't a huge fan of the first book, but the second and third were better, but something about this book isn't quite so good. Untamed seesZoey trying to make up for her mistakes in Chosen, trying to win back her friends and boyfriend(s?) as well as attempting to stop the evil, and increasingly crazy,Nefert.

Where friendships are concerned Zoey seems to be growing a lot and the development between her and Aphrodite in particular is good and interesting. This book sees things quieten down slightly where the boys areconcerned, with Erik and Heath both furious and hurt. We're starting to see Nefert's big picture now too, and it's not a pleasant one. Luckily for Zoey, she's got the power to try and stop her. Or at least keep her friends safe until she finds a way to do so.

I like this series, and there is enough of a decent plot for me to keep wanting to read, but the language at times is very child friendly and verging on ridiculous (the word 'bullpoopy' appears several times and each time it's used I want to smack the speaker), yet sex is mentioned much more freely. Untamed has the introduction of several things clearly setting up for the rest of the series. There are a few new characters here, most of them a fairly welcome addition, if a little bit strange (like the nuns for instance. Yes I'm serious). Most of the characters are still a little flat and shallow, but there is just enough for you to care about them. Not my favourite in the series so far, but it has some good moments.

I think my problem is the pace of the series. This book covers just a couple of days and is set exactly after the end of the pervious books.

This just gets better and better...if you are one of those people who, like me, struggled to find a good follow up to stephenie meyers brilliant saga, then this is certainly going to help you break free of twighlight's grip! Obviusly i will not give too much info on the storie itself as i know it would only ruin the whole experience, but i will say this, zoey redbird will find out that, no matter how bad thing's get, they can always get worse...but she will also find she is a lot stronger than she thinks and that true friends will always have her back;)

Don't miss it...because this is only still book four...there's a lot more to come ..!!!

Format: Paperback
Zoey Redbird just can't seem to get it right.

After losing three potential boyfriends, alienating her closest vampyre buddies, and incurring the wrath of her mentor, Neferet, Zoey is on a downward spiral to Loserville. This young high priestess-in-training has a lot on her plate since transferring to the House of Night. Her abilities are creating quite a stir on campus and Zoey is not used to having all the attention on her.

Since her recent admittance into the vampyre school, things have changed, and not for the better.

Professors are being murdered, fledglings are disappearing, and Neferet has declared war on all humans. Stevie Rae, Zoey's best friend, has been transformed into another type of vampyre, and Aphrodite, Zoey's one-time nemesis, has regained her humanity, but continues to have life-altering visions. Zoey must use all of her abilities to unite those who wish to save the House of Night and its loyal inhabitants.

The Cast duo has created yet another excellent addition to the HOUSE OF NIGHT series. It is easy to see why these novels have become so popular; the stories are well-written, and the dialogue is at times extremely clever and sometimes biting. Young adult readers can relate to the mundane, everyday-ness of Zoey's activities (i.e.going to class, having arguments with friends, etc.), while losing themselves in the otherworldly aspects of the students' lives.

This is a definite must-read for fans of the House of Night!

untamed is another fast paced read which was better written than the previous in the series.
The story begins to develop in this book as it moves off from Zoey's personal life to actually having a purpose.
Aphrodite's character becomes more in depth likewise with the rest of them. The voice of Zoey is more mature and it is a much preferred read.
With a few humorous lines in the story to lighten it up this is probably the best so far in the House of Night series. The only annoyance is that things are repeated constantly, such as description of her grandmas use of cherokee words and the twins likeness. This book is a series and is bound to be read in order the need to repeat everything is unnecessary and i did skim read in total of about ten pages of what i didnt need to know.

After all of the excitement of the previous 3 books I was a little disappointed with this one, I was just expecting a bit more.

This book picks up right where the last one left off, and it goes straight into the story, which is great, only a little recapping on who the characters are. However this time round there is a lot of explaining to do after the fall out of the previous book, not only why certain characters behaved but also who/what the big evil is that is going to be resurrected. This last part is great as I feel it's a solid foundation to build the story up from.

But to be quite honest I feel let down by this book for a few reasons, and hence the reason it's down to 3 stars:
1 - the big evil was slightly ant-climatic and with a name like Raven Mockers, I couldn't take them seriously, I just imagined birds telling each other jokes.

2 - some of the phrases in this book were a little too immature, for a book that is tackling some more mature issues about love and relationships and quite happily uses swear words to suddenly use the words "bull poopy" was a little off putting. I felt like I was reading a kids book not a young adult book.

3 - the characters of Damien and Jack just seemed far too stereotypical and I would have like to have seen more emotion from these two rather than being the token gay couple. I just didn't feel the love.

Having said that I am hoping the 5th book to come back with a bang and I hope they can defeat the big evil. I'm also looking forward to hearing more from Zoey and Aphrodite as I can see them making a great team, as they are really putting aside their differences and trying to make things right.
