I guess it had gone okay with Stevie Rae. I mean, she had agreed to meet me tomorrow. And she hadn’t tried to bite me, which was a plus. Of course, the whole trying-to-eat-the-street-person thing was highly disturbing…
Zoey’s best friend, Stevie Rae, is undead - in a eww! Zombie! Kind of way, not in a cool vampyre kind of way. She’s struggling to retain her humanity and Zoey doesn’t have a clue how to help. But she does know that anything they discover must be kept a secret.
Unfortunately, trust has become a rare commodity. Sinister forces are at work at the House of Night, where the line between friend and enemy is becoming dangerously blurred.
I didn’t like Chosen nearly as much as I did the first two in the series.
Zoey thoroughly annoyed me. I found her whiney and irritating and she was never satisfied with just how decent her life really is. I know she lost her best friend but she has amazing powers, a devoted boyfriend, great friends and a fantastic grandma. I also really disliked that she had Heath, Erik and Loren all on the go at once. Talk about greedy! It really got on my nerves, but, rant over now. I did actually like a few things about Chosen.
The twins, Shaunee and Erin, were by far my favourite characters. I love how they are like two halves of the same person even though they are not related in the slightest. Their finishing of each other’s sentences and witty comments along with their obsession with fashion and guys made them brilliantly funny characters to read about. I think they’re great!
I also liked how lots of different famous figures were made out to be vampyres. According to P.C. and Kristin Cast, Shakespeare, Josh Hartnett and Jake Gyllenhaal are all vamps. Making these famous people a part of Zoey’s world made the story a bit more realistic.
I will read the read of the House of Night series but I’m not in any rush to get to them.
