Destined

DestinedI want to shoot Heath in the face, I 3 STARK Oh my god is she really gonna bring heath into the mix gggrrrrr he s dead move on GO TEAM STARK Love thease booksKeep it up girls can t wait till Nov For the record, I hate this series like I ve hated no other But I just want to know what happens next And after finishing it, I m like Great Not another cliffhanger If only the authors had put thought into it from the start the books have become so overrun with narratives that I m wondering what is the point of the authors narrating Zoey in first person now Seems to me this is a massive case of we re making this up as we go along If this was an anime, then I suppose it could work in that contrived way that anime plots and Mary Sues gel together But no This is not an anime, a TV show or even godforbida movie It s a book, a terribly written one at that, and yet, I know I ll be reading the next one whilst cursing the writers for making an addictive plot and the most awful main characters in recent book history sigh DIE HEATH DIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIE ahem okay Kissa, okay You re getting closer to the end of the series Just this one and then 3 to go and Heath is coming back He s dead Heath The guy who I ve wanted to hit since book 1 Don t bring him back And I thought the books were finally starting to move forward You re going backwards Define House of Night see, Draco Malfoy s quotes if you were any slower, you d be going backwards. After people seemed to appreciate my Silence review ahem I felt like maybe writing a ranty summary ish not review for Destined might be in order Especially because of the entire Those books suck, but I still want to know what happens thing most of the not fans have going on What s happened till now Zoey became first fledgling High Priestess, very buddy buddy with Nyx Goddess of all vampires Stevie Ray, BBF of Zoey, is read vamp s High Priestess Red vamps haven t survived their transformtion, but came back With red instead of blue markings Can t walk in sun, are typical vampires, need to decide whether to be good or bad Zoey s relationships so far Heath, human guy Erik, now Tracker of the HoN Loren, partner in crime of Neferet evil bitch Kalona, fallen Warrior of Nyx, has been linked to Neferet, killed Heath Stark, died, came back as a red vamp, is now Zoey s Guardian and consort Zoey s mom s been killed by Neferet as a sacrifice, to create a weapon Nyx asked Heath if he wanted to be with Zoey again He wanted to, so now his soul lives in the weapon mentioned above Neferet aka evil bitch is sided with the White Bull, enemy of Nyx, and Evil in general.First 50 percent1 Stark has nightmares2 Zoey dreams of her mother s death.3 Both wake up, have sex Kind of only thing they do, anyway.4 Return to House of Night, problems with Neferet.5 Now live outside of the HoN, Stevie Ray is now officially the High Priestess of the good red fledglings.6 Raphaem, son of Kalona and ex Raven Mocker turned sort of human and boyfriend of Stevie Ray joins them, causes chaos.7 Neferet s job is to cause chaos, her weapon also lives from it, as does the White Bull.8 Because of that she offers humans jobs, eg some cowboy Horse lady isn t happy about that They later have some thing going on Horse lady is on Zoey s side.9 Dragon isn t Still mourning his mate s death Very unhappy about Raphaem who killed Anastacia the mate 10 Erik tracks and Marks girl She is blind, instantly turns to a red fledling cause broken already can see again and has the ability to see the true colors of people.11 Authors make True Blood references that don t work out Destined is set not long after the first novel, which has been published years ago So, actually Season 1 or 2 would be airing Dumb mistake Later happens again, this time with a Game of Thrones reference 12 The other, evil, red vamps attend classes now, too Neferet asked them Obviously to create chaos Last 50 Percent1 New poem Dragon tears, Dark Light, Ice Fire, paradox, blah Zoey doesn t know what a paradox is Find that very insulting Do Casts thing young adults are that dumb 2 Kalona and Raphaem talk Kalona tried to make Raphaem spy before, but he refused Everyone s unhappy about Raphaem not shunning his father, except Twin 1, who has Daddy Issues, too.3 Because of that Twin 1 and 2 have fall out, no BFFs or Twins any Twin 2 is bitch.4 Death lady from book before arrives at HoN She s a High Priestess too Kind of on Zoey s side, wants to know truth about Neferet, makes special students attend her class instead of Neferet s.5 There they talk about death of parents, Imprinting etc.6 Death Lady offers wants to make a ritual, to see how Zoey s mom died 7 Aurox, Neferet s weapon starts thinking, feels bond to Zoey Saves her, too, one time, when Neferet tries to harm her.8 Kalona talked to Twin 1, she gave him her iPhone, so he could call Raphaem.9 Aphrodite had a vision of Raphaem s death Does this mean I wasn t meant to find out and I shouldn t do anything at all Aphrodite shrugged Z, I know you ll find this hard to believe because you ve been Miss Front and Center ina bunch of my visions, but in this one you barely made an appearance I just don t think this is about you at all But it s at my Grandma s farm Yeah, but it s Raphaem getting carved up this time and not you, she said.10 Aurox weapon Heath is supposed to do everything so Zoey etc start finish the ritual.11 He doesn t want to anyway.12 Dragon shall not go to the ritual, because Aphrodite saw that he was there when Raphaem died.13 Both go, Dragon cause he wants to, Aurox cause Neferet forces him with magic.14 Aurox attacks Raphaem.15 Zoey and Co see how her mother died.16 Stevie Ray calls Kalona.17 Dragon protects Raphaem and dies, reunited with his mate.18 Kalona arrives, too late though.19 Kalona s very sad Cries, asks Nyx to keep his son alive.20 Tear drops on Raphaem s forehead, Raphaem heals.21 Everyone very happy 22 Kalona wants to be Sword Master of HoN under death lady High Priestess23 Everyone OMFG 24 Nyx very happy.The end Except that this series ll most likely never end. REVIEW DOWN BELOW Wow Okay Cool cover I mean, there are abs in it What could possibly go wrong with a hottie like that on the cover Ugh Despite my love for the cover I can already predict that this book is going to beyet another usless novel 1 Heath is coming back Oh Heath, you can be sweet sometimes, but my real feelings for you lie in my hands that want to slap you senseles YOU WILL GET NO REMORSE HEATH LUCK 2 Like I said up there, this is not going to be good The lack ofANYTHING in Awakened lessens my hopes for this book The author tried to cram little miniscule bits of info into a book that really, should ve never happened Or at least combined with Burned, to make one huge mistake 3 There are going to be three books after this Yes, just when I thought I couldn t get enough of Zoey s idiotic thoughts, her stupid actions, and her non existant IQ, I get another three books to burn Whoop De Doo But don t be fooled I will try and enjoy this book, for whatever its worth I will just a Not buy it at a bookstore for 19.99 when I can get it in the trash bin for free just joking b Try to keep my slapping hands away from Heath, and c I actually don t have anything for c SLAP Countdown the Destined Only 9 days Oh joy This is why I m going to guy the Iron Knight before I even touch this book It would be a disgrace NOT to Let me predict what is going to happen in this book 1 Another useless character dies If only it were this exciting 2 Zoey develops some incredible new power that enables her to bring back the dead Like it hadn t already happened five books ago 3 All of the characters hook up with someone, even if it really wasn t nessecary 4 This book will be a total waste of my time, yet again.And if there is the slight chance that this book won t make me want to do this Or this Then I might consider buying the next one I got the book And I ve just made probably the stupidest, or most obvious realization It isn t Stark on the cover It s Heath Three starsThree stars WHAT IS THISThere will be a lot to say about this So hold on tight But the first thing I have to say is that all at least, almost all of my predictions came true I will enlighten you all on that later But for now, my overview Again let me remind you that if I didn t have such strong mixed feelings for this series, I wouldn t be reading this book at all I went into reading this insult to literature with an open mind please remember that Anyway, onto the rantingDestinedwas a roller coaster ride of good and bad I was NOT thrilled in having Heath backeven though somehow, magically, he s a sexy beast Abs Yes please Oh, eh hem, sorry about that From the first chapter I already had the urge to smack this book against the wall, and then continue to beat my head against it just to get the last wisps of Zoey s demented lingo out of my mind I can t stand how she thinks No teenager in their right mind would ever talk like that I can t even explain it, its that bad So while we re still on the topic of Zoey, I d like to point out that she s still the same stuck up stupid biotch she was in the lastwhat was iteight books So don t get your hopes up for a change The only way I got through this boook is because of the split POV s, because I wasn t stuck in Zoey s small mind and didn t have to imagine words likesmushyand ridiculous sentances likeI blinked a bunch of timesstreaming from a should be mature teenage mind And that stupidAh Hellthat s like a quirky little catchphrase to you Not cool Throughout most of this book, I actually had to put it down for a while to be able to think properly Honestly, this book was a mess A Mess Obviously this book wasn t properly edited I mean, they barely come out a couple months behind each other What do they do Draft a book in a month and then get someone to fill it with incestant angsty teenage babble There were thousands of gramatical errors, spelling mistakes, and sentances thatjust didn t make senseThe only reason it got three stars is because again the split POV s made up for it That s all And when I say that s all, I mean that s all And also while I was reading this, I daydreamed I wondered what it would be like to have someone who almost tried to kill you in the past be all friendly and cuddly with you in the same room If it was me, I would just do this Whoops I also had weird fantasies when Kalona showed up and Shaunee was in the tunnels with him, about them hooking up No offense, but that would ve been totally awesome I might have even spared half a star if that happened P Also, I m glad that some of the other characters have love interests, and not just Zoey, who hogs all of the smexy boys for herself I thought Lebonia and whats his face were so cute together, and I also like Stevie Ray and Rephiam together, although it would be fantastic if one of them died, leaving the other tottally and impearably heartbroken and crushed But you know, thats just me Sigh And lets not forget how many times the ending of this book has been used before It goes kind of like this We have to make a circle Don t break the circle DON T BREAK THE EFFING CIRCLE B but someone ishurtI DON T CARE DON T BREAK THE GOSHDAMNED CIRCLE Let s count, shall we 1 In the first book Heath is getting attacked by pervert ghosts DON T BREAK THE CIRCLE 2 In the third book Stevie Ray is biting Aphrodite and could quite possibly kill her DON T BREAK THE CIRCLE 3 In the fourth book Stevie Ray just got SHOT WITH AN ARROW and is bleeding all over the place DON T BREAK THE CIRCLE 4 In the fifth book Stark just got SHOT WITH AN ARROW and is bleeding all over the place DON T BREAK THE CIRCLE 5 In the eight book Rephiam just got mauled by a bullDON T BREAK THE CIRCLE Do you SEE the pattern here I can already guess what the next book will be like No seriously, if I get another ending like this I willdo something I don t know what yet, but I will do something about it And while we re on the topic of lists, here s another one HOW MANY BOYS ZOEY HAS INTERACTED CAUGHT THE ATTENTION OF 1 Heath 2 Erik 3 Loren 4 Stark 5 Kalona I ve anazlyzed this list, and have come to the conclusion that Zoey is not entirely human She is, due to the excessive ammount of male attention she is getting, even though she has the IQ of a rock A ROBOT Yes, I am almost positive now Anyways, like I said before, almost ALL of my predictions came true I am actually shocked I didn t know I was that psychicand instead of ruining the book than I already have for those who haven t read it yet, I ll just do this 1 Another usless character dies Check 2 Zoey develops some incredible new power that enables her to bring back the dead Like it hadn t already happened five books ago Check Well, memories of the dead 3 All of the characters hook up with someone, even if it wasn t really nessecary Half Check I said ALMOST, not all of my predictions came true 4 This book will be a total waste of my time, yet again Check x10 Ahh, at least now I have a break until the next bookHIDDEN In Destined, The Forces Of Light And Dark Collide As Their Epic Struggle Focuses On Tulsa S House Of Night Zoey Is Home Where She Belongs, Safe With Her Guardian Warrior, Stark, By Her Side And Preparing To Face Off Against Neferet Kalona Has Released His Hold On Rephaim, And, Through Nyx S Gift Of A Human Form, He And Stevie Rae Are Finally Able To Be Together If Rephaim Can Truly Walk The Path Of The Goddess And Stay Free Of His Father S ShadowBut Is Zoey Really Safe Does She Truly Know Those Who Are Closest To Her And Will Love Win When It Is Tested By The Very Soul Of Darkness Addictions suck Especially when, as you re reading through it, your thought process is something like Oh dear lord why am I reading this why are they talking like ten year olds why is absolutely nothing happening in the plot and even worse why am I enjoying it I seem to think this way when reading every installment in this series, and Destined is no exception.Perhaps the most frustrating thing about this series is the dichotomy between the plot and the characters The Casts well, really, P.C does Kristin actually do any of the writing have developed a plot that has matured as the series went on the actions of the antagonists became much darker, and the conflicts became much grand in scale However, while the subject matter has matured, the characters have not This immaturity was okay at the beginning of the series when Zoey and the gang were mostly dealing with relatable teenage issues with a few vampire problems thrown into the mix This far into the series, however, all traces of normality are gone, and these characters are dealing with death and destruction at every turn It seems only logical that they would inevitably grow up in the process, but they re still spewing out dialogue that sounds completely idiotic, and their interactions with each other are far too contrived The heart to heart moments between Zoey and Stevie Rae were actually painful to read at times It s almost as if these authors were never actually teenagers because the way these two speak to each other is not natural or relatable at all Similar problems arise in this installment that have occurred throughout almost every single House of Night novel in the past Stereotypes are still at large and don t seem to be going away anytime soon Damien setting aside the fact that his character has been reduced to a crying mess is every single gay stereotype wrapped up into one person, and I still don t understand why the Casts feel the need to riddle Kramisha s dialogue with blatant grammatical errors just because she happens to be black The pop culture references are getting out of control, too Dropping the names of popular books and television shows and then awkwardly inserting a contrived conversation about it does not help the audience relate to what s going on it just makes everything extremely awkward I was cringing throughout the references to the Sookie Stackhouse series, Game of Thrones, and the others since they were made completely out of context, and they had no relevancy to anything at all.The plot s pacing was a little strange as well I just finished it thirty minutes ago, and I cannot remember what happened in the first two hundred pages These novels tend to fall into a pattern where the characters talk about what they re going to do for the first three quarters of the book before actually doing it, and this installment is no exception The climax, however, was possibly one of the most memorable of the entire series Even though, in my opinion, nothing truly happened in this book to move the overall plot forward, it was still nice to have some kind of gratification from the fairly well done ending If you ve made it this far into the series, you re obviously going to have to read this one and the ones after it I ve given up hope that I will ever stop reading these books because I m so far in, and as much as I hate to say it, I actually do find myself enjoying these books for the very trashy things they are Sigh. The House of Night series is the definition of a guilty pleasure something you shouldn t like but do anyway Let s face it the series has been going on for WAAAAAAAY too long It could ve and should ve stopped at four But it didn t And some of us, like me, are still here, hanging on and enjoying the ride For instance, it s obvious, and I mean really obvious, when the authors are inserting other people s works into their stories For example on page 63 of DestinedActually, they re the Sookie Stackhouse books by a cool human author named Charlaine HarrisI couldn t have caught it better had it been strapped to a bus and had it ran me over Also, the books are edited very poorly page 14 rolls around, and already Damien s name is spelled wrong Damian Pfft On page 91, it says Damien is a forth former I m pretty sure the editor is a monkey.One thing I notice about Destined is that, once again, the maturity level has been bumped down a notch When TEMPTED rolled around and the Twins and Damien backed away from the forefront, Zoey, Stark, Kalona and Neferet became the main peeps and the immaturity came to an all time low Now, though, those aforementioned backburner characters came back into play and it s all silly and fun.My head is still reeling after that amazing climax.After the addictive disaster that was Awakened, this book proved to be another solid entry in the House of Night series In this book, Damien and the Twins have returned to the forefront with Zoey after their much suffered break Due to this, the book reminds me of the earlier entries in the series, like Betrayed The book mostly reminds me of Tempted, though, because the beginning parts of the book were all setup to the explosive climax like they were in that book However, like they were in Tempted and Awakened, the events and the climax didn t seem contrived or rushed in fact, they seemed exactly the opposite Neferet is even bad bitch than she was in the last book She s using her freaky Darkness powers to inflict evil on the House of Night.OOoooOOOH, scary.I also like how this one is longer than AWAKENED was PC was slacking when she wrote AWAKENED Not this time around, babeh WooT Early 2011This whole page is lies It s not called RELEASED P.C confirmed that.Second, this isn t published by ATOM.And third, may fifth isn t even a valid release day.Sorry, people.Mid 2011 Cover RevealOHMAGAWSH It s gorgeous TOTALLY not what I was expecting I love the shadow of the bull and the lack of shirtlessness I mean, yeah, there are a few abdominals peaking out, but it s not nearly as graphic as AWAKENED My only complaint is the recent designers love of yellow and purple Are they the only colors usable Okay, I lied I also don t like the change in tattoo styles. whyyyyyyy why I know that Heath might look sweet and everything but COME ON Zoey already has Stark and they are bound together for life plus they are in love ok now its good to know that in this book not always what is dead stays dead but please Heath was already an issue when he was alive, then he was a problem when he died, clearly nobody wants him back, lmao thats not fair for Stark Since the first book Zoey has been having boys issues with her having than one boyfriend first Heath Erick Blake, then Erick Heath Stark, then Heath Stark, and finally when she is loyal to ONE boy, Heath has to come back to mess everything up, PLEASE NOOOOO
