Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday recognizes that we as bookies pine for books. This post is about what I am impatiently waiting for right now. It was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

This week's selection is Tempted by P.C. and Kristin Cast. The 6th title in the House of Night series coming out on October 27, 2009. Be forewarned! As this is the 6th book in a series, major spoilers follow if you haven't read the rest of the series yet. Check here for my post on the series in general (without spoilers) and the first book Marked. You have been warned.

Tempted CoverZoey needs a break after some serious excitement. Sadly, the House of Night school for vampyres doesn't feature breaks on its curriculum - even for a High Priestess in training and her gang. Plus juggling three guys is no stress reliever, especially when one is a sexy Warrior so into protecting Zoey that he's sensing her emotions. Wider stresses lurk too, and the dark force in Tulsa's tunnels is spreading. Could Stevie Rae be responsible for more than a group of misfit fledglings? And Aphrodite's visions warn Zoey to stay away from the immortal Kalona and his dark allure - but they also show that only Zoey can stop him. She's not exactly keen to meet up, but if Zoey doesn't go to Kalona he'll exact a fiery vengeance on those closest to her. She just has to find the courage to do what's necessary, or everything that's important to her will be destroyed.

I have fallen in love with this series. While there is high school drama in large quantities, there is just something about this series that pulls me in a way that not many other teen paranormal series can mimic. The characters are very approachable and the story has many twists and turns in it. I also like that there is Native American and Wiccan parts brought in as well as vampire lore. A good series for those who enjoy drama, sexy vampires, and a whole lot of mischief!

I haven't read the series yet, which is why I skipped the synopsis of your post, but they sound incredible. I plan on picking them up very soon. Nice pick! :)
