Synopsis: Dark secrets and unspoken suspicions come between Zoey and Stevie Rae, putting their friendship and the House of Night at risk. After Zoey Redbird and her gang have banished Kalona and Neferet from Tulsa, you'd think they'd catch a break. But with Zoey and her sexy warrior Stark both recovering from a brush with death, and the fledgelings struggling to deal with the fallout from Neferet's reign of terror, a break is just not in the forecast. Zoey is haunted by her confusing yet elemental connection with A-ya, the ancient Cherokee maiden who was the only human able to tempt Kalona's body and soul. How will A-ya's pull on her affect Zoey's ability to resist the dangerously seductive immortal? Meanwhile, Stevie Rae, with her super red-vamp powers, always thought she could handle the stuff she's been keeping from her BFF. But the mysterious, threatening force lurking in the tunnels under the Tulsa Depot is spreading. Stevie Rae won't confide where she's been and what she's doing, and Zoey is beginning to wonder just how much she can trust the person she always thought would have her back. Will their choices destroy them and will darkness consume the House of Night?

Raven Haired Book Worm's Review: Well, I am happy to write that I have FINALLY started back up with the House of Night series (I really don't like starting a series and not finishing it). It has taken me quite a while to come back. Thankfully, the public library had the next 3 books that I needed to read available. The House of Night series in the previous books were alright but I was somewhat losing interest; well Tempted brought me back. I am looking forward to reading the next (Burned) book to see what will happen with Zoey and Stevie Ray! In this book Stevie Ray has a shocking development with one of her relationships (I won't say because I don't want to spoil it for anyone). It did take a while for me to get to the point where I couldn't stop reading because I needed to know what was going to happen but this book did deliver that for me three-quarters of the way in (better late than never). In this book I Zoey really begins to start seeing the truth about her situation and in the end it ends up a harsh reality. I was not expecting this book to end the way it did, but I think it had to happen to really, really make Zoey make a choice and see the truth.
