Series: House Of Night (Book 6)
Synopsis: Zoey 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.
Review: When Aphrodite has another double vision, Zoey must stand up and decide what to do for the best. Can she resist Kalona's allure enough to destroy him? It's time for her to make some tough decisions...
I found Tempted to almost be a replica of the past two books, same exact storyline with nothing really solved. I think that if they stopped focusing on all the boy drama, which is pretty boring by now anyway, and focused on advancing the storyline a bit more, it would be much better. However, I did really enjoy the fact Stevie Rae played a much larger role in this book, she's one of my favourite characters, so it was good to read. Instead of being just Zoey narrating through the whole book like previous ones, in this book it flicks back and forth between Zoey and Stevie Rae and it worked really well, I also thought the direction they're taking Stevie Rae's storyline is a very interesting one, and for that I'll probably keep reading the series. I'm pretty bored of Zoey now though, and I think they need to bring something different to her storyline, which I'm hoping they'll do after the cliffhanger ending.
