Publisher Comments:

Thanks to its unique combination of human and vampire residents, Morganville, Texas, is a small college town with big-time problems. When student Claire Danvers gets the chance to experience life on the outside, she takes it. But Morganville isn’t the only town with vampire trouble... 

Claire never thought she’d leave Morganville, but when she gets accepted into the graduate program at MIT, she can’t pass up the opportunity. Saying good-bye to her friends is bittersweet, especially since things are still raw and unsettled between Claire and her boyfriend, Shane.

Her new life at MIT is scary and exciting, but Morganville is never really far from Claire’s mind. Enrolled in a special advanced study program with Professor Irene Anderson, a former Morganville native, Claire is able to work on her machine, which is designed to cancel the mental abilities of vampires.

But when she begins testing her machine on live subjects, things quickly spiral out of control, and Claire starts to wonder whether leaving Morganville was the last mistake she’ll ever make...

Hunted is the fifth book out in the House of Night series by P.C. & Kristin Cast. I like the House of Night series. It's a great new take on a vampire story with young characters that should really appeal to young adult readers. Books 1-4 of the series deal with Zoey being Marked by the goddess Nyx and finding herself at the house of night. Self discovery, adventure, betrayal and murder all take place before Zoey finds herself in a dire predicament at the beginning of the fifth book.

With friends turned enemy and enemy turned friend, who can Zoey really trust? Does she have the power within herself to banish the evil that has been tormenting the school? Can she protect her friends and those whom are innocent from the temptation that surrounds them? Hunted is a tale of of further self discovery, action, adventure and with three boys vying for her attention, romance.

Those are the great parts about the book. While I don't like to hover on the not as fantastic parts, I do feel a small obligation to state the parts that I personally didn't like. Remember, this is a personal opinion. I don't always like the books that others like and the same is true in reverse.

Hunted seemed in some ways to slow down the series and in some ways to speed it up. It did seem that we were able to see a more grown up side of Zoey, which I really liked. Our antagonist in the book (I won't name names so as not to create a spoiler) is a fantastic antagonist and very, very well written. The parts where it slowed down, however, were the tiny parts. The movement parts. The entire story of the fifth book takes place in a very short amount of time and while I like description of movement and transition between places, it seemed that this actually slowed down the book in some places. Now there's slowing down for pacing sake and then there's just plain slowing down. In general, this book felt slow. Right up until the end; and a fantastic end it was!!

Another part that I had a hard time getting through was the reoccurance of typos. Occasional Darius's and Damian's names were reversed. Keep this in mind while reading the story and hopefully you'll be able to realize it in time and reverse it. Let me tell you, there are some parts when switching the names creates for some very awkward moments! I don't think I would mind so much if it happened occasionally, but the name switching and other typos happened a few more times that occasionally.
