The book Revealed is book number 11 in the House Of Night series. These books are for young adults and I started reading the series when I was 18. I figure since there’s only 1 more book after this one I might as finish out the series and see how it all ends. The basic gist of the series is good vampires and other creatures (representing Light) and evil vampires and other creatures (representing Darkness) are fighting each other for power.
I wasn’t looking forward to reading this book in the series. Book number 10, Hidden, was incredibly boring and everyone basically sat around whining about boy problems instead of figuring out how to save the world and Zoey, the leading good vampire, from the main villain, evil vampire, Neferet. No action or anything of importance happened in that book until the last 4 chapters. It took me forever to read because I kept stopping when things got annoying.
Revealed was actually a pretty good book. Plenty of things happened that didn’t revolve around Zoey’s boy problems. There were also interesting chapters involving backstory for the more interesting characters in the books, Neferet and Kalona. Everyone in the book finally started getting things done. All of the problems are finally being dealt with in a mature way. Until we get to almost all of the chapters involving Zoey’s character. Zoey is supposed to be the character we root for. She’s the vampire that the vampire goddess Nyx has blessed with a bunch of awesome powers…yet all she wants to do is whine about her boy problems. Zoey is supposed to be saving the world. You think the mighty all knowing Nyx would have chosen a better new vampire to give a bunch of random powers to.
I’m giving this book 3 stars because the action is great. The backstories provide good chapters that keep things interesting and help to understand motivations of the characters. Also, things are finally happening and getting accomplished. However, there are still 1 to many Zoey chapters and if she would just shut up about her boy problems and focus on saving the world I might start to like her more.
