Awakened by P.C & Kristin Cast (Quick Review)

Awakened (House of Night, #8) by P.C. and Kristin Cast

Release Date: January 4th, 2011

At the start of Awakened, the pulse-pounding eighth installment of the bestselling House of Night series, Zoey has returned, mostly whole, from the Otherworld to her rightful place as High Priestess at the House of Night. Her friends are just glad to have her back, but after losing her human consort, Heath, will Zoey—or her relationship with her super- hot Warrior, Stark—ever be the same? Stevie Rae is drawn even closer to Rephaim, the Raven Mocker with whom she shares a mysterious and powerful Imprint, but he is a dangerous secret that isolates her from her school, her red fledglings, and even her best friends. When the dark threat of Neferet—who is coming closer and closer to achieving her twisted goal of immortality—and Kalona returns, what will it take to keep the House of Night from being lost forever, and what will one desperate girl do to keep her heart from being irreparably broken?

My Review:
It's been a while since it came out and I refused to read it because it had been a while since i read Burned. I had no idea this book would be as good as it was. I've followed The House of Night series for a while now and because there are so many books it felt like the author was just dragging the story longer that it should, I stopped reading. The book was good, yeah. But the story is just being dragged. 
I've seen many points in which they should have been able to deaf 'Darkness' and they haven't. While it is a good read, very entertaining, I doubt I'll keep reading the series. I just got tired of Zoey and her whiny friends. At first the series was really good, that's why it got so many fans, and had really good points. But then I began to realize that it wasn't nearly as good anymore. Because, c'mon, who says bullpoopie? Or has such accentuated accent like Stevie Rae? Seriously? 
Besides, it has no action whatsoever. None. At least not until the end. And isn't this series about Zoey and her so many boyfriends? Stevie Rae totally stole the romance from Zoey with Rephaim. Her romance was the only thing that kept me reading the book. I wanted to find out what happened. Other than that, I didn't enjoy it.
