    "Is anyone sick of vampire stuff yet? Looking at it, I guess I am the only one. Look, the writing is fine, you get the usual forbidden romance that has been beaten into us over and over.. So if you aren't fatigued on any of these, get it. You'll love it. Otherwise, run!"

    "Chosen (House of Night), is one of the best books I have read in awhile. It's a vampire story, which doesn't usually intrigue me, but this one just does. It's full of mystery and suspense. There are enemies and allies; a perfect combo. Zoey finds herself with not 1 but 3 boyfriends! Lucky her. It was a fun book and I really enjoyed it."

    "If you're a fan of this genre, you'll probably be a fan of this book. Paranormal romance is a pretty easy genre to get hooked on, and this book was no exception. The plot was a little bit predictable and some of the romance was a bit cheesy but it's not any better or worse than other stuff I've read. The series itself is worth giving it a shot. "
