New Book: Hunted

I received a mail from the folks at Zeitghost Media with details of the new book Hunted, part 5 of the House of Night series by P.C. and Kristin Cast. I am always more than willing to give new vampire material a shout.

The series follows 16-year-old Zoey Redbird, who gets “Marked” by a vampyre tracker and begins to undergo the Change into an actual vampyre and is teen fiction. There is a sample of the book – chapter one in fact – which can be found here, and I have embedded an audio of chapter two below:

It also seems that trailers for books are all the rage these days – no bad thing either – and I have also embedded the trailer:

Hmm. You know, I see the covers for these books and they always look like they would be good but then I see that the character is 16 years old and it's a young adult book so I tend to shy away since I'm 28. : ) Reading that first chapter though, it seems like it's a 16 year old in an older woman's body. Of course, they do say that kids grow up faster nowdays. I think the writing is a little immature for my taste though. What are your thoughts?

Dracenea, I have read through the first chapter and (being a long, long way from 16!) it did seem too teen for my tastes...

Some teen books and some childrens books will cross over into adult sensibilities. This one perhaps did not but a single chapter is a little difficult to get a full picture, admitedly.

Probably not to my taste, however
