Summary Loved By P.C. Cast é PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Lls them back to Tulsa to surprise Z But all is not well in T town Strange dark signs are appearing could it be possible Neferet is stirring Not willing to chance disaster striking again Zoey calls on her newly reunited friends to circle with her and add a layer of protection over Neferet’s grotto jail Easy peasy rightWrong Noth. P12 Massive spoilers ahead Three years after mother daughter team completed their magnum opus The House of Night series Redeemed PC returns to the wonderful world of Vampyres and Magic in the newest seuel and start to a completely new story Loved Join Zoey Mary Sue Redbird and her Nerd Herd once again as they tackle the forces of Darkness unravel deeper mysteries and ultimately set the stage for the Other World arc What can be said about this particular entry that hasn t already been said about nearly every book in the series already The writing which had always been subpar at best trash at worst somehow takes several steps backwards in terms of uality This isn t figurative in the sense that the uality of the story and characters are lacking they are but the actual writing itself has gone downhill Story and character uality aside the book is absolutely riddled with spelling errors format errors and even simply inaccurate statements In the first third of the book alone Aphrodite s mother who had previously been relegated to a handful of unimportant scenes is finally named but inconsistently switches between Francis and Frances Even prior to this established Red Vampyre Kramisha is mistakenly labeled as a Blue Vampyre in the early chapters of the book On this particular error I reached out to PC and she informed me that this was a First Edition error and has since been corrected That s all well and good but the characters within a story are the most important aspects to the story Without them why are we even reading this story I would never be so arrogant as to insist on perfection from my favorite authors indeed as a writer myself I am prone to making errors But I can say with certainty that I nor any mainstream or established author would make such a mistake in characterization You never read about a brunette Weasley in the Harry Potter universe an Ender without a tortured soul in the Ender s Game books or an overly feminine girlie girl Lisbeth Salander in the Millennium books I cannot emphasize this point enough Errors in writing are okay in moderation Errors in characterization are not And as for that other error The FrancesFrancis thing PC you have editors it s their damn job to catch such obvious mistakes If a character were misnamed Stephen Rae or Erica Night you know the fan backlash would have been extraordinaryTo expand upon the ever diminishing uality of the writing things such as the unnecessary and obnoxious teenager isms make their triumphant return Pop culture references are back in all their glory never mind the fact that every entry in the series is written to be taking place during the time of the books publication which creates its own mess of inconsistencies inadvertently screwing up the timeline of the books and horribly dating it for anyone who may want to read these books even a few years from now And my personal favorite read most hated feature the parenthetical asides You cannot go than a paragraph or two before Zoey or some other PoV character feels like the need to add shit that no one was asking Zoey who the hell cares what the lettering on your black jacket says Who cares if you love you some whateverwhoever the hell you named drop this particular instance seriously I can t even be bothered to go back and check because this happens so so often in this series Why do we even need this absolutely unnecessary fluff FLUFF Hell just writing my own personal asides within this paragraph to both parody and emphasize the issue was incredibly obnoxious for me now imagine that every few paragraphs nonstopOne issue I ve always taken with the characters in the House of Night series is that they re so over the top in their teenagerness How many times did I read someone calling someone else cray How often does Zoey Mary Sue Redbird say aloud OMG But both of those problems pale in comparison to the sheer vulgarity of these characters These kids curse than the worst case of any inner city school kids you could ever imagine Don t get me wrong here There s nothing wrong with cursing I curse You curse and you re fucking lying if you try to pretend otherwise But it is nonstop within this story no within this series Even Damien the ever lovable token gay of the group has such an absurd out of character piece of dialogue that I put the book down and jotted in my notes how ridiculous this line was coming from anyone let alone the mostly civil Damien It s so out of character and jarring that it pulled me from the story but sad to say that s just the norm for this story Readers can and will be pulled out of the story several timesAnother characterization issue that was particularly jarring was Shaylin s line in context she s joining in her friends mock teasing of Erik of I shall nevah eat pussy again Look there s nothing wrong with sexuality in literature Hell there s nothing wrong with sexuality period People can discuss sexuality and everyone jokes about it But it needs to make sense in context it needs to come from the correct characters Shaylin Ruede is not that character Shaylin was introduced into the House of Night story pretty late in the game in book 9 of 12 Destined She received very little screen time there but in the books that followed she was elaborated upon Interestingly enough Shaylin was always portrayed as a fairly reserved if sometimes blunt and outspoken person She didn t curse in excess and her frankly shoehorned in lesbian sexuality is only ever lightly touched upon when she begins a relationship with fellow Red Nicole this entire relationship deserves its own critiue for how poorly it is written and implemented She went from this relatable even likeable character within this universe of unlikable characters to someone crass and vulgar Like with the Damien example before it s so out of character that it tears the reader from the story It was this particular scene that had be beginning to believe that there s a very large disconnect between what the authors think their target audience is like and what their target audience is actually like Even in a group situation even amongst friends you d be hard pressed to find your average teenage girl casually talking about whether or not she ll eat pussy again even in jestFinally in what is probably the worst offender of character bastardization is Aprhodite ueen Bitch LaFont Not much of her established character is really changed that much here but her reprehensible ualities are turned up to eleven We the readers are supposed to understand that she s a young woman who struggles with the fact that her parents were terrible pieces of shit who never really loved her I get that I can wrap my mind around that and even understand it on a personal level I relate What I cannot relate to and I m sure many others cannot as well is the sheer indifference and dare I even say cruel indifference she views her mother with Yes there is a line thrown in there about her mother poking the cracks in Aphrodite s fa ade and nearly making her cry but it feels so inorganic and disingenuous that it comes off as trite Moving on perhaps the greatest offense to her characterization is her ultimate fate near the end of the story From book two in the series up until the very last a major arc in Aphrodite s character was learning to see past her bigoted even racist view of humans and accept that she is perhaps the most human of everyone else She even gives up her Mark and status as a fledglingvampire in order to restore the humanity of the feral red fledglings She must learn to come to grips with the fact that while she is still a Prophetess she is no longer vampire kind but human And she does For as obnoxious as her character has always been she learned and grew throughout the story in a very natural organic and believable way Aphrodite was one of the best written characters in this story And how does PC pay off that wonderful development By turning Aphrodite into a vampire that is neither Red nor Blue hereby classified as a Purple Vampyre in order to serve as a bridge between the two denominations Aphrodite the most extraordinary human got her Vampyre status back just because she learned to stop pining over her horrible mother I can t even express how absurd this is And to top it off we learn that she ll lose these new found Vampyre powers and status over time as she uses her powers to help others But why That was my single greatest lingering uestion after reading this book WhyI haven t touched upon Zoey s character as well as a new character introduced or reintroduced in this book but that will be explained shortly Zoey as always is a damn near superfluous character That is all that needs to be said at this junctureLoved begins with Zoey dreaming once again that she is in Capri by this point I d be surprised if she dreamed of any other place watching Someone Nobody and Who Cares play a game of Does it Even Matter Kalona Redeemed Immortal and Warrior of the Goddess Nyx visits her in her dream to warn Zoey of a disturbance in the force so to speak and advises her to read Neferet s journal conveniently hidden beneath her floorboards Why Neferet ever dug it up from her original resting place and replaced it within what was originally her bedchambers doesn t even make sense in context And ultimately what they learn from the journal is of absolutely no importance to the story Yes it helps to connect back with the previous arc of this series and at the end of the book it does give Zoey a bit of characterization that I desperately thought she needed and expected her to get at the end of Redeemed I can say insofar as Neferet s journal is concerned I m glad it at least gave that final bit of closureAphrodite s mother Frances takes center stage as this story s secondary antagonist Her goal is to become the new mayor after her husband s untimely demise at the hands of Neferet the year before By becoming so she hopes to oust Tulsa of the Vampyre influence though as pointed out by her own daughter her knowledge on the subject is flawed and lacking Interestingly PC makes a point to inject her own political fears into France s political platform Her stance to Make Tulsa Great Again should ring familiar to anyone reading this book in the year 2017 perhaps even in 2018 or 19 Frances is so obviously meant to be the Donald Trump of this universe and while there s nothing inherently wrong with commentating on the political climate on your platform the way Frances and her agenda is portrayed is so absurd and in your face that it can t help but feel cringe worthy and obnoxious Someone reading this particular part of the story can t help but wonder if PC meant for Frances rabble rousing to be a form of satire or parody Sad to say this simply isn t the case Frances LaFont is the Donald Trump of the House of Night UniverseZoey Stark Aphrodite and Darius next visit Neferet s grotto to check things out as they fear Neferet may be stirring It turns out she is not but somehow a nearby flower shop s roses have begun to turn black and ominous looking Of course Aphrodite has a vision here and sees a new foe emerge and destroy Tulsa among their numbers is an undead Jack In the vision Aphrodite as who she believes to be Damien is killed by Jack who died during the events of Awakened after breaking a Circle Aphrodite warns the group and they return to the House of Night to convene with the rest of their High Council Stevie Rae Shaunee Damien and co A uick aside here Why Zoey and co are the leaders of the new High Council of the United States makes absolutely no sense to you or to me It is ridiculous both in context and out Just chalk it up to yet another instance of Zoey Mary Sue Redbird being ridiculously fucking special PC try to justify this in universe all you want It will never make even a modicum of sense to readers over the age of sixteenZoey and co finally reunite and catch up During this expositional dump we learn that Rephaim who is my personal favorite character in this series He was one of the few examples of great character development in a series otherwise barren of it communes with his father in the spirit world during his nightly outings as a bird when his human consciousness is asleep He offhandedly reveals that Zoey s dream with Kalona doesn t make much sense and Kalona makes a point never to revisit times or places that he once trafficked with Darkness in which means the Kalona in her dream could not really be Kalona This is played off as a who is lying Kalona Nyx or Aphrodite moment but it doesn t fool anyoneThe group decides that they will strengthen the protection on Neferet s grotto in order to ensure she remains trapped After yet another expositional dump they convene at the grotto and begin casting their circle Of course this is a House of Night novel so nothing can ever go according to plan and appropriately Frances LaFont appears and disrupts the ritual Zoey being Zoey thinks some not so nice thoughts about the hag and as a result the monsters from Aphrodite s vision emerge from the ground and begin to attack among them Jack who is also a red fledglingThis marks the second time rogue red fledglings this time treated like classic zombies become a threat to Tulsa Andit s utterly unremarkable We re given two very short PoV chapters from two characters who make a single appearance apiece and then are both killed Once again their inclusion was utterly superfluous We also learn that Kevin Heffer is a commander or general or whatever What this means isn t immediately apparent And who is Kevin Heffer you ask I m sure most people reading this book would be scratching their heads at the name Avid readers will recall Heffer as being the last name of Zoey s so called Step Loser John But who is Kevin Turns out that he is Zoey s younger brother a character so vitally important to both the plot and Zoey that he is mentioned a grand total of two times in the previous twelve books if that To be completely honest I couldn t even be bothered to go back and confirm these appearances because it is just so contrived and a blatant ass pull Anyway Red Jack is captured by Team Zoey and taken back to the House of Night while the rest of the Rogue Reds scatter and flee Something something Frances gets bitten and has three days to live something something Seriously these Reds are just so inconseuential In the end most of them are either killed by the Sons of Erebus regain their humanity due to Aphrodite s previously mentioned new powers and join the House of Night or commit suicide out of guilt I honestly couldn t care less about these characters and will you They re just fluffBack on the subject of Aphrodite s mother She is indeed bitten and infected and when it comes to these Otherworld no not THAT Otherworld but an alternate House of Night world Reds people bitten by them are infected and die within three days rise again in another three as zombies and then die again for good within a week Who cares I don t You certainly don t Frances is basically given a death sentence and I guess you re supposed to feel bad for her But it s really hard to give a damn at all when she s such a flat one dimensional facsimile of Donald Trump No that s actually took kind an analogy here Frances LaFont is a fucking cunt has no redeeming ualities and if you re anything like me if you re not rooting for her to just kick off already you just don t care about any of this Aphrodite visits her in hospital as good daughters do they fight Aphrodite gets drunk and stoned she and Zoey fight Aphrodite storms off cries to Nyx finally gives up on her mother whom no one who has read these books would even believe she still gave a damn about in the first place and Nyx gives her new powers makes her a Purple Vampyre and blah blah blah I ve already been over thisMeanwhile Red Jack known as Other Jack is actually a nice return of a previously well written character He s similar enough to his original persona but just different enough that he stands on his own and the execution is written well I can t help but feel happy for Damien and Jack What about Damien s previous boyfriend Adam Oh they broke up off screen before the story started Damien couldn t move past Jack just clich d shit He s presented as a tragic monster torn between wanting to become good and stay in this new world and becoming a monster like the rest of the Other Reds In theory this is a tried and true inner struggle but we ve seen it before with Stevie Rae Stark and Dallas I guess so this just comes off as of the same but not uite as poignant as previous iterations What can I say It s just been done to death and even though I like Jack Other Jack or otherwise it doesn t add anything to his character that wasn t already there but it doesn t take away from him either so it s inoffensive at worst As you would expect he regains his humanity again thanks to Aphrodite s Purple Powers and chooses to stay with Damien in this House of NightShortly after Kevin Heffer and his gang those who aren t taken hostage killed or committed suicide come to the House of Night to ask for help It turns out that in their world Neferet is in open war with the world Zoey is dead Stevie Rae is dead and a handful of things established in this world didn t happen the same way in that world It is at this point that Zoey and co learn that Kevin is his world s version of Zoey chosen by Nyx to combat Neferet and her Darkness And it is at this point that I must break from the summary and discuss a few thingsI immediately took issue with Zoey s non existent brother coming into this world from the Otherworld as a Red Vampyre It simply does not make sense in context at all Somehow we the readers are supposed to believe that in a completely alternate world where Zoey isn t the chosen one or whatever that her brother is In the whole wide world of Vampyres it s Zoey s brother who takes up that mantle The introduction to a separate House of Night world opens the door to discussions about multiple universes and all the complications that come with it and we re supposed to believe that out of any of the infinite worlds they could have connected with they just happened to open a gateway to the world where Zoey s brother is that world s Mary Sue Why not Stevie Rae Why not John Heffer Hell why not Heath If we re suspending our disbelief enough to believe that this world is different enough that certain people have changed roles some Vampyres are no longer Vamps and some humans are no longer human why not make that world s Zoey a compelling character one that we the audience who have followed twelve books worth of characters are inclined to connect with and care about Who went into Loved caring about Zoey s no name brother Or is that somehow supposed to be the appeal The only way this makes sense at all is if Zoey is the Chosen One across all universes within the House of Night multiverse If that s the case fine I can accept that But that would mean that Kevin admittedly not a terribly written character a farcry better than his older sister is and always was destined to be her backup in case she failed or fell or turned to Darkness or anything else that would render Zoey unable to stop Neferet And that would have been an interesting and compelling narrative to explore How often do we get to see the main heroheroine fail in their uest Stepbro years after mother daughter team completed their magnum opus The House of Night series Redeemed PC returns to the wonderful world of Vampyres and Magic in the newest seuel and start to a completely new story Loved Join
