Burned, the seventh book in the House of Night series, lived up to expectations.

I always have this impression that House of Night books should be combined (so instead of being on book seven, we’d be around book four now). The last book, Tempted (see review), wasn’t complete enough of a story for me. I wanted Burned to give me closure and move things forward, and the book did those things.

The authors switched POV much more in this novel, which turned out to be refreshing. There is more tension in Burned than with Tempted’s “hurry up and wait” vibe.
Burned keeps your attention, like most House of Night books, and makes you care about the characters. I’m definitely awaiting book 8.
