IT WOULD BE BEST TO READ THE FIRST THREE BOOKS IN THE SERIES BEFORE YOU READ UNTAMED. UNTAMED is the fourth book in the House of Night series. The story picks up just a few days after the ending of third book where Zoey Redbird is left isolated after disasters in her complicated love life and trouble with her friends because of her need to keep secrets from them. Everyone around her feels betrayed. Zoey’s only support comes from Aphrodite - the girl who started out as her worst enemy.Aphrodite has a vision that foretells death and destruction on earth. What makes this vision even worse is the fact that Zoey’s death is what starts it all. Together, Zoey and Aphrodite must put together a plan to prevent her death and hopefully save the world.New characters appear in this installment of the story in the forms of a new student, a powerful High Priestess, some nuns, and even a dog. The story is fast-paced and interesting. I didn’t want to put the book down. UNTAMED is much better than the last two books in the series and contains less boyfriend drama than CHOSEN, which is a good thing. You’ll need to read the other books in the series to know what is going on; as a stand alone book so much wouldn’t make sense. There is an issue with language. The “f” word is used several times so be aware. It would be nice if the authors could tone down the language in the future novels because the story is definitely going to continue and I can’t wait to see what is going to happen next.
