Untamed (House of Night, #4)

Zoey's friends mean the world to her, and she is absolutely crushed when they turn their back on her for her mistakes he made with her boyfriend Eric and their poetry Professor Loren Blake. 

Which is absolutely devastating. Zoey admires her friends so much and appreciates how much they love each other. She thinks about it every time they cast a circle and show their true affinities for each element. 

Zoey can't begin to show her appreciation towards her amazing friends, it's so sad to see them turn their back on her. They complete her during circle casting, and she only feels truly complete when she is with her friends. 

It is especially upsetting when they assume they know the whole story, without giving Zoey a chance to explain the truth and/or her side of the story. 

All of this couldn't have happened at a worst time since Neferet has decided to declare war on the humans for the multiple deaths of Professors around the campus. 

There is one way to fix all her problems, but she must gain her friends trust again. Is their friendship strong enough to fight through this in order to stop the worst that could happen in the vampyre and human world. 

It seems like the last person she would ever expect to be on her side, happens to have her back more than anyone else has. Aphrodite. Just like any other high school, the cliques have changed and you won't believe who's on friends with who.

{Review + Giveaway} Mistaken by J.A. Howell

J.A. Howell

Genre: General/Mainstream Fiction/Suspense
ISBN: 1477456368  
Number of pages:198
Word Count: 61,448
Cover Artist: J.A. Howell

Book Description:
One year ago, two bullets from a .45 caliber pistol ripped away any hopes Dillan had of a future with her fiancé, Jamie. On the anniversary of Jamie’s death, the appearance of his estranged twin brother, Trey, leaves Dillan wondering what other secrets her prefect fiancé was hiding. When Trey learns of his brother’s death, Dillan takes pity on him and gives him a place to stay.

Trey’s erratic behavior and a series of suspicious phone calls lead Dillan to believe that Trey knows more about the circumstances surrounding Jamie’s death than he’s letting on. With all leads exhausted and Jamie’s murderer still on the loose, Trey is Dillan’s last hope for finding the truth.

Sometimes the truth hurts… but in Dillan’s case it could kill her.

My review:
The characters were easy to relate to, but the writing style was a little simple for me. The plot was great, and I enjoyed reading it, but it did take me a while to get used to the authors way of writing. Don't get me wrong, it was not a bad book whatsoever but the diaglogue between the characters could have been constructed a bit better. I would definitely put this in the young adult category. I still give this book a 4/5 for creativity and for getting me hooked into the book enough to finish it with a smile on my face. I look forward to more of Howell's books!
