Hi guys! Happy Monday! Today I’m excited to share with you Forgotten by PC Cast and Kristin Cast! This is part of a spinoff series from The House Of Night Series. Be sure to keep reading for my thoughts on it and a fabulous giveaway.
Title: Forgotten (House of Night Other World #3)
Author: P.C. Cast & Kristin Cast
Publisher: Blackstone Publishing
Release Date: October 29th 2019
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy
Synopsis: Before he was freed by Neferet, Kalona was imprisoned within the earth for centuries because of the Darkness in his heart. But what happened to the Other World’s Kalona? It’s as though he’s been forgotten, or maybe he never existed at all …
In the present, Other Neferet may have left her House of Night, but she has far from given up her goal of immortality and world domination. As she operates in secret to gain access to Old Magick, the new High Priestess, Anastasia Langford, works toward peace and acceptance for the vampyres of the Other World. But just as Other Kevin’s broken heart will take time to heal, peace in that world will also take time and work—and not all of the Other World vampyres want peace. After all, why should they return to being shunned by humans, especially when they’ve had a taste of how it feels to be in power?
Meanwhile, Zoey is desperate to help rid the Other World of Neferet once and for all, and not knowing what’s going on over there is eating away at her. But, as the Nerd Herd warns, it’s far too dangerous to call on Old Magick time and again. As a distraction, she throws herself into her work and attempts to bring the humans and vampyres of Tulsa closer together with the first human-vampyre swim meet in history! It’s too bad that something always seems to go wrong whenever the stakes are high.
What happens when worlds clash and powers that should be left alone are awakened? Can Other Kevin and his world heal from the wounds Neferet continues to inflict? Can Old Magick ever truly be harnessed and used for good? Or will Darkness extinguish Light and leave our heroes broken, hopeless, and as forgotten as Kalona of the Silver Wings? Don’t miss this second to last volume in the House of Night Other World saga!
Forgotten is book number 3 in the House of Night Otherworld series and tells the story of what if…? It focuses heavily on the effects the choices we make have and grief and loss.
I remember reading the HoN series when I was in high school and loving it! I was so excited to dive back into the world with Zoey Redbird and the Nerd Herd. Although I was a bit sad as they did not make an appearance until halfway through the story. It was however, so fun to read about Other Earth and all the Other characters. If you have read the previous HoN series, you will get to see the return of some beloved characters in the Other Earth as well as getting to see other sides of some previously well-known characters. Neferet is a huge part of this book and she is a character that you will feel a strong hate/love for. Yes I know she is totally evil and wants world domination etc but dang she is one independent lady and knows how to get stuff done. You can’t help but admire her😂
I love PC and Kristins world-building! It is absolutely effortless to get lost in these books. The descriptions are delightfully vivid and the characters are fully developed and easy to get attached to. You probably can read this book without reading the House of Night series or the HoN Otherworld books, but I would highly suggest reading at least the other 2 in this series to get a better understanding of all the characters and worlds.
Forgotten is recommended for fans of dark paranormal reads. parallel worlds, vampires, and the battle between good vs evil. I am giving this 4 out of 5 stars and eagerly awaiting the final installment in this series!
