Forgotten (House of Night Other World, #3)
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 allIn 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!

"Joy isn't easy or inherent. It is a choice, and not always an easy one--not at first." As always, a copy of this book was provided by the publisher or author in exchange for my honest review. This does not effect my opinion in any way.P.C., Kristin, you have my whole heart! Dang. This was fantastic. Another knock-out that left me in a heap of heart-pounding emotion. Just when I think they could no longer surprise me, they do and I'm 100% under their spell. If you aren't reading the House of Night Other World series, yet, you are truly missing out--this is the most fun I've had all year. Forgotten was incredibly delectable and proof that these two only gets better with time. End review. (If only I could end my review with that and an emoji, I don't know, throwing a book at your feet.)It goes without saying that it takes a specific brand of super-author to continue writing books set within an established world/series and making sure that they feel familiar, yet brand new. House of Night is better than ever. Every page of it feels brand spanking new but nostalgic for us oldies. I've been with this series since high school and have, quite literally, grown up with these characters.Forgotten is proof of what I've said since reading and reviewing Loved: the House of Night Other World is the Cast's best series yet. In all its familiarity, there's this achingly intense feeling of newness that keeps us turning the pages. Tension, hope, romance, action and prophecies galore. Not a single moment is wasted. And from the very minute you open its pages, and lose yourself in a new world, you are devoted to only this book. Not only does it honor the original series, heart and soul, full of mythology and enthralling dramatics, it builds itself a new arch of mythology, fear, hope, love and more. Captivating as it is intense and, at its strongest points, unsettling (to think of what Other Neferet could do!), there is no doubt in my mind that Forgotten is one of the best installments yet. As Aphrodite would say, "The Nerd Herd rides again!"(Although, the narrative is split into various parts and our world has less page-time.) Picking up almost immediately in the past, Forgotten first explores the origins of the Other World's Kalona, Nyx and Erebus. Which is something I absolutely never knew I needed. Readers will see instantly how the relationship between two brothers, one full of joy and the other jealousy, varies from our world vs. this one. It all starts in such a familiar way--but the path that this version of characters walk is, in the end, drastically different.I loved noting all of the differences that came with this new exploration of brothers, because it absolutely changes EVERYTHING--which is the entire point of House of Night Other World: one choice can lead us down a separate path and change the entire landscape. With all of these changes, it sets up something unique for the upcoming novel, and definitely gives us a new tone to read by. As for the rest of the Other World, we pick up pretty quickly after the events of Lost. Other Kevin is still grappling with the loss of Other Aphrodite, and the characters work to conceal the fact that there is a mirror world from Other Neferet. Their next step? Protecting themselves from her allies that remain, and trying to prevent the now-disgraced High Priestess from obtaining immortality.They work diligently, too, to clean up the messes that Neferet left at the House of Night; attempting to mend relationships between vampyres and humans, as well as easing the growing tension amongst vampyres.Neferet, of course, works tirelessly on her path to immortality. She is a BOSS. An evil genius. An always wonderfully dynamic villainess that leaves us with a series of complexities. We are treated with a surprisingly different Neferet, as she seeks out answers to the mysterious arrival of "Ghost Zoey Redbird" in Lost, forms her own following, and sets on a quest for domination. As always, I loved seeing the different versions of familiar friends and foes (Kevin, Stark, Grandma, Anastasia, Dragon, Erin, Dallas, Shaunee, Neferet, Lynette and more) interact, work and spent a great deal of time comparing them to their counterparts from our world. Forgotten gives us new chapters in each of these variation and I really appreciate the development we get to see--I really, really loved knowing that we don't know everything about that world, because it is not our own.(I'M SORRY, I'M TRASH FOR AU WORLDS, OKAY? Blame Doctor Who.)Meanwhile, in our world, life must continue on after the traveling between worlds. Zoey, Stevie Rae and Rephaim learned, and went through a lot, in their time spent in the Other World. Now, they must get back to business as usual as well as deal with new threats that might arise.Changes are-a-coming. Zoey, in all her High Priestess glory, must work to strengthen the relationship between humans and vampyres. In doing so, she opens up new opportunities for her students (and in the process, one student stands out) and Tulsa in general. This, of course, is more complicated than one might expect. Can she work to fix things? Or is it too late?Aphrodite, too, has a new path to walk. Knowing that her Other World counterpart sacrificed her life, and lost it in the process, is weighing heavily on her. Mostly, she worries for Other Kevin and the loss he must be facing. Still, her duties as Prophetess never rest--and neither does she.Ultimately, the story of two worlds expands beautifully and leaves readers in a fit of questions. It is a whirlwind of action, mystery, intrigue and romance. One thing is certain: we will all be anticipating the next, and possibly final, installment to the House of Night Other World series. I can honestly say that this series is superior to the original and has left me breathless every step of the way.No matter the world it is set within, at its core, this series is all about connection. Connection to our family, friends and lovers. Connection to our world, and its elements. Forgotten doesn't forget this and benefits deeply from that.

    The entire series was an off shoot of House of Night set in the Other World.The story was about what would happen if Kalona had been given Eerbus's joy to fight against the darkness and if he had never fallen? In this book, Kalona made the biggest sacrifice asked by Mother Earth for Erebus, and the Other Neferet became darker and more evil than before. Other Kevin took charge and Other Zoey and Nerd Herd had to join forces fight her once and for all.Having read the House The entire series was an off shoot of House of Night set in the Other World.The story was about what would happen if Kalona had been given Eerbus's joy to fight against the darkness and if he had never fallen?

Cast and Kristin Cast, I was quite eager to read this off-shoot series. The winding road and plot twists were good. Neferet and her consort Lynette took the spotlight. Zoey and her team brought my nostalgia for this group back. It was fun to reconnect with them.Grief and its after effects were heavily touched upon. The theme of good VS evil was upheld in this book too. Writing at times brought out a dark claustrophobic atmosphere in the Neferet chapters and made her a good villain.My niggles too popped up. The broad themes of the series felt repetitive, and writing needed to be powerful to evoke intense emotions.Overall, a fun read, well recommended for diehard fans of this series.

    'Forgotten' is another enchanting installment in the young adult fantasy House of Night Other World series. I have read several books by these authors, including the original House of Night series, so I had a pretty good idea of what to expect when I started reading. I guess it had been too long since I last read one of the HoN books because I was blown away by all of the wonderful aspects the story contains. The world building is stunning and so intricate. One of the big reasons why I love thes 'Forgotten' is another enchanting installment in the young adult fantasy House of Night Other World series. I have read several books by these authors, including the original House of Night series, so I had a pretty good idea of what to expect when I started reading. I guess it had been too long since I last read one of the HoN books because I was blown away by all of the wonderful aspects the story contains. The world building is stunning and so intricate. One of the big reasons why I love these books is because there is so much care and detail used in creating the world(s) the characters inhabit. I loved the vivid imagery and descriptions used to bring these worlds to life before our eyes. At any time during the book, I felt like I could close my eyes and be transported to wherever the characters were at that moment. The authors have created a massive world throughout this series - with multiple time lines, periods of time and space, and now even multiple worlds. Instead of feeling overwhelmed, I felt like I was right inside the story with the characters experiencing everything along with them.Another major aspect of the book and the series is the wide array of characters. We meet and get to know so many main and major characters over the course of the series. Each one is unique with their own positive qualities and flaws - which makes each and every one of them realistic and easy to connect with. We're introduced to not only normal characters, but now "Other" characters that exist in a different world than the mainstream ones. It sounds confusing, but if you read the books you'll understand and it won't be an issue. I loved getting to know these other versions of characters and how they are both similar and different from the ones I got to know in the other books. Again, the amount of characters and all of their realistic traits and flaws is quite amazing if you take a step back and look at the bigger picture. Not many authors can pull off such a wide array of characters and an enormous world and timelines - but these ladies definitely did it. Quite spectacularly, in my opinion. That being said, I do have one small issue that is wholly personal on my part. It's the writing style the authors chose to use for the book. I almost always prefer the first person point of view when reading because I feel it allows for a deeper and more personal connection between the reader and the narrator. However, this book was written in the third person and that did have a bit of a negative impact on me personally. I completely understand why this writing style was used, but I'm stubborn when it comes to my POV preferences and this just fell a little short. Don't get me wrong - I loved the book and everything about it. I just personally feel like it would've been a lot better if it had been done in the first person instead of the third person. Again - this is a weird personal issue of mine that applies to every single book and not just this one, and most readers won't give it another thought.I don't want to go into the plot very much because I don't want to accidentally give anything away, but I do highly suggest reading at least the other two books in the House of Night Other World series before this one or you might get confused. I think it would be a much better experience if you were already familiar with the world, the characters, and the larger over-arcing plot. That being said, I'm so glad that there's still another book left in this series! I definitely don't want to say goodbye to Zoey and the Nerd Herd yet and I can't wait to see where the next book will take us. Definitely recommended for fans of the House of Night series, YA fiction, fantasy, and paranormal.Disclosure: I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

    Oh, where to start!? Though there’s a lot happening at once and split over two worlds, the plot never get confusing or so complicated you can’t follow it. Instead, the action just keeps going and it’s really hard to put down this amazing book from the Cast power duo.All of the characters in Forgotten are ‘picking up the pieces’ in one way or another, dealing with loss, war and grief. There’s a strong sense rebuilding throughout this book and it’s written beautifully. Through the vari Oh, where to start!? Though there’s a lot happening at once and split over two worlds, the plot never get confusing or so complicated you can’t follow it. Instead, the action just keeps going and it’s really hard to put down this amazing book from the Cast power duo.All of the characters in Forgotten are ‘picking up the pieces’ in one way or another, dealing with loss, war and grief. There’s a strong sense rebuilding throughout this book and it’s written beautifully. Through the various characters you can see all the different ways that people can be affected and how they cope with hard times. Even Nefret is coming to terms with a lot and her humanity (err, vampyrity?) really comes through on the pages, I have to say that she is possibly my favourite character. It would have been easy to have written Nefret is the classic evil supervillian style, but there’s a softness and emotion to her that actually has you feeling for her as you read and almost hoping she succeeds. Although she is a classic world domination style, power crazy lady, she is also strong and independent and it’s this side of her that I think appeals so much.The constant issues between humans and their acceptance of vampyres beautifully reflects the struggles that many people face in society. Not everyone finds it easy to be accepted, be that because of sexuality, race or religion, and many of these issues are brought up in Forgotten as both worlds fight for acceptance and equality.It’s difficult to write here about the plot as there are so many spoilers that don’t want to inflict on anyone reading this. I will say though that Forgotten is full of action and emotion and you will find yourself wondering where the time went. We have another 4am read, people!The book ends on a cliffhanger and I NEED to know what happens next! I simply can’t wait to find out if Zoey and the nerd herd manage to stop Nefret. I also want to know if [character name] can be saved or of they will die. I’m now counting down the days until I can get my hands on the last book in this series and that is always a sign that I’ve just read a brilliant book!Full review on www.bookbloglondon.co.uk Reviewed from an ARC

    I received an early copy for review.Okay, so as much as I wanted to give this a full on 5 star rating, I just could not deal with Other Neferet this entire book. It focused more so on her after the events of Lost. The writing was great, the character interactions were good, but I just found this book to highly more annoying then the others.Other Neferet is an evil, twisted and sad woman that hates all men and seeks loyalty from people she treats like dogs. I didn't care for her. Though I received an early copy for review.Okay, so as much as I wanted to give this a full on 5 star rating, I just could not deal with Other Neferet this entire book.

I didn't care for her. Though I feel bad for her past as Emily, she's just too evil and mean. She does things to only further her own goal of becoming a queen b*tch. I can't stand her, but she plays the villain role well.I was more excited to read the portions about Other Kevin, Zoey and the Nerd Herd. They just bought so much peace to the story for me. I wish Zoey and the Nerd Herd had more parts. They didn't show up until the second half of the story. I love Other Kevin. He so awesome just like Zoey. Of course Stark and both Aphrodites are awesome as well.I loved the story of Other Erebus and Other Kalona at the beginning. Probably my favorite part of the entire book honestly. I am excited to continue on with the series to see what happens next, but I'm just over Neferet and the White Bull. They both need to go.Definitely recommend the House of Night Other World series.Sidenote: let's talk about how GORGEOUS the cover is though. Stunning in every way. As much as I can't stand Neferet, I think she looks B O M B on this cover.

    Forgotten (House of Night Other World #3) by P.C. Cast & Kristin Cast is unforgettable. Forgotten begins with Kalona’s and Erebus’ story in the mirrored realm of Mother Earth.

It is creative and skillfully written. I like the changes that Zoe implemented in the school. The story had an intriguing ending that makes me look forward to the next book in the series. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader's copy of this book.

    Thank you Blackstone for the free arc via edelweiss. This spin-off has been interesting to see how things could have been different. That said, if zoey and the herd nerd did not make an appearance I would not have finished. I am tuning in because of them. It is like putting on an old familiar blanket. The book ended with things unresolved so I hope there is at least another to get closure. But after that, i would say stop.

    For my full review click here.//////////The third book in the series, Forgotten focuses a lot on Neferet and this rather random human named Lynette. I won’t tell you how important she is but let’s just say she has chapters in her own POV. So yeah. Super important.
