P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast’ book Untamed is the last of 3 other books; Marked, Betrayed and Chosen. The main character; Zoey Redbird, is having a very hard time with her life right now, “she’s become an expert on suckiness.” All of her friends are pissed at her; she’s had 3 boyfriends in a week to none at all, and her very supportive, close group of friends who trusted her to being an outcast! Speaking of friends, two of Zoey’s friends that are actually talk to her, one is undead and the other is unmarked. Also there mortal enemy has declared war on them which Zoey knows is wrong. She tries to explain to everyone that they have to do something about it but no one listens to her. Zoey’s adventures at vampire finishing school take a crazy and dangerous turn as loyalties are tested and shocking intentions are revealed! This book was just amazing! There were surprises everywhere you read! For one, the vampire school slept in the day time and did everything at night! This book shows true bravery and real skill to help and protect others. It shows what real friendship is about. This book reminds me of teens. We make mistakes, take the concicounces and learn from our mistakes. It also reminds me of taking chances and risks. In this novel, Zoey makes a lot of mistakes and she has to face the punishment for them. In the end though, everything turns out just fine, everyone is happy and Zoey gets her life back! This book is amazing to read! You won’t want to miss a second of Zoey’s adventures!

I love this series there are so many possibilities that you could do with this series and that is why it is soooo big. I love the ideas of realism (the obstacles she has to face) mixed with fantasy and fiction.

“Zo, I'm not a damn pussy!'

Erik, looking very tall and full-grown, kick-your-butt vampyre-like, snorted sarcastically and then said, 'No, you're a damn human. Wait, that does make you a pussy!”

“I should have kissed more than your hand...thought I'd have more time," he whispered between liquid, panting breaths. "...too late now."
I looked into his eyes and completely forgot the rest of the world. In that moment, all I knew was that I was holding Stark in my arms, and I was going to lose him very, very soon.”

Several days after the events of Chosen, Zoey is hiding in the stables with her horse, Persephone. After an internal debate she finally decides to talk with her friends. On the way to the cafeteria she feels the presence of Darkness and is attacked by a strange creature. Her hand is injured and Zoey rushes inside the school. She tries to blend in and act normally, then attempts to explain that soothing attacked her outside, but her friends ignore her and the situation degenerates with the appearance of a newly re-Marked Aphrodite, who chooses to sit with the 'nerd herd'. A confrontation is postponed by the arrival of new fledgling and famous archer James Stark.
After lunch, Zoey meets Aphrodite and Stevie Rae in her room. She finds out that Stevie Rae is mostly normal now and the only difference she experiences is an intense aversion to sunlight (she is burned by it), and that Aphrodite's Mark is fake: she has mostly reverted to a human teenager, except for her visions. After Stevie Rae's departure the two are about to leave Zoey's room but meet Damien, the Twins, and Jack on the threshold. Aphrodite explains to them that Zoey confided in her because she was the only other one who could block her mind from adult vampyres and that her visions show Zoey dying alone because she was rejected by her friends. They make up with Zoey. After they leave, Aphrodite asks Zoey to cast a circle to see if she still has her Earth affinity. When the green candle "zaps" her, Aphrodite is convinced that the goddess has taken back her gift because she was disappointed in her. Zoey casts the circle and asks for guidance. Nyx appears to tell them that she still loves Aphrodite, that she was only safekeeping the Earth affinity for Stevie Rae, and that she reverted back to human because her own humanity was too strong.

Zoey isn't having the best of weeks. All her friends are mad at her. They felt betrayed by the fact that Zoey was keeping secrets from them. They just didn't understand she was trying to keep them safe. She didn't have a boyfriend anymore. Last week, she had 3! But Loren Blake, the adult Vampyre Poet Laureate, seduced Zoey into thinking he was in love with her. Neferet, the evil High Priestess, had set up Zoey. And when she was with Loren, the imprint she had with her human boyfriend, Heath, was broken. In addition, Erik Night, the gorgeous fledgling that had just made his transformation to adult Vamp, walked in on them. Heath isn't speaking to Zoey and now, neither is Erik. This was all before Loren was killed in a bizarre ritual that was causing Neferet to wage a war against the humans. So, yes. Zoey's life sucks alot right now.

In addition to all that stress, Zoey is also dealing with the Stevie Rae/Aphrodite issue. By casting her circle for Stevie Rae, she is no longer undead, but has transformed into some kind of other vampyre. Her mark is now colored in just like the adult vamps, but it is red. But with Stevie Rae gaining her humanity back, it caused Aphrodite to lose her mark. Now she is no longer a vampyre, although only Zoey and Stevie Rae know. But she is still having visions. And now her visions include Zoey's death and an all out war between the vampyres and the humans. And it looks like it is up to Zoey to stop it.
