Hidden (House of Night Series #10)

Hidden - Kristin Cast, P.C. Cast This is for those of you who have made mistakes, and who are brave enough to correct them, and wise enough to learn from them.2.5 stars. Believe it or not, that was the dedication at the front of the book. I think the Casts could probably turn their dedication back around on themselves, seeing as how they've taken the fan complaints to heart and reigned in some of the most blatant issues with House of Night.Yes, I know. I'm still reading this trainwreck of a series. Hard to believe, isn't it? Sadly, this is one of my few guilty pleasures that I can't seem to quit. Plus, it's almost over now. I have to see how it ends!I could write a review for this book but my thoughts would mirror exactly what I said here about book 9. Other than the always ridiculous stereotyping of Kramisha and overuse of offensive words - such as how to use retard in various forms from asstard to fucktard (really? I get that young people insult each other for fun but there couldn't have been something else to use for the sake of realism other than retard?), I seem to be mellowing out when it comes to the House of Night crew. I have to just take these books for what they are : a series full of characters who I love to hate and hate to love, along with a bunch of annoying stereotypes all wrapped up in a package of fun adventures. I may roll my eyes at times, but at least I'm not bored. It's no secret that I've never been a fan of Zoey but I have grown fonder of Rephaim, Kalona, Stevie Ray and Aphrodite. Aphrodite had a few of my favorite lines :"Oh for shit's sake, who hasn't tried to kill you? Or Zoey. Or me for that matter. Get over it."It puts the lotion in the bucket."I'm so happy that the twins have been split up. They're both more interesting, now that they're not fused together. One is becoming the wise sage, while the other is becoming the dark wild child :Shaunee to Kalona : "Seems like knowing how many kids you have is a good place to start in the whole I'd-like-to-be-a-good-dad-thing."Erin goes girls-gone-wild : "Sounds good to me. I like wearing nothing but water." Erin peeled off her thong. Now all she had on were her Christian Louboutin boots. She ran her hands all over her body with the water. "Wanta get wet with me?"Hey, I've already accepted that this series is ridiculously immature, yet it still somehow manages to be extremely sexually charged at the same time. It took me a while to get to this point of acceptance, but if we're going to get this contradiction of writing styles, then I'm gonna milk my money's worth in the bizarre-pendulum-of-behavior department.
