Hi everyone and welcome to my stop on the exciting Blog Tour for Forgotten, the third book in the House of Night Otherworld series, by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast. Thank you to The Fantastic Flying Book Club and Blackstone Publishing for inviting me to be a part of this exciting tour and for gifting me a beautiful copy of this book to read and share with everyone. Thanks for stopping by on the tour!
ABOUT THE BOOK:
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!

If you haven’t read any of the House of Night novels you are seriously missing out! This dynamic mother and daughter duo are amazing and write amazing novels and this novel is a must read!
I loved the House of Night novels and am thrilled to have received a copy of Forgotten (House of Night Otherworld #3) to read and share my opinions with you all. This book is thrilling, magical, dark and edgy! There are many characters that you will love (and love to hate!) and some you will love to read about. Some you will recognize from the House of Night series if you’ve read them, and the story is full of vampires and magic that will pull you in and have you wanting to read more.
I enjoyed reading about Neferet, and her evilness, as well as the Nerd Herd. This novel is fast-paced and you will find yourself falling in love with the storyline as you flip through the chapters and enter into this alternate, other world.
