BURNED COVER REVEALED!


RELEASE DATE APRIL 27TH!

HERE IT IS! AND HERE'S THE COVER COPY:
When friends stop trusting each other, Darkness is there to fan the
flames....

Things have turned black at the House of Night. Zoey Redbird's soul has
shattered. With everything she's ever stood for falling apart, and a
broken heart making her want to stay in the Otherworld forever, Zoey's
fading fast. It's seeming more and more doubtful that she will be able
pull herself back together in time to rejoin her friends and set the
world to rights. As the only living person who can reach her, Stark must
find a way to get to her. But how? He will have to die to do so, the
Vampire High Council stipulates. And then Zoey will give up for sure.
There are only 7 days left...

Enter BFF Stevie Rae. She wants to help Z but she has massive problems
of her own. The rogue Red Fledglings are acting up, and this time not
even Stevie Rae can protect them from the consequences. Her kinda
boyfriend, Dallas, is sweet but too nosy for his own good. The truth
is, Stevie Rae's hiding a secret that might be the key to getting Zoey
home but also threatens to explode her whole world.

In the middle of the whole mess is Aphrodite: ex-Fledgling, trust-fund
baby, total hag from Hell (and proud of it). She's always been blessed
(if you could call it that) with visions that can reveal the future, but
now it seems Nyx has decided to speak through her with the goddess's own
voice, whether she wants it or not. Aphrodite's loyalty can swing a lot
of different ways, but right now Zoey's fate hangs in the balance.

Three girls... playing with fire... if they don't watch out, everyone
will get Burned.

KrystofaHill said...

Hey P C CAST, do you know whether the cover is going to be the same in the UK, i really want stevie ray on the UK cover aswell. :) Also on wikipedia it says a load of lists of titles of the house of night books. Are these the titles that you are going to use in the future books.

Pleassse write back ill muchly appreciate it, thankyou so much for writing <3

PC Cast said...

KrystofaHill - Wikipedia IS NOT CORRECT! I don't even know the title of the next book yet. It's bullpoopie - ignore it.

chrissy_baby95 said...

wow!!!! that cover looks amazing!!! is that the uk cover aswell or is there going to be a different uk cover??? anyway i cant wait for burned to come out because i really want to know what happens to all of the people!!! it is driving me crazy ( not literally, i dont think...? )!!! anyway i love the whole series and are you coming back to the uk because by the time i had found out about and read the books, you had already left :( anyway i hope zoey gets with stark (either in this book or in the end) because that would just be my perfect ending because i have wanted zoey to get with stark since he was first introduced!!! anyway me and my friend love the books ( i got her into them :D ) and we cant wait for the rest of the series :D
p.s. sorry about going on for so long and for saying anyway so much

I really look forward to each book. I tell everyone from age 12 to 62(my mom) and everyone in between. I love the plots . i love being able to escape from daily dramas to hear more and more about these brave young girls. Thank you for the joy and excitement of once being a teenager. thanks so much to you both. Myrrissa

Courtneylee07 said...

P.C. Cast, I absolutely love your books. I can't wait Burned comes out. I really like Stevie Ray and how everything has recently happened in her life. These books are mysterious, romantic, and keep you on the edge. I read your House of Night books the day they came out. I am really inspired on how you and your daughter wrote these novels. I am only 15, but you've inspired me for the future. I hope to be a writer someday, or be as inspiring as you. Thank you so much. <3 Courtney

Riley said...

Which charecters are on the cover of the books?

Zoey is on tempted but who were the two guys with her Heath and Stark?

*Mrs.Duke* said...

Awesome, I can't wait to tell the girls about this. You books are getting very popular in the Military spouse households. :)

Jasmine said...

Lauren said...

ohmygoodness!! I love how the cover looks with Stevie Rae! I just can't wait to read this book. Oh, and my friend wanted me to ask you, (you might not answer due to spoilers) but she wants to know if Kalona is absolutely losing his mind because Zoey is stuck in the Otherworld.

Taylor said...

This cover is amazing! I'm really excited for this book. Ive loved every bit of the series so far and I have a few friends who are also excited for the release! We'll definitly be having a party :)

beka said...

omg wow, i love that stevie rae is on the cover i soooo want it to be the same in the uk, because the one for tempted royally sucked. they put tattoo's on her stomach but there wasn't even a cresent moon on her forhead.

and jugding from that description im guessing im going to be shedding a few tears while reading this book.

thanx for being such awesome writers PC + Kristen.

x x x x x
Love Beka

K. R. Blackwell said...

PC, this made my day! I follow childrenofnyx.com on twitter and I was at a History Club Presentation rehearsal on the Olympics for my school when I received a tweet that said "BURNED COVER RELEASED!". Well at that point I started jumping up and down and was said "I can't believe it!" and kinda got in trouble for being loud and disruptive during our presentation. But oh well this is much more interesting.

JennyMac said...

AWESOMEEEE ^-^

Kate Grover said...

I love how the cover came out, it looks really amazing :D, I can't wait to rush out and buy Burned when it hits store shelves!

blue_baby77 said...

Oh I hope Stark doesnt die for Zoey(although that would be super romanctic). Zoey has lost enough without losing Stark too. I heart me some Zoey and Stark! I'm a married stay at home mother of 3 and your books have just lit up my world lol. Thank you so very much for writing these!! Well done you and Kristin!!! I have gotten that and OH MY Goddess stuck in my head now! my friends think I am crazy, but I have gotten them addictted also lol... are we going to be able to read the first chaphter online like the others?? If so that would be awesome!! Thanks again

Kiden said...

OMG OMG!! I can't wait for Burned!! *jumping hyperly*

Kelly Renee said...

*jaw drops* O_O
This cover is definitely different from all the other ones. PC, do you have any say in what the covers look like? If so, how much?

Eva said...

PC

I love the cover and the teaser that you gave us. I do love the story line and the cliff hangers you give us.

I do have a question for you. Through out the books you have said that the tatoos are lace like and intericate (SP) but i have seen them very bold and thick. Maybe i am just very much for detail.

thank you for the writtings you do....Keri

marie said...

I love it! OMG! I can't wait! Thank you SO much! I can't believe It's coming out in April instead! That makes me feel better haha! and exactly two months after my birthday! lol that amkes me exeptionally happy. ^.^

Kerri said...

Awesome cover!! Just pre-ordered it. Can't wait til April!

VampirePrincess said...

Oh mi godd! i can not wait till it comes out april 27th! i think its going to be the best book you have written in the series so far! Eeesh i can not wait!

alyssanjustin said...

I don't trust Wikipedia as well so when I first seen it I asked for a source and there was none given so I blew it off and didn't post it on childrenofnyx.com because it wasn't from you. Anyone could post something on there. As far as the cover, do you like it PC? I think it is sort of different then the rest but still great!

mean mom productions said...

Great cover..thanks for my prize pack form the design contest.

Ang from Oz said...

Having Stevie Rae on the cover makes a nice change doesn't it! Looks awesome!

Izabelle said...

OMG! Yes, I can't wait to read it.

Erin said...

The cover is amazing. I see that Stevie Ray is on the cover this time. I hope you get to post the first chapter soon. I can't wait to read it. Poor Aphrodite I pitty her. Maybe she will get her Mark back.

I heart you both. Please keep up the great work.

Hows the bookmark idea comming? Sorry if I am being annoying with it. *sweat drop*

Erin

Lady Van Tassel said...

I'm so excited on BURNED. i can't wait for it! more books to come! she really looks good. i wish that models released in H.O.N website will be the REAL CAST :) they portray the image so WELL.

stephi_gallant said...

Gaby Paschoal said...

I just loved it! :)

StrawberryLace said...

PC
Can you give me some advise, im writing this story and all my friends think that its really good, its not finnished yet and it needs tweaking. I was just wondering how to get published? I know it must be really hard and i dont expect to get published, i was just asking how would you do it?
Thanks great cover :D

Neferet said...

Thank you so much for this information... i love the cover

zigzagzoey said...

i wonder what the UK cover is like lolsz i would love to see it. x

ashbluedolphin said...

wow thats cool that stevie rae is on the cover instead of zoey. i love the books im corrently on the 5th book and almost done with it so i should be done with this one and tempted, and i might start another series while im waiting i cant wait

Ang from Oz said...

So.. Any news on the HON Handbook? I was hoping it would be out soon! ;)

PC Cast said...

I do like this cover very much. Stevie Rae has a big role in this book, so I think it's very appropriate. I do have some input on covers, but the design team at St. Martin's are genius!

Ang - I hope to have release info on THE FLEDGLING HANDBOOK in the next few weeks. I'll post as soon as I know something.

I imagine my publisher will post chapter 1 online, but I don't know when.

Eva - everyone's idea of what the tattoos look like is different. That's cool with me. I like to see what others envision, even if it's not what I see as I write. I really don't sweat the small stuff...

StrawberryLace - I have an entire blog post in my archives about advice for aspiring authors. Good luck.

LouisianaModel said...

P.C. Cast,

Wow! I heart the cover of Burned. I can't wait for it to come out in bookstores.

I had a friend that introduced me to the House of Night series about a year ago, and I've been obsessed ever since. You and Kristin write so well. I have ADD and don't really read, so when I started reading the series my mom thought there was something wrong with me. Hee hee! But I love your books and can't wait for the rest to come out.

I read in an earlier blog, you said to give Zoey a break about which guy she is going to choose. I agree. I wanted Zoey to be with Heath and Stark be only her warrior and forget about Erik because he's a jerk, but then Heath died. I wanted to cry. So I agree with you when you say let her be and give her room to do what she has to do to save the world and her friends and her home and leave the boy trouble until after the clear. Heck, she could just say forget you all and end it there.

Sorry I'm typing so much. I just wanted to say thanks for the books for helping with my ADD and helping we learn bigger words so I can read more.

Blessed be!

Cammie Alexandria said...

nicolesismoneytoo said...

I was confused at first, isn't a different model shown for stevie ray on the house of night series website? Well anyways I love the cover and can't wait for the book to come out! Please do a book tour in Tampa florida! Can we pre order the books? Just wondering, with the new book and movie I am super excited.

Catharina said...

Catharina.

Jodi said...

OMG!!! I have been waiting so long for this to come out! I've only known about this series for about a year but it didn't take long for me to get hooked! :)

blue_baby77 said...

Hi there! Thank you for answer my q! I woulda have known if I would have looked at the HoN web site, it says chaphter 1 comming soon! I also just wanted to say that you must just be a wonderful person for taking the time to acknowledge your fans and answering them!

PC, nós no Brqasil te amamos ! <3'
muito obrigada por finalmente revelar a capa e a descrição de Burned *_*
Kiss:*

alyssaaahhh said...

Wow, this is gorgeous! I kinda miss Zoey being on the cover's but this is great too! I can't wait! I just finished Tempted like two hours ago! :D

M1n@ said...

PC Cast
I am very thrilled to know Burned will be out soon and I have enjoyed your series. I look forward to reading anything after Burned. I am not a writer but I am a teenage poet. I would love to get advice from you. Maybe one day you would come to where I live and I could actually get a chance to meet you. Well I am off to wait for your next book.

If you have time write Back.

PC Cast said...

M1n - I'm not a poet and have nadda for poetry advice. My writer's advice in general holds, though, and can be found in the archives of this blog. Good luck.

PC Cast said...

Uh, no. Z's not a red fledgling.

rosa said...

Hi Pc and kristen! Quick question, does heath now have dark hair instead of blonde? The photo on the HoN website makes me question.....

esal said...

Hi PC Cast! I'm so excited for Burned! I'm wiriting from Turkey and I'm a big fan of your books.

I want to ask a question: Will Zoey get her tattoos back in this book? I'M looking forward for your answer. Thanks... :))

~GirL In The MirroR~ said...

Hi P.C.! (:
Firstly I love HON books. They're amazing. And I love this cover.
I wonder what happened to Zoey's tattoo. Will they coming back?

Thank you in advance for answer (:

PC Cast said...

Rosa - everyone has a different interpretation of what the characters look like. No, Heath's hair color has not changed in the books, but the images you see of him are only one viewpoint.

Regarding Zoey's tattoos - that's a plot spoiler, and I can't give those away. You'll have to wait and see!

stark said...

hi so y cant u tell us is z gets her tatoows back and i love the books i have read all of them that r out like 20 time and now iam on marked agen lol please right back in u have time.

zoe said...

I Luv It!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The cover ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That kinda looks like Taylor Swift on the cover. I can't wait until April 27th (that's actully 10 days after my sister's birthday and mine's Feb. 19th, so I might not get it for a while). So far, the best way to calm myself when I think of one of the THE BEST SERIES OF BOOKS EVER(!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) is to imagine, or think of how the book's going so far and then it makes it less painful to think about the books.

PC Cast said...

Zoe - the book can't come out any sooner. Seriously. It's not like I write it and it goes to Kinkos. Please. Just please.

*Mrs.Duke* said...

PC I am so sorry about the FAKE 1-4 chapters that some girl made. I just seen the post on my facebook about it. The impatience of some people. Don't let it get you down hun, you work is awesome. Hope you meet you in person some day at a book signing with other navy wives! Hope the weather stays better.
Ashley

SMM21 said...

About time Stevie Ray got her cover & I am dying to know how a Red Vampire & a Raven Mocker can imprint. At the end of Tempted I was left to pray that you would write quickly lol. LOVE LOVE LOVE the U.S. cover.

cheyenne said...

Oh , my goodness ! I just wanted to let ya know that you are such a great author ! I hope one day I can write a book as wonderful as all of your books our. I am counting down the days until burned ! <3 :)

Stephanie said...

I just finished Tempted tonight. I've read all of them since last Thurs or Friday and had to keep myself from reading what it said about Burned. I am quite anxious to find out what happens next. A friend and I have been discussing it and I'm impatient for my hubby to catch up to me on the reading. He's about halfway through Hunted.

The cover looks incredible and the brief summary just has me chomping at the bit. April suddenly seems so far away. (Or maybe it's all the darn snow and WINTER we've had this year.)

It's funny, you have us wanting to drive around Tulsa seeing all the spots in the book. It's been so wild reading something where you know all the locations and references, like Chera and Travis Meyer and Charlie's Chicken and Petty's.

Blessed Be to you from Owasso!
~Stephanie

christina.carol said...

Hey! I LOVE HoN!!! i was just wondering if Burned is the last in the series? i really hope not...i never want it to end :)

Phebe H.L. said...

Wow this cover is co great!! I CAN'T WAIT. I literally eat these books whole.
YYYYYYYYYYYYYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYY

Alyssbird said...

OMG!!! HON is the best series there is in the world!! you hacve just got to read it!! i try and talk to people about it but they don't read them!!! I love stevie rae she is the best character but now Aphrodite can't spy on her to see if anythings wrong!!! how can stevie rae not tell her BFF very Important stuff! and peeps who want to know if Zoey gets her marks back PC can't tell you or else it will spoil the book!!!!

PC do you do book signing? in the UK? and if you do can you tell me when your next 1 is plz!

Lindsay, Gloucester

Serena said...

Hey i'm just wondering if Zoey ends up with stark? Also if there are gonna be more after burned and i cant wait to read it ....so many months away:(

*Mrs.Duke* said...

I am missing me some Stark and Zoey romance right now specially when it is romance season. I am feedinng my appetite with a few books from the library though in the mean time. Just wanted to stop by and wish you and Kristen a Happy Valentines Day.

Simply_Dina said...

I absolutely CANNOT wait! I almost cried at the fact that i finished tempted and didnt have burned to grab right away... The cover is AWESOME Ms. Cast I cant wait!!!

lexaaay said...

im very obsessed with this series ive read all your books up to tempted and i finished it in 2 days from valentines day to the next day day 2 pm which is today [; ! same with hunted . but yeah i love the cover and i just have to say starks amazingly gorgeous please ever dont stop writeing these boooks!

syareeza said...

When it'll be release in malaysia? I want to buy it as soon as it release.heheh. And I can't wait to read it!!! I hope you reply my comment asap. :)

Gavriela said...

I just finished Tempted and can't wait to read Burned. What is your opinion on your publisher not making the ebook availabke until July? (I bought and read the rest of the series in ebook format)

PC Cast said...

Syareeza - I don't know the pub schedule for Malaysia, but if you check with your local bookstore they can tell you.

Gavriela - Authors have little control over what format or when their publishers will release their manuscripts. So, what's my opinion about the ebook issue? I would like all of my books to be available to everyone who wants them in any and all formats. The reality is I can't control that, though.

Sarah_is_awsome said...

Omigod I cant wait until burned come out i have to know wat happens to Neferet she like my numba one favorit character in the whole series i will soooooo rule the world and destroy all the humans with her question does neferet dies if she does i will die as well

Katie :) said...

WOW! i am so exicted :) i prefer the US cover though :) cant wait for April!! SOO exicted!! :)

Just Dreams said...

love the cover and love the series. Is a shame but I discovery the books last friday and literally read each book per night.... I really want to have in my hands "Burned" *-*.

Book Princess said...

I am a major fan i just wrote a review about the series for those kids who want to hear a review from a teen with similar intrests. :) i just can't wait for April!

ava-chan said...

Just a little question, how many books will there be in all? the series is absolutely amazing, i just wanna know how many books in total there will be. :) that way when it's reaching the end of the series, i can be all 'OMG! NUU!! I LOVE THIS SERIES! IT WAS MY NEXT HARRY POTTER-BUT NOT REALLY CUZ TEH STORYLINE AND EVERYTHING IS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT!' lol.

PC Cast said...

There will be at least 12 books in the series.

Kathryn said...

I was wondering what exactly the Otherworld is?
Could anyone tell me?

PC Cast said...

Kathryn - the Otherworld is wherever your imagination puts it.

Stephanie said...

Ok, I got Marked out of the library last week and just finished Tempted this morning. (My dad kept making comments about me curled up on the couch unable to stop reading.) If I'd put the book down then I'd just keep thinking about it and that never leads to anything productive when it comes to me. ^^ But the books were absolutely amazing! (Although plenty of people have probably told you that, haha) I can't wait for Burned! Two months seems so long when you're addicted to the series. ^^
(Omg I really want to comment about what happened in Tempted but I don't want to ruin it for anyone else who reads these.)
Okay, first Buffy started my whole vampire fascination, then Angel continued it, Then TruBlood/Sookie Stackhouse novels (omg the books are sooo much better then the TV series. so much less cussing) and Vampire Diaries (again, the books are waaay better. I mean WHERE is Meredith in the show?!), then Vampire Kisses, now you're books (and after hearing there’s a movie possibility I'm both afraid and excited. So many movies botch the books.)
((wow this is getting long))
I want to let you know that I write too. I've been writing since like... third grade? Somewhere around there at least. When I seriously started writing was in eighth grade and finished one 120 page story about two girls who decided it would be fun (and out of character for the time period its set in) to sneak onto a pirate ship and look around. Unfortunately, they get trapped and hide and then split up when they're attacked and one turns vampire.
So, needless to say, I have a slight vampire/paranormal world addiction. But out of all the vampire books (and TV) I think I like yours best. It has more realistic hardship that integrates the vampires to make it believable. (Plus Zoey's aversion to swearing. I can sooo identify with that!)
Ok, this is really long so I'm gonna stop now, (can you tell I like to write? lol) I love how you write and I love the books and I love Zoey! (By the way, Stark is my favorite character.)

Cait said...

I am so excited for Burned!!! I read somewhere that the books will from this point be done through the Red Vampires eyes opposed to Zoey's...? Kinda surprised but you never know what you can and can not trust on the internet. Either way I love the books & Zoey is someone I think we can all relate to (minus all the cool powers of course haha). Can't wait for the book!

PC Cast said...

Cait - nope, those rumors are not true.

lovinpink809 said...

Dear P.C. Cast,
is this for suree the cover for BURNED? becausee it would be better to keep Zoey as the focus for thee coverss ! :/
and also are the books gonna stay mostly Zoes POV and then switch off a littlee? i hopee it stays mostly zoeys :))

i gotta say how much i love u and kristin and the books are BEYOND AMAZINGG! :D thank you veryyy muchh for them! :D

PC Cast said...

Yes. This is for sure the cover for BURNED. The pov stays the same as it was for TEMPTED - I switch back and forth.

Jessi Girl said...

OMG!!!! i am sooo friggn stoked for this book! i just knew something like this would happen between Zoey and Stark! i say hats off to Kristin and PC cast cause you sure as hell got one addicted reader!
AHHHHHHHH! i cant wait!

- R A C H A E L said...

you are a totally awesome writer !
can you erm , never stop publishing your awesome books! THEY ARE TOTALLY NICE. :)
Love.

Tatyana Awesome said...

PC Cast said...

Izzy said...

Mimi-chii said...

Dear PC Cast,
When is the next book in the series coming out? I read all the other books in the house of night series, and i just can't wait. I completely fell in love with your series!!! So exited~! :D

neveen1001 said...

i was wondering if you pick the acters for the movie bacuse if you do you should pick the acters in the year book

colorguardgirlofyaweh said...

Dear PC Cast,

I realize I have joined this conversation extremely late, but I have an important question. Why does the picture of Stevie-Rae, on the cover of Burned, look like Taylor Swift???? (Not that it bothers me, but I just wanted to know.)
inquizzitively,
allie

PC Cast said...

Sorry, Allie, can't answer your question because the Stevie Rae model doesn't look like Taylor Swift to me. She has, since 2010, looked like Stevie Rae with hair a little too long.
