We are delighted to present our exclusive interview with best-selling author P.C. Cast, who, along with her daughter Kristin Cast, is behind the hit House of Night book series. The latest book in the series, Burned, just hit stores — and P.C. was kind enough to do a quick video interview with us during her current book tour.
We asked her all about The House of Night books (beware a few spoilers), our favorite flash questions & sought her advice on why teens should read … and her response was probably one of the best we’ve ever gotten to that question!
Check out the interview below, then see how you can win a signed copy of Burned!

Meanwhile, here is the official summary for Burned and a cool video trailer from St. Martin’s Press:
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.
