Additional Details

The House of Night series is set in a world very much like our own, except in 16-year-old Zoey Redbird's world, vampires have always existed. In this first book in the series, Zoey enters the House of Night, a school where, after having undergone the Change, she will train to become an adult vampire--that is, if she makes it through the Change. Not all of those who are chosen do. It's tough to begin a new life, away from her parents and friends, and on top of that, Zoey finds she is no average fledgling. She has been Marked as special by the vampire Goddess, Nyx. But she is not the only fledgling at the House of Night with special powers. When she discovers that the leader of the Dark Daughters, the school's most elite club, is misusing her Goddess-given gifts, Zoey must look deep within herself for the courage to embrace her destiny--with a little help from her new vampire friends.

Pass

I couldn't get very far into this book. The dialogue was terrible and the teens (actually, the adults, too) all sound like stereotypical idiots. I didn't care at all what happened to Zoey and her mother was a laughable excuse of a character. While I give credit to the Casts for doing something a little unique with vampires, the premise of the book is not enough to keep me slogging through the poor writing.

Good

This is a good book. I liked reading it.

Eh

A good book, but not something I would read again sadly.

House of night

Best series ever

Seems good

great reviews on it

a good read, highly recommended!

A definite good choice made in checking this out, can't wait till the following two books in this series get to my hands to read! This book kept
my attention and has a new twist on the vampyre/magic theme. Very interesting and an original plot, I plan on contacting the author to tell her how much I liked her book and become a regular reader of hers too! Happy reading!!!
