Authors: P.C. Cast & Kristin Cast
Series: House of Night
Summary: Zoey is Marked as a fledgling vampyre, but there’s something different about her: she’s been blessed by Nyx herself. Her whole existence changes once she gets to the House of Night and begins her vampyre education.
I enjoyed this book much more than I thought I would and I cannot wait to read book two. I really like it when people bring genetics and science into vampire stories. Cast has come up with the premise that some teenagers have some junk DNA that turns them into a vampyre during puberty.
I also found myself not bothered with the portrayal of rituals in this series, like I have with many other series. To me, that’s a really big deal. I dislike it when books over fantasize with Pagan things, so I was pleasantly surprised to find myself not really complaining during the ritual scenes in this book.
I’m now definitely a House of Night fan.
