This is the first book in the House of Night series, written by the mother and daughter team of P.C & Kristin Cast. I had never heard of the series until a friend of mine recommended it to me, and at first i was a little apprehensive, it didn't look very good. But after having read the first book in a matter of days i was pleasently pleased. Once the story gets rolling its quite entertaining and suspenseful. This is marketed in the young adult catagory, but i would warn parents of this …

I've seen books from this series in the stores so often it was almost inevitable I'd end up reading them. I thought maybe I'd just try the one--hmm, isn't that what I said about Twilight too? But the character and the voice have pulled me in; I suspect I'll soon be back for more.      The world of this series is different from ours, in that vampyres (with a "y") are creatures of everyday life, and magic is real. Of course, Harry Potter had magic …

Marked is the first in the House of Night series. We are introduced to Zoey Redbird and a world where vampyres have always existed, where you are tracked down by what resembles a bounty hunter and are "Marked" if you are one of the chosen to learn the ways and eventually become a vampyre. In this case, the story starts with Zoey being marked within the first couple of pages. After the "Change" she is taken to The House of Night (a school for fledgling vampyres-in-training) where she is to begin …

Against her wishes, Zoey Redbird has been Marked a fledgling vampyre. Now she must leave behind the human world she knows in order to just survive and join the House of Night. There she will stay until she becomes a mature adult vampyre, if her body survives the change. But Zoey has greater things to worry about than living to see the next night--her unusual Mark makes her an outcast and shows her great potential when all Zoey wants is to fit in and be normal. These possibilities, like the Change, …

When Zoey is Marked, all hopes of fitting in at her suburban high school seem to suddenly vanish. She already feels like a stranger in her own family, and when her religious step-father finds out that Zoey has been Marked to undergo training to become a vampyre, he is convinced that she is evil, and together, he and her mother refuse to accept that Zoey has only two options...learn how to become a vampyre, or die.    Fitting in at her new school, The House of Night, is nearly …

Early on in my reading of Marked, I wasn't at all sure I would like this young adult novel. The story of Zoey Redbird, a sixteen year old girl who is unhappy at home, becoming "marked" as a fledgling vampyre, just seemed a bit forced. I wanted to feel a part of her story but her angst was overwhelming and I couldn't really see where the plot was headed. However, about midway through, the book picked up steam and by the last few chapters, I was eagerly turning the pages in order to find out how Zoey's …
