Marked by P.C. Cast

Date Read: 2009

Genre: Paranormal, YA

The House of Night series is set in a world very much like our own, except in 16-year-old Zoey Redbird's world, vampyres 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 vampyre 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 vampyre friends.

Marked by P.C. Cast: I decided to fit in a little fun reading last night so I picked up one of the books that was recommended because I liked Twilight. I am far out of the age range that the book is marketed too but I enjoyed the story immensely. I keep in mind while reading these books that the “teenage” talk is because they are teenagers, so that does not get on my nerves. It was a great opening book to a series. It gave you glimpses into each of the characters and was exciting enough that I can’t wait to see what Zoey Redbird will have to deal with next. I recommend this book if you like vampire type of novels
