Grade 9 Up—In 16-year-old Zoey Redbird's world, vampyres not only exist but are also tolerated by humans. Those whom the creatures "mark" as special enter the House of Night school where they will either become vampyres themselves, or, if their body rejects the change, die. To Zoey, being marked is truly a blessing, though she's scared at first. She has never fit into the human world and has always felt she is destined for something else. Her grandmother, a descendant of the Cherokee, has always supported her emotionally, and it is she who takes the girl to her new school. But even there the teen stands apart from the others. Her mark from the Goddess Nyx is a special one, showing that her powers are very strong for one so young. At the House of Night, Zoey finds true friendship, loyalty, and romance as well as mistrust and deception. She realizes that all is not right in the vampyre world and that the problems she thought she left behind exist there as well. Readers will identify with many of the characters, especially the protagonist. The story moves quickly (a little too quickly at the end) and purposely leaves many unresolved issues. A good choice for those libraries serving fans of the occult, but be aware that the book contains some suggestive language and sex.

Interesting new twist on vampyres - I enjoyed the read though I wasn't as totally hooked on it as I've heard others say. The ending did seem rather rushed after all the build-up.....

Kiri won this in the Series Swap and asked that I send it to shaunie on her behalf (along with the next 2 in the series) so I'll mail as soon as all three are ready.

Very interesting way to build a vampyre world. I liked this one enough so I am going to continue with book 2. I think I am going to send this to another BookObsessed member for a monthly exchange and see if she likes it.
