The book is in English.

Norwegian review:
Vampyrene kommer til Hogwarts.

Vel... kanskje ikke til Hogwarts. Men P.C. og Kristin Cast har begynt en ny serie med ungdomsbøker satt i et magisk univers. Denne gangen med vampyrer. For de som har lest bøkene om Sookie Stackhouse eller sett tv-serien "True Blood", tenk om den serien var satt til ungdoms/videregående med noen små variasjoner.

"House of Night" serien handler hovedsakelig om Zoey på 16 år, som i første kapittel i første bok blir funnet av en "seeker" (en som finner would-be-vampires) og merket. For Zoey er dette et rimelig stort problem siden stefaren hennes er en eldste i "People of the faith" (kirkesamfunnet som flest er med i). Han mener vampyrer er demoner, og da Zoey prøver å få moren sin og stefar til å ta henne med til der de som er merket bor, House of Night, prøver de å sperre henne hjemme for at de kan "be henne ut av det". I dette universet dør unge merkede om de ikke er i nærheten av voksne vampyrer, og de bor på House of Night. Hun kommer seg listig nok ut av den situasjonen, og takket være bestemoren kommer hun seg til sitt nye hjem der hun blir mottatt med åpne armer.

Det viser seg at Zoey er eksepsjonelt velsignet av Gudinnen Nyx (venn deg til å høre det, det står faktisk på annen hver side) med den ene superkraften etter den andre. Hun er tøffest av alle og innen en måned er hun sterkeste vampyr-to-be som noen sinne har levd, generelt sjef og kan banke hvem som måtte være i magi, godhet, omsorg og uhm... å være vampyr.

Morsom lesning, men kan best sammenlignes med billig husmorporno (uten porno) i skrivestilen, ment for unge jenter som digger vampyrer, naturreligioner og å kle seg i svarte klær, uten at boken har noen nevneverdig dybde.

Arrived today. I'll start reading it as soon as I finish my current read - I only got about 150 pages to go in that one. Thanks for sharing Chickxsy

Journal Entry 5 by DitteL from Næstved, Storstrøms Amt Denmark on Friday, November 06, 2009
I was a bit surprised but I actually liked this book. Of course I must admit that my only experience with teenage-vampire-fiction is the Twilligt books which I didn't like. What makes this book so much better is that Zoey is actually likeable and acknowledge that the she isn't center of the universe. I actually would like to read the next book in the series to find out what will happen to Zoey and what is going on with Elizabeth and Eliott.

Thanks for shaing. I'll mail the book to the next reader tomorrow.

Journal Entry 8 by Jujuks on Saturday, November 28, 2009
I normally enjoy vampire books and this one was no different. I really enjoyed the plot and I agree with DitteL, Zoey is a very likable character but there were parts of this book that were kind of irritating. Aphrodite's personality seems way too exaggerated, especailly when she said "This place is cool because I'm cool". Also, the conversation between Zoey's group was pretty unrealistic sometimes, it looked like the authors were trying to come up with witty comments, that while witty, sometimes felt forced.

I'll send this book out on monday.

At first I thought this book was going to be silly and not for me. I read on and ended up getting hooked. It kind of reminds me of Harry Potter for vamps. lol I'm looking forward to seeing what happens next! Sending on to next reader.

Thanks for Sharing!!

Journal Entry 13 by elidanora from Buenos Aires, Ciudad de Buenos Aires (Capital Federal) Argentina on Monday, January 25, 2010
I would have enjoyed the reading more if the book had had more action and less of zoe´s thinking.
As Rrrcaron I found it reminds me of Harry potter with adolescents and vamps problems.

Thanks for Sharing!!
I´ll return the book soon to the owner.
