When sixteen-year-old Zoey Redbird gets Marked as a fledgling vampire she must join the House of Night school where she will train to become an adult vampire. That is, if she makes it through the Change. But Zoe is no ordinary fledgling. She has been chosen as special by the Goddess Nyx and discovers her amazing new power to conjure the elements: earth, air, fire, water and spirit. When Zoey discovers that the leader of the Dark Daughters, the school’s most elite group, is misusing her Goddess-given gifts, Zoey must look within herself to embrace her destiny – with a little help from her new vampire friends.
What Girlie Gossip Thought…
After reading the Twilight series from start to finish we we looking for something new and exciting to ‘get our teeth into’ so to speak. Marked, by mother and daughter writing team PC and Kristen Cast seemed like a great way to fill the void, and we ended up being really impressed with what it had to offer!
Probably the best way to describe the book is Gossip Girl meets Twilight, it will appeal to teenage readers and is well written, entertaining and has an exciting, original take on the Vampire genre.
Marked is the first in the series of ‘House of Night’ books, and we can’t wait to see what else is in store for Zoey as the series progresses!
Watch out for books 2 and 3 (Betrayed and Chosen) which will be out in February and March of this year!
