So, for those of you who know me, I LOVE vampire novels. Absolutely ADORE them. I don't care how the author describes the vampires but I just LOVE vampires. Twilight is my favorite book, of course. It was the starting point of my whole "vampire-loving" thing. My best friends recommended me this book because (1) it's about vampires and (2) it's in the library.
Marked is the first book for the "House of Night" series by Kristin Cast and P.C. Cast. It revolves around a 16 year old Zoey Redbird who gets Marked by a vampyre tracker and begins to undergo the "Change" into an actual vampyre. So, she gets kicked out of her house because everyone is freaked out by her glowing crescent moon mark which indicates that she has been Marked and moves to a vampyre boarding school called the House of Night. There, she meets other fledglings just like her, also undergoing the "Change". Those whose bodies are not strong enough or reject the "Change" will die...
At the House of Night, she meets new friends and a whole new family, but she is not like any normal fledgling. She's different...
To my opinion, I am LOVING this book. I would say about 4 out 5! It creates enough creepiness for the reader to flip to the next page nonstop but is also able to relate to teenagers our age about friendship and crushes. I'm going to go on the the next book, Betrayed, once I finish the book I'm reading now, which is "Carrie". I may do another review again about "Carrie", so stay tuned!
For those of you out there who have read this book, or even better, the whole SERIES, please please please comment what you think about this book! Did you like/not like it?
