SUMMARY
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. 

 

I knew there was a reason I loved the series. It’s addicting. I have come across Marked few years back when I was still in college, a friend of mine mentioned it. Since then I have read it few times but been a while, so decided to re-read it. Despite me reading the first book multiple times, I couldn’t put it out. The story was so engaging, I found myself reading most of time that I wasn’t working. Within only few pages, I was rooting for Zoey. It was a fast paced book but there wasn’t a single page where something big wasn’t happening. It’s what makes it such good book. 


Zoey: I loved her from start. Once she was Marked, I knew that there must been a reason that she was Chosen to be Marked. Once she saw and talked to the Goodness, Nyx , even before she said anything, I knew that she had special plans for her. I did feel bad for her, of how her mother reacted when she was marked. Whatever happened to loving your child no matter what? There is feeling that only reason that she acted this way was because of her husband. I got a feeling that he doesn’t care about Zoey at all, unless she’s going make him look bad. It’s a good thing that she got out of that household. Good thing that she has her Grandmother, I loved the relationship between the two of them. It reminded me a lot of my grandma and me. Zoey is strong; it takes a lot of courage to go through what she did. It seemed like she was only one who didn’t let Aphrodite bully her, and decided take actions into her own hands. I know that she will do great as new leader of Dark Daughters. 


Erik & Heath: I’m between two of them. Heath, I got mixed feelings about right now. Part of me doesn’t like him, don’t think that he’s right for Zoey because of his drinking; it seems that almost any time she sees him, he’s wasted. Another part of me can tell that he cares for her that he means it when he says that he loves her, even if Zoey doesn’t believe him half of time. Erik, how can you not love him? I think he would be good for Zoey and I could tell that he doesn’t only care for her because of her Mark but that he deeply cares for her. It probably be good for both of them. 


Marked is filled with suspense, romance, thriller. If you love books about Vampires, this is unlike any vampire book that you read before. Once you finish Marked, you will want to pick up Betrayed right away. P.C & Kristin Cast have a way to keep reader keep on going.
