Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer  ROrn
Zoey Redbird is an absolutely normal girl with a best friend and an almost-boyfriend, until she gets marked. One day, the tracker comes for her and marks her sending her to the House of Night, the vampyre school. She gets scared and runs home only to find that her parents are in a fright and then she runs to her Grandma Redbird's. She ends up falling unconscious and goes to see the goddess, Nyx, who puts a special mark on Zoey. When Zoey finally makes it to the House of Night, she is a complete outsider because of the strange mark, that is until the whole school gets overturned and Zoey has to help save it.

This is truly one of the best books I have ever read. I couldn't even put it down to go to sleep! I loved how Cast actually made it sound like a teenager, not an older person trying to sound like a teenager. This book shows the ancient struggle between good and evil, in a way that we can all understand. Cast made an amazing bunch of characters; from Damien the gay guy, to Erik the sweet hottie! I loved this book and everything in it! I can't wait for the next!

There is some talk of sex and characters involved in oral sex.
