For all those Stephenie Meyer fans here’s a brilliant alternative read – even better some say – whilst you await the next instalment from the Meyer stable. The House of Night is a private boarding school, known by those in the know as the vampyre finishing school. When 16 year old Zoey is sent there she’s thrilled for she won’t have to do any more horrible maths tests and there’s only one subject to study: Vampyre 101. But of course there’s always a catch. If you fail in the subject, you die. This is the first in the series and it will be devoured by all those Twilight fans. The House of Night: Betrayed is the second book in the series and The House of Night: Chosen is the third.
This is the second in the series, House of Night: Marked was the first. Fans of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series will love this. It’s a brilliant alternative read. The House of Night is a private boarding school, known by those in the know as the vampyre finishing school. 16 year old Zoey has settled in very well at the school and is coming to terms with her incredible powers, until that is she must devote her attentions to some murders of human teenagers that are taking place and all the evidence points to her new school mates... The House of Night: Marked was the first and The House of Night: Chosen is the third. Review by Claudia (aged 16)This is a really fun book - funny, tense and tragic at times and would recommend it to all teenage girls. The characters where likeable and you felt you could really sympathise when things don’t go well. It was really easy to read and I was glued to it for a couple of days until I finished. Definitely worth a read!
The third in the House of Night sequence. A terrific alternative read to the Stephenie Meyer Twilight series. The House of Night is a private boarding school where trust is a powerful emotion but has been broken, where secrets must be kept. Sinister forces are at work in the school and the line between friend and enemy has become blurred for Zoey, but she must try to make sense of it all if she’s to keep her friends. Like the first two, this is an addictive read.
More adventures from the House of Night school for Vampyres and there is no let up for Zoey in her training as a High Priestess. As pacey and exciting as the previous novels in the series prepare yourself for some dark and fiery goings on.
