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!
It seems that (un)life is going pretty well for Zoey Redbird. She’s settled in at the House of Night finishing school and is coming to terms with the vast powers the vampyre goddess, Nyx, has given her. She even has a boyfriend … or two. Best of all, Zoey finally feels she has found somewhere she belongs. Then the unthinkable happens.
Human teenagers are being killed, and all the evidence points to the vampires at Zoey's school. While danger stalks the humans from Zoey's past life, she begins to realise that the very powers that made her so unique might also threaten those she loves. Then, when she needs her new friends the most, death strikes the House of Night. Zoey finds herself facing a betrayal that could break her heart and jeopardise the very fabric of her world.
