Except for the fact that vampyres are everywhere and have always existed in this world.
Zoey Redbird, a sixteen-year old girl, has just been marked as a fledgling, the lowest level of a vampyre. She has to join the House of Night, the school where she has to learn and train to be an adult vampyre.
But only if she makes it through the Change. Which not everyone that is Marked does.
Zoey has to begin a new life. Away from everything that she's ever know. On top of that, she's definitely not an average fledgling either.
Zoey has been chosen to have special powers by the vampyre Goddess, Nyx. Everyone can tell this by the special Mark that she has. Like most it's a crescent moon shape, but unlike everyone, hers is completely colored in. Which is unusual to everyone at House of Night because a Mark is usually never fully colored in until the adult vampyre stage.
Along with the special powers that Zoey has, comes the early lust for blood, and her ability to Imprint, unwillingly on her ex-boyfriend, Heath.
Soon Zoey finds out she's not the only one at the House of Night that has special powers. The leader of the Dark Daughters and Sons, the most elite group in the whole school, happens to also have special powers, but unlike most, she is misusing her special powers given to her by the Goddess.
Now Zoey has to look deep inside herself and trust herself. Something that shes not use to doing. Zoey Redbird has to encourage her new destiny and her life, but of course with some help from her new vampyre friends.
I absolutely loved this book. P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast are an amazing mother and daughter writing team. I pretty much read this whole book in one sitting. The authors know how to capture a person within the first paragraph. Marked never got boring or stupid. It kept me guessing and on the edge of me set. I love a book that can do that. Marked was a different kind of vampire book. It was told from a different angle then most, but it still had the natural feel of a vampire book. It also had the perfect blend of romance, surprise, and also friendship. This book would be a great choice for any die hard vampire fan, like myself. Or for someone who isn't really use to vampire books. Either way I think that this is an amazing book and I can't wait to read the rest in the series.
