Grade 9 Up—In 16-year-old Zoey Redbird's world, vampyres not only exist but are also tolerated by humans. Those whom the creatures "mark" as special enter the House of Night school where they will either become vampyres themselves, or, if their body rejects the change, die. To Zoey, being marked is truly a blessing, though she's scared at first. She has never fit into the human world and has always felt she is destined for something else. Her grandmother, a descendant of the Cherokee, has always supported her emotionally, and it is she who takes the girl to her new school. But even there the teen stands apart from the others. Her mark from the Goddess Nyx is a special one, showing that her powers are very strong for one so young. At the House of Night, Zoey finds true friendship, loyalty, and romance as well as mistrust and deception. She realizes that all is not right in the vampyre world and that the problems she thought she left behind exist there as well. Readers will identify with many of the characters, especially the protagonist. The story moves quickly (a little too quickly at the end) and purposely leaves many unresolved issues. A good choice for those libraries serving fans of the occult, but be aware that the book contains some suggestive language and sex.—Donna Rosenblum, Floral Park Memorial High School, NY

From the moment I stuck my face in this book it hooked me! Totally awesome new take on vampires! Marked is hot and dark and funny. It rocks! (Gena Showalter, author of MTV’s Oh My Goth)
Cast reeled me in from paragraph one. I snorted and giggled through the whole thing, and devoured it in one sitting. (MaryJanice Davidson, New York Times best-selling author of the Undead series)

I'm sorry but there was no character development. The main character is a whinny shallow little girl that does nothing to be special but the book is all about how special she... Read morePublished on Aug. 15 2013 by Ms.Readalot

I don't recommend this series of books to teenagers. These books focus on sexual attention and a lot of coarse language. It's okay not the best.Published on Sept. 4 2009 by Ladybugs
Arrived by mail very quickly. The book is in wonderful condition and an excellent read.Published on Aug. 1 2009 by M. S. McKay
I have no idea why this book is receiving so many glowing reviews. The new take on vampires was, I suppose, interesting, but the quality of writing was horrible. Read morePublished on July 21 2009 by Joshua Paul
