House of Night is a young-adult book series written by P.C. Cast and her daughter, Kristin Cast. It is about average teenagers who are marked by the Vampyre Goddess, Nyx. Once they are marked, they need to go to the House of Night, the school for fledgling vampyres, to complete the Change or else, they die.

When teenagers are marked, they get a crescent moon tattoo on their foreheads which will be completed once they complete the Change. But once Zoey was marked, her tattoos were already complete and covering almost all of parts of her face – a sign that she was special to Nyx. It was hard accepting the fact that you are marked and have to say your farewell to your human friends and go to the House of Night. Same went with Zoey but her Granma helped her.

Once she was in the school for vampyres and fledglings, she met her new friends who made it easier to accept what she was becoming. But as people say, “if you have friends comes your enemy,” Zoey finds herself in a one-on-one battle with the leader of the Dark Daughters, Aphrodite, for becoming the next High Priestess of Nyx and for the love of Eric, a drama boy.

I don’t recommend this to myself – even though I already read it. This book is not that good and I don’t recommend this to people who like vampire romances. If I would recommend this book, I would recommend this to people who like vampires who act like witches – the Vampyres. This book wouldn’t satisfy your vampire addiction and I would rate it three stars out of five.

I read the book because of my friend's plea. Now, I am not very pleased, to be honest.

I actually hate/despise most young adult vampire novels, such as Twilight, but I loved these series as they go on and found them very compelling. If you haven't read the rest of the series I strongly recommend it as they just keep getting better :)
