    As if being a teenager wasn’t enough of a hassle, Zoey Redbird is Marked to become a vampire. Her best friend acts scared of her, her parents lock her in her room and call their prayer group, and her sort-of ex-boyfriend smells like a big mac to her. Zoey’s only ally on the outside world is her Grandma, who helps Zoey to the House of Night. There, Zoey meets her mentor Neferet, her roommate and new best friend Stevie Rae, and her arch nemesis Aphrodite. Zoey tries to adjust to being the new kid on campus, but her unusual mark, her quick wit and sarcasm, and the fact that Erik- Aphrodite’s ex- likes her causes her a lot of trouble. When she discovers that Nix has chosen her in particular to be a high priestess, Zoey finds that her true power lies not just inside her, but with her new friends as well. There is a great amount of humor and dry wit, typical teenager sarcasm, add in the intrigue and the reality that kids are kids, whether they are normal high schoolers, or third formers, there’s always a bully to have to overcome.
