Review of Marked by P.C. & Kristin Cast (House of Night book 1)

My best friend has been trying to get me to read this series for years now, and I regret not taking her advice sooner.  This book is a really good start to the series.

The authors do a great job with the characters and setting. The vampire school sounds really cool!  I love that the authors did their research regarding the religion aspect. If that was off, it would’ve ruined the whole story for me.

I like Zoey as a character. The way she talks and the way her thought process works is very true to her age (16). Her friends are pretty great too. I was happy for her that she made friends at the new school. Damien is my favorite.  He’s smart, witty, and gay. Excellent!

The book has quite a bit of action and magic, which kept the story interesting.  I really liked seeing Zoey’s affinities manifest.  She even gets a potential boyfriend.  There’s some swearing, incase that bothers anyone.

I’d recommend it to anyone who likes young adult paranormal, magic, and/or vampire books.

I love reading, listening to music, watching wrestling and spending time with my friends and family. I read mostly Young Adult books and I love paranormal books, especially vampire ones. I am originally from Connecticut, but I live in Maryland now. I have a book buying habit and I'm addicted to the book section of my local thrift shop.
