This first book sets up the entire series. Its A LOT of plot setting, but its fun to read. Zoey gets marked which means she'll become a vampyre (That's how they spell vampire in this series). In order to do that, she needs to leave her human life behind and attend a school, "House of Night" in order to learn about being an adult vampyre. So if you like the Harry Potter books, this is somewhat like it. Zoey is unique and has special powers, BFF roomates, and they all go to a speacial school in which they need to fight evil. About half of the book is plot setting which is why I thought it dragged, but it picks up at the end. I would suggest if for readers 16 and up since there's a bit of "adult" content at the beginning. Its written through the perspective of a teen, so the story is funny, very easy to read and hard to put down. ;)
This book is great for any vampire lover. If you have read the Twilight books and you liked it, this should be on the top of your reading list. I just absoultly loved the characters like; Zoey, and Erik; they are my favorite. TEAM ZOEY! and TEAM ERIK!
This series is more for a teenage-young adult reader. The reason I say that is because the main character is only 16yrs old. Throughout the book she talks to herself constantly and her babble is very teenage-bopper-valleygirl-immature like. The story itself is great. The best way to explain the book is "Harry Potter vampire style". There are some se#ual references so I wouldnt say the book is for all young adults. The series gets better as it goes and you will find that the last 3 chapters of each of the books are the most eventful and gripping. The 6 books it takes to make this series could really be compared to one good book. So if you're a twilight fan looking for some vampire love story you will be disappointed if you try to compare this series to that of Twilight's.
If you love the Twilight series you will love this book too!!! I could not put it down!!!
I wasent expecting it to hook me like it did.As soon as i was done i orderd the next book....But its not as good as twilight....
The book was very good sucked me in from the begining. Remarkable story line, although nothing compares to the Twilight Series. I will be reading this series... Awesome story!!! I'd reccomend highly!
This book is for teens but I still enjoyed reading it almost as much as Twilight. Twilight is more on the romantic side while this one is more about the every day struggles with a Vampire edge! :) I wish I would have ordered the hardcover series only because I carried the book everywhere! I am currently reading Betrayed (book 2) and I can't wait for the 5th book to come out this October! I highly recommend this series!
It was a very good book -- I would say this is set for over the age of 15 or 16.
I really enjoyed this book. I was hoping it would be as good as the "Twilight" series and it came really close. I like the charactors and the writing style.
Loved this book! A friend told me I had to read this and gave me all her books.... now ive bought them all for me!
Very funny and will make you laugh out loud. I couldnt put it down for days!
Some language and adult content through-out the book so I wouldnt sugest it for younger readers.
Cant wait for the next one... im counting down the days!!!
This book was so good. It had me o the edge of my seat from page one. The best price I've found. Excellent book. It is a must read.
This whole series by the Cast Team is AWESOME!
i have read the first four books in this series and i rally have enjoyed them i like them as much as the twight series maybe even more
This first book is the start to an awesome, addictive series that you will fall in love with! I have read all five books and totally recommend them to people who are big in fantasy and stuff like that.
This is a good series.I am up to Untamed and cannot put the books down.I noticed that a lot of people are comparing this series to Twilight.Don't.First,different setting and second different characters.The only way to know if you will like the book is to buy it.It is a good read.It is from the perceptive of a sixteen year old and we know how they talk come on.The plot is good.The first book takes a little bit to get going but once it does it is a little hard to put down.Or at least it was for me anyway.
My friend recommended this book to me and for that I am very grateful. I did not buy this book from walmart because my mom found it for me @ a yard sale for only 75 cents. Although, why someone would get rid of their copy I don't know. It definitely passed my expectations. I am a huge fan of the Twilight series and wanted to find another book that was as great as that which I never expected to do. With this book I definitely found it came extremely close to passing the Twilight standards.
I bought this book online but before I did I read through some of the reviews first and they all said this was a good book, a little bit slow at first but in the end it was good. I decided that I was going to give it a try and i'm suprised at how good it really was. I didn't think it was slow at first at all it explained alot about what she was feeling and some of the characters that would make another appearence later in the book. I couldn't put it down and finished it in two days. Twilight is one of my favorite series and now I can add the House of night series to my favorite list. I can't wait to read the other books. If your thinking about buying this book I say go ahead and try it you won't be disappointed.
This whole HON series is great, very easy read for teens and adult. Loved it ! I will read it again!
This is a great book, there alot of things going on in this book. I still think that the twilight series is the best and after that series come this one. I'm on my way to read the 2 book.
This is a great book. Its just as good as Twilight just in a different way. One of the best books I have read in a while.
