Marked (House of Night, #1)
by P.C. Cast (Goodreads Author), Kristin Cast (Goodreads Author)
P.C. Cast has created a masterpiece!
The House of Night #1 “Marked” is written in a manner that before you realize it you have been swept into the night as a quiet observer, no longer reading the novel, but living the days right along with the characters.
If one could truly become a fledgling (a young vampire in training) this is exactly where I would want to be right along with the primary character Zoey Redbird. Along with her new-found friends an adventure that none had ever expected has begun, and we the reader are graced enough to be allowed to come along.
From the very beginning, you can tell that the spunky and spirited Zoey is destined to change the world around her, whether she is ready for the ride of her life or not. The fact that the goddess has chosen her to have a special mission, to be unique, to be 100% different is no real shock.
The only bad spot in the entire book was when it came time for the pages to begin to run thin, as you already know that there is to be a feeling of sadness and loss as the new home you had found is no more, that you are at the mercy of the writers to be allowed to once again return to your new home and friends.
