I really like these books but I've noticed that there are alot of typing erros. I might not be one for spelling corectly but I think that if a book is published it should have corect spelling heres some of the stuff I found
"vil"= Eval page 115 in the book chosen
"the" that page 116 in the book chosen
there are other words like this and even though I like the books I strongly think that it's inprofecinal and for me not spelling well I can still katch these typos and I'm not a wrighter but when I right poems I reread everything. It just makes P.C Cast and Kristin cast seem ingronat.

I really loved this book! I was hooked after the first one Marked and I read the other 7 that have came out all in 2 months! I can't wait for the next one to come out in October. I really want to read more books by P.C. Cast!

This book was the one that got me hooked on this series. it was amazing, packed with wonderful, lovable character. Once i started reading this book i couldn't put it down. the farther in the book i got the more i wanted to know about these characters lives, the first book ended to soon but thankfully there was more books to the series and they where just as engaging as the first. The characters where well done and had many demotions to them, the plot was wonderful in the way it was done and thought out. All and all this book as well as this series will not disappoint those looking for a little adventure.

"Publishers Weekly Review"
by Publishers Weekly,
"Cast, best known for her adult fantasy romance titles, enlists the help of 19-year-old daughter Kristin for her first YA book, a teen vampire melodrama that tries a bit too hard to be cool. Zoey Montgomery is 'Marked' by a 'vampyre tracker' while at school one day, meaning that she too, will become such a creature. Vampirism is an accepted fact of life in this world, but her distant mother and clueless, Christian stepfather don't understand, so she flees to her beloved Grandma Redbird's home. After a frightening encounter with the vampire goddess Nyx, Zoey awakens at the House of Night, a surprisingly dull school with all the usual problems and petty squabbles found in the 'normal' world. Girls in this vampire kingdom aren't that different from any other teen milieu: there are fashionista snobs and there are country music fans who have Kenny Chesney posters over their beds. Zoey quickly finds herself running afoul of the former and making friends with the latter. Aphrodite, leader of a group of girls called the Dark Daughters, distrusts Zoey and is jealous of the unusual mark she bears; Zoey learns that the popular girl is using her position for illicit purposes, leading to a power play and ultimately a showdown. There are points of interest along the way-young vampires can die at any moment if their bodies 'reject the Change' and Zoey struggles with early-onset bloodlust-but too much time is spent on endless teen-speak conversations and winking asides to the reader. Ages 13-up." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
by Gena Showalter, author of MTVs Oh My Goth,
“From the moment I stuck my face in this book it hooked me! Totally awesome new take on vampires! Marked is hot and dark and funny. It rocks!”
by The Beltane Papers,
“Marked is one of the best coming of age stories to come out of Oklahoma since S. E. Hinton's The Outsiders. It teaches about the beauty of being a social outcast, friendship, and finding your own inner spirituality.”
by MaryJanice Davidson, New York Times best-selling author of the Undead series,
“Cast reeled me in from paragraph one. I snorted and giggled through the whole thing, and devoured it in one sitting.”
by School Library Journal,
"Readers will identify with many of the characters, especially the protagonist. The story moves quickly...and purposely leaves many unresolved issues."
JUST BECAUSE YOU WORK FOR THE DEAD DOESNT MEAN YOU WANT TO JOIN THEM.
Drew has just started her second year on the Isle of Night, and the weather isnt the only thing changing drastically. She has ascended to the rank of Initiate. Shes also found an intimate love in the handsome vampire Carden. But most important, she no longer dreams of escape. She dreams of vengeance.
Her friend Emma was brutally wounded by the savage vampire Alcántara and may have been taken to the dreaded castle, from which none of the living returns. With so many different stories from so many people with so many of their own deceits and machinations, Drew cant be sure of anything—except that she must find a way into the castle to discover the truth and take down Alcántara once and for all.
But Drew isnt the only one out for revenge. Someone very dangerous on the island is also out for blood .
Enter the dark, magical world of The House of Night, a world very much like our own, except here vampyres have always existed. Sixteen-year-old Zoey Redbird has just been Marked as a fledgling vampyre and joins the House of Night, a school where she will train to become an adult vampire. That is, if she makes it through the Change--and not all of those who are Marked do. It sucks to begin a new life, especially away from her friends, and on top of that, Zoey is no average fledgling. She has been chosen as special by the vampyre Goddess Nyx. Zoey discovers she has amazing powers, but along with her powers come bloodlust and an unfortunate ability to Imprint her human ex-boyfriend. To add to her stress, she is not the only fledgling at the House of Night with special powers: When she discovers that the leader of the Dark Daughters, the school's most elite group, is misusing her Goddess-given gifts, Zoey must look deep within herself for the courage to embrace her destiny--with a little help from her new vampyre friends.
