Synopses & Reviews
Bloodlust and dark forces are at work at the House of Night. Fledgling vampyre Zoey Redbirds adventures at the school are about to take a mysterious turn. Those who appear to be friends are turning out to be enemies. And oddly enough, sworn enemies are also turning into friends. So begins the gripping third installment of this “highly addictive series” (Romantic Times), in which Zoeys mettle will be tested like never before. Her best friend, Stevie Rae, is undead and struggling to maintain a grip on her humanity. Zoey doesnt have a clue how to help her, but she does know that anything she and Stevie Rae discover must be kept secret from everyone else at the House of Night, where trust has become a rare commodity.
Speaking of rare: Zoey finds herself in the very unexpected and rare position of having three boyfriends. Mix a little bloodlust into the equation and the situation has the potential to spell social disaster. Just when it seems things couldnt get any tougher, vampyres start turning up dead. Really dead. It looks like the People of Faith, and Zoeys horrid step-father in particular, are tired of living side-by-side with vampyres. But, as Zoey and her friends so often find out, how things appear rarely reflects the truth…
Praise for The House of Night:
“Teenage issues can seem like life or death, but in this haunting series...thats really the case. Through Zoeys eyes readers are led into a world thats getting more complicated by the minute, where friends and enemies can switch positions in a heartbeat. The remarkable Cast duo continues to build a world that you wont soon forget!”-RT Book Reviews (4.5 stars) on Chosen
“These books will have the reader laughing hysterically and sobbing unreservedly—sometimes all at once.”-VOYA (on both Marked and Betrayed)
“Cast reeled me in from paragraph one. I…devoured it in one sitting.”-MaryJanice Davidson, New York Times bestselling author of the Undead series, on Marked
“Marked is one of the best coming of age stories to come out of Oklahoma since S. E. Hintons The Outsiders. It teaches about the beauty of being a social outcast, friendship, and finding your own inner spirituality.”-The Beltane Papers
