Marked

Marked by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast

This is one of those books that will grab your interest on the very first page.  It tells the story of Zoey Redbird, who lives in a world that’s always had vampires.  When she finds herself “Marked”  by an exotic tatoo to become a vampyre, her whole world changes because now all her friends are afraid of her, and she has to transfer to the House of Night, a vampyre-in-training boarding school.  Life there is fast paced, with  Zoey  making new friends with the other fledging vamps, getting used to her new and strange classes (Vampyre Sociology), meeting the super hot Erik, and clashing with the two-faced Aphrodite, head of the exclusive Dark Daughters sorority.  The story moves on at a frantic pace, with each episode leading to the next, wivh enough uncertainty about the outcomes to keep the readers on the edge of  their seats.  I couldn’t put this book down and finished it in less than two  days.  I’ve ordered the entire series for the library; be sure to come by and check them out.

Here’s a book trailer you can look at from home.

Not all of those who are chosen do. It’s tough to begin a new life, away from her parents and friends, and on top of that, Zoey finds she is no average fledgling. She has been Marked as special by the vampire Goddess, Nyx. But 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 club, 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 vampire friends.  We also own this in Spanish.
