I previously had a different book blog, and I had a bunch of problems with the hosting company I used for the blog, and all of my content was deleted.  I managed to salvage some of my reviews from back then by compiling what  I wrote on Goodreads, Amazon, and Barnes and Nobles review sections.  See some that I have already posted here.

Goodreads Summary:

After a Vampire Tracker Marks her with a crescent moon on her forehead, 16-year-old Zoey Redbird enters the House of Night and learns that she is no average fledgling. She has been Marked as special by the vampyre Goddess Nyx and has affinities for all five elements: Air, Fire Water, Earth and Spirit. 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 mis-using 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 (or Nerd Herd, as Aphrodite calls them)

My Thoughts:

This book is about how Zoey gets marked to become a vampire by a tracker. She must enter the House of Night to be with the other fledgling vampires. She is blessed by the goddess Nyx, and has abilities none of the other fledglings have. This book was interesting, but not great. There is a typical blonde mean girl. Zoey is better than everyone else. It was ok.

Fave quote:

“Believe in yourself and you will find a way. But remember darkness does not always equate to evil just like light does not always bring good.”

“I’m going to remember this, I told myself sternly. I’m going to remember how awful they made me feel today. So when I’m scared and alone and whatever else is going to happen to me starts to happen, I’m going to remember that nothing about be as bad as being stuck here.Nothing.”

“Darkness does not always equate to evil, just as light does not always mean good.”
