The House of Night series is set in a world very much like our own, except in 16-year-old Zoey Redbird's world, vampyres have always existed.  In this first book in the series, Zoey enters the House of Night, a school where, after having undergone the Change, she will train to become an adult vampire -- that is, if she makes it through the Change.  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 vampyre 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 vampyre friends.

My Review: I love this book. It was the first book I read when looking for a genre to read. Ever since this book I  have been reading other books just like this. This book flows just right and will have you turning the pages faster than you can. Zoey Redbird is chosen to join the House of Night. After being marked she noticed she wasnt like the others. Her Crescent was filled in completely. Any new members are marked with just the outline of a crescent moon. Being the first fledgling with a full crest means big things for Zoey Redbird.
