Official Summary: 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 vampyre. That is, if she makes it though the Change–and not all 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 fledging 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 misused her Goddess-given gifts, Zoey must look deep within herself for the courage to embrace her destiny–with a little help from her friends.
Alternate Summary: A raging Sue is granted magical powers from a mother goddess archtype for no real reason and proceeds to go to vampire Hogwarts to reinact Mean Girls with more preaching and less humor.
