House Of Night; Marked.

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 through the Change-and not all of 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 on her human ex-boyfriend. To add to her stress, 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 group, 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 Thoughts:
I was expecting this book to be just another young adult book for angsty teenagers who hate their parents and then something about a vampire school where the kids probably drink, do drugs, and have tons of sex at their home away from home. You know like most young adult novels.
This book was so not that. The main character was smart and very down-to-earth. She could have been anyone that I know. I did not expect this book to mix so many interesting subjects. Cherokee Indians, cats, Greek mythology, ghosts, vampires, etc. So many interesting things fitting together so nicely. I really loved it and there wasn't a moment that I was bored or wishing a certain scene would just be over with.
