Review: So, now I’m out of my teens I usually avoid YA Supernatural novels (Don’t get wrong, I loved Twilight.) but I’d picked up Marked on holiday last year at a borrow and swap library. It is the first novel in the House of Night series, and I found it different to delve into something I wouldn’t usually buy myself.
When Zoey Montgomery gets Marked, she becomes Zoey Redbird, moves to the House of Night, a vampyre finishing school- and prepares to become a fledgling vampyre. However, her Mark is different to her classmates, it’s filled in. Why? What makes her so special? It makes her feel like a freak show because it catches the attention of everyone else. Eventually, Zoey eventually learns to accept her Mark is a gift from the Goddess Nyx. Quite literally.
Of course I found this book slightly….annoying in places. This was down to many reasons: Zoey’s stupid ex, Aphrodite the school bitch, who whined about the littlest of things, the unexplained ghosts and Zoey’s sudden power. However, this is what I expected from this genre of YA novel.
I enjoyed it, but I’m unsure if I’ll acquire the rest of the novels in the series. If anyone would recommend them, please let me know what you thought!
I enjoyed it, but it wasn’t my favourite.
