i thought this book was a buildup for thigns to come. it was not as fast paced as the first two and probably only took place over the course of two days. it was slightly disappointing compared to the other two and had you wondering only two questions..when will they forgive her and is she going to give up on guys? it was an okay book that could probably keep one busy for an hour or three but nothing to major.

House of Night:  Marked is a fun little romp into such a popular genre right now.  Vampire books are good and plenty right now, but this series seems to be standing out a little more than the others.   The first in the series, it grabs you quickly with it's snarky and chatty dialogue.  It's a quick and easy read with like-able and unlike-able characters that continue in a series.  I recommend this book for a mature 12 and up.  There are some scenes of sexuality and language is a little racy for younger teens.  All in all, it's a fun read.

Zoey is having a normal day at school, chatting with her best friend Kayla and avoiding her boyfriend Heath, until she gets marked by a vampire. Not only is she an outcast with Kayla once she is marked, but her mom and step-loser (as she likes to call him) are calling in the prayer groups. Zoey does not want to be a part of that, so she sneaks out. Now she gets to escape her life to live at the House of Night in Tulsa. Her new roommate, Stevie Rae, is a Kenny Chesney-obsessed, country girl. But Stevie Rae and all of her friends accept Zoey, even though her Mark is totally different from everyone else. Then you also have your typical mean girl, who in this book, happens to be Aphrodite. Aphrodite is head of an exclusive group in the school called Dark Daughters. Aphrodite cannot stand the competition that she feels Zoey produces. Not to mention that Aphrodite's ex-boyfriend is interested in Zoey. This school is plentiful of drama; but the question is, can Zoey live up to the challenge?

This book started a little slow. There were parts I enjoyed it, especially the parts with Aphrodite and Zoey; I loved the fierce competition. But other parts dragged to me. I skipped some parts because they were boring me to tears. However, I'm not giving up on them yet; I'm still going to read the others in the series, if for no other reason than to find out what happens. It will not be one of my top priorities, so if you're looking for the others in the series to be reviewed, you'll be waiting a while. If you're looking for a vampire book to pass the time, I would pick this one up. Perhaps you will not be as disappointed.
