    PandorasRequiem: Same flavor *grin* as these books in this series. If you like this series, you will also most likely "Blue Bloods" by Melissa De La Cruz. Private "Vampire Finishing School": narrated by the outcast who has problems fitting into her new surroundings, her new attraction to blood and the Changes in her body. But, she has good friends who stand by her and attracts the eye of a quite fetching young man. Good read, same type of genre. :)… (more)

My best friend loves this series, so we went on vacation and I read it on the drive there so two hours this was great!
I loved this book. The story is about Zoey Redbird who is Marked as a vampyre fledgling. She has to leave her normal high school and transfer to the House of Night a private school for forming vampyres. She has a crappy family who doesn't support her and has to adapt not only to the Change but also a new school and friends.

This was a great book, the characters are entertaining and relate-able(even though they are vampyre). The story was good and left room for more to happen (I know it is a series and i am super excited about that). The way that Zoey interacts with others is angst-y and kind of teenage dramatic, but it works. ( )

It was an interesting story, I liked the plot and I love the characters. It does seem kind of predictable at times (in terms of which character is going to turn out to be evil and which is just misunderstood). I also did not like the writing at all. Too much "Stevie said this, Damien said this, Erin said this", it got really annoying. So overall it's an interesting story and I really like the mystery element to it, I just really don't like the writing style. ( )

I definitely DID NOT understand half the things going on this book the first time i read it - i was FAR to young lol. I may now be a little too old, but it was a fun read, and i shameless bought the next few books. ( )

Generally very well written.
But the book becomes increasingly lecturing and prescriptive in the worst way.
Initially, this really wasn't a problem at all but by the end, this might as well have been a wishlist by a mother to her daughter on how to behave.
Don't get me wrong, apart from this one point I would have eaten this up as a teenager and I could have enjoyed it as the adult am I now as well.
But this is not something happening in isolated scenes meant to have some sort of learning outcome. It is tightly woven through everything and it couldn't be less subtle. ( )

Epigraph
From Hesiod's poem to Nyx, the Greek personification of night:

"There also stands the gloomy house of Night;
ghastly clouds shroud it in darkness.
Before it Atlas stands erect and on his head
and unwearying arms firmly supports the broad sky,
where Night and Day cross a bronze threshold
and then come close and greet each other."


(Hesiod, Theogony, 744 ᶠᶠ∙)
Dedication
For our wonderful agent, Meredith Bernstein, who said the three magic words: vampyre finishing school. We heart you!
First words
Just when I thought my day couldn't get any worse I saw the dead guy standing next to my locker.
Quotations
I've found that the way a person feels about cats - and the way they feel about him or her in return - is usually an excellent gauge by which to measure a person's character.
Cats chose us; we don't own them.
(pg. 43)

Beautiful, see the cloud, the cloud appear.
Beautiful, see the rain, the rain draw near...
(pg. 43)

Who spoke?
The little corn ear,
High on top of the stalk...
