Teenage issues can seem like life or death, but in this haunting series, House of Night, that's really the case. Through Zoey's eyes readers are led into a world that's getting more complicated by the minute, where friends and enemies can switch positions in a heartbeat. The remarkable Cast duo continues to build a world that you won't soon forget!

Life has thrown fledgling vampyre Zoey Redbird some serious curves. After discovering that her mentor, the high priestess Neferet, is evil and responsible for turning Zoey's best friend into an undead with serious blood issues, Zoey realizes that she must keep this a secret from her friends, since Neferet can read their minds. Then there's the small issue of Zoey having romantic feelings for not one but three different males. Teenage hormones and bloodlust are a recipe for disaster.

When a teacher is brutally murdered and the human People of the Faith are the prime suspects, Zoey fears that her nasty stepfather may be involved. Being the chosen of the goddess Nyx is not easy ... will Zoey have the stamina and courage to make the right decisions? (ST. MARTIN'S GRIFFIN, Mar., 320 pp., $8.95)
