PostSubject: About Marked   Sun Sep 26, 2010 10:40 pm

Sixteen-year old Zoey Montgomery gets "Marked" at school by an adult vampyre one day and has to go to the House of Night, a school for fledglings and leave her family and friends behind. When Zoey arrives at the House of Night, She changes her last name to her Indian Last name (The same as her grandma's)-Redbird. She is instantly seen as an anomaly because her mark (a crescent moon on her forehead which with normal fledglings should only be an outline) had been filled in. At school she meets Stevie Rae , who introduces her to her friends- the 'Twins' Shaunee and Erin, who are so alike they nickname each other this, though they are completely different physically, and Damien, an intelligent, good-looking, and gay fledgling. After attending her first school ritual in Nyx's Temple, Zoey realizes that she has been given an affinity for all 5 elements: Air, Earth, Water, Fire and Spirit, which is greatly unheard of in a vampyre, let alone a fledgling.

She also meets Aphrodite, a mean, selfish bully who is leader of a traditional student organization called the Dark Daughters. Aphrodite's boyfriend is Erik Night, whom Zoey is doted to. She comes across Aphrodite giving Erik a blow job and is panicked and embarrassed, rushing off. The same night she arrives, she sees a strange figure that highly resembled a fledgling named Elizabeth, who had earlier that day (night) rejected the Change and died. Elizabeth vanishes and her best friend Kayla and her 'almost-boyfriend' (at this point now being her 'ex-almost-boyfriend') Heath show up at the house of Night to 'break her out'. She tries to send them away but then realizes Kayla is only there to try to seduce Heath. Although she insists they are no longer an item, she feels possessive of Heath, and scares Kayla away. Heath cuts himself accidentally, and Zoey is drawn to his blood, another strange trait for a mere fledgling to possess. She drinks some, and so she and Heath Imprint. Despite this, later on in the novel, Zoey and Erik become a couple. Aphrodite has also been gifted with an affinity, but not for an element, instead Aphrodite has visions of future tragic disasters. However, though it's well known she has these visions, when she has one she hides it, and although it is not specifically mentioned, it is suggested she has had many visions in which many have died and she has allowed them to. She lords her power over the school and treats other fledglings she doesn't see as worthy, horribly. She instantly sees Zoey as a threat, due to the fuss being made about her. Seeing just how much trouble she was really causing, Zoey realizes she must bring Aphrodite down, even if that means taking over her position as leader of the Dark Daughters, which is a position she doesn't want to be, after already suffering such a drama in her life.

Zoey's chance comes during the Dark Daughters celebration of Samhain , where Aphrodite accidentally summons evil spirits. Heath arrives and is attacked by the evil vampyre spirits that crave fresh human blood. Erik, a Dark son who has shown interest in Zoey, attempts to save Heath as Zoey and her friends cast a circle to send the spirits to where they were summoned from. Zoey is the post of leader of the Dark Daughters from Neferet, the High Priestess of Nyx, as a reward for her quick thinking and bravery. Given as an addition, Nyx blesses Zoey by adding additions tattoos to her Mark and shoulders, something unheard of even for full-fledged vampyres.
