These stories are surreal, yet shockingly accurate when it comes to teenagers and their lives." --TeensReadToo.com (5 stars) on Hunted "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!" --Romantic Times (4.5 stars) on Chosen "This highly addicting series offers a unique twist on the standard vampyre story....These books will have the reader laughing hysterically and sobbing unreservedly -sometimes all at once." --VOYA on Marked and Betrayed "Marked is one of the best coming of age stories to come out of Oklahoma since S. E. Hinton's The Outsiders. It teaches about the beauty of being a social outcast, friendship, and finding your own inner spirituality." --The Beltane Papers "Readers will identify with many of the characters, especially the protagonist." --Library Journal on Marked
