  8. 8. About The Books…<br />I like these books because they are always full of adventure and mystery, and in every new book there seems to be a brand new character to get to know. There is a twist and turn at every page and I recommend these books to any teenage girl who likes reading about Vampire Romance.<br />The first book, Marked, is about a teenager called Zoey Redbird, who gets ‘Marked’ AKA turned into a Vampire by a tracker. She gets enrolled into the Tulsa House of Night and she starts to progress into a fully Fledged Vampire at an alarming rate. Her crescent outline tattoo on her forehead, which every new vampire gets, fills in within the first week, which is highly unusual. Then at the Full Moon Ritual, Zoey feels an affinity for all five of the elements, Air, Water, Fire, Earth and Spirit. Which has never happened in all of vampire history. So she has to get used to her new powers, and all the unwanted attention as she becomes leader of the Dark Daughters, and takes over the place of training to become the next High Priestess. But then everything starts to wrong as quickly as it was starting to become right…<br />
