House Of Night (series)
House of Night is a series of vampire-themed fantasy novels by American author P. C. Cast and her daughter Kristin Cast. It follows the adventures of Zoey Redbird, a sixteen-year-old girl who has just become a "fledgling vampyre" and is required to attend the House of Night boarding school in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The series has been on the New York Times Best Seller list for 63 weeks and there are over seven million copies in print in North America alone. The sixth novel, Tempted, which went on sale on October 27, 2009 with a first printing of a million copies, entered the USA Today bestseller list that week at #1. In January, 2010, Gezeichnet, a German translation of Marked, reached the #1 spot on the Der Spiegel bestseller list. The series has so far sold more than ten million books in 39 countries.
Burned was released on April 27, 2010, and like Tempted, it entered the USA Today bestseller list that week at #1. Awakened, released in January, 2011, also entered the list at #1.

Famous quotes containing the words house and/or night:
“For it was not an enemy that reproached me; then I could have borne it: neither was it he that hated me that did magnify himself against me; then I would have hid myself from him:
But it was thou, a man mine equal, my guide, and mine acquaintance.
We took sweet counsel together, and walked unto the house of God in company.”
—Bible: Hebrew Psalm LV (l. LV, 1214)
“In every landscape, the point of astonishment is the meeting of the sky and the earth, and that is seen from the first hillock as well as from the top of the Alleghanies. The stars at night stoop down over the brownest, homeliest common, with all the spiritual magnificence which they shed on the Campagna, or on the marble deserts of Egypt.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
