It is a teen book – so if you’re a mature adult who can’t handle flashbacks from teendom – don’t bother. But if you like a decent story line, interesting characters and a cool adventure and concept – this series could be for you.
Zoey is a teen girl who lives with her highly annoying mother (read new wacko hubby…) and the step dad who is a total religious freakazoid. She is miserable and takes her happiness where she can get it – with her friends at school and a wonderful, spiritual grandmother. Out of the blue she gets Marked, meaning a vampyre seeks her out and marks her for the change into vampyre. The story gets more interesting from here and I liked it enough to go off and find the next book in the series.
