In early 19th century England, long before he’s a professor at the Tulsa House of Night, Bryan Lank
I never really connected with Bryan "Dragon" Lankford in the full length novels, he seems distant, cold and more then a little aloof.
Except ,of course, to Anastasia.
Then I read this novella and I saw him in a whole new light.
While at the beginning he is an arrogant, spoiled son of an English Earl, that soon changes. As his world comes crashing down, he finds out the hard way that he is not near as important as he thought he was.
Anastasia was a Quaker until she was Marked by Nyx. A c...more
My (High!) Opinion : So, this is the first book in the House of Night Novellas series, which is a story set in the the Cast's House of Night world, which is awesome.
First, let me say I really like the HoN (House of Night) series by the Casts. And i was really excited when my library contacted me to say this book had arrived in my account. I almost screamed. Okay, maybe not, but I was really happy. I had rea...more

It was a good novella because not only did it show how they met and give you their backstory it also gave a little insight into how decisions they made back then contributed to the mass destruction of the school and possibly...more
Uslubu iyiydi,hikayeyide sevdim değişik bir havası vardı ve yazarların önceki kitaplarndaki gibi saçmalıklar ve sırf sayfa sayısı artsın diye yapılmış şişirmeler yoktu. Ancak yinede ikilinin çabuk aşık olduklarını ve ejderhanın bir anda değiştiğini düşünüyorum...
Sonunun iyi bitmesini isterdim,mutlaka okunması gerekmez ama gece evinden daha güzeldi kesinlikle,zoey artık baydı...

Dragon's Oath is the first of the House of Night novellas spin-off series, which focuses on Dragon's first meeting with Anastasia.
The beginning of the book opens with the conclusion of Awakened following Jacks funeral and Rephaim's transformation from Raven Mocker to human. Dragon sits by Jack's funeral pyre and reminisces about his first meeting with Anastasia. He pulls out a locket and opens it, but the wind lifts the last of her hair inside and carries it over to the pyre. This...more
Dragons Schwur beginnt mit unsäglicher Trauer und endet mit Trauer, einem neuen Schwur und unbeschreiblicher Wut. Die ersten paar Seiten und die letzten spielen in der Gegenwart und leider habe ich das Gefühl total gespoilert worden zu sein, weshalb ich auch empfehle die House of Night Reihe erstmal so weit zu lesen wie sie erschienen ist, bevor man sich an dieses Novella wagt, ansonsten erlebt man eine unschöne Überraschung. Bei mi...more

I started reading it... last year, but It didn't attract me that much. And today, and I must admit that I read it out of boredom, I cheked my 'to read' folder and decided to star over again, just because it was a short story and I wouldn't finish today a 300 pages book, not starting it at eight p.m.
I must say that I enjoyed it.
This is the story of Dragon and Anastasia. He is an arrogant young warrior, and Anastasia is the rituals and spells young teache...more
However, because I'm a little OCD I find it very hard not to read every book in a series, spin-off, prequels and novellas included. And so I sat down to read this on my Kindle which I had abandoned to a dusty...more

The House of Night series is what got me into YA and made me want to write my own book. Don't get me wrong -- I've wanted to write for ages -- but the series made me realize something: humans can know about magic if I want them to. Why am I telling you this? Because you deserve to know that this series has a special place in my heart; that could mean I'm a little biased.
This review is short, but so is this book. I hope that does not mislead anyone regardin...more
Dragon’s Oath by PC and Kristin Cast is set in nineteenth century England and takes a look at Bryan (Dragon) Lankford’s life before he became the Tulsa House of Night’s fencing instructor.

For those of you who have read the HON books, this is Dragon and Anastasia's story. For those of you who haven't read the series...lucky you.
It's got all of the usual House of Night mumbo-jumbo in it. It reads like a wiccan coca-cola commercial. If the whole world could just get together and hold hands, then everything will be ok! Whatever.

"In early nineteenth century England, long before he's a professor at the Tulsa House of Night, Bryan Lankford is a troublesome yet talented human teen who thinks he can get away with anything...until his father, a wealthy nobleman, has finally had enough, and banishes him to America. When Bryan is Marke...more
I've read worse. At least this was relatively short- though not short enough.
All I could think about was the term 'fluffy bunny,' which is a "pejorative expression used since at least 2001 in Wicca (and in Neopaganism generally) to refer to adherents of t...more
Combined with beautiful illustrations at the start of every chapter, this story will leave the reader anxiously awaiting the next installment of the series, Destined, which comes out November 2011.
Dragon Lankford wasn’t always an instructor at the House of Night. Once he was a student: young, talented and in love. But the mistake that cost him everything might be the key to helping Zoey and the rest of the vampyres in their fight against darkness…
The first House of Night novella from bestsel...more
