It was interesting to know Lenobia's backstory and all, BUT it was so SAPPY.
It was very Historical romance style, with that dashing young buff man who is sadly unattainable but yet you love him so much you are willing to go over racial taboos of your century (He's half cuban) and your obstacle is a pervertic pedophiliac bishop who wants you so badly we actually get to know his deep deep obsess...more
I actually decided to read the series again after reading the first few pages of Hidden and realizing I should probably read this novella...more

On top of that I grew up around horses and a few months ago was helping care for a black Percheron gelding. He was so gorgeous and unbelievably sweet. At 18 1/2 hands he towered over me and could ea...more
I always liked Lenobia as a character, always calm but with a fierce presence, someone Zoey can talk to, ask for help. But i was curious as to find out more about her.
These are only novellas so they are really short (140 pages) so I managaed to read it quickly.
Lenobia is an illegitimate daughter of a Baron, working more like a servant in his house, but when his da...more
“Lenobia’s Vow” by P.C. and Kristin Cast is the very poignant tale of Lenobia Whitehall, the mixed race illegitimate daughter of the Baron of Bouillon. An opportunity arises that allows her to escape her subservient and powerless position and reluctantly substitute for her legitimate half-sister on a trip across the ocean to New Orleans to...more
I am a BIG fan of the House of Night series so was pleased to get this book to review.
This book is Lenobia’s story of before and when she was marked. It was lovely to be able to read a background on Lenobia and her past as she was in the ninth HON book “Destined” quite a bit. Lenobia has to board a ship for New Orleans under someone else’s name, on this ship she has to hide from an evil bishop who actually knows she isn’t who she is pretending to be. While on she meets a c...more

It's 1788 and Lenobia is the bastard daughter of a baron--as people like to remind her. When an odd opportunity arises, her mother ships her off to New Orleans, by pretending she's someone else. Lenobia doesn't want to leave her mother behind, but when she reaches the ship that will take her to the New World, she starts to fee...more
Le Serment De Lenobia est une nouvelle très sympathique, vraiment pas prise de tête, et qui nous permet de revisiter sous un nouvel angle certains personnages cultes de la saga La Maison De La Nuit. Difficile malgré tout d'attribuer une excellente note à ce tout petit livre, car l'action n'est pas vraiment au rendez-vous, et l'histoire n'est tout simplement pas plus prenante que ça. C'est une lecture ultra rapide qui ne pose aucun problème et qui nous perm...more

Time really do travel fast and now as I go on with my life, I wake up and see that one of the series I'm following has another new installment. I remember reviewing about the previous house of night book "Destined" last October and it made such a good impression that I want to read more. Imagine my excitement when I saw "Lenobia's Vow" to be released soon.
Fast forward to a few months, I just finished reading "Lenobia's Vow" and it was an interesting story but, it could've be...more
Onto the story, I really like that this novella is about how Lenobia become House of Night fledgling and eventually a fully changed vampire. It made me wonder what her...more
I absolutely detest the house of the night books, and I honestly don't rhink I'm going to read the next installment.
However, I actually enjoyed reading this book. It wasn't the best book I ever read, and it was certainly a very short read (within a few hours, might I add), but it was still well written.
Lenobia is far from self centered (like a certain main chara...more
I was excited to see Lenobia would be the next in the novellas. She is one of the most intriguing characters in the House of Night. I've always thought her class would be a fun one to take part in. This second novella in the series is a great read, so far...more
In Lenobia's Vow, we see Lenobia's past and the events that eventually brought her to the House of Night and Nyx. Lenobia's story is full of hopefulness, terror, and heartbreak.
(SPOILERS)We see the hope of a young woman wanting to find love and happiness in the New World; but that hope is threatened by an evil man, steeped in Darkness, stalking her every move. But Lenobia finds a Light in that Darkness that keeps her hope from burning out...more
and i can honestly say that this one blew my mind by how good it was.
it jumped head first into the story, relating to all the little hints we get in DESTINED of Lenobia's past. you kinda get the story of what went on from the hints, but this novella went BEYOND all that.
