Until recently, Zoey Redbird was an average high-school student worrying about grades, boys, and breakouts. But priorities have a way of changing when you're Marked as a vampyre, enroll in the vampyre academy House of Night, and have to figure out a whole new social hierarchy, affinities for elemental magic, and physiological changes that make you crave blood Based on the...more

**This is a review of the 6 page preview provided by the publisher.

Well, ummm, uh, that is to say,



Oh, my. This book took my breath away. Literally. And not in the good way. I thought it would be funny in the same way you may laugh at a dog chasing it's tail. But this was just disturbing. I didn't like the artwork at all. It was creepy and the dialog didn't help. The heads of the characters looked a little too big for their bodies too. The preview showed a scene of Zoey and Aphrodite arguing abou...more

House of Night: The Graphic Novel. First question, why the hell would anyone waste their time, effort and money on a House of Night graphic novel? Milking the cow much? No, TOTAL FAIL.

However, even the awesome graphic work can't fix the absolutely terrible story, crappy dialogues and horrible characters that belong to P.C. Cast.

Oh, I’m sorry. I just noticed that I mentioned the word “story” in the same phrase as P.C. Cast. My bad, P.C. Cast doesn’t write stories, she writes down unimportant sou...more

Some of the artwork (the cutaways in between scenes) was beautiful, the rest was pretty basic and nothing to write home about.

The story...eh. It's HoN. That should say it all. Either you love the books, hate the books, or are like me and happen to still be reading them because you have issues and refuse to quit after being so far into the series, even though you pick up each new book with a grumble of frustration.

I only read the graphic because it was free. Unfortunately, I skimmed a good portio...more

This was my first introduction to P.C. Cast and I wasn't all that impressed. I realize that this is a graphic novel adaption of her books and that could have contributed to my bored state while reading this. I would be willing to read the actual first novel in her House of Night series to get a better feel for her as an author because I feel like this graphic novel had good plot potential.

I liked the flashbacks in the story, and that was about all I liked. The rest of the story didn't seem to h...more

As you can tell by the look of the blog, I’m a creature ruled by visuals! So it comes to no surprise that I enjoy a good graphic novel here and there – especially if it’s paranormal in nature.

Such is the case with House of Night: Legacy – a graphic novel inspired by the YA book series. Here are the first three titles.

The premise really hooked me in and the amazing graphic art did not disappoint. House of Night: Legacy tells the story of Zoe Redbird, a 16 year old chosen by the goddess Nyx to le...more

For somebody that has just recently gotten into picking up graphic novels, I have to say that I have become very particular about the ones I read.
I recently read the Wicked Lovely graphic novel and wanted more color and vibrancy to the look and pages of it, but it's a good and fun read. I also recently read the Vampire Academy Graphic Novel and felt there was not enough dialogue to go with the pictures, a lot of the character and world building was missing and for a short book way to much drama...more

I really enjoyed this new addition on the House of Night series and it truly did compliment the books. The stories were fun to read since it gives a new version of the ancient people we know so well. This book can stand alone from the books but I truly suggests the reader to be familiar with the house of night series before they read this because it will add to the effect of seeing the characters visually in a graphic novel.

I commend the dialogue in the novel b...more

Enjoyed the historical flashbacks, the teenage crap was just that. Crap. Rented it from my library so I got the whole experience.

Well...
That says enough doesn't it? As you can see I gave it 1 star, so yes, it kinda sucked. I love the House of Night series. Well, I love some parts of it. Some characters of it and definitely NOT Zoey. Just wanted to state that fact.
I did not enjoy this graphic novel, even though I really love graphic novels in general. I got it from Netgalley so I didn't get to see the art work in "real". But I really disliked the art. Some parts were good but other parts were just awful. Not my thing, no...more

I’ve read the House of Night series for years. I loved it when I first started reading it and slowly grew out of it, but I keep reading because I want to know what happens to these characters. I have yet to read the last book, but it’s on my shelf waiting. When I saw that a graphic novel was coming out, I decided to check it out. I expected it to be a graphic novel adaptation of the first book or something, but this is more like an ext...more

I had mixed feelings about this comic, which is based on a series of novels I haven't read.

At first I hated the teenage stereotyping of the main characters. Do American teenage girls really squabble like this about boys? Are they really this shallow and feckless?

Then I hated the misappropriation of some of the world's great mythic stories - Nyx, Persephone, Freya, et cetera.

But above all I disliked the way this story tames and domesticates the myth of the evil blood sucking vampire. This a more...more

Okay, so, you know how there are those books where you didn't think you'd like at all, but then you end up liking it, but it's not as good as you thought it be.

No?

I don't either.

But I've heard and read the reviews on Marked, the first book of the House of Night book series, and let me be the first to tell you that most of the ones that came from the awesome people I trust weren't good. So I don't know what I was thinking when I was requesting this off NetGalley.

There are some series that actually can benefit from the transition to graphic reinterpretation, while others simply cannot, no matter how good the artwork. I don't think House of Night counts as one of the better adaptations. The story covered in issue 1 takes place between events in the second novel of the House of Night series, Betrayed, so it assumes that the reader has already read the novels, and that's kind of an odd measure since it's a comic series intended to introduce/expand the franc...more

I almost prefer to be introduced to a series through graphic novel. It gives me a quick insight as to whether or not I will like the books. House of Night is one of those series that I was curious about but unable to fit into my reading schedule. This graphic novel was a great introduction.
Designed to accompany the books, this story gives a quick introduction to the characters for those who are unfamiliar with them and a deeper exploration into the mythology that runs through the series for thos...more

Nobody knows how much I love the house of night series! So when this came out, I went crazy. I thought it was good, but the story line is a mixed up puzzle. Nothing like th book, but good either way.

It's not fair to rate this because the quality of the ARC was so bad I couldn't even read it.

And yes, I wanted to. Because comics are awesome.

Background: House of Night #1 Graphic Novel follows Zoey Redbird like the House of Night series, however it is not a continuation of the series nor the first book of the series in graphic novel form.

Review: I enjoyed reading this graphic novel, but only because I have read most of the House of Night Series. Here we see Zoey with her full powers, not as she enters the House of Night school like the first book (which is what I thought this was going to be). We follow her through lessons about how...more

House of Night: Legacy by PC Cast, Kristin Cast, Kent Dalian and Joelle Jones is a young adult graphic novel that works as a companion to the House of Night series, which began with Marked. This graphic novel, collecting the five issues of a mini-series, will be released on July 17 2012. The series, and the graphic novel, centers on Zoey Redbird. She had been a normal high school student, worrying about fitting in and family issues, until the day she was marked as a vampire fledgling. This sets...more

I was finally approved for the giant 6 page preview arc! It only took 3 tries! Now I just find myself confused. Is this based on the first novel? Cuz of the 6 pages, 4 had nothing to do with Marked.

Just sayin'.

No, really. Where did the Norwegian vamps come from? I know it's been a good two years since I read Marked, but I don't think I would completely miss a whole set of vamps from another country.

Next.

I have a serious problem with purposely poor grammar. This is an example of the dumbing dow...more

The House of Night: Legacy By P.C. Cast, as an avid lover of the House of Night series I was very excited to get my hands on this graphic novel. I thought it was a wonderful idea. It gives you more of a sense of what the characters look like in the authors mind and it was different. I enjoyed the fact that this book is not just a re telling of the story in The House of Night series. This graphic novel I would say though you need too have the series before you pick up this book. I enjoyed it beca...more

(Note: This review only covers a 6 page preview of the comic.)


I wish I could recommend this higher, but I have to say that this preview left me lukewarm. The entire comic just seemed to be a jumbled mess and I can't quite say if this is because I only got a brief preview of the book or if it's because the comic itself is just lacking the addictive quality that the series holds.


First off, I'm highly disappointed with the artwork. When I first looked this series up via Netgalley there was this abs...more

House of Night is a series that I enjoy reading so when I saw this graphic novel up on netgalley I knew I had to give it a read. House of Night: Legacy is based on each of the five elements that the vampires can call upon. Zoey and her friends meet up each night to discuss Zoey taking charge of the Dark Daughters, to help her decide they read together from the fledgling handbook and learn more about each element.

Each element has a story behind and the novel flashbacks in history for each element...more

Okay so I'm not very familiar on how to review graphic novels but I'll just do the best I can! I have always been a huge fan of the House of Night series. (Yes I know, they are dragging them along but I still enjoy them.) I think the world is very fun to be surrounded in and when I heard that there was a graphic novel on NetGalley I just had to request it!

When I began reading this, I thought it was going to be very interesting and I was very excited about it! And then I saw the characters, don...more

This review is based on a compilation (books 1-5) that I received from the publisher via NetGalley.

Zoey Redbird is a fledgling vampyre that enters the House of Night. The House of Night is a school for vampyre fledglings to learn about their powers and everything they will need to know once they make the Change. Fledglings are teen vampyres that have not made the Change into adult vampyres, for quite a few it is a fatal process.

The artwork is expressive and beautiful. I was a little taken aback...more
