Enter the dark, magical world of the House of Night, a world very much like our own, except here vampyres have always existed. One minute, sixteen-year-old Lauren Jauregui is a normal teenager dealing with everyday high school stress. The next, she's Marked as a fledging vampyre, forcing her to leave her ordinary life behind and join the House of Night, a boarding school where she will train to become an adult vampyre. That is, if she makes it through the Change and not all of those who are Marked do. It sucks to begin a new life, especially away from her friends and on top that, Lauren is no average fledging. She has been chosen as special by the vampyre Goddess, Nyx. Lauren discovers she has amazing powers, but along with her powers come bloodlust and an unfortunate ability to Imprint with her human ex-boyfriend, who just doesn't know how to take no for an answer. To add to her stress, she is not the only fledging with special power.
