Dragon's Oath: In the early 19th century, Dragon Lankford is a troublesome, yet talented human teen. When he is Marked onboard a ship to America, he is saved from sure death by a Son of Erebus who sees his potential. At the Kansas City House of Night, Dragon commences his own journey towards becoming a fierce fencing master—but when a threat emerges for the House of Night, Dragon is pulled into the middle. His uncanny fighting skills make him a powerful fledgling, but is he strong enough to ward off this new darkness? Will his choices save the woman he cares for—or destroy them all? Lenobia's Vow: In a small southern town at the turn of the century, young Lenobia is developing into a beautiful young woman with ideas of her own. But when she is Marked as a fledgling vampyre, her world turns upside down, and she is drawn to the musical streets of New Orleans.

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 are 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.

A tale of heated passion and deadly heartbreak starring warriors Hippolyte and Herakles forms the backdrop for Zoey Redbird's fifth and final lesson from the goddess Nyx. It's now time for Zoey to take all she's learned and make an inevitably controversial decision on how to lead the popular student group known as the Dark Daughters. Based on the best-selling series of novels from P. C. Cast and Kristin Cast! "In summation, this is a fun read. Forget what you know about the typical vampire and ignore all that _Twilight_ crap. Give it a try, it'll surprise you."Geeks of Doom
So...you'd think after banishing an immortal being and a fallen High Priestess, saving Stark's life, biting Heath, getting a headache from Erik, and almost dying, Zoey Redbird would catch a break. Sadly, a break is not in the House of Night school forecast for the High Priestess in training and her gang. Juggling three guys is anything but a stress reliever, especially when one of them is a sexy Warrior who is so into protecting Zoey that he can sense her emotions. Speaking of stress, the dark force lurking in the tunnels under the Tulsa Depot is spreading, and Zoey is beginning to believe Stevie Rae could be responsible for a lot more than a group of misfit red fledglings. Aphrodite's visions warn Zoey to stay away from Kalona and his dark allure, but they also show that it is Zoey who has the power to stop the evil immortal. Soon it becomes obvious that Zoey has no choice: if she doesn't go to Kalona he will exact a fiery vengeance on those closest to her. Will Zoey have the courage to chance losing her life, her heart, and her soul? Find out in the next spectacular installment in the House of Night Series, Tempted.
During the night, all the objects in the house wake up and cause an uproar, with illustrations for coloring the objects in each page of verse, plus a ball, 10 mice, and a cat.

A celebrated send-up of gothic literature, beautifully adapted into a dark, brooding, and oddly comical graphic novel. Somewhere in the night, a raven caws, an author's pen scratches, and thunder claps. The author wants to write fiction: stories about frail women in white nightgowns, mysterious bumps in the night, and the undead rising to collect old debts. But he keeps getting interrupted by the everyday annoyances of talking ravens, duels to the death, and his sinister butler. Shane Oakley beautifully illustrates New York Times bestselling author Neil Gaiman's satirical tale.
