Fanging Around with the Undead...

The "Other" Popular Vampire Series
Mother-daughter author team P.C. and Kristin Cast may not have yet reached Stephenie Meyer's exalted status but their House of Night series is a winner in its own right. Well over 5 million copies in print is nothing to sneeze at...

Read the books in order (Marked, Betrayed, Chosen, Untamed, Hunted and the latest, Tempted) and follow main character, 16 year-old Zoe Redbird, as she is "marked" and undergoes the "change" from old life to new. Great pop-culture references, laugh out loud humor, and good writing about finding a moral compass make the series well worth your time. The vampire backdrop adds icing to the popular fiction cake.
