House of Night – better than Meyer (way better)

A quick post – I happened to pick up the first three volumes of the “House of Night” series, by PC and Kristin Cast. It’s teen vampire lit, set at a vampire finishing school called the House of Night (and, ahem, set in Tulsa, Oklahoma, of all places, but anyway…)

I’m impressed – it’s very well-written, teen angst and eye rolls included. It’s Mallory Towers meets Beverly Hills 90210 meets… Poppy Z Brite. Leagues better than Stephenie Meyer’s saccharine folly. And in this tale, the kids swear (!) and fool around. Like real high school.
