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. There, she learns of the city’s dark underbelly, ruled by powerful black magic. As Lenobia experiences her first love – and loss – and discovers a passion for horses to sustain her, she must come face-to-face with Darkness itself. And she may not escape without scars.-Goodreads.com
REViEW: I have to admit, these little House of Night novellas intrigue me much more than the regualr novels. These books stay to the point and are interesting and fresh. In Lenobia's Vow, I was able to get a new view on Lenobia, the horse-riding instructor. I always liked her character in the novels and this book just made me love her even more! The plot focused on her struggles of trying to get away from the impure bishop, while pretending to be someone else. This book sort of bored me at first, but the pace picked up and didn't slow down till the very end! The plot was really condesed for the Casts, but I loved it! The characters were well done. Lenobia was a very strong, determined main protagonist. I really enjoyed getting to know her. I absolutely loved watching her fall in love with Martin. I spent the majority of this book rooting for their relationship to last. Martin was such a sweet, loving guy. I really wish the Bishop wasn't there. He was cruel and decietful and I just really hated him. I didn't want him to mess with Lenobia. She's too nice for that. The only thing he was good for was creating drama, which he did very easily. Then again, where would this book be without conflict? The ending made me scream and it made me cry. I wanted to bang my head off a wall because I hated the way it ended. It really couldn't have ended any differently though. I just felt so sad for Lenobia and wanted to rip the Bishop to shreds. I always like a book that makes me feel such an array of emotions! My Favorite Part: Martin and Lenobia's relationship!
ALL: Do I recommend this book? Yes, it is much better then the House of Night series. Will I be reading the next book? I have too, these are good little books! Thanks for reading! Please follow me on Twitter and Facebook! (Go to Contact Me page for more details!)
