Okay, I know technically what it is the cash cow...it's ridiculous having graphic novels for these books. Okay, there are exceptions. But more often than not it's the same story regurgitated in comic book form. Except unlike real comic books, usually the artwork is subpar and the story is ass. This is no exception. Though I will give it to the Casts they try not to regurgitate the entire thing. But wait that might not be such a good thing considering the story we get is equivalent to a really bad kids show. You know, those kid shows where little Precious Polly (your poor defenseless kid) learns apparently some big life lessons that you later have to brainwash out their head by buying them a cupcake or letting them watch Die Hard. Those sorts of lessons. Here we learn how to be a good leader according to Nyx and I....well, still don't know how to be a leader. At least according to Nyx. I learned more from Andy Samberg about how to be a boss than from her. Oh, well. That's probably a good thing. I get what the Cast were trying to do though bastardize history, mythology, and every world culture while showing us why Zoey Redbird is a star. To be specific we spit on Norse mythology, Celtic history, The Odyssey, Cleopatra and Anthony, and the Amazons. Oh yeah, each of these compelling figures, unique mythologies, and timeless classics are destroyed by the Casts and Zoey Redbird. The rest of the story, is essentially parts of Marked and Betrayed blend together so that the Casts can buy themselves a house of Lake Texoma. I honestly though am not mad though. At least this book was done in one volume and despite the confusing bastardization of history its not as confusing as the written word of Cast. That being said the artists really screwed up here. Like with the Blue Bloods graphic novel the cover was fabulous looking. I just didn't understand why this sort of artwork couldn't continue throughout the rest of the book. Instead, we get these cartoonish looking drawing that are better suited for a low budget cartoon. And here's the thing other graphic novels are able to use decent artwork throughout the entire story. Why can't this one use the same style? Oh and speaking of styles, the artwork is slightly different when we get these historical flashbacks. And it's insulting. Just plain insulting. Why is it insulting? Cleopatra is freaking lilly white for one thing. The queen of the Nile looks like she should be living in Norway instead of Egypt. I just don't understand why it's that difficult to keep a historical character's ethnicity. Must we white wash everything? Also, it really annoyed me how all the "bad" characters (save for Aphrodite who really isn't bad) are made to look like hideous looking people. Pretty people can be awful people too Casts. And of course, the artists had to give everyone and their mother a miniskirt and flotation devices to boot. Seriously, there's no need to do that here. Or really anywhere in comics. Side note, is it just me or has anyone else wished one of those comic book vixens talked about getting a boob reduction job. Because there's no way its comfortable for them fighting crime. I can only imagine the back problems. Weight distribution people. Overall, I don't feel as vindictive as I do with the novels. But this was a complete waste of time and clearly a waste of money if I would've actually purchased it. Thankfully, I didn't. I merely came across it when I was looking for Hush at the library. Unfortunately, I did not come home with that book and instead came home with this POS.

Review: I received this for review from NetGalley and I guess I jumped the gun a little, I requested it because I really wanted to read the series but knew that I wouldn't be able to get my hands on it any time soon and figured this would be a good substitute. Well turns out someone actually gifted me the series this month, well the first 8 which is a lot of books, and after finishing reading this I realised I've probably read a bunch of spoilers. So now to my proper review, obviously as I haven't read anything else to do with this series it was interesting to see this different take on vampyre's, for starters they end up being marked and it takes a long time for the transition from fledgling to full blown vamp to be completed but could also end up rejecting the transition and dying at any time. With this being a graphic novel there is a lack of explanation into how the marking takes place or happens, there are a few hints here and there but not full detail into the process, you also get to see what happens when the transition fails which is pretty brutal. I liked the layout of the storyline too, how they visited each of the affinities individually so we get to meet some pretty big names in history and their alternate-vampyre related history. I do believe that when the story transfers to each of the history/affinity lessons are the more interesting parts but that isn't too hard to believe because they are long and obviously I have no connection to the characters. I think a downside to this graphic novel is that it's not 100% sure of its target audience, when the story is following Zoey and her friends I could easily believe its for a younger audience but some of the topics that are touched upon in the history sections are darker, brutal and graphic which could illustrate an older target audience, or at least one a little more maturer than the previous suggests and this led me to being a little confused at times, especially when some of the more darker things that happened were simply glossed over. Maybe I'm just picky? Maybe I can't judge properly without reading the series, who knows? One thing is for sure it got me desperate to pick up the main series a lot sooner than planned but I think I'll only continue with the graphic novel series if I adore the series with all my heart. It was a good read but I think I could appreciate it more with background knowledge. Recommend? I'd say read the series first.

    Rating: 4.5 I really loved this story and the idea that vampires are not bad, they have always been there just misunderstood. The only thing I didn't care of is that I missed out on what the book was about at first. It took me a few minutes to realize that if you want to understand what's going on with the characters you have to read the actually book.

    Zoey Redbird has exposed Aphrodite for her bullying ways. In result, she's taken Aphrodite's place as leader of the Dark Daughters. Leading up to her first meeting, she starts questioning if she's meant to be the leader. Nyx tasks here with learning five lessons so she can always be sure she will be good enough. I want to preface this by saying two things. I bought this four years ago and never read it because I found it hard to read on the kindle.

I also haven't really had the opportunity to read that many graphic novels because of lack of access and lack of confidence of reading them properly. I read this one via ComiXology. It was so easy to read. This isn't a review of the program though. This is a review of the book itself. I am probably biased here, but I really loved it. I love all things related to the House Of Night. It has to be one of my favorite series of all times hands down. There's a big part of me that wishes they would take each of the House Of Night novels and turn them into graphic novels. I do fully recommend this book. I give it a full five-star rating. I'll have to see if my mother and boyfriend will want to read it. The graphics were amazing and the storyline was great. I can't wait to read many other graphic novels now. I also strongly recommend reading the House Of Night series.

    There was one good thing about this book. And that was the cover. Not that I expected much from a comic version of a book, but... This was hardly recognizable. It's just 5 chapters, each chapter is Zoey learning a lesson from a story Damien reads from the Handbook. An occasional short flashback to explain something that happened because they started with book 2 and suddenly realized Oh, stuff happened in book 1, let's flashback. The focus is obviously on these stories and everything else is pushed There was one good thing about this book. And that was the cover. Not that I expected much from a comic version of a book, but...

The focus is obviously on these stories and everything else is pushed to the side. I didn't get this book to read about Cleopatra, or Circe. Silly me wanting to see how Zoey and co actually looked and interacted and got all their drama together. Well, it was not to be. All she did was talk to Aphrodite and kill a snake. Oh, and she has a brother now?? Since WHEN? And I like how the author made it sound like Nyx was plump in the book series (or at least had Zoey talk like Nyx was fat) and now she's a toothpick. So much for good roll models. They keep talking about Erik like he's a part of Zoey's life, and he's in maybe one or two panels. And even then he looks like a copy of Damien. In short, this comic reminded me of why I hate the series with such burning passion.

    Personally, I'm finding the current trend of giving popular books a graphic novel treatment to be a bit played out. But the one thing this particular series-turned-comic has going for it is that it's a new story rather than a straight adaptation. Unfortunately, it suffers from a lot of inconsistency, especially in the art which vacillates between being confusing due to differing from the book descriptions to downright, well, awful and ugly.

The story itself is rather weak and incredibly forgettable. It also has some very obvious contradictions to the canon of the series proper, though, to be fair the books themselves have continuity issues aplenty. And while the writing is certainly less juvenile than the source material, at best it's just lackluster. If you're a diehard fan, you've likely devoured this ages ago. Otherwise, just borrow it . . . or skip it entirely.

    Not sure where to begin. Aphrodite is her normal slur-tossing spoiled self with insecurities galore. They stay strong to the fundamentals. Vampyres have to get permission to feed, the feeding is not painful but pleasurable and gentle on the senses. They have been hunted and hurt for a long time on account of what they are.

And Zoey is capable of learning each element. Seeing Stevie Rae, I both love how she looks and it does not match how I always saw her in the books, which might be good, as I always saw Stevie being of colour and she does die, and now realizing the cast is mostly Caucasian and Native American, it would not make sense for her to be that, but I'll always enjoy that mental image of her being less pale and being a bad ass. More colour representation is always a big draw for me. As is to be expected, the Reverend of Tulsa and his followers hate the vampyres. People of faith oppose the magic and the school, which is rather fun to see in art form. I've always had an issue with the way they came off as a teenager, but growing up and seeing the hatred towards LGBT and their protests I can now safely say how Zoey's stepfather is presented here is pretty on point. Zealous hatred and brainwashing is something vastly overlooked. Though this is not for faint of heart at all, the stories shown in this book are full of rape, sexism, suicide, death, hate, and more. It's a lot of raw imagery to take in and some might churn your guts to even behold. I'd say minus gore, a lot of the stories hit close to what Stephen King has pulled off in ways. Dark, depressing struggles and wholly terrible situations. Oh and sex, there is a loooot of sexual stuff in this book. One line I really love is Lady Circe saying, "Control your men so I don't have to." Seeing the history somehow pushed into a thin illustrated book like this is amazing. I know this is issues one through five in one book, and I hope there are more than this. P.C Cast has been doing a good job with this series for a long time now.

    Serving as a "Book 1.5," this has been a amazing addition to the whole series that makes us understand what kind of lessons learned Zoey between the first two books in order to become a real High Priestess in training. However, these are lessons we also should apply in daily life in order to be fair leaders and better humans, simple thigs we often forget used in a mythological setting, well-known tales we all remember but retold from the HoN world's perspective, which is amazing!

Still, I hated that it didn't respect Dragon's and Lenobia's marks, the importance of Heath and her family in Zoey's life, that Grandma Redbird never appeared... Details and major topics such as those should have been properly included and/or used, but that's not the case. Doesn't make it bad, but could have been better.

I kind of like how these women were turned into vampires. At first I didn't like the art. Zoey's face was wa too squared but then I got used to that. I still don't think it was the right one for this series but it was OK.

I understand that it is a graphic novel, but it has lost some of it's teachability now because of that. I thought the references to Greel Myhtology were awesome though!

    So... I didn't read the synopsis and thought this was a graphic novel adaptation of the first five books. Oops. It does have some reminders of things that happened, but it's focused on women that Nyx has given affinities to in the past and how Zoey learns from their stories. I really liked the art style, and although there were several artists working on different issues, everything is consistent and the characters are depicted perfectly and are easy to identify.

    The House of Night series is one of my all-time favorite series, and the graphic novel was just a lot different than the books. I know that the artists have some creative expression and the authors took some liberties with changing how things went down, I just wasn't a big fan. I'm also new to the graphic novel world so maybe it's partially me. It was nice to see some of my favorite characters brought to life through this art though!

    Legacy is best read after book one in the House of Night series. It gives additional background story which helps to understand the House of Night world. The drawings were really nicely done and because of the choosen format it was also really easy to read as e-book. The stories were sad, strong and full of hope all at the same time. The drawings made the perception even more intense. A beautiful collection of short stories.

    Hmm. Hmm. So, I'm not sure what to say about this book. I am glad it explores sexuality in the way it did, and the fact that it was banned is bizarre to me. Nothing in this book should cause concern, and its portrayal of het-sex is actually some of the better for teens I have read. I guess I am not a fan of the world building and story? I'm going to give the novels a try some day and see if it was a format issue, or something deeper. Hmm. Hmm. So, I'm not sure what to say about this book.

    This was an interesting foray into the Cast world of books. I picked this up at a local comic book store because I had heard of the author’s name, but I wasn’t familiar with her work. It was very cool learning about the magic system in the House of Night books. I look forward to continuing the series to learn more about these characters.

    I havent read the novels. I quite enjoyed this as a lite read. The reworking of ancient gods, goddesses and myths was quite fun. The life lessons somewhat corney. The art mainly godd with some gorgeous touches. I was a little saddened but not surprised by the over sexualisation of female characters and the propensity for groin length skirts that had to flare up at the back.

    Simply beautiful! So beyond excited to see the nerd herd brought to life and the many faces of Nyx... goddess worthy! Excellent choice in stories to draw out. I love the combination of history, mythology, and vampire lore. As a big fan of the HON series, this is a perfect addition for any fan.

    I picked this up not knowing it was based off a YA series. I did like the historical references. However it's hard to enjoy as a standalone because it feels like it references things from the book series that you don't know without reading it.

    I really liked how the authors took cleopatra, Odess, Hercules, freya, and the Amazon’s and applied them using vampyres. Where each one stood for one of the five elements. This was the first graphic novel that I have ever read. I thought it was very neat to see the story in addition to reading it!
