Blu Books – House of Night

*spoiler alerts included in this blog post!

This has got to be one of my absolute favorite series. I actually discovered it on a bender from Twilight, (yea, I love Twilight) the clerk at Barnes and Noble suggested I read this if  I liked vampire series.


Shout out to clerk whose name I forgot that was a spot on choice. House of Night is a 12 book series which features several spin off stand- alone novellas.



Rumors of a movie have been around for years but as of yet no new news has developed on that.

As far as stats go this book is a young adult fantasy fiction. Written by mother daughter writing duo P.C. and Kristin Cast.


The book offers a modified look on vampires adding special abilities to modernize them, a lunar mark symbolizes a transitional period from fledgeling to vampire. Native American mythology and incarnations of literal good and evil ensures this book if crammed with fantasy elements.


The world in the house of Night evolves throughout the series as any good series that spans 12 books should. The primary location is in a boarding school and the surrounding area in Tulsa, Oklahoma.


Our main character Zoey Redbird, is just 16 when she is marked as a new vampire. She starts her journey reluctant and afraid of her gifts but soon finds that they truly are gifts from the Goddess Nyx.


The primary antagonist of this series is Neferet magical vampire headmistress and all out bad ass. She literally makes a deal with the incarnation of evil!


House of Night features elemental magic, a healthy mixture of native American, Celtic and Grecian mythology as well as vampire lore.

If you haven’t seen why I love this series yet. Go read it for yourself. This series is great for lovers of magic and vampire stories. The teenage girl in me still swoons over the intricate love stories woven between the ongoing battle we’re reading.

House of Night is the perfect series to add to your shelf especially if you already have copies of The Mortal Instruments, The Immortals or Nightworld.


Have you read House of Night? Did you finish the series? What did you think? 

What We’re Reading: July – Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone 20th Anniversary!

Anyone born after the 90s is well aware of the Harry Potter series and it’s ability to bring something as nerdy as magic wands and spectacles to mainstream popculture.

It started with a single book and spawned into a franchise worth billions. J.K. Rowling as a result has managed to go from living a life of homelessneed as a single mom to heading a global fantasy empire.

July’s book of the month is our tribute to the students of Hogwarts whom we’ve grown to know and love.

What We’re Reading: House of D’Antonio

House of D'Antonio

The views shared throughout this review are solely the opinions of Blu Moon Fiction Staff. As always, we recommend reading the book for yourself and should you disagree with our views we encourage you to tell us. The reviews published by Blu Moon Fiction have been read for content, spelling and grammar.

The very first thing I noticed when receiving my copy of, The House of D’Antonio by Reece Cooper James, was the beautiful cover. The young woman on the cover is very striking and the translucent figure gives a sense that something of the paranormal may be happening.

Flipping to the back of the book we read of Roman D’Antonio king of Brocklehurst and surviving ruler of the House of D’Antonio. He alone is charged with traveling through dimensions to seek out Abigail, whose bloodline is the key to breaking the D’Antonio curse. Abigail has been bred to understand her family’s legacy as one of great responsibility; in her world she envisions Roman as her imaginary friend. From the explanation you should infer  this novel is one that features the two meeting and blending worlds in a way that either successfully ends the curse or doesn’t. Unfortunately, that is not what you get.

The most noticeable thing when you open the book is the possibly triple spaced layout. There are a few minor typos that can be overlooked if you desire to power through. If layout doesn’t put you off and for some people it may, then continue reading and learn all about  Abigail “Abi”Trenaulde.
