 Review:
 
Ever since Marked came out, I’ve wanted to know what Zoey Redbird’s Fledgling Handbook looks like. As a matter of fact, anytime I read a book about someone going to a special school and getting their handbooks, I always wonder what they’re like. I was a nerd in school, so I liked getting these guides and reading over the rules and regulations of my new school – and I liked it even more when they included the history. So, when I got the chance to read The Fledgling Handbook 101, I was over the moon.Though I have my own issues with some of the characters, I am a fan of the House of Night series. P.C. Cast does not fail me with this guide. With a gorgeous cover, thick pages and beautiful drawings, you’ll get lost in the history and mythology behind not only the House of Night, but vampyre folklore as well. I also think the pages where you can add your own notes about your changing vampyre self is a cute little touch and makes it feel like a true school handbook. Over everything, my absolute favorite thing to it all is the vampyre history stories that include places and historical figures that we all know and are familiar with.

I read through the book in less than an hour, then spent more time going through and studying the pictures and footnotes. With less than two hundred pages, it’s an extremely easy read. The price seems a little steep for this guide, but it is a welcome addition to anyone’s HoN collection.
