House of Night Books in Order: How to read P.C. Cast series?

What if you needed to go to school to become a vampire?

What’s House of Night?

Written by P.C. Cast and her daughter Kristin Cast, House of Night is a series of young adult fantasy novels following the adventures of a teenager who must be trained to become a vampyre.

More precisely, the story is about a sixteen-year-old girl named Zoey Redbird who has just become what is called a ‘fledgling vampyre’. Now, it is required of her to attend the House of Night boarding school in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

House of Night Books in Order:

Marked – Zoey enters the House of Night, a school where, after having undergone the Change, she will train to become an adult vampire – that is, if she makes it through the Change. Not all of those who are chosen do. On top of that, Zoey finds she is no average fledgling. She has been Marked as special by the vampyre Goddess, Nyx.

Betrayed – Fledgling vampyre Zoey Redbird has managed to settle in at the House of Night. Best of all, she finally feels like she belongs – like she really fits in. She actually has a boyfriend … or two. Then the unthinkable happens: Human teenagers are being killed, and all the evidence points to the House of Night. While danger stalks the humans from Zoey’s old life, she begins to realize that the very powers that make her so unique also might threaten those she loves.

Chosen – Dark forces are at work at the House of Night and fledgling vampyre Zoey Redbird’s adventures at the school take a mysterious turn. Those who appear to be friends are turning out to be enemies. And oddly enough, sworn enemies are also turning into friends. Her best friend, Stevie Rae, is undead and struggling to maintain a grip on her humanity, vampyres start turning up dead, and the People of Faith, and Zoey’s horrid step-father in particular, are tired of living side-by-side with vampyres.

Untamed – Life sucks when your friends are pissed at you. Just ask Zoey Redbird. In one week she has gone from having three boyfriends to having none, and from having a close group of friends who trusted and supported her, to being an outcast. Speaking of friends, the only two Zoey has left are undead and unMarked. And Neferet has declared war on humans, which Zoey knows in her heart is wrong.

Hunted – Zoey and her gang must discover a way to deal with an unexpected danger that might bring them all down. Neferet guards her powerful new consort, Kalona, who looks gorgeous and has the House of Night under his spell. A past life holds the key to breaking his rapidly spreading power, but what if it shows Zoey truths she can’t face? Meanwhile, the red fledglings have cleaned up well, but are they really as friendly as they seem?

Tempted – After Zoey Redbird and her gang have banished Kalona and Neferet, you’d think they’d catch a break. But Zoey is haunted by her confusing yet elemental connection with A-ya, the ancient Cherokee maiden who was the only human able to tempt Kalona’s body and soul. When dark secrets and unspoken suspicions come between Zoey and Stevie Rae, putting their friendship – and the House of Night – at risk.

Burned – Zoey Redbird’s soul has shattered. With everything she’s ever stood for falling apart, it’s seeming more and more doubtful that she’ll be able to pull herself back together in time to rejoin her friends and set the world to rights. As the only living person who can reach her, Stark must find a way to get to her. But how? BFF Stevie Rae wants to help Z but she has massive problems of her own. The rogue Red Fledglings are acting up. The truth is, Stevie Rae’s hiding a secret that might be the key to getting Zoey home but also threatens to explode her whole world.

Awakened – Exonerated by the Vampyre High Council and returned to her position of High Priestess at Tulsa’s House of Night, Neferet has sworn vengeance on Zoey. But Zoey has found sanctuary on the Isle of Skye and is being groomed by Queen Sgiach to take over for her there.

Dragon’s Oath – Novella. Dragon Lankford wasn’t always an instructor at the House of Night. Once he was a student: young, talented and in love. But the mistake that cost him everything might be the key to helping Zoey and the rest of the vampyres in their fight against darkness…

Destined – Zoey is finally home where she belongs, safe with her Guardian Warrior, Stark, by her side, and preparing to face off against Neferet – which would be a whole lot easier if the High Counsel saw the ex-High Priestess for what she really is…

Lenobia’s Vow – Novella. Before becoming Zoey’s favorite professor and the House of Night’s powerful horse mistress, Lenobia was just a normal 16-year-old girl – but with enough problems to last a lifetime…

Hidden – Zoey at last has what she wanted: the truth is out. Neferet’s evil has been exposed, and the High Council is no longer on her side – so why is she far from done wreaking havoc in the vampyre world? First a mysterious fire ravages the stables, then, Neferet makes a devastating move that will test them all.

Neferet’s Curse – Novella. From victim to High Priestess, beautiful young woman to a powerful seductress, Neferet’s journey begins here.

Revealed – Drastically altered after her fall, Neferet is now more dangerous than ever – and her quest for vengeance will wreak havoc on humans as well as Zoey and her friends. Chaos is loosed in Tulsa and the House of Night is blamed. Can Zoey stop Neferet in time to keep her anger from escalating to full-on war? Or will someone else have to step in to take the fall?

Kalona’s Fall – Novella. From Warrior And Lover To Enemy And Betrayer, The Terrible Secrets Of Kalona’s Past Are Revealed.

Redeemed – Having released the Seer Stone to Aphrodite, and surrendered herself to the Tulsa Police, Zoey has isolated herself from her friends and mentors, determined to face the punishment she deserves – even if that means her body will reject the change, and begin to die. Only the love of those closest to her can save her from the Darkness in her spirit; but a terrible evil has emerged from the shadows, more powerful than ever…

House of Night Other World Books in Order:

PC and Kristin Cast have decided to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the ‘House of Night’ series by going on a new adventure with the Nerd Herd.

Loved – It’s Zoey’s eighteenth birthday and the Nerd Herd has been scattered across the country busily adulting for almost a year when Stark calls them back to Tulsa to surprise Z. But all is not well in T-town. Strange, dark signs are appearing – could it be possible Neferet is stirring? Not willing to chance disaster striking again, Zoey calls on her newly reunited friends to circle with her and add a layer of protection over Neferet’s grotto jail. Easy-peasy, right?

Lost – Follow Zoey, Stevie Rae, and Rephaim to an alternative version of the House of Night, where dangers take the form of friends and allies are found in the strangest places. Will Z return to our world and leave Heath to his? And if she does, will Stark forgive her for leaving?

  1. I love the House Of Night Series.

    • Shelly Miner

      Me too have only read the first four this week . But love them ,only have one more than have to start looking for them

      • Georgianna

        Go to ThriftBooks they have House Of Night and I got most of them for under $5 ?
        I love this series, but haven’t read anything else by P. C. Cast or Kristen Cast. Does anyone know if they are as good as H. O. N.?

  2. Sheri Pacetti

    I was hooked after just a few pages. I have read 12 books of p.c Cast and I have I think 4 left to read hope she writes more soon.

  3. Mary-Elizabeth Sabo-Jones

    While I am enjoying the books, I am dismayed by the authors’ use of the R word (Retarded and its variations). This is a very offensive word to those of us who have developmentally delayed family members. Further, for such talented authors, it is a sophomoric and stereotypical writing choice. I would like to think in later editions that the authors would replace that word with better choices.

    • Madison Wood

      Honestly, that’s the point though, is it not? P.C. Cast is conveying exactly how hate-filled Aphrodite can be. She obviously knows how wrong of a word it is, you can see that by the reactions of the other characters. I think it shows that no matter how much of a “good guy” Aprodite becomes, she will always have that protective wall up. It reinforces that there are very few who get to see the real Aphrodite, namely, Zoey and Darius.

    • Nuna

      Jesus it’s the original word, grow up! Stop being so dam sensitive you are ruining the world !

  4. Shelly Miner

  6. Brian

    I love this series I remember when I first started reading it when I was in high school, my friend recommended it to me.

  7. Angela

    I just finished reading all 12 books. I’m curious if it would be ok to skip the 4 Books (Dragons Oath, Lenobias Vow, Neferets Curse, and Kalona’s Fall) for now and go straight to reading Loved and Lost. Or should I read the others first and saved Loved and Lost for the end? I didn’t know if I would miss out on something ny not reading them in order..

    • Loran

      I’m recommend reading them in the order above. I have read the entire series 3 times!

    • Chelise

      You don’t have to read the novellas in order or at all. They give a wonderful insight to the secondary characters and allows you to know them and their decisions better.

  8. alishba Khan

  9. Smriti

  10. I have only just now finished the first book of the house of night series and I am already addicted to this series.

  11. Chelise

    You don’t have to read the novellas in order or at all. They give a wonderful insight to the secondary characters and allows you to know them and their decisions better.
