Marked by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast

But if you like a decent story line, interesting characters and a cool adventure and concept – this series could be for you.

Zoey is a teen girl who lives with her highly annoying mother (read new wacko hubby…) and the step dad who is a total religious freakazoid.  She is miserable and takes her happiness where she can get it – with her friends at school and a wonderful, spiritual grandmother.  Out of the blue she gets Marked, meaning a vampyre seeks her out and marks her for the change into vampyre.  The story gets more interesting from here and I liked it enough to go off and find the next book in the series.
