I am a HUGE Twilight fan, but after I started reading this series, Twilight got completely washed out of my mind. (Except for the part in the movies where Jacob takes his shirt off!) Don't get me wrong, they are both super good series, but I think House of Night is a little better than Twilight! It's not too lovey-dovey, but House of Night doesn't have too much action. It's not too touche, but just a perfect blend of all things that are good in books. People who don't get completely sucked into romance books should read this series. Stevie Ray is busy dealing with her red fledging problems, Zoey has to get her shattered soul back togethor, and Aphrodite had to get used her new powers. I would recremend this book to anyone.
