The Fledgling Handbook 101

That’s right House of Night fans, you’ve got another new book to look forward to: The Fledgling Handbook 101 by P. C. Cast and Kim Doner.

Merry meet, fledgling. Welcome to a new life, a new world, and a new you. Welcome to the House of Night!

This might seem like a scary time, Fledgling, but never fear! As you start your journey through the ancient halls of the House of Night, this indispensable handbook will aid you in your transition from human to fledgling. Within these pages you will find invaluable information about the history of vampyres.  You will also come to a better understanding of your body’s transformation, as well as read words of hope from great vampyres of the past and learn essential foundations of rituals and lore. Now, Fledgling, read on.  A new life awaits you; your path to that magickal future begins here!

Ok, so when the House of Night series first started I was a huge fan, I absolutely loved the story, characters and how imaginative the books were. But then came along Hunted, one of the lamest books I have ever read, a book that was nothing more than pure filler, a book I hated so much that I haven’t continued to read the series. Once I finished Hunted it was pretty clear that that book had one purpose - to make money. That’s how I see this Fledgling Handbook, it was created for the authors to make some easy cash. The House of Night series has a huge fan base, and fans will buy this book - this book full of information that can be found inside the series themselves. So if you buy this book, you’re just paying for something you’ve already paid for. Lame.

But that’s my opinion on it, what do you guys think?

Oh and before you drown me in hate mail, I do plan on finishing the series. I have heard that they get better again and hopefully they do. I really did love the first couple books, but Hunted ruined it for me. Anyway, yes, I will get around to reading the other books… eventually.

The Fledgling Handbook 101 will hit bookshelves October 26, 2010.
