Review: House of Night: Legacy by P.C. Cast & Kristin Cast

Title: House of Night: Legacy (House of Night: The Graphic Novel #1)
Author: P.C. Cast & Kristin Cast
Publisher: Dark Horse Comics
Publish Date: July 10, 2012

Until recently, Zoey Redbird was an average high-school student worrying about grades, boys, and breakouts. But priorities have a way of changing when you're Marked as a vampyre, enroll in the vampyre academy House of Night, and have to figure out a whole new social hierarchy, affinities for elemental magic, and physiological changes that make you crave blood.

Based on the international bestselling series of novels by mother/daughter duo P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast, House of Night: Legacy follows Zoey and her group of devoted friends as they turn to The Fledgling Handbook, a historical vampyre tome, in hopes of better understanding this big, new world of vampyrism. ~ Courtesy of Goodreads

I love reading graphic novels, because sometimes I just want to SEE the things I'm reading about. You can imagine things in a book, of course. But a graphic novel turns words into art. That's what I love about them.

The illustrations in House of Night: Legacy are beautiful and really draw you into the story. The problem for me was that the pictures were the only thing keeping me reading the story. I found it to be just as abrupt and confusing as when I started reading the first House of Night novel. I'd hoped maybe reading the graphic novel would be better, would make me love the books or something. It didn't. But I did fall in love with the Legacy cover. It's gorgeous!

If you're a fan of the House of Night series, you will love Legacy. If you're not a fan, than this won't help change you're mind about it. But, like I said, the illustrations are beautiful, so if you see a copy somewhere, take a flip through and appreciate the artwork!

  1. So sorry that you didn't care for this. I'm a huge fan of HoN so I will definitely need to have a look at it. I didn't know this was / is going to be available so thanks for sharing. :)

    1. You should definitely check it out if you're a huge fan. I'm sure you'll love it :)

  2. Great review! I'm not a huge fan of HoN but I did enjoy the first couple of books. I was debating whether or not I would get this one. I have seen some of the graphics and they definitely looked beautiful!

  3. I remember reading Marked a year ago, thinking it was decent enough to continue on with the series. But when I saw the extremely long list of books I would have to dedicate myself to go through, I called quits. Besides, wikipedia's summaries are so much shorter. It doesn't seem like graphic novels are any better compared to their original counterparts.
