UPDATE: This contest is now closed. Congrats to Brooke D. on winning Nyx in the House of Night.
Despite my less-than-favorable review of Awakened, like many of you I’ve stuck with the House of Night series. One of the things — in addition to my love for Stark circa book 6 — that keeps me coming back is the mythology element. P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast have crafted a vampire world based around the worship of the goddess of night, Nyx. If you love the House of Night world, it’s likely you’ll be able to appreciate Nyx in the House of Night. The book is a collection of essays on the mythology, the world of House of Night. Some of my favorite works in the book come from authors you’re familiar with including Yasmine Galenorn (love her take on female deity), Karen Mahoney and Jeri Smith-Ready.
Want to win a copy of this anthology from Smart Pop Books? Leave a comment answering this question: Who is your favorite House of Night character? Contest is open to U.S. and Canadian addresses only. Enter by June 27.
The House of Night is no ordinary school—and not just because it’s for vampyres. It’s a place where magic, religion, folklore, and mythology from multiple traditions merry meet and meld to create something incredible and new. In Nyx in the House of Night, some of your favorite YA authors, plus a few experts, help you navigate the influences behind the House of Night series in a guide that would get even Damien’s seal of approval.
Travel with P.C. Cast as she gets her first tattoo in Ireland, climbs the ruins of Sgiach’s castle, and discovers the lore that led to the Isle of Skye vampyres. Read Kristin Cast’s defense of women in history and mythology who, like Zoey, have made a practice of juggling multiple men. Sit in on a vampyre lecture by Bryan Lankford, the real-life basis for House of Night instructor Dragon Lankford, on the parallels between Wiccan and vampyre circle rituals. Tour Tulsa’s House of Night landmarks with local Amy H. Sturgis.
Nyx in the House of Night also includes an appendix of character names that reveals the myth behind Zoey’s last name, which House of Night cats have ties to Camelot, Egypt, and Middle-earth, and more!
