Giveaway: Nyx in the House of Night [CLOSED]


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.

Nyx in the House of Night anthologyThe 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!

    My fav character, besides the obvious Zoey, is Stark, because he seems to have the biggest challenges to face, and he does them magnificently! And he looks good doing them…..

  2. Emily D. says:


  3. Krystal says:

    My fave character, no matter what happened, is Stark. I fell in love with him the first time “we met” and have loved him since then!
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  4. Celeste O says:

    I love Stark.

    Thanks for the giveaway.

  5. Brianna Vejvoda says:

    Zoey- obviously! Love her! But her friend Stevie’s cool too 🙂

    Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  6. Alyssa says:

    Aphrodite is kind of a fave of mine. I love her attitude, and I bet that she actually does care for the whole group even if she doesn’t say the nicest things to them. Yes, she really does have a heart!


  7. Missy Carlson says:

    I’d have to go with Stevie.

  8. Erika W. says:

    I have never read the series, but i would like too! That way i could have a fav.

  9. Sariah says:

    I like Zoey of course but I also like Zoey’s grandma and Stark.

  10. I love Aphrodite! Even though she can be snotty and bratty sometimes, I think she’s a great character and she really does have a good heart, for the most part 🙂

    I was assistant manager of a bookstore for many years. Our DM asked us to chose a particular to hand sell. I convinced my manager to choose the House of Night series. By this time only the first 3 books were out and I was already doing my best to get my customers hooked. By the end of our selling contest we had made the series almost as popular as Twilight. Though my bookstore is closed I remain an avid fan. It is truly a tough decision to name a favorite character. They are all exemplary, well written characters. I have to say that end the end my favorite is Grandma Redbird. She is the women I strive to be one day.

  12. Brandy Swain says:

    oooh hard q’s, I think I would have to go with Stark as well, loved him as soon as He entered the House of Night world! Thanks for the giveaway

  13. Angela S says:

    I love Stark, but Aphrodite has become my fave character. It’s been nice to see her character grow into someone that really cares about her friends even though she’d never admit it. She has the attitude that she can pick on her friends but no one else can. She’s the first one to fight with them but one of their strongest defenders.

  14. Vivien says:

    Aphrodite is my new favorite 🙂

    I’m kind of new to the series, I’m part way through the second book and needed to take a break. But I do like the mythology of the series like you mentioned and plan to read all of it, I have it all on my ipod except this book I just haven’t gotten to it yet. So far after only reading book one I like Zoey the best.

  16. elaing8 says:

    Its a toss up between Stark and Aphrodite. But I’ll go with Stark as my favorite.Zoey has actually gotten on my nerves lately 😉
    Thanks for the chance to win this.

  17. I love Aphrodite. She has grown so much in the series. She may act like she is all tough on the outside and act bitchy, to boot, but she is just covering up her soft warm caramel center.

  18. Linda says:

    I love Damien. He’s so friendly and I’ve always wanted a friend like him and Jack.

  19. Mandy says:

    I”m going with all the Aphrodite and Stark fans. 🙂 I, too love Aphrodite’s attitude – and I love how she just tells it like it is. Stark – pssh, I just fell in love with him immediately.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  20. Aly deolarte says:

    Aphrodite! Duh! Who doesn’t love the once mean but now totally cool character. I love her!

  21. I am too new to the series to have a favorite character yet, but Zoey is awfully cool. 🙂
    Thank you for the giveaway!

  32. Lora1967 says:

    My favorite is Stark because he was like a guy i would like!

  33. Mechele says:

    I am definitely Team Stark!!! What more can a girl ask for in a warrior?

  34. Megan Cheng says:

    I started out liking Heath but in the end Stark wins hands down!
    I guess I would have to say Stark then! Great contest, btw.

  35. savanna ucinski says:

    I love Stevie Ray she’s just like me. Awesome giveaway by the way! 🙂

  36. connie garcia says:

    My fav is Heath he has always loved zoey and has her back

  37. I love all the characters. It’s such a hard decision to pick. I can’t believe you guys are making me do this…sigh. Well, it comes between two. Jack, who I love so much for the Defying Gravity scene, and Stark, who I love so much because he always there for Zoey and wouldn’t betray her. So between Stark and Jack? Eeeesh. Possibly Stark more. :p

  38. Karen says:

    I would have to say Aphrodite is my favorite. I like her attitude but she is always there for her friends ever though she tries to pretend they don’t mean that much to her, which they do. Then I would have to say Stark.

  39. I love the whole series. But I have to say my favorite character is Zoey. She’s strong – alot stronger than she gives herself credit for. I think she’s got alot of growing up to do… but hey she’s a kid. She has alot to offer the others and she’s coming into her own (her powers, her strength, her will.) I also love Grandma Redbird!!! Wise woman!

  40. jennjennmom says:

    Stark is my favorite because of his hard attitude except for Zoey – i love how he’s given himself to her

  41. allison says:

    Hard to pick just one…I’m going to go with Heath. He had such love and commitment to Zoey.

  42. Angela says:

    Stark for sure!

  43. Amanda T. says:


  44. Tyler says:

    Well i like Stevie Rae, i dont know why but she has always been my favorite 😀

  45. LaDonna says:

    Aphrodite of course. Every girl needs a great frenemy.

  46. Emily A says:

    My favourite character would have to be Stark.
    I’ve loved him right from when he was introduced in the book. I just about died when he was ‘dying’ in Untamed, but like many other characters in this book, the dead do not always remain dead.

  47. Katie L says:

    The twins are my favorites! Erin and Shaunee remind me of my best friend and I, we just work well together like them!

  48. Marjie Pride says:

    Rephaim and Stevie Rae are my favorites I love Their story!
