This graphic novel takes place around book 1 / book 2 of the series. It doesn't repeat the story but it does take you into the story that you already know. The majority of story line actually takes you into the Fledgling Handbook and the stories behind the elements. Those stories are completely removed from the HoN story, so it's the same, but different. It was fun to see the characters, some looked just like they did in my imagination, others were different, but that's ok. The two downsides are 1-a new character in Zoeys family (really? bad move people) and 2-some of the images were disturbing. I don't want to give away spoilers, however I think it's right to advise that there are depictions of rape scenarios, and that's not ok. Fast forward thru those 3 pages, and I liked it.

House of Night: Legacy (House of Night: The Graphic Novel #1) contains five issue, Earth, Air, Water, Fire, and Spirit. Based on the bestselling series by author P.C. Cast, House of Night, issue #1 of this graphic novel series follows the life of Zoey Redbird, a sixteen year-old vampyre fledgling, as she finds strength and determination to become the leader of the Dark Daughters. Zoey is apprehensive about her new assignment because it means she will have to be a leader, a position she never wanted and believes she doesn’t deserve. In order to understand why the Goddess Nyx marked her and to see if she truly has what it takes to lead the Daughters, Nyx gives Zoe five tasks to complete. Moreover, if she successfully learns her five lessons, she will be deemed ready to lead the Dark Daughters. In each of the five stories, we’re given a glimpse into the House of Night history by following the lives of famous vampyres who were each associated with one of the five elements. The purpose of each is to essentially teach Zoey some important life lesson about humility, sympathy, asking for help, among others. There is never a dull moment in this graphic novel, and I must say I thoroughly the enjoyed story. Never having read the House of Night Series, I didn’t know what to expect with this graphic novel. Nevertheless, I am pleasantly surprised at how interesting and rich issue #1 was, giving depth to a story for those of us who might not have found out about this series otherwise. The author goes into tremendous detail as each vampyre’s life is retold over several pages. You can also see growth and character development with our main character Zoey, which is sometimes hard to accomplish in this type of setting (i.e. a novel vs. a graphic novel/comic). I also enjoyed the entire cast of side characters who each had different personalities and I can see them appealing to a wide variety of teenagers. Overall, House of Night: Legacy is another surprise hit for me. I think it is perfect for anyone who is a fan of all things paranormal and not just for those people who have read the books. The art work also flows cohesively with the story. With each element, you can see the colors transition to fit the overall tone of that section of narrative. It’s a fun read with a wealth of detail and I highly recommend it! Originally Reviewed at: Mother/Gamer/Writer Reviewer: Me

It's not written well. & Shaunee isnt dark skinned she is caramel. Plus, all of them look like their in their mid twenties. Their teens. & Nyx isnt brunette.

The most fascinating aspect of this book is its reinterpretation of traditional stories to fit the mythology of the series' world. Each retelling is done by a different artist, linked by the stories located at the House of Night, the artwork done by the same artist. The storyline parallels the series, though the differences may be a turnoff to fans while newcomers may be confused by the need for backstory. Further, it is unclear where exactly in the overall series this story takes place.

Background: House of Night #1 Graphic Novel follows Zoey Redbird like the House of Night series, however it is not a continuation of the series nor the first book of the series in graphic novel form.Review: I enjoyed reading this graphic novel, but only because I have read most of the House of Night Series. Here we see Zoey with her full powers, not as she enters the House of Night school like the first book (which is what I thought this was going to be). We follow her through lessons about how her powers are both a blessing and a curse, and need to be used in appropriate ways. The shorts are divided into an intro, and then by the elements to learn each lesson. The illustrations were very vibrant with color and information. Each frame had just enough of an explanation about the goings-on of the House of Night and its characters without being over crowded. I do however have some criticisms, I was a little taken aback by how everyone is a stick with a giant heads, and the illustrator in some frames did not seem to get the proportions quite right. My other criticism is that I am not sure that this tale is needed in the series. I understand that some graphic novels give insight into the series it continues but here it seems thrown into the storyline, not the beginning, nor the most recent book¿ it¿s a bit odd. Having read the series I know this, but for those reading without that background some of the bigger questions might be left open ended, like, why is she there? Why is her mark already filled?

My teenage daughter loved the first novel in the House Of Night series. When I saw that Dark Horse was going to publish a graphic novel version I was intrigued. Sadly, what’s here is not a version of that book, but more of a supplement. Unfortunately it’s a bland and uninteresting, by the numbers snoozer. Each chapter is a look at a significant look into world history and how it fits into the Vampyre mythos. Its really not good. The writing is poor, the dialogue clichéd, and the art is uneven and amateurish. The only thing that keeps this from being ranked lower is the beautiful covers by Steve Morris. Overall, I can’t imagine this being well received by anyone. Decent idea with terrible execution.
