Young adult fans of the series will appreciate the entertaining handbook enhanced by Ms. Doner's colorful drawings as the newcomers are guided on what to expect as their body changes in a puberty-like twist. As Shekinah says: "Within chaos lies opportunity"; not for everybody as this entertaining reference guide is a companion piece to the saga by providing Fledglings and readers with increased opportunity of understand the world as Cast and less chaos.
I found that I really liked reading it. not only did it fill me in on what they were talking about but the stories in it are good.
The first thing I want to say is the House of Night series is NOT for young adults under age 18. I don’t know why it has always been promoted as young adult, when the majority of the books are not appropriate for minors. Yes, the main character is sixteen when the series begins, but even then there is too much sexual content for my taste as a mother of a teenager. I might let my daughter read the first book, but definitely not any of the other ones. I think it fits better into the new adult category because of the sexual content, especially as the series goes on, the character ages, and becomes more sexually active.
However, The Fledgling Handbook 101 is okay for readers of all ages. But, if you haven’t read any of the House of Night series, it might not be as interesting to you. I think this book is an awesome companion to the series, but not as appealing as a standalone.
The Fledgling Handbook 101 is the same book that the main character in the series receives when she starts attending the House of Night, which is kind of cool.
The book tells the students everything they need to know to transition from a human to a vampyre fledgling (then later a vampyre).
The school is for ages 9th to 12th grade, but older people are present as professors, warriors, etc.
I enjoyed the illustrations in the book and the mythology that P.C. and Kristin Cast created. The book explains in detail everything that a reader would learn if they read the other books in the House of Night series.
Some of the topics covered in the book are: the curriculum of the House of Night, vampyre biology, rituals, and vampyre history.Read more ›
The history and present stories about vampyres are great. As the handbook says, A new life awaits you; your path to that magickal future begins here!

I have read all the House of Nights up to book 8. I'm still looking for 9-12. I got the handbook to read while I look for the others.
