Editorial Reviews

Review

“Caitlin Davies gently balances the emotional tenors of her journey with convincing French and Creole accents…Listeners will find themselves most captivated, though, by the tender love that Lenobia develops with a Creole horse hand named Martin.” ―AudioFile Magazine --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover
Today Lenobia is the horse mistress of the House of Night in St. Louis and Zoey Redbird's favorite teacher. She and her mother were servants in 1788 at the Chateau de Naverre in Evreux, France. Her father the baron seduced her mother, impregnated her and cast her and their offspring aside. That child Lenobia looks identical to her spoiled half-sister Cecile.

When Lenobia is sixteen years old, the legitimate daughter dies from ague. Leonia's mother arranges for her daughter to masquerade as Cecile in order for her to marry an affluent aristocrat. The plot works perfectly as Lenobia and other unmarried young ladies travel by ship to New Orleans to marry rich French aristocrats. While traversing the Atlantic, evil sorcerer Bishop Charles recognizes and announces the fraud as he coveted her back in France and plans to make her his mistress. A nun protects her and she decides to go to the cargo hold on the last level of the ship where she meets Quadroon Martin in the stables. She falls in love with him and the Percheron horse that his employer bought. He sent Martin to go to France so that he could take care of them over the long sea voyage. n The Bishop soon makes his move to rape Lenobia using all means available to him while Martin vows to keep his beloved safe.

The latest House of Night Novella (see Dragon's Oath) focuses on the teen years of a secondary but popular character. Readers learn what shaped Lenobia's present mysterious life as the child is the adult even if two centuries have passed. At sixteen, Lenobia displays the same traits she shows as a teacher: courage, honesty and inner strength. She wanted to be happy, but her choices were limited to be or not to be until a third option was offered. This is an engaging biographical fiction as the Cast crew entertains their fans.

LENOBIA'S VOW by PC & Kristin Cast

LENOBIA'S VOW is the 2nd story in PC and Kristin Cast's House of Night novella series. Each novella delves into the background and younger lives of the resident professors and vampyres at the current day House of Night. Dragon's Oath was the first storyline, followed by Lenobia's Vow and in July 2012, the release of Neferet's Curse. As with most novellas, the story is both quick and easy, but the information into the past lives and loves, is always welcome.

It is 1788 and Lenobia Whitehall is the 16 year old bastard daughter of Baron D'Auvergne. She and her mother work as servants on her father's estate. When her half-sister Cecile suddenly dies, her mother risks everything to send her only daughter away. Forcing Lenobia to assume the identity of her dead sister, Lenobia becomes one of the `fille a la casquette'-known historically as casket girl, refers to one of the women brought from France to the French colonies of Louisiana to marry.

When Lenobia arrives at port to board the sailing ship Minerva, she is stunned, when Bishop Charles, the parish priest who has eyes only for Lenobia, is granted passage on the same ship. The Bishop has an evil reputation, one filled with sudden and terrifying injuries and deaths, especially by fire. But word about his dalliances had reached Rome, and as suspected, the Holy Father has sent Charles to his new parish in the Louisiana, hoping to curtail the rumors about his `demonic' personality.

Throughout the 8-week voyage, Lenobia remains secluded in her cabin, feigning sea sick, fearing Father Charles will recognize her as an imposter.

I'm a little disappointed by the cost of the House of Night novellas, but I knew what I was getting into when I paid it. These authors do an incredible job of fleshing out characters and making you understand the choices they have made with their lives. In this one, you follow Lenobia as she was when she was Zoey's age, dealing with vampirism and what it means for her. She struggles with forbidden loves and overwhelming loss. Definitely well-written, and although I am unhappy by how much the publisher sets the prices for the novellas, I do not regret the purchase. It was worth the money.

The story was good. But, I will no longer be buying the short stories that compliment this series. I just paid $10 for about $2 worth of story.

Mode: Physical Book

Cover: There are more than one type of cover that I know of. I own this book in e-book format and physical book. Both have different covers. Both are very beautiful though. I've also seen a few more on Google images which also strikes me as beautiful.

Genre: Paranormal Young Adult

Plot: Lenobia is the illegitimate daughter of a Baron. Her legitimate half-sister, who is set to be sent off to marry someone in America, dies suddenly. Her mother decides to send her in her place for a chance at a new and better life. Can she survive the voyage without anybody finding out her true identity? What will she sacrifice to keep her secret?

Characters: Every book has strong leads for good and evil. Like any book, this has those. You root for the good characters while despising the evil ones. When it comes to Lenobia though, I've always pictured her as a Callie Ducane (CSI: Miami). I'm guessing the younger version of her would be a younger version of Callie Ducane. Lenobia is one of my favorite characters in the House Of Night series.

Grammar: A Plus!

General Thoughts: I'll never understand how these two authors can put such a dramatically intense story together all in one short Novella. They did it with Dragon's Oath and they did it with Lenobia's Vow. It was a very adorably touching story. I don't want to say too much and give away the ending. For those who read the House Of Night series, it does answer some questions about Lenobia that kind of fester throughout the series. It also kind of explains Neferet's veiled plot against Lenobia in Destined (book nine of House Of Night Series.) I fully recommend this book. It's a great and short read!
