This book did not hold my intest very well. It was a series of lectures. Some were more intresting than others; my personal favorite was Bryan Lankford's (the inspiration behind House of Night fencing instructor Dragon Lankford) section on the circles and the elements in the House of Night universe. I kind of wanted to know a bit more about that, so I'd have to say that was the only one that was really helpful. I also enjoyed reading Jordan Dane's background on the Cherokee legends and heritage in the story. The appendix on character names was useful, although just be noted not everyone's in there. They say that "what you see is what you get." Namely, we see nothing on Stevie Rae Johnson, Erik Night, and Heath Luck. I can kind of see why the quote fits those three characters. The others, however, were more like classes on religion than anything. Ellen Steiber's part on felines in mythology, Yasmine Galenorn's lecture on priestesses and worshiping of female dieties, basically the same thing again in Christine Ziga's lecture, and Trinity Faegen's part on the Underworld were all kind of boring and barely relevant to the HofN books.
Jana Oliver's lecture was more on the history of body art instead of more on the vampires' markings in the HofN series. That wasn't all that intresting to me, so I kind of just skimmed through it just looking for stuff on the vampires. There was nothing, so that one was a bit of a downer for me.
None of the other lectures really stood out in my mind.Read more ›
