Book Review: Lenobia's Vow - P.C. Cast

Lenobia's Vow (House of Night Novellas, #2)
The second in the enthralling new mini-series of novellas from the #1 bestselling authors of the House of Night, Lenobia's Vow tells the gripping story behind the House of Night's enigmatic riding instructor – and one of Zoey’s closest allies against evil.

In a small southern town at the turn of the century, young Lenobia is developing into a beautiful young woman with ideas of her own. But when she is Marked as a fledgling vampyre, her world turns upside down, and she is drawn to the musical streets of New Orleans. There, she learns of the city’s dark underbelly, ruled by powerful black magic. As Lenobia experiences her first love – and loss – and discovers a passion for horses to sustain her, she must come face-to-face with Darkness itself. And she may not escape without scars.

3/5 stars (liked it)
I like reading the House of Night Novellas.  They are short and we get some backstory on adult characters.  The first was about Dragon and it made me understand his actions in the recent novels.  This story is about Lenobia and now I understand her more and why she acted the way she did with Travis in the last House of Night novel.  This story follows her journey from France to New Orleans and how the journey changes her to become the person she is.  We do not get to know her much after she is marked.  I felt the very last chapter was too rushed and that too much happened right at the end, almost forced.  Otherwise a good story.  Looking forward to reading the next novella about Neferet.
