Synopsis: Goodreads:

Merry meet, fledgling. Welcome to a new life, a new world, and a new you. Welcome to the House of Night!

This might seem like a scary time, Fledgling, but never fear! As you start your journey through the ancient halls of the House of Night, this indispensable handbook will aid you in your transition from human to fledgling. Within these pages you will find invaluable information about the history of vampyres. You will also come to a better understanding of your body’s transformation, as well as read words of hope from great vampyres of the past and learn essential foundations of rituals and lore. Now, Fledgling, read on. A new life awaits you; your path to that magickal future begins here!  

My review:

I had such high hopes for this book… I don’t really know where to begin. I do have to say I didn’t enjoy it, much. Parts of it I loved, but most I didn’t. The Fledgling Handbook was a let down, and really was more of a text book (quite boring) rather than a book to accompany one of my favourite series. Yes, I know that’s what it is, but I expected it to be more interesting. 

I read this book in about 40 minutes and I found the pictures to be more interesting than what P.C Cast had to say about the history of the vampyres.

The HoN version of Cleopatra I did, however find very interesting. I quite enjoyed reading that bit. 

As much as I enjoy the House of Night series, I really didn’t enjoy The Fledgling Handbook.
