Inside you’ll find original stories, the complete vampyre history, inside info into rituals, vamp biology, and the Change, and much more." (

How I obtained the book: Bought for 50 cents at Friends of the Library charity book sale

Memorable quotes:
  • "Within chaos lies opportunity." ~ Shekinah, High Priestess of Vampryes 
  • "I learned fear can be overcome by faith; uncertainty can lead to new beginnings, and trepidation can be vanquished by confidence. Being Marked is truly about the magick of possibilities." ~ Shekinah

My commentary:
  • I didn't plan to buy this book, but when I found it for 50 cents, I decided to go ahead and check it out. 
  • The handbook is mentioned a ton of times in the regular book series. It is nice that the handbook reveals a little more information about the "House of Night" world and gives you images to go along with some of the symbols mentioned in the books.
  • Later in the normal book series, an advanced handbook is mentioned, so I wonder if there will be a follow-up at some point.
