Before becoming Zoey's favourite professor and the House of Night's powerful horse mistress, Lenobia was just a normal 16-year-old girl - but with enough problems to last a lifetime. In 1788, Lenobia's father places her on a ship bound for New Orleans. An evil bishop, skilled in Dark magic, makes the same journey. His appetite for beautiful young women forces Lenobia to remain hidden, but she secretly visits the ship's stables, where a handsome young man and his horses capture her attention. Can they make it to the New World before the bishop discovers her true identity and a powerful evil breaks loose? And will Lenobia follow her heart, even if it puts lives at risk?

Dare to enter the HOUSE OF NIGHT, the phenomenal #1 New York Times bestselling young adult series by P. C. Cast and Kristin Cast, with this complete collection of all four novellas! DRAGON'S OATH: In the early 19th century, Dragon Lankford is a troublesome, yet talented human teen. When he is Marked onboard a ship to America, he is saved from sure death by a Son of Erebus who sees his potential. At the Kansas City House of Night, Dragon commences his own journey towards becoming a fierce fencing master—but when a threat emerges for the House of Night, Dragon is pulled into the middle. His uncanny fighting skills make him a powerful fledgling, but is he strong enough to ward off this new darkness? Will his choices save the woman he cares for—or destroy them all? LENOBIA'S VOW: 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. NEFERET'S CURSE: Neferet, the Tulsa House of Night's darkly seductive High Priestess, wasn't always a powerful vampyre, but she has always been beautiful. Raised in turn-of-the-century Chicago in a motherless home, her beauty makes her the prey of unwanted attention and abuse, leaving her with wounds that will never heal—and a Darkness that will eventually need to find its way out. When she's Marked and gains strength, both physical and magickal, she turns her anger into power and looks for a way to wreak vengeance. KALONA'S FALL: From the Sun and from the Moon, two winged brothers are born: golden Erebus, playmate and friend, and mysterious Kalona, Warrior and lover, companions of the Goddess Nyx. From the first, Nyx loves them both deeply, though differently; but for Kalona, Nyx's nights are not enough. Ruled by anger and jealousy of his brother, and consumed by his love for his Goddess, Kalona seeks the power to prove his worth, and to claim once and for all that Nyx eternally belongs to him—all while Darkness stirs, waiting for its chance...
