    The House of Night is no ordinary school—and not just because it's for vampyres. It's a place where magic, religion, folklore, and mythology from multiple traditions merry meet and meld to create something incredible and new.

    In Nyx in the House of Night—a 2-color illustrated companion to the House of Night series—some of your favorite YA authors, plus a few experts, help you navigate the influences behind the House of Night series in a guide that would get even Damien's seal of approval.

    Travel with P.C. Cast as she gets her first tattoo in Ireland, climbs the ruins of Sgiach's castle, and discovers the lore that led to the Isle of Skye vampyres. Read Kristin Cast's defense of women in history and mythology who, like Zoey, have made a practice of juggling multiple men. Sit in on a vampyre lecture by Bryan Lankford, the real-life basis for House of Night instructor Dragon Lankford, on the parallels between Wiccan and vampyre circle rituals. Tour Tulsa's House of Night landmarks with local Amy H. Sturgis.

    Plus:

    •Karen Mahoney on Nyx and other goddesses of the night
    •John Edgar Browning on vampires in folklore, fiction, and reality
    •Jana Oliver on tattoos and other Marks
    •Ellen Steiber on feline familiars
    •Yasmine Galenorn on priestesses and goddess worship
    •Jordon Dane on Zoey's Cherokee heritage
    •Jeri Smith-Ready on the Raven Mockers and Kalona's less than heavenly inspiration
    •Christine Zika on the connection between Nyx and the Virgin Mary
    •Triniy Faegen on the Greek version of the Otherworld

    Nyx in the House of Night also includes an appendix of character names that reveals the myth behind Zoey's last name, which House of Night cats have ties to Camelot, Egypt, and Middle-earth, and more!
