Kayla and Heath- Zoey's best friend and ex-boyfriend from before she was Marked.
Stevie Rae- Zoey's Okie roommate at House of Night, friend
Erin and Shaunee- Zoey's first new friends. They call each other Twin, not because they are related but because they share the same soul (even a cat chose them both).
Damien- Zoey meets him when she meets Erin and Shaunee. He is an openly gay boy. Zoey and her friends have an open mind about being gay and I found that to be refreshing for a YA title, risky too. Damien is super smart, especially with vocabulary.
Dark Daughters and Aphrodite- These girls are supposed to be like the welcoming committee for the school and act as a sorority. At the moment they are led by Aphrodite, who is in training for becoming a Priestess. Aphrodite's gift is that she gets disturbingly accurate visions of the future. She doesn't always do the right thing because her nature is selfish and cruel. She hates humans...and Zoey.
Eric Night- Eric used to be involved with Aphrodite and Zoey first sees him when he is engaged in an awkward situation. He is a gifted actor and extremely good looking. Eric seems to connect with Zoey on a very spiritual level and wants to see where that leads them. He helps her when she needs it and accepts her friends.
What characters were your favorites? I found the characters to be well written and easy to connect with. Did you instantly dislike Aphrodite as much as I did or was it hard for you to engage with these younger people?
