House of Night: Legacy is set between the first novels Marked and Betrayed, and contains the first five issues: Earth, Air, Water, Fire, and Spirit. Zoey Redbird is a fledging (a future vampyr), but she is different than the others as her mark is filled in, as she is destined to lead the Daughters of Darkness even though she just wants to be a normal teen. With the help of her friends and with the guidance of Nyx, she has to learn about the five elements - earth, air, water, fire, and spirit. And in the process she learns a few life lessons.
This mini-series fits perfectly as an in between tale during Zoey’s early days at the school. There is a prologue for those have not read the first novel where you can easily catch up on what is going on. I like some of the vampyr mythology that is thrown into each story, which is a step up compared to the laughable glittered Twilight vamps.
There is some amazing artwork in each issue, resembling some of the 80s style comics and anime, which gives Legacy a more cult feeling to it. Each story is well written and the dialogue is smart. I recommend Legacy to all House of Night fans.
