"A great journey... A new love... A dark secret revealed. Evreux, France, 1788: Before she is Zoey's favorite professor and the House of Night's powerful horse mistress... Lenobia is just a normal 16-year-old girl - with enough problems to last a lifetime. As the illegitimate daughter of a powerful baron, she has never quite belonged, and instead has to watch her spoiled half-sister, Cecile, get anything she wants. As if that's not enough, her remarkable beauty draws unwanted attention wherever she goes. For once, she would like to just fit in. But when fate intervenes, Lenobia suddenly finds herself surrounded by other girls, on a ship bound for New Orleans, where they will be married off to the city's richest Frenchmen. And they're not alone.... An evil bishop who is skilled in Dark magic makes the same journey. His appetite for lovely young women makes him dangerous - most of all to Lenobia, who caught his eye back in France. So she remains hidden, making secret visits to the ship's stables, where a handsome young man and his beautiful Percheron horses soon capture her attention. Will they make it to land 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? Find out more about one of your favorite professors in the next heart-thumping House of Night Novella"--
"The House of Night is an international publishing sensation; with almost 12 million books in print, and an incredible 120 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list, the series has taken the world by storm. Now, the excitement continues as the Cast mother-daughter duo shares the back stories of a few of the House of Night's most important - and mysterious - characters. The second of the House of Night Novellas brings us Lenobia, the strong, beautiful horseback riding instructor, who guides Zoey through some of her darkest hours, and has a dark secret buried in her own past... 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"--

It is nice to get a better picture of instructors at House of night. Lenobia especially has had a sad beginning. I enjoyed the book

I liked this book better than Dragon's Oath. I love how all these books show how characters in the House of Night became the way they did. This book was sad and showed us why Lenobia doesn't want to date another human.
