Review on "Betrayed" second book in the House of Night novels by P.C. and Kristin Cast.


Fledgling vampire Zoey Redbird has managed to settle in at the House of Night. She’s come to terms with the vast powers the vampire goddess, Nyx, has given her, and is getting a handle on being the new Leader of the Dark Daughters, the school’s most elite group. Best of all, Zoey’s made some new friends and she finally feels like she belongs--like she really fits in. She actually has a boyfriend…or two. And despite the best efforts of her mother and step-loser John to humiliate her publicly during parent visitation, she’s earned the respect of her professors and High Priestess, Neferet.

Then the unthinkable happens: human teenagers are being killed, and all the evidence points to the House of Night, straining human-vamp tensions in Tulsa to a breaking point. While danger stalks the humans from Zoey’s old life, she finds herself drawn into an intoxicating forbidden flirtation that threatens to distract her from the growing crisis. Then, when she needs her new friends the most, death strikes the House of Night. Too late, Zoey begins to realize that the very powers that make her so unique might also threaten those she loves, and she must find the courage to face a betrayal that could break her heart, her soul, and jeopardize the very fabric of her world.

Raven Book Worm Review:

This series just gets more and more thrilling with each read! By the second novel you have to come to know and love Zoey and her great friends. This book is definitely a page turner. Very well written and keeps the pace up so that you just devour the book. Zoey's life starts to become even more tightly woven with trying to adjust to her change, deal with the special gifts she has been given and then her love life as well. Now she is in a position of leadership as well and has to learn how to lead a group when she is just a new fledgling. Once again a brilliantly written read.

Exciting Journey,
