Betrayed, the second installment in the bestselling House of Night series, is dark and sexy, and as thrilling as it is utterly shocking.
Fledgling vampyre Zoey Redbird has managed to settle in at the House of Night. She’s come to terms with the vast powers the vampyre 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 publically 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.
Im so, so glad that I found this series. Its seriously one of the best series I've read since, dare I say it, Harry Potter! It reminds me so much of HP at times, with the whole boarding school situation and whatnot. I really, really like Zoey as the main character. She's so different from most of the other young adult books main protagonists. She's strong-willed, independent, fierce and brave. She's not afraid of her new found abilities, for the most part she openly embraces them. Unlike the Immortal series where Ever, the main character, is such a weak little wimp.
The plot in this book was better than the first with the author developing on from Zoey's sightings of "ghosts" in the first book. The first book mostly dealt with Zoey arriving at the House of Night and getting used to her new life and beating the school bully at her own game in the finale. In this book however the author delves futher into the whole House of Night series' world and its hidden dark side. I loved the development of some characters such as Heath, Stevie Rae and Damien. You really get to know them even better in this installment. Makes me long for the next book. Oh and love the whole sexual tension between Zoey and her three conquests! I know its a young adult book and all but can't wait til she gets it on with one of them!!...Continua
This series is quite interesting. Can be very sexual but done in a classy way. I found the second book in this series much better than the first, most likely because the characters and the story line was much more developed. The book was more complex, with additonal characters and plot lines, then the first. Looking forward to reading the next in the series!...Continua
