Betrayed (House of Night #2) by P.C. & Kristin Cast

Summary from Goodreads

All any of us could talk about was Chris's disappearance and how bizarre it was that he had last been seen so close to the House of Night. I didn't want to believe it. But everything inside me said that the kid would be found, but he'd be found dead...

Things seem to be going pretty well for Zoey Redbird. She's settled in at the House of Night finishing school and is coming to terms with her incredible new powers. It all seems too good to be true. And guess what?

Someone has begun murdering human teenagers, and all evidence points to the vampyres at Zoey's school. Which means her first assignment as the leader of the Dark Daughters is finding out which one of her classmates or - gulp - teachers is a killer.

Sigh. And she thought her boyfriends (yes: plural) were going to be her biggest problem this year...

My Review

Betrayed is the second instalment in the House of Night series and I think the tone just got a whole lot darker and a lot more dangerous!

Zoey has hardly had any time to adjust to her new life as only the most powerful fledgling ever before things get turned upside down again. She sort of finds herself in a bit of a tricky love situation, with not 1 but 3 people in her affections. Her new powers are also giving off a warning about someone she thought she could trust!

I actually really enjoyed the 3 love interests in the storyline, because I really felt sorry for poor Zoey and I think we got to see what she was made of. I also loved the sinister turn the storyline took, Zoey was left not knowing who or what to trust. She needs to be more vigilant that ever....

The lead up to the ending had me on the very edge of my seat! The action and revelations were brilliant - the ending itself was faultless!

Betrayed is a mysterious thrill ride that really stepped it up a notch from Marked! It is written fantastically and will have readers everywhere unable to put it down. The characters are developing beautifully and I just can't wait to see where I will be taken next....

4.5 / 5 Stars!
