Betrayed (House of Night Book 2) By P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast - Book Review

Betrayed (House of Night, #2)Betrayed by P.C. Cast
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Zoey Redbird is the most powerful vampyre fledgling the House of Night has ever seen.
She has been touched by Nyx(The Goddess of Night.) It's clear by Zoey's accelerated rate of change and ever growing abilities that she is meant for something profound. She has lots to deal with. Zoey even took over the leadership of the Dark Sisters and Sons, and is determined to change the school organization from and elitist clique to a group with more meaning, values and substance. She is starting to get more comfortable in her skin and things are getting a little easier to deal with. But trouble is just around the corner. Zoey’s strength is about to be tested, yet again. In new, and very terrible ways. She had to learn to deal with soul deep sadness, deal with betrayal that cuts to the bone, and try to keep a promise that may be impossible to do.

Yes, Zoey has some problems with people of “faith” (but the ones in here are more like a cult to me) but you need to realize, this is a STORY, where the situations are vastly different than our world, so people who knock this series because of that, and think because she refer’s to her stepdad as step loser, and he is a loser, that their teen should not read it, need to realize, it’s a BOOK. Teens are not dumb, they know the difference, and to me, this is being a typical teen. It really is. I see bad reviews about people thinking Zoey is acting like a slut, well, she is a 16 year old girl, with LOTS of stuff going on in her world. Yes, she makes bad decisions, BUT she learns from them. She also cares so much for her human boyfriend, Heath, even though she is told to stay away from him, and she cares for Erik too, and is very honest with him. I give her credit for that. Then of course she has all that other stuff to deal with on top of it.

I highly recommend this book, its different than your usual vampire books, has a fresh new twist on it. My daughter who was 17 when she read the first few in series, loved it, and couldn’t wait to get the rest of them, but had to wait. She is older now, and still loves them, as do I.
Give it a chance, they are fun, suspenseful, and easy to read.
Be sure to read Marked first, then this one.
