Review: Betrayed by P.C. & Kristen Cast

SPOILER ALERT: If you haven’t read the other House of Nights books you should hold off on reading this review!
“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. Best of all, Zoey finally feels like she belongs—like she really fits in. She actually has a boyfriend…or two. Then the unthinkable happens: Human teenagers are being killed, and all the evidence points to the House of Night. While danger stalks the humans from Zoey's old life, she begins to realize that the very powers that make her so unique might also threaten those she loves. Then, when she needs her new friends the most, death strikes the House of Night, and Zoey must find the courage to face a betrayal that could break her heart, her soul, and jeopardize the very fabric of her world.”

With the ninth House of Night book just coming out a little over a month ago, I do believe it’s time our blog started getting caught up. With that said, here’s my review on book two, Betrayed.  If you haven’t read book one, Marked then let it be known (again), THERE ARE SPOILERS.

Zoey Redbird is finally settling in at the House of Night.  She has a new great group of friends that are almost equally as gifted as she is.  She has a mega hottie for a boyfriend and has become the leader of the Dark Daughters.  Everything is falling into place.  That is until Loren Blake, a full vampire, teacher, and poet starts taking a special interest in her.  On top of that weirdness, Neferet, her mentor and the high priestess is off, Heath, her human ex-boyfriend, accidently became her consort, her mom and step-loser came to visiting day and ruined it, and at the end of her first Dark Daughter ritual her best friend and roommate, Stevie Rae, rejects the change and dies.  There has also been local deaths that are pointing back to the House of Night.  Now the only person that Zoey has on her side is Aphrodite, the biggest bitch in the school.

I Rate This Book:

I first read the house of night series a few summers ago while I was life guarding.  They were great summer books.  They’re also fast reads.  I flew through the first six books and have reread them a few times since.  Something that I like in these books is that after the first few the books change point of views several times.  I also like that there are always new characters being introduced, so even though there are multiple books it still keeps in interesting without people getting all jumbled up and confused.

The House of Night Series is written by P.C. and Kristen Cast.  P.C. cast has written several series and she has received several awards for them.  Kristin Cast is P.C.’s daughter and has written a few other series herself.  She currently goes to college in Oklahoma, where they both live.  To learn more visit
