Betrayed by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast is the second novel in the House of Night series and it was great. The entire book was so suspenseful that I had to finish it immediately. Betrayed goes over the main parts that a reader may have missed from the first book, Marked, so that anyone can start reading the series without having read the first book. This is definitely a vampyre series worth reading, since it is so unique from other vampyre tales that you will enjoy its creativity.
Unlike the first book, Betrayed actually leaves the reader with suspense and curiosity as to what would happen in the next novel, Chosen. I liked how there were hints given in this novel, through the characters' actions as to what may be a problem in the next novel. Once you start approaching the end of the novel, you will hope that the novel could have been longer.
Zoey Redbird is getting used to the House of Night as the new high priestess in training. There is a new professor that will only be staying the year, Loren Blake, the vamp poet Laureate, who is gorgeous and seems to like her. Then there's Erik Night, the guy who Zoey is dating. And then there's her ex-boyfriend, Heath Luck, who she still seems to have feelings for. How will Zoey ever decide who she wants as her boyfriend?
There are high school boys that Zoey knew that are going missing and are being found dead with a loss of blood and multiple lacerations. Being chosen by the vampyre goddess Nyx, Zoey feels responsible to find out who or what is killing them. Discover the terrible secrets that are being hidden by people in the House of Night.
With paranormal fantasy, suspense, adventure, and some romance, what more could you ask for? I definitely want to continue the House of Night series, but I hope that the rest of the books in the series are released soon.
