“The trials of growing up are presented in the new and original context of a vampire society, and they're woven into a thoroughly entertaining story....This promises to be a highly addictive series.” ―Romantic Times (four and a half stars) on Marked
From the Inside Flap
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.--This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Zoey's Imprint with Heath remains and she still finds herself caring for the mortal teenager. The mutual attraction between Z and Erik, also a fledgling, remains as well. Yet Zoey is finding herself intrigued by Loren Blake as well. Loren is a part-time, temporary professor (of poetry class) at the academy. Zoey is sure he cannot be more than five or six years older than she, however, relationships between students and teachers are prohibited.
Zoey is about to conduct her first Full Moon Ritual as leader of the Dark Daughters and Sons. Zoey's life is full and she has little alone time for herself. It soon becomes apparent that she better make some time for a new problem. People Zoey knew from her prior human life are disappearing. When and where their bodies are eventually found, as well as the cause of deaths, point to the House of Night. To save all the humans and vampyres she cares for, Zoey must face a betrayal that could break her heart, if not her very soul. May Nyx protect her!
***** If you have not read the first book, MARKED, then I highly suggest you do so before beginning this title. If you do not, you will still be able to understand what is going on; however, you will not be privy to some references of Zoey's adventurous past and markings. Believe me when I say this series could be categorized as either Young Adult or Fantasy. It does not matter if you are male or female, this series will enthrall you against your will. Authors P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast are a dangerous writing duo with poisonous pens. Highly recommended. *****

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.
-Authors' attempts to "catch up" new readers on content of previous book was VERY annoying.
-Story laced with "tidbits" that will prompt further reading.
These books are honestly addicting! I hope the Casts are fast writers!
Zoey's love life is also getting complicated. Erik and Heath still vying for Zoey but the new Vapyre Poet Laureate, Loren is showing an interest too. Heath has a bigger role in this book as he's imprinted to Zoey but he also gets into some trouble as well. I'm sure things will get even more complicated as the series progresses. Zoey's friends are the best. Though they can get annoying at times in the end they are on her side and come to her help when she needs them. Zoey and Stevie Rae are especially close friends so I was sad to see what happened to Stevie Rae. Looking back there were signs that Stevie Rae was getting sick but it was still surprising
I noticed the authors kept retelling parts from the first book. I guess its for the benefit of those who haven't read the first book or have forgotten the storylines. I found it frustrating at times cause I just wanted to get on with the story.
There's never a boring moment for Zoey at the House of Night. There are still so many unanswered questions about Stevie Rae, Neferet and so much more.
