Oh, this book gets better each time I read it. Cast has engulfed my soul with the characters and the elements. I cried and cried and cried. I laughed and smiled as each character evolved into their true forms. ( )

Tragedies, mysteries, teen banter and romance. I have to say, that I am beginning to enjoy the voice. No offense, but it's just an annoying friend you get use to. Too many cliches and at first glance the writing might seem poor/lazy; I guess after consuming oodles of high-brow prose, one might forget the magic of simplicity. But after a while you fall in love with Zoey Redbird and it's like conversation with an old friend. P.C Cast doesn't write to impress but to entertain. And I respect that very much. It's not stiff or forced. Pretentious. The pages come to life with scenes that are as easy to read as imagine. I was a bit hard on the first book, but now I am apologetic. This story is touching and relatable. Comical, even though it's 100% cocoa dark. ( )

For the life of me I have no idea how a book that could annoy me so much could also make me want to read the next in the series.

What I Didn't Like: My big issues with this book/series are.... The love quadrangle and Zoey our heroine is annoying. Somehow she is so incredibly beautiful that she not only has a boyfriend but an ex that loves her and wont leave her alone and now she has a teacher who seems to like her. That one is my big ICK issue. It's one of the reasons I stopped watching Pretty Little Liars.

The lack of tying up loose ends happened again in this book as it did in the first one. I hate dangling bits that carry over from book to book to book. It feels like a marketing ploy to get us to keep reading.

Also, two of Zoey's friends are known as the Twins. They are so close to each other they think alike, talk alike and finish each others sentences. My issue is that they refer to each other as Twin so every other sentence of dialogue says something along the lines of "You said it, Twin!" It got really repetitive.

The Good(?) Stuff: The good stuff is minimal, unfortunately. I think the elemental affinities to Water, Earth, Fire, Air and Spirit are interesting and I'm glad Zoey is now not the only one with them that we've seen. I like the idea of Zoey's abilities and her special connection to the Goddess Nyx. I also like there are several characters with more depth than they appear. Enemies could become friends and some friends could prove to be down right evil.

In a Nutshell: How the series will resolve what is going on with the children who do not turn but die and the ultimate baddie who is responsible is actually intriguing so I'll move on to the 3rd book but I'm not looking forward to the potential student/teacher love-fest that was hinted at. ( )

Again I really liked this story, from the last book we continue in Zoey's first months at the House of Night and even more stuff happens. Her roommate dies, her mentor and the High Priestess is corrupt and she is getting along with her once arch-enemy Aphordite.

Betrayed begins where we left off in book 1 with Zoey taking over the Dark Daughters, her new responsibilities have her not seeing the obvious as Stevie Rae begins to get sick. This book is a little depressing and also VERY angsty as Zoey tries to figure out who she wants to date. Reading the next one. ( )

We would like to dedicate this book to (Aunty) Sherry Rowland, friend and publicist. Thank you, Sher, for taking care of us. Even when we're high maintenance and annoying (and especially when you give us "treaties"). We heart you very much.

Book 2 of the 'House of Night' series -- Zoey Redbird has an unusual life. Just recently she was Marked by Nyx, the goddess of night, to become a vampyre. But Nyx has also given Zoey unprecedented gifts that set her apart from every other vampyre before her. Already struggling to adapt to her new world, she realizes that something isn't quite right at the school, but the one person she should be able to trust the most seems to be the greatest danger.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312360282, Paperback)

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.
