Warning: Do not try to read this book if you haven't read Marked.
We rejoin Zoey Redbird as she takes her place as the leader of the Dark Daughters. She finally feels like she belongs at the House of Night. While it is overwhelming to be chosen by the Goddess Nyx, she is learning to follow her instincts. There are humans Zoey knows are dying and it looks as though someone in the House of Night is responsible. Will Zoey find out who is responsible and stop them before more humans and fledglings die?
A lot goes on in this book. We get reacquainted with Zoey's friends and discover a few new ones. We learn that an enemy hides in plain sight. There could possibly be a new love interest on the horizon. There is death and loss, hope and strength.
I absolutely loved this book!!!! As soon as I finished I wanted the next one but unfortunately it doesn't come out until next year. I tore through Betrayed and had a hard time putting it down to go do mundane things. Some would find it hard to write the sequel to a great book like Marked, but the Cast women obviously didn't have that problem. I laughed, sighed, and definitely cried. I thought that I knew where this series was headed but the authors took me completely by surprise.
Congrats to P.C. and Kristin Cast, on a fantastic job. Bring on Chosen!
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.
