Betrayed (House of Night #2)
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: H...more

It had a great concept: a vampire finishing school. Say it to yourself a few times. Vampire. Finishing. School. I envisioned a dark mirror of Hogwarts, something that would feed my irrational* obsession with boarding schools while twisting it down new, hopefully black-humor-laden pathways.
This was not the book I got, but I'm flexible. What I got was a flat, contrived exercise in demonstrating the problems of YA writing, fantasy writing, and romance writing.

Zoey has taken over as the head of the Daughters of Darkness, and wants to make it into something akin to a service club like you find at other schools. She researches ways to change the rituals into something positive and inclusi ...more
I even added a whole new shelf dedicated to the "worst-reads-ever." Like I said in my review of Marked, "the authors are trying too hard to be hip" and it's not being pulled off very well. Plus, a thesaurus can work miracles to spruce up any writing.
I gave this book two stars, because the story started to get more interesting. However, I'm not ...more
I just can't be bothered with the purile writing style, pathetic 'slut/ho/gay' references, allusions to current celebrities, double standards, etc. Eg. 3 boys on the go at once and she can't decide on one but she thinks nearly every other girl ...more
Great second edition to the House of Night series..I liked the first book but this book was even better in my opinion. Mostly because your already settled with the characters and new locations so you get into it more.Events in Betrayed continue from about month after the events in Marked (the first book in this series) finished.The book is narrated in first person by sixteen-year old Zoey a fledgling vampyre who has been gifted with unusual powers by the vampyre goddess Nyx. Betrayed sees ...more
When I started reading this book, I swore it was a book that couldn’t pique my fancy. I was overly bored and couldn’t flip anymore pages. I thought the writing was for too-young adults. I thought I would be generous and give it two stars.
But dang, I am eating what I said.
Betrayed (House of Night #2) by P.C and Kristin Cast started out slow, but, somewhere in the middle, I began liking the book. I can’t point to the exact page, but somewhere, things were becoming ...more
Also The writing is pitiful.
So here's the deal:
"Ohh! I see betrayed! Should I read it?"
"Maybe I should, what if it turns out to be better?"
"But what if it sucks? Maybe I should not..."
*10 minutes later...*
"Okay, okay! I am reading this!"
Now here's the real story:
Zoey thinks she's the most amazing person in this world.
Half of this book is about Zoey waiting for her freaking Superman, Eric. And when he finally arrives, he does N-O-T-H-I-N-G ...more
The main character, super special, gifted, popular, admired and generally perfect, newly- turned-vampire Zoey, is torn between three men (two boys and a man to be exact…).
1. Her uber-cute human ex-boyfriend Heath (Ohmygoodness!) whose - I quote - bulge in the pants she finds herself rubbing.
2. Her fellow vampire and uber-handsome current boyfriend Erik (Ohmydearsweetlord) whom the entire school considers to be her boyfriend but she is not really sure because even though they’ve dated a few times ...more
I have a couple of things that really make me mad:
Brown pop is the first. The term "brown pop" is used several times. Every time I see "brown pop" I think, brown poop. It's childish, I know; however, that is exactly what I first think every time the main character wants a drink. Perhaps its a issue wi ...more
Also, if I recall correctly, Zoey used to call Aphrodite & CO sluts in the first novel. In this book, Zoey is involved with no less than THREE guys. At once. Talk ab ...more
I think my local library hates me. There are some books I've been waiting for months to get my hands on and then there's others like P.C. and Kristin Cast's Betrayed that come into my box almost instantaneously-oh, the humanity.
The good thing though is that I'm on Spring Break and had nothing to do this weekend other than babysit my father (long story short he decided to climb up a tree to rescued his crashed RC airplane and ended up breaking his foot). Wh ...more
-Aphrodite. Again, she was my favorite character in the book, and I found the way the rest of the characters treated her disgusting. Aphrodite’s the only character I had sympathy for throughout the entire first two books, and she will probably stay the only character I have sympathy for. She’s the only real character. She speaks her mind, she makes others listen to her, and she has a gift that could be considered a terrible burden, one that she has to deal with by herself.

"You deserve to be shown respect," Damien said in his school-teacher voice. "You're the only third former ever to have been made leader of the Dark Daughters and the only fledgling or vampyre in history who has shown an affinity for all five of the elements."
"Face it, Z," Shaunee said around a bite of salad while she gestured at me with her fork.
"You're special." Erin finished for her (as usual).
I am going to go ahead and admit something right now: I didn't go into Betrayed with high expectati ...more
After I finished this
And let me tell you, it could have been a good book. It could have been a story about a strong, independent heroine who suddenly became a vampire, who had to adapt to her new life and let go of her prejustice towards vampires. It could have been a story about a vampire politican who fights for rights of vampires (this may or may not be a character f ...more
Ahhh so many memories flooded back when re-reading this book!
I'm really getting back into the series.
My aim for this year is to finish it finally.
I remember being so obsessed years ago.
This book has loss and betrayal involved.
Zoe does annoy me with her constant hoe-ness.
She needs to just pick a guy and stay with them!!
This series is very hit and miss with a lot of people.
Personally I love it as it's fun, the characters are awesome and it's oddly addictive.
Can't wait to re-read ...more
Go check out my Betrayed review!
The exciting sequel to Marked! This one is exciting for a few reasons. There's a lot of action, it gets extremely steamy, and it delves a little more into the vampyre world and learn so much more stuff. In this book, the series really starts moving and setting everything up for later books. Also, in this book, a few of the things I know happened from my first time reading happened, so it's nice getting some clarity on my vague memories. ...more
