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.

The story is reasonable. There was too much whining about the love life of Zoey.Some characters in this book are nice but zoey isn't one of them. I really don't like her. She's very shallow and judgmental.
I did enjoy this one more than book one. The writing isn't the best and there are some stereotypical wordings in these books that I'm not fond of. But I like the humor and it's one of those guilty pleasures. It's obvious why teens may like this supernatural vampire series. Filled with romance, vampi...
I have to get something off my chest right away. Zoey is a hypocrite. Yes, she is. How can she go around calling other girls sluts when she's hooking up in some way or another with three different guys? Seriously? "I don't know how these ho's with ten guys do it?" Hello! You're juggling three. Whate...
