Book Description (from back cover):
Fledgling vampire Zoey Redbird has managed to settle in at the House of Night finishing school. She finally feels like she belongs, even gets chosen as the Leader of the Dark Daughters. Best of all, 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. Betrayed, the second book in the House of the Night series, is dark and sexy, as thrilling as it is utterly shocking.
After a night of reading Marked, I started Betrayed in the early hours of Saturday. I fell asleep part way through and woke to the phone ringing (my mother asking me to come by the house and rake leaves — now). Instead of leaving right away, I returned to reading, showered, read...and went to rake leaves when I'd finished 2 hours later (Shameful, I know). Guess it was lucky for my mother that I did't (and still don't for that matter) have the 3rd book around yet.
Anyway, I'm not a fan of the "or two" part of the blurb above. (Why do authors insist upon having multiple love interests? Drives me batty.) Otherwise, I enjoyed this book, and am looking foward (anxiously) to reading the next in the series.
