218. Betrayed by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast...

betrayedAbout the book:
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.

drey's thoughts:
Oh, Zoey. She's taken over the Daughters of the Dark now, and is leading them in a new direction. And so all is well with her world. Or is it? After all, she's going out with the hottest fledgling on campus. But she's still Imprinted with her human boyfriend, Heath. And then, one of the (if not the) hottest vamp, like, ever, flirts with her.

Now, if you've been 'round here for a while, you'll know that this is where I say, Zoey, girl, keep your head on your shoulders. You already have a 2-boyfriend problem, what are you doing flirting back with an older, adult vampire? Seriously??

And if boy trouble isn't enough to mess with her mind, some of the boys she used to know get killed, and it looks like vamps did it. When Heath goes missing, I'm like, um, girl, someone's out to get you in trouble. The question is, who? And how? And then (yes, there's more), her best-friend-in-the-whole-place dies. Rough time for the new girl, eh?

Zoey grows up a little in places, and doesn't in others, which is pretty normal for a teenager, even one who's super-blessed by her goddess... But she doesn't do anything here to turn me off of her (except for flirting back with the "old" dude), and she does try to do the right thing. So far this series hasn't disappointed.
