Betrayed by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast

"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."

Book two of the House of Night series I'm happy to say that this series is ALMOST better than Twilight! The heroin Zoey Redbird, while she makes typical teenage bad judgment calls, isn't even HALF as whiny as Bella and actually has a lot more sense than Bella as well. :D I usually don't try to compair series like this but I would say the House of Night series is more realistic. The character interactions are sincere and you develop an instant hate or love for them. The situations she is put into are also more realistic and almost more adult which makes sense. The writing team of the books is a mother and daughter. The mother is a published romance book author so it makes a lot of sense. I am almost through reading the third book as I type this so that review will be coming later today.
