I did it again
Betrayed by P.C. Cast & 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.
And one half
After reading book one in the series I could not stop my curiosity and needed to read a little more of the story, and with the exception of some plot repetition and the silly words the main character uses, I did enjoy the read. When it ended I liked imagining the possibilities and direction the series seemed to be taking, but from what I have gathered from many others, the promise does not deliver in future books...so I am going to save my money and time and part ways. I have a juicy TBR list that I am itching to get at, so no sense in going for the mediocre read.
