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.

When a shocking death occurs in the walls of the House of Night, Zoey begins to have a strange feeling like something isn't right in her new home. She also, begins to have questioning thoughts about the High Priestess and her mentor Neferet. It's up to her to protect her friends and learn a few lessons about trust in this page turning chapter of Zoey's Story.
When I read Marked, which is the 1st book in this series I had high expectations for the 2nd book. But, I am saddened that I felt that the plot wasn't as good and exciting as it was in Marked. This book is alot more darker than the first, with tension and answered questions along the way. But, it did leave me wanting more.
