Betrayed, the second installment in the bestselling House of Night series from P. C. Cast and Kristin Cast, 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. 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.

Praise for Betrayed

Twilight meets Harry Potter... Zoey Redbird... is basically the most relatable vampire -- sorry, fledgling vampyre--I've ever read about.” —MTV.com on The House of Night series

“The Cast and Cast team is back and stirring up deep trouble in their beguiling supernatural world….The issues faced by these teens are not child's play, and the stakes are life and death. This is extremely craveable reading!” —RT Book Reviews (4.5 stars)

“This highly addicting series offers a unique twist on the standard vampyre story and is sure to please a wide variety of readers.

“It does not matter if you are male or female, this series will enthrall you...Authors P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast are a dangerous writing duo with poisonous pens. Highly recommended.” —Huntress Reviews
