Books That Suck: Day Three: Betrayed by PC Cast and Kristen Cast

Even after her first month as a fledgling at The House of Night, Zoey Redbird's life still is as fast paced and hectic as ever. As the new leader of the Dark Daughters, she's responsible for turning it into a respectable and admirable club. Also, she seems to find herself with two boyfriends...with another guy sending her some mixed signals. On top of all of that, Zoey has been seeing some dark and mysterious creatures on the east wall. She wonders if it's all a trick of the mind, until human teenagers start disappearing...and winding up dead. Zoey will have to start facing the facts, especially after a shocking death in their midst reveals that what she has seen is no figment of her imagination...and what's truly horrifying is the identity of the person behind it all.

Betrayed picks up on all the suspense and thrill right where Marked left off. Full of twists and turns that flow fluidly and a continuation of excellent character development, Betrayed reveals more sinister plots and dastardly deeds that will leave readers reeling. The many normal teenager issues and feelings are melded with the supernatural happenings to create an adventurous and believable story. Though the world in which Zoey lives is unfamiliar, the Casts make the reader right at home with their smooth and inimitable writing style.
Check back tomorrow for a review of the third book in the series, Chosen.

I swear, everytime I see the "Books That Suck" part I always think that you're talking about bad books, and I was about to give you a piece of my mind when I saw Betrayed, but it lasted about a split second because I realized that the Books that Suck is all about Vampires :P Hehe.

One of the things I really liked about these books is that they don't rush through an entire year. They take place within a few weeks or months and is action packed throughout without breaks for mundane day to day stuff.

Very fun reads.
