This is the third in the series which follows, Zoey, Erik, Erin, Shaunee, Damien and Jack as they are adapting to their time at House of Night.  Zoey spends so much time keeping things from her friends, for fear of their safety and acceptance.  Erik has a feeling something is up but she keeps reassuring him that is not the case.  Zoey also finds common ground with Aphrodite, the girl she had de-throwned in the first book Marked.  Who knows Zoey is making mistakes but also knows what it is like to have things you can't tell everyone.  Someone is killing the adult vampyre's.  Neferet has decide to launch an attack against the humans.  

Meanwhile Zoey become subject to a nasty affair and imprinting that backfires on her.  What she thinks is love is anything but.  Crushed and hurt she finds herself with two allies Aphrodite and Stevie Rae.  Everyone else has abandoned her due to her choices.

I enjoyed this book, and it felt more real.  I really felt bad for Zoey in certain parts of this story.  Like they were my friends mad at me.  It was really emotional this story.  Definitely  a great story and series.  I think Kristin adds a touch too it by being younger author.  To allow the teen angst to be so real, and so painful.  I rate this 5 cupss as the series goes on I'm more and more hooked and wondering when the bad guy will get theirs.  Great job Girls keep it up!  You never cease to amaze me.

This book takes off where Marked left off.  Having Zoey showed the true colors of Aphrodite, and getting her de-throned. Zoey is now the head of the Dark Daughters and Sons, as well as a high priestess in training.  Of course Zoey didn't desire to be head of the Dark Daughters and Sons so she is feeling some guilt about taking that away from Aphrodite.   Her boyfriend Erik is doing a monologue for a good part of the book and is absent from the House of Night, so she ends up meeting Loren Blake who is a part time professor, and he seems very interested in the young fledgling.  Zoey finds herself keeping up with three different men, Loren, Erik and of course Heath, her human boyfriend/ex-boyfriend.  One of the main characters doesn't adapt to the change well and Zoey spends much time feeling horrible over it and like her life can't continue.  Her friends try to cheer her up, even though that seems impossible.  And Zoey starts to question her mentors true intentions.

I really enjoy this series as it's refreshing to have a main character who deals with hurt and pain, to know that not everything is fun and games.  Really gives a depth to her.  Although I wish at least on the man front that she would pick on or at least if she is having so many issues to dump them all and go back to scratch.  I rate this book 4 cups as it has some slow parts and then picks up when you find yourself at the end of the story.

This is the third book in the series, we find Chloe, Simon, Derek and Tori have been on the run for what seems like forever.  They have thought allies are that allies and now it turns out there were just different levels of backstabbing.  Chloe and the others are becoming more in control of their super powers.  There was a lot more action in this story then the others.  Finally certain people are able to get their payback to the Edison Group like Tori, who's mother is a big part of the Edison Group.  The boys get reconnected with their father.  I really enjoyed this book, and series so far.  Showed that the pretty girl didn't have to wind up with the cute boy, and that sometimes not everything is what it seems.  And to not underestimate the power of kids.

I can't wait to see what comes next.  I rate this 5 cups cause it left me running through the book to see how it ended.  Definitely held my attention for great lengths.  I totally recommend this book to anyone and everyone.  Anyone would be able to connect with any of the main characters.

When we left Chloe she had been caught by the Edison Group, and so much has been learned.  We found out that Chloe, Simon, Tori, Rae and Derek were part of kids that were experimented on and given unusual powers.  Most of this book is spent with Chloe, Simon, Tori and Derek on the run from the Edison Group with the help of Liz, who's now a ghost at the hands of the Edison Group.  Having been betrayed by Rae, who seems to accept the stories she's been sold.  The other four aren't, and they are angry.

This book was good as you learned more about what these kids are having done to them.  The adults seem well slow at best for catching the kids, these kids are always one step ahead of them.  They also find a semi-ali in Andrew who was a ex-worker of the Edison Group who's formed a group to go against the Edison Group.  Of course the kids are skeptical of what Andrew's plan or intention really is.  

Lots of action and of course with Chloe lots of dead people rising.  I can't wait to read the next one in the series.

I rate this four cups, as it would be nice if they could get along a little better with each other.  And I can't help but wonder what Tori's true intention is.  What did you think of this one?

What happens when you are marked and now that you can't live a normal life?  Well Zoey knows that her only rescue of being marked is to get to the house of night.  Of course that is easier said then done.  As she goes home and her stepfather prepares to have religion shoved down her throat to some how save her.  So she runs to her Grandmother who knows what Zoey needs.  She takes her to the House of Night.  Where Zoey will get guidance, loving friends, and the education she needs while she waits to see if her body will accept the change or not.

I really liked this book as it went beyond the typical vampire book, which doesn't deal much with the change that happens when one gets marked, or in some stories bitten.  I like how she had to overcome some obstacles.  If it was too easy for her to fit in then what kind of story would it be?

There really wasn't much I didn't enjoy about the book you had your bully, and your hero, and of course there is always a cute boy to attract the heroine.  I especially like Zoey's mentor.  There are times she sounds like a mentor that a lot of people wouldn't mind calling mom.

I think P.C. Cast hit on something and I think what makes the series extra special is that she wrote it with her daughter Kristin Cast, which must be such a great thing.  Cause many years from now they will be able to sit back and recall when they wrote a series that caught an audience.

I give this 5 cups.  It's great and even adults can read it and can recall identifying with atlas one character if not more.  I can't wait to start Betrayed.
