Summary: 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

This book was much better than the first one (you can see my review here) and I really enjoyed reading it.
The characters were much developed and I was able to relate to them in a way that I couldn't in the first book.
As any series book this one shows us new facets from already known characters, unfortunately some of these revelations were sometimes easily excpected.
The plot is better than in Marked (the first book of the series) but some of the twists are very predictable. This book was much more exciting to read than the first because there is more mystery and strong feelings.
In this book Zoey's life becomes more complicated which allowed the authors to create funny moments and sad moments.
Overall I liked this book and I can't wait to read the third one, but I would enjoyed it much more if I could not guess the next event.
