I really enjoyed book 1, Marked, I thought it had some great lessons for teenagers that everyone faces. But what I found really intriguing is that the lessons are written in a manner that does not scream hey you, this is what you should do but are couched in a fun fast paced story that teenaged girls will enjoy.
In Betrayed the lessons are continued, I thought the ones in this book were better than in Marked (all about being different and not giving into what the in crowd when you know they are wrong). This book explores what it feels like to like more than one boy at a time, and how one should appropriately handle it. Once again it does not scream or preach the correct action. Betrayed also lets the reader in on the fact that not everyone is who they appear and how to guard yourself against this.
The hardest lesson this book looks into is the loss of a loved one. This particular story line (lesson) looks like it will be continued into book three which I am very anxious to read.
All I can is that I love this book. I do not envy Zoey at all for all the things she has to deal with at such a young age...when i was that age I had to worry about the next spirit day. I love that she is so young yet so mature (at times) in the way she tries to rationalize with her self. Can't wait for the next one.
The mother daughter writing team has really hit a homerun. Now that the main characters are coming into their own special talents the book and series has just got more interesting. ROMANCE:Even though this is a YA series there is still a very powerful love triangle with the possiblity of having a 3rd love interest. NOt a dull moment for Zoey Redbird. A very good series I would reccommend to anyone.
This book is classified as young adult. It deals with teenagers going through the "change" to become vampyres. I am far from being a young adult, but the characters are very endearing, and I find myself having trouble putting the book down. This is the second book of the series, and it is as good, if not better, than the first.
I liked this book much better than book one (Marked). Liking this series much more than I thought I would. It's the type that stays with you even when you are not reading, making you want to get back to your book! Just started book 3 (Chosen).
