Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 10 Up—This installment picks up exactly where Betrayed (St. Martin's, 2007) left off. Zoey Redbird, leader of the Dark Daughters and vampyre fledgling extraordinaire, has discovered some mysterious and disturbing events occurring at her vampyre finishing school. Her ex-roommate and best friend, Stevie Rae, is "undead" and only due to Zoey's love and belief that she still possesses some humanity has Stevie Rae not become a true monster. Zoey must quickly find a way to reverse what has been done to her before it is too late. To complicate matters, Zoey is forced to keep this a secret from her friends and has been betrayed by her mentor and advisor, Neferet. Zoey knows that Neferet is behind the creation of these "undead" creatures and is not at all what she seems. For help, she turns to her rival, Aphrodite, who becomes her confidante and partner in crime. Horror strikes the House of Night when two professors end up brutally murdered. Cast takes the series up a notch with this installment, and readers will be on the edge of their seats waiting for its continuation. This book is a must for any library with a vampire following—but it does contain explicit language and sexual situations.—Donna Rosenblum, Floral Park Memorial High School, NY

“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.” ―Romantic Times (4 ½ stars) on Betrayed

The premise of the series is quite interesting though Zoey is probably one of the biggest and most annoying Mary Sue's in fiction right now. (Think Bella Swan sue but even more blatant...and yeah, I didn't think that was possible either.)

From the moment Zoey has a dream in which a *goddess* basically tells her how awesome and unique she is, I knew it was going to be one of those books (Read: published fanfic)

And my god do these ladies try to make sure that we know how special Zoey is. As if the super pretty, super sparkly facial tattoos weren't enough...almost everybody she meets tells her how awesome, powerful and pretty she is (including the ever original Hottest Guy At School) and she manages to dethrone the one person who doesn't fall simpering at her feet the moment she walks through the door.

But it's this book when everything starts to really fall apart.

Let's imagine that this book was written from a male perspective and it was I dunno, all about Joey.

Joey hanging with his friends. Joey stringing along his high school girlfriend. Joey making out with his other girlfriend. 16/17 yr old Joey sleeping with his teacher after sneaking around behind his other two girlfriends backs with her....

Uh hello five star reviews....where did you all go? It would be pretty hard to care about a cheating player like Joey, wouldn't it?

Overall, it's really hard to care about or even like a protagonist as selfish, weak willed,immature and well, dumb as Zoey (especially when we're constantly told how brilliant she is )and the lack of an actual interesting plot and weak supporting characters don't really motivate me to pick up the next book.

The only characters with any real development are Stevie Rae and Aphrodite...but even they aren't enough to make up for such a terrible, unsympathetic lead as Zoey Redbird.

Okay I tried to like this book. I'm young at heart and enjoy a good high school story, but this one has a some glaring problems that I could not get past.

1. There are more run-on sentences and typos in this book than I have ever seen in a professionally published novel. Two sentences cannot be hooked together with just a conjunction. The comma is not optional. This mistake is nearly on every page of the book, at least every other page.

2. It is never okay to portray a student having sex with a teacher as a good, exciting thing. This book is listed as a teen novel. What worse message can you send than it's exciting and wonderful to get physically involved with the teacher? I'm no prude, but it's not cool for a young high school girl to make out with an adult male teacher. It's not even legal.

3. Zoey is a spoiled and unlikeable character. She'll make out with anyone with lips, and we're supposed to think it's okay bc she has a fleeting moment of guilt? Wrong. She's spoiled and cruel. If a guy were physically involved with 3 or more women at the same time he'd be portrayed as a player and a jerk, not a hero. It's not okay to toy with people's emotions in a relationship by cheating on them, and it's not okay to describe it as a fun thing. If it happened in the book with the attitude that it was a bad thing, then it would be different. Honestly if a guy were playing Zoey like she is playing them, wouldn't we hate the guy? Then how can we like Zoey without having a sexist double standard? In fact the only redeemable trait I can find for Zoey is that she wants to help Stevie Rae. That's just not enough for me. Who wouldn't want to help a friend in an extreme circumstance?

Our teenager asked for this book so we purchased it. She said it was a very good book and she plans on sharing it with her friends. She also plans on keeping it for her collection so that tells me she truly enjoyed reading it. I have to say that I did not read it but was very happy to observe her reading this book. I am in favor of teenagers reading instead of texting.

I just finished reading Chosen. It is written by P.C. and Kristin Cast. It takes place in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Chosen is about a girl battling her feelings for three different guys. She's also keeping major secrets from her friends because she fears if they know, it will put them at risk. During all of this, she's trying to find a way to fix her former best friend who recently died, but was somehow brought back to life but without a soul or humanity.

I personally loved this book, but I feel it has a very sad ending. I guess that's the way it's written out to be. I think many people who are into any kind of vampire stories and Harry Potter will be interested in this series. It's mainly targeted at teenagers and young adults, but I know many people my age and older who read them. They love them just as much as I do.

The whole series is great, and Chosen, for me, has the best storyline so far. However, despite the creativity, a lot of the writing was irritating. Zoey turns 17 in the book but she and her friends talk like they are 13 or 14. I realize that this is a book for younger people but younger teens and preteens don't need to be reading slang and immature thoughts that could be expressed so much better through clear and descriptive writing. The plot is great and I do read these books because of that, but I wish that the writing style would be taken a step up. There's also a lot of side notes that don't really matter, like when Zoey said "I don't date girls" and then adds in her mind "Not that I have a problem with lesbians" or whatever. She's a powerful fledgling so she needs to act like one. However, the immature writing is the only problem I have with this book. Other than that, it's a real page turner with good plot twists and I enjoyed her love triangle...wait no, love sqauare.
