Book 2 in the House of Night Series picks up right after Book 1. The story follows Zoey as she tries to unravel a mystery of why human teenagers are being murdered. The story is mainly the same tempo as the first and dialogue keeps in tune as well. I did find it frustrating to get through it at times, simply for the fact the book is very repetitive. I found myself skimming whole pages over dialogue and back story that was more or less recycled from the first book. The story is fun and inventive, maybe it was just meant to be an actual full length book rather than a series. The frustration of re-reading how Zoey feels when her grandmother calls her a special name, makes me want to just scream. All in all, I do like the series and I am going to stick with it. This is definitely the book in the series that will make you not like the main character a bit and with the repetitive writing, you may even get a little huffy with the author(s) as well. I recommend this for mature 14 year olds and up.
