I really enjoyed this book. Zoey goes through alot of situations her readers can relate to. I also enjoyed the way the book really keeps you intrested right up until the last pages of the book. Overall i would highly recommend this book for anyone who enjoys vampire books or even mystery books. I can't wait to read more from P.C. Cast.
I'm not entirely sure what to make of the sequel to Marked. I think I enjoyed the first novel better. Betrayed had too many changes in their characters for me to be comfortable with it. The former all-evil enemy is now someone who is scarred from her past and actually has a conscience. The motherly figure to the outcast heroine is now taken away from her. Although the book does show the "crap-ness" of growing up, I'm wondering if there was just too much in this book. Also, I had loved Erik Night from the first novel, and I don't really approve of Zoey's flirtations with Heath and Loren, a professor. I can see that Heath's human connections provide a lot of the story and that Loren's part still has a lot to tell, but it is because there is so much to tell, and nothing has been really concluded that makes this novel a hard one to finish in my mind. I guess I shall just go ahead and read Chosen and decide what I really think about this. Of course this doesn't mean that I didn't enjoy reading it. In fact, I love Zoey as the heroine. And I'm intrigued as to her growing tattooed Marks. Of course how she ended things with Neferet is a forewarning to what is to come. So I am looking forward to that. I just wish that Zoey had some more time to just rest up and adapt because this series is going at such a fast pace.
