Betrayed (House of Night)

Производитель: "Little, Brown and Company"

It seems that life is going pretty well for Zoey Redbird. She`s settled in at the House of Night finishing school and is coming to terms with the vast powers the vampyre goddess, Nyx, has given her. She even has a boyfriend... or two. Best of all, Zoey finally feels she has found somewhere she belongs. Then the unthinkable happens. Human teenagers are being killed, and all the evidence points to the vampires at Zoey`s school. While danger stalks the humans from Zoey`s past life, she begins to realise that the very powers that made her so unique might also threaten those she loves. Then, when she needs her new friends the most, death strikes the House of Night. Zoey finds herself facing a betrayal that could break her heart and jeopardise the very fabric of her world. - Not suitable for younger readers?

Phyllis Christine Cast[3] (born 1960) is an American romance/fantasy author, known for the House of Night series she writes with her daughter Kristin Cast, as well as her own Goddess Summoning and Partholon book series.[4]

Career

On her own, P.C. Cast is known for her Goddess Summoning and Partholon book series.[4] Her first book, Goddess of the Sea, was originally published in 2001, won the Prism, Holt Medallion, and Laurel Wreath awards, and was a finalist for the National Readers' Choice Award; her subsequent books have won a variety of prizes.[5]

In 2005, she and her daughter began co-writing the House of Night series.[6] In the wake of the current popularity of vampire fiction led by Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series, the Casts' books have enjoyed substantial and increasing critical and commercial success,[7][8] and in March 2009, the fifth book in their series, Hunted, opened at number one on the best-seller lists of USA Today[9] and The Wall Street Journal.[6]

According to P.C. Cast, the concept for the House of Night novels came from her agent, who suggested the theme "vampire finishing school."[10] The books take place in an alternative universe version of Tulsa, Oklahoma inhabited by both humans and "vampyres" (Cast uses this alternative spelling in the books, explaining it as a choice she made "just 'cause I like the way it looks"[11]). The protagonist, Zoey Redbird, age 16, is "marked" as a "fledgling" and moves to the "House of Night" school to undergo her transformation.[4]

In November 2008, Variety reported that producers Michael Birnbaum and Jeremiah S. Chechik had obtained an option to acquire the motion picture rights in the House of Night series.[12]

Personal information

Born in Watseka, Illinois,[13] Cast lives in Tulsa, where she taught high school English[14] and where her daughter is a student at the University of Tulsa.[4]

Cast has been married and divorced three times. In June 2010, Cast wrote about her marriages and her current personal relationship with Seoras Wallace, a Scottish historian and chieftain of Clan Wallace, whom she met while researching her novel The Avenger.[15]
