Emma Vaile is the most powerful ghostkeeper in centuries. Which is great when she's battling the wraith-master Neos, but terrible when she's flirting with fellow ghostkeeper (and soul mate) Bennett. When ghostkeepers fall in love, the weaker one loses all power, and that's not something Bennett can handle. Heartbroken and alone, Emma tries to lose herself in school with fellow ghostkeeper, Natalie. When a new team of ghostkeepers arrive—one a snarky teen
boy, the other a British scholar—Emma finds solace in training for the battle against Neos. But as the team grows stronger, they are threatened by an unknown force. One they thought was good.
As chilling and page-turning as Deception, this sequel will grab readers and hold them to the last page. No one is safe from suspicion as Emma closes in on the traitor.
Betrayal brings us deeper into Emma's ghost keeper world as I learned a lot more about her powers and also her family. I continued to love Emma's spirited and brave attitude no matter what happens. I liked that she also realized that she had to take responsibility on fighting against Neos. Bennett developed a lot more, because he had to make a lot of difficult choices about Emma and his relationship. It is so sad that they can't be together without too many consequences and I hated what he was doing to himself in the book.. I loved the other characters in this book, they all bring something amazing to the book and contributed to the plot. The plot started off slow, but it quickly became fast paced and continually more exciting. I can't wait to see what happens in the sequel, and what surprises come with it. Nichols' writing is stunning and I loved how she blended the old and new characters to make one harmonious cast of unique characters.
