By Meg Cabot
Genre Adult paranormal romance
Recommended by Me
First sentence Meena Harper knew things, things no one else knew...things no one could know.
Meena Harper can tell see when a person is going to die. An annoying gift but a useful one. Fate can be changed, and if she warns someone not to do something they better listen. She now works for The Palatine Guard, a secret demon hunting unit of the Vatican. When she keeps dreaming of Lucien her ex boyfriend, a vampire who happens to be the son of Vlad The Impaler, she tries to convince her boss and her partner Alaric Wulf that there is good in Lucien. But with tourists going missing all over the city and Lucien being the number one suspect, Meena's not having much luck.
What it has going for it
I have such mixed feelings! I read the first book several years ago and enjoyed it. It was funny and exciting and had two super hot guys for the heroine Meena. What's not to love? In the first book I loved Alaric, the demon hunter. I couldn't get why Meena wanted to be with boring old Lucien. In this one I felt the opposite... sorta. I still liked Alaric but Lucien suddenly came back all redemptive. I was quite smitten with him. My point is, I love Meg Cabot books. She writes such funny adventurous books that make you laugh and make you flip pages at an alarming rate. The mystery was fun and I wasn't able to easily predict what was going to happen and, by the end, I was hooked into the story....
However, and it might have been a mood thing, I was a little bored in this one. I kept having to force myself to pick it up. Yeah, the end got good but it dragged a little in the middle.
Too spoilery but it was so sweet and sad.
Yea or Nay?
If you liked the first one you'll like this one. I'd say, continue on with the series.
