"Meena Harper has bitten off more than she can chew . . .This was a bit below my expectations too but not as bad as Awaken!
Meena has a special gift, but only now does anyone appreciate it. Her ability to predict how everyone she meets will die has impressed the Palatine Guard—a powerful secret demon-hunting unit of the Vatican—and they’ve hired her to work at their new branch in Lower Manhattan. Sure, Meena’s ex-boyfriend was Lucien Antonescu, son of Dracula. But that was before he (and their relationship) went up in flames, and now she’s sworn off vampires for good—even though she firmly believes that just because they’ve lost their souls, it doesn’t mean they can’t love.
Convincing her new partner, über-demon-hunter Alaric Wulf, that vampires can be redeemed won’t be easy . . . especially when a deadly new threat arises, endangering not only the Palatine, but Meena’s friends and family as well. As she unravels the truth, Meena will find her loyalties tested, her true feelings laid bare . . . and temptations she never even imagined before nearly impossible to resist."
I loved the story overall! There were some major plot twists, betrayals, revelations, and drama.
I loved Lucien throughout! His mood changes were upsetting and sometimes very absurd, but I still loved him! After Insatiable nothing can change that!
Also, Meena was awesome as always! I loved the action Meena and Jon got into, and those 2 together was hilarious and awesome!
And then Alaric! Cabot made me love him more in this than in Insatiable. He was seriously awesome in this book!
Overall, I loved Cabot's witty, sarcastic prose! The book was alive in a sense because of her awesome writing! But there were cons too. I really didn't like how she seemed to change preferences between Lucien and Alaric. It's like she suddenly changed her mind on who she wanted Meena to end up with! That really pissed me off!
That ending! Really blew my mind!!! Honestly, Insatiable had a better ending, but this one's ending was pretty good too! One word to describe that ending is 'heartbreaking'. You'll have to read to find out though ;)
