Buy This Book Another author has been seduced by creatures of the night. Insatiable is the first book of a new vampire series by Meg Cabot. As a writer for the popular and long-running soap opera, Insatiable, Meena Harper has a life that many would envy. But she has a telepathic gift that is more of a curse: She is able to see how someone will die.
This has greatly affected her life, driving away boyfriends and causing her to be something of a recluse. There have been a rash of murders in New York. Young girls are being discovered in parks, drained of their blood. The prince of darkness has come from Romania to investigate who among his kind is committing these crimes and deal with the perpetrator.
Since his death, Lucien has imposed new rules, which include keeping their existence a secret. His mission is interrupted, however, when he meets a remarkable woman who starts to warm his non-beating heart. The two share a wonderful night together and Meena is on cloud nine until a very large, very intimidating German man breaks into her home, wielding a sword and asking her to divulge the location of the prince of darkness.
This book pokes fun at itself several times. These jokes are found throughout. I was a bit turned off by the fact that this book contains Jonathan and Meena Harper, while Dracula has Jonathan and Mina Harker, until the author points out the similarity. As a whole, I enjoyed the book and want to read the next installment, but there were a couple things that sort of bugged me. At the beginning of the book, there were very long sentences broken up by huge phrases.
By the end, it was difficult to remember where the sentence began and I would have to re-read it. The quote I used in the previous paragraph is a good example of this. Meena was also stupid at times. Not necessarily Too Stupid To Live, but she would do things that were supposed to represent woman power and only ended up making her look dumb. And is a bat attack really deadly? Smaller issues like these brought my level of enjoyment down a bit. Insatiable is easy to read, fast-paced, and very self-aware.
This is a good beginning to yet another vampire series with a love triangle. Who will Meena choose? Will it be the dashing, bloodsucking prince of darkness or the beefy, heroic vampire slayer? Buy Insatiable by Meg Cabot:.
So is Meena Harper. Meena Harper is familiar with the supernatural. No one ever does. Lucien seems to be everything Meena has ever dreamed of in a boyfriend, though he might turn out to be more of a nightmare.

I actually loved it a lot, so it seems I am one of the few who do. Because what. I still remember the end of Insatiable, where Alaric talks about how talented people must use their talents to protect others. I thought that she would definitely go back to work on helping people, having a happy, satisfied life kicking ass killing bad things, or at least helping prevent people from dying at work, and you know- help the greater good and everything.
