Description from GoodReads:
Meena Harper has a special gift, but it's only now that anyone's ever appreciated it. The Palatine Guard — a powerful secret demon-hunting unit of the Vatican — has hired her to work at their new branch in Lower Manhattan. With Meena's ability to predict how everyone she meets will die, the Palatine finally has a chance against the undead.My Review:
Sure, her ex-boyfriend was Lucien Antonescu, son of Dracula, the prince of darkness. But that was before he (and their relationship) went up in flames. Now Meena's sworn off vampires for good ... at least until she can prove her theory that just because they've lost their souls doesn't mean demons have lost the ability to love.
Meena knows convincing her co-workers — including her partner, über-demon-hunter Alaric Wulf — that vampires can be redeemed won't be easy ... especially when a deadly new threat seems to be endangering not just lives of the Palatine, but Meena's friends and family as well.
But Meena isn't the Palatine's only hope. Father Henrique — aka Padre Caliente — New York City's youngest, most charming priest, has also been assigned to the case.
So why doesn't Meena — or Alaric — trust him?
As she begins unraveling the truth, Meena finds her loyalties tested, her true feelings laid bare ... and temptations she never even imagined existed, but finds impossible to resist.
This time, Meena may finally have bitten off more than she can chew.
Let me begin by saying that I love Meg Cabot's books and really enjoyed Insatiable. I just have no idea what happened with Overbite.
*Contains Spoilers for Insatiable*
Overbite begins where Insatiable left off. Meena is now working for the Palatine. She is still set on staying away from vampires, especially one handsome/ son of Dracula / Prince of Darkness, Lucien. It might not be so simple to stay away from him. When an old boyfriend reappears and wants more than to see how she is doing she is once again in the middle of a mystery and forced to bring Lucien back into her life.
Overbite is missing the passion and romance of Insatiable. I was expecting the romance and fun narration of Insatiable and I just did not get it in Overbite.
I see that Meg chose the healthy choice for Meena but I just did not see the romance between Alaric and Meena. The plot was also not very interesting. It was nice to see more of Lucien's past. I just don't understand the point if it ended the way it did.
Recommended if you want to read a book about a girl who chooses to listen to her head and not her heart.
