Review: Twice Bitten

Reviewed by Jen
 
Wow. Just wow. This book completely knocked my socks off. It took my emotions on a crazy ride... from excitement to passion to joy to despair and back around to hope. Twice Bitten has it all: a great plot, fantastic action, love, betrayal, angst... and sex (did I mention sex?) Again, I say, wow.

The book picks up in the moment where the last one left off. Merit is answering the call of that mysterious note she got at the end of the last installment, inviting her to meet someone. And at first, it seems like this book is going to be about the secret organization of vampires she is asked to join. But the main story really follows Merit and Ethan as they provide security for Gabriel, the Alpha of the shifters, as he gathers his people to vote on the future of the pack. Someone is trying to kill Gabriel, so it's a struggle not only to keep him safe, but to find out who is behind the hit.

Merit is making great strides as a vampire. It's gratifying to see her grow and shine. But the big, big payoff in the book is road she travels with Ethan. These two put me through the wringer here, but in a completely amazing way. I cheered; I cursed; I considered making little Ethan voodoo dolls and sticking them with pins. It was amazing. All of it.

The ending opened so many doors to future storylines, not just in Merit's personal life, but in what will happen with the vampires, the shifters, and the Red Guard. And let's not forget, Celina is still out there somewhere. 5 stars.

Awww. Thanks. I know how massive the TBR pile can be. I'm kind of snowed-in, myself. DD is out three weeks from today! (You can make it.)
