Review - Insatiable by Meg Cabot (Insatiable, #1)

Title: Insatiable (Insatiable, #1) (Amazon)
Author: Meg Cabot
Publisher: William Morrow
Release Date: Jun 2010
Pages: 451
Genre: Y/A
Source: Library

Sick of vampires? So is Meena Harper.

But her boss is making her write about them anyway, even though Meena doesn’t believe in them.

Not that Meena isn’t familiar with the supernatural. See, Meena Harper knows how you’re going to die (not that you’re going to believe her; no one ever does).

But not even Meena’s precognition can prepare her for what happens when she meets—then makes the mistake of falling in love with—Lucien Antonescu, a modern-day prince with a bit of a dark side . . . a dark side a lot of people, like an ancient society of vampire-hunters, would prefer to see him dead for.

The problem is, he already is dead. Maybe that’s why he’s the first guy Meena’s ever met that she could see herself having a future with. See, while Meena’s always been able to see everyone else’s future, she’s never been able look into her own.

And while Lucien seems like everything Meena has ever dreamed of in a boyfriend, he might turn out to be more like a nightmare.

Now might be a good time for Meena to start learning to predict her own future . . .

If she even has one.

Kim’s Take – I have to say I was pretty intrigued when I found a vampire story written by Meg Cabot. She has become one of my favorite authors whose books I go for automatically when I want to read something I am guaranteed to like. And I wasn’t let down. I loved this book!

There is always humor thrown into Meg Cabot’s books and this one was no different. Meena Harper is a writer on a popular soap opera. Irritated by the vampire craze, she is livid when she finds a vampire character is being written into the show. In Meena’s opinion, vampires are non-existent. Which is odd since she possesses a strange capability of determining how someone is going to die. The skill has often hurt her more than helped.

When Meena is saved one night on the street by a mysterious stranger she almost feels as if it had to be a dream. But she soon finds that is not the case once she meets Lucien. Sweet, sexy Lucien is like a knight in shining armor and she falls in love with him immediately. Unfortunately for Lucien, he also finds himself obsessing over Meena. Which is a good thing for neither of them. Lucien is not only a vampire, but he is the worst of them all. He is the “Prince of Darkness”.

Enter Alaric. He is the hot, misunderstood, demon hunter who has his sights set on ridding the world of Lucien. He finds that Meena is becoming more to him than just a link to Lucien.  Imagine a battle between the prince of darkness and a bad-ass demon hunter for possession of one woman. Hot! It’s hard choosing one side when both guys are swoon worthy!

There is a very interesting cast of characters throughout the book which makes it interesting during the battle at the end and the truth regarding many of these characters comes out.

I was obsessed with the story and started the second book in the series immediately. More to come!

Kim’s Rating -5/5

  3. Hello,

    I've been trying to reach someone because Missy signed up for our Crossed ARC tour and I haven't heard from her. Our records show she received the book and should have shipped to next participant already. I have sent an e-mail and will be sending another one sometime today.

    If I do not hear from you girls I will have to mark the book STOLEN and ban both of you from any future ARC Tours.
