Best Book Quote: “Meena,” he said. His voice was a gruff whisper in the darkened gallery. “What are you hiding from me?” Her voice was as throaty as his. “Nothing,” she lied. “I swear.” And then the incredible happened. His mouth came down on hers.”


Move over Twilight because I’ve found a new vampire romance story that I love. Its called Insatiable by Meg Cabot and it’s one of the best books I’ve read in a long time.

The Story: Meena Harper is a writer for a highly rated daytime soap opera. Although skilled in her field, she also has another talent: the ability to look at someone and see when they will die. She’s used this gift numerous times to help others avoid danger – too bad it couldn’t be used to forsee this latest dilemna: vampires. You see the corporate suits have decided to write vampires into the soap opera’s storyline. Meena thinks that’s simply ridiculous – why would anyone want to watch a TV show about vampires? I guess it’s a good thing Meena is a writer and not in marketing . . .

At a neighbor’s party, Meena is introduced to Lucien Antonescu, a visiting professor from Romania, who, unbeknownst to her, is really the supreme prince of darkness and the son of Dracula himself. He’s immediately intrigued by her, this young woman who sees the future and can steer people away from certain death. As for Meena, she’s completely surprised that this polished, urbane, beautiful man is so focused on her; she’s completely swept off her feet by his attentions. Then reality sets in when Alaric Wulf, vampire hunter extraordinaire, tells her that her new lover is a super-vamp and she has landed in the middle of a vampire war.

I love a book with great dialogue and that’s what Meg Cabot has delivered in Insatiable. Meena is an independent character with spirit and soul who you connect with immediately. Lucien is brooding and dark after living for 500 years (it’s fascinating to watch Meena bring him back to life). Alaric is an emotionally closed warrior whose mission to kill every vampire on earth is forever altered by Meena and her life-affirming attitude. I think of this book as Twilight on steroids. I won’t give away the ending – you have to read it – but I think (and sure hope!) there is the chance for a sequel. I was so entranced, I read it in one sitting and you know that feeling you have when a good book is over? That’s how I felt when I finished this book – disappointed it was over and praying for a sequel.

This is a great book written by an extremely talent storyteller whose work will undoubtedly re-energize the paranormal romance genre. Tired of vampires? I think not.

  1. New Book – Oracle of Devi – What happens when we die?
    Is there nothing, heaven, or something completely different?
    And can we know the future?
    When author Kim Dimpel Ulhaq suffered a head injury, she began writing down her near death dreams and experiences, collecting them in her brilliant new book, Oracle of Devi. Death, for Kim brings visions of the netherworld,galactic exchanges, terror and great joy. As the images about the past swirl around her, she also looks to the future, using both Tarot cards and Rune stones to divine what might happen next. The signs of death are
    all around us, says Kim, but we can illuminate the puzzle by jotting down our memories, stories, and dreams. Beautifully written and told with grace and a sense of wonder, Oracle of Devi investigates what dream prophecies can tell us. There will be flooding and upheaval for our planet because of
    an unknown 12th planet, she suggests, which is beyond Neptune and is as yet undiscovered. This planet will bring great change and a new era when it appears dark red in the sky in 2012. But will it bring an alignment of the planets or the return of a dangerous asteroid in 2029 that will hurtle to Earth? Thought-provoking and important the Oracle of Devi is a surprising look at our present, our past, and our possible futures. Can the future be foretold? Gorgeously written and poetic, Oracle of Devi is a fearless look at love, romance, life, and the mysteries around us. Mystical and magical, it promotes wonder and curiosity in page after astonishing page, even as it marks the unveiling of a talented new writer.

  2. I really want to try this one and I’m so glad you liked it because I just read a review where someone hated it.

  4. Hi all, – spotted this webpage inadvertently whilst searching round the web this evening, and delighted that I did! I do like the page structure and different shades, but I have to say that I’m having trouble when it loads. I’m making use of Netscape 7 internet browser for mac, and the menu bit does not line up the right way. i am fairly certain used the equivalent design on a company’s internet site, but the menu seems okay on mine. I imagine the problem is at my end and perhaps it is time to switch!
