where I got my copy: Barnes & Noble
Sick of hearing about vampires? So is Meena Harper.
But her bosses are 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. It's a dark side a lot of people, like an ancient society of vampire hunters, would prefer to see him dead for.
The problem is, Lucien's already dead. Maybe that's why he's the first guy Meena's ever met whom 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.
THOUGHTS:I have only read one Meg Cabot series and I thought it was excellent, I still read them from time to time whenever I needed s character with enough moxie to make a dull day. Yes it is Suze from the Mediator series, then I started with Airhead series but I cannot seem to find a day to pick up the next book. And now this... Meena Harper was awesome. She can predict when somebody is going to die and how they are going to die. Not the coolest gift ever since people kind of don't want to know that they are about to die? I don't know I think its cool, you can save lives... but that is of course easier said than done. Her career is a script writer for the soap Insatiable, which took off on a different direction since vampire is all the rage. She has charm and humor.
Prince Lucien and his cronies of vampire screams ancient. He is the direct descendant of Dracula, they stalk at night, use compulsion as they wish, get ashed when sunlight touch their skin and is being hunted by Vatican vampire slayers. Typical and late, I think Cabot jumped too late on the vampire novel wagon. I got bored when I got to the middle part, too cliche and too predictable but the ending is something else. I felt genuinely weepy and heartbroken for Meena.
