A must read for Paranormal Romance lovers

Val is a mix between Buffy and Anita Blake, so is the book. I really thought I wasn't going to enjoy this as much as I did, based on that fact alone. I love Buffy, and no one for me can compare. Anita, meh, not so much-but Val is a pretty cool girl. She has her own sarc...
Val is a mix between Buffy and Anita Blake, so is the book. I really thought I wasn't going to enjoy this as much as I did, based on that fact alone. I love Buffy, and no one for me can compare. Anita, meh, not so much-but Val is a pretty cool girl. She has her own sarcastic, tough-girl swagger and I really like how she handles herself. The description above is pretty accurate, this is not a YA. It's a crossover and leans more toward Adult Fantasy, but regardless, I found many things I enjoyed that will appeal to young adults as well. Val has some pretty difficult things to deal with. One, her mother kicks her out because she doesn't want her vampire hunting influence around her full human sister. Val's relationship with her mother is strained even before this, and treats her as if she's not even her daughter. Two, she begins working for the Special Crimes Unit and has a smoking hot partner that she has to reign in the succubus side of herself around. Not so easy. And when she feels everyone is against her, and she'll never be accepted, that's when Val starts to figure some things out for herself. I really enjoyed the self-discovery in this story, and Val is a strong female character that I find likable and relatable. The overall plot reads like your typical 'who did it' with her and her partner trying to discover the big bad in her city, but I really liked it. It kept my guessing till the very end and rooting for Val the whole time. I would defiantly recommend this to anyone who loves Paranormal Romance, strong, butt-kicking girls with attitude, and a fun fast read with mystery.

    Fast, mindless vampire novel

    Parker Blue's Underground Series, which includes the titles Bite Me, Try Me, and Fang Me, left me with a feeling of lost time. Sentences tended to be choppy, and the characters were two-dimensional at best. Continual references to Buffy the Vampire Slayer made me want to bang my head against the wall at times. Check them out if you are looking for fast, mindless vampire novels.

    So, I bought this on a two dollar sale as a nook book. At certain points, I had to stop reading it because I got fed up with certain aspects of the book.

    To avoid spoilers, the main character is a textbook example of a Mary Sue. Her life story, personality and the events that happen in the book are just the right mix of "oh woe is me, the world is unfair" and "I have had everything in life handed to me on a silver platter" to make her largely unbearable. I would have given this two stars because there are some good ideas in here, and Fang the Dog is a fun character, except that the way the ending went was SO lame and unsatisfying, especially a certain detail that they figured out after the fact that pointed to whodunit. Again, avoiding spoilers, but a particular line in the ending just made me knock off a whole star rating.

    This story reads like fanfiction to a better series. The fact that the title character makes a point of telling us not to compare her to Buffy the Vampire Slayer just makes me feel like this was written in the same universe with someone's self insert original character. The pace is uneven, the writing is pretty bad (protip: never TELL the reader than an intriguing character is fascinating. Let US decide. I was ready to think he was interesting until Val told me how to think about him.), the morals are obvious and I honestly have no intention of reading any more of it.
    If they make a movie of it, I'll give it a watch, because the good ideas might be allowed to shine with some good actors to bring them to life. Would I recommend it? Read the sample. If the sample doesn't make you cringe at any point, then go ahead. You'll enjoy the book, and its problems won't phase you. If it DOES make your cringe (my cringe moments involved the words Buffy and Lola), steer clear. Also recommended to aspiring authors as a how to guide of what NOT to do.
