Wow. I read this book twice, because I devoured it in one sitting the first time, and I wanted to slow down and enjoy the second time around. Don't buy this expecting a nice sparklie vampire love story. Do buy it if you like grown up vampires with real vampire desires and no predictable behavior. Theres blood and death, and thats balanced out by the growing love between the main characters. So glad there are more in this series available, but I might have to take a brake to save my heart from overload.

First the writer would have you think the main character defends

First the writer would have you think the main character defends the weak and innocent, yet she watches and (gets off on) a vampire draining a woman. She also gets off on having sex with men she doesn't like, trust or respect. This book was a waste of time.

    2.5 stars because...

    I was somewhat disappointed to find that the Huntress prequel was the same beginning chapters of Once Bitten. The werewolf/vampire twist to the story was original and great! However, as I read on, I became less enamored with characters that acted more like teenagers than twentysomethings.

    Some playfulness in a story is good, but too much silliness within friviolous scenes combined with the heroine's *forced* aggressiveness ruined the read for me. I also thought the centuries-old male vampire lacked sophistication, and other than a mutual power resonating between him and the heroine, I could not understand what relevant qualities drew him to her in the first place. And kept him in pursuit.

    The writing lacked strength and fluidity, but time and practice should improve the author's newer works.
