Sometimes life really bites…

For socially inept nerds like Eva Harper, the junior prom is bound to suck, especially when her date turns out to be a vampire. Eva wakes from the change knowing her life will never be the same. Not only is the vegan teenager now a vampire, but a vicious virus has struck, spreading across the globe and irreversibly changing much of mankind…into zombies.

…and the only thing to do is to bite back

Fleeing from the vampire hive and their controlling queen, Eva takes up with a rag-tag militia in their seemingly insurmountable quest to rid the world of zombies. But little does she know it’s her own secret, a secret she doesn’t even know she has, that will be the turning point for the zombie wars.

I really liked this book! Really, really liked this book! It was not the typical zombie apocalypse type of world, and I loved that! The main character, Eva, is one tough cookie. If I ever have to deal with a zombie situation, she is who I want to have with me. She is equipped with just about everything you would want to have when the un-dead take over. However, she doesn't really fit in anywhere, so she is pretty much a loner. In Life Bites, you see some of her past and her present. They are seamlessly blended together, and you soon find out why she keeps to herself. I really appreciated the way Tes Hilaire transitioned between the different times of Eva's life because it is not always an easy thing to do. Sometimes all of the "time-travelling" within a book can get confusing. I DID NOT have that problem here. It was also nice to experience this world from Eva's perspective. I found her to be a very interesting character, and you get to learn a lot about her in the book. Her sarcasm and people skills were so entertaining! It was very easy to get sucked into her story and the challenges she is facing. The supporting characters are great too! You do learn quite a bit about John in this book, and he has an interesting story too. I can't wait for more in this series because I'd like to learn more about some of the others as well. Oh, and not to mention the information that was obtained towards the end of the book! The anticipation of what comes next is killing me! Great book!

I have read the author's Paranormal romance and really enjoyed them. So, I decided to check to see if she had anything else out and found this and a book of shorts. I'm glad I did. A bit of a departure from her Paladin series, this book is slanted to the YA urban fantasy market. Our heroine is a vegetarian teen, turned blood craving vampire by her to-good-to-be-true date for the prom. Eva is running from her maker and his sadistic, mommy-dearest, vampire queen who is none to happy with the girl her son brought home. When we meet her she has joined up with what's left of the military in the fight against the z-virus. Eva is an endearing mix of kick-ass and vulnerability and her supporting cast is interesting also. This story is a winner. Enjoy!
