I have to say that while this book kept my attention, I was disappointed with where the characters went. The ending was too abrupt & the death of a major character was unfortunate. Sadly, this is the final book in what could have been an amazing series (I don't see how there can possibly be a sequel with the corner she wrote her characters into).

If you are expecting this book to deliver a heart throbbing romance with danger and intrigue...don't hold your breath. After reading the Twilight series and the Sookie Stackhouse series, I was so thrilled when Meg turned out Insatiable - it had everything I look for in a book. Fast forward one (long) year later anxiously awaiting the release of Overbite, and although I read it in one day, there was NO romance really to speak of...I will try book three next year, but it if does not deliver as well, I'll be done with the series. I think she forgot she intended this series to be for adults...not her usual teen audience.

Meg puts a new spin on yet another "vampire" story. I love Meg Cabot. First her "Princess" series and then her "Mediator" series and now, yes, it is another "vampire love story" but with a twist. You learn some new vampire lore. Read it you will love it!

Didn't like it at all. Plodding plot, too much internal dialogue and not enough between characters. Finished the book eventually but it took a lot of work to get there.

I immediately brought this after reading Insatiable. Like before I was rooting for Lucien and Meena to get back together. I was heartbroken by the ending. Like why Meena? I didn't expect the ending at all. Although the rest of the book was a lite predictable I still enjoyed reading it.

The legend of Dracula has been stated the Vlad The Impaler was so grief stricken by the death of his wife's suicide that he lashed out at the people he felt were responsible and randomly killing people as a way of seeking revenge. Now his son has been struggling with the internal conflict within himself between good and evil and has become the most wanted man by the Palatine, a secret police of the Vatican responsible for ridding the world of evil wherever it is found. Meena Harper on the other hand has her own conflict, one being in love with Lucien Antonescu, the son of Dracula and working for the Palatine, hunting him down. She has a unique gift that allows her to predict how everyone she meets will die. Using it, she has helped people save their lives instead and has altered their future in a positive way. Her rival at the Palatine is Alaric Wulf who has vowed to personally kill Lucien if he can find him, however Meena believes that he still possesses a goodness within himself that should be protected and used to fight evil in the world. But Alaric isn't the slightest bit convinced and will stop at nothing to drive his sword into Lucien's heart. When a new breed of vampires begins attacking New York's tourists, the hunt for the head vampire begins with a vengeance. Meena is still struggling to deal with the love she feels for Lucien and that a dream she is being plagued with is the answer that she needs to share with him. It is a dream of him as a small boy with his mother just before she commits suicide and one which holds the key to unlock a deep secret that will change all their lives. I received Overbite by Meg Cabot compliments of William Morrow, a division of Harper Collins Publishers for my honest review. Being a fan of Buffy The Vampire Slayer series on television, this book definitely took me back to the relationship shared between Buffy and Angel in regards to Meena and Lucien. The story is well written, filled with action and suspense and one whose ending was great and unexpected. I rate this one a 4.5 out of 5 stars and highly recommend it to fans of vampire novels with a love story twist! This was an unexpected change for me, since this is the same author of The Princess Diaries, but I loved her ability to tell a great story and keep the reader entertained.

I was leery of reading these two new books by Meg (Insatiable too) because of the vampire premise. I never really got into the whole Twilight saga and was disappointed (so I thought) when I began to read the first book in this series. I have loved every single Meg Cabot book that I have read thus far (which has been every book in her adult collection) and I even contemplation reading a few in her young adult series to pass the time until another great Cabot piece was released. I was very surprised by both books. They were great! I have read other reviews and i disagree that the book was not good. I though they both contained the right amount of seduction and mystery. I couldn't put either book down and read them both right through. Can't wait for another Meg Cabot release!

if you enjoyed the twilight series at all, you will probably hate this book. i'v always had a soft spot for Meg cabot from when she first came out with princess diaries. and i am sorry to say this was so bad i was angry when it finished. the ending of the book is the most aggravating part. it felt like a rush job, and on top of everything the whole vampire charade she went through was a waste of time, because she ended up with someone else. its obvious that meg was on teem Jacob... but she was LAZY about it. even though we know that the vampire slayer has a thing for the girl, he has done nothing to prove that he even gives a crap about her besides saving her life(which is his job), but for some reason she decides to run off with him anyway. and she kills of the main guy for some kind of B.S. reason that was only explained in dialogue. DIALOGUE! dialogue that not to mention only came after he died. and what kind of woman can say she's madly in love with a guy, but be scared he's going to kill her!? WAT?? meg cut corners, refused to fully develop important characters, if i could give this no stars i would.

Overbite by Meg Cabot is the sequel to Insatiable that came out in 2010. Meena has left behind her old life to work for the Palatine. She's still desperately missing Lucian but she feels satisfied that she's helping save lives. When an old boyfriend comes calling Meena realizes that something is not quite right with him. Something or someone is after her. With the help of Lucian and Alaric, Meena tries to uncover who is behind it all.Overbite is a good sequel. It picks up where the last book ended. Meg Cabot brought back all the characters that I love from Insatiable. The story line is full of mystery and intrigue. There are a lot of revelations that happen in this book that are jaw dropping. I love that Meg Cabot kept the humor from the last book while managing to amp up the drama. Although the story is well written and very good I was a little disappointed in the ending. I don't want to spoil it for anyone who has not read this book yet, but I will say I wish things turned out differently.This is a book that I would recommend. It's has the right amount of humor mixed with supernatural elements. I think if you like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, you'll like this series. This is a great escape book to read while on vacation.

Meena Harper has started to settle into her job with the Palatine in her effort to keep their various demon hunters from dying. Of course, things get a little bit more complicated when one of her ex-boyfriends turns up as a vampire and then get even worse when Lucien Antonescu pops back up into her life. The mix gets even more complicated when one of Alaric's least favourite members of the clergy shows up and really shakes things up inside the Palatine. With new vampire threats looming and Lucien seeming to head down a very dark path, Meena has her work cut out for her.This novel left me feeling only ok about it even though I read through it very quickly. Meena is still enjoyable and there were definite moments of humour but the plot felt a little thin and underdeveloped. Compared with Insatiable this book is not as great but it's still a fun read and it's enjoyable to hang out with all of the characters from the previous book. Definitely only for those who enjoyed the first book.Meena Harper has started to settle into her job with the Palatine in her effort to keep their various demon hunters from dying.

Reading Meg Cabot is hit or miss with me. Some things I truly love (Ransom My Heart) and some are downright awful (see my review for Abandon). This falls somewhere in the middle. I was intrigued enough to see where she was going to take the story after Insatiable. If you were a fan of that book you will like this. The story picks up with Lucien saving Meena's life from an undead ex. The pages always sizzle when Lucien is around. Misunderstandings occur with Alaric Wulf and the romance fails to take off after the kiss that ended book one. Meena continues her work with the Palatine while Lucien pops in and out of the story. Finally there is a big showdown where all is revealed and Meena fights for Lucien's soul. Throughout there are cheap shots at New Jersey calling it a hell mouth. Spoken like a New Yorker Meg. I have spent many summers in the Pine Barrens and I can assure you that there is no gate to hell there. That goes for you too Janet Evanovich. My main problem with this book is Meena's voice. Her gee wiz this can't be happening tone is on my last nerve. I did however appreciate Meg's attempt to bring a dose of reality into the book as her book as she notes in the back of the book that the Minetta stream, Vlad the Impalers wife's suicide, and the Palatine Guard were indeed all factual. This is a good dose of escapism reading but there won't be much that sticks with you after you turn the last page.

In spite of its failings, Insatiable was fun enough for me to continue on with the sequel, Overbite. But Overbite was lacking in the light-hearted sexiness and tongue-in-cheek humor that characterized the first book. AND, to make it all worse, MY team (see second paragraph) didn¿t win! ARGHHHHH!The second book picks up six months after the first. Meena Harper now works for the Vatican¿s Vampire-Busting Outpost in Manhattan (one presumes Steven King has a lock on depictions of Las Vegas as the devil¿s headquarters). She still has feelings for Lucien Antonescu, the Prince of Darkness, but also has feelings for Alaric Wulf, the Prince of Vampire Busters (thus, Team Lucien v. Team Alaric). Several characters from book one return, and a new big player arrives in book two: Father Henrique Mauricio from Brazil, land of a bizarre clan of flesh-eating vampires.In this sequel, Meena gets religious, and has lost her feistiness in favor of being constantly teary-eyed; Lucien tries to live up to his epithet ("Prince of Darkness"); Alaric has anger issues; and Manhattan is once again overrun with unruly, demonic vampires. There are a couple of funny jokes about New Jersey, but otherwise this book is overly serious, overly whiny, overly predictable, and over bitten. Stick with book one, and skip the sequel BECAUSE WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO READ IT ANYWAY WHEN MY TEAM DIDN¿T WIN?!!!Evaluation: The sequel doesn¿t quite match Book One, which in any event wasn¿t in the running for Top Literature of All Time.

Overbite is the second book in the Insatiable series by Meg Cabot. I really enjoyed the story line of this book. Lucien gets shafted quite a bite. I felt pretty bad for him through most of the book actually, but it gave me time for Alaric to grow on me. By about half way through or so, I joined Team Alaric. I know! I didn't expect that either, because I really didn't care for him much in book one. This time around we meet new characters and new monsters. There are some twists along the way. If the series ended here, I would be happy. I love how things turned out, which also surprised me, because normally a thing or two that happened would have bothered me, but in Overbite? it worked. With all that being said, this isn't the end. There's at least one more book in the works, and I'm pretty excited about it.

This book is Nothing like Twilight, for instance Alaric Wulf is not Jacob, and Lucien is not Edward.  It is different by leaps and bounds, I don't know if Meg Cabot ever read Twilight, lots of authors don't read each other's stuff to avoid stealing ideas.  I liked this book, I was surprised by the ending but pleased with how it was done.  It wasn't sloppy or lazy, there were carefully developed personalities in a sweet story.  I love Meg Cabot books and this series of two is no different, a strong female lead  and a good story to back her up. Thinking back on this book, there are a few things I might have developed a little more in the end but then it would less of an 'Inception' ending.  I like this book, it's one I'll read again.

Amazingly bad sequal. I can only assume Ms. Cabot had some major life crisis that came out in her writing and changed her tone, plot, and ending of the story. The fun of the first book was gone, the characters are now bland, and the ending was awful. I loved the first book and Lucien so I was really annoyed with this book. And about 250 words!.. like she didn't care at all. Very disappointing.
