Review: Insatiable - Meg Cabot

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 is already dead. Maybe that’s why he’s the first guy Meena’s ever met whom she could have see herself having a future with. See, while Meena’s always been able to see everyone else’s future, she’s never been able to 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.

Insatiable has lots of characters, I liked all of them. Meena Harper is a great main character and easy to connect with. She hates vampires and works on a television programme; as a script writer, that wants vampires in the show, to attract teens. Lucien Antonescu is a prince and I don't really need to say anything else do I. Alaric and Senor Sticky are also great characters that are just full of awesomeness.

Insatiable is written very well and Meg Cabot can go from writing chick-lit to dark paranormal and fantasy, effortlessly. I did not really think I was reading an adult book because to me it's just Meg Cabot's writing and I love it. I can not wait for the next instalment.
