Insatiable, by Meg Cabot
Publisher: William Morrow (Harper Collins)
NY Times bestselling author, Meg Cabot, was born in Bloomington, Indiana. In addition to her adult contemporary fiction, she also writes young adult books like the bestselling series, The Princess Diaries. She resides in Key West, Florida with her husband.
Meena Harper is so sick of vampires, but her boss is now making her write them into the plot of the soap opera she works for, Insatiable. Though she doesn't believe in vampires, Meena is no newbie to the paranormal. Not that anyone believes her, but Meena knows how everyone is going to die---a gift, or curse, she's had since childhood. But not even her visions prepare her for Lucien Antonescu. Dark, mysterious, handsome Lucien saves her one night from a crazy swarm of bats, and now it seems they are destined to be connected. Except the attraction between them leads to a series of events that threatens all they hold dear, and the very fate of the world. As Meena fights beside Lucien for her life, she soon realizes a very big problem---Lucien is already dead.
Without putting up a spoiler alert, I'll just say this. The author in me respects and bows down to the ending, both in context and the implications, or openness. But the avid reader in me couldn't help but be disappointed at the lack of closure.
In saying that, there's no doubt that Meg Cabot knows what she's doing. She writes with wit, charm, steam, and tension. Readers, I feel, will not be let down, nor be able to put this down until the last page. Perfect setting, perfect cast. Bravo.
