Book Review: Insatiable by Meg Cabot

TV writer Meena Harper creates fabulous plots for Insatiable, the second-highest–rated soap opera, thanks to her burdensome if lucrative psychic ability to see into the future and determine how people are going to die. And just as Insatiable is switching to a vampire theme to attract a younger demographic, a spate of chilling murders-by-exsanguination grips New York City. Enter Lucien Antonescu, a sexy, melancholic Romanian history professor/vampire who recognizes that the murders are the work of rogue vampires who have broken away from his order. (Lucien happens to be the son of Vlad the Impaler, whom Bram Stoker gave such a bad rep.) Lucien's opposition: Alaric Wulf, a sympathetic detective from the Palatine Guard, who hopes to use Meena and her prophetic gift to stop the murders and track down Lucien. Unfortunately for Alaric, Meena is a little in love with Lucien.

**Slight Spoilers in Review


Surprisingly, I didn't hear very good things about this book before I read it. However, I decided to give it a chance. It was ok. Meg Cabot is a good writer, there is no doubt about that and the story flowed well. I didn't get bored or stop reading the book but there was no wow factor, nothing that kept me up all night not able to wait to see what happens next. It was just ok. The charcters were well developed and  it was interesting that she was able to link the main vampire character back to Vlad the Implaler. The storyline was a little predictable. Vampire falls in love with main character, she loves him too, then the vampire hunter falls in love with her too and now there is this big love triangle. The ending was a little surprising because it didn't follow the traditional vampire/human love story. It's like the author just decided that she wanted to write a book about vampires so that's what she did.
