Review: Insatiable by Meg Cabot

Standard

Insatiable by Meg Cabot

Hardcover, 451 pages
Published June 8th 2010 by William Morrow
“Sick of vampires? So is Meena Harper.
But her boss is 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 . . . a dark side a lot of people, like an ancient society of vampire-hunters, would prefer to see him dead for. The problem is, he already is dead. Maybe that’s why he’s the first guy Meena’s ever met that she could see herself having a future with. See, while Meena’s always been able to see everyone else’s future, she’s never been able 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.”  – Goodreads
My Opinion: I guess this is like Dracula by Stoker. It had the same characters Lucien is Dracula and Meena Harper is Mina Harper. They fall in love but there are murders happening that Lucien needs to investigate to figure out what is happening with the vampire murders and He needs to get to get to the bottom of it because he is the leader of the vampires. He meets Meena when she and he are attacked while she is walking her dog and meet again when her neighbor who also happens to be a vampire invites her to welcome a real prince from Romania, only thing is that its not just other vampires that are rising up but also the Palatine are coming to fight and kill the prince of darkness. But Alaric Wulf, a Palatine guard, falls in love with Meena. Meena can see how people are going to die… which means she is very appealing to both the Palatine and the vampires because if they drink her blood then they can see how people are going to die.
I liked Meena she seems real and I love this revamp of the Dracula story. I think it worked well and there are funny moments in the book that made me laugh.
Overall: 4 out 5
