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.

Meg Cabot has to be one of my top ten favorite authors and I love every thing she writes.  Insatiable is of course no exception.   Insatiable is a new take on an old classic that seems to captivate just about everyone.   I find it almost as intriguing as the original story by Mr. Stoker.  I think that Meg Cabot has captured the very essence that made Dracula such a great book in her own very amazing book. 

In this book you have Meena the writer who also can see when people are going to die.  This seems to get her into all kinds of trouble through out the book.  You than have a vampire slayer who seems to have the hots for her.  He also wants revenge against all vampires because of what they did to his partner.  Last you have Lucien Antonescu who of course is our prince of darkness.  is here to find out who is killing girls and risking possible exposure of the vampire race.

This book has a slow kind of build up but that just makes it all the better. You really get to know Meena and figure out what type of person she is. You get to know a lot about many of the supporting characters that make this book very humorous. I love Meena’s neighbors and her dog Jack Bauer.

I am looking forward to reading her next book to this series. I am hoping that the next book has a more satisfactory ending. I was very sadden by the ending in Stokers version lets hope that Meg takes mercy on those of us who were hoping for a different outcome.
