Editorial Reviews

Review

"Cabot, adored for her Princess Diaries series and Heather Wells mysteries, holds her own in the crowded paranormal arena, proving that she is truly a versatile, entertaining writer." - Booklist "No one quite brings the sexy-times like Meg Cabot. Especially when she takes on the world of vampires in Insatiable." - Good Books & Good Wine "Cabot winningly applies her trademark likably fallible protagonists and breezy storytelling to a vampire war in New York City" - Publishers Weekly --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

Meena Harper has bitten off more than she can chew . . .

Meena has a special gift, but only now does anyone appreciate it. Her ability to predict how everyone she meets will die has impressed the Palatine Guard—a powerful secret demon-hunting unit of the Vatican—and they’ve hired her to work at their new branch in Lower Manhattan. Sure, Meena’s ex-boyfriend was Lucien Antonescu, son of Dracula. But that was before he (and their relationship) went up in flames, and now she’s sworn off vampires for good—even though she firmly believes that just because they’ve lost their souls, it doesn’t mean they can’t love.

Convincing her new partner, über-demon-hunter Alaric Wulf, that vampires can be redeemed won’t be easy . . . especially when a deadly new threat arises, endangering not only the Palatine, but Meena’s friends and family as well. As she unravels the truth, Meena will find her loyalties tested, her true feelings laid bare . . . and temptations she never even imagined before nearly impossible to resist.

About three quarters into this book I got a feeling the story would end badly but couldn't believe I might be right.
Ann
This book just seemed to be missing all of the pizzazz of it's predecessor and there was so much potential for this book to be amazing.
Book Connoisseur
Overall, I would definitely recommend that fans of the first book stay away from this sequel as they will surely be disappointed.

I absolutely loved the first book in this series, Insatiable. It was a fantastic new take on the whole Dracula legend and I devoured every word. I was beyond thrilled to see that Meg was writing a follow up to it and downloaded it to my Kindle as soon as it released. Now that I am finished with the book and digesting all the information, my overall feeling is disappointment. I was not a fan of where Meg took the story and how the characters developed along the way.

Let's start off talking about Meena. It has been six months since her break-up with Lucien and she has tried to move on with her life. She is working for the Palatine Guard now, hunting vampires and trying to keep the city safe. She has not been dating and when she runs into Lucien again all her old feelings for him come flooding to the surface. However, those feelings are never really given a chance to develop in the book. Actually no one's feelings are given a chance to develop because every time Meena starts to get close to Lucien or Alaric they are interrupted. With either some strange plot twist or Meena crying, the girl was constantly crying. As for Alaric, I know that Meena and he shared a few moments in Insatiable, but I never thought there was any real spark there. In Overbite however, Meena is always thinking about both men and not sure where her true feelings really lie. I did not like the back and forth inner struggle and found it very distracting while reading. If Meena was going to start dating Alaric it is a development that should have at least started before Lucien came back into the picture and not be a sudden development with the arrival of the prince of darkness.

This brings me to my next point, Lucien.

As soon as I was finished with this book, my first thought was: "I have to return this." It was so short compared to Insatiable, which I love, and it seemed rushed. I really took no interest in any of the characters and the Lucien I had grown to love by the end of Insatiable was gone.
This book just seemed to be missing all of the pizzazz of it's predecessor and there was so much potential for this book to be amazing. Insatiable had amazing character development and really gave the reader a chance to invest in the characters. I felt that there was barely any scenes with any other characters other than Meena and Lucien.
Also I thought the ending was awful, not because of what happened, but for the simple fact that there was no set up for it to end the way it did. There wasn't enough character interaction for it to end that way.
If Insatiable was smoking hot, Overbite is freezing cold. This is the first Meg Cabot book I have read that I did not absolutely love (and I have read a lot of Meg Cabot novels).

No doubt someone will like this book. It's just...not me.

I love Meg Cabot's books because of their sly humor, their underdog heroines, and their zany take on paranormal anything. I came to Meg's writing via her teen novels when I was working as a teen librarian.

However, THIS book lacks humor, fun characters, witty dialog - in short, it lacks anything that is fun about Meg and gains nothing good from the vampire genre. It's really like Meg was asked (forced?) to write a vampire novel and just gave up halfway through.

The main character, Meena, truly falls into the 'too stupid to live' category. She's boring, whiny, cries all the time, and has none of the kick-butt attitude of Suzanna from the Mediator series or the clever, plan-ahead smarts of Jean from Jinx. The vampire, Lucien, is dull as the dirt he lives in and the only character I found even remotely interesting was the socially awkward Wulf, who is about as much a stereotype as you can imagine.

The REAL problem, I think, is that this is the first book I've read from Meg that is written in 3rd person ("he drank blood," "she cried," "it was awkward"), rather than told from the 1st person point of view ("I found her earlier books were better.") It's like Meg doesn't know HOW to write in the 3rd person. Her 1st-person books are hilarious - the heroine tells the story of her adventures (and run-ins with the requisite male hottie) in an engaging way. We root for her because we see her insecurities and her struggles through her eyes. The heroine's humor also shines through. This book, however, is just cold when told from the outside. Also, Meg doesn't transition well between whose head we're 'in' at any given time.

I would not recommend reading this book to anyone who had hopes for Lucien after reading the first book because this sequel will destroy any wishes for redemption you've harbored.

As other reviews mentioned Meena is an undecisive and clueless crybaby in this book and it seems as if Meg Cabot simply felt like she wanted to finish the book as fast as possible and not with the typical 'vampire and innocent girl fall in love' ending.

Therefore Lucien is depicted as the egoistical and mean vampire Alaric always accused him of being and Meena's attempts to save Lucien from his own desire to be evil completly fail until the end. I always waited for Lucien to decide that he needs to change now and be the perfect, caring man he was in the first book, but it never happened. Instead we learn about him living in a cave and trying to become like his father.
Meanwhile Alaric plays hard to get and I felt like there was no romance between Meena and him whatsoever even though he always thinks about his 'big love' for her. The same can't really be said about her since she is occupied with thinking about Lucien turning evil and how she still loves him.
I admit that I had really expected Meena to end up with Lucien and this may be one of the main reasons I felt so disappointed with the way the second book ended.

*SPOILER*
I actually enjoy stories with a tragic ending, but I didn't feel a thing when Lucien died. It even annoyed me that Meena was responsible for his death after talking about how much she loved him and would redeem him the whole book. What really upset me though was her decision to run away with Alaric two weeks after Lucien's death.
