Review

4 Stars--This is a well-drawn, suspenseful story of vampires and dhampirs and the people they love. The plot is believable (well, it is vampires) and the character motivations are, too. A great read.

By Harriet Klausner #1 HALL OF FAME on December 10, 2010
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Thirty-two years old Sunni Marquette the dhampir (half-breed human-vampire) knows she will always owe the LaForge family for fostering her as a teen with love. They gave her a chance to make it after her horrific childhood. Perhaps the only thing she does not like about being part of the LaForge brood is the weddings, which means ugly dresses and standing a head shorter than the other bridesmaid (she is always carded), but out of loyalty to her beloved foster parents she diligently attends.

At the latest nuptials, she sees a man she thinks is her guardian angel. Stunned soon afterward a drunk attacks her in the bathroom, but to her shock Sunni easily outmuscles the attacker. However, the bigger shocker, perhaps the greatest in her life occurs, when soon after the assault her guardian angel, who saved her years ago from a mugging, talks to her. Jacob has kept Sunni safe for years as he has kept her concealed from rouge vampires who would drink her special blood to gain her power. Jacob fell in love with her years ago, but knows if a rogue finds her he will accomplish the dark side of his mission by killing her. Now a rogue knows of her and attacks by going after her beloved LaForge family.

This exiting action-packed urban fantasy grips readers from the moment Sunni sees her guardian and never slows down until the final confrontation. The Willis universe seems genuine as miscegenation laws cause all sorts of complicated societal issues. However though Sunni is terrific as she holds the plot together and the villain is a nasty power grabber, Jacob makes the tale work with his angst of knowing he will kill his beloved if the rogue has a reasonable chance of taking her.

If the title didn't give you a chuckle, surely the book will. Biting the Bride is a light, comical paranormal story that I enjoyed Immensely. It's full of adventure, suspense, love, and sexy, mysterious vampires. It's a satisfying read that had me laughing throughout. The dialogue is witty, the characters are well written and were fun to read about. Sunni made for a great heroine, and the struggle of who to trust, between Jacob, a mysterious man who she recalls seeing before, and Richard, another mystery. Jacob and Richard are at odds with each other, and one is telling lies about the other. Putting Sunni, and her best friend, in the middle, and in danger. This is a different spin on vampires, and it's not too dark. Clare Willis is an author to watch out for.

Sunni Marquette is our main character in this fantastical, fun, humorous romp. The one thing Sunni truly believes is that marriage is a big, fat waste of time. This is, in fact, what she's thinking at the beginning of this tale as she stands, once again at an altar; a bridesmaid in yet another wedding, wearing cheap shoes and an orange Jell-O colored gown. This is her college friend's wedding, and pretty much the last place Sunni wants to be standing. Of course, for every bad there is a good, and Sunni soon finds out a reason to stay. Across the room, she sees him...the one...the guardian angel who she's met on and off throughout the years that saved her from a mugger over two years ago.

Sunni can't believe it. She also has a hard time believing that he appears just as a drunken sot decides to be a bit overzealous with her at the wedding. Again, the handsome man with eyes that glow like silver appears just as she's about to be harmed, disappearing just as quickly back into the crowd. Oddly enough, Sunni's own "strange" strength makes needing a hero somewhat unnecessary. Although she's now met Jacob Eddington, she's still unsure as to why he always seems to crop up. Is he a stalker?

Even her best friend, Isabel, is having strange "man-issues" in her life, too. Isabel and Sunni have been like sisters ever since they were at a psychiatric institute together when they were kids: Sunni had been placed there because of her "odd" abilities; while Isabel was fighting depression. Sunni, having no parents, became a fixture in Isabel and her family's life. In fact, Isabel's parents were kind enough to give her money and a chance to own her very own art gallery.

Are you ready for a new mythology story about vampire's? If so, this book is for you. It's a bit different from the conventional tales we know and love. I liked and enjoyed it because of these new concepts. It's refreshing and worked for me. I have only one complaint. Not enough romance. Because of this, it receives a lower 4 star rating.

Our handsome hero, vampire Jacob Eddington is working on a mission for the "Council". The "Council" is a secret vampire law keeping group that controls how vampire's behave keeping a watchful eye out for rogue vampire problems. Jacob is assigned to watch and protect beautiful and young Sunni Marquette, from all harm but mostly from the very evil vampire, Richard Lazarus. If Jacob fails to keep Sunni from Richard Lazarus and from possibly joining him, Jacob is under orders to eliminate Sunni. Jacob has been watching Sunni for two years and has conflicted feelings about her. He likes her a lot.

Our heroine, Sunni Marquette is a successful art gallery owner in San Francisco, California and knows she is different from other people but does not know how or why. She is very much aware of Jacob watching her. The first time she sees him he saves her from a mugger. Every time she gets close to him, he disappears. She really wants to talk to her hero and ask him why he is always watching her. She thinks about him all the time.

The villain, vampire Richard Lazarus, kills humans whenever he feels the urge. Richard is very handsome. He craves wealth and power. He wants Sunni to fall in love with him. When Sunni meets Richard she is attracted to his charm and good looks. Jacob and Richard have a centuries old history with one another. They despise each other greatly.
