Summer's writing is strong and I absolutely love her voice. She has the wonderful ability to include a touch of humor in sometimes dark drama. I recommend this book with a caution that it is short (which you would expect from a novella), occasionally rushed, and leaves some big loose ends (which you might expect from a series leader). If you love reading series, it seems certain that this will be one to follow.
Recommended for anyone who likes urban fantasy, paranormal romance, and kick ass (but relatable) heroines.
Regan Summers writes well, with strong action scenes and believable characters. The story flows smoothly and the dialogue is excellent. While the ending does come quickly, I enjoyed it and didn't consider it too terribly abrupt (Perhaps a little abrupt though- I was just getting to really know Sydney, and even Malcolm. Of course, the fact that I connected so well with the main characters in such a short time is a tribute to Regan's writing.)
I'm glad I purchased this book and I'm looking forward to the next installment.
Vampires would love Alaska in the winter. The nights are close to endless. But the summers would have to suck. And not in a good way.
The idea that vampire powers would also fry electronic technology made for an interesting start to this story. There are already people who go to Alaska for a short-term, high-paying job. Just think of the oil fields. But this makes for a whole new twist.
Our heroine, Sydney Kildare, is a human courier for the vampires. Without technology, the vamps are forced to rely on good, old-fashioned methods of communication. Like messenger services. And Sydney Kildare is the best messenger in Anchorage. Why? Because not only has she lived long enough to learn all the tricks of avoiding hijackers and general bad-asshats, but she's immune to the vampires' allure. That makes her a trustworthy courier.
At the ripe old age of twenty-six, Sydney is within days of buying her way out. She's put money down on a house in Hawaii. She's practically counting the hours until her escape.
Then suddenly Sydney is the target in a vampire turf war, and she doesn't even know why. All she knows is that every safe haven she thought she had isn't safe anymore, and every friend or even friendly acquaintance is either compromised or a target.
There's only one person who is willing to help her. Malcolm Kelly seems to be right there on the scene whenever Sydney is in trouble. But is Mal an ally, or just the only vampire Sydney isn't immune to?
Escape Rating B: On the one hand, I love these really short teaser books for urban fantasy/paranormal series. I get a quick introduction to the world, and I get to figure out whether I'm going to like it or not. But, but, but, it's the potato chip problem all over again. One is not enough. If I do like it, and I definitely did like this, there should be more than just a tiny taste! The whole problem with a teaser is just that, I'm left feeling teased. It's not a sensation I'm really fond of.
Don't Bite the Messenger is billed as the introduction to a series. And it reads like one. So let's have it already.
