From the best-selling author of PRINCESS DIARIES comes this supernatural romance with real bite...Sick of hearing about vampires? So is Meena Harper. Meena Harper is familiar with the supernatural. After all, she 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 Lucien Antonescu-who she meets and then makes the mistake of falling in love with-a modern-day prince with a bit of a dark side for which an ancient society of vampire hunters would prefer to see him dead. The problem is Lucien's already dead. Maybe that's why he's the first guy Meena's ever met with whom she could imagine herself having a future. See, while Meena's always been able to see everyone else's destiny, she's never been able look into her own. Lucien seems to be everything Meena has ever dreamed of in a boyfriend, though he might turn out to be more of a nightmare. So now would be a good time for Meena to start learning to predict her own future ...if she has one.

I really enjoyed reading Meg Cabot's Abandon so I was looking forward to this book, especially after reading its intriguing synopsis. It certainly didn't disappoint because it was a fantastic read!
I know there are many people who are fed up with the whole vampire scene but I still love it, every new vampire story I get stuck into just completely captures my imagination and I struggle to stop reading. This book was no different, it was addictive and nail-biting with so many twists and turns that kept me on the edge of my seat. I'm pretty sure you can guess that I read this in just one day so it will be joining the ever-growing one-day read list.
Meena was a very interesting character, she had a fascinating yet cruel ability where she could see how people were going to die. From the very first chapter it's clear that she sees this ability as a curse and it's very obvious why - my heart sank as I read the last sentence of the first chapter. She soon found herself in the middle of something that was both exciting and scary at the same time, I don't think she realised what she had gotten herself into until it was too late!
I really liked Alaric the vampire hunter, he was a lonely but short-tempered character and I just enjoyed the part he played in the book. I particularly enjoyed his first meeting with Meena and her brother Jon, it was funny to me because I could picture the craziness of that moment so vividly in my mind.
I had very mixed feelings towards the vampires in this book, I just couldn't decide if I liked them or not. Lucien in particular was difficult to figure out, even after I had finished reading I didn't feel sure about his intentions.
Each chapter started with the time, date and location - I really liked this because it made it easier for me to keep up with the story.
The ending was unexpected in a good way, I thought certain things were going to happen and they didn't so I am looking forward to reading the next book Overbite to find out what happens next.
This is a dark and alluring vampire tale that had me hooked from the start.
"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
