Nina has experience of dealing with a human who is bitten by a paranormal creature; after all her friend Marty is now a werewolf (book 1 "An Accidental Werewolf"). Unfortunately the supernatural being who accidentally bit Nina is a vampire who leads a clan with zero tolerance towards killing humans or turning them into vampires.
Nina's memorable one liners, cusses and torrents of verbal abuse were a highlight in book 1, and in "Accidentally Dead" she is again not the type of woman to keep her opinions to herself or act with any diplomacy. Sparks positively fly between Nina and her vampire sire Gregori, yet Nina has to work through a variety of issues before things start to heat up between the pair. Included are denial (Nina will become human again, she just needs to find the head vampire and have a little chat), anger (at Greg for turning her, even if it was by accident an apology doesn't make it all right) and some serious hunger pangs (that only blood, or perhaps her pet guinea pig Larry can quench).
If anything Nina is too confrontational throughout the majority of this book, and just when I would think she needed to calm down and curb the attitude, either Greg or her friends Marty or the increasingly feisty (but still human) Wanda would put her in her place. Whilst Nina's past is disclosed and her difficulty in trusting anyone understandable, at times she let her pride get in the way and made some stupid mistakes, all of which could have been avoided if she had accepted Greg's help and not fixated on the idea he was a vampire lunatic intent on enslaving mankind. Then again, without Nina's attitude, there would have been no mayhem, fun or adventure.
