Format: Hardcover
Meena hates vampires. They're ruining her life.

First, they invade her work. Meena doesn't get the promotion to head writer she's been hoping to achieve. Then they announce the popular daytime drama will be adding a vampire storyline to compete with its major competition.

Second, there's a serial killer on the loose, leaving dead female bodies drained of their blood in the various parks of New York City.

Third, Meena goes out to walk her dog, Jack Bauer, in the middle of the night. She's attacked by numerous bats, but protected by a mysterious man. She almost thinks she dreamed this late night incident.

Fourth, she starts dating this man after meeting him again at a party, only to discover he's a vampire prince - ruler of all vampires. She discovers the truth about her boyfriend after a member of Palatine, Alaric Wolf, comes to warn her and worm his whereabouts out of her. She refuses to give up his location, even when she realizes that he IS the prince of darkness.

Lucien, despite his family history, seems to love Meena and wants to protect her. However, Alaric Wolf can't stand by and let that happen. He's determined to rescue Meena if it's the last thing he does.

When she puts everything together, Meena's seriously annoyed, but with a vampire war looming, which side will she end up on?

I LOVED this book. Meena is sweet with a wicked sense or humor, snarky, and feisty. Plus, she has a secret where she can see how people are going to die. Her vampire romance is sexy and sweet. Lucien's one part charming and one part dangerous. Wolf is amusing. Meena's vampire neighbors are hilarious - always causing a ruckus in the vampire world, all in the name of matchmaking.

I listened to "Insatiable" on my iPod, and must say that I really liked it! Meena is a great heroine, both witty and charming. Vampire Lucien was suitably brooding, vampire hunter Alaric was to-die-for (pun intended) and the supporting characters are also likable.

"Insatiable" is a humorous look at the current obsession with vampires --- whether it's in books, on television or in movies. Despite that, though, I wouldn't classify this book as your typical "Paranormal Romance" book. Both the story idea and execution are different from most books in that genre, and I actually found that very refreshing.

The book has a "real" ending (no cliffhanger) and yet it does a good job at setting up the sequel (which will be released in summer 2011). The love triangle isn't resolved in this book, and I'm looking forward to finding out how Meena will deal with her two very different suitors.

Another reviewer here called the book "Twilight for Adults", but I don't agree with that. The only similarity between "Insatiable" and "Twilight" is that there are vampires in both books --- that's it.

One note regarding the audio book --- I don't remember the name of the woman who read it, but she did a really great job! Her voice kinda sounds like that of the actress Anne Hathaway, and I'm pretty sure that is to blame for me seeing Ms. Hathaway as Meena in my mind (she'd actually be really great for the role if they ever make a movie out of the book) ... ;o)

To start with I am a huge Fan of the adult fiction Meg Cabot has written, I loved the Heather Wells mysteries and the queen of babble series. So when I came across this book I nearly couldn't contain myself (I do like a good vampire that doesn't sparkle). I read it on the way to work, on my way home, on my lunch break and after I put the children to bed, I just couldn't put it down. I am now eagerly awaiting the next book which I have pre-ordered.

By Me, My Books and I on 1 Sept. 2012
Format: Paperback
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.
