Meena Harper has agreed to use her special gift for sensing when people are going to die to help the Palatine – an organization that seeks out and destroys demons. It also just so happens that their biggest enemy and target is the prince of darkness and Meena’s recently ex-boyfriend, Lucien Antonescu.
Meena told Lucien she couldn’t run away with him and be turned into a vampire, and he seemingly disappeared from her life forever. But when she is attacked by another ex-boyfriend, Lucien comes to her rescue and reveals that he’s been watching over her the whole time.
Things get complicated when Meena starts to fall in love with Lucien again and even more complicated when Meena realizes she might have feelings for her co-worker, Alaric.
Should Meena go with her gut that tells her that vampires really do have the choice to be good or evil, or should Meena listen to Alaric – who says that all demons are evil?
Meena Harper’s life unravels for the upteenth time as new dangers arise and threaten not only Meena and the Palatine, but her friends and family as well.
The characters in Overbite are like any characters created by Meg Cabot: three dimensional and simply incredible. I loved all the characters in both Insatiable and Overbite, however, a few of them seemed to be there just to move the story along.
I especially loved Meena’s brother, Jon, and his crazy antics to get hired by the Palatine, like inventing a gun to shoot a UV ray at vampires, thus causing them to burn. I also loved his man-crush on Alaric; it was such a nice touch that made his character come even more alive.
While Insatiable was heavier on romance, I loved the fact that Overbite had more action – it resulted in fewer slow moments and filler chapters. Meg Cabot definitely took a step up with this second addition to the Insatiable series. Overall, I was pleasantly surprised with the direction she took this series and a lot of questions were answered for me. I would recommend this series to fans of Meg Cabot or urban fantasy and paranormal romance genres.
