Live and Let Bite Reviews
This third and penultimate book in the series keeps doing what it does best. Maintains the light humor, tons of action, and continued inventive ways to kill vampires. While also continuing to build up the romance between the two main characters in not the predictable path.I really like how the story line built in the first novel continues and is slowly developed. Provides the backdrop of the mystery along with a cohesive reason for the people coming after them. You can tell this was all plotted out and allowed a slow development through the series.This novel also continues to build up on his theological vampire mythos. I really love this aspect in how it relates to the action and what the vampires are capable of.This time around I happened to notice this on the copyright page.> “If you try to duplicate this for any other purpose, it will end badly for you, do we understand each other? If you don’t believe me, try it. You, me and the FBI can all have a nice chat.”
Finally, the story I've been waiting for. After two books of kick ass action and romantic tension, Live And Let Bite, the 3rd book in the Love At First Bite series by Declan Finn, gets deeper into the relationship or rather the lack there of between Marco and Amanda. There is also an unexpected answer to whether Vampires can change the state of their soul.THE STORYA centuries old vampire is after Marco. Amanda, Merle and the rest of the vampire hunting crew must figure out how to stop her before she kills them all.MY FAVORITE PARTSThis book is full of scenes I love and it's hard to narrow it down, but I'll try.The prologue. This is the start of what I've been waiting for from Marco for two books. The hook at the end is magnificent. Finally, a hook that doesn't make me want to strangle Declan. It's at the beginning where I can just turn the page to find out more, rather than at the end of the book where I have to wait for the next book to come out.There are several romantic type scenes throughout the book. My favorite though, is towards the end, where things heat up a bit in the kitchen. I've read it multiple times, because that moment just never gets old. It's one of those moments where you just want to scream YES! YES! YES! YES! OMG YES! Okay, that might just be me that does that.Marco and Amanda aren't the only ones hitting it off in this book. There are several other couples as well. Merle and his ex-wife have a thing going on too. And it looks like Bosley might have found something interesting with Enrico.THE GREATLive And Let Bite is near impossible to put down. It grabs you with the promise of a possible romance between Marco and Amanda and keeps you guessing whether they will live long enough to get to that point.The emotional level is on high in this one. Marco's mood through the first part of this book just tore me up. The raw emotion of the scenes brought Marco out as a character who has more range than just homicidal vampire killer. There is emotional depth there.Like the previous two books, the action doesn't slow down. This is what makes the book fun. There is the constant battle of good vs evil as well as a bit of mystery thrown in to keep the reader guessing.THE NOT SO GREATThere are a few little things that are more personal taste things. The "teen boy humor" sneaks in here and there. I could do without it, but it's not enough to ruin the book.
Live and Let Bite is the story of our hero, Marco Catalano and our heroine Amanda Colt, the world's finest female vampire and their battle against existential evil. This time our evil takes the form of an ancient vampire assassin. She is a little off mentally and very impressive physically. In a universe where the bane of vampires is fire she takes a daisy cutter to the face and keeps running. She shrugs off things that should kill her and just keeps fighting.Let's take a second to talk about our villain: Nualla is dark and mysterious. She comes straight at Marco and he doesn't know why. She may work for a Council which may or may not exist. What we do know is that she is definitely an evil vampire (and one of the things I really like about these books is that vampires exist on a scale similar to the Dungeons and Dragons alignment system) who is extremely powerful and has a vendetta against Marco. The reason she gives (nope, not gonna spoil it) is nebulous at best and helps set up the next book (which will get here soon, I hope).I don't generally do spoilers. They're not my thing. But I'm going to break the rule here: MARCO AND AMANDA ACTUALLY GET TOGETHER!!! And FINN DID IT RIGHT. When an author hints long term at a relationship it always makes me nervous when they finally let it happen. It often turns into a total cheesefest. The last episode of JAG comes to mind here. But Finn makes it believable. He makes it fun. He makes it awesome. This is a payoff worth waiting for. How things are going to work between a twenty-five year old mortal and a century old vampire is yet to be seen but at least they've admitted that they're both interested. Things are still in the early stages but I can't wait to see where this goes.
Series keeps getting better!http://gabixlerreviews-bookreadershea...
