Book Review: Boys That Bite

Title: Boys That Bite
Series: The Blood Coven (Book 1)
Author: Mari Mancusi
Published: 2006

Technically Sunshine can't get killed-because she's immortal. Well, not quite yet. Due to the worst case of mistaken identity with her dark-side-loving twin sister at a Goth club called Club Fang, Magnus, a vampire hottie, went for Sunshine's innocent neck. Now if she doesn't reverse it in time, Magnus will be her blood mate forever and she's doomed to be a blood-gulping, pasty, daylight-hating vampire. That would seriously bite.

And now, after the unfortunate slaying of the vampire leader, Sunshine, her sister Rayne, and Magnus must find the one thing that can solve her problem: the Holy Grail. They wish it were a joke but it's not. It's absolutely necessary that Sunshine gets out of this in time, because somehow she scored the hottest prom date in her school, the mouth-watering Jake Wilder. So she just can't be a vampire for the prom-let alone the rest of eternity.

My Review: The main character, Sunshine, was very likable and realistic - and loads of fun! Sunshine is spontaneous and quick-witted, and her reactions to her new "deadly" situation were very realistic.

Another fun thing about the book are all the pop culture references, Mari mentions Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Dracula, Zac Efron & Robert Pattinson, just to name a few. Very cool! It makes the book even more realistic in my mind.

This book was very good, and ended with a cliffhanger that left me wanting to read the next book in this series, Stake That!, right away!

I agree; Mari Mancusi has quite a knack for pop culture! As well as a skill for jaw-dropping cliffhangers, lol. Great review! :)
