URBAN FANTASY REVIEW: Bite Marks - Jennifer Rardin


Jaz is possessed. After biting the neck of a domyter during a forced visit to his territory, she now has unwelcome voices in her head. While fighting for supremacy in her own mind, she finds herself confronted with a near-impossible task: perform perfectly on her next mission or face the unemployment line. This goal wouldn't be unreasonable, except that her newest target, the leader of a security software firm, plans on transporting a boatload of gnome larvae into NASA's deep space communication complex. Why gnomes? Let's just say that their god is a little peeved with humanity and plans on the usual: total annihilation. Joining Jaz and Vayl are their old buddies Cole, Bergman, Cassandra and Jack the malamute, each of whom has his or her own agenda. Between Cassandra's curse, Jaz's literally mental personal demons, and a host of angry gnomes, this mission is definitely going to be more complicated than any that have come before.


The latest offering in the supernatural series by Jennifer Rardin takes the intrepid team to Australia as they seek to stop an infestation from ruining the space programme. As usual there’s plenty of quips, tons of action with a few twists along the way. It gives the reader exactly what they’ve come to expect from this 007 with Vampires series and is one of my fav series currently on the trot. It’s good fun, the writing as usual is crisp and above all Jaz and Vayl continue to grow with each passing chapter. A must have. If you haven’t read the other novels in the series yet then don’t start here, you’ve missed an absolute ton of fun, so do as they say and start back with the first novel, trust me, you won’t regret it.
