Book Review #614 - Boys that Bite (Blood Coven Vampire #1) by Mari Mancusi


My Rating: 4/5

Source: Bought

Buy: The Book Depository


Two sisters—as different as the sun and the rain. For one, getting into the Blood Coven is to die for. But for the other, getting out could be lethal...

When Sunny McDonald gets dragged to Club Fang by her twin sister Rayne, she doesn't expect to find anything besides a bunch of Goth kids playing at being vampires. But when some guy mistakes Sunny for her dark-side-loving sister and bites her on the neck, she finds out that his fangs are real—and deadly. 

Now, Sunny has less than a week to figure out how to reverse the bite, or else she's going to end up as the perpetually undead. And not only will she be a vampire, she'll also be bonded to Magnus—the bloodsucker who bit her—forever. And forever is a really long time...

I went into this book with relatively low expectations. It had been a while since I read a vampire novel but this one reminded me how much I used to enjoy them.

The writing style reminded me a little of the Vampire Diaries series in that it has a very 1990's feel to it (even though this book was published in 2006). 

This book is pretty predictable and the characters are somewhat stereotyped (especially the main characters) - but I loved it anyway. 

There are so many takes on the whole vampire myth, but I loved that this book stayed traditional with its own unique added bits. There are no sparkling vampires in this one!

Unlike almost every other YA book, this book has a parent that actually cares. 

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and am really looking forward to continuing on with this series.
