Review: Twice Dead by Kalayna Price
Publication Date: 2/12/2010
Series: Haven #2
Rating: 4.5 Stars
Newly undead shifter-turned-vampire Kita Nekai is coming to grips with the reality that her cat has not awakened since her change. What she needs is a little time to adjust to her new liquid diet and the increasingly complex attraction to her sire, Nathanial. What she gets is a headless harlequin.
With the body count rising, Kita is dragged into a dangerous game of vampire politics. Her involvement draws the attention of an ancient vampire known as the Collector who has a penchant for acquiring the unusual—like a pureblood shifter-turned vampire. Kita still has unfinished business of her own and finds herself deeper in magical debt. It's a bad time to be a kitten who can't slip her skin
Now this is a good book!
After finding Once Bitten in the meh waters, Twice Dead fixes all of those bad feelings that I had about the series in a spectacular fashion. Price finds her stride in this book. Kita is faced with so many different trials and tribulations that it’s hard to book this book down. Being a were isn’t easy, but being the first were/vampire crossbreed is doubly hard. Kita is unique in her world, and with that, comes with an entire laundry list of hurdles to jump. Throw in the fact that she’s literal in the middle of a were-vamp pissing match between her attached ex and vampire sire, and you have one hell of a story! The tension between these three characters is off the charts, and add some sizzle and spice to an already interesting story.
This series has definitely moved up higher on my TBR list for the book that is set to release next year. I just hope the pop and sizzle of this series only continues to grow more.
