I'm Lucille Robinson (aka Jaz Parks).

This is a mission unlike anything my vampire boss, Vayl, and I have ever been on. It's not our usual take them out and run; it's an undercover mission that needs the whole gang: a psychic, an interpreter, and a weapons specialist. We're joining a Special Ops team to nail the Wizard, a major terrorist thorn in the military's side. We've never gone in with such heavy artillery before, but the more the merrier, right? Um . . . nope. At least not since Vayl and I learned part of our job is to ferret out a mole concealed in our unit.

To add to our problems, we're being harried by a pack of reavers bent on revenge, and targeted by a Seer who wants to share Vayl's power - at any cost. Oh yeah, and let's not forget the army of demonic, soul-sucking parasites either. This is going to be a blast.

I’m on the fence about this series. I like it but do not love it. I keep reading to see what happens but I found myself skimming this installment just to get to the end of it.

So far this series is written with more internal monologue (in Jaz’s head) than actual dialogue and it gets a little much. I want more interaction between the characters.

Don’t get me wrong the characters are great but I’m ready for something to happen romantically between Jaz and Vayl or Jaz and Cole. The whole will they, won’t they is driving me nuts.

I enjoyed the Once Bitten, Twice Shy (1st) & Another One Bites the Dust (2nd) more than this one but I will continue the series to see where it leads.

The thing with reading series, there is usually one that stands out as the “stinker” and I’m hoping this is it for Jaz Parks and that the next one, Bitten to Death, will be better.

I coexist with my husband of 15 years, our 11-year-old son and two chilled cats in the Deep South.

After 17 years I've finally finished my BA in English (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not have touched anything labeled "classic", but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my college career.

While I hated to read growing up, I am now an avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction within my favorite (at least to date) genres which include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly PNR or UF from favorite adult authors, but I'm slowly stepping out of my comfort zone after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in adolescent literature class I took).
