Insatiable by Meg Cabot (Book Review 2010-81)

Product Description

Sick of hearing about vampires? So is Meena Harper.
But her bosses are making her write about them anyway, even though Meena doesn't believe in them.
Not that Meena isn't familiar with the supernatural. See, Meena Harper knows how you're going to die. (Not that you're going to believe her. No one ever does.)
But not even Meena's precognition can prepare her for what happens when she meets—then makes the mistake of falling in love with—Lucien Antonescu, a modern-day prince with a bit of a dark side. It's a dark side a lot of people, like an ancient society of vampire hunters, would prefer to see him dead for.
The problem is, Lucien's already dead. Maybe that's why he's the first guy Meena's ever met whom she could see herself having a future with. See, while Meena's always been able to see everyone else's future, she's never been able look into her own.
And while Lucien seems like everything Meena has ever dreamed of in a boyfriend, he might turn out to be more like a nightmare.
Now might be a good time for Meena to start learning to predict her own future. . . .
If she even has one.

LOVED IT

It took me a couple chapters to get into this book and then the light bulb went off over my head.  It is a satire on all of the vampire books that are popular right now and Cabot does a superb job at being serious about the subject and ensuing romance while poking fun at the same time.   I hope I am taking the tone of this book correctly since it confused me a little bit.  If I am correct, then it is brilliantly done.  There is a lot of clever play on the Dracula theme, right down to the character names.  Overall, it was an enjoyable read.  I think that even though this is an adult book, older teens can enjoy it as well.
