Bite Me by Parker Blue
An edgy book for teens that spans the gap between YA and adult fiction. Life after high school is tough enough without having to go 15 rounds with your inner demon. Val Shapiro is just your ordinary, part-demon, teenaged vampire hunter with a Texas drawl. And a pet hellhound named Fang. Soon enough she finds herself deep in the underbelly of the city, discovering the secrets of the Demon Underground and fighting to save those she loves. Whether they love her back or not.
Val Shapiror is a teenager who is out of high school and trying to find her place in the world. Her parents have decided to kick her out of the house with no job and no money because they feel as though she is a bad influence on her younger sister, Jen. This leaves Val to have to discover herself while tyring to find a place to live and control the demon living inside of her. That's right, demon. Through her journey she meets Fang, a part hellhound part regular dog, animal. She learns more concerning the Demon Underground and the lives of Vampires in the city. She also becomes part of a secret task force meant to rid the city of Vampires. The book leads to Val needing to save many of the people she loves or be taken out by the Vampires.
I would say this book was okay. I would not have purchased it from Amazon if it was not a free Kindle book. I will admit that I have yet to find a free Kindle book that would have been worth the actual price. I wasn't deeply entertained by this book, nor did I feel a need to keep reading. I found it boring at times with no real plot line to follow. I will not be reading any further books in this series. I don't feel as though this first book was interesting enough to continue on and hope things get better. Instead, I will be moving on to *hopefully* better books.
