Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bitten To Death I've really enjoyed reading this series! I find Jaz to be funny and quirky and sassy. And the world the author creates is really rich without getting bogged down in excess detail and complexity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved It! Jaz is back and at her best. This, the fourth book in the series, recaptures the all the fun and action of the first. While I enjoyed books two and three, they just didn't live up to the promise of the first book, but Rardin seems to have found her mojo again, because Bitten to Death rocks! Once again, uber-assissin Jaz Parks is on the trail of her number one target, the vampire terrorist Edward "The Raptor" Ramos. Along with Vayl and her twin brother Dave, Jaz finds herself in Greece where they are supposed to aid a Vampere Trust, a secretive community of vampires that once included Vayl in their number, in preventing the Trust's takeover by Santos. Unfortunately, the mission's pretty much toasted before Jaz and Vayl even arrive, because the leader who invited them to help out is dead (under mysterious circumstances) and the winner of the resulting power struggle is a wee bit insane and not to mention a bit obsessed with Vayl. So now Jaz, Vayl and David have to navigate through deadly vampire politics as they hunt down Edward Ramos and smoke him once and for all. As I said, Jaz is back and at her best. This time round things are focused pretty tightly upon Jaz, Vayl and David, although Jaz manages to make a couple new friends that will prove helpful in the future. Bergman and Cassandra pretty much are sitting on the benches for this game with Cole brought in as a last minute relief player. Even without Cassandra and Bergman to add to the banter, Jaz is in fine form and her narration provides plenty of chuckles and a few times where I'm sure you will be laughing hysterically like I was (wait until you read the scene where they kidnap Santo's dog - hilarious!) There's plenty of action and intrigue in this book, as the team investigates the secrets of the Trust and its treacherous members. The ever-changing relationship between Jaz and Vayl goes through a few major bumps as well, thanks to the interference of his ex-girlfriend Disa, the aformentioned loon who has assumed power over the Trust and who has major plans for Vayl for the next few decades. If you're looking for a fun, fast-paced supernatural adventure, the Jaz Parks series never fails to deliver. Zippy dialogue, deadly intrigue, fast paced action, an enjoyable cast of quirky characters, and locations not usually visited in urban fantasy all help to separate these books from the rest of the genre. Bitten to Death is another excellent installment in Jaz Park's adventures. Well worth checking out.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I Lost Interest I began reading the book for a few chapters and I found after a while the dates being used of 1837 were too ancient. The other characters in the book had weird and odd sounding names that were hard to pronounce and I had to pronounce them over in my head. The events that happened in the book were too strange sounding environmentally. I found it was too far fetched from the reality that I would write about for a vampire hunter and vampire novel. I found that the book and I weren't incompatible. I guess some of it is because it's fantasy and science fiction driven.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Back in the Swing of Things After being rather hard on the last Jaz Parks novel, I'm happy to say this one got me right back into the swing of things. (Makes me think I should give "Biting the Bullet" another read just to confirm my original thoughts). My favourite aspect of this story was probably David. I really like him as a character and find that he helps to ground Jaz, as well as add that human aspect to her. There's a lot of mention references in this one about Jaz's inability to connect with people, but it's not really touched on that she doesn't seem to have that problem with her brother. It seems to me this should be something should would take comfort in and it certainly bodes well for her connection with Vayl. There are leaps and bounds in this book for Vayl and Jaz, which is definitely nice to see. I found he acted far more like I was used to compared to the previous novel. The story in this one is quite intersting and I actually found myself laughing out loud on a few occasions... which definitely means I was entirely immersed. There's also a lot of foreshadowing because I certianly don't think we've seen the last of Samos... and this problem with Jaz's father should come to a head. It's mentioned on the back of the cover, so I was hoping to read more about that, but perhaps it's just a segue to the next story.
