What do you get when you mix an incubus bite with a vampire bite?
All I wanted to do was go to a bar and drown my sorrows in some alcohol, but I had to get attacked by an incubus. Now I'm being guarded by a hunky but oh so irritating vampire (who bit me too) while the incubus stalks me.
Being guarded by the sexy vampire probably wouldn't be that bad if not for the fact my perfect boss has finally noticed me. Try dating while a vampire guards you way too closely and an incubus tracks your every move, waiting to pounce.
Then there's some creepy hunter guy who also wants to kill me.
The sun wants to kill me.
Human food wants to kill me.
Don't even get me started on my family.
Life sucks after you die.
Snark, wit, a bit of romance, and plenty of action come together in this Urban Fantasy/Romantic Comedy and make for one entertaining read. The book is well-written and fast-paced, making it hard to put down as our heroine comes to grips with her fate while trying to live a normal life.
As far as heroines go, Danni is a bit of a mixed bag. She's full of snark and does speak her mind, especially with the sexy vampire, Rider. However, her self-esteem is almost non-existent. So much so that her inner musings are almost agonizing at times, but once we get the inside track on why she thinks so little of herself, it all makes sense. In this first book in the series, she's in the middle of everything and has an important decision to make regarding her fate, and all the while, she's infatuated with her boss and trying to maintain some semblance of normalcy. If that isn't enough, she also has to deal with attempts on her life and people who may not be all that they seem.
The only drawback for me is that we have more than one big bad in LIFE SUCKS AFTER YOU DIE and as a start to a series, I was surprised at how quickly things were tied up and secrets were revealed. As the first in a series, I would've expected at least a few loose ends and at least one of the major problems to be a continuing story. Considering the conclusion, I can't imagine where the story will go from here. Nevertheless, I did enjoy the read and look forward to more chuckle-worthy humor and edge of your seat action in the next book in the Twice Bitten series.
