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 that 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.

3 out of 5
I loved how Alaric called his sword "Senor Sticky"... Something funny from a character who seemed to have a corn cob up his ass & a chip on his shoulder.
Mena was a bit too naive for me. I kind of wish that she would have been a bit more... Something. I don't know, it just feels that Mena was missing something.
Lucien did seem to be more of a hero than a villain to me. He did everything he could to save the day. I didn't like that he was treated as a villain. That really bugged me.
I found the idea of the Palantine army still existing as a secret sect to fight evil to be real interesting.
Overall, this was a cute novel, though not an easy read. It was just really slow, and seemed to be missing pieces. Personally, I don't think I'll read the rest of this series. If you want to read it give it a chance.
