Morrigan's Bite - Book Review


Morrigan's Bite (Crow's Curse #2)
by Laura Bickle

What is it about:
Becoming a vampire was the worst thing to ever happen to Garnet Conners. But does she have to become a monster, too?

Garnet had a beautiful life…and it was stolen from her when she was turned into a vampire against her will. Once a successful trauma surgeon with good friends, she now finds herself hiding out in the basement of a coven house governed by hostile witches. Struggling with her vampiric urges, she despairs of ever returning to her former life.

Garnet’s discovered that she’s an incarnation of the legendary Morrigan. She dreams in blood, of the Morrigan’s other bloodthirsty incarnations over the centuries. Garnet’s dreams reveal her previous existence as Erzebet Bathory, and Garnet fears becoming that monster once again.

With the help of the witches, she attempts to learn to use her magical powers to control her vampiric nature…an experiment that ends in disaster. When her sister and friend go missing, Garnet knows she’s being hunted by vampires who will stop at nothing to bring her back into their fold.

Merrel, the vampire who turned her, offers her a bargain. He will return the abducted women, but Garnet must agree to spend three nights with him, training as a vampire. Garnet reluctantly accepts, but she fears giving in to her vampire nature and becoming the killer of the previous lifetime she’s reliving in her dreams.

What did I think of it:
This is yet another great read!

Garnet has to learn what it means to be a vampire. She doesn't like it at all and with the help of the witches she tries to look for loopholes so she can live her life as she wants.

She is afraid to become closer to the mortal Sorin, and there's the dreams she has of her former lives where Merrel was her lover. I have my favorite and that's Sorin, I can tell you. Merrel seems like a huge jerk. I like the witches better than the vampires overall in this book, to be honest.

I was hooked from the start and was eager to see what choices Garnet would make. And then the stakes got raised when her sister and a character I really liked in the first book get abducted. The character didn't get too much screen time this book (what with being abducted and all), but it seems like there might be more about her in the last book.

All in all a great read, and I'll pick up the last book soon.

Why should you read it:
It's a cool Urban Fantasy read with witches, vampires, and lots of crows.
