Review: Bitten in Two by Jennifer Rardin

Bitten in Two
Release Date: November 8, 2010
Publisher: Orbit
Jaz Parks Book #7
ISBN: #9780316043786
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Jaz Parks here. I. Am. Pissed. Just as Vayl and I arrive in Morocco to secure an ancient artifact, he wakes up calling me by another woman’s name. And it’s not even a good one. But since any form of argument transforms him into an unholy terror, I’m forced to play along until the gang and I can figure out what kind of power has so vastly altered his perceptions.

So it’s time for me to do what any well-trained assassin in my position might do. I attack. What follows is a hair-raising, breath-taking bullet train ride to the finish as the crew battles on multiple fronts. I now know what I have to do – I must return to hell one last time.

The story starts out with Val having lost his memory and the crew, Jaz, Colin, Bergman, trying to find out what has happened to him and how to get his mind back to the current century. There is a TON of tension going on, Jaz being upset that Val doesn't remember her, Colin being in love with Jaz but Jaz not loving him back, The inn owner that likes Bergman but Bergman just doesn't get it, and of course the presence of the Demon Kyphos who wants Colin but Colin will never love her. I was pretty lost for most of the whole memory loss bit, It was all a bit confusing in the beginning and they hardly do anything about what they are really there for (in Morocco) until half way threw the book. Right before Val gets his current memories back it finally picks up and the actions starts, it gets much better from there. Bergman completely blew me away with some of his actions and Cole went through hell for a while and the book kinda left some stuff with him unfinished But Im sure that will be cleared up in book 8 The Deadliest Bite. The story was so unpredictable towards the end that I was glued to the pages wanting to know what else could possibly happen. If you start off reading it and want to put it down DON'T keep going it gets better.

I gave it 4/5


  1. Hiya!It's the 5th day of my rounds and I wanted to say that it's been a great adventure hearing your thoughts on all the books that you've enjoyed so far, and especially this one -- I was really quite saddened and shocked by Jennifer's recent passing, but at least her great works will continue to live on.

    I really enjoyed my visits here, and I hope to return again soon :-)
