Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sunny McDonald and her vampire boyfriend, Magnus, are on the run-accused of treason and wanted alive...or undead. And her twin is the slayer sent to track them down.

Rayne would do anything to save her twin sister, Sunny, from the Vampire Consortium dictator who wants her dead. Instead, she's been commissioned by Slayer Inc. to find Sunny and Magnus and deliver them to the Consortium...which Rayne knows means certain death. She also knows that if she and her boyfriend, Jareth, disobey orders, they are signing not only their own death warrants, but also those of every vampire in the Blood Coven.

As a rival slayer with a personal vendetta moves in, Rayne and Jareth must do something to stop her. So they embark on their most dangerous journey yet, deep beneath the streets of New York City and through the Gates of the Underworld. But when a greedy god demands the ultimate sacrifice, will Rayne be forced to choose between her sister...and the vampire she loves?

Synopsis:

Due to the worst case of mistaken identity with Sunshine's dark-side-loving twin sister Rayne at a Goth club, the vampire Magnus goes for Sunshine's innocent neck. Now if she doesn't reverse it in time, Magnus will be her blood mate forever and she'll be doomed to be a vampire.

Synopsis:

This is not your typical boybites-girl love story.

Technically Sunshine can't get killed-because she's immortal. Well, not quite yet. Due to the worst case of mistaken identity with her dark-side-loving twin sister at a Goth club called Club Fang, Magnus, a vampire hottie, went for Sunshine's innocent neck. Now if she doesn't reverse it in time, Magnus will be her blood mate forever and she's doomed to be a blood-gulping, pasty, daylight-hating vampire. That would seriously bite.

And now, after the unfortunate slaying of the vampire leader, Sunshine, her sister Rayne, and Magnus must find the one thing that can solve her problem: the Holy Grail. They wish it were a joke but it's not. It's absolutely necessary that Sunshine gets out of this in time, because somehow she scored the hottest prom date in her school, the mouth-watering Jake Wilder. So she just can't be a vampire for the prom-let alone the rest of eternity.

About the Author

Mari Mancusi used to wish she could become a vampire back in high school. But she ended up in another blood sucking  profession—journalism—instead. Today she works as a television news producer for the NBC station in Boston and has won two Emmys for her work. As if writing and TV producing weren't enough to keep her busy, Mari also enjoys snowboarding, clubbing, shopping, 80s music, and her favorite guilty pleasure—video games. She lives in the Boston area with her husband and two dogs.

This is the Holy Grail of vampire comedy romance dramas. Literally.

This is the Holy Grail of vampire comedy romance dramas. Literally.

Boys That Bite takes a new perspective on this somewhat overworked genre, creating a fresh look for young adult vampire novels. Like Stephenie Meyer's Twilight, the story comes from the first person perspective, but that, and the fact that they are both vampire novels, are really the only things that the two books have in common. They are extremely different. Boys That Bite is a blast of originality, and helped me revisit a genre that I almost lost hope in. It is a witty, imaginative look at love, humor, drama, and of course, vampire. So whether you?re more a Sunny or a Rayne, this book definitely deserves a read.
