This book picks up several days after Bite Me. For closure Val goes to Lily’s funeral. She talks to Michah there and finds out that the set of books she inherited from her father were actually stolen from Micah’s dad and agrees to return them during a “social mixer” for the demon underground. At the gathering the vampires are also there to speak to the demons about their “coming out” to the general public. The demons are against it and there ensues a fight. During the fight the books go missing. ...more

In this next part of the Half demon Val, she is just coming to terms that there are others out there like her. And realizing more and more that there are good vamps and bad vamps. But in this book is basically about the encyclopedia's her father had given to her. Come to find out they were stolen from the Demon Underground many years ago, and unknowingly Val has been the caretaker of these books. She decides to do the right thing and give them back to Micah, so the Demon underground has access t ...more

3.5 out of 5

Back again with 1/8 succubus and badass vampire hunter Val Shapiro, Parker Blue's Try Me doesn't ignore the events of the just-ended Bite Me, but nor does it continue along on the same plotline. Instead of focusing on Val/Dan/Fang vampire hunting for the supernatural police force of the Supernatural Crimes Unit, Val is much more involved with the titular Demon Underground in the second outing of the series. I liked the shift of focus fro

Okay. So this was an improvement over the first one. Slightly, at least.

Plot: 3/5
Hold up. I just said this was an improvement, but the plot rating for book 1 was 3.5/5, I know.
THe reason is this: There was plot in this book. it wasn't really quite as, um, action-y, as book 1, though, this morer evolved around a whodunit sort of thing, as in, who stole those book and who is killing these vampires? Which isn't a problem. Whodunit's are totally okay with me.

Original Post: Try Me Review

Try Me is the second installement in the Demon Underground series. It picks up straight after Bite Me (Book1) and its another great novel in the series.

Try Me follows Val as she is trying to cope with Dan ignoring her. So as Dan is pushing her away. She ends up in the arms to Shade, a shadow demon who is trying to help Val control her lust demon and its pretty clear that there is a chemistry between them and an attraction that is sizzling. Meanwhile some of the vamps

Buffy needs to watch out. This girl can kick some Vamp butt!
I'm reading the second book in the series now and though I've been extremely busy, I plan on reading the whole series. Parker Blue gives just enough chemistry to keep you reading just to see if the characters are going to take it to the next level: Will they or won't they? Or, will she end up with the leader of the Vampires? Keep reading to find out.

It still feels a little like I'm reliving my Buffy glory days with this one. It is just a fun read. This time, we get to see more of the Demon Underground - other half-demons (especially Shade), with more interesting powers, a lost book of magic, more dealings with vampires, and overall things are getting more interesting. And Fang, the half-terrier, half-hellhound is still there, of course.

The romance in this one seems more appropriate (that's the best way I can describe it). I'll read the next

An excellent follow-up addition to the Demon Underground series. I was eating out of the palms of Parker Blue's hands!

In "Try Me," tensions are especially high between the vampires and demons of San Antonio. The vampires have revealed their intentions to come out to the public, make themselves known. The problem is, this would potentially out the existence of demons as well, and none are certain they wish to make their presence known. Who could blame them? Humans have not often demonstrated the

Book two in the Demon Underground series, once again I was drawn into this series. Val, our heroine, is such an entertaining character. Fang, her faithful bloodhound is probably my favorite character. I love how we learned more about Val, diving deeper into her past, and demon heritage.
I love that Shade was given more page time too, he is such a fantastic character.
As for Dan, oh Dan. I wanted to continue to like him, I really did. But in this book...and how it's done, I didn't like it, it was

Another fantastic, fun, funny read by Parker Blue! I know I"m really late to this series but I did really enjoy this book.

Now that we've been introduced to the main players, Val has a lot on her plate. That plate is about to get even more full, as vamps and demons reach a crossroads.

I thought Val was a little more grown up in this book, though still figuring things out - as it should be. We get to see more of Shade, Gwen, and a few other characters, and we also got to meet a lot more demons.

Encontré estos libros yo sola, sin ninguna recomendación. Empecé a leerlos y eran interesantes, con una protagonista agresiva y con una personalidad un tanto bipolar.
Val Shapiro. No sé cómo decir esto sin ofender, pero esta chica tiene serios problemas. Aparte de hecho de que es un octavo demonio o como quieras llamarlo, tiene muy poco sentido común y unas ganas de acabar muerta que no son normales. La ironía fluye de ella como un río, y hay veces a lo larg

Sometimes sequels to books are not as good as the first installment. However, I am happy to say that "Try Me" is just as good as the first book in the Demon Underground Series.

Val Shapiro has been placed on paid leave from her job with the SCU (Special Crimes Unit) until such time she is able to control her newly developed succubus thrall power. She understands why this has happened but she is a little saddened that her partner and love interest, Dan

I am totally loving this series. I read the first book in this series, Bite Me, and immediately picked up book 2, I was so hooked on it, I knew I needed to read them all right away.

I am definitely enjoying Blue's writing style, and just like book 1, this one pulled me in right away and kept me interested through the entire book, I just couldn't read fast enough.

In book 2, we learn more about Val/Lola and her background, some about her childhood, and more about the other characters. There's a gre

Try Me is the second book in the Demon Underground series. I liked this book more than the first. The plot was good. I was intrigued and guessing until the end about who stole the Encyclopedia Magicka. It had the clever dialogue I enjoyed so much in the first book. We see a softer and more emotional side of Val over the course of Try Me. I feel she is evolving as a character, and I was able to connect with her. That is something I couldn’t say after finishing the first book. Unfortunately, the p ...more

Try me is the follow on from the book "Bite Me", and begins days after the ending of the first book.

In this book Val learns so much more about both the human and demon parts of herself, dealing with other demons, vampires, her family and of course boys!

She is such a great character, and although she is often called "The Slayer", she seems to be the calm between the demons and vampires.

This book revolves around finding the magic books that Val has given to Micah, which have been stolen. The books

Val Shapiro is 1/8th Succubus Demon, she has incredible strength, speed, as well as her other senses being enhanced. Oh...and the occasional man being uncontrollably filled with lust around her. All of these bonuses to her life make her the perfect vampire slayer / Special Crimes Unit operative / member of the Demon Underground / and Vampire Mediator.

Triumphant second book in a wonderful YA urban-fantasy series

I received this series as a three book package deal from Netgalley, so I'm going to review it as such. Surprisingly, I had never heard of this series but I was drawn to it because it is about vampires and I rarely turn down a book that is about vampires or werewolves. I am so glad that I requested this as I absolutely loved it. It's not just about vampires, but demons too. One of those demons is our fabulous protag, Val Shapiro, otherwise known as The Slayer, who is 1/8 succubus.

Fun, Fun read. This is the second offering in the Demon Underground series, and I plan to follow up with the prequel and next book. The book can stand independent from the first book, and is fast paced. The characters are engaging, but there are alot of them that haven't been fleshed out yet. I anticipate the author exploring these other characters as the series continues, which is encouraging.

I was able to get the first three copies of the Demon Underground series through Netgalley as a package deal, "Bite Me", "Try Me", and "Fang Me". I believe the fourth book, "Make Me" is supposed to come out sometime in Spring, 2012. I actually really enjoyed the series. When I first got the books, and I saw the titles and also the fact that the main character, Val, is supposed to be a 1/8 succubus demon (lust demon), I thought for sure, this would be one of those urban fantasy, erotic books.

Val is just a vampire slayer, succubus demon whom is misunderstood. I love the character of Val! She is very brave, bold and a spitfire full of energy. (Lola does help a bit)

The book starts out with everyone calming down after finding out that Lilly had been the traitor. Dan had said that he was okay with whom Val was, but now he is ignoring her. She is feeling insecure and having a hard time keeping control over Lola. Val goes to Micah for help

So, I don't want to be redundant and go over all the content. There are many reviews here that do a much better & more thorough job of that than I would.

This cover was just as great as the first book, as well as the title, brilliant! So, I am sure I had already mentioned this in the review of book one, but here goes nothing: I LOVE VAL SHAPIRO. I mean, with a lot of Twilight, Vampire Diaries and True Blood around, you're kind of sick of the vampires being the protagonists and all good, except for a few bad ones. I kind of miss having all vampires be bad and a select few be good, so Parker Blue's books are awesome, especially since the protagonis ...more

Try Me continues the story of Valentine "Val" Shapiro, our 18 year old heroine who's 1/8th succubus demon. The story picks up right after the events in the first book, Bite Me. Val's figured out in the previous book that her attempts to keep Lola, her succubus demon, under wraps and as a separate piece of herself was failing miserably. In addition, she's becoming more attached to and interested in the Demon Underground and also drawn into the world of the vampires.
