Jaz. Is. Pissed. She and Vayl had been operating like a couple of finely carved gears…until now. Just as they’re arriving in Morocco to secure an ancient artifact that must carve the name of Jaz’s possessor into the gates of hell if he’s to be vanquished, Vayl wakes up calling Jaz by another woman’s name. And it’s not even a good one. But since any form of argument transfo...more

When we last left our heroine Jaz Parks and her team, they were battling gnomes in Australia. In this book, Jaz and the gang are in Morocco. Their mission: Find the Rocenz, a demon hammer and chisel. Their handicap: Vayl seems to think that he is Lord Brancoveanu and the year is 1777. This leads to some rather interesting situations and puts a strain on Jaz and Vayl’s relationship.

Once again the team is assembled. Bergman is still on gadget duty. He is tinkering with Astral the robokitty who no...more

So Jaz, Vayl and the whole gang are back in Morocco, but Vayl has been cursed and he thinks it's 1777. Which means he has no clue who anybody is, so he identifies them as the people that were around him at that time. They all have to play along, which turns out funny at times. But it's a very sad experience for Jaz.

After losing Matt she didn't want to feel alone again, but now she's lost Vayl. He won't remember who she is, misses her birthday and thinks she's his house maid Mrs. Bergia. And get...more

Now that Jaz is possessed, she and Vayl have been scrambling to find a way to "cure" her. They may have found the way in an ancient artifact that is located in Morocco. They thought it would be a simple smash and grab, but someone has tampered with Vayl's memory. He wakes up with him mind way back in the past, thinking Jaz is actually his very large housekeeper. She and the rest of the gang must play along less risk his destructive rath. It is a race against the clock to save both herself and Va...more

I'm torn between 2 and 3 stars.

It seems time has not made much of a difference for my relationship with this series. While I admit this installment includes a smattering of interesting details, I'm still contending with the same old issues.

Rardin displays great ideas. Her supernatural world-building incorporates many layers and factions, bringing a wide variety of dangers into play. Her Q-like character Bergman ushers in a fun amount of tech that supports the super spy theme. And her characters...more

This was the second time I tried to read this book. I gave up after 50 pages. However, I am incredibly stubborn and really wanted to finish the series, so I started over again.

The book is fast-paced, but starts in the middle of a new plot twist: Vayl has lost his memory. It isn't until almost two-thirds of the way through the book he gets it back and we realize the main plot line has been ignored until then.

There is only one book left in the series, and I have loved it up till this one. There w...more
Paranormal Haven
Jaz, Vayl and their crew have just landed in Morocco to find an artifact that will send the demon possessing Jaz back to hell. Only one problem. A mysterious curse is placed on Vayl that has him thinking he is in 1777. Now Jaz, Cole and Bergman must play the roles Vayl currently envisions them in or risk him losing his dangerous temper. They must do this while trying to find a way to lift Vayl's curse and find the artifact to save Jaz before this becomes her last mission.

I confess, I was given this book and hadn't previously read the first six installments in the series. Still, it sounded decent and I decided to give it a try. The book does a good job of filling the reader in on where the plotline is, so I was able to enjoy the book despite being a newcomer to the series.

Yes, it's yet another urban fantasy about a butt-kicking chick and her vampire boyfriend. Aside from the general descriptor, though, it's not a carbon copy of every other similarly-premised boo...more
Literary Ames {Against GR Censorship}
Love of all kinds grabs every character by the balls and squeezes which didn't always end happily. Loss has always played a big part in this series but it's showcased in a new light in this one. I found Jaz's approach to not leaving Vayl even though he wasn't himself (he'd regressed to his 1777 self and viewed everyone close to him as characters from his past), possibly permanently so, very moving. Their love letters to each other were very emotional and not cheesy in the least. I appreciated he...more

Bitten in Two starts right where Bite Marks left off with the team going from Australia to Morocco to find the Rocenz, a demon forged tool that can reduce a creature to it’s most basic elements and the only way to free Jaz from Lucifer's Assassin Brude’s possession. The night they arrived in Marrakech though Vayl developments a weird case of amnesia that has thrown him back to 1777. He doesn’t remember the last 230 years and thinks him and his trusty servants (Jaz & Cole) are in Morocco for...more

This is the 7th book in the Jaz Parks series, you do need to read previous book to understand what is going on in this book. There will be eight books total in this series with the 8th book, The Deadliest Bite, being released in June 2011. This book starts out a bit rough, but ends up being a very good addition to this series and resolves a lot of plot lines that were left hanging in the last book.

It kind of drives me crazy how Jennifer Rardin likes to jump you in the middle of a situation or relationship in her books. Usually she's nice and actually gives you descriptions of what has happened but I would really rather she had just started from the beginning. Sometimes that works in books but here it drives me up the wall.
But otherwise it was similar to previous books and was still entertaining. It was kind of sad too remembering the author's recent passing this year. I hear the last book...more

It was great to finally get around to reading this (having read all the previous ones from the local library who ony had the first six) and I loved that as soon as I started reading I was immersed into the whole world of Jaz Parks.

The action was just as intense as I remembered it being from the first six and, to add to Jaz's already numerous problems, her boyfriend/boss thinks he's living in a past time and no longer recognises any of the group as who they really are. They have to continue with...more

***3.5***

It was alright, but I wasn't as engaged as I was on earlier books. And there didn't seem to be much forward motion to the story... it read like a bridge book. Laying the groundwork for the next book, which, I hear, wraps the overall plot for the series.

Bitten in Two, the penultimate story in the Jaz Parks series, was a super slow start. Truly, it took nearly 150 pages to establish that the crew was in Marrakech and that Vayl has forgotten his memory and, to accommodate his inexplicable memory loss the crew had to assume the identities of his contemporaries ca. 1777. All good, however, explaining away--or just ignoring modern intrusions (e.g., clothing, language, cars, cell phones, traffic lights, oh everything!)--didn't really seem to work. Va...more

Loved it!!! Stalker! LOL! if yea read it you'll know what I'm talking about! A definte read! I can't wait fr the 8th book!

I began this book months ago and when I learned that Val had a sudden memory laps, I set it aside. I don't alway enjoy books where the main characters don't know who they are, especially in a series setting where their personallities have already been established. It always ends up feeling as if the author is wanting to write a different character than the one s/he created. Then I feel cheated. So I ignored Jaz, Val, Cole, Bergman and the new demon Kyphas.

On a whim, I decided to pick it up again...more

Jaz Parks is back and better than ever and even though she is finally together with her vampire boss Vayl, things are going far from smoothly. A curse has been put upon Vayl while on their latest trip and now he thinks he is living centuries in the past, way before Jaz was a born, and he sees his crew and Jaz herself as completely different people.

The CIA assasin team is in Marrakech looking for Rocenz which is a demon tool that can be split into a hammer to chisel the name of the demon Brude on the gates of hell and get him out of Jasmine's head, where he is slowly killing her. Big problem is that Vayl has been cursed and is living back in the 1700's and thinks Jasmine is his maid. Worse is thats its Jaz's birthday and the one she loves is lost and she is struggling to find a way to bring him back. Of course this is laced with the usual...more

REVIEW:
The 7th book in the Jaz Park series wasn’t my favorite but still had its kick butt action, Jazs’ sarcastic and tough girl appeal, Vayl being his charming self, and the rest of the crew dealing with the craziness that always surrounds them. I’ve been with this series since the beginning, of course, but since there was only one more book left I waited a bit to read book 7 until 8 got closer. I’m deeply saddened...more

Bitten in Two picks up right where Bite Marks left off. Our team leaves Autralia and head Morocco in search of the Rocenz, the item that will help dispel Jaz's mind possessor Brude. Of course nothing goes as planned. Once they get to Morocco Vayl loses his memory and believes that he is living his life from 1777. Unlike Bite Marks I think this book handled the surprise situation well. In Bite Marks we are dealing with three situations and trying to deal with them all at the same time which made...more

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...more

This book left me feeling conflicted with a love-hate relationship towards it. I liked it. In some cases I really liked it but in others I found it hard to read and it left me wanting to put it down. The first part of the story was intriguing with Vayl thinking he was living in the past but it was not well introduced into the story. The reader joined the plot-line after it had already been happening for three days. This felt like I was missing something and I had to catch up. It also felt like a...more

God, this book almost killed me!

In the beginning I found this book a bit boring and I couldn't get my head into the story... Maybe it was because of Vayl's absence? Mmmm maybe... It just was a bit difficult to understand some partss of the story, it went back and forward and back again and I was like "what the hell is happening? where the hell are we? when?" So I just put it aside till my head was a bit clearer.

After the first wave of boredom, I started to get interested in the story and to enjo...more

Fire & Thud by Arctic Monkeys. Do yourselves a favor, listen to this song after you read the book. You'll understand why I'm shouting this song out as a good theme song for "Bitten in Two" (Of course there a few others but this one happened to be on my iPod while I wrote this and it was an a-ha moment)

Everything I touched told me
It would be better shared with you, with you"

The penultimate book in the series has Jaz, Vayl, Cole, and Bergman in Morocco with Kyphas. They are searching for the artifact that will allow Jaz to finally be free of Brude. Only problem is that somewhere from the time they got to Morocco and the start of the book someone cursed Vayl and he is now living back in 1777 and believes that Cole and Jaz are his housekeepers the Berggia's and that Bergman is his ward. Now not only do they have to find the artifact they have to find the mage that has...more

Jaz and the gang are back! It's been awhile since I last read Bite Marks, so it took some time for me to get back into the swing of things in Jennifer Rardin's Bitten in Two.

The tension was just great! Seriously! As much as I sometimes hate it, I love it because I hate it. Vayl is living in the past, the year 1777 and he thinks Jaz is one of his old servants and Cole is her husband. It was quite comical, but frustrating as well, since Jaz was frustrated.

Jaz more than ever wants to find out who c...more

“Now he looked at the classic parked on the street and admitted, “I bought it soon after we met. I… had hoped someday I might have this chance.”
I pointed to the Galaxie. “You can’t possibly have felt like that for me then!”
He turned to gaze into my eyes, laying his chin on my shoulder as he said softly, “I have loved you with everything in me from the moment I saw you.”

“Jumping up and down is definitely sexy," Vayl assured me. "Would you like to do it two or three times right now before we get down to business?"

Sterling and Cole groaned at the same time "Ewww!”
