Jaz Parks here.

My latest mission has taken me to the ancient Greek city of Patras; but instead of soaking up its splendor, I'm here to infiltrate a Vampere Trust.

Only two vamps have ever escaped the tightly bound communities and lived to tell the tale: Edward "The Raptor" Samos, the most reviled criminal mastermind in recent memory, and Vayl, the CIA's number one assassin,

Disclosure: I secretly enjoy this series. It reminds me of a favorite TV series – Alias, only with paranormal creatures.

This installment pits Jaz’s crew against a scary and get this – tentacled – vampire Disa in creepy castle extraordinaire. Jaz, Vayl, and Dave are supposed to meet Hamon Eryx at said creepy castle, but he is nowhere to be found. Instead, they are greeted by Disa and her vampire posse.

Jaz finds out some rather disconcerting news about Vayl, news that threatens their budding roma

Oh, Jaz Parks. Why do I have such a difficult time with you?

In this installment, we learn more about Vayl's past as he and Jaz visit his former Vampere Trust. Nothing goes according to plan on this mission, but when does it ever?

Rardin's world of CIA assassins and vampire bonds has potential, which I suppose is why I keep reading. But this book, like the others, strikes me as "almost"--there's almost character growth, the plots are almost detailed, the action is almost exciting...

Another good book of this serie but I was obligated to give only 3 stars.

I miss a lot some Jaz Parks characters that don't appears on this book, and that was really a pity (and I believe that anyone how is following this serie will agree)

Some technical observations of this book:
1) It's only Jaz (obviously, as she still is the only narrator), Vayl and Dave on this story.
2) The story is very good! Jennifer Rardin is really a amazing writer and this book is the prove. It's a tough task to create

This book was very confusing. I really liked the first three of this series, but the dots between the emotional arcs of the characters was very muddy in this one. Also, the two main characters need to get it on already, LOL.

Bitten to Death is the fourth book in the Jaz Parks series by Jennifer Rardin. This one like the 3rd book was a little slow in my opinion. There was not enough action and I kept waiting for something to happen between Jaz and Vayl. I understand this is an Urban Fantasy series and the romance part isnotusually "in-your-face" like in paranormal romance but come on, four books and still no hanky-panicky?! I'm sure I am feeling just a frustrated as Vayl.

Jaz, Vayl and Dave are teamed up in this installment to enter into an agreement with a Vampere Trust in orfer to get a shot at their number one target, The Raptor. This particular Trust holds particular danger for Vayl as it was the very one he escaped from a very long time ago. Not only is animosity towards him high, but one member in particular has her sights set on Vayl. Jaz and Vayl have face a lot in the past, but the tangled web being weaved may just be enough to ensnare them for good.

Mon avis en français

My English review


Quand je pense que ça fait un temps fou que je n’ai pas lu de Jaz Parks… J’avoue que je voulais vraiment lire ce tome en français étant donné que je les ai tous dans cette langue. Mais finalement il est vrai que j’ai attendu vraiment longtemps et j’ai oublié aussi pas mal de choses au sujet de l’histoire. Je ne sais pas si c’était finalement une bonne idée, j’aurais peut-être dû passer à la VO. Mais c’est vrai que je me pose la question une nouvelle fois main

I love this series. It's a good mix of sarcasm, love, FBI-esque action, and vampires. Not to mention that Jas is one of the funniest characters in a book i've ever read.

Ich wollte das Buch so lieben, aber dafür stand einfach zu viel im Weg. Der Einstieg fiel mir ja besonders schwer - man wird mitten in die Handlung geworfen, es gibt keine Rückblicke, mit Namen etc. wird um sich geworfen. Zum Problem wurde das, weil es Jahre her ist, dass ich den dritten Teil gelesen habe. Und ich da noch auf Deutsch gelesen habe und man die Unterschiede schon merkt bzw. dass man bei einigen Dingen erst umdenken muss.
Dazu kommt, dass sich die Charaktere hier so untypisch verhal

It’s been so long since I read the last book in the Jaz Parks series that I’d almost forgotten what an absolutely fantastic series this is! By far one of the better series in the paranormal genre I just can’t get enough of the heart stopping action, romance, and paranormal creatures. Rardin has a great talent for creating realistic paranormal characters and, at the same time, keeping them from becoming as cheesy as they sometimes

More of a 3.5 BUT it is mostly just due to a couple of factors.

- Severe lack of Cole. Other than some text messages he is mostly absent.
- Bergman and Cassandra are also missing.
- Dysa makes me angry deep in my special angry place. She is what I imagine those little girls from Toddlers & Tiaras will grow up to be like. She was just such a spoiled brat which ruined a lot of her badassery since she was set up as the 'big bad' of this book.
- Dave is the only 'side-kick'.

This is a Series Review:

A kick-ass heroine, a hot vampire boss, quirky and fun sidekicks and a lot of action and adventure… What else can you ask of an Urban Fantasy series? The Jaz Parks series by Jennifer Rardin definitely has all that and so much more.

Jaz is an assassin’s assistant for the CIA. She works for Vayl, a Vampire who was killed by his Vampire wife almost 300 years ago. From the start we get to see that they have a great working relationship that has

Jaz, Vayl, and Dave are in Greece working with Vayl's former Trust (think vampire nest) in an effort to resolve its compromised line of succession which has become entangled by an agreement of some sort with their longtime nemesis Edward Samos. Things are not what they seem and even the very house seems to be working magic against the team. Dave is drinking and very much off his game, Cole is texting every five minutes from his first solo mission halfway around the globe, and Jaz is uncharacteri ...more

This, so far, is the best in the series. Set in Greece, Bitten to Death takes us back to Vayl's Trust (similar to a coven, just with Vampires). In this installment we get more of a glimpse into Vayl's past before he started working for the CIA. There's finally an opportunity to get to Samos but they need a breif alliance with the Trust. Little do they know, but things aren't going to go quite as planned.

In this book e get Jaz, Vayl, and Dave teamed up. The rest of our group are off the page for

I chose to read this book just a few days ago after hearing about the unexpected death of the author this past Monday, Sept 20. Jennifer, your fans will sorely miss you! Rest in peace.

The series is urban fantasy with enough simmering, teasing sexual tension to keep us PNR lovers happy. Jaz is a special agent for a paranormal division of the government. Not too long ago a mission went very badly - Jaz died but came back with strange new powers. Now she's working in an even more secret division a

I've tried to like Jaz Parks, I really have but to me she just isn't that likeable. I mean, she's okay, there's just such a lot of things she says and does which fall under the category of really rather irritating. Having said that, these books are starting to look up a little. The plot for this one revolves around yet another improbable scenario and whilst I know I'm reading urban fantasy and expect there to be the elements there something doesn't work for me and I'm not sure why.

I have been extremely fond of this series and that has just continued with Bitten to Death. In book four Jaz and Vayl are teamed up with her brother Dave, who has some issues to work out after Biting the Bullet. Jaz is desperately trying to bring him back from the edge, while covering Vayl's back as they go to investigate dangerous happenings at his old Trust, all while trying to maintain her own sanity. Setting up the team differently from the last three books (keeping Cassandra, Bergman and Co ...more

Recommends it for: UF Fans, Supernatural Bond Fans, Jaz Parks Fans
First Read: JAN 20/2011

This series just keeps getting better. I love Jasmine and Vayl working and flirting together. The heat between them is explosive and if they don't do something soon - they're bound to explode!

Jaz is a smart, sassy, short fused, emotionally disturbed, crazy CIA agent. Vayl is a 290 year old vampire who is aesthetic perfection, but is just as emotionally disturbed as Jasmine. I firmly believe they'll get their HEA and I'm just waiting for it to happen.

It's nice to see Jaz o

They struck an agreement with the Trust’s Deyrar, Hamon, to ambush Stamos during an agreed-upon meeting. Everything’s set and should run smoothly but this is Jaz Parks we’re talking about and nothing is that simple in her life. Upon arriving at the Trust the gang discovers that the Trust has a new leader with deep & tangled ties to Vayl. Can Jaz & Vayl ov ...more

Jaz Parks est une série que j'aime beaucoup. Elle réunit tout ce que j'aime en matière de Bit-Lit, c'est-à-dire une héroïne qui ne manque pas de caractère, un vampire charismatique, une histoire d'amour compliquée, de l'action, des personnages secondaires sympathiques et des intrigues avec des créatures surnaturelles en tout genre. Je trouve que Jennifer Rardin a su trouver le bon équilibre entre tous ces ingrédients et le mélange est pour moi une réussite.

Vous pouvez retrouvez cet avis dans son intégralité sur mon blog Lecture Toute une Aventure où il a été publié en premier.

Style:
Jennifer Rardin avait vraiment la plume pour ce genre de récit, l’histoire est captivante et les aspects psychologiques qui définissent ses personnages sont bien documentés et institué dans le cours de l’histoire. L’intrigue principale, parsemée d’intrigues secondaires, est bien ficelée et Jennifer nous entraîne dans son univers très facilement.

This is the fourth book in the Jaz Parks series by Jennifer Rardin. It was pretty much on par with the third book of the series as far as quality goes. I am still enjoying these books but I thought that this book was marginally less great than the other books.

In this book Jaz, Vayl and David return to Vayl's old Vampere Trust. They have an agreement with the leader of the Trust that they hope will lead to the assassination of Edward Samos, the Raptor. Unfortunately when they arrive they find tha

Another excellent addition to the Jaz Parks Series! Re-Read worthy!!!

Recommend: Jaz Parks fans. Think Jason Bourne meets Cat and Bones it makes for one intense ride.

Highlights:
*They have to visit Vayl's former Trust in order to take Edward Samos out.
*All hell breaks loose when Jaz meets up with Disa, Vayl's former mate and lover. Sparks fly and fires follow and not the way you think.
*The house has a life of it's own. Stephen King would be proud.
*Jaz meets and enlists the help of werewolves and w

Quite a turn-around for the series. This book takes most of the friends away to off-stage stuff and lets us focus back on Jaz and Vayle, with her brother around for some much-needed contrast.

The three are in Italy at the compound of a small group of vampires that Vayle has a complicated history with, supposedly working with them to set a trap for Samos, the big bad guy behind the smaller bad guys of the past 3 books. We get vampire politics, Vayle's complicated history, David's shell-shock from

Jaz's latest mission has taken her to the ancient Greek city of Patras; but instead of soaking up its splendor, she's supposed to to infiltrate a Vampere Trust. Only two vamps have ever escaped the tightly bound communities and li

Bitten again

Great novel with unexpected turns and twists such in bring into the mix werewolves backing with werebears, sweet. More kissing between Vayl and Jas nice but they need to get serious in the next novel. Even with the age different when did that a vamp from getting serious with their mate. I know they both have hang- ups but give your reader's a brake and get on with it. I still suggest newcomers to Jaz Parks novels to come on board and start reading the trilogy.
