Bitten in Two (Jaz Parks #7)
So it's tim ...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
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
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
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

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
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 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.
"The day after you stole my heart
Everything I touched told me
It would be better shared with you, with you"
Knowing that this was going to be the second to last book in the Jaz series, I am igno ...more

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

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 transforms Vayl into an unhol ...more
I'll start with the things I didn't really like first. The plot was murky, at best, opening with the lost memory of one of the main characters and not really understanding how and when it showed up. This was accompanied by an unfunny, uninteresting charade played out by each member of the team to keep time with the lost memory. We didn't even really know why the team was in a foreign country until h ...more

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
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

OK, this book was exciting and had a good plot and a lot of character development...BUT, you knew there was a but in there, right? Anywho, as I said this book was fun, thrilling and about as snarky as you'd expect from the author, but the whole first half seemed to me like a huge delaying tactic.
So, Vayl, our romantic interest and fellow lead character, thinks the year is 1777, and our heroes must fix this sad state of affairs, all the while feeling all angsty, because (a) protagonist Jaz can't...more

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