Okay, first, did I miss something? I thought this was meant to be a duology; why is there another book?

So, since I have a feeling that this review might be a bit of a mess, here is a little TL;DR. I was really enjoying the book; I thought it would end up with a good rating. But then the end hit, and it seriously threw me off, and last night when I finished, I was seriously angry with the book. Today, when I slept on the review, I'm just disappointed.

So, back to the review.

"Can’t you resist being sleazy for five minutes?”
Ian gave her his most innocent grin.
“Me? Innocent as a lamb, I am.”

Oh Ian! I have no idea how he managed to become my favorite after his start in the Night Huntress series, but it happened. Veritas isn’t the only one he’s winning over! After the ending of the first book, I’ve been counting down the days until I had Wicked Bite in my hands.

“I wanted to remember his cocky grin, his quick wit, his bone-deep loyalty and his ferocious courage.”

SHADES OF WICKED was fucking amazing and I need this so badly, like you don't even know.

Also, back off bitches. Ian is mine. I will shank you with a vampire fang.

I loved this book! It is no secret that I adore the entire Night Huntress universe. Ian has always been a great character and I was thrilled when I learned about this spin-off series featuring his character. I loved the first book in the Night Rebel series, Shades of Wicked, and couldn't wait to get my hands on this newest book. Let's just say that I went into this book with sky-high expectations and I wasn't disappointed. This book

It’s been a long time coming. I feel like I have been waiting for this story for forever and I think with that came a lot of expectations. WICKED BITE is book two in the Night Rebel series. Because I was such a fan of the original Night Huntress series, I was looking forward to seeing what Frost would do for Veritas and Ian.

The best thing about this book is that Frost stays true to the beloved characters of the series. Their personalities came out strong in this series, which I think will make

Jeaniene Frost is a sure bet for a good time. WICKED BITE is par for the course. I was eager to finally continue after the cliffy of SHADES OF WICKED she left us hanging with. Please mind that it is vital you read the first book before you read this one. I also want to point out that you may enjoy

3.5 - 4 Wicked Stars!!

This book starts right where Shades of Wicked left off with Ian having vague memories and determined to recover his memories and more importantly find Veritas. He’s finally reunited with Veritas who took every opportunity to ditch Ian but Ian was tenacious and he wasn't having any of it!! They finally come to an understanding and decide to work together to finish what they started with Dagon.

Sheena ☆ Oh, the Sheenanigans!

Wow. Wow. Wow. This was hot.

All jokes aside, I seriously can't remember the last time I read a decent vampire (or supernaturalish) novel, so kudos to the author for doing such a great job bringing these characters to life. The storyline that was engaging and engrossed me enough in the read nearly left me speechless, the dynamic relationship between Veritas and Ian was superb and their connection was swoonworthy. Just knowing that she meant something even after all his memories were erased

My heart hurts.

My most anticipated read of the year and it didn't meet my expectations... how sad is that? Shades of Wicked was just too good to live up to...

Some SPOILERS ahead, proceed at your own risk
First of all, I loved the amnesia turnabout in book one but now I kinda wish Jeaniene Frost hadn't used it and just let them continue their amazing chemistry without interrupting it.

The magic was just gone. Veritas spilled everything pretty early on (I
It is a truth universally acknowledged that there is a dud in every J. Frost series (see Up From The Grave and Bound By Flames), please gawd let this be it.

If you would have told me during the first few books of the Night Huntress series that
A – I was going to love Ian


B – His books would be better than Vlad’s.

I would have called you a dirty liar.


But it is totally true and the reason for that isn’t just Ian but it is also Veritas. She is such a cool character with a lot happening and she is the perfect match for Ian in every way.
“Clever, calculating, and cruel.” Ian’s voice dropped to an insinuating purr. “No wonder I married you.”

I can't even. THE ENDING! Can someone say plot twist???
Jude: The Epic Reader
This was my most anticipated release of 2020.. it wasn't exactly a disappointment. It just wasn't as excited as the first book. and I felt like the twist at the end has been used in Frost's books before in her other vampire series.

Wicked Bite is the second book in Jeaniene Frost’s Night Rebel series, and having the loved the first book, I assumed I was in for a good read with this one. But I was letdown, and it reminded me that Jeaniene Frost, even within a series, is so hit or miss for me.

This book begins with an Ian and Veritas separation, but it doesn’t really last long, because they reunite fairly quickly, as a main character can’t be without her prop for long, right? I’m not going to sugar coat it -

I might be biased, I have loved Ian all along, but this was an awesome book! I loved it as much as if not more than the first Night Rebel book. Ian and Veritas are probably my new favorite fictional couple. Which is saying a lot.

OMG, what a ride! If you thought you knew Ian from his appearances in earlier books, you really don't. He and Veritas are an amazing couple and this second installment of their story was a non-stop roller coaster filled with surprises. When's the next one due again? Because I, for one, can't wait!

On one hand I have been waiting for Ian’s story what it feels like all of my life. On the other hand, I am kind of over the over dramatic love story where the heroine can’t quite believe that the male protagonist is in love with her—because reasons. BUT I do like a good role reversal—Veritas being the one trying to protect Ian from the bad things that happen in her world while Ian keeps reminding her that HE DOESN’T NEED PROTECTING. Usually the roles are reserved, so it is a nice chance of pace. ...more

This was a very, VERY anticipated sequel! Ian's and Verita's story had its clutches on me ever since the first book! I loved them as a couple and the story was captivating from the first page!

In this sequel, Ian and Veritas must stop a power-hungry demon, fight countless enemies and discover more secrets. We are taken on a road trip through the planet from Egypt and Greece to Japan and
Sissy's Romance Book Review
Wicked Bite by Jeaniene Frost is book Two in the A Night Rebel Series. This continues the story of Veritas and Ian, so you really should read the previous book 'Shades of Wicked' first. This book picks up where we left off in the last one. Veritas had saved Ian from the demon, Dagon but now she is out to hunt Dagon down to keep Ian protected. Ian knows something is missing although he can't remember what/who but he can't rest until he finds it. Of course Ian ends back with Veritas where they ...more

I was sent this book to review for a website. I'm not the target audience, but as with the first book, I really enjoyed this.

Veritas is a fun, strong, smart lead and her husband Ian is equally entertaining. The book does take more than a few pages to catch readers up on what happened in the previous book and then it's off to the races in a chase to find or to flee from Dagon and his minions.

The supernatural action is good, though it did seem that the protagonists were able to pull some new,

perfect next step in the progression of this story - I simply adore Ian and would read about him reading the phone book! Veritas is a fabulous heroine. Her back story/history is fascinating and I want more! She is the perfect counter to Ian. The pacing is edge of your seat and of course, the chemistry is excellent. This might be my favorite spin off of this series.

Dammit, that was good! Edge of my seat good. Nail-biting good. Reading in the dark with a Dollar Tree flashlight, so I don't wake up the baby good.
The underlying messages of self-worth, acceptance, and race were prevalent in this one.

"If they were here, their species and others wanted them dead for reasons that practically amounted to "You're different, so you scare me." Funny how those same people rarely paused to consider how terrifying they were, handing down death
