Sick of hearing about vampires? So is Meena Harper.

But her bosses are making her write about them anyway, even though Meena doesn't believe in them.

Not that Meena isn't familiar with the supernatural. See, Meena Harper knows how you're going to die. (Not that you're going to believe her. No one ever does.)

But not even Meena's precognition can prepare her for what happens when she meets—then makes the mistake of falling in love with—Lucien Antonescu, a modern-day prince with a bit of a dark side. It's a dark side a lot of people, like an ancient society of vampire hunters, would prefer to see him dead for.

The problem is, Lucien's already dead. Maybe that's why he's the first guy Meena's ever met whom she could see herself having a future with. See, while Meena's always been able to see everyone else's future, she's never been able look into her own.

And while Lucien seems like everything Meena has ever dreamed of in a boyfriend, he might turn out to be more like a nightmare.

Now might be a good time for Meena to start learning to predict her own future. . . .

If she even has one.


My Thoughts:
[Highlight to view spoiler]
I've never read a Meg Cabot book, but I have a bout 20-something of them on my TBR list. I was excited when a random number generator picked this as my random book for the month of April. It started off strong and stayed that way pretty much the whole way through. Was it Twilightesque? It had its moments. All the vampires can read minds...except for the main vampire in the story can't read the female lead's mind. A lot of people say Southern Vampire Mystery is Twilight for adults, but I think this one is more so than SVM. SVM is like a whole other territory.

Meena Harper is the writer of a hit soap opera. She's single and living in NYC - except she has this horrible talent of seeing how people are going to die. It's hard to let people in and when she does, not everyone will stick around with such a freak.

Lucien Antonescu is the Prince of Darkness and is having a little trouble with some rogue vampires killing young foreign girls in NYC.

Meena and Lucien's paths cross - they are instantly intrigued with one another. Meena can't see how Lucien will die and Lucien can't read Meena's mind completely.

The ending of the book was probably my all-time favorite! Cannot get over how cool it is that a vampire turns into a [dragon].
