Tantalize is your typical forbidden love stroy. Kieren, Quince's bestie, is a halfbreed werewolf, who obviously can't have a relationship with human Quincie. You would think that this novel would focus mainly on that relationship but it really focus's on Quincie's job at her uncles new restaurant and the new vamp chef, Brad.
The book was actually very good with an unexpected - well somewhat expected - twist at the end that'll make you go: no way! I really liked Quincie's character, and she most certainly developed throughout the story, well matured would be a better way to put it.
A couple of things i didn't like was the fact that the writing wasn't very clear when it came to telling you if the "world" knew about supernatural creatures, or if only a select few did. Also, there were apparently more than one "were-animal" like a were-possum, and a "were-armadillo", which i thought was a little odd. And no there really wasn't an explanation to that.
Oh did i mention it's sort of a murder mystery too?
The ending was bittersweet, if not a bit rushed, and there most definitely will not be a sequel - that i know of anyways. A good novel for people who have nothing to read after twilight, check it out.
love, werewoles ,vampires ,and her....... ,all tie into one........,darkness takes its corse in the life of Quincie Morris great book for ages 14 and up also if your interested in vampires and werewolves try Twilight have fun!!!!!
Overall I liked Tantalize. It had romance with a hint of, well more than a hint, of blood. It puts a new spin on the supernatural world of vampires and shifters. This is a book anyone who has lost a loved one, has trouble letting go of a crush, or just dealing with life can relate to. The only thing that could've made it better was an epilouge. Reading it was a wonderful way to spend a Saturday afternoon.
If you like vampire and warewolf novels then, this book is for you.
This story is about a 17 year old girl named Quincy and her hottie warewolf best friend/love interest, Kieren. After the death of her parents, the family restaurant is given to her but since she is underage, her uncle is the one controlling the financial matters.
They are planning a grand reopening with a new theme: Vampires. Just a month before the reopening,the head chef is murdered in the restaurant's kitchen. Now, Quincey has to hire a new chef and plan a menu. At the same time she has to watch out for her life which might be in danger. Can she reopen the restaurant in time? Will she be able to find the murderer before it's too late?
quince morris is torn between two first loves. her hybrid lover friend since forever and her "vamp" resturant friend since the first day of school. who will she choose?
with the new openning of Sanguini's: A Very Rare Resturant and its brand new vampire theme, the death of her dear friend and chef, Viaggo and the begining of school, quince has a whole lot more to handle than she really can.
this is a confusing book but after you've passed teh first 100pages, you kinda get the hang of it. it takes place in a fantasy world where werepeople humans and vampires are real and all living together. its very interesting. i would recommend it to anyone 13 and older and anyone who likes dark fantasy books.
