Publisher's Summary

Mortality Bites: Publisher's Pack contains Books 1 and 2 of the Mortality Bites series.

Mortality Bites, Book 1:

Mythical creatures are real, and the world is just finding out. Discovering that your neighbor was once an evil, blood-sucking fiend tends to bring property values down.

Katrina Darling’s only real friend has been murdered. And not just murdered - ritually sacrificed by a serial killer. Kat is sure more death will follow. She should know...she used to be the monster plunging the blade in. Trouble is, after 300 years of being a vampire, Kat has forgotten what it means to be human. One thing she does remember is that friends matter. Now she's determined to find whoever - or whatever - killed her friend before more victims surface. But just as the hunt begins, a mysterious young man discovers exactly what she was. Kat has a decision to make: run and keep her monstrous past hidden, or avenge her friend and save the city from a merciless serial killer.

Family Matters, Book 2:

Family matters...but so does breathing.

All I want is to be a normal college student, doing normal human stuff...you know - date the resident hunk, study, date some more. But when you’re once undead mother pops in for a surprise visit, well, that's anything but normal. I think it’s best to make good ol' mom's visit as short as possible. But when a deranged stalker from our past, hell-bent on making my mother suffer, interrupts our little dysfunctional family reunion, I’m forced into a perilous fight that could very well get me, my boyfriend, and everyone I know killed. I’m Katrina Darling, a 300-year-old ex-vampire who apparently still has mommy issues.

If you like the Dresden Files, Mercy Thompson, or Buffy the Vampire Slayer, then you’ll be helplessly addicted to the Mortality Bites series!

Ugh

I tried to like it but honestly I was bored after first chapter there just wasn’t anything holding my interest in the book the heroine is mediocre vampire at best who supposedly lost her vampirism and became human after the gods left with Their magic there was some scenes that were supposed to be funny but just fell flat couldn’t continue as much as I wanted to at least it is free but I have to admit the free plus catalog don’t have good books

This book is a twist.

Hi Everyone,
This book is a twist on mortality. A person who has been recently turned, and fighting on her mortality. Everyone is trying to figure out what life is all about not even monsters are immune to social endeavors. We all need to figure out who we are.

Teenage beep bop

If you are going to write a character as a 300 year old vampire, let’s not make that same character with a mindset of a 13 year old. How do you live for 300 years and want to go to college? This is some BS twilight wannabe book. Authors - most people don’t want to read a reimagined book of twilight. Please be original.

A hit and a miss

Let me start by saying I loved book one. It was a refreshing plot and very intriguing. I liked all of the unique characters and their quirks. Book two was a waste of time. There was nothing good about it to recommend . The main character basically whined and rehashed the same lines over and over.
Book 1, I would give 4 stars on the story.
Book2, 2 stars if I was feeling generous.

Pleasant Surprise

This book was a pleasant surprise because the free books can be subpar. Nice world building, snarky (but not too) humor and great storyline. And the narration! Candace Thaxton is a gem! I'll need to search for other titles she has narrated because actors of her caliber usually pick great books to narrate; that's worked for me in the past. Highly recommended!

OUTSTANDING STORY WORK

I'd absolutely love to see this as a series, having said that the story itself is so unique that I am completely amazed that the author has a brain that can bring us into this world and the detail is incredible! I'm actually speechless...... and completely engrossed in this incredible world!

I love this! I associated very well with Kat!

Funny enough my name is Katrina, I'm from North Scotland, and know inverness well, it is not too far from where I was brought up, and I have been there often so when I started listening i did the listening equivalent of a double take. Frankly if I could I'd be a vampire so this was totally up my street and funny enough also close to home. Clearly meant to be.

I really enjoyed the story too, and it is an incredibly interesting idea that it is built around with the gods also, really impressed by the characters, various different beliefs, races and characters, and the lore behind it is amazing, the depth of imagination and thought put into it all is incredible and I often find myself mulling over some of the fantastic beings mentioned. Excited for the next one! And will be looking into this author to find out more!

excellent young adult fantasy

was unsure about this series but thought I'd give it a try, during the first chapter I considered stopping and finding something else.
so glad I kept going because after chapter two I was fully immersed in this world and invested in the main character an ex vampire names kat.

a very enjoyable book and I recommend getting it.
I'm now off to buy the next two books in the series.

Brilliant, original and engaging

The story was engaging the whole way through. the characters gelled well together and the development worked well with the story.
I would have liked to see a little more development in the relationships between Katrina and her friends, but she had a lot going on in her life - just trying to be human.
The narration was on point with a great range of accents and range. Candace is very talented and added to the story.
I cannot wait to get into the next couple of books!

Great Story

I loved the story, despite the voice of Candace Thaxton. For some reason her voice & accent grated on my nerves. By the end of book 2 I was used to it, sort of.
But the story was fantastic and a new concept I haven’t read before. I’m looking forward to book 3!
