Publisher's Summary

Mortality Bites: Publisher's Pack 2 contains books 3 and 4 of the Mortality Bites series. 

Superhero Me! (book 3):

What’s the expression again? “With great power comes a great pain in my ass.” And in a world where just about everything but superheroes exists, the last thing I expected to see was one flying around the park behind my dorm. I mean, isn’t it enough that this GoneGod world is filled with ghosts and demons, angels and valkyries, pixies and dragons? Do we really need souped-up humans, too? Come on! 

But that’s just the thing: superheroes don’t exist. Or at least, they shouldn’t. So when all sorts of superheroes start popping up on campus, fighting amongst themselves with such ferocity that they’re threatening the city, I have to don my own mask and cowl to figure out what’s going on. I’m Katrina Darling, a 300-year-old ex-vampire who believes in ghosts, but not superheroes. 

Orphaned Follies (book 4):

Never meet your heroes. 

But that’s exactly what my fae roommate Deirdre wanted to do: meet her hero, the human Professor Oighrig End. Turns out the professor was speaking at some exclusive event, and me being a sucker, I went with her. It wasn’t like I had anything better to do. I was fighting with my boyfriend, I hated my life and I was so severely depressed that all I really wanted to do was curl up in the fetal position and cry. Getting out would be good for me. 

But then someone had to go murder the human professor. And because of a massive snowstorm, we were literally locked in a building with his killer. What did Sherlock Holmes always say when faced with a mystery? “The game’s afoot.” I don’t know about games. I do know that I really wish I had gone with my initial instincts and stayed in bed. I’m Katrina Darling, a 300-year-old ex-vampire who really wishes she’d read more Agatha Christie in her long, long life.

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

A totally new approach to paranormal!

I love paranormal books, and this didn't disappoint. The author had to really do some research to get the story right. It was entertaining and I never knew what to expect or what was coming next. I had to get all 6 books and listened to them in a week.

Kat continues her fight for Others

Book 3
Kat is still being the Cherub. She is trying to make amends for hundreds of years of death to humans. Kat and her team fights for the rights of the Others and educate Others on how to live within societal norms. She still has the quirky habit of speaking out loud. In those instances, she is being truthful because the lies tend to stay in her head.

In the GoneGod world were magic no longer exist, there’s now a plethora of superheroes on campus. It is up to Kat to determine how that happen and how to put things right again. What Other is burning time to enable humans to become superheroes? Everyone wants to be a hero, including Justin. Justin is becoming frustrated that he cannot go out with the team and fight. None of the heroes realize their actions have consequences. They do not realize there is a sinister element that is determined to steal their lives and their inability to defeat it. Unfortunately, when humans see and experience the destruction of the superheroes, they view them as Others.

On campus there is an election for Gradner Hall President. Kat decides to run when she discovers a candidate running on a platform of discrimination against Others. With a schedule that includes working, fighting for Others, going to classes, studying and spending time with Justin, will she have enough time to campaign?

For Kat to save the humans she must accept her vampirism. There are not as many or protracted fights with her team. Kat displays her exceptional fighting skills in the final battle.

Book 4
It’s Christmas time, a snowstorm closes campus and the few remaining students are stranded. Kat is not feeling the holiday cheer and her and Justin are having issues.

Kat, Deirdre and Others attend an event that is sponsored by the Seelie court. All the attendees are snowed in when the guest speaker is murdered. Deirdre is accused of the crime only because she is UnSeelie. Kat is enraged by the discrimination and accusations against her friend. She proceeds to solve the murder.

It becomes an Agatha Christie murder mystery. If you have read enough of her mysteries, you will at least guess who committed the murder but not the why.

Unfortunately, Kat does not display any of her fighting skills. I found that disappointing. She basically uses deductive reasoning to attempt to determine the killer. That becomes difficult when it is discovered the Others are keeping secrets. The insidious evil that crept into Justin in book 2 plays a major role in this story.

Kat struggles with living according to the human laws. She is faced with a situation where an Other has a legitimate gripe against another Other for actions before the GoneGod world.

I did not give this 5 stars because Kat’s character is become stale and predictable. Her actions are predicated upon trying to make up for hideous murders that she committed as a vampire.

Interesting twist on religions, gods & folk-lore

I liked the series because they're an easy story to listen to. I listen to & from work. The books are interesting, and the flow of the story is natural. (Including some of Cat's back stories.) I do recommend these books. Ramy's imagination is great, bringing together all the religions and folk-lore.

Candace Thaxton does a wonderful job narrating the books.

bleh

I felt like the female lead was honestly two weak for me. the girl is supposed to be younger yet it's an older woman narrating in an almost robotic fashion. the other frustrating thing was that the female character honestly just wasn't smart. *spoiler*she always thinks she's dreaming or imagining and then she has a zombie chasing her into a Subway but she chose to go into the subway that's when I had to quit listening and get my refund

a bit boring.

I can't seem to pay attention and have to keep rewinding this book. The first was was just ok and I hoped that this one would get better but it is just more of the same. It's not suspensful there is a bit of action but it doesn't really grip you. You don't really wonder who is doing what you just kind of feel feel like, yeah whatever... so I can't really reccomend this book.

Love this series, and the ideas behind it all

As mentioned in my first review, my me is Katrina, or kat as I'm known, (a more European than Scottish spelling of the name as my Scottish family has various influences) and I am originally from near Inverness in Scotland, so this was amazing to pick up and coincidentally find the character with the same name, and a place I know.
Great principles behind the story, and really fresh and interesting idea about all the gods disappearing.

I found it a little hard that the main character talks her thoughts by accident so often, but that is because frankly if I had been a vampire as I'd love to be, I am derpy enough that I would also be doing the same, so I relate on an uncomfortabley close level and actually feel the embarrassment with how well its written like that. I relate to Kat in a lot of ways, and enjoy the story too.
