Review--Bitten in Two by Jennifer Rardin


Just as Vayl and I arrive in Morocco to secure an ancient artifact, he wakes up calling me by another woman's name. And it's not even a good one. But since any form of argument transforms him into an unholy terror, I'm forced to play along until the gang and I can figure out what kind of power has so vastly altered his perceptions.

So it's time for me to do what any well-trained assassin in my position might do. I attack.

Jaz and the gang are back! It's been awhile since I last read Bite Marks, so it took some time for me to get back into the swing of things in Jennifer Rardin's Bitten in Two.

The tension was just great! Seriously! As much as I sometimes hate it, I love it because I hate it. Vayl is living in the past, the year 1777 and he thinks Jaz is one of his old servants and Cole is her husband. It was quite comical, but frustrating as well, since Jaz was frustrated.

Jaz more than ever wants to find out who cursed him and more importantly how she can reverse the curse to get her Vayl back. The one who loves and remembers her. And that's hard to do when she doesn't have much of a clue as to where to start and to top it off she does have another mission she needs to be working on.

I truly missed hanging out with Jaz. Her and her friends/crew are just too funny. Bergman has a slightly stronger role this time and made me laugh more than once with his current situation. It seems the owner of their temporary "headquarters" has developed a crush on him and Bergman is Bergman. Too smart for his own good.

Cole is once again his charming and snarky self. There are times I truly forget how old he is supposed to be by the way he acts. Outrageous and pretty damn funny too! Tensions run high between him and the demon chick that they made a deal with last time around--another thing I forgot with the passage of time.

But the book was just filled with tension and wondering if the old and normal Vayl will ever return. Plus to make matters worse or more entertaining, Jaz has developed a stalker who is literally always around hiding in the shadows with his young friend/translator. Yup, he doesn't even speak English. There were several encounters with this guy and all were pretty entertaining, for Jaz was Jaz and not Lucille when dealing with him!

The story itself was Jaz and crew trying to find an important artifact that was somewhat demon related and would help Jaz out with her little problem currently residing in the recesses of her mind.

The book ended well, but not all the problems were resolved. More problems arose, including betrayals and other secrets being revealed. Plus a new character from Jaz's past comes back to help, despite having threatened Jaz that if she ever contacted him again, after their first and last mission, he would likely kill/punish her.

Can't wait to see where the last and final book in the Jaz Parks series takes us. The Deadliest Bite will conclude the series and from what I recalled hearing early this was where Jennifer planned to end the series. I will truly miss Jaz and her crew, but can't wait to see how the series ends like I do with all my fave series.

Overall I give the book 4/5 stars!

This is a remarkable series to read if you haven't read it yet. And plus it's the cheapest way to travel as Jaz goes somewhere new in just about all the books!


  1. I LOVE this series!!! Im waiting for my copy!!

    so sad =/

  2. I really need to try to get back into this series, especially now that we've lost Ms. Rardin, who was such a talented writer. Thanks for te great review! Vayl's confusion sounds hilarious.
