Bitten and Smitten
If you’ve never before sunk your teeth into a vampire novel, here’s the place to start. And if you secretly enjoy stealing out at night to howl at the moon, you’ll find good company in these pages where werewolves run rampant too.
Prior to reading the first book in Leitich Smith’s trilogy, Tantalize (Candlewick, 2007), I’d never indulged in Gothic fantasy. Well, consider me bitten and smitten. Tantalize whet my appetite! Now I’m hungry for more. I know that as I write these very words, Leitich Smith is luring countless unsuspecting readers over to the dark and delicious side.
And in case you’re wondering, yes, this is the very same super productive and incredibly prolific Cynthia Leitich Smith of the award-winning children’s literature blog Cynsations.
