    1. 2.5 stars I really like it when humans turn into animals I don t know why But I do Maybe it s the whole intelligent mind inside dumb animal thing, maybe it s the freedom of moving around in slinky ways I downloaded the sample chapters of this book and was pretty excited by the beginning our heroine is being hunted by someone late at night, and she shifts into a small cat in order to evade her captors She then cleverly hides inside a shopping bag that is carried out of a woman s restroom Awesome [...]

    2. When it comes to vampire stories, I prefer the classics like Let the Right One In and Dracula Once Bitten is painstakingly obvious, full of tropes, predictable and unmemorable In all fairness though, the author has a real talent for crafting characters, and with a different plot I think her writing has a lot of great potential.

    3. 2 1 2 stars I came to read this after getting into Price s Grave Witch series which is quite good and does interesting things with Fae mythology and necromancy Once Bitten has an equally original fantasy world, but somehow it never came across as very believable The heroine, Kita Nekai, is a shifter on the run from some place called Firth We re never really told what Firth is Another world Dimension Who the heck knows A portal opens to it once a month Kita has run away from Firth and is being pu [...]

    7. This is definitely a 3.5 but I couldn t decide whether to round up or down It took me forever to finish this book A Kindle freebie, I couldn t figure out why I had a problem getting into it, but here s what I came up with 1 The heroine is a selfish, spoiled, childish, hothead whose problems are all her own fault, and she spends much of the time snapping at everyone else.2 She remains ignorant of the details of her own situation simply because she refuses in her anger to listen to the one person [...]

    8. For the life of me I couldn t understand what this book wanted to tell me It kept unrelenting pace with events that I didn t care much about The characters weren t properly intoduced in order for me to like them or at least understand them and have some sort of familiarity with them therefor I coudln t care less what happened to them Another thing irked me in this book was the 100 times repeated gestures, it seems the heroine Kita is a magnet for the touch EVERY guy wants to touch her somehow an [...]

    10. This book was freaking awesome I have now grown very fond of all books by Kalayna Price I wish there were so many to read sigh As there are currently only three, I ll be waiting on bended knee for the rest to be released.Til then, here is my review This particular novel is about a shifter turned vampire Kita coolest name by the way , had grown up as a calico cat shifter I was cracking up at that one, nothing like being a six pound kitty to really make you feel as uncomfortable as possible in a [...]

    11. About the time I find that the main male lead, who I think is a horrid asshole that should get his ass kicked repeatedly, is supposed to be the misunderstood love interest, I realize that I ve accidentally read a psuedo romanace novel Damn I kept reading and waiting the entire book for him to get his come uppance and instead of realizing what a vile son of a bitch he was and over coming his whole vampire allure mesmerizing thing, they start getting all fuzzy toward him, which is what I call stup [...]

    12. I got this book free off my Kindle and since I m broke I m trying to balance my reading of free classics with some fantasy, mystery, basically whatever they will let me download for free I was sceptical about the book in the beginning I didn t feel properly introduced to the characters or the fantasy land the author created I enjoy true fantasy, where lands are created and such, but felt like the author assumed I knew than I did The plot felt jumpy It also took me a long time to connect to any [...]

    13. This is definitely a winning book and hopefully a winning series I already have book twoI thoroughly enjoyed the world Kalayna has created I found her characters engaging and likeable Kita handles becoming a vamp and losing her ability to shift as well as one would expect her to She spends a lot of time being mad at Nathaniel for turning her but at this point in the series, you find yourself understanding why he did it I really like Bobby too he really cares about KitaI think he loves her but ca [...]

    14. I found this way too easy to walk away from in favor of doing other things until 3 4 of the way through the book when it finally stopped meandering and actually became absorbing reading for me.However that being said Kita spent way than 9 lives in Once Bitten so not sure how she will fare in next book Twice Dead but as have digitally on my kindle and a used trade paperback copy to find out will be doing so soon.

    16. DNFThe only thing that sucks than a book I can t finish is a book I can t finish from an author I like.I adore the Alex Craft series by Kalayna Price, so I was excited to see that she had backlist books I could dive into and roll around in Then I started reading Not only did I not connect to this book, I actively disliked it.The story follows a cat shifter, Kita, who is on the run from her people Female shifters aren t supposed to go into the human world, but she s been hiding out for the past [...]

    17. Once Bitten by kalayna price Kita Nekai, on the run and the smallest of her shifter clan a calico cat among lions and tigers is being hunted She was expected to accept her role as her father s successor whether or not her cat was up to the task of leading the clan She disagreed Now she s less than a step ahead of the hunters, bone tired, cold, and living hand to mouth in the city of Haven And that s the high point of her day She s also drugged, accidently turned into a vampire, and sentenced to [...]

    18. I received this book from Deb at Bell Bridge Books for review, it is Kalayna Price s first novel, Once Bitten and it was great I will admit to some confusion in the beginning though Kita is already on the run and it s a little disorienting because other than what we know from the BOC we don t really get why she s running Along the way we get pieces of her thoughts and know it has something to do with her clan and father We never actually see these people shifters for they live in Firth, this alt [...]

    19. Once Bitten is one of those books that I probably would have liked a lot if I had read it when it was first published or at least when I first purchased it Of course, that just means that I don t think it s held up over the years and wasn t that original to start with Kita is a shapeshifter who has left her home world to live among the humans, but she s being hunted Then she s attacked, left for dead, and turned into a vampire to save her life If that s not enough, now she s being held responsi [...]

    20. Once Bitten turns the shapeshifter genre into something brand new The origins of shapeshifters are explained in a way that is surprising, yet somehow logical The focus is on the spiritual, the soul, and gives the definition of shapeshifters being dual natured a slightly different meaning than is normally seen.There are many supernatural types featured in this book Shapeshifters of all flavors, demons, magic users, vampires are all strongly focused on with the possibility of others lurking in the [...]

    21. I had mixed feelings about this book before and after reading it.Before learning it was about a shape shifter cat, my first thought was cool I like cats My second thought was but how can a person turn into a cat, when a cat is so much smaller than a person But my third thought was how can a person turn into any animal if I can enjoy a book about werewolves, is this really that far fetched So I gave it a try.Here s what I liked about it without giving any spoilers, this book did add a new dimens [...]

    22. I enjoyed Grave Witch, so I picked this up to see what Kalayna Price s Haven series was like Once Bitten was OK not as good as Grave Witch, which had a likeable heroine with some cool powers and a cute dog In Once Bitten, Kita s behavior can be kind of repetitive and annoying, and the investigation into the rogue dragged lots of walking around and taking the subway and dodging hunters, while searching for clues on too long The vampire side of the plot line was much interesting to me than the F [...]

    23. My Rating 3.5 StarsIn most books with shifters, the beasts in question are usually large breed wolves, big cats, bears, etc Kalayna Price has created the unusuala small breed shifter Kita shifts into a calico cat, which she uses her advantage by posing as a family pet while on the run from hunters from her home dimension of Firth But the hunters are only the start of Kita s problems.There s plenty of action in Once Bitten and it s a great start to the Haven Series All the action takes place in t [...]

    24. Nice urban fantasy about a cat shifter who has run away from home Kita is having a really bad day She is attacked by a rogue shifter, turned into a vampire, sentenced to death by a demon judge, and has her sentence delayed to give her a little time to find the rogue shifter She has to dodge Hunters who target rogue shifters She has to get used to being a vampire And she has to become a detective when she is mostly used to being a house cat Lots of fun dialog and interesting situations in this st [...]

    25. I sort of liked this book but I did start to get a bit fed up with nearly all the characters Early on Kita obviously gets drugged at a rave she went to hide from the hunters Then she was attacked I know she was going through a lot of stuff at this point and straight after but at no time did she seem to wonder why she was drugged or who did it.If she had maybe it would have saved a lot of time later I will probably get the next one if the kindle price is reasonable to see how the writer is going [...]

    26. I have to say, I enjoyed this book It s not often I come across a newly turned vampire who tries to ignore her new dietary requirements It made for some really interesting reading and I do admit, I had a hard time putting this book down I haven t heard that there is a sequel planned yet, but I m really hoping there is I want to see what happens between Bobby, Kita and Nathanial.For my full review, click here.

    27. People have low standards if they think this is great fiction The main character acts like an immature little girl that was written by an immature little girl trying to be grown up The entire plot is one contrived, over the top thing after another and I don t think the writer really knew where she was going with the story so just kept trying to see how many different supernatural creatures she could throw into the plot I d rate this stale chocolate.

    29. I liked the book It s continues on to the next one so don t read it if you need closer in one book I liked the way the author wrote the book allowing the reader to experience the events as they happen to kitten I did not like they way it seemed to drag at the end.
