FANG ME is the third in the Val Shapiro series and the best
by far. Val is really in the thick of things now, what
with trying to figure out what happened to a valuable set
of books her father bequeathed her. She gave them to her
demon cousin for safe-keeping and they vanished the same
day. Everyone was counting on learning more about demons
from them, so Val feels doubly-guilty. And just when
things seem to be going swimmingly with Shade, she is
shocked to discover that her powers of superspeed and
strength will disappear with the loss of her virginityâ€”only
Lola will remain intact. As the mystery of who stole the
encyclopedias spirals in more deeply, a new "shady"
character emerges, the newly outed vampire movement grows,
and its leader has his sights set on Val and her powers.
The final climax of the series is big, shocking and

city. As usual, Val's vampire enemies (they still call her
The Slayer) want her dead. Even some of her fellow demons
may be less than trustworthy, since they'd like to grab the
legendary book of spells before she does. Val has a personal
claim to the Encyclopedia--her demon father left it to her
when he died--but someone stole it recently. And that can't
Battling vamps and dodging demons, Val struggles to unravel
the mystery and find the thief. At the same time, she's
fighting her attraction to sweet, sexy Shade--her favorite
shadow demon. Rumor has it that Val will lose her
part-demon, vampire-fighting powers if she gives herself to him.
With a crowd of vamps and demons out to trick her or kill
her, it's not a good time for her to risk her job as the
city's best vampire hunter by falling in love. The stakes
are high and aimed right at her heart. But Lola, Val's
hungry little lust demon, doesn't like being denied. Will
Lola finally get her way?
