Book Review: All Change from the Bite Me series by India Taylor


Buy “All Change: Bite Me series book 1”

India Taylor’s book, Bite Me: All Change, part of a series, is a very fun read. I sometimes enjoy books about werewolves and vampires, but this book went far beyond others I have read. All Change was so much more than the typical books about trying to find blood and trying to hide your character from others. You might say after reading this, that “Werewolves are people too!” because they have real problems, and real friends. I enjoyed seeing how the group befriended each other despite their differences and worked together for a common goal.

India Taylor’s characters are well developed and likeable. Most werewolf and vampire stories have their own system of rules that these mythical creatures live by, and All Change is no exception. There are a few new rules that I haven’t come across before, and since the creatures aren’t real, anything could be true in a book. This book kept my interest and I really appreciated the logical story development.
