    4.5 Stars I am so thrilled that I finally got this book I ve had my eye on it for a while, but I finally grabbed it when I saw had it listed for 6 Yeah for great prices After reading and enjoying this book I know I won t quibble about paying the ridiculous Trade prices for the future releases I enjoyed it that much I really liked the unique take on Melina s role in the supernatural world As she said, she s a small cog in a big wheel Due to a twist of fate she s stuck as a Messenger Not all of th [...]

    Nice to have a Jewish leading lady Too bad it s her only distinguishing feature She s no different than 100 other UF, or even chick lit, gals And she s in way over her head Her sources are her Grandma and Aunt, who coincidentally had important info for her, and the Internet Seriously, her source for defeating the very scary and gross Chinese vampires zombies is a website Because stuff on the Internet is always correct And not only is she fighting scary vampires, but also the much scary to me hu [...]

    Ever wonder how all those kick ass heroines in popular Urban Fantasy got their start How they actually became kick ass You don t usually see the mighty heroine s humble beginnings by the time they re heroines, they re usually already there Well, Melina Markowitz may just be the answer to those idle wonderings An unexpected drowning and resuscitation at the age of three marked Melina as a member of the arcane and called her into service as a Messengerrt of like the supernatural s answer to FedEx [...]

    Melina Markowitz is a very busy woman Not only is she working two jobs to make ends meets, but has another secret one where she doesn t get paid at all Melina is known in the supernatural world as a messenger Those creatures of myth and legend, such as vampires, werewolves and even imps do exist because they expect Melina to deliver packages and other messages to one another Melina has no choice because if she ignores this call horrible things will happen to her and she ll get very sick If only [...]

    To view review on my blog lll808 2010 05 reFirst off, this cover rocks and definitely caught my eye finger snap like that Don t Kill The Messenger is a great title and descriptive.Melina Markowitz is just that, a Messenger.She skirts the lines between Mundanes Danes humans and Arcanes Canes those whoare among the things of myth and camp fire stories.She is a Messenger or in Melina s words a glorified gopher There is no payment to reward the burden but all the risk involved She is the go to gal w [...]

    SPOILER ALERT I m truly shocked to see this book getting such great reviews on.I decided to pick up this book because I d read another book by Rendahl that I enjoyed and because I enjoy a good vampire zombie werewolf book as much as the next person I have never read a paranormal romance before unless you count the Sookie Stackhouse books, which I guess kind of are Perhaps this is why I don t get the love for this book.I found the juvenile voice of the lead character very irritating Perhaps a in [...]

    Melina Markowitz is a messenger She didn t plan on being a messenger and she isn t always happy to make her deliveries Neverthless, she does her job when she is forced to Who she is a messenger to is interesting than the fact that she is a messenger She delivers packages, notes and other important items to members of the arcane which includes vampires, werewolves and other creatures Melina screws up one of her deliveries It s not really her fault but the consequences are hers to bare regardless [...]

    I gave this one 3.5 stars.Okay, so I will give a brief synopsis since it seems that many haven t read this one yet The main character is named Melina, and she is what s known as a Messenger She is the go between for different species, so for example, a vampire needs something delivered to a werewolf, he will request for Melina to do it This is mainly to prevent fights between species that don t like each other.While Melina is on her way to deliver a pkg from one vamp to another vamp, she is ambu [...]

    2.5 stars.Meh I m really not sure I can be bothered to write a proper review about this It had some good ideas and it wasn t awful, in fact it was purely mediocre and perhaps that s most of the problem I have with it There s some good ideas floating around, but there s also a lot of time spent with the character not doing much other than driving around bitching about how she doesn t want to be a Messenger and No One Asked Her Of course in real life I d have some sympathy for her, but in a book I [...]

    First off, I have to thank my lovely friend Patricia Rickrode for gifting me with this book She had a great idea to give books away to everyone who commented on her blog which I obviously did , reinforcing the importance of readers leaving reviews I thought that was a creative way to share books while selflessly garnering reviews for other authors Genius If you don t follow her blog, you should.SoDon t Kill the Messenger is the first book in the Messenger series, and for me, it was a mixed bag.W [...]

    I bought this book while trying to find some new reads in the urban fantasy paranormal genre and was keen to see what it brought to the table I mean, it mentioned Chinese vampires, which is something you most certainly don t see in mainstream Western fiction Plus, the concept of a Messenger was also interesting and I was curious to see where they went with it Unfortunately, the story really didn t go anywhere Sure, it was nice seeing a different kind of vampire, but the idea of the Messenger jus [...]

  13. Katie

    Well, I really enjoyed it but it didn t start out that way Rendahl has the main character use a lot of colloquial dialogue with the reader and it sometimes becomes repetitive Also, I found a lot of the in between thoughts feelings between the action and dialogue to be rather boring and I skimmed a lot of it, not even on purpose, because it didn t catch my attention I really like the story, it s a unique take on the magical supernatural world, but I wanted the main character to have powers but s [...]

    Manchmal hat man eindeutig unentdeckte Sch tze auf dem SuB liegen So eine Perle ist Don t kill the messenger auf jeden Fall Ich war mehr als begeistert von diesem Auftakt in eine neue Urban Fantasy Reihe, der ber 3 Jahre auf meinem Stapel ungelesener B cher auf seinen Einsatz warten musste.WorldbuildingEileen Rendahl hat hier einen interessanten neuen Aspekt in einen eigentlich eher typischen Weltenentwurf eingebracht In Melinas Welt leben bernat rliche Kreaturen wie Werw lfe, Vampire, Feen, G t [...]

    I m actually a little disappointed in this book After reading reviews here, I added it to my TBR list thinking it would the start of a new series to follow It had potential, but for me, it fell flat and I m totally on the fence as to whether I ll try the next one in the series.So what didn t I like Where do I start The lame plot, the pathetic half hearted attempt to create a love triangle at the last minute, the immature, kinda whiny lead character I have a hard time thinking of her as a heroine [...]

  16. Tez

    I m used to publishers mismarketing paranormal romance as urban fantasy, but it s nonetheless annoying every time it happens Don t Kill the Messenger is the rare opposite urban fantasy mismarketed as paranormal romance An author blurb emblazoned on the cover speaks of an edgy, kick ass protagonist , as if they ve never come across one before Maybe not in paranormal romance, but I assure you that in urban fantasy they re a dime a freaking dozen.Originally I d passed over this book because the ser [...]

    Melina acts as a go between for the supernatural around Sacramento Not by her choice If an imp or sylph or whatnot drops off a package and orders its delivery, she must do it So when she s getting off her clerking night shift at the hospital and the hot, hunky vampire doc from the ER give her a parcel for delivery, she gripes but does what she needs to do She doesn t expect to have ninjas drop out of a tree and give her the beat down to get the item Something is up Any supernatural creature know [...]

  18. Jana Brown

    I surprised myself with this one It s likely between a 3 and a 4 for me as a fun popcorn read The concept behind this book is that our heroine Melina drown as a small child, but was brought back However, that few minutes left her a bit on the odd side and chosen as a messenger to the supernatural world This is just as glamorous as it sounds as she spends her life trying to juggle a somewhat normal life and job with delivering packages for whatever supernatural beastie requests it of her She s tr [...]

  19. Melinda

    This book is not what I expected I expected of a romance novel, instead I got an action adventure with lots of paranormal.The main character is a little clueless, but I think it works well for her and for the story She didn t want to acknowledge the others and live a normal life so I think the clueless part was her character.I love how all her friends come together at the end, both the danes and the canes The only concern is Norah Is she really going to be ok after learning about the canes I m [...]

    I liked this book than my 3 star rating may indicate, but it wasn t quite a 4 star to me Full review written for Open Book Society to come.

  21. Kay

    I thought this book was a lot better the first time I read it I guess The writing was not for me I don t like how it was written overall, honestly There were parts of the book that were clearly the author stating her own opinion and putting it into the voice of her character when it was honestly irrelevant Melina was so obviously clueless it was painful She says no man could ever be into her, while a super hot vampire is totally into her and he makes sure she knows it The amount of times she did [...]

  22. Tesha L.McKinney

    I really enjoyed this book The characters were engaging and held my interest throughout the book I am curious ad to why her new love interest always smelled like baked goods to her I was expecting to find out that he was some type of paranormal being It was good to finally read a book with a setting in the Bay Area I don t think I have ever read a book with the characters living in Sacramento It had always been the usual places like Los Angeles or New York It is refreshing reading novels where t [...]

  23. Debbie

    I wasn t sure if I was going to like this one or not, but I have to say I loved it The author s voice pulled me right in and had me really liking Melina by page 2 Her sarcasm and wit had me laughing out loud in so many places I actually started getting shushed by my family.The characters were definitely different quite refreshing after reading about the same old vampires in every novel out there lately I will definitely read book 2 in this series when it comes out I m glad the story is continuin [...]

  24. Tammy Kesteloot

    DNF 28% For now I am DNF ing this book I sorta kinda like it but the problem is, it isn t holding my interest I have tried to keep reading this one 3 times now and it just isn t working, I m not feeling it so for now I am going to dnf it But I might come back to this book at a later time and give it another try.

  26. Vivian ♪(┌・。・)┌

    YES YES YES After being on my currently reading shelf for so long, I finally found the patience and motivation TO FINISH THIS THE FUCK OFF.Okay So the problem with Don t Kill The Messenger was that it wasn t original Not really I mean the whole messenger concept was quite unique and I was very intrigued when I first saw it, but the concept isn t really explored and developed at all.So, in the end, it s really like all of those Paranormal Romances out there, except not as good I mean, I m totally [...]

  27. Carmel (Rabid Reads)

    Reviewed by Rabid ReadsThe concept behind Don t Kill The Messenger is an interesting one but unfortunately for Eileen Rendahl, the delivery was another story entirely This book is categorized as urban fantasy but the heroine comes across as immature and acts like a teenager instead of someone who s in her mid twenties The dialogue is also repetitive and inconsistent For me, this novel fell short of the mark because its few redeeming qualities are overshadowed by Melina s ditzyness Perhaps I woul [...]

    This is the first book in the Messenger series.While this is the first book in the series, I actually read the third book first Since I liked the third book, I wanted to go back and read the earlier books to get any background that I had missed I especially wanted the whole messenger thing explained a little better So here is my warning to everyone, Thw whole messenger thing is not really explained It does say how Melina became a messenger, but where her powers come from or even exactly what the [...]

  29. Barbara ★

    As a paranormal messenger Melina Markowitz doesn t get paid Nope it s some kind of destiny thing dying at age three and being resuscitated will do that to a gal so she works two dead end jobs to make ends meet mainly as a file clerk in the hospital but also as a karate instructor at her friends dojo I really liked the idea of a messenger which seems new and different in the genre but other than the first couple of paragraphs, this theme isn t explored I m hoping in subsequent books it might be d [...]
