Once Bitten had a pretty lengthy and entertaining cast of characters. I kept getting the Clue vibe every time I met a new person. First we meet Angie, our main character, who seems to be an ordinary woman working in an ordinary job. She has a sharp mind but mostly keeps her thoughts to herself. Angie is employed at the ad agency and her boss is the demanding Lucy Weston. Lucy has been missing for a few days and everyone at the company is scrambling to pick up the slack and maybe advance their individual career status. Lucy's body is eventually discovered by Angie and a fellow co-worker Les Banks, at her upscale home. It is then discovered that Les was Lucy's secret lover and he becomes the primary suspect.
We also meet Kimberley Bennett, Angie's room mate and fellow ad assistant. She scoops Angie on several jobs using underhanded measures that nobody could prove, and appears to be the opposite of Angie in every way. Kimberley is a cool, but ruthless, beauty that comes from a very privileged background. Another co-worker is Steve, the all around good guy. Steve helps both Angie and Les at various points throughout the book.
When Angie is placed on the Macabre Factor account she meets the owners, Suleiman and Moravia. They invite her to House of Usher, a goth club, to learn more about their 'world'. It is there that she meets Eric Taylor. Eric is the vampire she eventually falls in love with. Eric is a lovely and seemingly old-fashioned guy, not forceful at all, and she enjoys the amount of attention he gives.
These are just a handful of the characters in Once Bitten. Who were some of your favorites, least favorites, and why? Was it confusing to have so many people to keep track of?
