Highly recommend for readers who like short stories with suspense and interesting twists. With vampires, magic, werewolves, and ghosts, you don’t know what else will be thrown your way! Short, to the point, and with fated mates, you can not go wrong with this book. If only it was a little longer, but there’s plenty other stories by the author to keep us going!
This was a good paranormal story by an author that I never hesitate to pick up and read! The authors writing style never fails and I really enjoyed this book. The storyline for this one was interesting and I liked the faced paced storyline. I am looking forward to reading more by this author in the future!
This is the first book I have read by the talented Naomi Valkyrie. While I usually don’t read MM books the original story of the book made me give it a try. In the synopsis it is stated that one paranormal person is selected every ten years for a second chance at life. This cycle it is Quinnlan Trinity, a vampire that was murdered by his greedy sister a couple hundred years ago that is given his second chance.
Its officially Halloween when Quinnlan materializes naked in a rundown abandoned motel in the middle of nowhere. Three days in a small family town on the edge of a wolf pack, but a second chance is a second chance and Quinnlan is determined to give it his all to take advantage of the Gods kindness is choosing him. Watching the small town go about their Halloween activities Quinnlan is drawn to a mysterious figure that is walking alone in the dark away from the town. Following them for a short time he catches the scent of three wolves following as well, worried for the seemingly innocent person he continues to follow but from a distance to keep his scent from alerting the wolves. The end of the trail and Quinnlan might be a vampire, but he had never seen a ghost before one appeared before him yelling “HELP HIM” before vanishing again. The mysterious person is laying on the ground badly injured from the warning of the wolves when Quinnlan is faced with a choice. Allow this stranger to die, or give him his blood and save him but putting his fate in the strangers’ hands alone? Quinnlan might be a vampire, but he was always a lover and not a fighter, so he gives his one chance at a second life to save the man, later learning his name is Garrett. Many questions are running through Quinnlan’s mind, who is this man? What is his story? Why was he attacked by wolves? Will he accept my choice to save him, or will I return to purgatory?
For such a short read this book left me feeling satisfied, or better yet complete no cliffhangers or lingering what ifs. Not only was the story complete but the original plot has rules, including that the paranormal must tell their chosen mate the truth about the 3 days, everything so that in the end everyone gets to make their own informed decision on what will be the rest of their lives. One of my favorite things was the writer breaking the fourth wall, saying things we were thinking and telling the reader to use their imaginations which added an extra level of humor in some very intense situations. I look forward to reading more work from the amazing mind of Naomi Valkyrie. World building, storyline, writing style is all awe inspiring and enjoyable to read.
I loved this book so much! Naomi Valkyrie has created yet another mesmerizing story, and I just can’t get enough of it. This paranormal romance is filled with steamy vampires, magic, and plenty of action.
When the gods decide that Quinnlan deserves a second chance at love and life, it sounds like a miracle. Except that there are stipulations to this second chance. Quinnlan has three days to take a mate, or he goes back to purgatory forever. When Quinnlan finds Garrett bleeding out, he has a choice to save him or let him die. If he chooses Garrett and gets rejected, he risks heading back to the one place he doesn’t want to go. Can he really let him die, or will he take the chance for true love?
I am never disappointed by this author’s work, and I’m happy to say that I’m left craving more after reading The Final Bite. I loved every moment of it and highly recommend picking it up for a quick escape!

As someone who loves paranormal romance books I have to say that this is a must read. The storyline is very interesting and will keep you turning pages non stop. This book is an easy weekend read . Please do yourself a favor and read this book.
Extremely quick read but I really enjoyed it. Who doesn’t love vampires right? I liked the whole idea and the plot of this book and I understand it’s a short story but I wish it was longer because I need more lol. Vampires, werewolves, witches. I love it all. Good book for me!
I loved reading this paranormal story. This is an author that I have loved reading from the first book I picked up. I enjoy her writing skills and her attention to details that make her stories pop. This book is no different. This is a well written story where the characters bring the story to life. I found them to be connectable and had me coming back for more. I enjoyed how they pulled me into the story from the start. This is a fast paced story that I read in one sitting as it is that awesome. This is an entertaining and easy to read story that you don’t want to miss, a must read. A story where life mates and rejection are real things. I really enjoyed this story. I highly recommend this story and this author.
Review by @bjwagner
This book is a short story that I absolutely LOVED!! I REALLY, REALLY hope that the author decides to either continue it later on or add to it somehow. I would love to read more of this story!! So, every 10 years the Gods choose a paranormal being, who was unjustly killed, and they get a second chance at life. Nice right? Well, there are rules though!! First, you only have three days to find and choose a mate. Second, you can’t use any powers to influence said mate (love potions, mind control, etc etc). Third, you can only choose one person. If that person doesn’t work out for any reason, you go right back to purgatory. No Second Chances within this second chance. Your chance is just lost! And lastly, you have to tell your chosen mate about the challenge and said rules. Maybe not so easy after all! Quinlan is the chosen one this decade and boy oh boy does he have his work cut out for him! The gods have placed him in a hotel, in wolf territory, and in the middle of nowhere. These Gods must be out to get him! At least they gave him three changes of clothes and some cash, but funny thing is that they forgot underwear! What the heck?! Was that on purpose?? What are these silly Gods up to!!? Day one is passing quickly. By the time he catches some animals to eat (as he is a vampire) and looks around the SUPER small town he’s ready to get some sleep and work out a plan for this challenge. Scoping out the town at night might bring some more answers about the town and it’s residents. Will he be able to find a mate time? Three days in a small town with less people could be a big issue. Maybe he needs to take a day to travel somewhere else and up his chances? With not much money he won’t be able to get far. Should he let the alpha in the area know about his challenge? He doesn’t want to tick off the locals and have a wolf war on his hands too! Man oh man you are in for a treat with this one! Like I said it is a short story, but the author packs in some great stuff in those few pages. Give it a shot and see what Quinnlan ends up doing AND what he ends up dealing with.

If you are even the slightest bit into stories of the paranormal and steamy romance, I would take a shot on this book! (And even if you aren’t because you will be.) This author is excellent at telling stories that are intriguing and making paranormal characters not only relatable but compelling. I picked up this book and could not put it down. I love paranormal stories – not so much romance, but I loved this one. Quinnlan Trinity is a vampire who must choose a mate in three days or be sent back to and remain in the afterlife. This creative story will keep your eyes glued to the pages as they flip. It is easy to read and get lost in. 5 stars.
The Final Bite was a great little read. Short & Sweet but not too sweet.
I liked the mix of supernatural creatures. I always like to see how different authors have them interact with each other.
My only complaint is that it was a short story and I read it way too fast. It was so good I wanted more.
This is a great quick read. I have loved every boon this author has wrote and this is another one to add to that list. This author does an amazing job of making paranormal romances gripping and captivating. Even though this is a short read the story feels complete and not left unfinished or like its missing parts as some short stories do.
Quinnlan has been give the opportunity of a second chance at life. The catch is he has to find his mate within 3 days. The additional snag is there is no second guessing or changing his mind once he has made a choice.
When he first meets Garrett he is in a bad way after being beaten up by a wolf pack. Quinnlan has a choice does he save his life and in doing so accept him as a mate or does he let him die? What will be Garrett’s reaction when he find out the consequences of that choice and can Garrett really be Quinnlan’s mate or he is the wrong choice and Quinnlan’s signed himself back into purgatory?
I always know I’m going to get a good read from this author. I enjoy this author’s writing style. I have read other books by this author and it’s always an adventure. This story drew me in from the start and kept me captivated. This book is full of action, danger, second chances, romance, wolf shifters, vampires and more. This is an original read that went by too fast. This was a quick but entertaining story, I couldn’t put down. I highly recommend this book.
Quinnlan Trinity has been chosen from the paranormal world to get a second chance at life. Every ten years the gods choose someone who has been unjustly killed and give them a second chance. Except the gods seem a bit twisted as there are strings attached to this second chance. Not only does Quinnlan only have three days to find a mate but the gods have dropped him in an abandoned motel in the middle of nowhere. How is he supposed to find a mate in a place in the middle of nowhere?
Then Quinnlan finds a man bleeding out after an encounter with a group of wolf shifters. To save the man’s life he must feed him his own blood but in doing so this would bond him forever as his mate. He would also have to tell the man once he recovered that they are now bonded together forever, and Quinnlan has no idea what the man’s reaction will be. In either scenario he risks being doomed back to the afterlife.
Another intriguing and entertaining story by this author. Although the story was short, it packed a punch. The characters were interesting, and the scenes were well developed. I loved that the character of Quinnlan had so many facets to his personality. He was strong, courageous, kind, and witty. The added bits of humor throughout added a nice element to the other serious aspects of the storyline. A great read!
What a whirlwind of a short story! I didn’t expect it to flow so well, but it did. The author gave some much needed details and did a good job of world building. I found myself rooting for Quinnlan to succeed. Definitely recommend this quick read.
The Final Bite by Naomi Valkyrie. I love this author so it was no shock that I loved this book. Its a quick read that is a paranormal romance. Its the story of Quinnlan Trinity who has been chosen to be given a second chance at life. When you are killed unjustly the gods and goddesses pick one person to have a second chance and this time they have chosen Quinnlan. The catch is he has to find a mate in 3 days or he will be sent back to purgatory forever. When he finds someone in trouble he uses his last chance to try and save someone. Risking his last chance at life will this person be worth it and will he be able to have a relationship with them? This is such a fun paranormal, romance that will keep you on the edge of your seat!
Quinnlann Trinity, a vampire who was unjustly killed is brought back to life and given a second chance at life from the gods. Every ten years, a being is chosen to undergo this chance for a new life however, Quinnlan must find a mate in three days, and it doesn’t help that he has been dropped off in the middle of nowhere. Dumped in an abandoned motel far from anything remotely resembling civilization, how the heck is he to find a mate? Quinnlan only has two days left when he finds a guy bleeding because of a pack of wolf shifters, another paranormal set of beings. Does Quinnlan save him by giving him his blood and choosing him as a mate or does he leave him to die? By giving him the blood also means that Quinnlan has chosen him as a mate, but will he be accepted by this man or rejected? You must read the book to find out! It’s a great short story that was easy to read as the story progressed rapidly and naturally. The characters are relatable and easy to empathize with. Pick it up and go for a spin with the sexy Quinnlan and his mate!
Paranormals who were killed unjustly may very well get another chance at life… if they are chosen by the gods. Once every ten years this happens and this time it’s Quinns turn. Except there us a catch, you must find, choose a mate within 72 hours or you go back to purgatory… if they don’t reciprocate your choice you also go back to purgatory…forever.
Quinn wakes stark naked in the middle of nowhere in an abandoned motel with 3 days worth of clothes (no undies! Thanks gods!) A small pile of cash and 3 days to figure it all out. As a Vampire he doesn’t much tolerate the sun and he’s not allowed to manipulate his chosen.
I don’t want to ruin surprises but this story line is original, creative, fun, full of secrets and unraveling Mysteries and snarky attitude.
I highly reccomend this book a quick read that will keep you entertained to the last page!
I was so excited to get my hands on another book by this author. Everything she does is so well written and I just can’t put it down. This book is no exception and was just as good as I now expect. This is an incredible MM fantasy story with some of the best characters I have read about this year. I connected instantly with Garrett and Quinnlan. I loved their chemistry and wanted to read more about them.
I loved the idea behind this book as well. It was a fresh and unique take on finding a mate, which is a trope that can be fairly overdone. This author has quickly and effortlessly become one of my favourites and I look forward to every book she writes.
The Final Bite was a short and easy read with an interesting concept. Quinnlan is given a second chance at “life” with a tough mission. Find his true mate in less than 3 days (in a small town in the middle of nowhere) and if they chose him in return, he can live again. The story progresses fairly quickly as you follow Quinnlan on his “impossible” journey. The story is an MM paranormal romance with a HEA. I wanted to know more about Quinnlan’s back story and his sister’s betrayal. I want to know what happened to Garret’s father when he was taken. I hope the author writes stories about the other chosen second chances too.
After being killed by his greedy sister, Quinnlan is chosen to get a second chance at life. The catch? He must find a mate within three days, using no magical abilities. Did I forget to mention that Quinnlan is a vampire? The Gods dump him in an area with very little population. His second chance at life seems to be slipping out of his grasp, when on the second day, he sees a stranger in danger and chooses to save him. Mystery surrounds this intriguing stranger. What would become of this stranger and Quinlann? Can he help the stranger solve the mysteries? Find out in The Final Bite.
The Final Bite is full of relatable characters, paranormal beings, surprise, and quick comedic relief. It was fast-paced, and events unfolded quickly, to the point where it felt rushed. There were many opportunities for the story to be elaborated on or unfold slower. It is good for a short story, but I was expecting more out of it. It left me with questions that could have been answered with some elaboration.
Overall, The Final Bite is a great, quick read. It is full of mystery, suspense, and romance. If you are looking for a short story full of vampires, witches, and wolf shifters, do not hesitate to pick up The Final Bite.

I did enjoy this book, I found the story between the two main characters Quinnlan and Garrett was really sweet and I enjoyed their relationship development, especially how things ended and the family vibe that came along with it. I found that with many story stories it is hard to embellish on the background and build the characters to pull you in, and I would of really liked the story to be longer and more in depth.<br />I would read more by this author.<br />

The Final Bite by Naomi Valkyrie
Every ten years the gods give a chance at a second life to those in paranormal purgatory. This time is Quinnlan’s chance. The only catch, you have to choose a mate and you only have three days to do it. If you are unsuccessful, you’re back in purgatory. I think this is an original storyline. The author definitely has a vivid imagination. It’s a wonderful paranormal romance. It involves vampires and wolf shifters. Being a short novel, the story felt rushed. I enjoyed the book but wished it would have been longer to be able to connect with the characters more.
Every ten years, the gods and goddesses choose one soul who has been unjustly killed a second chance at life, but as with all gods and goddesses, there are a few rules which have to be followed and for Quinnlan Trinity, his time has come. So he is given three days to find a mate, or it is back to purgatory for eternity, so he is given three days worth of clothes, minus underwear and dropped into an almost abandoned motel in the middle of nowhere, a very daunting task.
As the first day passes without success, Quinnlan heads out the next evening and finds someone who looks out of place, but when he starts to follow them, he senses some wolf shifters are following them too, so he keeps his distance to find out what is going on. It is only when he finds that person beaten bloody and near death in another abandoned place, that he has a decision to make, he could save this persons life, but that would mean choosing them as his mate and risking it all, or leave them to die? This paranormal story is full of decisions, revelations and mystery as one man risks it all on an uncertain future in this tale which keeps you on the ends of your seat and wanting to know what happens next.

The Final Bite is a cute story with an interesting plot. I liked that Quinnlan is not your stereotypical vampire. I also really enjoyed the way the story was told, as if Quinnlan was telling us the story and it was amusing when he talked directly to the reader. The plot was not complex, and things were resolved easily, but that did not take away from my enjoyment of the story.
I’m always on the lookout for books by Ms. Valkyrie. The author has original characters in her books and I’m always surprised by how relatable they are. This paranormal romance is a short story but fun to read and easily read in a day. I really enjoyed the premise that every ten years the gods let one person who was wrongfully killed back to the real world to find a mate within 3 days. What a challenge when Quinnlan Comes back to life in a small town.
I will always recommend Ms. Valkyrie’s books to fans of paranormal stories. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
This was a quick and adorable story about second chances, full of action, and romance. Quinnlan has been chosen for a second chance at life, but with just 3 days, in a small town, his options are limited, and the opportunity for happily ever after is slim. Despite the shortness of the tale, the pacing was well set and the action well written. The heat between Quinnlan and Garrett is smoldering right from the start and just continues to get hotter. If you love paranormal stories with fast action and romance, this is a great story for you!
Every 10 years, the gods choose a being in purgatory to have a second chance, with stipulations of course. You have 3 days to find your mate. Quinnlan is the chosen one this time. He is dropped off in an abandoned motel in a small town with very little hopes to succeed his mission.
Quinnlan scopes out the town at night to find some potential mates when he spots a guy leaving town with wolf shifters trailing him. He decides to follow further to investigate and finds the guy beaten on the ground. He has a choice, continue his mission or save this random guy.
I absolutely love this author. Everything they write is so unique and different making it right up my alley. The author also has a lot of LGBTQ friendly stories, including this one which is an added bonus. This story was a little bit different from their others as they broke the 4th wall a few times which was amusing on its own. I give this book 5/5! Can’t wait for the next story!
5 Stars!!! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Hands down one of my favorite authors that brings me another 5 star fabulous story. I loved every bit of this MM Paranormal Romance that had vampires, werewolves, magic and sizzle.
What does truly happen when you only have 3 days to find a mate or head straight back to purgatory? Quinnlan finds out as he is chosen by the Gods to find a mate….and Quinnlan find that mate in Garrett. The hardest part is Garrett accepting the mating fate….as Quinnlan protects what is his and to keep Garrett safe as his mate, will Garrett be in the reciprocating end? Definitely read and find out?
This book is phenomenal…the writing, storytelling and the creativity that Naomi has in each of her books including this one, is fantastic. This story flowed so easily and it was so enjoyable. I love every bit of this book and I highly recommend this read.
