I can't believe we're eight books in and the Chicagoland Vampires series has no end in sight. More amazingly, I'm still interested. Unlike many other paranormal series that seem to drag on relentlessly (here's looking at you House of Night) or meanders into the absurd (ahem, Sookie Stackhouse), this series only gets better with age. It's just like a fine wine.
Merit is such an engaging and believable heroine. She complains and has her bad days (or nights) just like anyone else, and when she kicks some major butt it makes me believe I could go fight crime too. Merit and Ethan are relaxing into a comfortable relationship yet we get an exciting progression with the storyline by bring the supporting cast we've only heard about to light. With exciting novellas and more books in the works, I'll be enjoying the Chicagoland Vampires for a long time to come.
Merit has been a vampire for only a short while, but she’s already seen a lifetime’s worth of trouble. She and her Master, centuries-old Ethan Sullivan, have risked their lives time and again to save the city they love. But not all of Chicago is loving them back.
Anti-vampire riots are erupting all over town, striking vampires where it hurts the most. A splinter group armed with Molotov cocktails and deep-seated hate is intent on clearing the fanged from the Windy City come hell or high water.
Merit and her allies rush to figure out who’s behind the attacks, who will be targeted next, and whether there’s any way to stop the wanton destruction. The battle for Chicago is just beginning, and Merit is running out of time.
