Times are hard for newly minted vampire Merit. Ever since shapeshifters announced their presence to the world, humans have been rallying against supernaturals—and they're camping outside of Cadogan House with protest signs that could turn to pitchforks at any moment. Inside its doors, things between Merit and her Master, green-eyed heartbreaker Ethan Sullivan, are tense. But then the mayor of Chicago calls Merit and Ethan to a clandestine meeting and tells them about a violent vamp attack that has left three women missing. His message is simple: get your House in order. Or else.
Merit needs to get to the bottom of this crime, but it doesn't help that she can't tell who's on her side. So she secretly calls in a favor from someone who's tall, dark, and part of an underground vamp group that may have some deep intel on the attack. Merit soon finds herself in the heady, dark heart of Chicago's supernatural society—a world full of vampires who seem to be ready to fulfill the protesting human's worst fears, and a place where she'll learn that you can't be a vampire without getting a little blood on your hands.
Well she has done it again!
Chloe Neill never seizes to amaze me when it comes to writing about Merit especially if I want to hate Chloe for the end of this book but I am hoping it will be for the better good because my heart is broken.
Just like before Merit has a mission, one that will put her in danger but what is she supposed to do when her house is in the firing liene?
This book however introduces the GP, the mighty powerful and incredibly useless GP. That being Darius West. I hate him, with a passion.
Just with previous books in this serious, this one is action packed from start to end and that is exactly how I like these Chicagoland Vampire books.
I was disappointed with the lack of certain characters, but I suppose I can forgive. For now, I am going to sit and cry in a corner unsil the next one.
