Merit, Chicago’s newest vampire, is learning how to play well with others. Other supernaturals, that is. Shapeshifters from across the country are convening in the Windy City, and as a gesture of peace, Master Vampire Ethan Sullivan has offered their leader a very special bodyguard: Merit. Merit is supposed to protect the Alpha, Gabriel Keene—and to spy for the vamps while she’s at it. Oh, and luckily Ethan’s offering some steamy, one-on-one combat training sessions to help her prepare for the mission.
Merit must accept the assignment, even though she knows that she’ll probably regret it. And she’s not wrong. Someone is gunning for Gabriel Keene, and Merit soon finds herself in the line of fire. She’ll need all the help she can get to track down the would-be assassin, but everywhere she turns, there are rising tensions between supernaturals—not least between her and a certain green-eyed, centuries old master vampire.
Chloe Neill took it up a notch. Her Chicagoland Vampire series in phenomenal. I just love Merit and her world.
This book was action packed from the get go and that’s what I love about these books. They just don’t start.
Merit is still slowly adjusting to her world and it’s totally reasonable. She’s been completely thrust into this but that’s okay because she’s good at being a vampire.
Chloe gives us an insight in this book to the rest of the supernatural world that being the shifters and it as amazing. It’s raw and beautiful and I loved it.
What I don’t like anymore is Ethan Sullivan. How could he?
