BLURB:Chicago is beset by supernatural tensions, and Merit-vampire protector of a safe haven called Cadogan house-is worried that the humans will be reaching for their pitchforks any minute. It doesn't help that yet another vampire rave is broken up by the mayor, and a new inhibition- reducing drug is circulating through the community.
It's up to Merit to put her house in order-literally. And if that takes getting a little blood on her hands, so be it.
REVIEW:I was very excited on the coming out of Hard Bitten, I was more excited on its return than the new Sookie Stackhouse book. Weird but true, I have chosen Merit instead of Eric this time. How could I not! The last book left me hanging; all those tension, frustration and action just couldn't sate my hunger for this series, even if a year has passed. Chicagoland Vampires is probably the only one left of the vampire lore books that I follow, that gives me that giddy feeling.
I love love love this book. I like how Merit has progressed from whiny vampire newbie to a serious house Sentinel. I was expecting the heavy drama and emotional petting that I would get from Merit and Ethan. I was not disappointed, I think I like the chase better, it leaves more excitement and anticipation.But nothing, could have ever prepared me for the ending. I was so distraught, as a person still in mourning of a friend, I understood it very well. When that WTF?! Did that just happened? scene happened, a slew of curses and a tear (seriously, I am a loser) was loose. Everything was doing so great. The Perp for the V drug was captured, the mastermind revealed. Ok well except for the demerits and file given to Merit and a receiver for the Cadogan house, but still that all seems to be a piece of cake compared to what had happened. For a brief second, I hated Chloe Neill, but now I am more excited on what's to come. I would love to think that they is a way to reverse all this, some form of magic or some reincarnation. A fan can only dream...
