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.
This series keeps bringing out all the stops. I never know what to expect. Well, I know there will be action and sexual tension. I mean Ethan and Merit need to just succumb to each other already dammit! There are definitely bigger plots at play, and I’m interested in seeing where they go. And that ending freaking killed me. I’m pretty sure I yelled at my mom because she didn’t tell me it would be that way. She just sat there, and smiled. Evil woman. Anyway, this is a great series, and listen!
