The third book in the Chicagoland Vampire Series finds Merit finally reconciling her vampire self with her former human self and her personal life with her professional one.
Of course, that kind of thing is never easy and having to do it while shape-shifters gather in Chicago for a huge meeting makes it all the more difficult.
Cadogan House, of which Merit is the Sentinel, has been asked to help out with the event and keep order if things get hairy... literally. It's the first time vamps have been involved in shifter politics and many of the shifters are not as welcoming as Merit would like.
Compound that with a dalliance with the Master of the House and a visit from that same Master's old flame, and things are just "peachy" for Merit, thank you very much.
What else can go wrong?
Oh... yeah... The invitation for Merit to the super-secret Red Guard that wants her to join them. They're kind of like the Internal Affairs department of the vamp world and joining them would mean turning against her House and her oh-so-sexy Master if things get ugly.
Should be a cinch!
Final thoughts: Ok. I've become an addict. And waiting until May 2011 for the 4th book may very well drive me insane. At least I've got the first book in her new series to keep me company while I wait. As a happy bonus, this was the first book I read on my new Kindle and, except for the fact that bouncing back and forth to read the best parts is much more complicated, I'm liking it.
