In the continuing sage of the Chicagoland Vampires series, Merit and Ethan are finally together. As in together, together. As in they are finally a steady, stable couple.
But before they can really settle down and enjoy their immortal lives together, there's another problem that heads their way.
Just as their House has separated from the vampire consortium, anti-vampire forces are building in Chicago. Riots have begun with little evidence as to why they started or how they are organized.
Now Merit and Ethan have to investigate the riots, get the consortium out of their business, help redeem their wayward witch friend, and try to celebrate Valentine's Day.
Final thoughts: I still love this series, but I'm not loving Merit so much in this one. She's suddenly, and constantly, unable to hold her own. Injury after injury. Lost battle after lost battle. She keeps stepping into bad situations and needing to be rescued. Her personality is still pretty strong, but she's not the bada$$ she has been in previous books. The ending was also a little off and strange. Not Neill's best work.
