Review: Drink Deep by Chloe Neill

Published 31/01/2012 by supernaturalreadingaddict

Title:               Drink Deep     
Author:           Chloe Neill
Pages:             321
Catagory:        Vampires

The story:


Clouds are brewing over Cadogan House, and recently turned vampire Merit can’t tell if this is the darkness before the dawn or the calm before the storm. With the city itself in turmoil over paranormals and the state threatening to pass a paranormal registration act, times haven’t been this precarious for vampires since they came out of the closet. If only they could lay low for a bit, and let the mortals calm down. 

That’s when the waters of Lake Michigan suddenly turn pitch black-and things really start getting ugly. 

Chicago’s mayor insists it’s nothing to worry about, but Merit knows only the darkest magic could have woven a spell powerful enough to change the very fabric of nature. She’ll have to turn to friends old and new to find out who’s behind this, and stop them before it’s too late for vampires and humans alike

The view of a book addict:


I just love this series, so I really wanted to know how the story would continue. Merit is one of my favourite vampires and I just love how Chloe Neill portrays her. This story was really good if you ask me, the things that happened in this book are really surprising.
I didn’t know who was behind all the magic in the book right until the end. When the other characters in the book found out who did it. So that’s a great thing about this book, you don’t know right away what’s going on and who did what.

The verdict of a book addict:


A great book in the series, I loved it from the first page to the last. I can’t wait to read the next book!

Review: Hard Bitten by Chloe Neill

Published 10/07/2011 by supernaturalreadingaddict
Title:               Hard Bitten  

Author:           Chloe Neill
Pages:             350
Catagory:        Vampires

The story:


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 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 too 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..

The view of a book addict:


I hated this book, not because it’s a bad book but because of something that happens in this book. If you’ve already read this book you probably know what I’m talking, about if you haven’t don’t worry I’m not going to spoil it for you.
Of course this book was amazing, there was a lot of action and a lot of sexual tension. The story moves along in a fast pace and I just couldn’t put this book down. I wanted to know how it would end.

The verdict of a book addict:


I great book in a great series! I can’t wait to read what’s going to happen in the next book!

Goodreads summary 

‘A fun cast of quirky character and smokin’-hot sexual tension… a stunning combination’ Tate Hallaway  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 Cadogan House with protest signs that could turn to pitchforks at any moment. Behind its doors, things between Merit and her Master, green-eyed heartbreaker Ethan Sullivan are… tense, to say the least. But they have to work together when the mayor of Chicago calls Merit and Ethan to a clandestine meeting: there’s been a violent vampire attack which has left three women missing. The mayor’s message is simple: get your House in order. Or else. Merit needs to get to the bottom of this crime, but it’s not easy when she can’t tell who’s on her side.

Review: Twice bitten by Chloe Neill

Published 23/12/2010 by supernaturalreadingaddict

Goodreads summary:

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.

Review: Spoiler alert

The story picks up where the last book stopped, Merit goes to the appointment that was mentioned in the note she got. Here she meets with the leader of the rogue vampires and he has a proposition for her. He wants her to join the Red Guard, wich means that if there is a war she will be asked to stop being loyal to her liege ( Ethan Sullivan ) and join the Guard to keep all the vampires save. But this also means she ahs to spy on her Liege and that is something Merit isn’t willing to do yet. After reading this chapter I really thought it would be more about the Red Guard but it acutally goes in a whole other direction.

The end of the last book also tells us that the werewolves are visiting the city to decide if they would stay where they are or if they would all go back to Aurora. The packleader of the werwolves asks Merit to be his bodyguard, but of course she doesn’t have to do this alone. Ethan sullivan will be at her side and he will be training her. Of course the tension between them is still there and to be honest I really thought to myself please do it already so that tension will be gone.

Ethan decides to break Merit’s heart and at the same time his old student and flame comes to the house. The meeting of the packs isn’t going according to plan of course and someone is trying to kill the Alpha, so Merit has to face Ethan en work with him even after he breaks her heart. I’m not going to tell the end of this book because you really should read it for yourselve.

Verdict

As I said before I really wanted Ethan en Merit to just get it on, so the tencion between them would dissapear. I loved the tension in the first two books but in the third book it kind of annoyed me.
But I really liked the whole werewolf story, it brought a lot of action to the book and I love some action.
The alpha did suprise me in het end! But what I really missed was the Red Guard, you’re told about it in the first chapter and it appears again later in the book but it’s not in the main story line. And because they build the tension for this in the first book I really expected it to be more prominent in this book.
But the book didn’t dissapoint me I really loved it just as the first two books, Merit is her old self and just says what’s on  her mind. I really liked the new characters and would love to read more about them in the next book!

Review: Friday night bites ( a chicagoland vampires novel ) by Chloe Neill

Published 26/11/2010 by supernaturalreadingaddict

Good reads summary:

The story of a young heiress’s initiation into the dark society of the Chicagoland Vampires continues… 

Ten months after vampires revealed their existence to the mortals of Chicago, they’re enjoying a celebrity status usually reserved for the Hollywood elite. But if people learn about the Raves-mass feeding parties where vampires round up humans like cattle—the citizens will start sharpening their stakes. 

So now it’s up to the new vampire Merit to reconnect with her upper class family and act as liaison between humans and bloodsuckers, and keep the more unsavory aspects of the vampire lifestyle out of the media. But someone doesn’t want peace between them—someone with an ancient grudge…


Review:


I thought the first book in this series was amazing and I really wanted to read the second book.
To be honest I had a little trouble getting into the story, I missed the exciting beginning the first book had.

But getting into the story I just fell in love again with the characters. The story just picks up were it left in the first book.
Merit is still trying to figure out what she feels for Ethan sullivan and Morgan and of course still trying to figure out her new vampire life.

I just realy loved the story and I can’t wait for the next book!!
