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, Chicago’s newest vampire. 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.
Unfortunately, someone is gunning for Gabriel, 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.
Twice Bitten is the third novel in the Chicagoland Vampire Series & this time readers are in for a wild, fur filled ride.
Merit is still coming into her own as a three month old vampire, turned without her permission when she was near death by her Master, Ethan. Merit has risen in the ranks fast, she now stands as the Cadogan Houses Sentinel & now Merit is set to protect Alpha, Gabriel. The Pack’s know a war is coming & they are deciding to stay & fight, or return to Alaska. As always with Merit & Ethan, there is out of control sexual tension & this time it’s a doozy. On top of that, Merit also finds out who has been sending her those mysterious letters, which could put a bigger strain on the rocky relationship she has with Ethan.
Chloe Neill has outdone herself with Twice Bitten, just when you think she can’t make the series any better, she throws out the best novel in the series! Twice Bitten is an action packed Urban Fantasy, heavy on the action & heavy on the sexual tension.
Between the action filled pace & the sexual tension I could feel all the way into my living-room, Twice Bitten is my favorite of the Chicagoland Vampire Series. I couldn’t put it down & as usual with a Chloe Neill novel, I was up until the wee hours of the morning. Did I mention we FINALLY find out what Merit’s first name is?! I didn’t even catch it right away, then I had a moment of “Whoa!”.
Merit is still one of my favorite heroines, she kicks ass to put it bluntly. She’s standing up for herself more & also becoming more outgoing with her fellow Vampires. Ethan. What can I say about Ethan other then I want to hit him & then kiss it better. I love me some Ethan. Then we have the Shifter’s, and boy is there some kinda drama happening there. Fights, deaths, shootings…the Shifter’s aren’t all furry & family oriented.There is also appearances by Catcher & Mallory, even if it’s a little tense between Mal & Merit. But really, what good friendship hasn’t had it’s tense moments?!
Chloe Neill’s world building continues to get better & better, you can almost feel the magic in the air. A wonderful contiunation to the series, I can’t wait for more.
