Series: Chicagoland Vampires 1
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Sure, the life of a graduate student wasn’t exactly glamorous, but it was Merit’s. She was doing fine until a rogue vampire attacked her. But he only got a sip before he was scared away by another bloodsucker—and this one decided the best way to save her life was to make her the walking undead.
Turns out her savior was the master vampire of Cadogan House. Now she’s traded sweating over her thesis for learning to fit in at a Hyde Park mansion full of vamps loyal to Ethan “Lord o’ the Manor” Sullivan. Of course, as a tall, green-eyed, four-hundred- year-old vampire, he has centuries’ worth of charm, but unfortunately he expects her gratitude—and servitude. But an inconvenient sunlight allergy and Ethan’s attitude are the least of her concerns. Someone’s still out to get her. Her initiation into Chicago’s nightlife may be the first skirmish in a war—and there will be blood.
Yes I have finally tried this series. I have heard a lot of about it and how Team Ethan is the best and how something that happened in the last book was shocking (oh and I actually know what since I am a very bad girl and asked someone.)
Back to the beginning. Merit does not want to be a vampire but she was saved from a certain death and this was the only way to survive. Therefore she has certain attitude problems towards her new Master Ethan, oh yes I love how she stands up to him and refuses to serve him hand and foot. I liked her at once, the same goes for her housemate Mallory, her new sparring buddy Catcher who is so cool and Morgan (Team Morgan! Please do not become a creep or evil cos I like him). Ethan then, sorry all, but he was an ass. Yes I know some like jerks but he was not for me. I saw the attraction, I am not blind, but I did not fall for him. But he was not a I wanna kick your ass jerk, he was more rolling my eyes jerk. And if he turns around then I am going to fall as hard as the rest of you.
The world was good. Vampires came out 8 months or so, but the rest of the paranormals have not. Everything is pretty civilized on the surface, even if I am sure we will see the dirt at the bottom when the series continues. A simple world with much to offer. And a good story about Merit trying to find her new vampire self and the hunt for a serial killer, the same that attacked her.
I liked it at once. I did not have to read far before I knew that I did not want to put this book down. I recommend it and I want to read book 2. Ok I need to read book 2. I want more.
ok I guess
