Blade Bound (Chicagoland Vampires) is an Awesome addition to this series!! The characters and story line are well-developed.  Merit and Ethan are preparing for the wedding, when a threat in the form of sorcery attacks the house. Now they have to and eliminate this threat before the wedding takes place. Sorcha Reed is back and terrorizing Chicago. It is so bad that the humans of Chicago are wanting to give up Merit and Ethan. The Fey, Werewolves and the Vamps are all getting together to get rid of the sorceress. This book tied everything up in a nice neat little bow. This was such a great book to read and I recommend it to everyone. I give BLADE BOUND 5/5 STARS.

MIDNIGHT MARKED is an action packed masterpiece! I love Chloe Neill’s writing style. I haven’t read any of her books in this series until November of last year. I read the first book and I was hooked. I started to binge read the whole series up to the last booked published. At least I only had a couple of months to wait for the chance to read MIDNIGHT MARKED. I cannot get enough of Merit and Ethan and the Cadogan House gang. This book starts out with Ethan and a few others taking Merit to a night Cubs game. She is so excited about going to the game that she wants to get there in time so she won’t miss the free Cubs flashlight that they are giving away. As usual, things don’t go as planned. Merit feels someone using magic and has to find where it originated. When she gets there she finds the body of a dead shifter. This starts a mad dash around the city to find out who is wielding magic in the city, and why are they going after shifters. This case puts a strain on the Shifter and Vampire relations. This is such a great story and series, and I recommend it to everyone. I cannot wait to see what else is in store for Merit and Ethan. I give MIDNIGHT MARKED 5/5 stars.




SOME GIRLS BITE(Chicagoland Vampires Book 1) BY CHLOE NEILL

The First Chicagoland Vampires Novel

They killed me. They healed me. They changed me.

Sure, the life of a graduate student wasn’t exactly glamorous, but I was doing fine until Chicago’s vampires announced their existence to the world. When a rogue vampire attacked me, I was lucky he only got a sip. Another bloodsucker scared him off and decided the best way to save my life was to make me the walking undead.

Now I’ve traded sweating over my 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 my gratitude—and servitude. Right…

But someone’s out to get me. Is it the rogue vampire who bit me? A vamp from a rival House? An angry mob bearing torches?

My initiation into Chicago’s nightlife may be the first skirmish in a war—and there will be blood.


SOME GIRLS BITE is a roller coaster of a ride. The characters and story line is well-developed.  I love the character of Merit. She is a grad student walking on campus at night, when she is bitten by a vampire. During the bite she has her throat ripped out. Ethan, the master of Cadogan house, scare off the rogue vamp who attacked Merit. Now the way to save her life is to change her into a vampire. She is later returned home after the change. Merit has to learn to be a vampire. This means that she has to learn to control her now heightened senses, her strength.   She helps Ethan to try to find the rogue who has attacked and killed other women .

When she is inducted into the Cadogan House, she is made the Sentinel of the house. Her job now is to protect the house from any and all threats. She is later faced with a complication of the change. During the change she was given drugs to make the change easier for her. This later causes her to attack Ethan, because of blood lust. The drugs interfered in the change and  caused her to not go through the complete change. Merit is a very strong vampire. She shows a very strong physce, which makes her not susceptible to glamor.  This is a great book and made me want more of Merit and Ethan. I ended up reading four more books, one after another. I love this book and series. I give SOME GIRLS BITE 5/5 STARS.

Book Description
Publication Date: August 4, 2015
A brand new series from New York Times bestselling author Chloe Neill.
Seven years ago, the Veil that separates humanity from what lies beyond was torn apart, and New Orleans was engulfed in a supernatural war. Now, those with paranormal powers have been confined in a walled community that humans call the District. Those who live there call it Devil‘s Isle.

Claire Connolly is a good girl with a dangerous secret: she’s a Sensitive, a human endowed with magic that seeped through the Veil. Claire knows that revealing her skills would mean being confined to Devil’s Isle. Unfortunately, hiding her power has left her untrained and unfocused.

Liam Quinn knows from experience that magic makes monsters of the weak, and he has no time for a Sensitive with no control of her own strength. But when he sees Claire using her powers to save a human under attack—in full view of the French Quarter—Liam decides to bring her to Devil’s Isle and the teacher she needs, even though getting her out of his way isn’t the same as keeping her out of his head.

As more and more Sensitives fall prey to their magic, and unleash their hunger on the city, Claire and Liam must work together to save New Orleans, or else the city will burn…

From the Trade Paperback edition.

THE VEIL is a wonderful masterpiece. The characters and story line are very well crafted. Claire is a sensitive. A human who is able to absorb magic and now has different magical ability. When the veil between humanity and the world beyond split open, a war broke out destroying the south eastern portion of the U.S.A . Now anyone with any magic must be captured, for magic is illegal. Claire has telekinesis, and must keep it a secret. Someone wants to open the Veil and wage war with those behind it. Claire and Liam, a bounty hunter, must stop them before they open it.  I loved this book, and cannot wait to read the next one. I give THE VEIL 5/5 STARS. I recommend this book to everyone.
