Some Girls Bite - Chloe Neill

Sure, the life of a graduate student wasn’t exactly glamorous, but it was mine. I was doing fine until Chicago’s vampires announced their existence to the world-and then a rogue vampire attacked me. But he only got a sip before he was scared away by another bloodsucker… and this one decided the best way to save my life was to make me the walking undead.

Turns out my savior was the master vampire of Cadogan House. 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 my burgeoning powers (all of a sudden, I’m surprisingly handy with some serious weaponry), an inconvenient sunlight allergy, and Ethan’s attitude are the least of my concerns. Someone’s still 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…

This urban fantasy series opens with the life of a university student turned inside out. Immediately thrown into a new world as a vampire after an attack, Merit doesn’t embrace what destiny has shown her is the path to her future. Soon the facts to her attack reveal more than a random incident as someone continually repeats the act, only succeeding in murdering women and leaving clues to point fingers at Chicago’s vampire communities. As possible motives intriguingly unfold through the pages, the entertaining characters roll the increasingly thickening plot of politics and power into an unexpected tale. With the foundation set for a great series the frosting to this tale is a complicated romantic pull between Merit and a vampire she has vowed her eternal loyalty to.
My Rating - 3
