After all the mess Celina left and all the bridges she started to burn it is time to rebuild and hopefully create new alliances for the Vampires of Chicago. With an opportunity to make amends at least to one group Cadogan House jumps to the opportunity to help keep the alpha Gabriel Keene safe while the Shifters Meeting takes place in Chicago.
This time Merit our favorite almost three month old Sentinel must tag team with Ethan Sullivan the master of the Cadogan House and infuriatingly handsome vampire to keep Gabriel Keene safe.
It seemed like a simple job until someone decides to attack Gabriel and Merit finds herself in the line of fire. Keeping Gabriel safe will soon be the lightest of her problems for tensions between Shifters and Vampires start to flare once again, and soon name calling can turn into a war between them, specially now that Shifters are in Chicago to decide if they stay and fight or retreat to a safe place.
Here's the deal I love the Chicagoland Vampires series and so I hold it up to high standards, if it was any other book it would be getting 5 broken TV's meaning get your butt of the couch turn of the TV and start reading this awesome book. Which this book deserves, but I am giving it 4 stars because of the series it's part of.
As part of the series this book moves more slowly then the others, which is not a bad thing, I feel this book is one of this transitions, a collection of things you need to know so that when the bomb of epicness is released we can look back and it will all make sense.
This book is more about the relationships around Merit and the feud that shifters and vampires have had. We learn about the prejudice they both hold against each other. We get to see Merit mend relationships, take risks and grow as a vampire/person?
As I said this book alone deserves 5 starts, but as part of the series it's from it gets 4 stars. I wouldn't change a thing because Chloe Neill knows how to deliver and I wouldn't dare to change anything for it might spoil some great stuff she will have installed for us.
Silver eyes, fights, shifters and an expansion of the of the Chicago supernatural is some of the things you can expect from this thrilling third installment of the Chicagoland vampire series.
