Hard Bitten : A Chicagoland Vampires Novel Paperback
by Chloe Neill
Part of the Chicagoland Vampires series
Times are hard for newly minted vampire Merit. Ever since shapeshifters announced their presence to the world, humans have been rallying against supernaturals - and they're camping outside Cadogan House with protest signs that could turn to pitchforks at any moment.
Behind its doors, things between Merit and her Master, green-eyed heartbreaker Ethan Sullivan are ...tense, to say the least.
But they have to work together when the mayor of Chicago calls Merit and Ethan to a clandestine meeting: there's been a violent vampire attack which has left three women missing.
The mayor's message is simple: get your House in order. Or else. Merit needs to get to the bottom of this crime, but it's not easy when she can't tell who's on her side.
So she goes outside Cadogan House, secretly calling in a favour from someone who's tall, dark, and part of an underground vamp group which might be able to shed some light on the attack.
It's not long before Merit finds herself in the dark, heady heart of Chicago's supernatural society - which seems to be full of vampires ready to fulfill the human's worst fears. She's about to learn that you can't be a vampire without getting a little blood on your hands ...

Review by wyvernfriend
This one started slowly for me but as it went on and the action ramped up it few by. And then the end, Merit learns something about her father and something else breaks her heart, oh wow, that came out of nowhere.Merit is working as sentinel, doing research about a new drug on the market that's making vampires uninhibited, more bloodthirsty, which is putting the vampire community in danger from the human community. Making the already fragile peace even more fragile. To add to the stress there's a vampire from England assesing Cadogan House, and he's not sure that peace with humanity is a good thing.Some moments flowed better than others but overall it was a very interesting read and I'm looking forward to the next in the series.
