Some Girls Bite : A Chicagoland Vampires Novel Paperback
by Chloe Neill
Part of the Chicagoland Vampires series
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 ...one who decided the best way to save my life was to take it. Turns out my saviour 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 also seems to expect my eternal 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 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's going to be blood ...

Review by wyvernfriend
The story occasionally wavered but overall this story of a vampire learning the ropes was interesting. Merit is happily working on her grad studies when she's attacked and almost killed by a vampire, however she's saved by a vampire and finds herself in a war of power, and she has the potential to be one of the powers.I did enjoy the read, there were some moments where it faltered a bit and didn't flow as smoothly as it possibly could but overall I was quite satisfied with it and look forward to more in this series.

A highly interesting read. One of the better vampire books that I've read in the past few years. And the good news is that it's book one.
