Twice Bitten : A Chicagoland Vampires Novel Paperback
by Chloe Neill
Part of the Chicagoland Vampires series
Merit, Chicago's newest vampire, is learning how to play nicely with others.
Other supernaturals, that is. Shapeshifters from across the country are convening in the Windy City, and as a gesture of peace, Master Vampire Ethan Sullivan has offered their leader a very special bodyguard: Merit.
Merit is supposed to protect the Alpha, Gabriel Keene - and to spy for the vamps while she's at it.
Oh, and luckily Ethan's offering some steamy, one-on-one combat training sessions to help her prepare for the mission. Merit has to accept the assignment, even though she knows that she'll probably regret it. And she's not wrong. Someone is gunning for Gabriel Keene, and Merit soon finds herself in the line of fire.
She'll need all the help she can get to track down the would-be assassin, but everywhere she turns, there are rising tensions between supernaturals - not least between her and a certain green-eyed, centuries old master vampire.

Review by wyvernfriend
Merit is still learning, but finding that maybe, just maybe, she's not wrong for the job of Sentinel and that there's a hope for herself and Ethan. She's also drawn into shifter politics. Things are not going well for a lot of people and she seems to be a focus for a lot of what's going on. Partially because people underestimate her and assume as a new vampire she wouldn't understand, but she's powerful and is begining to realise it.I liked it, maybe not as much as book 1, but still I want to keep reading. Merit in my minds eye doesn't look like the cover, she looks better. (also, dear cover photographer, Cavalry Sabre=/= Katana) I can't wait to see what happens next. Things are complicated in her life but she's managing to get places and come to terms with her present life.
