This week for Bookish Wednesday I’m covering the second book in the Chicagoland Vampire Series. It’s Friday Night Bites by Chloe Neill!
Plot Synopsis: Ten months after vampires revealed their existence to the mortals of Chicago, they’re enjoying a celebrity status reserved for the Hollywood elite. But once the public learns about the Raves—mass feeding parties where vampires round up humans like cattle and drink themselves silly—the citizens might start sharpening their stakes.
Cadogan House Master, vampire Ethan Sullivan, wants Merit, the House’s newest Novitiate, to reconnect with her upper-class family and work with the city’s other supernaturals to keep the more unsavory aspects of the vampire lifestyle out of the media.
Plot: The plot gets pretty intense fairly quickly and it’s quite a satisfying entry in the series. There are some parts I don’t enjoy, but that’s because of the use of certain romantic tropes.
Characters: We get introduced to a few new characters in this book, my favorite being Gabriel. That being said Ethan and Merit are still their snarky selves and I enjoy the heck out of them as well. Jeff is still another favorite and hopefully he’ll continue to be so in future books.
Overall: This is an excellent entry in a series that’s shaping up to be quite awesome.
