I’m back with the third entry in the Chicagoland Vampires series for this week’s Bookish Wednesday! It’s Twice Bitten by Chloe Neill!
Plot Synopsis: 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, Chicago’s newest vampire. 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.
Plot: The plot is intense as usual and while I cringed with the way Miss Neill decided to progress Ethan and Merit’s relationship it was the only real issue I have with the book. I did enjoy the supernatural political issues we get to learn more of in this book, and we get to see lots of ass kicking.
Characters: Of all the newcomers Berna is probably my favorite, with her being a gruff no nonsense sort of person she was an instant favorite. The rest of the newcomers were nice as well.
Overall: This was an excellent entry for the most part, but the romance part did feel off.
