First in a brand new series about a Chicago graduate student?s introduction into a society of vampires.Sure, the life of a graduate student wasn?t exactly glamorous, but it was Merit?s. She was doing fine until a rogue vampire attacked her. But he only got a sip before he was scared away by another bloodsucker?and this one decided the best way to save her life was to make her the walking undead. Turns out her savior was the master vampire of Cadogan House. Now she?s traded sweating over her 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 expects her gratitude? and servitude. But an inconvenient sunlight allergy and Ethan?s attitude are the least of her concerns. Someone?s still out to get her. Her initiation into Chicago?s nightlife may be the first skirmish in a war?and there will be blood.

4,5 stars Did I love this book? Well, damn. Merit blew my fucking world out of its hinges. Having been robbed of her humanity after a vicious vampire attack, Merit, grad student and daughter of a mediatic figure in the Chicago scene, is rescued by Ethan Sullivan, who makes her a vampire. ...
You know... I really didn't think I would like this. I did. I read the series straight through until I felt like the characters were getting cardboard and forgettable and dropped it. Took a number of books for it to get there. Not bad.
First of all, if you are looking for a serious read, this isn't the book for you. This is a book for readers with a love of the paranormal who are looking for a story with fun characters, humor, action, and a strong female lead. Merit is that female lead and most of the story deals with her trying...
