It's All Fun and Games Till The Girl Has to Go In The Swamp
The Hunt - Chloe Neill

If you've read the first two you know Claire and Liam went separate ways. If you haven't read them, go read them or you'll be lost. This is a series that builds on each previous book. Claire and Liam, they will be reunited but not for the reason you might expect. Liam has been framed for a murder, in a very personal way. The legal forces are looking for him and anyone who knows him. This has Claire and her crew hustling to find him and associates to warn them. Unfortunately, he has gone off the radar, deep into the swamp. The hunt for the truth, him and his associates leads them into dangerous places. Oh the ending, get those cleats ready because it's a steep cliffhanger.
I really enjoyed this 3rd book, even if it left me hanging off a cliff, again. The pacing was just right even during the semi laid back scenes. The side characters got some page time and almost stole the show, yeh you Moses. I admit to having doubts, it was a slow start the first 50 pages. I was looking at dropping it, but then it clicked on and never dimmed. Liam, who was a complete jerk up to this book,(in my humble opinion) might have upgraded to a bonehead. Claire deserves an award for her patience. Read the book you'll know what I'm talking about. There was magic, science, betrayal, mystery, danger, chasing, humor, and some lusting, a good mix.

And that's it for me with this series.
Friday Night Bites - Chloe Neill





Merit has become the ultimate Mary Sue. Smarter, stronger, more alluring, well connected, ex-Debutante, but rebellious, intellectual, loyal, sassy - she is everything with legs for miles.


And she is boring.

Incredibly boring and predictable. Totally crushing on Ethan, because he is the most beautiful thing she has ever seen.


And the rest: the story has so many plotholes, it is not even a real story anymore.

First the whole "Celina has been set lose" line - her whole incarceration doesn't make sense. If humans are so hung up on security and wary of vampires, she would have been executed immediately and not expediated to the UK for some prison time for killing two humans. That just does not fly with the "Ethan is so worried Humans will kill the vampires off or at least ground them in their mansions" stupidity.


She was kept alive to be re-used as baddy. A bad choice as she was uninteresting the first time around.


Then Ethan himself. He is supposed to be this great master and so on, but his only plan so far is to use Merit's social clout. Wow, how conniving!


Then the blackmail story. The threat was to expose the vampire rave parties and thus sway the Humans against the vampires. This threat was voiced by a shifter - a supernatural group that has not been outed yet.

See any problem with that? A super secret group threatens another group with some minor secret?




Major major pet peeve: boy. Ethan gets called "boy" a lot. Morgan the sad clown gets called "boy". Merit talks about herself as "girl". She is 28, for g*d's sake. Ethan is over 400 and was 30 years when he was turned.


This intensifies the feeling of a very immature and at the same time unhealthily horny Young Adult story.

It had some potential.
Some Girls Bite - Chloe Neill

I liked the set up with the bookworm turned vampire.


I liked how present her BFF was.


I was ok with the super hyper sexyness of all things vampire.


I wasn't a huge fan of the villain - very standard, not impressive at all.


What I didn't like: the inconsistencies in the story. The over the top attraction between Merit and Ethan. That was more than ridiculous.

As the Chicagoland Vampires series continues, Merit and Ethan find themselves in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse, where winning may require the ultimate sacrifice...


A vampire’s grudges don’t stay dead long...


Merit is one of Chicago's most skilled vampire warriors; these days, she doesn't scare easily. But she and Master vampire Ethan have made a new and powerful enemy, and he won't give up until he owns the Windy City.


With his last plan thwarted, he's more determined than ever to watch Cadogan burn. Ethan has put the House's vampires on high alert, but their enemy will stop at nothing, including pitting vampire against vampire...


In this deadly game of cat-and-mouse, the stakes are life or death—and winning might mean sacrificing everything...

The Chicagoland Vampires needs to be read in order.


Midnight Marked is book twelve in the Chicagoland Vampires series by Chloe Neill. It’s full of action, adventure, and mystery.


I’ve had my highs and lows with this series and I think I’m ready for it to end.


In the past year Merit has gone from a reluctant vampire to doing whatever it takes to keep her vampire family safe. She’s now celebrating her one-year vampire anniversary and her relationship with Ethan is strong. It’s been one interesting journey to this point.


A lot of questions that I thought would remain mysteries where answered. We also see the House call in Paige for help with this particular mystery. And, when I thought we wouldn’t be getting any new supernaturals in the mix, Neill brings in a necromancer. I enjoyed Annabelle an added secondary character to the world and story. She was quite interesting and useful. Their is also no shortage of humor added into the mix while these characters try to figure out who or what is causing problems in good old Chicago.


My only issue and this issue has run throughout the series is that I never feel that Ethan and Merit are equals. He calls her Sentinel and she calls him Master. With a group, that seams ok, but when they are together it just feels wrong, not right. Their relationship and how it’s portrayed is the one thing I’ve had trouble with throughout the series.


Audio Note: I did try the audiobook first, but I stopped it after 2-5 min in. I hated the male voices for Ethan and Catcher. They sounded so wrong. I couldn’t do the book in audio, so I read it like all the previous editions. (Narrator: Sophie Eastlake)


Rated: 3.5 Stars
