Wild Things, book 9 in the Chicagoland Vampire series seems to start off right after Biting Bad. The Mayor is pissed off with all things super natural so she is targeting Ethan. This time Ethan does the weird thing and hides out hoping things will calm down. Unfortunately he has to stay with the shifters who are none too happy to host the vampires. Then there is a magical incident and the Ethan and Merit are blamed.
Chicagoland Vampires has always been this kind of weird series for me. I like it but I am not really in love with it. So what I liked in this book is watching Ethan finally decide he wants Merit and does not care who knows. I enjoyed all of the public displays of affection. I really enjoyed this side of Gabe we saw in this book he has a lot of stresses as a leader and it was cool to see some of the sacrifices
Now what is getting a little old – why is Ethan and Merit always in the midst of things. This go round Merit is frequently called a good detective and that puzzles me because it seems like she is actually the slowest in the bunch. The other thing that is getting a little old is the prophecy and it seemed a little illogical. Other things that did not make sense to me was the whole domestic terrorists with no FBI involvement?? Um ok and then the event at the Lupercalia – yeah that still never quite made sense.
But let’s face it I don’t read these books for the mystery J The simple way these things get solved is always a bit like REALLY???
All in all not a bad book just not awesome.
