I loved the book. The heroine is gutsy. The hero, if he is one (we will see), is a 400-year old vampire. Neither wants to attracted to the other, but luckily for us, no choice.
The main character, Merit, is great! She's attacked, throat torn by a vampire. Another vampire saves her life by changing her into a vampire; and the vampires can't understand why she's mad and angry and confused, oh and let's not forget grateful. But she handles her change in life and status, by holding close to the relationships that help define her, best friend and roommate, Mallory, and her grandfather. The snarking (love that word) between Merit and Mallory is hilarious, it provides Merit with normality.
Ethan, the master vampire of Cadogan House who changed Merit, is definitely an alpha male. He is in charge. He is the protector. And he is Merit's biggest challenge, because she would prefer to avoid him and his attitude.
I enjoyed this visit to Chicago. And shall definitely be going back for another visit into Chole Neill's world.
