Fantasy Urban

Adjusting to her role as a Sentinel in Cadogan House and trying to ignore her attraction to the Master, Ethan Sullivan, Merit has to learn the value of "plausible deniability" in regard to hunting down the perpetrators of vampire raves: someone is using Cadogan House's bar to solicit humans to come to vampire raves, raves where magic and aggression are high, an unknown drug is circulating, and humans are dying. Meanwhile, humans are picketing the Chicago Cadogan House, and the leader of multiple Houses is thinking of taking control from Ethan. Is an old rival setting them up, or is the damage coming from closer than they think? In addition, Merit learns something new about the night she was attacked by a vampire and saved by Ethan, who illegally turned her into a vampire without her consent.

The most recent installment of the Chicagoland Vampire novels, HARD BITTEN is a fast and exciting read.

SUMMARY

Times are hard for newly minted vampire Merit. Ever since shapeshifters announced their presence to the world, humans have been rallying against supernaturals-and they're camping outside of Cadogan House with protest signs that could turn to pitchforks at any moment. Inside its doors, things between Merit and her Master, green-eyed heartbreaker Ethan Sullivan are...tense. But then the mayor of Chicago calls Merit and Ethan to a clandestine meeting and tells them about a violent vamp attack that has left three women missing. His message is simple: get your House in order. Or else.

Merit needs to get to the bottom of this crime, but it doesn't help that she can't tell who's on her side. So she secretly calls in a favor from someone who's tall, dark, and part of underground vamp group that may have some deep intel on the attack. Merit soon finds herself in the heady, dark heart of Chicago's supernatural society-a world full of vampires who seem ready to fulfill the protesting human's worst fears, and a place where she'll learn that you can't be a vampire without getting a little blood on your hands...
