Twice Bitten: A Chicagoland Vampires Novel

Chloe Neill
For the first time in mass market, the third book in the New York Times bestselling Chicagoland Vampires series... Merit, Chicago’s newest vampire, is learning how to play well with other supernaturals. Shifters from across the country are convening in the Windy City, and as a gesture of peace, Master Vampire Ethan Sullivan has offered their leader a very special bodyguard: Merit. Merit is supposed to protect the Alpha, Gabriel Keene—and to spy for the vamps while she’s at it. Oh, and luckily Ethan’s offering some steamy, one-on-one combat training sessions to help her prepare for the mission. Merit must accept the assignment, even though she knows that she’ll probably regret it. Someone is gunning for Keene, and Merit soon finds herself in the line of fire. She’ll need all the help she can get to track down the would-be assassin, but everywhere she turns, there are rising tensions between supernaturals—not least between her and a certain green-eyed, centuries old master vampire.

Excellent having Merit and the gang back.  By "gang" with this series I definitely mean actual characters rather than cardboard characters just there for no real reason but it's still very much a one-woman show from her POV.  We do get to know more of everyone's backstory, definitely more about the shifters, and as expected I completely loathed Merit's continued "romance" with big house hauncho vampire ("Ethan"?).

 

Great book as well written as first two in series; but, he was particularly an asshole in this one.  At the risk of spoiler, Merit should have stuck to her gut feeling a romantic or sexual relationship was a bad idea.

 

I hate to dwell just on that because it was really a minuscule few paragraphs (and I overall enjoyed the book and will be continuing the series).  But between that with the resulting angst and the fact that this book is clearly just to move the series along versus a full "story" -- lost a star.
