"Vampires in Chicago! You'd think headlines like that would have provoked the fine citizens of the Windy City to take up arms against us bloodsucking fiends. Instead, 10 months later, we're enjoying a celebrity status reserved for the Hollywood elite - fending off paparazzi only slightly less dangerous than cross - and stake-wielding slayers. Don't get me wrong. Joe Public isn't exactly thrilled to be living side-by-side with the undead, but at least they haven't stormed the castle...yet.
"All that will change once they learn about the Raves - mass feeding parties where vampires round up humans like cattle and drink themselves silly. Most civilized vampires frown on this behavior - but that doesn't make good copy for a first-time reporter looking to impress his high-society family.
"So now my 'master' - the centuries-old yet gorgeously well-preserved Ethan Sullivan - wants me to reconnect with my own upper-class family and act as liaison between humans and vampires...and keep the more unsavory aspects of our existence out of the media. But someone doesn't want people and vamps to play nicey-nice - someone with an ancient grudge."

the narrator did a great job.
I really like this series and want to continue on. author does a good job building up the key characters. each book builds on the last book. very fun to read.
Im not overly impressed with this series. The writing comes across as very juvenile. The main character is 28 and behaves/thinks/speaks like a 14 year old girl. (What 28 year old woman would refer to a 400 year old vampire as a "cute boy"?) The overall storyline is interesting tho, and I will probably finish the series while I wait for my fave authors to update their series.
This series is my first
Learned proper pronunciation of terms commonly used in the book!
I really like the characters. The author does a really good job of making the reader feel connected to them
She does a great job! I think she does a great Merit and Mallory
Sci-fi, detective, cozy. Only give 5s to those books I think stand above the rest. 4 is a good solid book. 3 is average, nothing special.
I like the second book a little bit better than the first. At times it was a bit repetitive with house rules another relationship issues. However, good storytelling with a nice pace and kept my interest.
I thought this book was better than the first one. I enjoyed getting to know the characters a little more, and some of the turns in the story-line. Some stuff about Merritt gets explained more in this book.
I enjoyed the book 2 story and I am looking forward to book 3. I am intersted in development of the characters and what happens to them
lets just say awasome
merrit is my favorite in the entire series
too many to choose from
I listen to a bit of everything. Mostly Fantasy and paranormal romance with my wife. Along with mysteries/thrillers, even some sci-fi.
The second book in the Chicagoland Vampires Series starts just after the conclusion of the first. It does more character building and we get more time spent with Merit's family as Ethan wants to make in-roads with some of the prominent Chicago families. We get to learn more about Merit's past, some about Ethan and some others in the house. These are all good things, but the house is treated almost like a Frat/Sorority house with the way it functions, not like the way decades old + vampires should live and act. It's neat, but it gets silly. The antagonist from book 1 is back, and that would have been interesting except that nothing really gets resolved this time around. Something else threatens the house this time around and it's something we've seen before and it just didn't work for me. I gave it 3 stars because I like the world, and I like the Chicago setting, but the series feels more like a TV show where nothing much happens week to week, or in this case book to book. It's not bad, but there's better Urban fiction/Paranormal romance out there. I'm done with Chicagoland Vampires
I am a retired Court Reporter and I LOVE books. All kinds of books but my favorites are mysteries and period books. I like civil war books and some biographies.
This book is very exciting with a new twist to a vampire story. I really enjoyed it. The narrator is really good.
This second book was a bit slow to me what a few stupid parts. It is still okay and better than some. Hoping the book 3 is better. Will start it after I read Kim Harrison's A Perfect Blood Book 10 of the Hollows, narrated by Margarite Gavin who is my favorite narrator.
