Publisher's Summary

Merit is one of Chicago's most skilled vampire warriors; these days, she doesn't scare easily. But she and Master vampire Ethan have made a new and powerful enemy, and he won't give up until he owns the Windy City.

With his last plan thwarted, he's more determined than ever to watch Cadogan burn. Ethan has put the House's vampires on high alert, but their enemy will stop at nothing, including pitting supernatural against supernatural. In this deadly game of cat and mouse, the stakes are life or death - and winning might mean sacrificing everything.

I love the stuffing out of this series!

Midnight Marked, Book 12 of the Chicagoland Vampire Series, has begun bringing us one step closer to Ethan and Merit's prophecy told by pack leader Gabriel. Although this latest installment of the series, brings us to a full out war with an oldie but goodie of a villain, the story comes full circle right back to Merit's beginning. Holy crackers, who would have thought! Strap on your katana's and pack a battle snack cause your gunna need it!

Cadogan House is in the spotlight once again, and not in a good way. Their latest nemesis Adrian Reed stirs up some sheep soup, and is forcing Ethan and Merit to eat it. With the murder of a shifter, Gabriel and his pack are on a hair pin trigger for war. While Ethan and Merit try to uncover the true murderer, some of Gabriel's pack members go rogue, and bring a nasty fight to Cadogan's front door! Meanwhile, the Red Guard has been aloof with Merit lately, and she finally meets with them and voices her concerns and opinions on what has been going on with them in regards to not helping vampires, like their oath decrees. This outburst with the Red Guard forces Jonah, Merit's RG partner to have a heart to heart with her.

This book was incredible! I mean, I was all over the place with emotions. Conflict, unrequited love, loss, longing, betrayal, but above all else loyalty. Finally the other houses show some fracking back bone and stand to fight along side Cadogan House! I was so proud of Morgan, and happy that he wasn't the butt of their jokes in this book. Catcher showed some wicked moves, and Mallory kinda got on my nerves a bit when she confronted Merit about Gabriel's prophecy. The plot twist was pretty impressive with the way it tied things together that goes all the way back to book 1, my word! Midnight Marked delivered an excellent mix of excitement, action, and drama that kept me glued to my seat!

Narrator Sophie Eastlake is a Goddess. I love her, and she is fang-tab-ulous!

Oh, to be so creative!

I’ve really enjoyed this series. Actually, I didn’t think I would enjoy it so much. The plots have such creative elements in them that I am always pleasantly surprised. I wish I had the gift of being so creative but, alas, God didn’t grant me that gift. My only real criticism is about the narration. The narrator is very talent but, she struggles with performing male voices. Therefore, they sound like an elderly man or a breathing speaking man. This does not come across as Alpha Master Vampire, to me. Dual narration could have really improved the listen.Oh well, one more book in the series.

love the story but the narrator doesn't do it

The storyline is fantastic and I have enjoyed every one of the books in the series. With that being said Sophie Eastlake just doesn't bring the essence of the characters to life like the early books. I put off purchasing this audiobook for a while due to this . She can't do male voices , Ethan sounds like someone's creepy 80 uncle please fix this .

At Last....

Even though Merit, Ethan and their allies and friends are facing another earth shattering threat, I am just happy their personal life is also moving forward. Albeit at snail speed, but at least we are reading more than a phrase about the promised child they are supposed to have. Also at last, we have the marriage proposal from Ethan **sheesh**. Why am I talking about that instead of the potential threat from their current enemy? It is because I want some romance for once in their lives.

Apart from the first two books where the romance or the promise of one is balanced with the catastrophic fights, the series has been all about survival for the H and h and their friends. This book is no exception. It is full of action, but also a little bit of romance. This is one of my favorite series that I follow religiously. Love it.

I really do not like the actor's voice of the male characters, especially that of Ethan. It is crucial to get the hero's voice to pert.

Midnight Marked

Well holy snappola!
Ethan and Merit are in some kind of feud with a big money guy named Adrian Reed. He wants to take down Cadogan House and he thinks to do that he will get to Merit.

We already know that when Merit is targeted Ethan isn’t having it. But this Reed guy has his hand in a lot of things that is causing a lot of havoc.

Also he did it guy he popped the question in the midst of everything he did it and omg how sweet!! <3

I can’t believe we are getting close to finishing the series what will I do?

I do love that Merit get hangry it’s funny how she can devour so much food.
The narration is fantastic!

COULD BE BETTER

MERRITT annoys me every time I dive into this series makes me wanna yank my hair out. Hate the way they portray vampires some are ok (Like, Lindsey the other gaurds). I'd rather here it from the shifters point of view but would be too afraid this writer would destroy my view of shifters. Only reason I continue listen is for the plots would be a five star review without Merritt in it.
