Publisher's Summary

In the first thrilling installment of Chloe Neill's spinoff to the New York Times best-selling Chicagoland Vampires series, a new vampire will find out just how deep blood ties run. As the only vampire child ever born, some believed Elisa Sullivan had all the luck. But the magic that helped bring her into the world left her with a dark secret. Shifter Connor Keene, the only son of North American Central Pack Apex Gabriel Keene, is the only one she trusts with it. But she's a vampire and the daughter of a Master and a Sentinel, and he's prince of the Pack and its future king.  

When the assassination of a diplomat brings old feuds to the fore again, Elisa and Connor must choose between love and family, between honor and obligation, before Chicago disappears forever.

Great start to a new series

This really was good. It’s a bit slow but then gets nicely into the groove. The narrator‘s cadence was a bit slow. I had to set .25 times it faster and once I did the cadence was fine.

Good story

I liked the story and when the narrator uses the main characters voice as she’s talking it’s beautiful and sexy, but then she goes back to the annoying cadence with the snobby, hoity toity voice that has no pull.

Pleasantly Surprised

Though I loved the Chicagoland series and was super exited for this book, I didn’t have high expectations, as spin-off series can often be a pale imitation of the original. In addition, the cover of the book made me think of a Young Adult novel, so I thought it would be written in a younger voice. However, in my opinion, this book was a lot like the beginning of the Chicagoland novels~ written in the voice of a young adult just coming in to her full power and trying to figure out where her place is in the world. The main character doesn’t idealize her parents or hate them; instead she tries to discover who she is as an individual outside of her parents’ shadows. The book kept my interest, was well written, and the narration was excellent. In my opinion, the best narrators bring the story to life but in an understated manner that doesn’t distract the listener from the storyline. I’m very much looking forward to the next book in the series!!!

Great start to the series

I enjoyed the story a lot. It was great to be back with familiar characters again. I did not like the narrator at all. She spoke in a robot-like way that often caused my mind to wonder. Other than that, I'm looking forward to next installment. I hope there's a new narrator.

Can’t wait for next book!!

I love Chicagoland !!!! Honestly, it was great to see the babies all grown up, to have time with Methan and Gabriel, and to have another problem that needed to be solved.
Elisa seems to have grown up to be a perfect mix of her parents and I can hardly wait to see what happens with her and Connor “Stupid” Keene. Will be waiting impatiently:)

It’s getting even better in Chicago

I loved the Chicagoland series and in all honesty I didn’t think it could get much better than Merit and Ethan. But I think I was wrong the next generation looks like it could be even more exciting and interesting. I can’t wait to see that happens next with Connor and Alisa...this is going to be good.
