Review: Hard Bitten by: Chloe Neill

Title: Hard Bitten 
Author: Chloe Neill
Publisher: NAL Trade
Format: Paperback ( 350 p.) Personal Purchase


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 an 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 to be 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.

My Thoughts: 

This book follows Merit as she is helping her house after the mess that happened in the previous book.  Someone is messing with the humans again this time using a special pull that alters the mind of people.  Merit and Ethan are looking into what could be going on.  Unfortunately the council sent a representative to check on Ethan's house which puts them all under fire for anything and everything.  What a new girl vampire to do?

I love this series it's a lot of fun and keeps you on your toes.  You find you can't wait to see what is next.  I love watching Merit, Mall, Catcher and everyone else it's like when your favorite paranormal tv show comes back from a hiatus you get all excited to see what is next!
