Author: Chloe Neill
Genre: Fantasy, Paranormal Romance
Series: Heirs of Chicagoland #1
A few years ago, I discovered these amazing paranormal books. I am not one for vampire novels, but I managed to get hooked on the Chicagoland Vampire series by Chloe Neill. As in I devoured the entire series in a ridiculously short amount of time. This is not your Twilight nor your typical vampire novel. There are shifters, vampires, sorcerers, etc. There is politics, intrigue, and romance.
This book has it all - vampires, shifters, fairies, sorcerers as well as political intrigue, murder, suspense, magic, and a potential romantic relationship between Elisa and another character.
This is a fast-paced, full length novel that keeps you entertained right until the very end. The European vampires are entering peace talks and are in Chicago. While at a celebration at Cadogan’s house, one the delegates is murdered and a shifter friend is found, confused holding the knife. I enjoyed reading how the story unfolded. There were many things at play. Who or which supernatural beings performed the murder? Why are the Fae suddenly acting so odd?
Elisa is a strong character who loves her friends fiercely and wants the violence to stop and have peace. She is battling an inner demon - one that powerful and scares her. Connor is a hot, sexy alpha member of the wolf pack that you cannot help, but love. Lulu, Catcher and Mallory’s daughter, is Elisa’s quirky best friend. All the characters were well developed and I am looking forward to seeing them in the future books. There were some short scenes with Merit and Ethan, which I loved, but I would have liked to have read some with Mallory and Catcher.
I received this book through Netgalley and I voluntarily leave this review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
