Some Girls Bite (Chicagoland Vampires #1)
by Chloe Neil
I was a grad student until Chicago vampires announced their existence to the world, and a rogue vampire attacked me, scared by the master of Cadogan House. To save me, Ethan Sullivan converted me. The Lord of the Hyde Park manor is tall, green-eyed, full of four centuries worth of charm. Suddenly I am handy with serious weaponry, and pursued by an unknown enemy.
This is one of those series I've had for ever in my TBR pile. What was holding me back? I'm not at all a fan of the cover. Sorry if you think different hehe.
But I'm so glad I decided to check it anyway.
What finally conviced me, was not the blurb that I really liked, but a phrase I read that I found funny:
“He's twenty-nine. And what did you think he was going to look like?"
"You know-old. Grizzled. Long white beard. Scruffy robes. Loveable, smart, a little absent minded."
I bit back a grin.
" I said 'sorcerer,' not 'Dumbledore.' So he's hot. It could be worse.”
Through this book, I've had ups and downs but it end up pretty good. I liked almost everything about it, the premise, the mystery, the writing, the characters... all of it.
I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 just because I would have wanted a little more intensity in every aspect, which I'm sure I will get in the next instalment as the characters mature and they gain depth.
The premise: original. Yes, vampire's existence is now known by humans, we've read about that, but that's not the unique part. I loved the way the vampires are united in groups called Houses and how each House has specific characteristics and ways to behave. We have some killings that are the beginning of the action packed plot.
Characters: I enjoyed the characters very much. I like that they feel real but also have a funny side, like Merit and her friend Mallory. They made me laugh so often. They were great and brave, which is a plus for heroines.
Ethan is delicious and powerful, a true leader and he is super sexy. And so is Morgan.
Actually, Morgan is beyond hot, everything Ethan is but 10 times more. *swoon* Can't wait to read more about these 2.
|My Morgan L&G! :p|
Writing: amazing. Impeccable. Flowed smoothly and just left me with the urge to read more.
Will I recommend it? Absolutely. I'm getting book 2 ASAP.
