Goodreads Summary:

First in a brand new series about a Chicago graduate student's introduction into a society of vampires.

Sure, the life of a graduate student wasn't exactly glamorous, but it was Merit's. She was doing fine until a rogue vampire attacked her. But he only got a sip before he was scared away by another bloodsucker and this one decided the best way to save her life was to make her the walking undead.

Turns out her savior was the master vampire of Cadogan House. Now she's traded sweating over her thesis for learning to fit in at a Hyde Park mansion full of vamps loyal to Ethan "Lord o' the Manor" Sullivan. Of course, as a tall, green-eyed, four-hundred- year-old vampire, he has centuries' worth of charm, but unfortunately he expects her gratitude and servitude. But an inconvenient sunlight allergy and Ethan's attitude are the least of her concerns. Someone's still out to get her. Her initiation into Chicago's nightlife may be the first skirmish in a war and there will be blood.


Another I seen floating around that caught my attention.

Since her mother's murder, Claire has done everything possible to make a safe, secure life for herself in a city where danger lurks on every street corner, especially in the dark of night. But nothing can prepare her for the powerful and sexual medieval warrior who sweeps her back into his time—a treacherous, frightening world where the hunters and the hunted are one and the same.

The underground population of witches, vampires, werewolves—creatures of dreams and nightmares—has lived beside humans for centuries, hiding their powers. But after a genetically engineered virus wipes out a large part of humanity, many of the "Inderlanders" reveal themselves, changing everything.

Rachel Morgan, witch and bounty hunter with the Inderland Runner Services, is one of the best at apprehending supernatural lawbreakers throughout Cincinnati, but when it comes to following the rules, she falls desperately short. Determined to buck the system, she quits and takes off on the run with an I.S. contract on her head and is reluctantly forced to team up with Ivy, Inderland's best runner . . . and a living vampire. But this witch is way out of her league, and to clear her name, Rachel must evade shape-changing assassins, outwit a powerful businessman/crime lord, and survive a vicious underground fight-to-the-death . . . not to mention her own roommate.

BLHmistress said...

@Larissa thanks to you my reason for The Hollow series , can't wait to get them. And the Chicagoland series sounds so so good too.

@pussreboots its okay checking it out.

stitches said...

I love the style of your blog! It's very bold and I love things that have more substance behind them...


I think that you should definitely buy Some Girls Bite. I haven't read the other ones, but i think that Chloe Neill really knows how to keep a reader interested in her work. Her work is similar to that of Jeaniene Frost, when it comes to style of the writing, so if you liked Night Huntress Series, you will definitely like Some Girls Bite.

Jennifer said...

I've had Dead Witch Walking in my TBR for a while now it sounds like a great read. Maybe (fingers crossed) I'll get to it soon. The other two are new to me...nice covers though.

Celine said...

Nice wishlist!

I've only read the Kim Harrison series, I'm sure you will like them if you're into urban fantasy.

Hope you get to them soon (:

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

I am so far behind in the Kim Harrison series... I totally need to fix that, but doing so will put me behind in all the other series I'm working my way through, too...

Ever think there's TOO MUCH good stuff out there?

Stopping in via the new thread at Ning, the one all about making new followers. I hope you'll stop in at West of Mars.

Orhedea said...

Oh, blast you! I have a serious exam tomorrow and now i'm stuck behind "Some Girls Can Bite". It's pretty good.

The Mistress of the Dark said...

I'm going to have to check out the Brenda Joyce series. I'm only used to her historical fiction.
