They killed me They healed me They changed meSure 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 undeadTurns 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 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 servitudeBut 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

    Okay so I've changed this review as a series overviewI have a list of favourite series and this one has easily pushed its way on there with Darkfever Bittenand Magic BitesWhat I really enjoy about this series Merit does not choose to be a vampire but she lives with the changes made in her life and adjusts with as much dignity as she canShe deals intelligently and confidently at all times She does not stupidly talk out of her ass cough Rose Vampire Academycough It's actually quite refreshing to read a character so mature and who holds herself up with dignity I enjoy Ethan's character because his relationship with Merit is not joyfully accepted by all of those around her He's a 400 year old vampire and not prone to easily accept emotions and humanity Merit constantly questions whether he is a good part of her life and how her relationship with him has changed her and whether she wants to change This kind of self reflection was an absolute delight for me when compared to other books where the heroine's thought processes were OMG He's so hawt We arez ment to be 2gether 4EVA SCEWZ everyone else Cough Bella Twilight Cough Luce Fallen cough Nora Hush Hush CoughThe political manuevering between the supernaturals humans ombudsman etc is interesting to me and it actually is thoughtfully executed The last two books had endings that I hadn't predicted and a mystery that I didn't actually manage to figure out ahead of time which was VERY much appreciatedEthan is an ass but Merit gives back as good as she takes and even though they're supposed to be in a MasterServant relationship but they quickly end up as equal partners Her ideas are respected and novelty she actually makes intelligent choices cough mostly coughThere were strong positive female relationships in this book It's nice to have a character who can be surrounded by other hot confident women without issue So overall these books were fantastic for me I've spent three almost sleepless nights reading the books because I simply couldn't put them down until finished For me that's the mark of a great bookPS Oh and did I mention the sexiness? Oh the sexinessOkay now that I'm done back to dancingDances
