Midnight Marked by Chloe Neill
What can I say, I’m a Chloe Neill fan and I flat out love her storytelling. Midnight Marked, for me, was a marvelous adventure in the masterfully developed Chicagoland Vampire world.
Ethan’s creator, thought long dead, has returned and wants what he thinks his due…everything Ethan has which includes Cadogan house and Merit.
Has Ethan grown powerful enough in the past few centuries to take on his master? You are about to find out.
Merit has never backed down from a challenge but it seems Ethan’s master has learned a few new tricks…like invading Merit’s dreams.
But this past master isn’t the only enemy coming back to haunt Merit and Ethan, greed and grudges have carried over from one that is truly dead, putting all the houses at risk and another focusing their machinations on vampires and the power.
If that isn't enough, it seems that there are strange, magical, sacrificial murders occurring throughout the city of Chicago. Merit must uncover the plot before the fragile balance in the supernatural world unravels.
I love how Merit and Ethan have become a well-oiled partnership, that support each other’s strengths and compensate for their weeknesses. Although…their choices for food may not always jive they have the perfect partnership. I half wonder where Neill might take us next. The prophecy of a vampire child looms with the portent of a great sacrifice hanging over their heads. We’ve seen so many changes and amazing characters’ growth.
I wouldn’t have given up one second of this adventure and highly recommend any urban fantasy fan to check out the Chicagoland Vampires. I simply loved having an opportunity to dive back into this world with Midnight Marked, its a ride no one should miss.
I received this ARC copy of Midnight Marked from Berkley Publishing Group - NAL in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication March 1, 2016.
