Book: Friday Night Bites (Chloe Neill)
Series or Stand-Alone: Series (Book 2, The Chicagoland Vampires)
Read Chapter 1 of Friday Night Bites
Description: Ten months after vampires revealed their existence to the mortals of Chicago, they're enjoying a celebrity status usually reserved for the Hollywood elite. But if people learn about the Raves-mass feeding parties where vampires round up humans like cattle—the citizens will start sharpening their stakes.
So now it's up to the new vampire Merit to reconnect with her upper class family and act as liaison between humans and bloodsuckers, and keep the more unsavory aspects of the vampire lifestyle out of the media. But someone doesn't want peace between them—someone with an ancient grudge…
I truly enjoyed the second installment of the Chicagoland Vampires series, Friday Night Bites. The storyline was intriguing and entertaining to follow and as always, Merit was a hoot. After reading Some Girls Bite, I hadn't exactly warmed up to Ethan, but after book 2, I really like his character. I think the author expanded on book one in a great way, and introduced and integrated new characters into the plot beautifully. I also felt like the pace and tone of the book matched the first installment; which isn't always to case. I only had a few issues with this book. One was that we didn't really see enough of Mallory, I hope in the 3rd book her character will take more of a front seat position. I also felt like the ending was a bit rushed and the Merit/Mallory relationship was a bit off. All in all though, I really enjoyed the book and am egarly anticipating the next!
