The book is with Adult content so please, beware if you're under 18.
My knowledge about it was very limited since I hadn't read all that many reviews and only heard of it because of the release of the sixth book but I was eager to read and see what all the fuss was about.
Well now I know and I and fussing along with everyone. I have to say that I absolutely loved this and I can't wait to start reading book two.
It's officially my new obsession and that was pretty much all thanks to Merit. Every word that left her mouth had me grinning like and idiot and I absolutely loved the way she sees the world around her. She was not informed of the vampire politics and their way of living any more than the readers who are picking the book for the first time like me, and we got to learn along with her about how things work in the incredible vampire society that was build by Chloe Neill.
The world around Merit is interesting, new, it has fresh take on the whole 'vampire' issue and it was very well created.
The first few chapters, well actually the entire book was very well written and it was introductory and explanatory. I learned along with Merit what it is to live in Chicago a few months after the vampires revealed themselves to the world and it's pretty fascinating.
Merit also brought her personal issued from her former life into the equation so the story was even more colorful and full of surprises.
The readers get a glimpse of the reason behind the estrangement between Merit and her parents but we never got to know her first name so there is so much more we have to learn about her.
Chloe Neill also introduced us to a whole other level of bad-ass grandparenting in the face of Merit's Grandfather.
It was a very complex mix of feelings that I experienced while reading the book. I was laughing, I was pissed of... it was easy to mimic Merits reaction.
I loved everything about the book, I loved Merit, I loved Mallory, I definitely loved Jeff and Catcher. I want to see more of Ethan. He played his role of Master of the Cadogan house perfectly and was very interesting character, but I won't even start down the path of explaining you about him... I simply can't do him justice so if you're curious, go ahead and read the book. There is plenty of him going around..
I really love this book. I found it fascinating and I definitely am going to continue reading the series.
