Description:  Turned into a vampire against her will, twenty-eight-year-old Merit found her way into the dark circle of Chicago’s vampire underground, where she learned there was more to supernaturals than met the eye—and more supernaturals than the public ever imagined.And not all the secrets she learned were for sharing—among humans or inhumans. Now Merit is on the hunt, charging across the stark American Midwest, tailing a rogue supernatural intent on stealing an ancient artifact that could unleash catastrophic evil on the world. But Merit is also the prey. An enemy of Chicagoland is hunting her, and he’ll stop at nothing to get the book for himself. No mercy allowed.

                                                        No rules apply. No lives spared. The race is on.

I've been dying to get my hands on this book since the end of Drink Deep with Ethan coming back from the dead. After all Merit has gone through, she deserved some much need alone time with him. But as you can imagine the universe isn't in her favor. Instead Merit and Ethan are off chasing after Mallory whose as a deathly infatuation with dark magic. 

The Mallory storyline unfolded very quickly, and honestly I was kind of disappointed. I was sure that it would be the main plot of the story. It was gearing up to be a big showdown, and then pretty much nothing. I was also a little disappointed in the lack of Catcher in this book. I simply adore him.  And not much on Jonah or the Red Guard in this book, but I'm sure this would be an issue for future books.

We do finally learn what Seth Tate is. Very interesting plot twist. And the best part of the book? Lots of Ethan. Once again he tried to halt his relationship with Merit. We see Merit as a new woman. She has grown into her powers and has finally embraced her vampire side. And she this Merit won't sit back and let Ethan decide when they are off or on.

With all the supernatural crisis going on in the city, the Cadogen House has a even much bigger problem. The GP has decided to cast a vote to decide if Cadogen House should remain within the GP. But the vampires decide to take ahold of their fate before it's decided for them. 

This book has reminded me why I fell in love with Merit and Ethan. Not to mention makes me want to visit Chicago, and taste all the food that Merit is in love with. I can't wait to read what else is store for our favorite vamps. 

Rating: 4/5
