Merit and the supernaturals of Chicago must deal with the sorceress that previously got away on them. She is back and has cooked up a huge plan to retaliate against the city after she lost everything she had worked so hard for. Honestly, I still wasn’t completely 100% on her end game. Did she want to rule the city? What exactly did she want from everyone? But her plan gets way out of her control and Chicago ends up trying to clean up her mess. As always, we get some great adventure with the gang as they fight to save the city. Hopefully this time proving to the citizens of Chicago that all the bad that happens in Chicago is not the fault of the vampires.
We see Merit go through a few phases in this book. She is her brave self, but we see vulnerability to her as well. I love that she was able to share that with Ethan and they work through things as a team. They have really developed a great relationship.
Blade Bound wraps up this era of the Chicagoland Vampires very nicely. We had things we needed to tie up, like the wedding, a loose sorceress and a prophecy, plus whatever new baddies showed up in this book. I think all of those things were dealt with nicely and we have a good, clean finish to Merit & Ethan’s tale. I’ll be watching closely for more info on the spin off to see if it is something I’m going to dive into. I’m guessing it will, if it gives me the chance to see one of my favorite couples again.
Chicagoland Vampires was a great series for me. It was full of fun, snark, action and adventure. I’m sad to see it end, but am completely satisfied with how it ended. It was sigh-worthy with a tear of happiness or two.
I received this book in exchange for an honest review from the publisher.
The night before the wedding Merit surprises a vampire in Ethan's office who seems to be mentally ill. He is frantic because he is hearing voices. The next day when Merit and Ethan are taking wedding pictures they come upon a riot where humans hearing voices are fighting.
Something is going on in Chicago. Both Gabriel and Mallory have has a sense of unease. It shouldn't be Sorcha since the wizards have put up wards that should trigger if she comes back to Chicago. But next the weather starts getting colder. While snow in August isn't impossible, the temperature and the amount of snow, especially since it is falling from a clear sky, make it clear that something magical is happening.
The center of the magical disturbance is traced to Sorcha's Towerline building. Ethan and Merit break in and discover Sorcha's workroom and manage to gather some of her notes before needing to leave ahead of guards. Mallory and Catcher manage to decipher the cryptic notes which show that Sorcha is building a magical construct to help her get revenge on Chicago, Merit and Mallory.
This story was action-packed and filled with new dangers for Merit and Ethan. Merit has her courage tested. She and Ethan are still trying to decide what they feel about the prophecy that they will have the first vampire child. Merit is very concerned for that future child's safety.
This was a great conclusion to an excellent series. I look forward to seeing where Neill takes the spinoff series which will begin in 2018.
I hate endings, and this last book by Chloe Neill of her Chicagoland Vampire series is no different. Yes, the book is a completion but not having a future Merit adventure to read makes me sad. In this book a little more than a year has passed for Neill's Chicago Vampires since the series started, but for me the conclusions of the series has been not quiet a decade of being in Vampire Merit's world; which is full of vampires and other supernatural creatures. I put off reading and reviewing this book for several months. I finally relented and decided to 'Listen' to the book instead of reading to put a distance between me and the last book. Yes I added degrees of separations to try to lessen the pain of the conclusion of one of my favorite series. Neill writes some of the best urban fantasy in during the run of this series, and the urban setting of Chicago set this book up as the premiere vampire series of the last decade. The book is a good bye and the plot is not as mysterious as the previous books in the series, as this book was an extension of the last book in the series, and anticlimactic as a series conclusion. This book isn't the best of the series, but Neill's quiet good is better than most authors best effort.
