I have been a big fan of the Chicagoland Vampires series since it came out. Unfortunately, this book fell a little short for me.

*SPOILER ALERT*
The story seems to be, more or less, a repeat of what was previously done and the main character does not seem to be developing much. She is continuously making the same decisions and has the same inner turmoils, just with different men. It felt to me, like the possibility of Jonah as a lover came from left field and was just used to offset the previous attempts by another lover to win her affections from Ethan and create some drama and fodder for Merit's love life.

The book circles around what appeared to be quite obvious to me at the beginning and a lot of the interactions with other sups seemed to be page filler. It doesn't make sense why the water nyphs would destroy the water and it seemed to take a long time for the heroine to come to this conclusion. Repeatedly throughout the book, there are references made to sorcerers being the only ones who could have initiated the magic that caused the sky to bleed and the water to die, yet Merit takes the entire book to end with this, ultimately discovering it was Mallory.

I would have liked to have seen, at least SOME build up, to indicate Mallory had a dark side. From the beginning of the series, Mallory was always level-headed and kind. Out of the blue, she is embracing evil and nearly destroying the city? Merit claims repeatedly Mallory is like a close sister to her but doesn't put two and two together and see that there is something seriously wrong with her "best friend."

In the end, Ethan rises from the ashes, literally. Honestly, I have read a lot of paranormal type books with varying magical abilities but this one seemed to be a bit too much.

I love the first three novels of the Chicagoland Vampires. Then Hard bitten happens, and now, Drink Deep.

There are spoilers in this review. I'm sorry ahead of time. But look away if you don't want to know what happens.

This will be my shortest review on Amazon. I posted longer rants on Goodreads and my Book Blog about this novel. Suffice it to say that Drink Deep was an utter disappointment. At the end of Hard Bitten, Ethan get's a stake to the heart, and turns to dust. Dead. Gone.

Talk about a kick to the head. So then we are told to trust Ms. Neill. At this point in my life, trust has to be earned from authors. The yo yo back and forth from Merit and Ethan, doesn't lend itself to trust.

At any rate, I find myself still bitter apparently. Sorry about that.

Drink Deep had an interesting premise. One of the things I enjoy about Ms. Neill is her writing style. I like how she describes people and places. Drink Deep however was lacking in the emotional department.

After you kill a character, there needs to be GRIEF. We need to FEEL. The opening of the book starts TWO MONTHS AFTER Ethan dies. We are not Privy to one IOTA of Grief or sadness.

The end of Drink Deep, when you know Ethan is going to come back, should have been an emotional reunion between Ethan and Merit. We were robbed of this. It should have been emotional between Ethan and the Cadogan House Vampires. We were robbed of this. It should have been emotional between Malik and Ethan, as they were best friends. We were robbed of this. This was the most unemotional come back EVER.

I feel completely cheated.

I also hated how Mallory has taken the dark path.

*******NOTE: There are spoilers for previous books in this series, as well as spoilers for Drink Deep*********

The first three books of this series I loved and adored. I recommended them to many based on their snark and action appeal. But then Hard Bitten came along, and at the end, the vampire hero Ethan dies. Stake in the heart, turns to ashes. The end.

I did the whole - wait, what? Let me read that again. Seriously? I may have thrown the book across the room. I'm all for cliff hangers - I enjoy being miserable along with my friends. But this just didn't feel right. After 3 books, and most of 4, I didn't want the hero of the series to be dead. I actually thought by the end of book four Merit and Ethan would finally trust each other enough to be together. I wasn't only angry that the hero dies, but I was angry that we were still being dragged along in this series without some good solid romance. I was bitter and angry, and I remained bitter and angry as I started Drink Deep - did it skew my opinion of this book - maybe. Just putting that out there.

Now I assumed all along that Ethan would eventually come back. He has to, right? Right. I was more worried with the "how." HOW will Chloe Neill bring him back, and will it be plausible? I'll answer that in a minute. First let me set up this book.

Drink Deep starts two months after Hard Bitten ends. Right here is a problem for me because we miss all of Merit's mourning. Although sad, she is basically ready to get back to work. I think we needed to be a part of her intense mourning instead of just telling us she mourned.

Malik is now in charge of Cadogen House and has problems. The water in Lake Michigan has turned a dark, inky black and has stopped moving altogether.
