Some Girls Bite/Chicagoland Vampires Book 1

Before I get to what I think about the opening book to Chloe Neill's Chicagoland Vampire series, here is the synopsis:


Sure, the life of a graduate student wasn’t exactly glamorous, but it was Merit’s. She was doing fine until a rogue vampire attacked her. But he only got a sip before he was scared away by another bloodsucker—and this one decided the best way to save her life was to make her the walking undead.

Turns out her savior was the master vampire of Cadogan House. Now she’s traded sweating over her thesis for learning to fit in at a Hyde Park mansion full of vamps loyal to Ethan “Lord o’ the Manor” Sullivan. Of course, as a tall, green-eyed, four-hundred- year-old vampire, he has centuries’ worth of charm, but unfortunately he expects her gratitude— and servitude. But an inconvenient sunlight allergy and Ethan’s attitude are the least of her concerns. Someone’s still out to get her. Her initiation into Chicago’s nightlife may be the first skirmish in a war—and there will be blood.

My Take
4 Stars

I don't like to do spoilers, so I am going to try to stay away from giving any in depth details about the book.

In the setting of this book, Vampires have come forth and announced their existence and belong (except for the rogues) to one of twelve "houses" under the care of the house's master vampire.
I think this is a great opening book to the Chicagoland Vampire series. Merit, the book's main character, is dealing with the transition from college student to vampire after she's attacked on campus by a rogue vampire and changed/saved by Ethan Sullivan (Master of Cadogan House).

As a new vampire, Merit is proving to be an exceptional and a great asset to Ethan's house. However, Merit finds herself drawn to Master Vampire Ethan, but is also suspicious of him at the same time. She is targeted by an unknown source, and finds herself having to come to terms with what she is and having to decide if swearing her alligence to Ethan will help keep her alive.

This book definately made me want to crack open the next book in the series (Friday Night Bites) and keep reading! I felt that Merit was a well written character I could connect with, and the supporting characters are interesting and fit in well within the storyline.
