A vampire never gets old. But neither do his enemies. When a figure from Ethan's dark past makes a splashy debut in Chicago, Merit and her Master don't know whether he's friend or foe. But they'll have to figure out soon, because trouble is brewing in the Windy City.

At an exclusive society soiree attended by the upper echelons of the human and supernatural worlds, Merit and Ethan barely stop the assassination of a guest. When the target turns out to be a shady businessman with a criminal edge, Merit suspects a human vendetta. But the assassins have fangs....

The connections to Chicago's Houses go deeper than Merit knows, and even one wrong move could be her last....
My Review:
Overall: 4.25
Performance: 4.5
Story: 4.25

One character made this story...Balthazar...wow, talk about a great and really, really creepy bad guy. It made for a great and really suspense-filled read. I was on pins and needles almost all the way through the entire story, not knowing what might happen next. 

As always, this is another great installment to the series. I love how the author has threaded all the various story lines through the stories and we're finally getting some closure on some of those...Mallory and Catcher...LOVE them. There were also some really poignant moments between Morgan and Merit. I feel bad for the guy. He's definitely had a raw deal all the way around...even though he can be a jerk at moments. 

And then there's Ethan and Merit. I felt like their love was tested more in this book...which again helped in all that suspense. I continue to love them together and am going to be so sad when this whole series ends (did I read right? #13 is the last? *sob*).

This has been a fantastic urban fantasy series. There's enough romance to satisfy this romance genre girl, but the story remains focused on Merit and the strife in her life. I adore this series!!
