Merit is one of Chicago's most skilled vampire warriors; these days, she doesn't scare easily. But she and Master vampire Ethan have made a new and powerful enemy, and he won't give up until he owns the Windy City.
With his last plan thwarted, he's more determined than ever to watch Cadogan burn. Ethan has put the House's vampires on high alert, but their enemy will stop at nothing, including pitting vampire against vampire...
In this deadly game of cat-and-mouse, the stakes are life or death—and winning might mean sacrificing everything.
I am actually really happy with the progression of intimate and family dynamic relationships. I'm happy with the rate of development (if that's the right word?) as far as how Merit has handled coping with her new life and what she has become.
I have a lot of respect for how Merit sort of deals or accepts the way certain family members are even though its not all hearts and flowers. I believe it makes it more realistic that family isn't always perfect because that's the way it is in real life.
I really liked Ethan. He's embraced changing some of his faultier personality traits but its not flip a switch and its build a boyfriend perfection over night. He still has work to do with his development and how he handles himself. He's still imperfect but I think that's what makes him so great.
In the end its all the imperfection in everyone that really made me love this installment.
