Seventh in the New York Times bestselling series about "wonderfully compelling reluctant vampire heroine"* Merit and the paranormal Chicago underworld.

In a city full of vampires, trouble never sleeps.

At age twenty-seven, Merit became a sword-wielding vampire. Since then, she's become the protector of her House, watched Chicago nearly burn to the ground, and seen her Master fall and rise. Now she'll see her mettle--and her metal--tested like never before.

It starts when two Rogues vanish without a trace. Someone is targeting Chicago's vampires, and anyone could be next. With their House in peril, Merit and her Master, Ethan Sullivan, must race to stop the disappearances. But as they untangle a web of secret alliances and ancient evils, they realize their foe is more familiar, and more powerful, than they could have ever imagined.

I loved that this book did focus quite a bit on Ethan and Merit's relationship as well as all of the drama that the house goes through. I especially enjoyed Ethan taking on Darius and the GP. The Cadogan House is going through a lot of changes because of the GP and they show the GP what they are made of. Merit does what she has to do for the good of the house and her relationship with Ethan. Looking forward to the next book in this series.

Don't get me wrong, the series is good, but maybe I'm getting series fatigue. When the girl's favourite guy is ressurected from the dead, the gloss and the cyncism increases. Waiting for the dream team to be connected again so my cynical side can be fully validated. The interplay between the houses, and the ruling hierarchy was engaging, but hoping the "personal" side of vampire life moves away from the standard plot lines, eh?

Much better than the last book. Glad to see Merit and her gang are back on track doing what they do best. Perhaps I’m reading too much into this (or I’ve been oblivious to something that’s been right under my nose), but for the first time I saw a direct correlation between how Chicago treats vampires and how Germany treated the Jews at the beginning of WWII. I wonder if Neill is keeping this in the back of her mind and we will be seeing more similarities in future books.
