Review Copy Source: Publisher
Merit has been a vampire for only a short while, but she’s already seen a lifetime’s worth of trouble. She and her Master, centuries-old Ethan Sullivan, have risked their lives time and again to save the city they love. But not all of Chicago is loving them back.
Anti-vampire riots are erupting all over town, striking vampires where it hurts the most. A splinter group armed with Molotov cocktails and deep-seated hate is intent on clearing the fanged from the Windy City come hell or high water.
Merit and her allies rush to figure out who’s behind the attacks, who will be targeted next, and whether there’s any way to stop the wanton destruction. The battle for Chicago is just beginning, and Merit is running out of time.
Merit is BACK! Ahh I love this series. The Cadogan House is doing well for themselves but the GP still makes moves against them. Their allies have some tough choices in BITING BAD but that does not keep Cadogan from coming to their rescue when they are attacked. I think it is great that even with the GP continuously coming down on them they always seem to come out on top!
I love every little think about Merit and Ethan's relationship. They try really hard to be a normal couple and do pull it off every once in a while but they truly have come a long way from who they were in book 1. It is so refreshing getting thorough a book without Ethan pushing Merit away. On another thought, am I the only one who keeps waiting for Merit to get pregnant? I just KNOW it has to happen at some point, right?
I enjoyed watching Merit and Mallory move closer together as friends. Their relationship will never be the same but I think they are making great progress. I think it is great that Merit and Jonah are still great Red Guard partners. They talk easily with each other and they work great together.
The action as usual is at every turn and the characters keep you coming back for more. I thought the character growth in BITING BAD was great and I look forward to seeing where everything takes the series next. We end on another cliffhanger, what else? February can not come soon enough. Enjoyed every minute of book 8.
I gave it 5/5 stars
