While Merit didn’t choose to become a vampire or Sentinel of Cadogan House, she vowed to fight for her House and its Master, and she’s managed to forge strong alliances with powerful supernaturals across Chicago. But even though Merit has had wild adventures, this may be her deadliest yet...
A killer is stalking Chicago, preying on humans and leaving his victims with magical souvenirs. The CPD hasn’t been able to track the assailant, and as the body count rises, the city is running out of options. Vampires and humans aren’t on great terms, but murder makes for strange bedfellows. Can Merit find the killer before she becomes a target?
Ponytailed Avenger Merit is back in Neill’s tenth, and still fresh, installment of the best selling Chicagoland Vampire series. Neill kicks that action into high speed at the get go as Merit becomes embroiled in a series of events that challenge her physically and emotionally. Although we all love Cadogan House’s Master, Ethan Sullivan, he continues to run Merit through an emotional obstacle course. Every time Merit gets closer to Ethan, something manages to push her back a step. This time it is Ethan’s past. When you are nearly 400 years old, it is impossible not to have a past. Ethan has met his match in stubborn in Merit who refuses to be pushed away again. She has, however, grown enough to let him figure things out for himself.
