BOOK 3: Twice Bitten
Hard Bitten description:
Times are hard for newly minted vampire Merit. Ever since shapeshifters announced their presence to the world, humans have been rallying against supernaturals—and they’re camping outside of Cadogan House with protest signs that could turn to pitchforks at any moment. Inside its doors, things between Merit and her Master, green-eyed heartbreaker Ethan Sullivan, are tense. But then the mayor of Chicago calls Merit and Ethan to a clandestine meeting and tells them about a violent vamp attack that has left three women missing. His message is simple: get your House in order. Or else.
Merit needs to get to the bottom of this crime, but it doesn’t help that she can’t tell who’s on her side. So she secretly calls in a favor from someone who’s tall, dark, and part of an underground vamp group that may have some deep intel on the attack. Merit soon finds herself in the heady, dark heart of Chicago’s supernatural society—a world full of vampires who seem to be ready to fulfill the protesting human’s worst fears, and a place where she’ll learn that you can’t be a vampire without getting a little blood on your hands.
I’ll admit that the lower score is due mostly to the upsetting ending… while it isn’t necessarily a bad ending or an unrealistic ending… it’s a “why must you do this to me” sort of ending… like when the author just can’t let anything go even the slightest bit smoothly for the main character… always has to throw in a huge and frustrating loop… I mean there better be some future amazing miracles getting worked later on… other than that the rest of the book is actually really good and the characters are developing in interesting and ways and you can’t help but feel for them and hope for them which is a good book… the developments in who is behind all the evil going down in the town and how it all plays out is exciting… definitely keep you flipping pages late into the night… though once more I feel unsure of how much I want to be reaching for the next book… at least not for a little while…
