In the second pulse-pounding novel in the USA Today bestselling Heirs of Chicagoland series, vampire Elisa Sullivan gets drawn into the shifting sands of Pack politics.
Vampires were made, not born—until Elisa Sullivan came along. As the only vampire child in existence, she grew up with a heavy legacy, and tried to flee her past. Then circumstances drew her back to Chicago, and she stayed to keep it safe. With shifter Connor Keene, the only son of Pack Apex Gabriel Keene, at her side, she faced down a supernatural evil that threatened to destroy Chicago forever.
After the dust from the attack has settled, Elisa is surprised when Connor invites her to a usually private Pack event in the north woods of Minnesota, and by the warm welcome she receives from some of Connor’s family, even though she’s a vampire. But the peace doesn’t last. The shifters tell tales of a monster in the woods, and when the celebration is marred by death, Elisa and Connor find themselves in the middle of a struggle for control that forces Elisa to face her true self—fangs and all.
I received a free copy from the publisher via Netgalley and chose to leave a voluntary review. Thank you!*
I was really looking forward to this book, as I liked the first book a lot.
This book started out pretty good and strong but at the 30-40% mark it just went downhill and had a hard time ti recover from that.
One I thought as we leaping Chicago we get a little more action on the road and we do get some, but we also get some long and a bit boring politics. Some parts are just a bit too drawn out. We do leanr a bit more about the pack and not only the ones we know but also some elders and rules from other packs, which was sort of interesting and I liked that part.
We also meet some new people and I must say Alexei, is one of my new favs ….. So far. Of course we see some familiar faces and its aslways good to see Ethan and Mer again, and see little has changed with them lol .
I really like Connor and Elisa, I like them even more. Of course we get some pretty funny banter between them which I loved … for the most part. Except there were a few times I was annoyed how they had to call or point out that one is a vampire and one is a wolf…… that happened way to many times for my liking and got old. Though I have to say that I like Connor more than I ever liked Ethan. I did not start liking Ethan till the end of the series lol .
I don’t want to spoil anything so I just be very vague but some things happened in the book , that got handled not every well for me, that just sort of ruined a lot of it .
Overall. It started out good, then things got wonky and never really recovered. I most likely will still pick up the next book in the series to see how things turn out. But this book was just okay for me and could have been a bit better.
I rate it 3 ★
