A young heiress's initiation into the dark society of the Chicagoland Vampires continues...
Ten months after vampires revealed their existence to the mortals of Chicago, they're enjoying a celebrity status reserved for the Hollywood elite. But once the public learns about the Raves - mass feeding parties where vampires round up humans like cattle and drink themselves silly - the citizens might start sharpening their stakes.
Cadogan House Master, vampire Ethan Sullivan, wants Merit, the House's newest Novitiate, to reconnect with her upper-class family and work with the city's other supernaturals to keep the more unsavory aspects of the vampire lifestyle out of the media. But someone doesn't want peace between humans and vampires - someone with an ancient grudge...
Chloe Neill was born and raised in the South, but now makes her home in the Midwest. She is the author of the Chicagoland Vampire series, including Biting Bad, House Rules, and Biting Cold. When not transcribing Merit's adventures, she bakes, works, and scours the Internet for good recipes and great graphic design. Chloe also maintains her sanity by spending time with her boys, her photographer husband and their dogs, Baxter and Scout.
