For review

My thoughts
I have only read 3 Chicagoland books, but I did feel like it did not matter. This is after  24 years after those finished. Sure they talk about things from the past, but it is the present that matters.

Elisa is the daughter of two vampires. But vampires can not have children...Magical stuff happened and she was born, with something lurking in her soul. Ok so the thing inside of her was a secret and I found that silly. Her parents saved the city in 13 books, but she can not tell them this huge thing..ok. Instead she ran away to Paris (but hey who wouldn't run away to Paris!)

Now she is back with French vamps so that Europe can have peace, just like Chicago. But drama! Someone does not like that idea. Murder and mayhem ensured.

She meets her BFF again.
She meets her childhood nemesis, hunky wereprince Connor.
She meets this cool guy who she decides at once is perfect friend material.
And of course there are her parents (but to be fear, I only read 3 of their books so I did not get the feels) Others will def get all the feels.

I did like Elisa, and she was kick-ass, but the same time not. I am not saying every heroine has to be kickass, but they have to have a brain, and I felt she was saved way too often. All because she never stopped to think. Reckless is not cool. And it's not like oh she is young, other people that are young saves her ass. I hope she shapes up and does not have to be saved by men all the time. 

Conclusion:
I did enjoy the tale and I liked the baddie. But yes I hope Elisa grows a brain.

Narrator
Her vice sounded so familiar, but no, I have not listened to her before. It so bothered me. It felt like I had listened to many of her books before. But hey, that must be a good thing. If you are at ease with the narrator at once.

Cover
Cool

Blurb
In the first thrilling installment of Chloe Neill's spinoff to the New York Times best-selling Chicagoland Vampires series, a new vampire will find out just how deep blood ties run. As the only vampire child ever born, some believed Elisa Sullivan had all the luck. But the magic that helped bring her into the world left her with a dark secret. Shifter Connor Keene, the only son of North American Central Pack Apex Gabriel Keene, is the only one she trusts with it. But she's a vampire and the daughter of a Master and a Sentinel, and he's prince of the Pack and its future king. 

When the assassination of a diplomat brings old feuds to the fore again, Elisa and Connor must choose between love and family, between honor and obligation, before Chicago disappears forever.

  3. I only read the first books in the original series and I am trying to read this right now and not getting all the feels. I got tired of all the information dumping in the first portion of the book. It is finally getting better.....

  4. That drives me crazy too, when you think you recognize the voice, but can't place. I've listened to some narrators that read under different names.

  6. I just finished this book last night and agree with what you said. I don't get keeping the secret from her parents. I did like the book well enough. I only read the first book in the original series so I had almost no feels. Connor was the highlight of this book in my opinion.

    1. It did not make sense. They were close. They could have helped her.

  8. I think I should catch up with her other series (Devil's Isle, I think) before I got back to try her Chicagoland!

  9. I've been meaning to try the Chicagoland series at some point. Uh oh, the new heroine sounds like the kind that would annoy me. I'll definitely start with the older series first.

    1. I might think that yes sure this one was good, but her books might not be for me

  10. I'm onto book 6 of Chicagoland but I so want to read this spin-off already... Although chickie always needing to be saved would annoy me. Her mother rarely needed to be saved by men and I would have expected some of her badassery to have rubbed off.
