They killed me. They healed me. They changed me. Sure, the life of a graduate student wasn't exactly glamorous, but it was mine. I was doing fine until Chicago's vampires announced their existence to the world-and then a rogue vampire attacked me. But he only got a sip before he was scared away by another bloodsucker...and this one decided that the best way to save my life was to make me the walking undead. Turns out my savior was the master vampire of Cadogan House. Now I've traded sweating over my thesis for learning to fit in at a Hyde Park mansion full of vamps loyal to Ethan "Lord o' the Manor" Sullivan. Of course, as a tall, green-eyed, four-hundred-year-old vampire, he has centuries' worth of charm, but unfortunately he expects my gratitude-and servitude. Right. But my burgeoning powers (all of a sudden, I'm surprisingly handy with some serious weaponry), an inconvenient sunlight allergy, and Ethan's attitude are the least of my concerns. Someone's still out to get me. Is it the rogue vampire who bit me? A vamp from a rival House? An angry mob bearing torches? My initiation into Chicago's nightlife may be the first skirmish in a war-and there will be blood.

Talk about Some Girls Bite: A Chicagoland Vampires Novel (Chicagoland Vampires Series)

I should have known that any protagonist who claims on the first page to be the "best" vampire after having been created days earlier would be a dud. (I stopped reading on page 247. I should have stopped sooner. Or never bought it.).

Merit, the protagonist, is too stupid to live. Or in this case, too stupid to live and be reborn as a vampire. Her age is around 28 and she was a graduate student but acts like she's half that age. She doesn't act like an adult at all, instead pouting that she was made a vampire "against her will" when the other option was her death. So instead of being a little grateful she acts like a teenager throughout the entire book (at least to the part I read). And the amazing part is, for the most part, everyone puts up with it!

The only thing special about Merit is the fact that she has all these amazing powers after being reborn...which she takes for granted and doesn't learn how to wield. I have a very, very hard time believing (and another downfall of this book is the inability for the reader to suspend disbelief/reality and hop in the book. I can do this with the best of them but the only thing I wanted to do was slap Merit with said book) that a woman of Merit's mediocre caliber would be worthy of such powers.

The whole book is a walking vampire/paranormal/UF/fantasy cliche, complete with doormat best friend who happens to find out that she's a witch with the highest level of powers! What a neat coincidence!

I hated Merit and I couldn't feel a thing for any of the other characters. There was supposedly a mystery happening, connected to the way in which Merit was turned, but instead of focusing on that and the actual victims of the attacker, Merit complains about how her life has changed and how it's not fair to her and attacking the people who saved her rather than finding the person/vampire at fault. Woe is me, blah blah blah.

All in all, I can't believe I wasted time and money on this book. There are other books out there better than this (want a REAL kicka** heroine? Check out the Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews). I won't continue the series and I will probably avoid any and all of Ms Neill's books in the future.
SPOILER ALERT. The writing is solid. Not like many of the indie authors who don't worry about grammer and editing. The first half of book one was promising. However, after reading all the books in the series through 2015, I'm still not attached to any of the characters. There is no emotional investment for me. I'm from the burbs, and while there are some basic Chicago details such as the Cubs, there's sooo much more to the city and suburbs that could be included. The woman-child protagonist has turned into an odd dichotomy. A ballerina with a katana, who loves baseballs - signed of course, $10 gourmet chocolate bars, and crap tv vs. the miracle vampire who will be able to breed, (why and who cares) and wears $10k dresses her boss/boyfriend selects and purchases for her to wear to high class events. Shallow, boring, and the plots are going nowhere. Kind of like Heroes, I kept waiting for a cohesive storyline, but it never formed. Typically try to read an entire series, but I'm finally calling it quits.
I've rated worse books the same, I will admit. Why? Because I paid $7.99 for this book, and when I pay over $5 for reading material, it better be sock knocking off good.
Overall the story concept is not bad, entertaining at least. But I find the tension and characters a bit flat for my liking.
Another issue that irks me, really irks me, is the repeated use of certain words that drive me to distraction. "Be that as it may" and "but for" are fine, but when every character uses the same colloquial manner of speaking, many, many, many times, it's annoying. These are just two examples of many. At times it's pretentious and it's work to immerse myself in the reading. That's when you know there are problems.
Errors in grammar or simply missing a letter on a word. Unacceptable in an $8 book. There are not a LOT of them, but like I said, if I'm paying that amount of money you aren't going to get any slack from me, and be that as it may (knowing smirk) I will not be investing any more of my dollars into this series. I see that some of the latter books are upwards of $12? I pay that kind of money only for those of my very favorite authors that have proven they are exemplary in grammar, plot development, romantic tension and character development. I do not foresee this series living up to my VERY high expectations for the money.
If these books were $1.99 to $3.99, I think we'd have something more to discuss here and I would happily keep reading. For the same amount of money, actually probably less, you can read a far superior series which I will not name because that would be tacky. Cough Kate Daniels cough.
Moving along.

I had issues with the first book, found the second book a little better, but this book makes me question my sanity in continuing forward with this series.

I find that Ms. Neill will sacrifice the characters that she's built in order to shoehorn in some snappy, snarky, pop-culture laden dialogue. Sometimes Ethan is formal and 'old world' in his manner of speech and other times he is just as quick witted and sarcastic as Merit and crew. Sometimes Merit is a "literature geek" (of which I have yet to see actual evidence) and sometimes not. For example, after Lindsay uses the phrase "the beast with two backs", Merit is shocked speechless and has "no words". If Merit were truly a "literature geek", she would recognize the phrase because it originates in Shakespeare's Othello.

Merit rebelled from her overbearing father and did her own thing, living with Mallory, working on her dissertation. Now she lives with someone equally as overbearing and when the opportunity to join the Red Guard comes along, even after Ethan's epic fail, she refuses. This is utterly incongruous with the Merit we were told about before the timeline of the books starts. She's unwilling to be her father's doormat but completely fine with being Ethan's. I don't get it, and I think I'm done with this series.
