“Waiting On” Wednesday
A weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating. This is my first time participating, so I’ll jump in with a book I’ve been waiting to read for months.
Biting Bad by Chloe Neill
Release date: August 6, 2013
Merit has been a vampire for only a short while, but she’s already seen a lifetime’s worth of trouble. She and her Master, centuries-old Ethan Sullivan, have risked their lives time and again to save the city they love. But not all of Chicago is loving them back.
Anti-vampire riots are erupting all over town, striking vampires where it hurts the most. A splinter group armed with Molotov cocktails and deep-seated hate is intent on clearing the fanged from the Windy City come hell or high water.
Merit and her allies rush to figure out who’s behind the attacks, who will be targeted next, and whether there’s any way to stop the wanton destruction. The battle for Chicago is just beginning, and Merit is running out of time.
I love the way Ethan and Merit have evolved since the story began and I can’t wait to see what else they’re capable of. Plus, Neill’s world-building is fantastic, and I enjoy the pieces clicking into place as I realize things she hinted at in previous books are coming full circle.
