HOUSE RULES — The first chapter

by Chloe Neill on 31 October 2012

And away we go. The very first tidbit of HOUSE RULES, the seventh Chicagoland Vampires novel, is below. Click on the link below the snippet to read more. :)

It was like a scene from a divorce: belongings divided into piles; books labeled with one owner’s name or the other; and everyone emotionally exhausted.

But in this case, there was no breakup. Not of the human variety, anyway. This was more of a secession. A declaration of independence.

It was a rebellion, and the golden-haired vampire next to me was leading the charge. Ethan Sullivan, the unofficial co-Master of Chicago’s Cadogan House, and my boyfriend.

No cliffhanger for the end of Chapter 1? Boo.

So excited, can’t wait. I do hope everything works out for Mallory and Merit. I feel like she was there for Merit at the beginning and some bad things happened to her. Plus I think they compliment each other. Here is hoping.

Love it!!! I can’t wait till this book comes out in February but this helps until then. It’s already on my wish list and just counting down the days till it comes out. I hope Mallory and Catcher get back together and she keeps on her path to being back on the side of good. I do love the interaction between Merit and Ethan, they so great together!!!
