4.5 stars to Twice Bitten from RT Book Reviews!

The first official Twice Bitten review from RT Book Reviews (whose convention I hope to attend next year!):

TWICE BITTEN by Chloe Neill

Genre: Urban Fantasy, Paranormal/Urban Fantasy

RT Rating: 4.5 stars

Vampires and shapeshifters abound in this next installment of Neillโ€™s
addictive Chicagoland Vampires series. Emotional tension runs high in this book,
which has feisty newbie vampire Merit sorting out her relationships. Neill
continues to hit the sweet spot with her blend of high-stakes drama, romantic
entanglements and a touch of humor. The foreshadowing of trouble to come is
certain to whet readersโ€™ appetites for more in this entertaining series!

With vampires outed to humans, the shapeshifters are concerned they
will be next. Gabriel Keene, Apex of the North American Central shifters, has
called for a convocation of the packs to decide what their future holds. Despite
their uneasy history with vampires, Gabriel has requested that Merit and master
vampire Ethan attend as added security. Word is that someone is gunning for
Gabriel, which means Merit is in for a tough assignment. And having Ethan in
such close proximity is proving a bit distracting, as Merit tries to sort out
her feelings for the arrogant โ€” and all too attractive โ€” vampire. (NAL, Jul.,
368 pp., $15.00)

Neill’s briskly paced third Chicagoland Vampires paranormal romance (after
2009’s Friday Night Bites) makes new readers comfortable with a thorough recap
before diving into swiftly developing events that will satisfy returning fans.
In the two months since graduate student Merit was involuntarily turned into the
Cadogan House Sentinel by master vampire Ethan Sullivan, she’s become part of
the vampires’ recent emergence into the public eye, battled another master
vampire, suffered several emotional upheavals, and honed her fighting skills.
Now she’s assigned to guard the leader of North America’s shape-shifters as the
packs gather in Chicago to discuss the future of their often strained
relationship with vampires. Merit’s frequently snarky voice and amusing
observations about the occasional absurdities of her situation combine with the
magic of Neill’s world in a refreshing take on urban fantasy. (July)

Thanks, PW reviewer!

  • Congrats! I can't wait to read it. Glad to see Ethan won't be at the house while Merit is off with the shifters. I'd miss all the snarking opportunities!

  • oooo, Ethan goes along with her? Every single titbit is most welcome! Even if it is a tiny one!

  • Congrats and yay on the kindle news. Looking forward to my date with TB ๐Ÿ™‚
