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.

The Heirs of Chicagoland series is here!   I am not sure I had any specific expectation. It was comfortable to be back in world of Chicagoland Vampires.  The setting is 20-odd years later. Elisa is the voice and our view to the world now.  I think you could read this without reading the other series. I’m OCD so I wouldn’t but the mentions of well-known characters are brief. A few jokes might go over your head as they are idiosyncrasies of those characters but the story itself is not affected, just the level of humor you might find here.

Elisa is young, a new adult, learning her life and place in the world. So is Connor Keene. We don’t get as much insight into Connor though. Wild Hunger is more of an adventure than a romance, which is typical in an urban fantasy series. There’s a good groundwork here for the future in this world. The characters like Lulu Bell, Miranda, Tanya, Riley Sixkiller and more are presented with more development hopefully to follow.

It was a bit odd to have Elisa involved in the investigation as Merit would have done in the past. The Ombudsman office has changed, although Chuck is alive but retired, we meet some of the new players. I’m not sure of them yet. So Elisa doesn’t have the familial connection plus Cadogan House agreed to stay out of investigations. She’s also been away at school and doesn’t know the players so it’s odd she was included so rapidly.

It’s a fun tale with quick updates on old friends and introductions of the new gang forming.  I’ll be looking forward to what is next.

About Chloe Neill

Chloe Neill is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Chicagoland Vampires and Dark Elite series.

She was born and raised in the South, but now makes her home in the Midwest–just close enough to Cadogan House and St. Sophia’s to keep an eye on things. When not transcribing Merit’s and Lily’s adventures, she bakes, works, and scours the Internet for good recipes and great graphic design. Chloe also maintains her sanity by spending time with her boys–her favorite landscape photographer/husband and their dogs, Baxter and Scout. (Both she and the photographer understand the dogs are in charge.)

I can't really remember any time when I wasn't reading.I LOVE books and what they give me.It's an opportunity to learn new things, see new places,live different emotions in a "safe" way.It lets me live in a new world.

I read all types of books but my favorites are urban fantasy and romantic suspense.I like some romance and some action / adventure / mystery in everything.I like sex in my books but please, only between TWO people.Intimate conversation is equally important to the sex in a book.It lets me see the characters.The other thing I enjoy is humor.

    I have read all of Chloe Neill’s work and loved them all, but Chicagoland Vampires are my favorites. Love Ethan and Merit! Thanks for the review! I’m really excited about the new series!

  2. I had planned to read this during my sick leave but it didn’t happen. I hope to get started with it very soon though. I am so happy to see that you liked it and I think I will be okay even though I only read the first Chicagoland Vampire book. I have read her Devil’s Isle series and have enjoyed it.

  3. My review posts tomorrow Anne. I love Neil’s Devil’s Isle series and attempted the first two or three audios of Chicagoland before I bailed. The female protagonist grated on my nerves. However, I read this and loved it! A lot of my friends said it was the narrator, so I may go back and revisit the Chicagoland series on eBook.

    I absolutely love the Chicagoland Vampires and was so sad when it ended. I am excited to see Merit and Ethan from their child’s perspective. I am also curious about how she is viewed by other vampires and the Red Guard.
