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.

    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.

    Great review.. Thank you for the chance 🙂
    Have read the Chicagoland Vampire series.. love Merit,Ethan & the others at Cadogan House .. loved Slaying It,& so ready for the next adventure with Elisa & Connor

  8. 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.

  9. 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.
