Waiting on Wednesday is a feature hosted by Breaking The Spine. This is my anticipated book of the week!
In the first thrilling installment of Chloe Neill’s spinoff to the New York Times bestselling Chicagoland Vampires series, a new vampire will find out just how deep blood ties run.
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.
I am a big fan of Chloe Neill’s Chicagoland Vampires series so I feel like the obvious next step is to dig into the Heirs of Chicagoland series. There are doubts for me. In a way, I’m nervous that this is YA. Not to shoot YA down, I’ve just never connected with it. The main characters being children of my favorite CV series makes me wonder if I will feel that way about this series. However, in the Midnight Breed series, we were able to jump ahead 20 years and turn to the children of the main characters and it didn’t bother me too terribly much so it is possible this will be the same.
I can’t wait to see how Ethan and Merit are as parents and how kick ass their daughter turns out to be. I’m also excited that her friend is the son of Gabriel Keene. There was hints of these two in the CV series, and I’m curious to see how that turns out. Whether there will be a romance in the making between our two main characters or if they are strictly friends.
It will also be interesting to see just how much a role the older characters play in this book. Whether we’ll see a lot of the Ombuddies or the security team at Cadogan House. I can’t wait to find out.
Wild Hunger releases August 14, 2018 so be sure to grab your preorder. I’m truly curious as to how I’m going to connect with this series!
