Merit, Sentinel of Chicago's Cadogan House, is pregnant. She's ready to meet her daughter, but also very excited about the possibility of seeing her feet again. But trouble always seems to find her...
Ethan and Merit have been married for eight months, and they're preparing for life-with-baby. Ethan's battling his overprotectiveness, while Merit's hoping she can figure out how to be a loving parent given her family's chilliness.
While out on an evening walk, Merit stops to help a human in need, only to find herself under attack. A sociopath with a debt figures pregnant Merit is an easy target--and Cadogan House would pay handsomely for her return...

I was excited that we were going to get at least a small glimpse back into the life of Merit and Ethan. Especially some of Merit being pregnant. We also get some of Margot and Jonah and their relationship.
This novella was pretty short but gave us the opportunity to see Merit in a different light. She’s pregnant and the victim of a crime that she does not solve herself. She plays more in the background in Slaying it which really is a good thing. We see more of Margot and Jonah so I think maybe we’re setting them up for a romance that will move over into the Chicagoland Heirs series.
I really enjoyed getting to know Margot because in my mind she was different. I had a different idea of her. Now I see her as the young, attractive vampire she is. She goes through some trials in Slaying It and it’s kind of nice to see someone else’s issues take a front seat.
Slaying It was a nice glimpse into the Chicagoland world and the epilogue was hilarious. I am used to reading this series in ebook but I listened to Slaying it. I wasn’t blown away by the performance but it was satisfactory.
Being such a big fan of this series, I couldn’t NOT read this novella. I love the characters in this world and look forward to the glimpses we’ll get in Wild Hunger.
