The Good, The Bad, and The Undead by Kim Harrison

So, I kind of forgot my log in info for this for a while.

Back now though, so it's all good.

I think I'm going to use this as a book blog, because reading is pretty much all I've been doing recently, after all.

First things first - I need a new layout. Once that's done, I'll add some updates on books I've read/am reading, etc.

Some Girls Bite;

So, I just finished reading Some Girls Bite by Chloe Neill.
Have to say, it fairly rocks.
One of the best vampire books I've read recently, which is saying something.

The stories deal with Merit, her acclimation to a new life of vampirism, and all the chaos that comes with it, including learning her grandfather never truly retired, that Chicagoland is full of the Supernatural, and her developing feelings for the master vampire who saved her life.

They killed me. They healed me. They changed me.

Sure, the life of a graduate student wasn't exactly glamorous, but it was mine. I was doing fine until Chicago's vampires announced their existence to the world-and then a rogue vampire attacked me. But he only got a sip before he was scared away by another bloodsucker... and this one decided the best way to save my life was to make me the walking undead.

Turns out my savior was the master vampire of Cadogan House. Now I've traded sweating over my thesis for learning to fit in at a Hyde Park mansion full of vamps loyal to Ethan "Lord o' the Manor" Sullivan. Of course, as a tall, green-eyed, four hundred year old vampire, he has centuries' worth of charm, but unfortunately he expects my gratitude-and servitude. Right...

But my burgeoning powers (all of a sudden, I'm surprisingly handy with some serious weaponry), an inconvenient sunlight allergy, and Ethan's attitude are the least of my concerns. Someone's still out to get me. Is it the rogue vampire who bit me? A vamp from a rival House? An angry mob bearing torches?

My initiation into Chicago's nightlife may be the first skirmish in a war-and there will be blood...


I can't wait for the next one in the Chicagoland Vampire series.

Only have to wait until October.
