Blurb

First in a brand new series about a Chicago graduate student's introduction into a society of vampires. Sure, the life of a graduate student wasn't exactly glamorous, but it was Merit's. She was doing fine until a rogue vampire attacked her. But he only got a sip before he was scared away by another bloodsucker--and this one decided the best way to save her life was to make her the walking undead. Turns out her saviour was the master vampire of Cadogan House. Now she's traded sweating over her 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 her gratitude--and servitude. But an inconvenient sunlight allergy and Ethan's attitude are the least of her concerns. Someone's still out to get her. Her initiation into Chicago's night-life may be the first skirmish in a war--and there will be blood.

My view.

This has to be one of the most exciting books to come out in a long time.
It grabs you from page one and never lets you go.
Merit is a Sassy outspoken female and the fun and games has just begun. From the day of her turning, she will not let that stop her from being herself.
In this first installment as Merit is finding out what her life now entails and the adventure she is soon starting is a roller coaster ride of thrills and excitement, the lows and highs are part of a story that is a joy to read.
The undertones of pride and prejudice is funny and being a story most of us adore, adds real flavour to the book.
This Author is a RARE find, she finishes the story and doesn't leave you hanging like all the other Authors out there.

Twice Bitten Book 3 is a brilliant (as is the whole series), thoughtfully written exciting urban fantasy, yes there's vampires, yes theres werewolves, feisty heroine vampire love interest etc etc but this IS different.

Merit is a beautifully crafted character (my favourite female protagonist this year), C.Ns world building & surrounding characters are delightfully individual.
The Supernatural politics, history, protagonists & inter-relationships explained without effort & interwoven ingeniously with characters & storyline that just sucks you in & carries the mind away. You live breathe & see the world.

I very nearly did not start to read this series as I thought from the cover of the first book it was just another teenage angst vampire drama.
It's for all Urban fantasy fans, I can't believe I had flipped this one off for so long because of the cover.

I strongly suggest you read Some Girls Bite & Friday Night Bites first.

Unreservedly give whole series a 5 star rating

What I really enjoy about this series:

Merit does not choose to be a vampire but she lives with the changes made in her life and adjusts with as much dignity as she can.
She deals intelligently and confidently at all times. She does not stupidly talk out of her ass. *cough* Rose, Vampire Academy*cough*
It's actually quite refreshing to read a character so mature and who holds herself up with dignity.

I enjoy Ethan's character because his relationship with Merit is not joyfully accepted by all of those around her. He's a 400 year old vampire and not prone to easily accept emotions and humanity. Merit constantly questions whether he is a good part of her life and how her relationship with him has changed her and whether she wants to change. This kind of self reflection - was an absolute delight for me when compared to other books where the heroine's thought processes were, "OMG! He's so hawt! We arez ment to be 2gether 4EVA! SCEWZ everyone else!" *Cough* Bella Twilight *Cough* Luce Fallen *cough* Nora Hush, Hush *Cough*
The political manuevering between the supernaturals, humans, ombudsman etc is interesting to me and it actually is thoughtfully executed. The last two books had endings that I hadn't predicted and a mystery that I didn't actually manage to figure out ahead of time which was VERY much appreciated!
Ethan is an ass - but Merit gives back as good as she takes and even though they're supposed to be in a Master/Servant relationship but they quickly end up as equal partners. Her ideas are respected and - novelty, she actually makes intelligent choices! *cough* mostly *cough*
There were strong, positive female relationships in this book. It's nice to have a character who can be surrounded by other hot, confident women without issue.

By TeensReadToo TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 12 Sept. 2010
Format: Paperback
Merit and her Master vampire have a love-hate relationship. Merit isn't sure how to evolve apart from the relationship, and she's not sure she wants to try. However, something more important catches the attention of the vampire community - the arrival of the werewolves for a meeting about their future.

The Alpha werewolf extends the hand of interest to Ethan Sullivan and Merit. They attend a meeting of the werewolf clan heads, only to find tempers raging and the night ending with disaster.

Now, Ethan and Merit must act as guards for the Alpha while trying to untangle an attempted murder, as well as figuring out the future for the werewolves and thus the entire paranormal community. In a previous war, the werewolves let the vampires take on the humans. Now that the world might be on the brink of war once again, will the werewolves stay and fight, or will they disappear like they did before?

With tensions at a boiling point, Merit's having issues finding an outlet from work. Work is crazy. Her love life is a disaster. She's in a fight with her best friend. Will all these issues add up to Merit doing something reckless and endangering herself?

An adult novel from a crossover author (Ms. Neill's YA debut was FIRESPELL) and the third in the CHICAGOLAND VAMPIRES series that's hard to put down. There are so many things I love about this series, but mostly it's the relationships: Merit and her relationship with Sullivan - the snark and verbal sparring and their tension, Merit and Mallory's relationship, and Merit vs. the world.

I can't wait for the next book in the series!
