Turned into a vampire against her will, twenty-eight-year-old Merit found her way into the dark circle of Chicago’s vampire underground, where she learned there was more to supernaturals than met the eye—and more supernaturals than the public ever imagined.And not all the secrets she learned were for sharing—among humans or inhumans. Now Merit is on the hunt, charging across the stark American Midwest, tailing a rogue supernatural intent on stealing an ancient artifact that could unleash catastrophic evil on the world. But Merit is also the prey. An enemy of Chicagoland is hunting her, and he’ll stop at nothing to get the book for himself. No mercy allowed.

No rules apply. No lives spared. The race is on.


BOOK REVIEW by Michelle:

The way Drink Deep ended # 5, I was asking myself, where is Chloe taking us with Mr Ethan Sullivan? My first reaction was EEEeeEEEeeee..... he is back, thank the lord Chloe brought him back, then my second thought was, oh dear, I hope he was brought back intact.

What I loved about this book was Ethan Ethan Ethan, he was in a lot of scenes and he was with Merit.

“Ethan...”

“No,” he said, crystalline green eyes boring into me. “You are my choice. I told you before --- you are mine, by blood and bone. I won’t let her come between that, no matter how sick she is.”


Mallory has become this force to be reckoned with and she is playing the part of good girl turned bad very nicely, queue the wind blowing her hair as she chants from the Maleficium.

This book kept moving us about. The good ol’ GP was being a pain, Darius was being a thorn in Ethan’s side when he really had other more pressing issues to handle.

Faeries were being helpful.

WT!

I also noticed Merit said thankyou to one. Isn’t that a big no, no, in the faerie rule book. Just something I noticed.

Mallory.... what a tangled web we weave when one practices to deceive, and errr.... turn evil. I do feel sorry for Catcher. I hope they make it.

Gabriel, my fave shifter has turned up with his Merit name calling. I love it when he calls Merit, ‘Kitten’. Gabriel is dishing ( no pun intended) out tough love, I could have hugged him for showing a compassion I didn’t think he had in him.

Gotta love Gabriel J J

I must mention Berna... lol! No joke whenever she speaks I have this voice in my head that is Berna. Berna makes an appearance and she is just too funny.

I would not tell her that though.

She immediately scowled at me. “Still too thin. You eat?” she asked, her voice thick with an Eastern European accent.

“I eat constantly,” I promised.

She shook her head and muttered something under her breath. Then she pounded a fist on the bar and stared at all of us. “You will eat now.”


Jeff, I just love the guy, he is the Knight in errr.... shining blanket when a certain person needs him, just an all round good guy who knows right from wrong and helps out when he is called on.

Adorable as Jeff was, I couldn’t get the image of him riding excitedly in an old- fashioned sidecar --- brown locks waving in the wind, as happy as a puppy ---- out of my mind.


“Just stay in play as my backup.”
I nearly swerved the car off the road. “I’m sorry --- your backup?”
“You know, in case it doesn’t work out with Fallon.”
“And what about Ethan?”
Jeff chuckled . “ I just figured he was your backup for me.” 


I am loving the librarian getting his glasses in a fog over a new character. 

Malik is still such a gorgeous character, he isn’t power hungry, he just gracefully steps aside when Ethan comes back into the picture. He is such a loyal guy who you would trust in a heartbeat.

Now Ethan, you put Merit in as Sentinel, mate, you gotta let her be a Sentinel and stop worrying, you had me waiting and waiting for the smexi time because you worry too much. You carry so much on your back. If I was Merit I would have walked to your door, knocked, and stood there in a sexy bra and knickers. I know there were more pressing matters at hand, but you came back from the dead!!


Chloe the frustration of waiting for Ethan to either demote Merit so they can get their funky chicken on ( so he doesn’t have to be a worry wart) , or accept that she can handle herself and get naked!!

Jonah, I do love thee too. Oh dear, the day Ethan finds out you kissed Merit. I shall stand clear when that happens.

Lovely twist in this book, all is not what it seems. I liked that!

This was another great instalment in Chloe’s Chicagoland Vampires.

Sexual tension...check!

Ethan being over protective...check!

Giant Gnome..check!

Yes , I said Giant Gnome....didn’t see that one coming did ya, lol!
