Some Girls Bite (Chicagoland Vampires, Book 1)

Some Girls Bite - Chloe Neill There are certain series or books that become fairly popular to that in most books conversations of the genre they belong to, they get mentioned. One (mostly me) wonders if said book or series is really good as people say, or if it's just hype. Then the cards fall on the table and you end up with a copy in your hands. Then it happens, after reading the book you become obsessed (hook, line and sinker) to the point that you wonder why on earth I didn't started this earlier. That was the process I went through with Some Girls Bite.I've heard so much great about this series that I have to try. Thanks author Michelle Scott I got the chance to do it. Now, well, now I’m a believer!Merit is a soon to be 28-year-old college student writing her dissertation when she in turned into a vampire. Creatures that have recently come out of the coffin, sort of speak, to live amongst humans. With her life turn completely upside down, Merit must learn to accept her new future and adapt to her new situations. If only she didn't felt so attracted to "Lord O’ the Manor” Sullivan, master vampire who turned her, things would be a little easier. Merit spends most of the book at the reluctant vampire who at one point (and then another) acts like a petulant child. It's easy to sympathize with her, simply because she was turned against her will at everyone around expect her to just turn the page and move on. To her whole process she discovers that vampires are only the tip of the iceberg of the supernatural community. Creating, as she goes, relationships with very unlikely allies. This story might focus on vampires, but the universe is by no means limited; and Merit is not the only strong character. Although she gains new friends Merit’s thorn remains to be none other than her maker. I really loved the story, Merit is a strong female that will not compromise her belief simply because she is expected to act a certain way or because people want to typecast her into a certain role. This is definitively a series that I’ll continue to read.For this and more reviews visit my blog: Journey with Words
