The plot is the type of twisty mystery we’ve come to expect from Neill, with a healthy dose of character development: many of the series’ recurring characters are changing and evolving as a result of the new roles they have assumed.

Synopsis

“If you loved Nancy Drew but always wished she was an undead sword-wielding badass, Merit is your kind of girl.”—Geek Monthly

Times are hard for new vampire Merit. Since shapeshifters announced their presence to the world, humans have been rallying against supernaturals, and inside Cadogan House, things between Merit and her Master, Ethan Sullivan, are...tense. Worst of all, a violent vampire attack has left three women missing, and the mayor of Chicago has a simple demand for Merit and Ethan: Get your House in order. Or else.

Merit needs to get to the bottom of the crime, but, unable to tell who’s on her side, she calls in a dangerous favor from a member of an underground vamp group that may have intel on the attack. Merit soon finds herself in the dark heart of Chicago’s supernatural society—a world ready to fulfill the protesting humans’ worst fears, and a place where she’ll learn that being a vampire means getting a little blood on your hands....

Neill does an excellent job at creating a mystery around the essence and distributers of V that it’s hard to guess who’s behind it all.

Reviewed by Sandy Amazeen on May 09 2011

The fourth book of the Chicagoland Vampires delivers enough action, plot twists and fights to satisfy the most jaded urban fantasy reader and that’s not including the surprising climax that will change the future of Chicago and Cadogan House.

...must EVERY man in the world be in love with Merit? Sure, she’s awesome. And according to the covers, super-crazy hot. But, dude. In this book I count five would-be suitors. FIVE. That seems somewhat excessive.
