~ 4 Dark Debt Stars ~
Dark Debt is book eleven in the Chicagoland Vampires series by Chloe Neill.
There are so many things I have come to enjoy about this series. The mystery, adventure, action, good food, snarky comments, and the every enjoyable cacophony of characters. Each installment gives us an eventful plot with a mystery to solve and new threats to Ethan and Merit’s relationship. There was so much action, banter, and strategizing that I never got board or felt rushed in Dark Debt.
Blood Games left us with one gripping cliffhanger and Dark Debt starts us off dealing with this new threat. Their were two enemies causing trouble in Chicago; the return of an old figure who is very dark, loves to cause chaos, and havoc plus a fabulous mob twist.
Merit is snarky, funny, has the best comebacks, and is a great kick-ass heroine who can take care of herself. In this story something happens that makes her feel violated. She must over come this new challenge and feelings. Ethan is and has always been very much an Alpha of his world and what happens to Merit shakes him as much as her. He is now more possessive, protective and moody. These two work well as a team, bring out the best in each other, and balance one and other out. This old threat does not change this, but does affect their relationship in some way. As for the mob, well Merit and Ethan will deal with them as a new game is a foot.
Mallory and Catcher, have some big surprises in story for us and some heartfelt moments. Their aww moment was just to good. We learn more about Morgan, his house, and issues. I was surprised to see Morgan man-up along with Merit’s dad. The author also gives us a rift between, Jonah and Merit, that is not yet resolved and I look forward to seeing where this goes.
I can’t wait to see where things go in the stories and do hope that one day we get the prophecy to come about for Ethan and Merit. If you enjoy non-stop action-packed adventure with great food and comebacks, then I recommend picking up the series. CNeil has created an exceptional world with her Chicagoland Vampires.
