Extrait

Within the last ten months, I’d become a vampire, joined Chicago’s Cadogan House, and become its Sentinel.

I'd learned how to wield a sword, how to bluff a monster, how to fall, and how to get back up.

Perhaps most of all, I'd learned about loyalty. And based on the magic that was pouring through the House's first-floor hallway, I hadn't been the only one who'd taken that particular quality to heart.

Dozens of Cadogan's vampires stood in the hallway outside the office of our Master, Ethan Sullivan, waiting for a call, for a word, for a plan. We stood in our requisite Cadogan black with our katanas at our sides because Ethan-our Liege and my lover¬ was preparing to run.

"Out of one fire and right into another," said the attractive blond vampire beside me. Lindsey was a member of Cadogan's guard corps and a skilled and capable fighter, but tonight she looked, as usual, more like a fashionista than a century-old vampire guard. She'd left her suit jacket downstairs and had matched her satin-striped black tuxedo pants with a white button-down and four-inch stiletto heels.

“Do they actually think we’d just let them take him?” she asked. “That we’d let them arrest him—our Master—right there in front of the House?”

An hour ago, a Chicago Police Department detective—fortunately, one of our allies—had come calling, advising us that the city’s prosecutor had obtained a warrant for Ethan’s arrest.

Ethan had killed Harold Monmonth, a powerful vampire from Europe who’d murdered two human guards before turning his sword on us. Ethan had acted in obvious self-defense, but violence had recently rocked the Windy City. Its citizens were afraid, and its mayor, Diane Kowalcyzk, was looking for someone to blame. She’d apparently managed to bring the prosecutor to her side.

That’s why Ethan was sequestered in his office with Luc, the captain of Cadogan’s guards, and Malik, the House’s second in command, making a plan.

Detective Jacobs suggested Ethan seek refuge with the Breck- enridges, a family of shape-shifters who lived in Loring Park, a suburb outside Chicago. That meant he’d also be outside the mayor’s jurisdiction. The Brecks were über-wealthy, well con- nected, and politically influential. That was a powerful combi- nation and enough, we hoped, to keep the mayor from using him as a sacrificial lamb.

Papa Breck, the family patriarch, was a friend of my father, Chicago real estate mogul Joshua Merit. I’d gone to school with some of the Breckenridge boys and had even dated one of them. But the Brecks had no love for vampires, which was part of the reason for the closed-door negotiations.

Ethan was the other reason. He was nearly four centuries old, and he had the stubbornness to match his age. Going gently into that good night wasn’t his style, but Luc and Malik wanted him safely away. It had been a long winter for the House— including Ethan’s premature demise and resurrection—and we didn’t need any more drama. We certainly didn’t trust Kowalcyzk and feared turning Ethan over to a justice system that seemed to be rigged against us.

The door had been closed for an hour. Voices had been raised, and the disagreement between Ethan and his soldiers spilled tense magic into the hallway. That was my particular point of con- tention. I was Cadogan’s Sentinel, but I hadn’t been allowed in the office. The words “plausible deniability” had been thrown around—right before the door had been shut in my face.

“The mayor knew there’d be trouble,” I said. “The CPD al- ready said Ethan acted in self-defense. And we just handed McKetrick to them on a silver platter. The city has absolutely nothing to complain about where we’re concerned.”

The detective’s warning had come only hours after we’d managed to prove McKetrick, the city’s now former supernatural liaison, was the source of the riots that had spread violence, de- struction, and fire around the city. You’d think that would have put us in the mayor’s good graces. Alas, no.

“They won’t stay away forever,” I said. “Jacobs wouldn’t have warned us if he didn’t think they were serious. And that doesn’t give us many options. Ethan flees, or we have to fight.”

“Whatever their next move, the House will be ready,” Lindsey said. “We just have to scoot Ethan out of here.” She checked a delicate gold watch. “Not much time before sunrise. This is going to be close.”

“Papa Breck could still say no,” I pointed out, wrapping my arms around my knees. He and Ethan were different sups, but equally stubborn.


But Lindsey shook her head. “Not if he’s smart. Arresting a vampire for a bullshit reason isn’t far from arresting a shifter for a bullshit reason. If Papa Breck doesn’t take a stand now, he’ll put the Pack at risk. But if he does take a stand?” She clucked her tongue. “Then he wins, double or nothing. We’ll owe him a favor, and he’ll have stood up to Kowalcyzk. That reinforces his power, and it’s just—”

Before she could finish, the office door opened.

Luc and Malik emerged, Ethan behind them. All three were tall and bore the toughened shoulders of men in charge, but the physical similarities ended there.

Luc had tousled blond-brown hair and preferred snug jeans and well-worn boots to Ethan’s and Malik’s exquisite suits. Since Ethan’s welfare fell under his jurisdiction, Luc’s ruggedly hand- some features were tight with concern.

Malik had cocoa skin, closely cropped hair, and pale green eyes that thoughtfully took in the hallway of vampires. Malik was reserved, careful, and unquestionably respected by the House. But like Luc, he also didn’t look thrilled with the circumstances.

And then there was Ethan.

He was built like an athlete—long and lean, with taut muscles and a body that fit perfectly into his trim black suit. His hair was straight, shoulder length, and golden, framing a face so gorgeous it might have been sculpted by a master artist. Straight nose, honed cheekbones, lush mouth, and eyes as sharp and green as flawless emeralds. Ethan was as alpha as they came, protective and preten- tious, intelligent and strategic, and stubborn enough to match me well.

We’d had our false starts, but we’d finally found a clear path to each other. That might have been the biggest miracle of all.

Ethan’s forehead was pinched in concern, but his eyes gave away nothing. He was the Master of our House; he didn’t have the luxury of self-doubt.

A dozen vampires jumped to their feet.

“I’ll be traveling to the Breckenridge estate,” Ethan an- nounced. “Cadogan vampires do not run. We do not hide. We do not scurry into the dark. We face our problems—head-on. But this House has been through much of late. I have been asked, for the sake of the House, to consider making myself scarce. I have agreed to do so—as a temporary measure.”

The tension in my chest eased, but not by much. He clearly wasn’t thrilled with the plan.

“In the meantime, we’ll try to put this ugly business to bed. The House’s lawyers will address the warrant. Malik has a friend in the governor’s office, and he’ll reach out to determine if the governor can encourage Mayor Kowalcyzk to act reasonably.”

That was news to me, but then again, Malik was the quiet sort. And I didn’t think he was the type to call in a political favor unless absolutely necessary.

“You’ll take Merit to the Brecks’?” Lindsey asked. “Assuming she can fit it into her schedule,” he said.

Drama or not, there was always time for snark in Cadogan House.

“I’ll manage,” I assured him, “although I hate to leave my grandfather here.”

My grandfather was Chicago’s former supernatural liaison— emphasis on the “former”—but he and his employees, Catcher Bell and Jeff Christopher, still helped the CPD with supernatural issues. Because he’d helped us investigate the riots, McKetrick had targeted him. Grandpa’s house had been firebombed, and he’d been caught in the explosion. He was recovering, but he was still in the hospital. He’d been more of a father to me than my


actual father, and although he had people to protect him, I felt guilty leaving while he was out of service.

“I’ll check in on him,” Luc promised. “Give you updates.”

“In that case,” Ethan said, “we’ll leave shortly. Malik has the House. And as you know, he makes a very capable Master when I’m . . . indisposed.”

There were appreciative chuckles in the crowd. It wasn’t Ma- lik’s first rodeo as Master; he’d held the job when Ethan hadn’t been among the living.

“I will be honest. This may not work. We are betting that Diane Kowalcyzk is politically ambitious enough to not cross the Breckenridge family. That gambit could prove incorrect. Either way, our relationship with the city of Chicago could get worse before it gets better. But we are, and we will remain, Cadogan vampires.”

He arched an eyebrow, a habit he used frequently and usually with good effect. “Of course, those Cadogan vampires should be at work right now, not eavesdropping outside their Master’s office.”

Smiling and appropriately chastised, the vampires dispersed, of- fering good-byes to their Liege as they passed. Margot, the House’s brilliant chef, squeezed my hand, then headed down the hallway toward the kitchen.

Malik, Luc, Lindsey, and I stepped inside Ethan’s office. He looked over his staff.

“We have a brief reprieve,” Ethan said, “but the city may come knocking again.”

“The House is ready,” Luc said. “Lakshmi, however, is still on her way. We couldn’t convince her to delay.”

That was another sticky situation. Cadogan was no longer a member of the Greenwich Presidium, the organization that ruled


North American and Western European vampire houses. Mon- month had been one of its members. The GP was no friend of Cadogan House, and they apparently weren’t willing to ignore the fact that we were now responsible for the deaths of two of their members. While we were no longer concerned about their opinion of us, they made powerful and dangerous enemies.

Lakshmi, one of the remaining GP members, was traveling to Chicago to render its verdict. It probably helped that she was one of the more commonsensical members of the GP, but it was odd that she was traveling while Darius West, the GP head, stayed under the radar in London. He’d been a political nonentity since an attack by a vampire assassin relieved him of his confidence, or so we surmised.

As it turned out, Lakshmi also was a friend to the Red Guard, the secret organization that kept watch on the Houses and their Masters. I was a new member, partnered with the guard captain from Grey House, Jonah. Lakshmi had provided insider infor- mation about GP shenanigans; in return for her help, I’d offered an unspecified favor. It was inevitable she’d attempt to collect; vampires were particular that way.

“Keep her out of the House,” Ethan said. “We aren’t members of the GP, and she has no business in our domain. She may have a legitimate claim to reparations, but that can be dealt with when we’ve dealt with the city.”

“I spoke with Lakshmi’s majordomo,” Luc said, “tried to winnow information out of her. She wouldn’t budge.”

“We’ll deal with it when we deal with it,” Ethan said. “This entire situation is fraught with hazard.”

Malik nodded. “It all comes down to who blinks first.”

Ethan’s eyes flattened. “Whatever happens, Cadogan House will not blink first.”


We lived in Chicago, which meant off-street parking spots were hard to come by and the objects of envy. The House’s coveted underground parking lot was accessible through the basement, so we headed downstairs. Ethan keyed the security pad at the door and stepped inside the basement but, when the heavy door closed behind us, dropped his duffel and grabbed my hand.

“Come here,” he said, voice heavy with desire. He didn’t wait for my response, but caught me by surprise, his mouth on mine, his hands at my waist, suddenly insistent.

I was nearly out of breath when he finally released me. “What was that?” I barely managed to ask.

Ethan brushed a lock of hair behind my ear. “I had need of you, Sentinel.”

“You’ve got me,” I assured him with a smile. “But at the moment, we have need of speed.”

“Not your best work,” he cannily said, but he put a hand on my cheek and gazed into my eyes as if he might discover the world’s secrets there. “What’s wrong?”

“I’m nervous about leaving,” I admitted. “You’re worried about your grandfather.”

I nodded. “He was asleep when I called. He’ll understand— he always does. I just wish I didn’t have to ask him to be under- standing.”

Ethan kissed my brow. “You are a good granddaughter, Car- oline Evelyn Merit.”

“I’m not sure about that. But I’m trying.” Sometimes, that was the best a girl could do.

I gestured toward the gleaming silver bullet that sat in the House’s visitor spot, the antique Mercedes roadster Ethan had bought for me from the Pack leader himself. She was sweet and perfectly restored, and I called her Moneypenny. She was also still registered in Gabriel’s name, which seemed a better transpor- tation option than taking Ethan’s car. But since he had decades’ more driving experience than me—and we were in a hurry—I held out the keys.

“Shall we?”

Ethan’s eyes widened with delight. He’d been attempting to buy Moneypenny for years and had probably wanted to slide behind the wheel for even longer.

“If we’re going to run,” he said, taking the keys from me, a spark jumping across our fingertips as they brushed, “we might as well escape in style.”

Sometimes that was the best a vampire could do.

je suis la série depuis son début. Et c'est toujours avec le même plaisir que je retrouve les personnages, leurs histoires et leurs sarcasmes. Ce tome-ci en VO vaut le détour pour l'intrigue, mais surtout pour Methan.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Encore une réussite 23 février 2014
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
C’est avec un énorme plaisir que j’ai retrouvé Ethan et Merit.
A la fin du tome 8 Ethan se préparait à avoir des soucis avec la Maire, il fallait donc qu’il trouve refuge quelque part. Et quoi de mieux qu’un endroit rempli de métamorphes.
Bien entendu, il emmène Merit avec lui et les problèmes aussi. Nous retrouvons beaucoup de personnages qui nous ont plus ou moins manqués et on en découvre aussi 2 petits nouveaux pour lesquels j’aimerais bien que Chloé Neill sorte une petite nouvelle du même genre que celle de Jeff avec Fallon et Luc avec Lindsey.
L’écriture de Chloé est toujours aussi fluide, il n’y a pas un moment où l’on se repose et pour une fois il n’y a pas de conflit entre Merit et Ethan. On sent bien que leur relation évolue.
Et cette fin, je veux absolument lire Blood Games parce que ce tome risque d’être très intéressant.
Je trouve vraiment que l’ambiance de ces livres est magique, les personnages ne sont pas niais, ils ont des réactions tout à fait normales et c’est pour ça qu’on les aime.
Et puis qui n’apprécierait Ethan et son caractère.
Plus on avance dans la série et plus les relations entre les différents personnages évoluent. Les amitiés se lient et se délient.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Ethan & Merit together plus plenty of shifter time? What more could you ask for? 4 février 2014
Par A Book Obsession.. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I adore Merit and Ethan together, and in WILD THINGS they were stronger than ever. I love how they are finding their way with one another and able to talk things through and come out stronger. Poor Merit carried a pretty heavy burden for a lot of this book, and when she finally got the courage to reveal things to Ethan, my heart about melted at his response. It's pretty obvious how dedicated he is, and considering the very rocky start the two had, I'm so happy to see that change. That being said, I have to admit that I just don't get Merit panicking whenever she thinks Ethan is about to propose. It's happened a couple of times now, and each time she freaks out and thinks it's too soon, we hardly know each other, etc etc. Which quite frankly baffles me to no end. I mean the woman knows that Ethan is it for her. She's even gone through the pain of losing him when he was dead for a time. So why in the world does the idea of marriage frighten her? I'll just have to chalk that one up to something I'll never understand.

It was really great to spend so much time with the shifters in WILD THINGS. I love Jeff and Gabriel. Of course things don't exactly go smoothly with their time with the shifters, but that's par for course with Chicagoland and makes things all the more interesting. Also, speaking of Gabriel? Oh my goodness! The prophecy? Yep, it's everything I was hoping for, and just that reveal more than made the entire book, especially Ethan's reaction. That being said, despite the reveal of what the green eyes meant, things are still pretty vague as to how things will actually happen. I seriously cannot wait until the next book to see where things lead with this!

It never ceases to amaze me how these books can have so much jammed into them, but never once feel overwhelming. This time around there were several plots going on at once, not to mention a few overall arcing series plots, plus a whole lot of emotion and character to development to boot. All I can say is bravo to you Chloe! Fans of the series will not want to miss this great installment in the Chicagoland Vampires series. An absolute treat not to be missed.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Disappointing and Underwhelming 4 février 2014
Par BookGeek - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
There is nothing really wrong with this book, it's just boring. Boring, because it's more of the same. The City of Chicago are still bullies, Merit and gang stumble upon yet another magical mystery that only they can solve and nothing much else happens. Lots of series have formulas and monster of the week type formats, but in my opinion Chicagoland suffers for it. There just isn't much holding me to the series beyond the fact that I love Ethan Sullivan, but even he fell flat for me in WILD THINGS.

We finally learn the meaning behind Gabriel's infamous prophecy and I kind of guessed it years ago. But! But after years of reading this series, the prophecy seems illogical and against the lore Chloe Neill has spent years setting up. More, Merit has been taken from normal girl to Ms. chosen one, special, first of her kind, McAwesome. Completely against the premise that a grad student becomes a vampire. All of a sudden she's something more, which isn't what I signed up for. I'm kind of tired of the "chosen one" angle, no matter how simple or intimate the anomaly is.

Then there is the mystery. I have often felt that Merit and team were weak detectives, and they are, but for some reason the characters in this particular installment seem to think that they are getting better or accomplishing feats, when really they are just bumbling around in the dark. They stumble across leads without any real deductions or investigative prowess. Everything is solved with a single phrase or action. Too easily wrapped up with not enough tension or resolution. In fact, I could care less about the villain.

The ending was intriguing and I'll no doubt read the next book without such high hopes, but interest non the less.

I am really disappointed and underwhelmed by this book,

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Excited about the new direction this series has taken 4 février 2014
Par RabidReads - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
The plot of WILD THINGS isn’t groundbreakingly original but that’s to be expected of the ninth installment in any series. This book does however highlight the exhilarating supernatural detective-type story line that I’ve come to expect from Chloe Neill’s CHICAGOLAND VAMPIRES, emphasizes great chemistry between Merit and Ethan, and also introduces some pretty significant changes to this series’ main arc. I didn’t love this novel, but I did like it a heck of a lot, and the ending definitely gave me plenty of great reasons to pick-up BLOOD GAMES in August.

There seems to be new breed of supe in town that’s making the rounds of paranormal fiction because this wasn’t the first book that I’ve read this year that’s featured this previously scarce race. They don’t play an extremely large role in this story but just the revelation that they exist was still pretty significant. Neill’s werewolves have become a semi-permanent fixture in this series which makes me wonder whether these supes will as well. Either way, I really enjoyed this installment’s set-up because the first half revolves around the werewolves which are always a recipe for success in my opinion. I loved learning about Lupercalia, and the author’s description of Pack magic was beautifully written.

I adored Merit and Ethan in WILD THINGS; they acted like a couple who’s in their honeymoon stage—constantly stealing kisses from each other, even when facing life-or-death situations. They are finally putting each other first! It was such a relief to see them united after having been at odds for so long; their love has stabilized into something healthy and strong. There’s even a pretty racy scene between these two sweethearts that’ll have you hoping that Chloe Neill decides to branch out one day and add Paranormal Romance to her writing repertoire because she’s definitely proved that she has the talent for it.

Even though I wasn’t horribly surprised by any of the twists that are introduced in this novel; they bode well for the future of this series. This installment reinforces the fact that the CHICAGOLAND VAMPIRES are here to stay, and I for one am excited about the new direction Neill has decided to take them in. There are some major things in the works for both Merit and Ethan. And, although one of the eventual outcomes has already been prophesied, the road to get there will undoubtedly be bumpy and difficult, i.e. immensely entertaining to read!

WILDS THINGS is a great addition to the Urban Fantasy genre, and another thrilling installment in Chloe Neill’s best-selling series. I can’t get enough of these books!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Much better than the last few books in this series! 5 mars 2014
Par K. Eckert - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This is the ninth book in the Chicagoland Vampire series by Neill. I thought this book was much better than the last few books in the series. It feels like Neill finally has a new story arc starting that will encompass the next few books. The tenth book in this series, Blood Games, is scheduled for an August 2014 release. The most recent info I could find says that Neill is contracted for a total of 13 books in this series.

Ethan and Merit seek shelter at the Brecks because the Mayor wants to arrest Ethan. While there they are supposed to partake in a celebration with the Shifters, but an attack by harpies leaves them with a new mess to deal with. On top of this all a rep from the GP has arrived in Chicago and wants reparations for the GP vampire Representative that was killed by Cadogan house.

This book did an excellent job of ramping the series back up to its former glory, the series had been slowing down a bit over the last couple books. If you had a bit of trouble with the last couple books in the series, you can breathe a breath of relief...this book was much better and very fast-paced. This book was back up to the level of the earlier books in the series.Not only did Ethan and Merit solve a contained mystery but there are also a couple longer terms story arcs started as well.

Merit and Ethan have both grown a lot and are in a comfortable (while still steamy) place in their relationship. I enjoyed watching them work as a team to protect Cadogan House.

Mallory and Catcher are also mending fences. Mallory and Merit are also working on mending their friendship. It was great to have the perky and fun Mallory back even if she is a bit more worn and world-wise than she was at the beginning of the series. I enjoyed watching as Mallory and Catcher work magic together and enjoyed watching Mallory have a good purpose to her life again.

We get to see many of our favorite characters in here. Merit spends a lot of time with Jeff and all of the other shapeshifters. We don’t as much as the Cadogan House vampires, but they are in the story some.

The plot has some mystery solving, some butt-kicking and some continuing politics between Cadogan House and both the Mayor of Chicago and the GP.

Overall this was an excellent book in the Chicagoland Vampires series. I loved that there was a mystery that was completely wrapped up in this book and that there were also a couple of longer term storylines added. I also loved that all of our characters seem to be maturing and are in good places in their lives. It was fun to watch them work as a team to solve problems and help out other supernaturals. This book got me excited to read this series again and I am looking forward to the 10th book in the series Blood Games!

2.0 étoiles sur 5 super sad face =( 5 février 2014
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com

Okay, first let me say, Chicagoland Vampires is one of my top 3 all time favorite series. I love Chloe and love the story she has shared with us. Merit is witty, strong, caring and easy to fall in love with. Ethan is OMG sexy and I can never get enough of him. I love Jeff, Catcher, Mallory, Luc, Lindsey and all the supporting characters. I can't get enough of the humor, and excitement I get while reading all of the books in this series....so why only 2 stars???

The book was boooooooring, it was the same exact thing over and over. The city of Chicago hates the sups, and there is some great detective work to be done by Merit and her friends. I feel there was nothing new added to the series and the 2 big discoveries (green eyes) and (the GP solution ) were overly predictable. Come on if you invested the time to read the series you knew already knew these two big surprises.

Truth be told I missed the moments that I laughed out loud, the giddy giggling when it comes to Ethan, the emotional roller coaster and connection I used to feel, with the story and Characters.

Finally I am sad to say this is my least favorite book of the series. I will continue to finish out the series, only bc I have already invested the years into the story.
