Well, my pick of the week is a bit of a strange choice for me to make, since it is the fifth book in a series I haven’t even started yet. Drink Deep is the much anticipated new entry in the Chicagoland Vampires series from Chloe Neill – the first four of which are waiting for me to read. But since the last one ended on what I understand is the grand-daddy of all cliffhangers, I decided to wait for this one to be released before I start. Cliffhangers = evil.
Clouds are brewing over Cadogan House, and recently turned vampire Merit can’t tell if this is the darkness before the dawn or the calm before the storm. With the city itself in turmoil over paranormals and the state threatening to pass a paranormal registration act, times haven’t been this precarious for vampires since they came out of the closet. If only they could lay low for a bit, and let the mortals calm down.
That’s when the waters of Lake Michigan suddenly turn pitch black-and things really start getting ugly.
Chicago’s mayor insists it’s nothing to worry about, but Merit knows only the darkest magic could have woven a spell powerful enough to change the very fabric of nature. She’ll have to turn to friends old and new to find out who’s behind this, and stop them before it’s too late for vampires and humans alike.
Biting Cold will follow on August 7th.
