Review: Wild Hunger (Heirs of Chicagoland #1) by Chloe Neill



Blurb from Goodreads:
In the first thrilling installment of Chloe Neill's spinoff to the New York Times bestselling Chicagoland Vampires series, a new vampire will find out just how deep blood ties run.

As the only vampire child ever born, some believed Elisa Sullivan had all the luck. But the magic that helped bring her into the world left her with a dark secret. Shifter Connor Keene, the only son of North American Central Pack Apex Gabriel Keene, is the only one she trusts with it. But she's a vampire and the daughter of a Master and a Sentinel, and he's prince of the Pack and its future king.

When the assassination of a diplomat brings old feuds to the fore again, Elisa and Connor must choose between love and family, between honor and obligation, before Chicago disappears forever.
My Review:
 
I [mostly] loved the Chicagoland Vampires series so I was pretty intrigued and excited for this spin-off featuring the "heirs" of all of our favorite characters from that series.  That being said, maybe it's too soon?  I don't know but this book had all the things I didn't love about the series - a bit cheesy, over the top and hard to follow the minutiae.  I will keep reading to see if it improves because I know the capability of this author and these subjects and there was enough of a spark of an idea that could work.  But his first book wasn't quite the bang I was hoping for . . .  

Wild Hunger came out yesterday on August 14, 2018, and you can purchase HERE.  Let's hope this series improves as it continues!
"It's not a risk-free idea," she admitted. "But what's the other option? We sit around while Riley's in lockup?"
"We could end up dead." 
"That's true for you every time the sun rises. The only thing that matters is what you do in the dark."

  1. Do you think this will work for me if I haven't read the original series, Eva? I've liked that other series from hers. I'm sorry it didn't deliver though for you. :(

  2. I have heard this author is fantastic, so I am always intrigued. But I am never sure if her books would be my cup of tea

I love this trope, sub-genre, setting: My Best Friend's Brother/My Brother's Best Friend

I Love This Trope, Sub-Genre, Setting is a new feature on my blog in which I discuss a trope, sub-genre or setting that I love and tell you about books that are shining examples of said trope, sub-genre or setting.  Feel free to play along and please let me know about your favorite books in this realm and whether you like this trope, sub-genre and/or setting as much as I do! Today I am spotlighting the trope of: My Best Friend's Brother/My Brother's Best Friend, which I would define as any book where the heroine either has a crush on or falls for her brother's best friend or her best friend's brother.

I have to confess that I love this trope in nearly all of its iterations!  I have a younger brother so I never got to crush on any of his friends but it's fun reading about that and it's equally as fun as reading about falling for your best friend's brother -- instant sisters!  I know there are a ton of books that I'm missing/haven't read so please let m…
