Chicagoland Vampires Series:
Some Girls Bite: Merit
They killed me. They healed me. They changed me.Sure, the life of a graduate student wasn't exactly glamorous, but it was mine. I was doing fine until Chicago's vampires announced their existence to the world-and then a rogue vampire attacked me. But he only got a sip before he was scared away by another bloodsucker... and this one decided the best way to save my life was to make me the walking undead. From: chloeneill.com
Merit is a rich girl turned graduate student. Instead of trading in on her last name she went in the other direction and became an academic. One late night she is on campus working when she is attacked by a vampire with her throat torn open. The vampire is scared away by other vampires and the new vampire decides to save her by turning her into a vampire. Vampires came out of the coffin approximately 8 months ago, so Merit knows what she has been turned into, but she’s not exactly grateful for the change. Her whole life has been turned upside down, by one Ethan Sullivan, her new “Master”. Now Merit needs to decide if she is going to “submit” to Ethan or go rogue.
This is a great intro into this new world. Merit is not one to easy just accept and go with it, she can think for herself and is not afraid to speak her mind. Her and Ethan clash immediately, it’s a battle of wills and a battle against lust. Isn’t that the best way? It’s certainly more explosive and these two certainly are combustible in their attraction to each other. This book is primarily about Merit navigating this new world and learning how to be a vampire. I really like how she maintains who she even after her transition, she refuses to change who she is just because what she is changed.
