Publisher's Summary

At the tender age of 25, Merit became a sword-wielding vampire. Since then, she's become the protector of her House, watched Chicago nearly burn to the ground, and seen her Master fall and rise. Now she'll see her mettle - and her metal - tested like never before.
It started with two rogues vanishing without a trace. Someone is targeting Chicago's vampires, and anyone could be next. With their house in peril, Merit and her Master, the centuries-old Ethan Sullivan, must race to stop the disappearances. But as they untangle a web of secret alliances and ancient evils, they realize their foe is more familiar, and more powerful, than they could have ever imagined.

Critic Reviews

"Rising star Neill has made the learning curve for her gutsy heroine, Merit, quite steep, which means the journey is all the more spellbinding." ( Romantic Times)

Narrator improving with each book

I wanted to disagree with those who have expressed disappointment with Sophie Eastlake's performance. I started the series a few weeks ago and have been listening to them one after another (and really enjoying them!).

It was disconcerting to get to book 6 and find a new narrator, and I did have some trouble adjusting to the change at first, but with House Rules I thought that Sophie Eastlake really hit her stride and did an excellent job.

I've just started Book 8, Biting Bad, and the performance is only getting better in my opinion. In fact I think that is the big improvement over the previous narrator. There is a lot more theatricality to the way she voices the characters and their emotions. I find her very believable.

Waiting to read what happens next?????/

Would you listen to House Rules again? Why?

Yes, I already have 3 times,because you learn something you missed the time before.

What did you like best about this story?

Character Development,the triangle between Ethan,Merrit and Lacey and Ethan,Merrit and Jonah

How did the narrator detract from the book?

just different vibe from previous narrator

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Cadogan House,This House always Rules (i know cheezy but i had to think quick lol)

Any additional comments?

Great Read!!!!!! Can't wait to find out why Morgan can talk to Merrit, via the connection and who's green eyes did Gabriel see in Merrits' future. And the mysterious tatoo Ethan has on his leg whats up with that.
