Publisher's Summary

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 that the best way to save my life was to make me the walking undead. Turns out my savior was the master vampire of Cadogan House. Now I've traded sweating over my thesis for learning to fit in at a Hyde Park mansion full of vamps loyal to Ethan "Lord o' the Manor" Sullivan. Of course, as a tall, green-eyed, four-hundred-year-old vampire, he has centuries' worth of charm, but unfortunately he expects my gratitude---and servitude. Right. But my burgeoning powers (all of a sudden, I'm surprisingly handy with some serious weaponry), an inconvenient sunlight allergy, and Ethan's attitude are the least of my concerns. Someone's still out to get me. Is it the rogue vampire who bit me? A vamp from a rival House? An angry mob bearing torches? My initiation into Chicago's nightlife may be the first skirmish in a war---and there will be blood.

GREAT

I have read and listened to a lot of different vampire series and this series is definitely in my top five. The story line is wonderful, the narrator is excellent, and the characters are fun. I love this series and can’t wait for the next book to come out in August. I have already listened to this series a few times and will continue to do so. 5 stars.

Meh

Spoilers ahead: I was looking for something new after the last fabulous Jeaniene Frost book. Found this, and since it was on sale, decided to give it a shot. Was sorely disappointed. Basically, it's catty girls and arrogant guys playing dress-up in a Chicago-based fraternity/sorority system. The dialogue was immature, unnecessarily snarky, and quite frankly it sounded like the author was trying to hard. The character development was weak, the arc of the plot was dull, and, even for an UF novel, some things were too fantastic (she's a super powerful novice vamp? her roommate is a super-powerful sorceress but doesn't even know it? she's offered the spot of "consort" and sentinel right off the bat?). I echo other reviewers who have been extremely annoyed with the narrator's rendition of the various voices. Even when she was reading non-dialogue, she does it in sort of a snarky, sarcastic tone. Weird. Anyway, would not recommend this book. Apparently the second and third in the series are better, but I'm not going to waste a credit or money on either.
