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.

Almost Great...

I am a huge fan of this series and was delighted that I could now enjoy it as an audiobook. This is a great book that was almost a great audiobook. Although the narrator played secondary characters very well, her interpretation of Merit was, at times, way over the top. Switching 'voices' during dialogue was occasionally a problem, as well as missing inflection (if someone is condescending he should sound condescending). What's most frustrating is that this book isn't horrible, just inconsistent in it's performance. What I thought was going to be an auto-buy series has turned into a "should I or shouldn't I" situation for future purchases.

An idiotic sorrority based vampire novel

This was the worst vampire novel to which I have forced myself to listen. The main character, Merit, is a self professed intellectual graduate student with the vocabulary of a mold spore and the individuality of an ant. The entire vampire culture in this series is based on the sorority and fraternity pledge system with all of the conformity and shallow seeking of people of good families that that implies. Nothing of the vampire mythology is created, just borrowed and that badly. If you want to waste your time reading about catty fashion conscious women and boyfriend planning, this is the book for you.
