Review: Some Girls Bite by Chloe Neill

Goodreads Synopsis:

They killed me. They healed me. They changed me. Sure, the life of a graduate student wasn’t exactly glamorous, but I was doing fine until Chicago’s vampires announced their existence to the world. When a rogue vampire attacked me, I was lucky he only got a sip. Another bloodsucker scared him off and decided the best way to save my life was to make me the walking undead.

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 someone’s 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.


My Review:

Some Girls Bite has a world within an existing world and both were portrayed and developed beautifully. Though I’ve never been to Chicago, I found it easy to imagine being in the world Merit lived in.

The characters are very interesting and were developed just enough that I was able to relate well to a few of them. I also love how Merit actively decides not to fall into a romance and, regardless of numerous opportunities to do so, she sticks to her guns on that decision.

The story felt a bit slow in places but there were a few twists and turns to the story that evened it out. The end is not at all what I predicted it would be, which is always wonderful in my opinion. I really enjoyed this book and am excited to continue with the next book in the Chicagoland Vampires Series.

Overall, I rate Some Girls Bite 4 out of 5 bookworms.

Don’t just take my word for it. Order Some Girls Bite, Book 1 of the Chicagoland Vampires Series, from Amazon US or Amazon UK and enjoy it for yourself!
