The Pack also realized that with a sorceress attempting to redeem herself, they had enough staff to increase their income. Mallory put her trays on the table, where they were immediately arranged by the Cadogan House chef, Margot, a vampire with a signature bob of sable hair.
I nodded, feeling as relieved as he sounded. Fortunately, Mallory was recovering from the addiction to black magic that had led her astray. But the wounds were still fresh, and vampires had long memories. I would need time before I could trust her again, and I had the sense she needed time to trust herself, as well.
It seemed like a good idea all around. My evening plans addressed, I caught up with Mallory as she began to walk away from the table, probably to grab another tray of meats. It seemed to me to be a good sign. She smiled and touched the top of her bun. It took forever, and I lost four towels in the process, but I think it turned out. I nodded and walked beside her. You do the math. Many of the Rogues had purposely avoided the House system, and now we were inviting them here to socialize.
The answer came quickly, and it was decidedly shorter than a demigod. Mallory frowned as a barrel-chested woman with bleached hair stepped out of the truck and headed our way.
She was a shifter named Berna, and she tended bar and worked the kitchens at Little Red. The food looks good. But I still needed time. I had to respect that, and I truly hoped she could make it stick. They seemed to be mixing relatively well—which was the entire point of a mixer, really. They wore heavy biker leathers and tie-dyed shirts, classic Goth ensembles and cocktail dresses.
Some of them had been snubbed or excluded by the House system, and some of them had purposely chosen the Rogue life. None of them seemed the worse for it. Ethan worked the crowd like a master diplomat, moving from cluster to cluster of vampires, shaking hands and listening attentively while they chatted. Luc stepped beside me. I guess now she was a cocaptain, since Luc had essentially reassumed the position.
Seriously, our leadership structure was a mess. Seeing Noah again made my stomach clutch with nerves. I followed Ethan across wet grass and toward Noah. He stood in a clutch of black-clad vampires who looked like the type of Rogues I was familiar with.
Noah looked up as we moved closer, giving both of us slight nods of recognition. I was glad to hear you successfully managed Mallory and the Tate twins. The mansion was three stories tall, made of pale stone and iron ornamentation. Some of those homes were gone, and some had been split into apartments. A few still existed as single-family homes. You and yours have managed well enough. Ethan had told me the GP took an all-or-nothing approach to its membership—the vampires within its purview were members, or they were enemies.
But there was a time when the GP kept the lines between the Houses and the Rogues clearly marked and enforced those lines at sword point. So for now, let us eat, drink, and be merry. Ethan smiled slyly. Be nice to our new allies, Sentinel. My cheeks warmed.
Although God knows how that happened. We complement each other. Margot walked toward us with a tray of delicate crystal glasses shimmering with golden champagne. Nodding, I pulled one from the tray and took a hearty sip.
Noah did the same. When dinner was served, I joined Lindsey at a table beneath the tent. She was blond and fit, and incredibly bright. She also had a great sense of fashion, a piercing sense of humor, and a strong streak of loyalty, which had nearly tanked her burgeoning relationship with Luc. Across from us at the table were two Rogue vampires. Alan, who wore a button-down plaid shirt, looked as happily average as they came. Beth, who dressed with Gothic flare, was a tattoo artist with a shop in Wrigleyville and a part-time burlesque dancer.
She had dark, wavy hair and a curvy figure with a nipped-in waist, and she snorted a little bit when she laughed, which she did a lot.
Alan and Beth had recently met on an Internet dating site for Chicago vamps, and my mixer was their very first outing together. I took an obscene amount of pride in that, even though their finding each other had nothing to do with me. Ethan had made me a vampire to save my life. Membership in Cadogan House had been the side benefit.
Or cost, depending on your perspective. If anything, Cadogan was the least elitist House in Chicago. Navarre, in my humble opinion, was snootier, and the vampires of Grey House, which was all about athletics, had a built-in tendency to hang together. On the other hand, he was right that we were part of a club.
There were three hundred vampires associated with Cadogan House. We had positions and titles, rulebooks, and T-shirts and medals that proclaimed our membership to the world. Beth smiled. But we are now, have always been, and will continue to be a collective of vampires.
We have chosen to come together just as you have chosen to stand as proud individual vampires, and we respect your decisions to do so. We are searching for a new way to live and thrive as vampires. Maybe, unlike the GP, the Rogues would actually listen. Ethan looked down at the ground for a moment, his forehead wrinkling in the center. That was a sign he was worried, and when he looked up across the crowd again, the concern in his eyes was clear.
Recent events have been difficult for vampires and Chicago, and they may become more so. This week we take our stand. The chatter returned to normal levels, vampires digging back into their proteins while two of the most important vampires in the city made nice in front of their minions. Fanged or not, the man had a way with words. A vampire in his prime. He stopped behind my chair and held out a hand.
The entire table went silent. I gave him a sardonic look. Ethan was an equal-opportunity crush. He wiggled his fingers. That I did made it virtually impossible. Oh, my God, could he move. With moves that were a mix of swing and tango, he led me around the floor like a dance master, all the while keeping those ridiculously green eyes focused on me.
I even tried to put on a good show—or at least as good a show as pants and a fitted leather jacket would allow—to the surprise of Rogue and Cadogan vampires.
The rest of the world came rushing back in a roar of sound as the vampires on the margins of the dance floor burst into applause.
Ethan brought me back to my feet, my ponytail bobbing over a shoulder.
It was a move the crowd would mistake for a show of affection, which was a perfect bit of sleight of hand. But there were too many vampires in the crowd, and too much magical energy, for me to tell what trouble was brewing. He took my hand and, with smiles and waves to the crowd, stepped out of the spotlight. We slipped through the tent to reach Noah and the worried Rogues. Fear marked their expressions, and they radiated tense magic that made my skin feel tight from the contact.
Noah glanced among his Rogues, meeting the gaze of a female vampire with cropped hair and small silver spikes above both eyebrows.
Her look was edgy, but her tearstained eyes belied her appearance. She nodded at Noah, giving him approval for something. Rogue democracy at work. Noah paused, as if weighing a decision. We can speak there. Both of them followed us into the House.
We walked silently down the hallway, and Ethan closed the office door when we were all inside. Noah immediately headed toward the conversation area and took a seat in one of the leather club chairs there; the female vampire followed him. I took a seat on the opposite couch, and Ethan did the same. Start at the beginning, if you would. At some point the bar is under the attack of gunfire. Merit, as Sentinel, is supposed to be protecting the House ruler Sullivan.
In reality, Sullivan is the one to jump onto Merit and protect her from the gunfire. During the attack, Merit notices the cook is about to walk into the gunfire. She jumps out and saves the woman from any serious damage, sustaining a few injuries that heal quickly, but gaining appreciation and even respect from some of the shifters. The romance between Sullivan and Merit really picks up at this point. They stop by and pick up a world-famous Chicago pizza.
They take it back to Sullivan's room and open a bottle of wine. Merit has no thoughts in her mind about what is about to happen. They are enjoying the pizza when talk turns to how Sullivan put his life in danger for Merit.
Talk leads to them finally sleeping together. That night everything is perfect between Merit and Sullivan.
It's the next day that ruins everything. The next day, Merit and Sullivan go to yet another shifter meeting. It is there that Merit encounters a rough shifter.
The shifter starts to pick a fight with Merit. He starts to physically attack her when Sullivan steps in with a little to much power. This does not help the matters between shifters and vampires. The two leave shortly after the encounter. On the way home, Sullivan tells Merit that he can no longer have a personal relationship with her. Things are too complicated between the two of them. Sullivan is the leader of the House and needs to protect all of the vampires there.
But Merit makes him only want to protect her.
Ethan suggests that everything must be strictly professional between them. Things get to be a little crazy between Merit and Sullivan. There is constant tension between the two. The day after the break-up, Sullivan's old mistress Lacey Sheridan shows up.
This causes Merit to be pushed more towards the secret vampire society that Sullivan despises. Finally the day comes where the shifters decide to stay in Chicago. A number of different instances of violence come up. Merit helps put them to an end, but Sullivan speaks about his feelings towards Merit. Merit will have nothing to do with it. She tells him to stop. They are after all working strictly professional.
The night ends, and Keene remains alive.
The next day, Sullivan is hosting a party for their guest Sheridan. Sullivan and Merit have another talk inside his office. He once again tries to share how he feels with Merit. He tries to tell her how much he loves her and that the visit from Sheridan has been planned for months. The talk ends a little rough between the two. Merit leaves to go for a walk. On the walk, Keene's brother tells her to get into the limo with him because Gabriel is in danger. Once there, Merit realizes that this is a setup.
She talks Gabriel from killing her childhood friend and that his brother is setting them up. Merit witness's a shifter shifting into his animal. Gabriel and his brother get into a fight. Gabriel is the winner, but at the end of the fight Merit receives a page from the House. There was a breach into the house. Gabriel's brother informs them that he has sent all the mad shifter's to attack Sullivan's house.
Merit makes a quick call to the secret society of vampires and then heads over to the House. Once there, she moves her way slowly towards Sullivan. At first she cannot get through their special vampire connection of minds. Once through, Sullivan thanks God that she is safe.
Merit fights her way into Sullivan's office. The two fight back-to-back. They take out all the shifters and humans who pose a threat to them. Merit turns to Sullivan when he pulls her into an intense kiss. Later outside, Gabriel is making a public statement about shape shifters being real. There cover was blown by a fellow shifter healing himself. Now the world knows about shifters and vampires.
At the end of the novel, Sullivan visits Merit in her room. He goes into how he was wrong about them never being able to be a couple. Last night proved that they have great chemistry fighting together. Merit turned down the offer to join the society.
Her heart belongs to Sullivan's house and no other. Hard Bitten[ edit ] Cadogan House is being picketed by protestors and an ex-military man named McKetrick. During this, Ethan is summoned to Mayor Tate's mansion at Creeley Creek to discuss reports of an illegal rave that turned violent, leading to the deaths of three women.
Tate threatens Ethan with an arrest warrant if any more humans should be killed. Merit, with the help of Red Guard member Jonah, visits a rave, and finds a new drug called 'V' that wipes away the inhibitions of vampires making them moody and volatile. When she returns to Cadogan with news of more illegal raves, she bursts in on a meeting of Ethan and the Greenwich Presidium representative, Darius. A fight breaks out because of vampires using 'V,' and Merit is caught up in it, and questioned by the CPD and the Ombud's office.
Using Jeff's computer skills and the surveillance cameras, Merit is led to a criminal named Paulie, who works for Celina distributing 'V. She goes to confront them, and the mayor tells her her father paid Ethan to turn her into a vampire.
Ethan tries to explain, and Celina, high on 'V' and controlled by some unknown magic, tries to stake Merit. Ethan jumps in the way, and is killed; Merit then stakes Celina, killing her, as well.
Paulie and the mayor are both arrested for their part, and Cadogan House mourns the loss of their Master. After a week of self-pity, Mallory convinces Merit to ask her father if he paid Ethan off. Her father admits that he offered, but Ethan did not accept.
Celina heard about the offer and was jealous; she found a Rogue to kill Merit, and Ethan turned her. Drink Deep[ edit ] Clouds are brewing over Cadogan House, and recently turned vampire Merit can't tell if this is the darkness before the dawn or the calm before the storm. With the city itself in turmoil over paranormals and the state threatening to pass a paranormal registration act, times haven't been this precarious for vampires since they came out of the closet.
If only they could lay low for a bit, and try to let the mortals calm down. That's when the waters of Lake Michigan suddenly turn pitch black-and things really start getting ugly. Chicago's mayor insists it's nothing to worry about, but Merit knows only the darkest magic could have woven a spell powerful enough to change the very fabric of nature.
She'll have to turn to friends old and new to find out who's behind this, and stop them before it's too late for vampires and humans alike. You discover this is the work of Mallory and unfortunately this ultimately leads to her betrayal to Merit. The book ends with a resurrection and Ethan comes back to life. Biting Cold[ edit ] Turned into a vampire against her will, twenty-eight-year-old Merit found her way into the dark circle of Chicago's vampire underground, where she learned there was more to supernaturals than met the eye—and more supernaturals than the public ever imagined.
And not all the secrets she learned were for sharing—among humans or inhumans. Now Merit is on the hunt, charging across the stark American Midwest, tailing a rogue supernatural intent on stealing an ancient artifact that could unleash catastrophic evil on the world.
But Merit is also the prey. No mercy allowed. No rules apply. No lives spared. The race is on. After forcing them off the road, Tate leaves and hunts the book also.
Reaching the safety of the Orders Archivists house, Ethan and Merit face down a vengeful Mallory, who wreaks havoc before teleporting away. Realizing that Mallory and Tate have teamed up, and that Mallory was serving as a distraction for Tate, Ethan and Merit head back to the bunker, where they engage in a heated battle with Tate and Mallory but are unable to prevent Mallory from completing her spell and destroying the book, causing Tate to split in two.
After handing Mallory off to the shifters, who arrived to take the book, Ethan and Merit, along with the Archivist, hunt for clues to Tate's heritage. Eventually learning that Seth Tate was an angel possessed by a demon, his twin brother Domonic. As they hunt for Domonic, and come under closer scrutiny from Chicago's prejudiced major, Merit learns of an affair between Domonic and the queen of the fairies.
Eventually, with the queens help, they corner Domonic and together with Ethan, Mallory, and Catcher, Merit manages to capture Domonic, but before she can kill him, Seth stops her and requests that he do it himself, feeling responsible for the lives that Domonic has destroyed in his brief reign of terror.
The book ends with Seth killing Domonic with Merit's blade. During all this, Cadogan House must decide whether they truly need the Greenwhich Presidum.
House Rules[ edit ] At 28, 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.
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. The Greenwich Presidium is inventorying their house and is determined to leave Cadogan penniless as an object lesson to any other house wishing to leave or disobey their rules. When they are not satisfied with what they can wrangle out of Cadogan legally, based on the treaty signed by Peter Cadogan, they turn to force.
Bribing the fairies assigned to guard Cadogan onto their side with the promise of returning to them the Dragon's Egg , a item of great importance to the fairies that has been in Cadogan's possession for centuries, they attempt to bully Ethan and Merit and all their vampires out of their very home.
In the midst of this, Lacey Sheridan is back and determined to undermine Merits relationship with Ethan, Merit's affiliation with the Red Guard is revealed to Ethan and a crazed killer is on the loose and his target of choice is vampires. Juggling many crisis's at once, Merit uses her RG contacts to suss out the location of the "Dragon's Egg", returning it to Ethan, nullifying the fairies deal with the GP.
Ethan uses the attack to break out of the contract signed by Peter Cadogan by pointing out that the GP broke its word when it raised arms against Cadogan before Cadogan was officially outside the GP's protection, allowing him to keep everything.
Without allies and with the law on the side of their enemies, the GP leaves. Meanwhile, Merit uses her fathers contacts to hunt down the vampire killer, eventually uncovering a dark story of forced changes and torture leading back 95 years and that the killer is none other than the security consultant Ethan hired to protect Cadogan vampires against GP hostility. Just as they realize this, they receive an urgent phone call from the GP; Darius and another GP member have been captured by the crazed vampire and it is up to Merit, Ethan and Jonah to save them.
Biting Bad[ edit ] Merit has been a vampire for only a short while, but she's already seen a lifetime's worth of trouble. She and her Master, centuries-old Ethan Sullivan, have risked their lives time and again to save the city they love. But not all of Chicago is loving them back.
Anti-vampire riots are erupting all over town, striking vampires where it hurts the most.
