In the first thrilling installment of Chloe Neill’s spinoff to the New York Times bestselling Chicagoland Vampires series, a new vampire will find out just how deep blood ties run.

As the only vampire child ever born, some believed Elisa Sullivan had all the luck. But the magic that helped bring her into the world left her with a dark secret. Shifter Connor Keene, the only son of North American Central Pack Apex Gabriel Keene, is the only one she trusts with it. But she’s a vampire and the daughter of a Master and a Sentinel, and he’s prince of the Pack and its future king.

When the assassination of a diplomat brings old feuds to the fore again, Elisa and Connor must choose between love and family, between honor and obligation, before Chicago disappears forever.


In this new series we follow Elisa, Merit’s daughter and Ethan Sullivan as well as Connor, Gabriel Keene’s son. Elisa has a slight problem, which I let you discover by reading the story, we find the atmosphere of Chicago vampires but with a little something more. I really liked this book and I loved seeing Ethan, Merit, Luc, Kelley, Gabriel again even though I would have liked to see some people again, that’s not what’s important because I think they will appear later.

So we discover Elisa, who is on a mission with the Dumas house in Paris to make peace among all European vampires. For that she must return to Chicago because the Cadogan house is at the center of negotiations. She will find Lulu, Mallory and Catcher’s daughter who is also her best friend. She’ll find Connor who used to bother her when she was little but who has a lot of charm now. And she will meet new people, some very nice and others much less.

I loved Elisa, she has the character of her father mixed with that of her mother, she respects them both enormously. It made me feel weird to see Merit as a mother, so much for Ethan it doesn’t shock me, probably because he’s already kind of a father to all his vampires but for Merit it made me feel weird and I enjoyed it.

The plot is very interesting and I can’t wait to see what happens next because Elisa will have to work on herself and trust Connor. Will she go back to Paris or stay in Chicago or go somewhere else, I don’t know but I admit that I like the quartet Elisa, Theo, Connor and Lulu.

Quick Word: A first book that puts us in the mood, a very interesting next generation.


Dans cette nouvelle série nous suivons Elisa, la fille de Merit et Ethan Sullivan ainsi que Connor le fils de Gabriel Keene. Elisa a un léger souci, que je vous laisse découvrir en lisant l’histoire, on retrouve l’ambiance des vampires de Chicago mais avec un petit quelque chose de plus. J’ai beaucoup aimé ce livre et j’ai adoré revoir Ethan, Merit, Luc, Kelley, Gabriel même si j’aurais aimé revoir certaines personnes ce n’est pas ce qui est important car je pense qu’ils apparaitront plus tard.

Nous faisons donc la découverte d’Elisa, qui est en mission avec la maison Dumas de Paris afin de faire la paix entre tous les vampires européens. Pour cela elle doit revenir à Chicago car la maison Cadogan est au centre des négociations. Elle va retrouver Lulu, la fille de Mallory et Catcher qui est aussi sa meilleure amie. Elle va retrouver Connor qui l’embetait quand elle était petite mais qui a beaucoup de charme désormais. Et elle va faire la rencontre de nouvelles personnes, certaines très sympathiques et d’autres nettement moins.

J’ai adoré Elisa, elle a le caractère de son père mélangé à celui de sa mère, elle les respecte énormément tous les deux. Ça m’a fait bizarre de voir Merit mère, autant pour Ethan ça ne me choque pas, probablement parce qu’il est déjà père en quelque sorte, de tous ses vampires mais pour Merit ça m’a fait bizarre et j’ai apprécié.

L’intrigue est très intéressante et j’ai hâte de voir la suite car Elisa va devoir travailler sur elle-même et faire confiance à Connor. Va-t-elle repartir à Paris ou rester à Chicago ou aller ailleurs, je ne sais pas mais j’avoue que j’aime le quatuor Elisa, Théo, Connor et Lulu.

En bref : Un premier tome qui nous met dans l’ambiance, une relève très intéressante.
