{eARC Review} Dark Debt (Chicagoland Vampires #11) by Chloe Neill

Dark Debt (Chicagoland Vampires, #11)
Dark Debt (Chicagoland Vampires #11) by
A vampire never gets old. But neither do his enemies. When a figure from Ethan's dark past makes a splashy debut in Chicago, Merit and her Master don't know whether he's friend or foe. But they'll have to figure out soon, because trouble is brewing in the Windy City.

At an exclusive society soiree attended by the upper echelons of the human and supernatural worlds, Merit and Ethan barely stop the assassination of a guest. When the target turns out to be a shady businessman with a criminal edge, Merit suspects a human vendetta. But the assassins have fangs....

The connections to Chicago's Houses go deeper than Merit knows, and even one wrong move could be her last....

{Rating} 5/5 - I loved it!

 "There were two seasons in Chicago: winter and construction." (page 1, line 1)
Before I found the Chicagoland Vampire series I was tired of vampire books but Chloe Neill's series with a smart, bookish, clever girl turned vampire rekindled my love of the paranormal. Over the eleven books in the series - which I devoured - Merit has come into her own. She's the same sassy girl but as she faces new challenges, scary ones this time, she becomes more confident in her abilities.
In Dark Debt they face two foes, an unwelcome blast from Ethan's past and the mysterious foe that makes the team work hard to figure out how to save the day. All ends happily though, eventually, but there's excitement and action before we get there.
I love Ethan and Merit together, seeing the hard earned trust and commitment
All their challenges bring them closer instead of tearing them apart. There were some amusing moments too, Merit and Mallory's nickname accidentally comes out. Catcher and Mallory pop up too, I won't spoil it but they definitely bring the adorable.
If you haven't checked on the Chicagoland Vampire series go now and start reading, it has a smart, strong heroine, a well conceived world, interesting storylines, and memorable characters. I'm already eagerly awaiting the next installment.
