Book Breakdown 

Thanks to NetGalley for this ARC in exchange for my honest review. 

The civil war, the saddest war, the war that cost so many lives. So many people died on the battle field fighting for what they believed in, even though the South were a bunch of.... anyway. 

This books goes over 160 locations, showing the paranormal happenings there. It's very well put together and easy to read. It has some much info inside and yet it reads almost like novel. So easy to follow along. I loved that about this book. 

If you love the paranormal this one is for you! There's really nothing else I can say besides, but this book! 

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 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.

Book Breakdown 

Yes. Yes! YES!!!

There will be spoilers all in this review. You have been warned. 

I knew he'd come back somehow, I saw the cover of the last book and have been spoiled a little bit for the ending. I just didn't know how it wold happen. I couldn't stand not having Ethan in this book for the most part. I missed him so freaking much! 

I liked the plot in this one, it was a different then the rest but I loved how Merit was learning to be on her own or work with a new partner. Though honestly, I'm just so happy that Ethan is back. I feel the series can move forward now as this one in some ways felt like a filler book but I still loved it to pieces. This is the last audiobook with the narrator that I have fallen in love with which bites.
