Time after time as Sentinel of Chicago's Cadogan Houses, vampire Merit has protected her city, her House, and her liege Ethan Sullivan from danger. Now Merit faces one of the greatest challenges of undead life: her wedding to Ethan. Then a seemingly deranged vampire gets into Cadogan and attacks Merit. It turns out dark magic is infiltrating the city. Even with powerful friends by their sides, Merit and Ethan must take on a force of immeasurable power, and that still may not be enough. For it will not just be Cadogan House that falls, but the city of Chicago and its people.
VERDICT With loose ends neatly tied up, this final installment (after Midnight Marked) of Neill's consistently strong urban fantasy series will happily satisfy its many followers. [See Prepub Alert, 10/31/16.]
