Elisa Sullivan is one of a kind, the only vampire child ever born, thanks to dark magic some 23 years ago that nearly destroyed Chicago. Now she's leaving Paris to return to help negotiate peace talks for the vampires. But danger accompanies her journey back to Chicago as the magic that resulted in her birth also gave her a dark power that is difficult to control. The only one who knows her secret is Connor Keene, future king of the North American Central Pack and her childhood friend. As Elisa struggles with her adult standing in her family, the assassination of a vampire diplomat is blamed on the shifters, and old feuds find new outlets. Elisa knows the truth lies elsewhere, and she and Connor must put aside differences and family obligations before the peace talks fall apart and Chicago disappears.
VERDICT Fans of Neill's "Chicagoland Vampires" series will rejoice to see the next generation in their own spin-off. Featuring her trademark snarky characters and colorful backgrounds, this is a fun and action-packed urban fantasy launch.
