About the Author

Chloe Neill, author of the Chicagoland Vampires novels (Dark Debt, Blood Games, Wild Things), the Dark Elite novels (Charmfall, Hexbound, Firespell), and the Devil’s Isle novels (The Veil), was born and raised in the South but now makes her home in the Midwest—just close enough to Cadogan House, St. Sophia’s, and Devil’s Isle to keep an eye on things. When not transcribing Merit’s, Lily’s, and Claire’s adventures, she bakes, works, and scours the Internet for good recipes and great graphic design. Chloe also maintains her sanity by spending time with her boys—her favorite landscape photographer (her husband) and their dogs, Baxter and Scout. (Both she and the photographer understand the dogs are in charge.)

Each novel draws me in farther, the characters mess and grow with each book. I am sad to hear that the series will be coming to completion with the next book. What a better way to leave though with readers wanting more!

As always Neill did not disappoint with the newest Merit story. It was good to see Merit and Ethan working with Mallory and Catcher. Would have loved a little more of Jeff's humor along the way. The story was full of plenty of action, humor, romance and surprises. I was thrilled with the ending as well.

In this twelfth and penultimate book of the Chicagoland Vampire Series, Merit and Ethan once again are fighting to save their city from an evil overlord who would rule them all. The fact their enemy, Adrien Reed, is a mere human does not make him any less dangerous since he seems to control some very deadly supernaturals. He runs not only the Chicago business world, but also the criminal underground group known as the Circle. This new fight involves all the supernatural groups including vampires, weres, and the sorcerers. The focus in Midnight Marked is mostly on fighting Reed’s various ploys to create havoc and instability which includes finding his sorcerer who is using magical alchemy to create a way to control the city and its inhabitants, human and supernatural alike. Merit and Ethan have come a long way in their stop and start relationship; they finally seem to be doing well; however, family and supernatural allies have had a way of coming between them, and Midnight Marked is no exception. Merit’s relationship with her father has always been prickly so throwing her arrogant, stubborn Master vampire in the mix between them makes the situation even more volatile. Their tenuous relationship with Gabriel Keene, who also has some family issues, and his werewolves is once again strained as it seems part of Adrien Reed’s goal is to set them against each other. Merit also continues to have issues with the Red Guard and they with her plus the drama with her partner, Jonah, adds to the explosive emotional mix. Since this is the next to last book, not surprisingly, some previous elements come together from the series including information about Merit’s original attack, Ethan’s somewhat annoying faux proposals, and Merit’s relationship with her family. Neither Ethan nor Merit are easy people, and the fact that they work together as well as being in a relationship continues to present obstacles and opportunity for strife for them as a couple. One big surprise will please fans of the series and set up the last book to come. I will miss this couple and maybe by book thirteen, I might forgive Chloe Neill for Hard Bitten…or not. Vampires are not the only ones with long memories. 

Chloe Neill is a damn fine author. Chicagoland is definitely one of the best series out there, and Midnight Marked is one of the best of a wonderful series.

This is one of those series, where you either stay with it until the most recent book or the final book. Or you just lost interest. I'll be honest, as the series went along, while I love it, there was moments where I was starting to get a little bored. But I kept with it because I love these books and the characters. Also the covers are gorgeous and well done. Anyway, with this installment I liked it alright. It had more Gabriel Keene so thank you for that book. Also I was going to give this a 3.5 but thought 4 rating was better because I still want to read more from this series. Also near the end that was kind of adorable. Good sequel at least.

3.5 Stars Reviewed by Annie and posted at Under The Covers Book Blog Merit has been a vampire for a year now. She’s gained some incredible friends and learned a ton of skills that she never would’ve otherwise. Some incredible things have happened over the several books of the series but I feel like despite being in the midst of a supernatural war, Merit and Ethan have kind of settled down a little bit. A murder has occurred and it looks like it’s been done by one of them. That’s not good news when the tension between Houses is already brimming. After a brief update on Catcher and Mallory in the beginning, Neill goes straight into the action. A lot of the story focuses on the murder mystery with some twists along the way. Ethan remains to be an enigma, never revealing too much but enough to stay alluring. My only complaint is that since we’re twelve books into the series, I would love a little more insight into his character. I feel like we have hit a plateau with his character and I would love something that would once again engage readers. In terms of the romance, I do feel that Merit and Ethan have reached that comfortable stage in a relationship. The last books have been a little more steady. I wouldn’t mind seeing Neill shake things up a bit here as well. I do sense that the end is near but a little extra drama wouldn’t hurt the series.

What can I say, I’m a Chloe Neill fan and I flat out love her storytelling. Midnight Marked, for me, was a marvelous adventure in the masterfully developed Chicagoland Vampire world. Ethan’s creator, thought long dead, has returned and wants what he thinks his due…everything Ethan has which includes Cadogan house and Merit. Has Ethan grown powerful enough in the past few centuries to take on his master? You are about to find out. Merit has never backed down from a challenge but it seems Ethan’s master has learned a few new tricks…like invading Merit’s dreams. But this past master isn’t the only enemy coming back to haunt Merit and Ethan, greed and grudges have carried over from one that is truly dead, putting all the houses at risk and another focusing their machinations on vampires and the power. If that isn't enough, it seems that there are strange, magical, sacrificial murders occurring throughout the city of Chicago. Merit must uncover the plot before the fragile balance in the supernatural world unravels. I love how Merit and Ethan have become a well-oiled partnership, that support each other’s strengths and compensate for their weeknesses. Although…their choices for food may not always jive they have the perfect partnership. I half wonder where Neill might take us next. The prophecy of a vampire child looms with the portent of a great sacrifice hanging over their heads. We’ve seen so many changes and amazing characters’ growth. I wouldn’t have given up one second of this adventure and highly recommend any urban fantasy fan to check out the Chicagoland Vampires. I simply loved having an opportunity to dive back into this world with Midnight Marked, its a ride no one should miss. I received this ARC copy of Midnight Marked from Berkley Publishing Group - NAL in exchange for a honest review.
