Image of Some Girls Bite (Chicagoland Vampires)

There's a new talent in town, and if this debut is any indication, she's here to
stay! Not only does Neill introduce an indomitable and funny heroine, her secondary characters are enormously intriguing and make terrific foils. While the tone of this first-person Chicagoland Vampire series starter is generally light, there is an undercurrent of danger. Truly excellent!

Grad student Merit's life shifts radically when she's attacked. A vampire rips at her throat, but she's saved and turned by master vampire Ethan Sullivan of the Cadogan house. Chicago vampires have only recently announced their existence, and the populace is still adjusting. Not thrilled that she had no say in her turning, Merit is certainly not one to bow and scrape, which explains why she inadvertently challenges Ethan. A mystery vampire killing girls spells big trouble for the vampire world. Then Merit receives a death threat. (NAL, Apr., 352 pp., $14.00)
