Saturday Pages: Wild Things by Chloe Neill!!

Hello everyone! This week's Saturday Pages start with a review for the ninth book on a series that I'm still absolutely loving!  This one is once again a "me" read, not part of any of the challenges I'm taking part of this year.

Wild Things: A Chicagoland Vampires NovelWild Things: A Chicagoland Vampires Novel by Chloe Neill

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Chicagoland Vampires is one of the few series that are still ongoing that I'm still happily reading, following and enjoying, and hopefully will continue to do so for a while!

Ethan is now wanted by the police and justice of Chicago, wrongly accused of being guilty of everything that is going on in the city by the new (and even crazier than before) human mayor. So they ask the help of the Pack, and they end up in the guest house of the Breckenridge's. Gabe, the leader of the pack has them under his protection there, and invites them along with Mallory and Catcher to be guests at the Lupercalia festival.

That's when things start to get dicey, when very strange creatures that no longer exist attack everyone there for the celebration. Merit & Ethan along with Mallory and Catcher not only do their bit on the fight but are the ones to finally vanquish the attack, but they are also considered suspect of having brought the attack to the Lupercalia, so half requested and half volunteered, Merit will start her investigation to see who or what is behind that attack.

This book has all the things I love in this series, and now finally has Mallory and Merit working together as friends and as a team, and I love seeing this new awesome Mallory, finally learning about magic not as a tool of power but as something that's part of her and that can be something wonderful and helpful.

The humour is always fantastic and the dynamics between Merit and Ethan are both swoon worthy and hilarious! I love how they both have equal power in their relationship, as Master and Sentinel, and as fighters and lovers.

The plot is once again not limited to one line only, we have vampire politics with a very unexpected offer for Ethan, the mayor continuining to turn the people of Chicago against the vampires, an unknown threat and an old race of people pissed demanding reparations. And if all of that wasn't enough, Merit goes on to looking a lemon-cookie-smelling old "friend".

The book doesn't end with a cliffhanger but it does leave you wanting to read more about what's to come and the new and growing challenges for Ethan as Master Vampire and Merit as his Sentinel! Very well deserved 4 stars for this one!
