Review: Wild Hunger by Chloe Neil
Wild Hunger (Heirs of Chicagoland #1) by Chloe Neill
Publication Date: August 14th, 2018
Rating: 5 stars
In the first thrilling installment of Chloe Neill's spinoff to the New York Times bestselling Chicagoland Vampires series, a new vampire will find out just how deep blood ties run.
As the only vampire child ever born, some believed Elisa Sullivan had all the luck. But the magic that helped bring her into the world left her with a dark secret. Shifter Connor Keene, the only son of North American Central Pack Apex Gabriel Keene, is the only one she trusts with it. But she's a vampire and the daughter of a Master and a Sentinel, and he's prince of the Pack and its future king.
When the assassination of a diplomat brings old feuds to the fore again, Elisa and Connor must choose between love and family, between honor and obligation, before Chicago disappears forever.
The moment I saw that Chloe Neil was coming out with a spin-off series to The Chicagoland Vampire Series, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. I’ve been following the story of Ethan and Merit for what it seems like forever, so of course I wanted to dive right into the story of their daughter.
I’ll start off this review by saying, Chloe Neil did not disappoint.
I was hooked from page one (as with all her books) and I literally did not want to stop reading for anything. With this new series, of course you’re still getting a lot of what made The Chicagoland Vampires Series, but you’re also getting a new dose, a new taste of what’s to come with Wild Hunger. There are new characters, new threats, and naturally, new loves.
Elisa Sullivan is everything I imagined she would be, but she’s also nothing I expected. There is always a moment in book, where I think I have the character pinned down, but with Elisa, she kept me guessing. I can see her growing with each book as well, and I highly appreciate that in characters.
Wild Hunger is a definite must read, and one that I’m so glad I finally had the chance to read. I strongly recommend reading this one, even if you haven’t read The Chicagoland Vampires Series. Wild Hunger can be read as a standalone, so that’s always a plus.
