Blade Bound by Chloe Neill

The thrilling final installment of Chloe Neill’s New York Times bestselling urban fantasy series sees sinister sorcery advancing across Chicago, and it might usher in the fall of Cadogan House....
 
 
Since the night of her brutal attack and unwilling transformation into a vampire, Merit has stood as Sentinel and protector of Chicago’s Cadogan House. She’s saved the Windy City from the forces of darkness time and again with her liege and lover, Ethan Sullivan, by her side.
 
When the House is infiltrated and Merit is attacked by a vampire who seems to be under the sway of dark magic, Merit and Ethan realize the danger is closer than they could have imagined. As malign sorcery spreads throughout the city, Merit must go to war against supernatural powers beyond her comprehension. It is her last chance to save everything—and everyone—she loves.

About the Author

Chloe Neill, author of the Chicagoland Vampires novels (Midnight Marked, Dark Debt, Blood Games), the Dark Elite novels (Charmfall, Hexbound, Firespell), and the Devil’s Isle novels (The Sight, 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.)

I really enjoyed the Chicagoland Vampire stories, but there are a few minor complaints I have with them. One of them is the observation on how many things, and people are awake and doing things at might and all night. Apparently everyth8ng In Chicagoland happens only at night. Okay I'll give the author artistic license for that, but there is one other thing that is kind of a deal breaker for me. Almost all the nights in Chicagoland are as long as night in the artic circle. I mean , COME ON there is usually NO reason why Ms Neill couldn't have some of the events occur over the course of more than one night. It was a constant distraction to me to have to mentally stretch events into a more rreasonable period of time. And it would have been relatively easy to write those events to occur in a more believable period of time. Finaly I have one observation to make. Aspen bullet rounds? Aspen stakes? Two words, Body Armor. Other than those minor complaints these books were very enjoyable. Read them all!

Loved Chicagoland series and this one did not steer me wrong. Action packed, suspense, romance, humor. Top notch paranormal. The epilogue could have been extended chapters. There was a lot to take in. Thank you for a great read

It’s finally Merit and Ethan’s wedding and all they want is for everything to right, which it does, until just after the reception. Now they must battle even more evil forces once and for all. This was the final installment of Merit’s story. From start to end, the book was great. As with all of the Chicagoland Vampire stories, the story was great from start to end. I’ve loved following Merit and Ethan through all of their adventures and I will be sorry to see them go. I look forward to reading more from this author. **I voluntarily read and reviewed this book

I've loved this series from the beginning and this is the conclusion. The story is wrapped up in a quite satisfying way. Most of the loose ends are tied up, though there are seeds for more books as spin-offs! And that is a very good thing!!

Blade Bound, the last book in the Chicagoland Vampires series was more than I ever hoped it would be! Loved the Bachelorette Party, very innovative. And the wedding, spectacular. The Master & his Sentinel have come a long way since their first meeting on the U of C campus. Their fight to save the City of Chicago was a riveting, edge-of-your-seat thriller. I won't give out any spoilers, but one part had me cheering out loud! However, as a native Chicagoan, I was very distraught at the devastation wrecked my city, especially my lions! And the ending, well, was precious. I am looking forward to Chloe Neil's new spin-off series due out in 2018. Hopefully there will be some mentions of The Duchess & Darth Sullivan!

Oh I loved this book so much. It was full of the action you have come to expect but it also took some twists and turns. While I am sad to see this series come to an end I think the characters all got their own kind of closure to the story and I am exited about the spinoff series. I hope as we see the new characters develop we get to visit the old.

I've always had an issue with this and similar books where the main character is a new supernatural of some sort and yet manages to do all the things that the old, hundreds of years old, others can't. How? Why are they so different? How come they never have all the stumbling blocks new vampires, werewolves, dragons et al do? And that's what got me a bit irritated, that it seemed like each story was Merit Saves The Day Yet Again * Sigh * and I stopped. Then saw this on netgalley, wondered how the series would end, got approved and needed to play catch up and buy the previous four books I'd not read #slappedwrist Reading the last five back to back it felt very much as if I was reading the same story, just tinkered with...and that brought back memories of Sookie S when I felt the same :-( that perhaps the series would have been better cut back a few books. There's only so many new discoveries two new supernaturals like Merit and Mallory can make. I guess its down to two sides, group A wants more about Ethan Merit and the crew whatever the issues, they just want to read more and don't care about the feeling of repetition. So here we are, full circle in a way with Gabriel's prophecy still hanging in Ethan and Merit's minds. Actually the way that got explained/came about was well done IMO, something that made sense in the way that magic and fantasy can make a kind of sense. That bit of fantasy-reality that has you thinking "oh yes, so that happened, and therefore this was able to come about". We start this book with pre wedding celebrations, and from there its yet again another magical puzzle to solve, Chicago under threat, calls for supernaturals to take all the blame, humans decrying it's Not Their Fault, let the supes take the blame. They've short memories when it comes to recalling that many of the past problems came about through human greed, and the supernaturals risked much to save human lives. So much felt like I'd read it all before in those last few books. It was well written, tightly plotted and made sense in the way it played out but....it didn't feel fresh, unique, the way those first ones did.  There's lots of drama once more, some of Mallory's on-the-fly magic combined with lots of theory and Catcher's voice of reason - I love his character. We haven't seen much of Gabriel these last few books, he's here but in very minor position, and I'd really have liked all the supernaturals to have pulled together for the Big Battle. Finally the RG get more involved but once more looking back to the beginning I always thought they'd play a greater part. I guess I'd just have a better chance of believing things will work in the future for everyone if they'd all been working on the solution, rather than Cadogan house, Mallory, Catcher and the Ombuddies. A year of manic mayhem, scary deaths, tragedies, violence, disaster and suddenly everyone will live peacefully? What happens when the next issue arises? Will Ethan and Merit pick up their Katanas once more and wade in or claim other responsibilities, let someone else sort it? If all forces had joined in this last book and been part of the solution I'd have believed they'd have a better chance of peace. ARC supplied for review purposes by Netgalley and Publishers

The perfect story to a series ending. I have loved Ethan and Merit' story since the beginning, and this book reminds me why. The author's words are strong, the characters are all in here that we have met over the entire series. Nothing for Merit is ever easy so why would marrying her Master, Her love be any easier? No such thing as a honeymoon when you are Sentinel, and the city needs you. This story leaves us with a wonderful ending, and I for one am so sad to see it end. I am sure you can read this book without having read any others, but you won't know the characters, so I suggest you start your journey with book one.

This thirteenth book is the big finish for the Chicagoland Vampires series. Readers who have been along for this wild ride have been though many trials and tribulations with Merit, Ethan, and their friends in each book of the series. There are always high expectations for grand finales and for the most part, this book meets them. We have seen quite a build-up to Merit and Ethan’s engagement and wedding; happily, the actual event does not disappoint. The wedding was really very well done and left a tear or two in my eye. Vampires and Merit’s prominent parents know how to throw a wedding in high style. And because this is Merit, you know things will not stay calm or sane very long. Everyone in Chicago, supernatural and humans alike, has been on edge since the evil sorceress Sorcha disappeared. When people start behaving strangely as an unknown power focuses a mental attack causing chaos and bizarre behavior, it seems to be a harbinger of her return. All of Chicago is now at risk and when the wicked witch roars back onto the scene, everything that held promise for Merit and Ethan, including Gabriel’s prophecy for a vampire child, is put in danger. Every one of Merit, Ethan, as well as Mallory and Catcher’s, skills will be tested in this epic battle. All of the supernatural community as well as the humans has a part to play in this as for once, they work together to save their city. The action is intense and as usual, Merit takes things and her life to the brink much to Ethan’s dismay. The vampires and other supernaturals are still dealing with some prejudice and blame, but finally there seems to be some genuine cooperation happening with the politicos including the mayor who has mostly just given them grief and placed responsibility for the cities’ problems until recently on them. While there are some twists and turns, this book is mainly about bringing the storyline to fruition in a satisfying way. All in all, BLADE BOUND gives a good end to the series with an epilogue that shows a glimpse of their life to come with all of its interesting possibilities.

So sad to see it end. When I figured out it was the last one, I tried to read it slower. Didnt work.
