Biting Bad (Chicagoland Vampires, #8)

Biting Bad (Chicagoland Vampires, #8) - Chloe Neill The beginning of Biting Bad was a bit ho-hum for me. Merit and Mallory meet over pizza at Saul's when they learn Bryant Industries, local distributor of Blood4You, has been hit by protester group "Clean Chicago". From there things progress as you'd expect. Valentine's Day is approaching and the recent chaos in the city is going to cause Merit and Ethan to scrub their date. Yada yada yada.Up until about the 60% mark, I was able to walk away from the book with no problem. The second half of the book is where things picked up and actually became interesting. I read straight through at that point, anxious to find out whodunnit and why, and was left with an ending that has me looking forward to [b:Wild Things|12958042|Wild Things (Chicagoland Vampires, #9)|Chloe Neill|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1370886480s/12958042.jpg|18115366] in Feb 2014. Sadly, the past several books have gone that way for me. They start out just okay, a bit meh, but by the end I'm once again looking forward to the next book. Seems to be a sad recurrence with books within the series lately. I wish the whole book was as exciting as the last half. {Rating: 3.5★}
