You'd think Merit would have earned a vacation by now. The stunning resurrection of her friend and master Ethan, the fall of her friend Mallory to the temptations of dark magic, and a battle for the survival of Chicago itself have left her a bit wrung out. There's no rest for the Sentinel of Cadogan House, however, as her household is working to separate itself from the rule of ancient European vampires--and a vicious serial killer is on the loose, hunting and murdering vampires even in their homes.
No, rest is not in the cards…From official release/information:
In a city full of vampires, trouble never sleeps.
At the tender age of twenty-seven, Merit became a sword-wielding vampire. Since then, she's become the protector of her House, watched Chicago nearly burn to the ground, and seen her Master fall and rise. Now she'll see her mettleÂ—and her metalÂ—tested like never before.
It started with two . . . Two rogues vanishing without a trace. Someone is targeting Chicago's vampires, and anyone could be next. With their house in peril, Merit and her Master, the centuries-old Ethan Sullivan, must race to stop the disappearances. But as they untangle a web of secret alliances and ancient evils, they realize their foe is more familiar, and more powerful, than they could have ever imagined.
