Review: Wild Hunger



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.


Warning! Mild spoilers below.


I know it has not been that long but I have to admit that its great to be back in this wonderful world of the Chicagoland Vampires series that Chloe Neill. Sure we do not have Merit as the main heroine anymore but Chloe Neill gives us her daughter, Elisa Sullivan, who quickly shows us that she’s just as tough and brave as her parents.

Wild Hunger starts off with Elisa Sullivan not in Chicago but in Paris. The reason for that is Elisa wanted to have a life of being normal. That’s not easy when you are the first vampire to be born in existence and so she decided to study abroad in Paris. Not to mention that Elisa also had another reason for wanting to leave home. Now finished with her schooling,  Elisa is now serving a year in service to the French House that sponsored her in her schooling and training. However, Elisa soon finds herself heading back home for the first time in four years when she has to escort and guard delegates from her French House to Chicago. The reason is Cadogan House is hosting a peace summit for the European Houses who are still in turmoil and are constantly fighting for power. However, as always, talk of peace don’t go well as you hope especially when a murder occurs during the talks. Now Elisa has to track down a killer because she’s not going to let one of her friends take the fall or let the killer have his or her way and ruin the peace summit.

Overall, Wild Hunger was a fantastic story and a great first installment to a new series! I was worried that the old generation would overshadow Elisa and her group but it was the opposite since we only saw glimpse of the old characters. So kudos to Chloe Neill for that wonderful job. Connor Keene, son of Gabriel the shifter Apex, was not what I expected but I love him already along his banter relationship with Elisa. Seriously, these two can give Merit and Ethan a run on complicated relationship. Look forward to seeing them grow closer. Lulu Bell, Mallory and Catcher’s daughter, was also treat and I can’t wait to see more of her as well! Chloe Neill certainly did an excellent job with this new generation of characters and I’m excited to see what’s in store for them in this series. So I highly recommend fans of the Chicagoland Vampire series to go get Wild Hunger asap because you really do not want to miss this enjoyable installment and the begining of a new generation.
