Wild Hunger – Chloe Neill


Wild Hunger – Chloe Neill



I love the beginning of a new series. The possibilities and introductions. Finding out who is who and what side they belong to, good or evil. I was also looking forward to reading my first vampire/werwolf fantasy this year.

The author, Chloe Neill, is a seasoned writer. With an eye to detail she built an imaginative world that easily confirms why readers love her books so much. Wild Hunger, the first book in a spin off series, based on her acclaimed  Chicagoland Vampires, featured Elisa, daughter of Ethan and Merit, and Connor, son of the werwolf apex of Chicago. They grew up together, and the familiarity and comfort they felt around each other was plainly evident. It was a unique setup, which I greatly enjoyed. Because of their long acquaintance and friendship, there was this subtle understanding that really helped move the slow burn romance along.

Maybe because it was a first novel, the author introduced a slew of characters, that unfortunately  became a little overwhelming at times. And the dark secret that Elisa was fighting to control fizzled out before it blew my mind. But that doesn’t mean that it might not turn into more in the upcoming books. I just hate it when the big revelation isn’t anything special. Especially if it’s a fantasy novel. I expect authors to blow my mind. Because possibilities are endless in a fantasy world.

But all in all I enjoyed Wild Hunger and I’m truly interested in seeing Elisa and Connor’s journey continue. iWild Hunger was a solid performance by the author, not perfect, but a great beginning to a new series that certainly intrigued me enough to keep on reading.

Phoenix Unbound – Grace Draven

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.

  1. I can’t wait for this one because I loved the original series. Great review! I also hate when there is such a huge attention dedicated to a secret which in the end turns out to be lack luster. I never go into the first book of an UF/PNR series with too big expectations beacsue they ususally consist of character and world introductions the juicy stuff comes after 1 or 2 books.

    1. That’s an excellent point!!! When I think about it the first books in my favorite UF series were never my favorite books either. I hope you’ll love this series, it sounds very promising! 😊

  2. OMG, once again you already have in advance one of the books I’m dying to read! (even if I still have to catch up on the last books of the Chicagoland Vampires). I am so envious! 😉
    Cool review.

    1. Haha – July was the month of Fantasy – I read at least 5 UF ARCs 🤣 keep your eyes open, there is a good chance I’m giving away a copy of Wild Hunger.😊
