It was a shock to realise that ‘Blood Games’ is book 10 in the Chicagoland Vampires series – and book 11 has been out for months.
I’d held off getting 10 (or 11) because whilst I like the series I am not convinced that each book actually offers very much new stuff. For example the series can be summed up as having several core themes:
- There is a big bad who usually lasts for a couple of books
- Merit eats a lot of food
- Mallory and Catcher are in it a tiny bit
- There is usually some other supporting cast who bob about for a bit – ‘Blood Games’ didn’t even feature the shapeshifters!
- Ethan annoys Merit, they then make up.
That is pretty much it and I really should be getting bored by now, however I found myself inhaling ‘Blood Games’ in one sitting.
It isn’t even as if I learn anything from these books – except having super friends is just so super… which lets be honest didn’t need 10 books to hammer home.
I know that I will probably want to read book 11 but I am going to try very hard to wait until it drops in price or I need a present from the in-laws.
