Since the night of her brutal attack and unwilling transformation into a vampire, Merit has stood as Sentinel and protector of Chicago’s Cadogan House. She’s saved the Windy City from the forces of darkness time and again with her liege and lover, Ethan Sullivan, by her side.
When the House is infiltrated and Merit is attacked by a vampire who seems to be under the sway of dark magic, Merit and Ethan realize the danger is closer than they could have imagined. As malign sorcery spreads throughout the city, Merit must go to war against supernatural powers beyond her comprehension. It is her last chance to save everything—and everyone—she loves.
Blade Bound is the final installment for Merit and Ethan. For me, it was the perfect way to end their journey. It brought their story full circle. I loved how it had references to when they first met and how their love evolved. I couldn’t put this book down and even though I loved the ending, I still didn’t want it to be over.
Merit has grown so much even though it had only been a year. She had discovered what she was capable of and found the love of her life. She has an inner strength and loyalty that really matches no other.
I love Ethan. He has also grown since meeting Merit. He had learned how love affects people and how it effects everything in his life. Ethan has always known what Merit is made of and made sure that she had the opportunity to become the person she was meant to be.
Blade Bound also had all the characters that we have grown to love throughout this series. From Luc and Lindsey, Jeff and Merit’s grandfather to Catcher and Mallory. And yes Catcher is still tying to get a Lifetime movie made out of their story.
This story has everything in it that makes the Chicagoland Vampire Series so great. I really like how it highlights that fact that the humans and vampires still do not have a great relationship but the vampires will find a way to save the city. I also couldn’t get enough of their wedding. It touched on everything that makes them so great together. I’m sad that this series has ended but I’m looking forward to the spinoff series and hope for some cameos.
