Guest Blog and Giveaway with Chloe Neill

Today we have a special guest post from author Chloe Neill, uhm, scratch that- today we have a guest post from Mallory- Merit's BFF in the Chicagoland Vampire Series.

However if you read Friday Night Bites then you know that Mallory and Merit had a little falling out. Will they make up in Twice Bitten?

Read on to find out, if this doesn't answer your question then you'll have to read Twice Bitten (which is a fabulous book by the way, did you happen to see my review of it on Wednesday)

The View from My World by Mallory Delancey Carmichael

[Ed. Note - Assuming the following conversation takes place after Friday Night Bites.]

Since Jeff and Catch had a chance to share their views of why they should have their own "Teams," I figured I'd take this opportunity to talk about the vampire thing.

And by the vampire thing I mean, of course, the My-Best-Friend's-Now-A-Vampire thing.

I mean, she always has an opportunity to talk to you about that stuff since the books are written from her perspective, right? But I don't think you really have my side of it. *Takes breath* So here goes . . .

Let me start by admitting that "Daddy" comment was totally uncalled for. I know it now, and I knew it when the words flew out of my mouth. But I was mad, you know? She became a vampire, and got ensconced in this whole Buffy world, and I'm sent to Schaumburg to talk about magic with some gazillion year-old sorcerer.

(Ok--in fact, total blond hottie, but does Catch need to know that? Mighty big "no.")

Anywho, I just felt like I'd been kind of . . . well . . . abandoned, you know? I mean, I get that she has all sorts of new drama to deal with, Darth Sullivan included, but I just found out I'm a sorceress.

Yeah, *sorceress*. Let that one sink in for a minute.

So I'm able to move matter around by willing it to happen? Change events by willing them to happen? Prophecy the future because I get into some kind of insight-groove. Can you imagine learning that about yourself? Maybe that's the time you need your BFF at your side.

I mean, I was there for her, right?

*Pauses quietly*

I don't know. I love Merit--don't get me wrong. I just miss her, I guess.


I guess time will tell.

I like both Ethan and Morgan,each for different reasons. I just haven't figured out which on is my favorite yet. Maybe Twice Bitten will help me pick a side.

I cannot even tell you how badly I want to read this book! Only a few more days:)

No team for me. Some days I think Ethan is the vamp for Merit and while others I think Morgan is more of a match.

Until Twice Bitten I was more of a Morgan girl but let me tell you Ethan shines in Twice Bitten in a way he has not before- yet he makes a few blunders that slide him back down a few notches.

The interaction between Merit and Ethan is really intense in this book - ya'll are going to love it.

Gabrielle Lee said...

I would love to read this book and pick a side!

I like Ethan more, because he is so stubborn and a tad bit immature? I was hurt by Morgan's "betrayal" (maybe it is or not). We'll see.
