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.
I loved how this book was set up, it gives a glimpse of the childhood of Elisa and Gabriel, which was adorable. Since I am a sucker for stories of childhood friends falling in love, so I was really excited and looking forward to the romance. However, given the situation the romance was a little awkward and a bit underwhelmed, but I expected it to warm up and developing as the series goes. The dynamic and the familiarity between Elisa and Gabriel were great to read about, even though they have not been around each other for a long time, but the relationship has established since they were children. So there were obvious history between them, and that was something special. Aside for the romance, which was not the main focus of this book, there were plenty of actions and supernatural politic dramas that keep the story at a good pace. The characters that were introduced were great, both primary and secondary. It was also fun to read about the characters from the Chicagoland Vampire series in a different perspective.
Overall, I thought this was a good start of a new series! The story plot may be a little predictable, but Wild Hunger is a good mixture of PNR and UF, which are two of my favorite genres! I look forward to read the next book of the series!
