    For the first time, Ethan graces the cover of a CV novel. I'm gonna dieeeee.IT'S THE LAST BOOK.
  • Beth
    Merit and Ethan have had their ups and downs and have always come out on top but now they are up against some ancient magics that might just do them in for good. Vampires, werewolves, sorcery oh my! What more could a girl ask for? It is undeniable that Ethan’s and Merit’s love is a love that will survive the test of time...making it even harder to say goodbye to Merit, Ethan and crew. Neill has created a bunch of characters, primary as well a...
  • Carmel (Rabid Reads)
    Reviewed by: Rabid Reads.For me to feel completely satisfied with the CHICAGOLAND VAMPIRES' conclusion, Chloe Neill needed to do three things: 1. Give Merit & Ethan their HEA. 2. Wrap-up the final arc. 3. Go out in style. Did BLADE BOUND pull it off? Yes, yes, and YES! I liked that the author wasted no time in getting with the weddingpocalypse, and that it wasn't rushed for pacing reasons or ruined by sorcery. I'd expected the book to end on this...

    Boring. There's not much point even mentioning the plot, it was the same rehashed cheesy-supernatural-villain-with-no-personality-does-evil-things-so-Merit-and-the-gang-save-the-day-and-nobody-but-the-bad-guys-die rubbish.Merit was the biggest snowflake ever, example: (view spoiler)[her being the only vampire in history to have a magical vampire baby all because she was oh so brave and strong. So daft. It was bad enough that vampires in the serie...
  • Sharon ∞❥ is an emotional book junkie ❥∞
    3.5 - 4 ★'s ~Sigh~ so this is basically the last book for Ethan and least for their story arc and I really hate to say that I was disappointed but I was. It's just the same ol' same ol' went on too long. But kudos to Chloe Neill for ending the series especially when sooo many authors just go on and on. However, the Chicagoland Vampires will be continuing in a spin off series. If you don't want to be spoiled, *DO NOT READ THE BLURB*, ...
  • Lana *Lifeinwordsandlyricscom*
    Loved it Loved it Loved itThere is never a dull moment in a life of Chicagoland vampire. There were so many battles, so many enemies, so much destruction. What could we possibly expect from the final installment? How about...Yep. I'm not even joking. But let's leave that for a dessert, shall we?It all began with a wedding I've been so waiting for. Oh, and for my future maid of honor's future reference, take notes from Mallory on organising my bac...

    ⋰⋱⋰⋱⋰⋱*The End*⋰⋱⋰⋱⋰⋱ I had expected a more different ending; the end of a thirteen length series. I had expected more of a closure and I would've like to see (view spoiler)[Merit pregnant and Ethan's reactions while she is (hide spoiler)], but we only got more of the same. I do believe though, that the spinoff might be interesting to read. Though it wasn't all that surprising; quite predictable.The characters:— Carolin...

    BLADE BOUND marks the end of the Chicagoland Vampires series. What a wild ride it’s been and while I know I will dearly miss these characters, Chloe Neill has done a wonderful job of wrapping up this series.As one would expect, this book differs from all the other books in the series because it has a bittersweet feel to it. Merit and Ethan are looking to tie the knot and as the big day approaches, so does other trouble.I didn’t believe for on...

    Its always a sad thing when a series you love comes to an end so Blade Bound is one of those bittersweet books that you almost don't want to read because once its over it's really OVER. I've been a fan of the Chicagoland Vampires for so many years now and I've loved every minute of it. Merit is such a brilliant character and I love her relationship with Ethan. They've learnt a lot both as individuals and as a couple and they've faced all kinds of...
  • Angela (Angel's Guilty Pleasures)
    Blade Bound is the final book in the Chicagoland Vampires series by Chloe Neill. Ms. Neill did a wonderful job wrapping up this series. It was nice to finally see Ethan and Merit tie the not, but with the big day coming closer, so does trouble. Their was mystery as well as action. I enjoyed seeing the gang; all the previous characters come together to help Merit. I adored the wedding preparations, bridle shower, reception and the whole thing. It ...

    I have to wait an entire year?!Fucking blasphemy. Edit: Guys. Guys! Look at that cover. ETHAN is gracing the cover of the final **tear** installment of the Chicagoland Vampires. My prayers have been answered... After Reading It felt a little rushed, but it was good. I can't offer much more than just "good" right now. Maybe my expectations were too high? But the plot seemed kind of out there, and I didn't get as much time with the wedding and (vie...
  • Francesca
    Le plus mauvais de la série, et c'est triste que ça tombe sur le dernier tome.J'ai eu beaucoup de mal à le finir, tellement l'histoire est ennuyeuse, sans relief, jusqu'au bout. La fameuse prophétie dont j'attendais beaucoup est expédiée. Il n'y a que le début qui est mignon. Le reste ne sert à rien.Très déçue qu'une de mes sagas préférées finisse aussi bas.
  • Meigan
    The final book has METHAN on the cover, how fitting :)*Counts towards the Cliterary Genius 2018 Reading Challenge - July - (7) Listen to an Audible book.

    This review was originally posted on Cocktails and BooksThis is a review I've been dreading for a long time. Not because the book is bad or something horrible happens to a beloved character. Nope. I've dreaded this because one of my all-time favorite series is coming to an end.I wondered how Merit and Ethan's story was going to come to an end. Would their wedding go off without a hitch? Was Gabriel's prediction, from many books ago, going to come...

    ALL THE STARS. Blade Bound gets all. The. Stars. I read Some Girls Bite (Chicagoland Vampires #1) a bunch of years ago when I was looking for something to fill the Sookie Stackhouse-sized hole left in my vampire book loving heart. I fell in love with the strong, plucky, bacon-loving Merit and her sire, the enigmatic Ethan Sullivan. Over the years they have been through more than any one couple should ever have to go through. No really. It's been ...
  • RachelW (BamaGal)
    If Nancy Drew was a vampire, this would be her series...And so we limp to the bittersweet end of a long running series. The story takes on the familiar formula of all the more recent books; yet another mad, magical entity is once again threatening Chicago (twisted sorceress Sorcha Reed in a repeat performance). You've read various takes on this theme the last five or six books. At least Neill finally stopped calling Ethan 'boy'.An expected event ...

    He smiled, touched his forehead to mine. "I love you beyond reason." That quite sum the last installment of this series. Merit and Ethan finally have their wedding and yes I'm quite impressed with bachelor party.... Is 80% contains of chocolate (^O^)And love the ending! When I thought : this is it the last pages, I need to say goodbye.... Voila, there's a sequel for this series. I just can't wait to read it. Chloe Neil one of my favorit...

    I was so looking forward to completing the last book in this series and then being able to put it to bed, so to speak....and you could after this one if you wanted. Merit and company did not disappoint in this one, with love, friendship, quick and unexpected plot twists, and as always a great adventure, but That ending, and the premise for the new spin off series, I'm completely onboard now to follow through with the next great adventure for Chic...

    *Source* Publisher*Genre* Urban Fantasy*Rating* 4.5*My Thoughts*Blade Bound is the Thirteenth and final installment in Chloe Neill's Chicagoland Vampires series. It is a series that began in 2009, and got better and better as time flew by. Some Girls Bite was the book which kicked off my blogging career. It would take a few more years until Gizmos Reviews really came to life, but in the meantime, it was Chicagoland Vampires that had me looking fo...

    A decent--and overdue--end to the series.After the whole Ethan episode and the Mallory debacle, I lost much of my enthusiasm for the series. This final story gives us another peek at many of the major players, shows us some quality Ethan and Merit time, and wraps things up in a satisfactory manner. The main plot, though? Kinda dull. The bad guys for the most part were polite enough to wreak havoc mostly while the vamps were awake, the conflicts w...

    4.5 starsAnd another series that comes to an end. I'm sad about it, but at the same time I'm happy because it was time to finish it and it had a happy ending. 'Blade Bound' was good. Not exceptional, but good.We have more magic, more evil plans and more action. That was one of the things that I enjoyed most about this book, the fact that after almost 15% it was mostly action. We jump from one thing to another and I wasn't bored. I admit that the...
  • Graylark
    Good read, but rather unfulfilling as the last book in the series.
  • Jodi
    It's nice when a series goes out on a high note and this one does. The whole gang gets together to fight the latest (and greatest and biggest and baddest) evil to threaten Chicago. Merit's wedding goes off without a hitch. It's after the wedding that things go to hell in a handbasket. Her wedding dress will never be the same, despite Helen's promise (threat?) to repair it. But we knew this is coming. Sorcha is back and she's not alone. This time ...

    1970-01-01 OMG. This is it folks. This is the FINAL book of the Chicagoland Vampire series and I must say it is bittersweet. There were some books where I wasn’t sure if I gonna stick with the series but in the end I did and I’m glad that I did. It was an overall enjoyable ride with Merit and Ethan. I always find it hard to review the final book of a series and this is no different in this case. Anyway, I will t...
