"Reviewed by: Rabid Reads.

The CHICAGOLAND VAMPIRES series is twelve installments deep, so it’s kinda crazy that Merit is only now celebrating her one-year vampire anniversary, but there you have it! It’s been a heck of a journey thus far, and Chloe Ne" Read more of this review »

Chloe and 5 other people liked Jannelle's review of The Veil (Devil's Isle, #1):
The Veil by Chloe Neill
"My brain is still processing all the feels.
I should also mention that it was not my plan to read the ARC so early on but I fell way down into that rabbit hole and now that means a longer wait time until the next one. Up side? One of my top reads of " Read more of this review »
Chloe answered a question about The Veil:
The Veil by Chloe Neill
It is not. The heroine is 24.
More of Chloe's books…
“You undo me, Merit. Wholly and completely. You don't take me at my word. You challenge me at every opportunity. And that means when I'm with you, I am less than the head of this House...and I am more than the head of this House. I am a man." He stroked my cheeks with his thumbs. "In my very, very long life, I need you more than I have ever needed anything.”
Chloe Neill, Twice Bitten

“You can run. You can keep running to the ends of the earth. But I won’t be far behind you.”


“No. I will never be far behind you.” He tipped up my chin so that I could do nothing else but look back into his eyes. “Do the things you need to do. Learn to be a vampire, to be a warrior, to be the soldier you are capable of being. But consider the possibility that I made a mistake I regret—and that I’ll continue to regret that mistake and try to convince you to give me another chance until the earth stops turning.”
Chloe Neill, Hard Bitten

“He's twenty-nine. And what did you think he was going to look like?"
She shrugged.
"You know-old. Grizzled. Long white beard. Scruffy robes. Loveable, smart, a little absent minded."
I bit back a grin.
" I said 'sorcerer,' not 'Dumbledore.' So he's hot. It could be worse.”
Chloe Neill, Some Girls Bite
