Chloe Neill has released another book in the Heirs of Chicagoland series. WICKED HOUR continues the fun antics following Elisa Sullivan and her merry crew. I think Neill does a very good job of keeping with the style that so many readers have fallen in love with in this series, so I did enjoy reading about Elisa again.
It was a bit of a slow start for me in the beginning. But I do feel like once we kind of get into the action a bit more, things do pick up more.
Neill pays special attention to ...more
I received a free copy from the publisher via Netgalley and chose to leave a voluntary review. Thank you!*
I was really looking forward to this book, as I liked the first book a lot.
This book started out pretty good and strong but at the 30-40% mark it just went downhill and had a hard time ti recover from that.
One I thought as we leaping Chicago we get a little more action on the road and we do get some, but we also get some long and a bit boring politics. Some parts are just a...more
Review copy was received from NetGalley. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
The Heirs of Chicagoland series continues with a new adventure where we get Connor and Elisa spending a lot more time together on a trip out of town. Connor is going to a Pack event and takes her along as his date. They haven't spent much time, even as friends as adults so an out-of-town trip seems odd.
The previous book, Wild ...more

She lives with her best friend Lulu Bell who has refused to use any of her witch powers as live normally. Elisa works for the Ombudsman office where her grandfather once worked but the work is quite boring. Also, ...more
I really like Elisa/Connor as a couple and am enjoying this series far more than the previous one. I wasn’t as interested in the main paranormal mystery subplot, though.
Disclaimer: I received a free e-ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
Chloe Neill returns to Chicago once again with the latest in the Heirs of Chicagoland series, Wicked Hour. This continues Elisa and Connor’s story in what’s sure to be an all-around entertaining series! This series is very much the child of the Chicagoland Vampires series as it has that same kind of feel to the story, yet it’s entirely its own. There’s still the same ...more

Refresher: Elisa Sullivan, our heroine, is the only vampire child ever born, and her parents are the powerful leaders of the American vampires that lead the Chicagoland series. Connor Keen, ...more
Wicked Hour is the second novel in the Heirs of Chicagoland series by Chloe Neill. And yes, the entire series is a spin-off of her famous Chicagoland series, in case that wasn't obvious. Fans of her writing are going to love this latest addition to her world.
There's a private event happening in Pack territory back in Minnesota, that's nothing new or surprising. What is surprising is that Conner has ...more
I gave this book 3 stars. It wasn't a painful read, but it's all been done before with more heart in this same series. But the monster mystery is enough to keep me around for the next book.
This book was mostly a retread of events from the previous series. And the Minnesota supernaturals were just a more boring version of the Chicago supernaturals. Did they drive six hundred miles just ...more
I received this book for free from Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Wicked Hour is the second book in the Heirs of Chicagoland series. We've moved on from Merit and Ethan and now follow there daughter Elisa. In Wicked Hour, we've moved out of Chicago and into the woods of Minnesota. It really helps to establish Elisa as her own character, apart from Cadogan House.
Connor Keene, son of the Apex of the North American
I have mixed feelings about this book to be honest. I wanted Connor and Elisa and I got them. They were everything, cute, flirty, testing out the limits of their blossoming relationship. I would've wished for a little more action of the naked variety *wink*, but it was cute and given that there are at least two more books announced in the series, it felt right for them to take things slow.
The story itself was a little underwhelming. Shifters are always ...more
(view spoiler)[I don't think there'll come a time when I tire of being in this world Chloe Neill created, even if we're no longer following Merit and Ethan being able to follow their daughter and Gabe's son Connor is just as much fun. Mal and Catcher's daughter Lulu as well. This world is my favourite fictional world to visit and revisit time and time again and the second instalment in the Heirs of ...more
In the first book, there was a small connection between Elisa and Connor, who are respectively a vampire and a werewolf.
In Wicked Hour, Connor asks Elisa to accompany him to Minnesota on a pack business. In other words, everything will be complicated, not only must Connor get the Minnesota pack to admit Elisa, which is quite ...more
All the pack drama was nuts. I hated ...more
WILD HUNGER started off strong but left us wanting more about Elisa and Connor... WICKED HOUR responds to that need, by developping the main characters' chemistry,which is - ouch - SIZZLING !!! I love their banter and how they learn to rediscover their new more adult sides.
Ethan and Merit stay true to themselves, Gabriel makes me fall even more in love with his character, Lulu and Theo are hilarious and ...more
This was a great second book in the next phase of the Chicagoland Vampire and North American clans. We are now dealing with the children of our favorite couples and they are adults.
I loved this book.
It was great to see Elisa and Connor thrown into a Pack Mess and watch them as they put their upbringing and intelligence to use. They seem to be mature beyond their years and it just goes to show that they both had wonderful parents who instilled a great moral compass, along with strong ...more
The in depth insight into Pack life was really interesting especially if you have read the Chicagoland Vampires series where we catch glimpses of Pack life but not as in ...more
I feel a little behind the 8-ball here, not having read the first Heirs book, Wild Hunger. But I’ll be fixing that soon.
This book starts with a slow build-up to the action, but Neill is a master at bringing the characters out, developing the world they inhabit, fleshing them fully until you are feeling with them.
Elise and Connor are trying to move forward in a potential relationship, and Connor even ...more
The book takes some time to get going and it seems to feel rushed at the end. I think too much was being added on the sides of the main plot and it felt like page filler, which meant the end was ...more
