Review of "Drink Deep" (Chicagoland Vampires, #5) by Chloe Neil

Drink Deep  - Chloe Neill

I'm completely convinced that the story arc of his book is essential to the series.

 

Went a little soap opera-y, introduced a few too many new characters, too much bullying by the bad guys, took too long to connect that person X was always doing y during the z events ... but, overall an enjoyable read with Merit still Merit.

 

Looking forward to rest of series.  A bit leery  since the way this one ended might portend an upcoming road trip (I have a low tolerance for too much road trip in most stories).
