Vampires were made, not born, until Elisa Sullivan came along. The only vampire child in existence, she grew up with a heavy legacy, and she thought she could flee her past. But then trouble came for Chicago, and Elisa came home. Alongside shifter Connor Keene, the only son of North American Central Pack Apex Gabriel Keene, she faced down a great evil and accepted her true self.
Months after the deadly attacks, while tempers are still cooling, Elisa is surprised when Connor invites her to a Pack initiation in the north woods of Minnesota, and by the warm welcome she receives from Connor's family--even though she's a vampire. But the peace doesn't last; the initiation celebration turns to chaos when a mangled body is deposited at the Pack's home. Elisa and Connor find themselves in the middle of a shifter fight, and the stakes get even higher when Elisa makes a vampire in the middle of Pack territory. Now Elisa's life, the Pack, and its vampire alliance are at risk.
Generational clashes within a clan of shape-shifters dominate the lively second installment of the Heirs of Chicagoland series (following Wild Hunger). When shifter Connor Keene, prince of the North American Central Pack, hears there are problems in one of the pack's clans in Minnesota, he invites his friend Elisa Sullivan, a bitingly snarky vampire, to go with him to intervene. He wants her opinion as an outsider, but also as someone he can see a potential future with. If he can get the archaic, patriarchal elders of the Minnesota clan to accept a vampire, maybe the rest of the pack will, too. When unknown creatures launch an attack on the clan and nearby townspeople, Elisa saves a life by turning someone into a vampire without first getting consent from either the victim or the clan elders, putting the alliance between shifters and vampires at risk. Connor and Elisa must find the attackers if they hope to save the clan, the alliance, and themselves. Elisa is a fierce and endearing heroine readers will root for. This urban fantasy is a treat.
