Chloe Neil has this innate capability of bringing these characters to the forefront of your mind. She brings you this story, these lives and within seconds she makes the story real. If you can not read that, if you can not feel that I have no words for you. Merit is one of THOSE characters for me. You know what I mean. The one that you can't wait to read what happens next, the one that you read over and over again because it's just that awesome. Wild Things definitely brings all the greatest qualities of a great book to it's readers.
Merit and Ethan are on the lam, a well thought out decision was made to protect Ethan from the mayor of Chicago. She's gunning for Ethan to be tried for murder among other charges because, well, she can. There is literally no other reason. She wants the sups back in hiding and she wants it done now. Ethan is a good scapegoat for her vision. So to protect Ethan, they go off to part of the shifters land and hunker down. But trouble follows Merit around and things at this shifter gathering can not go easily. There is a major magical attack and a member of the pack goes missing. Merit gets kidnapped and it turns out elves are still around even though everyone except Gabe thought they were extinct. One of the elves members goes missing as well. And they're holding the shifters and the vampires responsible. So it's up to Merit and her crew to round up the missing sups and it's turning out to be more than what meets the eye. As things usually are with this group.
These aren't the only things going on. Merit is being pressured by outside parties to convince Ethan to make a decision that could change things irrevocably. There also seem to be quite a few loose ends being tied up in this book and things are kind of transitioning for a bigger storyline to come. Gabe's premonitions for Merit and Ethan are finally revealed to Ethan and he has some very strong feelings about the future.
I can barely wait for Blood Games to come out in August. Waiting to know what happens next with Merit and Ethan is not easy and patience is not one of my virtues. While we're already 9 books into this series, only 10 months have passed. And Merit's life has changed drastically from the beginning of this series and I can only imagine what's going to happen next. If you haven't read this series yet, you are truly missing out.
