Blog tour: Blood games (Chicagoland Vampires Series #10) by Chloe Neill + Giveaway


I am so glad to welcome you to my stop on the blog tour for Blood games, the 10th book in the Chicagoland vampires series, of which I am a big fan. I am currently in the middle of the book, and I have to say that this series only gets better with time and that Merit and Ethan do have some challenges to overcome but in the end, they face them together. You can expect my review by the end of the week so I go back to reading and you enter to win some great prizes and see my favorite quotes from the series.


Summary:

While Merit didn’t choose to become a vampire or Sentinel of Cadogan House, she vowed to fight for her House and its Master, and she’s managed to forge strong alliances with powerful supernaturals across Chicago. But even though Merit has had wild adventures, this may be her deadliest yet….

A killer is stalking Chicago, preying on humans and leaving his victims with magical souvenirs. The CPD hasn’t been able to track the assailant, and as the body count rises, the city is running out of options. Vampires and humans aren’t on great terms, but murder makes for strange bedfellows. Can Merit find the killer before she becomes a target?




Purchase or pre-order Blood Games:


My favorite Chicagoland vampires quotes:

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

“Ethan—”

“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.”

―  Hard Bitten

“The best revenge is a life well lived.” 
―  Twice Bitten

“I have been given a third chance at life, even if the circumstances are somewhat disconcerting. You are mine, and we both know it.” 
―  Drink Deep

“The world isn’t perfect, and some days it wears you down. You can either accept that, and face it, and be a help to others instead of a hindrance. Or you can decide the rules are too tough and they shouldn’t apply to you, and you can ignore them and make things harder for everybody else. Sometimes life is about being sad and doing things anyway. Sometimes it’s about being hurt and doing things anyway. The point isn’t perfection. The point is doing it anyway.” 
―  Biting Cold

  4. I had no idea you were a part of this tour, Lea!

    My favorite quote is from my favorite Chicagoland Vampires novel, Hard Bitten.

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

    “Ethan—”

    “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.”

  5. Ooooow there are so many to chose from.

    But I guess my favourite quote would be:

    "It is an apology," he said, "for not believing in you... or in us. Yesterday, I thought I lost you, and then we fought together," he said. "I pushed you away for fear of what our relationship would do, could do, to this house. And then we protected this house together. That is the true measure of what we could do"
    He paused, then tapped a finger against the box. "This is a wish" he said quietly, "that even after four hundred years of existence, a man can be strong enough to accept the gifts he's been given."
    "Ethan-, " I began, but he shook his head.
    "I'm prepared to wait for a positive response."
    "That's going to take a while."
    Ethan lifted a single eyebrow, a grin lifting one corner of his mouth. "Sentinel, I am immortal."

    Twice Bitten - page 354-355

    I loved that quote.

    Thank you so much.

  9. “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.”
    ― Twice Bitten

    Love that quote.

  10. Gawd...you had to pick the hardest question of them alll, since there are so many GOOD quotes. Ethan is a lothario, for sure.
    “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.”
    Who wouldn't want a man to feel that way about them, esp a sexy vamp?

  21. Hello EveryOne,

    I'm giving a testimony on how me and my fiance became a vampire. This was how i and my fiance became
    Vampire, I was browsing the internet searching on how i could be transformed. When i came across the email of a man named DON JUAN. who was
    a VAMPIRE so I told him that I and my fiance has always dreamed of
    become VAMPIRES so he asked me my name, country, State, address, photo, etc. and asked me to contact the market of spells for the Hindu materials required for our
    transformation. So I did and he said that a vampire will be
    assigned to guide us and direct us on how the items are to be used. After five days I and my fiance was totally a vampire. if you are interested in becoming a vampire, contact him for more information on how you could also
    be transformed. Here is LORD DON JUAN email
    VAMPIREINCANTATIONS@GMAIL.COM

    SINCERELY,
    ALISHA.
