After the heaviness of Midnight Marked, Phantom Kiss was a nice change of pace to remind us all just how much fun Methan and the gang are when they aren’t faced with a life or death situation and to get us ready for Blade Bound, the final book in the Chicagoland Vampires series.
In Phantom Kiss the gang all gather to do a little ghostbusting of their own as a Phantom is released and causes a little havoc at Cadogan House. The storyline was simple and fun and I loved that we got to hang out with Annabelle, the necromancer, again because the woman fits right in with this motley crew. As much as I love Methan, Luc was the winner in this one with his enthusiasm for the hunt.
If you haven’t read at least the last two books in the series you may feel a little lost as it comes on the heels of some pretty major upheaval that just occurred, but it doesn’t push any major storylines forward and only gives a hint as to what could be coming in the next. Either way it’s a fun, short glimpse into this crazy ensemble cast of characters and the world they live in.

In this all-new novella from the New York Times bestselling author of Midnight Marked, Merit, Ethan, and the rest of Cadogan House crew discover that not all undead creatures are kindred spirits…
Vampires generally aren’t afraid of things that go bump in the night, but Merit and Ethan are extra jumpy after a recent attack by a dark sorcerer. So when they learn that someone is messing with graves in Chicago’s cemeteries, stealing skulls and snatching souls, they fear that their powerful foe might be back for even more magical vengeance.
But after a specter begins haunting Cadogan House—and targeting vampires—they realize that their being taunted by an altogether different sort of monster. A ghoulish villain straight out of the Windy City’s urban legends is on the prowl—and he won’t stop until he’s killed again...
Includes a sneak peek of Blade Bound, the epic final novel in the New York Times bestselling Chicagoland Vampires series.
