Exclusive Excerpt from Chloe Neill’s Dark Debt (+ Giveaway)


Dark Debt by Chloe Neill // VBCThe reviewers here at VBC are big fans of Chloe Neill’s Chicagoland Vampires series. The series continues to get better with each novel, and the latest twists have us asking all sorts of questions about what’s to come next.

Dark Debt, the 11th Chicagoland Vampires book, releases today, and we’re pretty much in love with it. We’ll have a full review later this week, but we have an exclusive taste of the book just for VBC readers to get you excited. Plus, we have a sweet giveaway compliments of Chloe!


The thrill of the fight—the flood of adrenaline—rushed through me, dampening doubt and sharpening my movements, my focus.

I knocked one man to the floor, but another followed him, as if emerging from the house’s crevices like a scuttling insect. He’d grabbed his own pool cue, and swung it at me like a hitter who’d pointed to left field.

I brought up my cue to strike, and he shattered it with enough force that it reverberated down my spine. With a thunderous crack, my cue splintered, in half, and I instinctively turned from the sound and shards of flying wood that I really, really hoped weren’t aspen—the only wood that could reduce me to ash if well aimed.

The man cursed with victory, reset for another swing, this one higher—and aimed at my head.

I didn’t wait for it to land. I dropped the broken cue, pivoted into a kick that nailed him in the side, and jerked the cue from his hands.

“Bitch,” he said, and I flipped the cue into the air, caught it backward, and nailed him between the eyes with the blunt end.

He teetered backward, fell atop a table, and both of them crashed to the floor. We hadn’t killed any that I could see, but we’d incapacitated some of them, at least for a little while. Maguire was still maniacally clawing at the disc. For all his ferocity, he didn’t handle his own injuries very well.

“Damn,” Morgan said, chest heaving beside me. “You’ve gotten better.”

“Yeah, I have.” I tossed the cue to the floor, gestured toward the stairs. “Let’s get the hell out of here.”

Ah! So good, right? You can (and should) snag a copy of Dark Debt from Amazon right now.

In the meantime we have some stellar Cadogan swag to giveaway to lucky VBC reader. The prize pack includes a Cadogan House tote, a signed book, Cadogan House keychain and more.
