Most of Chloe Neil's books can only be found in amateur translation into Russian. Although in 2010 and 2011 the first two parts of the cycle were released. They were published by "Azbuka" in the series "LUX. After Twilight". In this series, books were published by other authors writing stories about the "fanged". But sinceinterest in the topic faded very quickly, the publishing house stopped translating and releasing the rest of the Chicago Vampires.
