    "Biting Bad/Tastes and Sounds Delicious"

    Being a huge fan of Chicagoland Vampire books, this book was greatly anticipated. And, it does not disappoint. The story is well thought out, the characters (who by now are old friends) are fun to reconnect with, the writing is crisp and strong and Ms Neill's voice becomes more clear and effective with each successive book. Sophie Eastlake's performance is SPOT-ON!! She delivers a great and masterful interpretation of the dialogue; her voices match the characters (she does a damn good Ethan) and the intonation/inflection certainly indicates that she didn't just pick this book up and start reading it out loud. The relationship between Ethan and Merit continues to evolve and Ms. Eastlake's reading of them reflects exactly that. Of course, the read is contingent on the writing and Ms. Neill is getting stronger with every book. I sure hope the next one is out soon and that Ms Eastlake is once again in the driver's seat as the performer. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

    "Love this series!!!!!"

    Not so much the narration but I am still hooked on the first narrator for this series. I am getting used to the change but it's a real pity to have to. I think it should be a rule that if you start narrating a series you keep at it (unless you are voted as real crap) The story line is chugging along nicely. Not real explosive this time but a carry-on in the story..waiting on the next installment.....

    "Its Late, But Its Getting Better!!"

    When I started this series I wasn't a big fan, and I don't think I am now. But the series is getting better and better in my opinion and lately I have started to enjoy listening to it rather than forcing myself to finish it.

    A lot of changes happen when you compare it to the first few books and I like that, and few twists here and there which i didn't expect at all.. And I always like that.

    it was a good read.

    "Biting Bad is biting great."
    If you could sum up Biting Bad in three words, what would they be?

    Page turning action


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Biting Bad?

    Merit and Mallory's repair of their relationship.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I did not like the way the narrator voiced Ethan. It made him sound a little on the whiny
    side, which is not what Ethan Sullivan is. After a few chapters, I was able to begin
    enjoying the book. It must be hard to give voices and character to as many personalities as this book has.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No

    "You put down your katana?"

    I have loved this series, and I still do love the chemistry between the main characters, but there were too many times in Biting Bad where my reaction was just, "You did what? Idiot!" Merritt (sp? Hard to know these things when you've listened to all the books) throws down her katana to even the odds before a fight before she knows the caliber of her foe... and then gets her ass handed to her. A normal human nearly does her in at one point. It's really hard to buy her supposed fighting prowess. The ending felt convenient and easy. I didn't but too much of this novel.

    "Chloe rules"

    Chloe Neil knows how to write a true Vampire novel. Lots of action with just a touch of erotica.

    "Fantastic"

    I think this might have been my favorite entry in the series. There was a lot of action, a lot of romance, and many appearances by the characters we've come to know throughout the whole series. It's nice to see the continued rehabilitation of Mallory and the apparent end of one of the arcs that's been going on over the last several books. The book does end on a bit of a cliffhanger and I can't wait until the next one comes out. Sophie Eastlake as narrator did a fantastic job.
