Turned into a vampire against her will, 28-year-old Merit found her way into the dark circle of Chicago's vampire underground, where she learned there was more to supernaturals than met the eye - and more supernaturals than the public ever imagined. And not all the secrets she learned were for sharing - among humans or inhumans.

Now Merit is on the hunt, charging across the stark American Midwest, tailing a rogue supernatural intent on stealing an ancient artifact that could unleash catastrophic evil on the world. But Merit is also the prey. An enemy of Chicagoland is hunting her, and he'll stop at nothing to get the book for himself. No mercy allowed. No rules apply. No lives spared. The race is on.

    "Chicagoland Vampires Book 6"

    I liked this installment. A little more talk than action in this one compared to the last couple, but this book sets up interesting changes to come and may be more of a transition book, although Merit and Ethan do get a chance to kick some butt. I missed some of my faves like the shifters, Morgan, Noah and Jonah but hope they will pop up for more than cameos in the next books. Good news is that Book 7, House Rules, is scheduled to be out in Feb 2013, so not terribly long to wait and see where it goes from here.

    I approve of the narrator change. While I did like Cynthia Holloway's male voices a little better in that she has a wider range of male characters, I am thankful to have Sophie Eastlake's superior pronunciation and ability to perform accents, and I have really liked other books she narrated.

    "Great Series..."

    I wasn't sure about this book series...the plot, the cover photo had be scared to use the credit. It was worth it. I have enjoyed all the books in the series even this one. However, while the narration isn't bad it also isn't Merit! Why do they do this...? Hours into a listening experience and they change a vital part of the experience? As with most books written in a series I wouldn't recommend this as a stand alone book and it is not the best book in the series.Felt more like a filler book with the added distraction of a new narrator. Personally I am still debating on if I will listen to any future books... guess it depends on the narrator and reviews by the fans.

    "Very Entertaining Vampire Book & Series"

    I enjoyed reading "Biting Cold", by Chloe Neill. It's the sixth book in her 'Chicagoland' series. I enjoy the characters, the world, and the escapist fun reading they provide. It's hard to share the story of this book without spoiling it for readers who have not read the following one but I can say that it continues the tales started in previous books and ties up several of the stories while opening up new possibilities for future books.

    I thought the narrator of this book did a fine job and was not put-off by the change in narrators mid-series. While i agree this is usually not a good idea I did not feel there was enough of a difference to merit the complaint.

    I recommend the 'Chicagoland Vampire' series be read n order and that this book, along with the other books in the series be read by all who enjoy reading books about vampires and their worlds. It's light fiction that's very entertaining and has a sense of humor. It has very little sexual content but there is romance. Some violence but is not overly graphic.

    "Rekindled my interest in the series!"

    I was hesitant to get this book because I had sort of lost interest in the series and many of the reviews I read were not very good. I was pleasantly surprised at how good this book was. It is full of drama, both romantic and action. There are no boring sections, it held my interest the entire time. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series!

    The narration was great, too!

    "Excellent!!!"
    Any additional comments?

    Another enjoyable installment of the series. Feel Sophie Eastlake's voice is similar to that of Cynthia Holloway. She made transitioning from the narrator of the first five books effortless.

    "Sophie Eastlake does a great job"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If you enjoyed the previous books in the Chicagolan Vampire series you will not be dissappointed in this latest addittion. I don't understand all the negetive hype about the change in narrators. In my opinion Sophie Eastlake does a great job with this book. The change is subtle and Sophie 's performance provides for a calmer, more mature sounding Merit One critism I have of the series is that Merit frequently sounds like a silly, twenty something year old. Isn't Merrit 28 years old, an English lit graduate, and the Sentinel of Cadigan House. Let's make her voice fit her character. Good job Sophie for doing this while keeping with the original narrative style developed by Cynthia Holloway.


    Any additional comments?

    The on again, off again nature of Ethan and Merits relationship is getting a bit frustrating. They are mostly on a downward spin and when they do get together it is anticlimatic. After all the trials and tribulations they go through, it should be earth shattering when they finaly get together. Chloe Neill would make a very good series, fantastic if Ethan's and Merit's characters were a bit more passionate. Don't get me wrong, I don't want to turn this series into another Harlequin romance, but a few declarations of love, and a bit more in the way of passionate love scenes seems called for. Maybe in the next release?

    "Couldn't finish listening...had to read the book"

    Loved the story, but...The narration was too totally different from the other books in the series; I couldn't make the transition and ended up downloading it to my kindle and reading it. The original narrator, C. Holloway, was better able to bring the characters to life and her voices better matched their personalities, (even though she repeatedly mispronoumced words, like "undoubtedly".) The new narrator was too tired and sarcastic. The change at this point in the series was completely off-putting. I'll undoubtedly read the next book, rather than listen.

    "Narrator"
    Would you listen to another book narrated by Sophie Eastlake?

    NO


    Any additional comments?

    Bring Back Cynthia Holloway, once you start with one narrator its hard to hear some one else. Jim Daly did all the Harry Potters why not have Ms. Holloway do all of the Chicagoland Vampires?????

    "Very well done"

    The story was very good and I'm sorry it will be so long until we get another. At least I hope there is more. This ties up a lot of arcs in story from before and put a lot of things straight. My only quibble with the way it's written is that I wish that Ethan was allowed to do some of the heavy lifting that seems to always be Merit's job.

    I like this narrators interpretation much better than the last one.
