Publisher's Summary

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.

    "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?

    "Narrator is awful"

    Please switch back to Cynthia Holloway. The narrator was awful. I almost stopped listening, but I wanted to know what would happen with Merit and Ethan. I powered through it. I am looking forward to the next book.

    "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.

    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.

    "Pretty good I guess..."

    The story was pretty good, but not the best. The relationship issue is getting old though. Chloe Neill needs to learn how to write a love scene. I hate books that have the characters kiss and then it's the next day or it says "sometime later" or "afterward". That's a cop-out. Six books now and the romance is pretty boring. Pretty good action, but again, not the best. Nothing like a Jeaniene Frost book.
