Friday Night Bites: Chicagoland Vampires, Book 2 | [Chloe Neill]

Friday Night Bites: Chicagoland Vampires, Book 2

"Vampires in Chicago! You'd think headlines like that would have provoked the fine citizens of the Windy City to take up arms against us bloodsucking fiends. Instead, 10 months later, we're enjoying a celebrity status reserved for the Hollywood elite - fending off paparazzi only slightly less dangerous than cross- and stake-wielding slayers. Don't get me wrong. Joe Public isn't exactly thrilled to be living side-by-side with the undead, but at least they haven't stormed the castle...yet."

Publisher's Summary

"Vampires in Chicago! You'd think headlines like that would have provoked the fine citizens of the Windy City to take up arms against us bloodsucking fiends. Instead, 10 months later, we're enjoying a celebrity status reserved for the Hollywood elite - fending off paparazzi only slightly less dangerous than cross - and stake-wielding slayers. Don't get me wrong. Joe Public isn't exactly thrilled to be living side-by-side with the undead, but at least they haven't stormed the castle...yet.

"All that will change once they learn about the Raves - mass feeding parties where vampires round up humans like cattle and drink themselves silly. Most civilized vampires frown on this behavior - but that doesn't make good copy for a first-time reporter looking to impress his high-society family.

"So now my 'master' - the centuries-old yet gorgeously well-preserved Ethan Sullivan - wants me to reconnect with my own upper-class family and act as liaison between humans and vampires...and keep the more unsavory aspects of our existence out of the media. But someone doesn't want people and vamps to play nicey-nice - someone with an ancient grudge."

Bite into another Chicagoland Vampires novel.

    I am a retired Court Reporter and I LOVE books. All kinds of books but my favorites are mysteries and period books. I like civil war books and some biographies.

    "Okay book, kind of slow."

    This second book was a bit slow to me what a few stupid parts. It is still okay and better than some. Hoping the book 3 is better. Will start it after I read Kim Harrison's A Perfect Blood Book 10 of the Hollows, narrated by Margarite Gavin who is my favorite narrator.

    I am dyslexic! If it wasn't audible I would not even be able to know what's in a book. I found out I love books.

    Story
    "Cynthia Holloway Mangles Another Series"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A different reader would have given it a chance. Why does Holloway keep getting work? I have to admit that the books are pretty thin to begin with, but the reader makes or breaks a book and Holloway's grinding delivery is painful to listen to. Sorry I bought this book -- couldn't bear to listen to it.


    What could Chloe Neill have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    she could have chosen a different reader --


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Cynthia Holloway?

    Gabra Zackman, Sophie Eastlake, Jessica Almasy -- pretty much anyone.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The basic premise was interesting, but there wasn't enough happening. And Holloway's delivery was too painful for me to concentrate much on the story.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't know how author's choose the readers -- or even if they do -- but someone should pay attention to the reviews the readers get because a bad reader will impact sales. I won't buy anything read by Cynthia Holloway or Emily Durante -- ever. And I'm not the only one who feels this way.

    "Very fun!"

    Very good second book in the series. Ms. Neill has created a wonderfully diverse world filled with vampires, shape-shifters, witches, and humans. Of course, I love the all the beautifully dressed, gorgeous vampire males!

    The narrator, Cynthis Holloway, took a little getting used to because much of the dialogue is spoken with an edge of sarcasm even when it's not called for. And I partially agree with one of the reviewers here who said sometimes it was hard to tell the talk from the thoughts, but that was certainly not enough to stop me from finishing the series. But now I really enjoy the narration.

    I find the plot very involving and the sexual tension between Merrick (sorry about any weird spelling) and Ethan is really well done, but I want it consumated soon, thank you.

    "Loving the Chicagoland Vampire series:)"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Chloe does wonderful job of tying the books together and keeping the reader interested. moves pretty fast also and just enough descriptions to form a mental image without causing the reader to skip to the next dialog.
    Cynthia Holloway is an excellent narrator and the way she switches easily between characters is fantastic:)
    totally worth the read or listen:)

    "...Get it on already!"

    I love this series. The narrator kept me involved and the plot is growing slowly. I hope to enjoy the next addition to the series.

    Story
    "This one hooks you on the series"

    This is the second of the Chicagoland Vampire series, and I will say that this one is the one that will hook you on the series. I listened to the first book quite awhile ago, and didn't go on with the series, then this one came up on sale, so I gave it a whirl. The story really starts to get interesting with this book, with bringing in a lot of mystery, and the start of a love triangle. The heroine finds herself gaining all kinds of extra power, along with having many interested men, which I like in these kinds of books. Somewhat, early Anita Blake. Anyway, I'm continuing on with the series, so hopefully it won't disappoint.
