Some Girls Bite: Chicagoland Vampires, Book 1

They killed me. They healed me. They changed me. Sure, the life of a graduate student wasn't exactly glamorous, but it was mine. I was doing fine until Chicago's vampires announced their existence to the world---and then a rogue vampire attacked me. But he only got a sip before he was scared away by another bloodsucker...and this one decided that the best way to save my life was to make me the walking undead.

Publisher's Summary

They killed me. They healed me. They changed me. Sure, the life of a graduate student wasn't exactly glamorous, but it was mine. I was doing fine until Chicago's vampires announced their existence to the world---and then a rogue vampire attacked me. But he only got a sip before he was scared away by another bloodsucker...and this one decided that the best way to save my life was to make me the walking undead. Turns out my savior was the master vampire of Cadogan House. Now I've traded sweating over my thesis for learning to fit in at a Hyde Park mansion full of vamps loyal to Ethan "Lord o' the Manor" Sullivan. Of course, as a tall, green-eyed, four-hundred-year-old vampire, he has centuries' worth of charm, but unfortunately he expects my gratitude---and servitude. Right. But my burgeoning powers (all of a sudden, I'm surprisingly handy with some serious weaponry), an inconvenient sunlight allergy, and Ethan's attitude are the least of my concerns. Someone's still out to get me. Is it the rogue vampire who bit me? A vamp from a rival House? An angry mob bearing torches? My initiation into Chicago's nightlife may be the first skirmish in a war---and there will be blood.

Bite into another Chicagoland Vampires novel.

    Yes, the story is interesting


    Would you recommend Some Girls Bite to your friends? Why or why not?

    Sure if you like Vamp stories


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Mispronounced words, voice was grating, raspy, inflection was wrong throughout.

    Not too bad


    Any additional comments?

    Wish I had actually read it. Will definitely actually read the rest of the series.

    Any additional comments?

    3.5 stars. It wasn't perfect, but it was definitely entertaining. I found myself having to stop and then looking forward to getting back to it so that's got to say something for it, right? And I'll definitely read the next. I want to see where this Ethan/Merit/Morgan thing is going. Hopefully the next book will be a little less talk and a lot more action, if you get my drift...

    Audiobook review: This chicks voice is just this side of robotic. When it first starts, I could have sworn I was listening to the text to speech version on my Kindle and was feeling a little ripped off, but it gets (a little) better over the course of the book. Jeez lady, loosen up a bit

    "A new structure for the vampire genre"
    Where does Some Girls Bite rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

    I have listened to some stellar books on audible. That said I would put this one above average . I didn't hop onto these books on release feeling tired of the vamp genre, but I have to say after the first book I did get each book of the series.


    What does Cynthia Holloway bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    Stilted speech and mispronunciation, but better than her average reading

    Story
    "Eh..."
    What did you like best about Some Girls Bite? What did you like least?

    I was so glad that it wasn't some whiny teen angst book like another well known recent series...

    But the main character, Merit, was so wishy washy and indecisive about what she wants that it really gets old after awhile.

    That and it took FOREVER for anything of real interest to actually happen.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    The ending was a lot like the rest of the book, a let down.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Well, me personally, and I want to stress that this is a PERSONAL taste, I don't much care for female narrators. They just don't seem to have the vocal range to give the various characters more definition.


    Do you think Some Girls Bite needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    The manuscript for this book should have been staked through the heart before it ever left the editors' desk.


    Any additional comments?

    I knew an hour into it that this was an opener for a series. All I can guess is that the author was trying to simply introduce the characters and give some background to the overall story. I'll try another since it is a series, but if the excitement level doesn't pick up dramatically I won't be going past book two

    "Enjoyed this book."

    I enjoyed this book very much. It kept my attention. The narrator did a pretty good job too. I am moving on to book 2. I would reccomend this book/series.

    PNR is my prefered genre, but I also enjoy any lighthearted, funny, steamy stories. Listening to books helps me to do mindless housework.

    "Couldn't get past the horrible narration & cursing"
    What disappointed you about Some Girls Bite?

    I have 152 titles in my Audible library and I've listened to at least another 75 over the years (before Audible) and I have to say this is the first time I've stopped listening to a book only after a few chapters due mostly (but not entirely) to the narrator, she was simply the worst!


    What was most disappointing about Chloe Neill’s story?

    I take particular offense when people take the Lord's name in vain. I mean really, is it really necessary to say J.C. and add insult to injury by associating His name with other profanitys? Once or twice is bad enough in a story (I understand people say terrible things under duress), but the author uses this quite a bit in the few chapters I got thru. Surely writters can find other ways of expressing themselves without using this ONE particular curse? I understand in this day and age most people wouldn't have an issue with this, but I do, and I mention it not only because of this question (what was most disappointing), but also to give a heads up to other listeners that might have the same sensitivies as I.


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

    I personally am a huge fan of Amanda Ronconi, she could have solved half of my issues with this selection


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Some Girls Bite?

    Isn't it obvious? I'd have the charaters use another expletive.

    "GREAT BOOK AND GREAT NARRATOR!"
    Where does Some Girls Bite rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Fantastic job of pulling the vampire story to updated Chicago and shows a great handling of a unique genre.


    What other book might you compare Some Girls Bite to and why?

    The closest book I can compare it to is


    What does Cynthia Holloway bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Cynthias Holloway brings a fantastic believablity to a brilliantly written book with the flexibility all the humor, suspense and drama her voice can bring. It's really a treat to have this narrator, as she really brings this book to life.


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

    I had no extreme reaction except to smile at the humor in the book and gratitude for being offered this book at such an acceptable price. If not, I probably would have missed this book and missed the enjoyment this narrator and author deliver. Now I can't wait to follow thorugh with the rest of this series in the months to come. These books are like a breatlh of fresh air.

    "Vampire Food Travelogue"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    A few friends that enjoy fantasy fiction with a definite chick twist. Great on 2nd City food treats, Could use less talk and more action.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Most interesting is the chick vampire point of view. Definitely a change from the usual gothic approach and welcome for that reason. Least interesting is her constant fretting about whether to bed the available boy toys. She's twenty-eight not eighteen and should be able to make that decision without so much angst. Besides, as a vamp she doesn't have to worry about getting knocked-up or an STD so less angst and more action would be appropriate.


    What does Cynthia Holloway bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She brings a real sense of place and participation by the main figures.


    Was Some Girls Bite worth the listening time?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    Read the further adventures and enjoyed them all, though the most recent book was somewhat disappointing in that it had plot twists that did not flow from the previous books.
