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.

    "Enjoyable."
    What made the experience of listening to Some Girls Bite the most enjoyable?

    The narrator was good and the story was a fun one. Very enjoyable. Not so intense that it was hard to follow as an audible book. It made my long run more enjoyable.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The plot was fun, uncomplicated and interesting.


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

    You can't read and run at the same time.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No particular moment moved me but I enjoyed the interaction of the characters. I want to know what happens to them.

    Story
    "Great foundation for the series"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I did recommend this series. The situations are somewhat predictable but still entertaining. Chicago is an amazing setting. The political climate is true to life, imo.


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

    Southern Vampire Mysteries. That's also about vampires living in the open in modern day society. The heroin has special abilities, as well.


    What didn’t you like about Cynthia Holloway’s performance?

    I find the narrators voice hypnotic and soothing. Unfortunately, she's not very good at transitioning from the characters.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Probably

    "Not your ordinary vampire story"
    What made the experience of listening to Some Girls Bite the most enjoyable?

    It made me laugh out loud several times because of the great sarcasm and witty comebacks.


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

    It was the first vamp book I've listened to, so I don't have alot to compare it to.


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

    She really gives each character their own personality and voice making it easy to distinguish who is talking.


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

    I laughed out loud a lot, which when you're wearing headphones makes people look at you like you're crazy.

    being dyslexic, I never read allot but I loved books...doesn't mix right? NOPE...wrong...Audible allows me to "read" at a pace that works for me and they have a great selection of books to keep me interested. I'm a fiction , sci-fi, and adventure books with strong female characters reader. I have been on a Vampire kick lately so female protags have been on my list.

    "A good read-if a bit "should I,no I can't,okmaybe""
    What made the experience of listening to Some Girls Bite the most enjoyable?

    The strong female main character. While I'm not into the "gushy" love story side of it..the overall story was good, and seems to set up the series pretty well.


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

    Well, it seems lately there are allot of strong female characters who fall in love with master vampires thanks to the "Tween" Vamp series of late...but I would say that while this series is ok too...my favorites are the Anita Blake series. There was more action in them, less gushy, oh should ...no I shouldn't...soft porn feel. This one had a bit of its soft porn feeling to it but not enough to put an "action fan" off enough to put it down...I just skipped the sections. The Anita Blake series was more story, less soft porn, and kept me interested through the whole story.


    Which character – as performed by Cynthia Holloway – was your favorite?

    The main female character?


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    It is an ok read, and its not a bad book...but it didn't have as much action as I expected and if you are ok with the whole "Harlequin-esk" vampire genre then this will probably be a great book for you. For me, it was "ok"...I've read way worse...it just wasn't exciting and I personally am bored with the soft porn flavor of books with strong female characters.

    I'm a big fan of si-fi, but I'm finding that a love for mysteries budding up in me. I also like a lot of nonfiction.

    "Just a start"

    This has the potential to be so much more. I felt like I never left the beginning of the book. The whole book was nothing but an introduction. It did, however; make me curious about the rest of the series.

    "Butt kicking with Merit!"
    What made the experience of listening to Some Girls Bite the most enjoyable?

    I will admit that I had already read this book in print, but couldn't resist adding it to my audio list to listen to it again in the car on my kindle.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Merit is my favorite character. How can you resist a college student made vampire (without her consent) made Sentinel. Challenges the big scary Master of the house when she's just two days old (vampire days that is).


    Which character – as performed by Cynthia Holloway – was your favorite?

    she did a great job portraying Merit


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The tension between Merit and Ethan.


    Any additional comments?

    I would Highly recommend this book to anyone who likes the girl to come out on top for a change ;D.

    Story
    "A Fun Ride"
    What other book might you compare Some Girls Bite to and why?

    Hmm, I think maybe the Rachel Morgan books by Kim Harrison. It just seems to have that same feel, where you know the romance is there but its really about the fantasy world and the mystery du jour.


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

    The voice acting. I love how she distinguishes between each character. Especially Catcher. His voice just cracks me up.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a fun ride. It wasn't predictable as vampire series tend to be nowadays. It was new, cool, and just plain fun to listen to. I love how Ethan and her aren't magically in love with each other and how he acts like how a person in his position would act. His world doesn't instantly just become about her and hers about his. She still has other family and friends and other things going on. The author takes good care to break fantasy stereotypes (eg, how two love interests have to end up in bed by the end of the book).
