Publisher's Summary

Clouds are brewing over Cadogan House, and recently turned vampire Merit can't tell if this is the darkness before the dawn or the calm before the storm. With the city itself in turmoil over paranormals and the state threatening to pass a paranormal-registration act, times haven't been this precarious for vampires since they came out of the closet. If only they could lay for a bit, and let the mortals calm down.

That's when the waters of Lake Michigan suddenly turn pitch black - and things really start getting ugly. Chicago's mayor insists it's nothing to worry about, but Merit knows only the darkest magic could have woven a spell powerful enough to change the very fabric of nature. She'll have to turn to friends old and new to find out who's behind this, and stop them before it's too late for vampires and humans alike.

Bite into another Chicagoland Vampires novel.

My favorite "Chicagoland Vampire" book so far.

After listening to the fourth book in the CHicagoland Vampires series I didnt know if i would be able to get through this book. But the author did a really good job with this story. I thought it was smart, fun, excciting, and had the perfect ending. this is one of those books i would listen to again and i cant wait for the next book to come out in August.

Best Book of the Series

Just like my headline says, this is (by far) the best book of the Chicagoland Vampires series. Chloe Neill really packed some punch with this book. There are so many layers to the story that you just can't seem to absorb the content fast enough. Just when you think you've figured out what is going on (and who's behind it), then the rug gets yanked out from underneath you, and another layer gets added to the story.

I can't really do a full review on this book b/c there would be way too many spoilers. All I can say is that I can hardly wait for Book 6, Biting Cold to come out in August 2012!!!!

Drink Deep

Well I did kind of suspect but I sure as heck did not see that coming!! Things are heating up in Chicago and Merit is right smack dab in the middle of it all and not by her choice. I really like the new relationships she is making, I don’t think she is moving on per say I think she is living on as he would have wanted. Again I am loving the narration.

DRINK DEEP!

What did you love best about Drink Deep?

The fact that Merit is still looking after her house mates.

What did you like best about this story?

It still followed the story theme.

What aspect of Cynthia Holloway’s performance would you have changed?

The narrator was too mechanical and stilted. There wasn't much emotion in the narration.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Nature seeks revenge!

Standing tall

We find Merit doing her absolute best trying to deal with the aftermath of Ethan death. Jonah is there for her as her partner as they try to find the source of the destruction of Chicago while dealing with everyone who hates and blames them for everything. Chloe Neill story is awesome and keeps you wanting more. cynthia Holloway does a fine job of storytelling.⚘⚘⚘

Narrator drives me nuts with mispronounced words!

The series is fun and engaging. I like the depth of the characters as they develop.

The narrator, though, has some serious problems with several words that are commonly used. It is distracting and annoying. I've listened to other series that she's narrated and did not notice this many errors. Aren't audio editions edited like print versions? If I were the author, I would be unhappy that my work was being so poorly presented.
Hoping the next book with new narrator will be better read.

Narrator needs pronunciation lessons

What did you like best about this story?

Story line has some more twists and turns that will surprise. Thought I knew what was going on.....I was wrong.

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

AudioBook Review: Narrator is at it again. She doesn't seem to know how to pronounce many common words like acumen. And there were a few more I noticed as well. Narrator still is mixing up male voices and give numerous male characters the same voice. We'll see what happens in the next book. I understand there is a new narrator for the next few books of the series at least. We'll see how she does. Can't be much worse.

Thank goodness Cynthia Holloway is gone

Would you listen to Drink Deep again? Why?

I listen to the series fairly frequently.

How could the performance have been better?

Get a different narrator. Seriously. All the interrogatives are flat; no upswing on the intonation at the end of a question. And the mispronunciations... "supposably", "undoubtably", "Dar-eye-us" (it should "Dare-ee-us", and she got it right early on in the series), "doc-tor'-al", among other sins. All the men drawl, and her pauses at commas are just weird. It's like she doesn't pre-read her copy. It is, quite frankly, appalling. I can only assume she works really, really cheap. I'd be thrilled to rebuy the series if it was re-recorded by someone who can read the English language correctly.
