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.

    "A bit obtuse and a cliffhanger?"

    I don't mind if a book is a book with a cliffhanger as long as the next book has been written and I won't have to wait :)
    I do mind if the book has gone from an entry into a good solid series about a strong woman who suddenly seems like she's suffering from dementia at perpetual 28, and knows nothing about the history she would have had to be fairly expert in, and instead of acting like a potential Ph.d in Medieval History, who'd have been taking all kinds of history classes since freshmen year in college , Google's the Renaissance to 'get an idea of how that character thinks', well please. Ridiculous. Not a best book of the series. I will try one more but if it too is like this, forget-about-it!

    "Almost, but not quite…"

    The author tried, she really did, but there's just something missing in this book. The suspense, the drama, it's almost right, but it's just off enough to derail the entire book for me. Personally, I won't be reading anymore of these novels.

    "LilyElement Book Reviews - Friday Night Bites"
    Any additional comments?

    Friday Night Bites is book two in the Chicagoland Vampires series. Caroline (Merit) Merit returns and is ready to kick more vampire butt if need be. She's the Sentinel of Cadogan house, which means she ensures the security of the house. I was happy to see more about the security side of things since Merit is taking her job seriously and protecting Ethan, the master of the house. This time around though she's trying to find out who's behind a threat to the weres which in turn affects the vampires. The situation is taking her back to her roots, and I knew this wasn't going to be pleasant for Merit.<br/><br/>There's so much conflict in this installment that my head was spinning. I was sad to see that there weren't many appearances from the secondary characters that I enjoyed in book one. There are bumps in the road for some of her former friendships and even love life. I got frustrated with our leading lady a few times. I know that Merit is still dealing with losing her humanity and her life being changed so drastically, but pick up the phone and talk to your BFF or something. Mallory (Merit's BFF) is also dealing with huge life changes (ie: her newly found magical abilities) and with Merit living at the Cadogan house their friendship is drifting a bit. I'm hoping to see more of those secondary characters in book three. All in all, this was a solid sequel, and I'm loving the series. I'll be grabbing book three via audio in the near future. I'd recommend this series if you're looking for an urban fantasy series with fighting and vampires.<br/><br/>The Narrator:<br/>I was happy to see Cynthia Holloway return in book two as the narrator. She was a bit stiff in the first book, but I think she's got a good feel for the characters now.

    "Love the story, but narrator needs a proofreader.."

    This series so far is great. I enjoy reading along w/ the narrator but though I give the story 5 stars, overall audibly it gets only 4 due to constant mispronunciations and skipped or added words.

    "Meh"
    What did you like best about Friday Night Bites? What did you like least?

    Im not overly impressed with this series. The writing comes across as very juvenile. The main character is 28 and behaves/thinks/speaks like a 14 year old girl. (What 28 year old woman would refer to a 400 year old vampire as a "cute boy"?) The overall storyline is interesting tho, and I will probably finish the series while I wait for my fave authors to update their series.


    If you’ve listened to books by Chloe Neill before, how does this one compare?

    This series is my first


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Learned proper pronunciation of terms commonly used in the book!
