Biting Cold

Read from September 23 to 27, 2012

He's BACK!!! And they are together ..or are they? Then again??? Read and find out!!!


Turned into a vampire against her will, twenty-eight-year-old Merit found her way into the dark circle of Chicago’s vampire underground, where she learned there was more to supernaturals than met the eye—and more supernaturals than the public ever imagined.And not all the secrets she learned were for sharing—among humans or inhuman  Now Merit is on the hunt, charging across the stark American Midwest, tailing a rogue supernatural intent on stealing an ancient artifact that could unleash catastrophic evil on the world. But Merit is also the prey. An enemy of Chicagoland is hunting her, and he’ll stop at nothing to get the book for himself. No mercy allowed.

No rules apply. No lives spared. The race is on.

My Thoughts:

An author who takes chances, changes characters, kills characters, makes good guys bad guys and bad guys good guys, leaves the reader *needing* to read the next novel and counting down the days.   The answer?  Chloe Neill.  In this installment of Chicagoland Vampires everything changes, life from ashes, evil from tears, characters who were secondary become main characters or did they? The talented Miss Neill just keeps her readers twisting and turning.  It is almost a love hate relationship LOL.. Her hero is so flawed you wanna smack him and heroine occasionally needs a shake but the fact that you feel so strongly about them shows you how wonderful Chloe is at crafting her characters. Her secondary characters grow with each book at times overshadowing the main characters but that is what makes this series so interesting.  Her plots are fast paced and you have to pay attention to what you are reading or you would be lost. The famous cliffhangers are maddening however you are first in line to preorder the next book and just wish she would write faster.  What I do like is that she resolves the cliffhanger in the book fairly quickly so we can go on to have the plot grow and twist in another direction. Hands down Chloe Neill is one of the best writers in Urban Fantasy today and I for one can't wait until the next book is out! I need me my Ethan fix:)

Sparkly 5 star rating,and a warning to readers...if you have to miss a Chicagoland Vampire book..don't miss this one...it is wonderful. If you haven't yet met Merit and Ethan don't deprive yourself any longer...this is a series worth the read.

  1. MANY thanks, T! I just started the series and I cannot put it down. CN's writing is spot on; I suspect she could very well be writing literature but is obviously much happier with UF. Her dialogue sparkles and he pltting is excellent. Nice world building. Just finishing up Book 2, so you know I went through a, "No sex? WTF?" period but quickly got over it. The stories are just too good.

    Thank you for validating my growing love for Merit; raging curiosity about Ethan; and my smiles for ll the other great characters I cannot wait to see developed. Damn! Wish I read faster! XXX! Cinda
