Publisher's Summary

Turned into a vampire against her will, 28-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 inhumans.
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.

BAH!!! Change of Narrator

Sorry Sophie Eastlake but it's bad form to do a sequel book and not even try to sound like the original narrator! Oh I so hope they bring back Cynthia Halloway for the next book.

For fans of the series, it's not so heinous that you can't still listen with ease but after 5 books the voices are ingrained so it will annoy you a bit.

As for the story? It's another chapter in the ongoing dramas of Merrit, Mallory, the Cadogan House and all the other people in the orbit. Has a start, middle and end so now you are just waiting to see what happens in the next book as there are still a few loose ends.

Worth the credit, not brain surgery but a pleasurable way to use a few hours listening.

oh, NO!!!

It's a measure of how much I enjoy this series that I purchased Biting Cold on the day of publication. All that day I looked forward to listening...I pressed play and...wait, what is this? This isn't Merit!!

Biting Cold has a new narrator. So characters have new voices. And words have new pronunciations.

So much for snuggling in with a old friend.

The change in narrator is so disorienting that it's difficult to separate the story from the performance. It does seem that the pacing is far slower than in the previous five books, and that the characters have changed--their personalities are different. I wonder if Chloe Neill had the time she needed to polish this book--or if she's bored with Merit and Cadogan House.

I am really disappointed.
