About the Author
Chloe Neill was born and raised in the South, but now makes her home in the Midwest--just close enough to Cadogan House and St. Sophia's to keep an eye on things. When not transcribing Merit's and Lily's adventures, she bakes, works, and scours the Internet for good recipes and great graphic design. Chloe also maintains her sanity by spending time with her boys--her favorite landscape photographer and their dogs, Baxter and Scout. (Both she and the photographer understand the dogs are in charge.)

In this installment of the Chicagoland Vampires, it's Valentines Day, but rather than getting to enjoy a romantic night with her love, Merit is tracking down malcontents...groups of humans rioting around the city against vampires. Of course that's not all there is to the story...there's also Malory who is trying to figure out where she goes next as a witch who still doesn't trust her magic. There's Jonah, who's dating. There's the new part of the city government, McKittrick, which no one trusts. Oh, and there's another of the city's vampire house's who have to move into Cadigan house temporarily. It's normal vampire chaos...something Merit should be used to at this point.
But this world was thrust upon her, and she still has moments where she misses the days when she was simply a normal college student...not fighting for her life and her house and her love. The last ten months have given her quite a dramatic change to her life.
I continue to enjoy the series. I have to admit, I'm so glad I took a break from it for a while. Because before I was about ready to give it up entirely. Now it feels fresh and I'm enjoying listening to the books so much more. I already have #9 loaded into my iPod. I can't wait to start it tomorrow.
And I do recommend these on audio. The narrator is brilliant and I love her many, many, many voices. This is a diverse cast of characters and Sophie Eastlake does a brilliant job with all of them. I love her narration.
With the plot this time with the riots, a couple of chapters in I had already figured out all of who was involved, so I didn’t like that it ended up being that obvious only a short time into the book. Anyway, in BITING BAD we get to get to know the Grey House a little bit more. I have been a big fan of that House since we got introduced to Jonah and I wanted to know more about him and Grey House and I’m glad we got that. I loved learning a little bit more about the Vampire Master of Grey House, Scott as well!
We still have cute Merit and Ethan moments. GP drama, which I hope in the next couple of book that the GP nonsense ends, it’s getting a little old that centuries old vampire acting like spoiled little brats. And I just really enjoyed all main and side characters a like. I especially love the Ethan. Gabriel. And the car bit. Men and their cars.
But I have a major rant here! Ethan battles a vampire that he ends up killing in battle and the CPD aka Humans come to arrest him?! Seriously?! You can’t arrest a vampire! If the other guy killed Ethan he wouldn’t be charged with anything, But seriously Humans! Vampire Rule is different and has nothing to do with humans! I’m just saying that was the dumbest ending ever. I’m disappointed in the ending. Other than the ridiculous excuse for a cliffhanger ending the rest was really good. Looking forward to see what transpires next.
