Review: Biting Cold

Biting Cold
Chloe Neill
ISBN: 9780451237019

Blurb From The Publisher:

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 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.

Our Thoughts On:

                With Ethan’s return you would think that Merit would have some time to reconnect with her Liege, but alas there are bigger problems afoot. Merit yearns to take Ethan to some quite corner but that soon does not come to pass when their old nemesis Tate breaks from his prison and runs amuck across Chicago and further. Mallory has been on the run but soon she tries new spells to unleash the Maleficium that has dire consequences.

                With fast paced action and much sword wielding, Merit is pushed past her limits almost till breaking in Biting Cold, leaving readers gasping and pinning for more. Struggling to right the wrongs and defend humans and vampires alike, Merit makes an exchange no one saw coming that could have a dire outcome. Will Merit be able to resolve her relationship with Ethan, while also trying to save the day? Ethan soon finds that his connection to Mallory runs deeper and more catastrophic than before and could he become a liability. As if there was not already enough on everyone’s plate new supernatural break to the humans that bring a while new host of challenges to Cadogan House  just as Merit is rescued from.

                With a new demon in the midst and also unrest as far as the continuation of Cadogan House is concerned, Biting Cold delivers readers a punch and a fabulous new novel set in the Chicagoland Vampires Series. Merit is constantly put to the test to prove herself and will Biting Cold push Merit past her comfort point? Ethan was a godsend, but will he surrender to his feelings for Merit as she needs him to instead of keeping her at arm’s distance. Biting Cold leaves readers with a satisfying book finish, but also dangles enough new fodder for the next book to leave readers gasping for more.
