I am excited to welcome author Chloe Neill, who is getting ready to release her sixth Chicagoland Vampires novel, Biting Cold. Literary Escapism has the next world in the Biting Cold Scavenger Hunt and we have a pretty sweet contest to go along with it as well.
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.
Want to know what we thought here at LE? Here are the reviews by Jackie and Nicole. Make sure you stick around to the end. We’ll be giving away a copy of Biting Cold.

Meet Chloe Neill!
Chloe Neill is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Chicagoland Vampires and Dark Elite series.
She 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/husband and their dogs, Baxter and Scout. (Both she and the photographer understand the dogs are in charge.)

Thank you Chloe for letting Literary Escapism take part in the Biting Cold scavenger hunt!
Chloe is giving away a copy of Biting Cold and a package of Chicagoland Vampires and Dark Elite swag. To enter, all you have to do is answer this one question: What do you think Mallory’s punishment should be once she’s caught? What are you most anticipating from Biting Cold? Remember, you must answer the question in order to be entered.
Even though I’m not giving the additional entries any more, you can still help support the author by sharing their article, and this contest, on your blog, Twitter, Facebook, or anywhere you can. After all, the more people who are aware of this fabulous author ensures we get more fabulous stories.
The winner must post a review of the novel someplace. Whether it is on their own blog, Amazon, GoodReads, LibraryThing or wherever, it doesn’t matter. Just help get the word out.
The contest will stay open until August 15th at which time I’ll determine the winner with help from the snazzy new plug-in I have.
