We study a coevolution voter model on a complex network. A mean-field approximation reveals an absorbing transition from an active to a frozen phase at a critical value [see text for formula] that only depends on the average degree micro of the network. In finite-size systems, the active and frozen phases correspond to a connected and a fragmented network, respectively. The transition can be seen as the sudden change in the trajectory of an equivalent random walk at the critical point, resulting in an approach to the final frozen state whose time scale diverges as tau approximately |p(c) - p|(-)} near p
