Editorial Reviews

Veteran dark romance editor Trisha Telep deals out a dozen blood-hot vampire tales by authors including Kelly Armstrong, Holly Black, Libba Bray, Sarah Rees Brennan, Rachel Caine, Cassandra Clare, Melissa De La Cruz, and others.
School Library Journal
Gr 8 Up—This anthology is full of high-quality fiction that mixes some well-established authors of vampire stories with some new ones. The selections have diverse story lines, some strong on the horror component but including lighter fare with some comedy and romance, and an array of writing styles. Vampires are portrayed in a variety of ways along with their history and lore, making this an entertaining read. Particularly noteworthy are Sarah Rees Brennan's "Undead Is Very Hot Right Now," Karen Mahoney's "Falling to Ash," Holly Black's "The Coldest Girl in Coldtown," and Libba Bray's "The Thirteenth Step." These fang-tastic tales are a must for libraries with a strong vampire fan base.—Donna Rosenblum, Floral Park Memorial High School, NY

If you love the paranormal genre than you will love this book. This is a collection of short stories by several talented writers , including Melissa De La Cruz (Blue Bloods), Rachel Caine (Morganville Vampires), and Cassandra Clare (City of Bones). Each individual story takes a different unique view into the dark world of vampires. I'm usually not a compilation type girl. But the lure of reading Rachel Cane's short story made me want to buy it. By buying it for one story it exposed me to other author's literary style in the supernatural genre. I found myself going to the bookstore with a list of books I wouldn't normally purchase. Each individual story was like an appetizer that left me craving more. If your like me, constantly searching for new and better authors to read I highly recommend this book, just beware the title says "story's of blood and desire" but there was no desire...just blood.

I lovedd every single of the short stories collected here. Every single one of them had me on the edge of my seat, wondering what was going to happen next. Some of them I wished were longer and made me thirst for more but the author probably wanted to leave sone things up to the reader's imagination. All in all, it was a great book and I throughly enjoyed the short stories. I would definitely recommend it!
