Teeth: Vampire Tales by Ellen Datlow, Terri Windling

The first bite is only the beginning.

Twenty of today's favorite writers explore the intersections between the living, dead, and undead. Their vampire tales range from romantic to chilling to gleeful—and touch on nearly every emotion in between.

Neil Gaiman's vampire-poet in "Bloody Sunrise" is brooding, remorseful, and lonely. Melissa Marr's vampires make a high-stakes game of possession and seduction in "Transition." And in "Why Light?" Tanith Lee's lovelorn vampires yearn most of all for the one thing they cannot have—daylight. Drawn from folk traditions around the world, popular culture, and original interpretations, the vampires in this collection are enticingly diverse.

But reader beware: The one thing they have in common is their desire for blood. . . .

Wow, this one is packed with adventure. This one is best suited for older teens since there seems to be a bit more violence, sexual situations and language than the average vampire tale. Three stories really stood out for me: Best Friends Forever by Cecil Castelucci which is a twisted tale about a girl who is allergic to the sun becomes BFFs with a vampire when they meet at night school. Both yearn for a normal life and seem to find a bit of happiness in each others company. Transition by Melissa Marr in which a newly minted vampire learns the way of her new world and with a lot of wit and sarcasm finds a new path. The Perfect Dinner Party by Cassandra Clare and Holly Black is almost a Victorian short story with a wicked twist at the end. I guess when you look at who the writers are, it completely makes sense.

This eerie collection features nineteen pieces by authors such as Neil Gaiman (THE GRAVEYARD BOOK), Melissa Marr (WICKED LOVELY series), Cassandra Clare (CLOCKWORK ANGEL) and Holly Black (THE CURSE WORKERS and GOOD NEIGHBORS series). The first story in the anthology is "Things to Know About Being Dead" by Genevieve Valentine. After surviving a car accident, Suyin discovers that she's not quite alive and not quite dead. She has become a jiang-shi, and she must drink blood to experience any kind of life. In this darkly ironic story, Suyin details twenty-three things she learns about life once she's dead. In "Sunbleached" by Nathan Ballingrud, Joshua finds out the hard way that vampires do exist and that taunting one that has been caught in the sun is not a good idea. Frustrated by his parents' divorce and his mother's new boyfriend, Joshua is looking for a change. But, the change he gets is not necessarily the one he wants. Cassandra Clare and Holly Black collaborate on the story "The Perfect Dinner Party" to create one of the creepiest vampires in the collection. Their story follows six twisted rules of etiquette for the newly-formed vampire who wants to please his/her master. Readers who enjoy first-person narrators will find this tale an intriguing one! If you're looking for paranormal romance, avoid this book. However, if you want to read stories that could keep you awake at night, this is a great choice! It is a truly enjoyable romp through the afterlife!
