'What would you do if you had unlimited power and eternal life?

Would you…go back to high school? Attend the same classes year after year, going through the pomp and circumstance of one graduation after another, until you found the perfect date to take to prom? Would you…spend your days moping and brooding, finding your only joy in a game of baseball on a stormy day? Or would you…do something else?

The authors of this collection have a few ideas; some fanciful, some humorous, and some as dark as an endless night. Join us, and discover what it truly means to be “vampyre.”

My Thoughts:
I have to admit that I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book because it took me back to the roots of where vampire stories started. Back to where vampires are creatures that have no soul and are meant to be feared rather than befriended or fallen in love with.

None of these stories have vampires that mourn their old existence or crave the company of humans to try and remember what life used to be like. Every creature in this book is evil and heartless and meant to be feared, just the way vampires should be.

All of the stories in this collection are short, sweet and to the point. If you are like me and miss the old fashioned vampire stories before these creatures were glorified and turned into mushy human wannabes, you'll enjoy reading this collection as much as I did.
