Readable but nothing to be excited about
on October 26, 2012
I read this series of books because I've been a fan of Rain's other books. These stories were not terrible, but they didn't move me either.
Cursed is the story of a man cursed by a witch for his part in the death of her granddaughter. There were some interesting ideas in the story, but I disliked the protagonist so much, I was hoping he would die at the end.
Ghost College is the story of a ghost debunking/removal team coming up against a haunting at a college. While it was an alright read with potentially interesting ideas it felt flat and uninspired.
The Vampire Club is a campy vampire novel which may have been a fun short story, but which grinds on with goofball, tiring cliches and characters. It was meant to be light and silly, but is short on real laughs. Again, hard to care about the characters.
Bad Blood is about a jaded vampire troubleshooter who gets dragged into a mildly Cthulu-esque plot. This story is the best of the bunch and worth the read.
Overall, I wouldn't recommend paying more than a buck for this set of stories.
