There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I guess the VtR bit about "personal gothic horror" is what they are going for bit I found it incredibly boring, to the point I only made out halfway thru the book. Maybe the second half was what the other 2 reviewers liked, but I couldn't slog thru anymore. 90% of the protagonists hated themselves, hated being vampires, hated drinking blood to the point that they frenzied and killed when they got too hungry to hold off anymore, and thus hated themselves for "having to kill." Moody, broody, angsty, angry, bitter ... One of those describes one of the characters. Zzzzzzzzzz. Any sort of variety on a theme of 'being a vampire sucks'? No? ..... Ok
Another problem is that while I know anthologies are a bunch of short stories, this tried to fit so many in that each author only had 10ish pages to play with. You can't do anything with that besides set up an easy problem and immediately end with "maybe it gets better later, probably not, but *shrug*" . . Again. Zzzzzzz.
The funny thing is, of the 5 or 6 that I read, the first one (which is the sample) was the one that I liked the most (which wasn't saying much). It had a set-up, conflict, and ending that didn't have to do with fighting yourself/your beast. So you're going to have to decide if you like 1800a gothic horror where there's an inordinate amount of introspection, most everyone is unhappy and/or dies, and it ends on a properly unhappy-ever-after note.
