The premise of the V Wars books is that a piece of dormant human DNA somehow become activated creating vampires and werewolfs. The first book dealt with the original event and its immediate aftermath. V Wars: Night Terrors takes place at least eighteen months or more after the original event. A war has broken out between the “beats” (normal humans) and the “bloods” (vampires). It is not that simple though. It is not just human vs. inhuman. Some humans work with vampires and some vampires with humans. Some are trying to eradicate the others while some are trying to find a way to coexist.
I did enjoy Night Terrors but not as much as the original V Wars. One reason was there was more sex. I thought it was unnecessary for moving the story forward. It just seemed to be gratuitous, like the nudity in Game of Thrones. The other problem I had was the types of vampires. In V Wars, there are vampires, period. There are the beginnings of an introduction to specialization within the species but in Night Terrors it explodes. There were so many different types of vampires with different abilities and exotic names I could not keep them straight. At all. Just mentioning what type of vampire one was did not tell me if it was sun sensitive, extra strong or drank life essence instead of blood. It was just too much to keep track of for me.
I did enjoy what I perceived as social commentary. In one story, “A Day in the Life” part 9, the action centers around the man who produces vampire reality shows. His biggest hit follows female vampires who live in the Hamptons. They discuss whether to have their fangs gold tipped and if chinchilla blood really the best. Think of Real Housewives of wherever gone horribly wrong and you get the idea. He also produced shows that were vampire on vampire violence, even an Amish Vampire, which he admitted was totally scripted.
The production values were perfect. The narration was excellent. I think Stefan Rudnicki sounds like the author Benjamin Percy and had to check the credits to see who it was narrating. Gabrielle de Cuir and Stephen Hoye were fantastic. Jamye Meri Grant was great. The only problem I had was Sunil Malhotra. He has a lovely voice but at times he spoke too softly. I would need to back up, raise the volume and then lower the volume after that particular passage. Overall it was an excellent audiobook. I would rate it 4 out of 5 stars overall: Plot 4, Performance 5, Production 5, and Attention holding 4.

I cannot get enough V Wars; I read the comic, listen to the audio books, and I am excited as I wait for the V Wars Board Game coming out December 18. These collections of short stories have been a journey; each installment adding to and progressing the already vast world. It started with a seemingly simple idea that has spread and grown into it’s own entity, it’s own world.
There are so very many different types of vampires in these stories, all specific to one’s ancestry. The tales told within match the broad scope of the vampires themselves, covering many different aspects of human, and now vampire, life. They are all intriguing; luring you in, each story individually, with a distinct perspective in relation to the Vampire Wars, and a unique story to be told. Most of them kept me very interested. Which is impressive for an anthology, as jumping from one writing style to an entirely different one can sometimes take me out of the story. This did not, thanks in large to the editor.
As editor, contributor, and creator of the V Wars franchise, Jonathan Maberry shows us all yet again he is an expert in storytelling. The editing was exceptionally done. He brought together individual stories and writing styles in a way the kept the momentum throughout and the story cohesive. Blending black-op thrillers, horror, political intrigue, and drug wars with vampires seems a daunting task in my eyes. My hat is off.
Just as well done was the narration. With veterans like Stefan Rudnicki and Gabrielle de Cuir at the helm it was really no surprise. Every reader delivered a great performance that matched the setting and characteristics of each tale. The sounds were crisp and clean with no background noise. The talented folks at Skyboat Media and Blackstone deliver yet again.
There is definitely something to like for most people between these pages. The ingredients of these chronicles are blended perfectly. It’s almost as good and The Hippo’s frosting.
