Bites: Ten Tales of Vampires Ebook Review

I received a free copy of Bites:Ten Tales of Vampires edited by Rayne Hall free to review.

List of stories:

1. TANGLED DREAMS by Liv Rancourt
Sometimes it's safer to leave history's secrets alone.

My thoughts. I loved this one even though it had a cliff hangar type ending. I would enjoy this if it were made into a longer book. Rodrick is one naughty vampire.

2. REALITY BITES! by Jim Bernheimer
Vampires have problems just like the rest of us.

My thoughts:This one was really funny. Very enjoyable

3. NIGHT TRAIN by Rayne Hall
The train is about to enter a tunnel - and vampires are on board.

My thoughts: Very spooky with an unexpected ending. Great read!

4. WINTER FLOWER by Jonathan Broughton
Dark desires unfurl where shadows thrive.

My thoughts: This one was romantic and I liked the period in which the story was set. Very good story.

5. IT'S IN YOUR BLOOD by Pamela Turner
Be careful when accepting an invitation.

My thoughts:Very sad with a very bad outcome. Wasn't one of my favorites from this list of stories.

6. THE LAND OF THE RISING SUN by Debbie Christiana
When you help someone, it may come back to bite you.

My thoughts: A little too short. I would have liked to have read more about the characters. Interesting plot though.

7. THE FLEDGLING DOUBT by Lana Bange
What if you're one moment too late to protect a victim?

My thoughts: The plot was good but the dream sequence in the story threw me off a little. An okay story.

8. THE DHAMPIR'S KISS by Carole Ann Moleti
Can any vow survive immortal life?

My thoughts: Erotica with vampires,witches and supernatural elements. Some things were really brutal.

9. EXILE by April Grey
Death could be just the beginning.

My thoughts: I liked the humanity the vampire had in this story. It was sad but a good read.

10. WHY I WON'T READ SONG OF SOLOMON by Douglas Kolacki
A vampire may feed off a victim without leaving bite marks on the neck.

My thoughts: I thought the vampire in this story was rather selfish. Interesting read on energy vampirism.

*Some of these stories have been previously published in magazines and e-zines.

In conclusion,the book itself as a whole has some interesting vampire stories. I liked that it had different elements. Not just blood drinkers but other types of vampirism as well.

If you would like to obtain your own copy of this Ebook,please visit Amazon.com.

Thanks and happy reading!
