To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This is an anthology of vampire stories. They are all good although some stand out to me. Linnea Renee Hieber’s world is one I want to see more of. Renard Duvall is a character I hope to see more of from Cliff Biggers. There’s also new Sonja Blue from Nancy Collins (a treat), a new Bubba story from John Hartness and the return of Deacon Chalk from James Ray Tuck.
The rest of the stories are excellent additions to the vampiric lore.

An Unholy Thirst: Fifteen Vampire Tales
I read a story this morning that really sent a chill right through me..
A story written by Chris McAuley titled: Van Helsing’s Revenge: A Tale from the Stokerverse.. What a thrill ride it was to travel through the mind of the most iconic Vampire Hunter in history Van Helsing! It was painful and sad to see a family ripped apart like that, which makes it real life horror for me. (Minus The Vampires) I plan to read through this entire collection to see what else is lurking between the pages.
The line that hit me the hardest was this one:
“Johann cast down his axe, reached into his pocket and thrust the sacred object towards his undead mother”.
Let’s just say you need to grab a copy of this anthology. I would recommend this collection to anyone who has a passion for pure horror. 5 stars! Chris has a way with words that made me feel like I was there. If a story can do that then you know it’s fantastic!
