Review: Vampires Gone Wild
Vampires Gone Wild by Kerrelyn Sparks
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
V is for VampWoman by Kerrelyn Sparks (4 stars)
This was the story I wanted to read out of this anthology. I love the series and haven't really found any characters I dislike in the bunch. This troy follows Pamela as she further tries to find her more modern self. In catwoman style, she whips up a costume, works on her fighting skills, and ends up throwing herself into the action. Unbeknownst to her, the very viking-like and large warrior (Mikhail) has had his eyes on Pamela for a long time. These two end up forced to address the sizzling sparks that show up between them.
A Forever Love by Pamela Palmer (4 stars)
This world (Vamp City) was completely unique to me. Almost like an alternate dimension, vampires are currently trapped in a mirror image of the city and it's mistakenly sucking humans in and not letting them leave. Liz thought her mysterious boyfriend suddenly left her, when really he had even bigger issues. Turns out he's a vampire and the only thing keeping her from being devoured by the other inhabitants of Vamp City. This couple has some crazy chemistry and it was enough to make me want to find out more about this world.
First Dates Are Hell by Amanda Arista (4 stars)
Wow - I loved the wit and humor in this story! Valiance is a bit of a hermit and the person who runs the supernaturals in town tells him he needs to change his ways. In his first attempt at getting "out there," he asks out a clerk from the store. Sounds innocent enough, but so many things proceed to go wrong (or right?) for this budding couple. There's action, romance, and some adorable first date moments (with a supernatural twist). I really enjoyed this one and will definitely be checking out more from this author.
Blood and Water by Kim Falconer (3 stars)
This story stood out from the rest in that it was more a historical paranormal romance and definitely did not fit into what I considered "vampires." In this story, the vampires are some sort of water bound people who can only survive on land when they take human blood. There is also some sort of compulsion to destruction in their race. Stellan is already fighting against the typical way of life when he spies Angelina and falls instantly in love. These two had a quick and rebellious courtship that ends in a rather surprising way.
