Zoe teaches a professor not to play with the occult unless he is prepared to deal with the consequences.


Every time I read a short story featuring Zoe Tanaka, I fall a little more in love with her. Her unique outlook and career as a vampire was certainly fascinating in Broken, but it isn’t until you get the privilege of knowing her more that the enigma that is Zoe is truly revealed. Unlike initial impressions (mostly by Elena), Zoe isn’t a weak, scared pushover, she is exactly the opposite. And her ability to manipulate a situation to suit herself, without resorting to violence is a great draw in for her character and the storyline.

I love the idea that, although Zoe is escaping a stalker, the entire story is about teaching the next generation of supernaturals. Her sass and humour at such a task is irreplaceable. But, it is ultimately her willingness to teach others, instead of taking revenge or feeling bitter at her situation that makes me love her even more.
