Sometimes you want to be a part of something bigger than you. But when it’s vampires doing all kinds of untold things to your body… is it really worth it? Or is it more intriguing to become something far more?


I was a little eh about this story. It wasn’t horrible and stomach turning like some of the short stories that have come before. But it also wasn’t the kind of tale that I’ll remember for a long time. Even writing this review is a little difficult because it is already starting to feel a little faded.

The part of this story that I enjoyed the most was the fact that the lead was a dhampir. It gave them a whole other level of strength and mystery. One that I didn’t quite figure out until the end. But then I can’t quite remember why either…
