Bite is a collection of five short stories from Laurell K Hamilton (her Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter series), Charlaine Harris (a Sookie Stackhouse short story), MaryJanice Davidson, Angela Knight and Vickie Taylor. I was very familiar with the first two authors but had read nothing of the other three.

Overall this collection was disappointing to me. Although the Laurell Hamilton story "The Girl Who Was Infatuated With Death" was OK it wasn't particularly deep (yes, I know it's a short story and so has limited space). It is set in the interval between Blue Moon and Obsidian Butterfly but fortunately hasn't descended, at that point, into the soft porn that the Anita Blake novels have turned into. The story itself is fairly simple and its resolution is really a chance to enable the main characters Anita Blake and Jean-Claude the Master Vampire to meet again. It was a perfectly acceptable story but nothing to get really excited about.

The Charlaine Harris story "One Word Answer" is set at the end of the third or fourth Sookie Stackhouse novel where Sookie and Vampire Bill are just friends rather than lovers. It features a strange night visit to Sookie's house of an unknown vampire who comes bringing news of a legacy left to Sookie by a cousin who, it turns out, was a vampire and was staked the previous month. There's more going on than the story suggests and, for once, Sookie realises this before Bill Compton or Bubba, her two neighbourly vampires. This is a fun little story but doesn't add much overall to this series.

The third story, "Biting in Plain Sight" by MaryJanice Davidson was really good and worked pretty well as a standalone story. I don't know if this author has written anything else on this theme, but if so this would inspire me to read it.

had picked up this book because it had a short story by MaryJanice Davidson inside and I really enjoy all of her books. Imagine my surprise that it also carried a short story featuring Sookie Stackhouse, a character in a book series by Charlaine Harris that I am currently reading. The story comes before book 6 since it details when Sookie discovers her cousin has been murdered and left Sookie her estate. This story is touched upon in book six, Definately Dead, when the author talks about why Sookie is going to New Orleans. I really enjoyed the stories in this novel and may have found some new authors to read thanks to it

I'm not a great fan of short stories but these are all good and a treat to read! Five stories in all including an Anita Blake tale from Laurell K Hamilton, a Sookie Stackhouse tale from Charlaine Harris, a nice little story from the Queen of the Dead series (Betsy Taylor) by MaryJanice Davidson and two more entertaining otherworldly offerings from Angela Knight and Vickie Taylor. There wasn't one I didn't enjoy (apart from the usual gripe that they're too short!) and if you're already a fan of any of the above you will enjoy this book. If you are not familiar with any of these writers then this is an opportunity to get a 'feel' for someone you haven't read before and want to try out, these writers are all good and if you enjoy fantasy they will soon become favourites. Definitely worth adding to your collection!

Another mix of authors and there tales of vampires and the likes. I really did read this for the Angela Knight story with her witches and magic. This author was quite witty yet her story was compelling and so easy to read.
