Product Description

Product Description

'The Lust for Blood' is a collection of thirteen grisly short stories written by the author Charmain Marie Mitchell.

The stories range in size from 1,400 words to 9,800 and focuses on the complexities of the human mind (with a couple of supernatural tales thrown in for good measure). There is nothing so complicated as a human being and sometimes nothing so horrific!


A Passion for Death - Never published before. A new twist on an old tale.

Beecham Manor - Never published before. A ghostly tale from Cornwall.

Sometimes Sacrifices need to be made - Previously published story

By Diogenes
This is a very short tale, but nicely put together. It shows how the craving for fame can unbalance the impressionable mind.

The Stalker – Previously published story.

By Angel Marie Jobe
I really liked it the way the drama and suspense keep going and going it was one of the coolest books I've read in a long time

By Karen Massari
This piece did not come across as a short story, it was more like a bold painting. My heart is still racing from reading it.

Punishment Time – Previously published story.

By Ethel Barkley
Courious insight into the mind ! Abuse at any level can have deep seated and lasting consequeses. Punishment Time delves into the hatred that can result from such action. All should read as I did after downloading from to my Kindle Fire

Scorned – Never published before. A tale about when love goes wrong.

The Vampire Requiem – Previously published story.

By Robin E Liston
When 252 year old Edward Manning falls in love with Maria, a beautiful young lady, he decides that he can't live without her, and plans to tell her that he's a vampire. If his love is rejected, Edward will end his long, lonely life. How will she react? Will she choose to spend an eternity with him, or reject him? But, as fate would have it, their lives are intertwined in an unexpected way.

This short story by Charmain, allows us a brief look into the life of a modern day vampire. When Edward finally decides to reveal himself to Maria, and shows her the "face of a true vampire," her reaction causes an event that will catch you by surprise.
I look forward to reading more stories by Charmain Mitchell.

The Rape of Suzy J – Never published before. Chilling tale of rape and murder.

Cyber Scream – Never published before. A story about misplaced jealousy.

Tudor Witch – Previously published story.
By Lord D. M. Prosser (UK
Let me say straight away that Charmain Mitchell is an expert at description. By the time I'd heard how Kezziah looked I had no problem in visualising her.By the time I'd finished the story and had read the description of what acts she had to perform I wasn't sure I'd ever sleep again.
This book 'Perpetual Hell' manages in it's few short pages to cram in more than many full novels do but believe me the heroine is not someone you'll cheer for. Despite the great love she's meant to hold all I could remember was that her smile didn't reach the eyes.
I'm certainly not sure I'd want a youngster reading this but no doubt they've all heard worse at hallowen. I am sure though that most young adults will enjoy the style of this young writer and the fifteen minutes of pure hell the reading gives them.

The Man in the Mirror – Never published before. Tale of a fragmented mind.

Food for Thought – Never published before. A tasty tale of fear.

The Beings – Never published before. A story of a blood lust that will consume the world.

Throughout her life, Charmain has wanted to become an author, but family and business commitments stood in the way and her writing consisted of a few short stories on the rare occasion that she had time to write them. In late 2012 a freak accident finally allowed time for Charmain to indulge in her passion for writing.

I couldn't stick with this free book because the quality of the writing was so poor.
The plot ideas did not compensate for this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining & Different Tales 28 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed the short stories in this collection. All were unique and each had a twist. There's a mix of horror, thriller, mystery and romance in here. From vampires to witches, the author has all the main supernatural beings covered. I like the way the author writes from the point of view of the main character in most of the stories, but there are a few where this isn't the case and that adds to the variety. Each tale is just a few pages long, so you can easily read one or two in a tea break or before bed. The brevity of the stories doesn't detract from the suspense and pace of the writing, and this is what makes this such a good read. My only criticism is that there are a few spelling and punctuation errors (but nothing that a good edit wouldn't sort) and it's only for this reason that I've given it 4 rather than 5 stars. Definitely worth downloading.
