'The Eternal Kiss is a vampire fan's dream. No, really -- there are fangs, blood and bad boys aplenty in these thirteen short stories...They're all entertaining and diverse, and cover a wide spectrum of vampire lore. There's romance, action, history, humour, and a good dose of horror -- literally something for everyone. The Eternal Kiss is a great way to get to know some new authors, and is an added bonus for existing fans...From one vampire lover to another, this is a must buy!
--Wondrous Reads

It simply is a marvellous collection and a complete must-read. Each story succeeds at pulling you in and leaving you wanting more.'
--The Bookbag, September 2009

5.0 out of 5 stars Vampire fan? Buy this! 27 Aug 2009
By Jenny, Wondrous Reads TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
The Eternal Kiss is a vampire fan's dream. No, really -- there are fangs, blood and bad boys aplenty in these thirteen short stories. It successfully combines well-known, new and previously unpublished authors, with most of them having already written for the YA genre.

My personal favourite stories are: The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black (vampire venom!), Undead is Very Hot Right Now by Sarah Rees Brennan (can SRB do no wrong?), Other Boys by Cassandra Clare (I just love her writing), All Hallows by Rachel Caine (Morganville story!) and Falling to Ash by Karen Mahoney (great character name - Moth!).

Although I inevitably have my favourites, I enjoyed every story in this anthology. They're all entertaining and diverse, and cover a wide spectrum of vampire lore. There's romance, action, history, humour, and a good dose of horror -- literally something for everyone. The Eternal Kiss is a great way to get to know some new authors, and is an added bonus for existing fans. Whether the stories are standalone or set within an already established world, they're all easy to follow, and will delight even the most casual fan of all things fanged.

From one vampire lover to another, this is a must buy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Review: The Eternal Kiss 27 April 2012
Format:Paperback
'The Eternal Kiss' is an interesting collection of vampire tales brought together in one brilliant volume - twelve of which are original to the anthology.

I occasionally enjoy reading short stories, so I sometimes find myself buying anthologies like this one to satisfy the craving. On the whole I really enjoyed the stories in this collection. They are all, in their own way, incredibly brilliant and whilst some left me cold others made me laugh out loud (really) and wish that I'd thought about vampires like that before. There are several stories in the collection whose author I will be looking up to see if there is more written about them (I hope so).

'Falling to Ash' is definitely one of my favourite stories in the collection. I really liked the main character Moth and the narrative voice. It was nice to re-read 'Shelter Island' which is set in the fantastic Blue Blood verse. 'Sword Point' was an interesting read. 'The Coldest Girl in Coldtown' is centred around a really interesting idea which I would love to see explored. 'Undead is Very Hot Right Now' was an interesting way of looking at the vampire phenomenon, it was a little bit sad and funny. 'Kat' was surprising, but then I should know that things aren't always what they seem in 'the Otherworld'. 'The Thirteenth Step' was great horror, and I think it's the darkest piece in the collection. 'All Hallows' was a brilliant read and made me think I should re-try 'the Morganville Vampires' or maybe not if it has different main characters . . . 'Wet Teeth' had a melancholic feel to it. 'Other Boys' was a surprise and a close second darkest piece in the collection. I really enjoyed the concept of 'Passing', and I really hope there's more in this universe as it is awesome!

4.0 out of 5 stars entertaining 2 Dec 2009
By Potterywhizz VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
Fresh stories with more than a hint of romance. I liked most of them and would re-read a couple which is more than you can say about other vampire-themed anthologies

2.0 out of 5 stars Variations on a very few themes 12 Sep 2010
By Roman Clodia TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Like another reviewer here I was disappointed with this. I think it should be made clear that this anthology is aimed at teen readers - and, sadly, many of the stories read as if they were written by wannabe teenage writers.

Far from being fresh, nearly all the stories are variations on a very few themes:

1. Teen girl has a beautiful vampire boyfriend
2. Teen girl is a vampire (but may not know it)
3. Teen girl is a vampire hunter

All of these have been done before (Twilight, Sookie Stackhouse, Nevermore, Evermore, House of Night, Anita Blake and many others which I haven't read) and done much better. In fact, many of these don't even feel like short stories in that they don't really have a plot or a beginning, middle and end - they feel like a pitch to a publisher or an opening chapter or prologue to something longer.

Anthologies are usually a good place to get a taster of what's out there and discover new writers - would I want to read anything else written by anyone in here? - sadly not.
