Vampires Gone Wild
on 12 February 2013
Vampires Gone Wild is an anthology made up of 4 vampire romances written by different authors. Generally it was an ok collection, I enjoyed every story but there was only one that I truly loved and that was First Dates are Hell by Amanda Arista.
Vampires Gone Wild by Kerrelyn Sparks:
This novella was alright; to be honest I think you need to have read more books from the Love at Stake series to truly get this one. It was written well but I couldn't get into it. I felt like the characters had a back history that I should have known about but didn't.
A Forever Love by Pamela Palmer
I thought the idea behind this one was a really good one. The plot was interesting and felt fresh, I really liked the characters, they were easy to like and the romance was believable. What irritated me was the terms of endearments that were frequently used. If I heard `my warrior' or `Lizzy mine' ago I would have screamed.
First Dates are Hell by Amanda Arista
This was by far the best story of the lot, it really impressed me. There was nothing I disliked about it, the storyline was great, the characters loveable and the romance adorable. It was really, really cute and it completely charmed me. I cannot wait to read more from this author.
Blood and Water by Kim Falconer
This was my least favourite of the bunch. I found it bizarre and half the time I didn't know what was going on. It failed to grab my interest and I skimmed quite a lot of it.
Vampires Gone Wild is an ok anthology but I was expecting more.
