The war is tearing our world apart. Instead of big armies with tanks in the field, the Vampire War is fought in the streets, neighbor against neighbor, family against family. Anyone can turn at any time. The blood hunger can suddenly appear in the middle of a kiss. The person who sleeps next to you every night could wake up in the dead of night … hungry. So hungry.
V Wars: Night Terrors collects all-new stories from the reporters embedded with the beats (humans) and the bloods (vampires). Each tale explores the nature of terror and peels back another layer of our comfort. Each tale bares our throat to the bite. New York Times bestselling author Jonathan Maberry and his team of frontline storytellers bring you all-new tales of horror and heroism, of pain and delight, of deadly despair and soaring courage. The war between beats and bloods is blazing. Pick a side.

I cannot get enough V Wars; I read the comic, listen to the audio books, and I am excited as I wait for the V Wars Board Game coming out December 18. These collections of short stories have been a journey; each installment adding to and progressing the already vast world. It started with a seemingly simple idea that has spread and grown into it’s own entity, it’s own world.
There are so very many different types of vampires in these stories, all specific to one’s ancestry. The tales told within match the broad scope of the vampires themselves, covering many different aspects of human, and now vampire, life. They are all intriguing; luring you in, each story individually, with a distinct perspective in relation to the Vampire Wars, and a unique story to be told. Most of them kept me very interested. Which is impressive for an anthology, as jumping from one writing style to an entirely different one can sometimes take me out of the story. This did not, thanks in large to the editor.
As editor, contributor, and creator of the V Wars franchise, Jonathan Maberry shows us all yet again he is an expert in storytelling. The editing was exceptionally done. He brought together individual stories and writing styles in a way the kept the momentum throughout and the story cohesive. Blending black-op thrillers, horror, political intrigue, and drug wars with vampires seems a daunting task in my eyes. My hat is off.
Just as well done was the narration. With veterans like Stefan Rudnicki and Gabrielle de Cuir at the helm it was really no surprise. Every reader delivered a great performance that matched the setting and characteristics of each tale. The sounds were crisp and clean with no background noise. The talented folks at Skyboat Media and Blackstone deliver yet again.
There is definitely something to like for most people between these pages. The ingredients of these chronicles are blended perfectly. It’s almost as good and The Hippo’s frosting.
