What would you do if you had unlimited power and eternal life?

Would you...go back to high school? Attend the same classes year after year, going through the pomp and circumstance of one graduation after another, until you found the perfect date to take to prom? Would you...spend your days moping and brooding, finding your only joy in a game of baseball on a stormy day? Or would something else? Anything else?

The authors of this collection have a few ideas; some fanciful, some humorous, and some as dark as an endless night. Join us, and discover what it truly means to be "vampyre."

This isn't your daughter's vampire novel. Vampires Don't Sparkle is an amazing collection of fiction that features vampires at their most evil. While I'm a huge fan of Twilight, I loved this collection. I believe that What Once Was Flesh was my favorite, but they were all so good. Still, What Once Was Flesh had such a twist at the end that I just loved it. If you want to read a collection of stories that feature the vampire that Bram Stoker created, you need to read this book! a Rafflecopter giveaway
