Vampires Never Get Old - Book Review


Vampires Never Get Old: Tales with Fresh Bite

What is it about:
Eleven fresh vampire stories from young adult fiction’s leading voices!

In this delicious new collection, you’ll find stories about lurking vampires of social media, rebellious vampires hungry for more than just blood, eager vampires coming out―and going out for their first kill―and other bold, breathtaking, dangerous, dreamy, eerie, iconic, powerful creatures of the night.

Welcome to the evolution of the vampire―and a revolution on the page.

Vampires Never Get Old includes stories by authors both bestselling and acclaimed, including Samira Ahmed, Dhonielle Clayton, Zoraida Córdova and Natalie C. Parker, Tessa Gratton, Heidi Heilig, Julie Murphy, Mark Oshiro, Rebecca Roanhorse, Laura Ruby, Victoria “V. E.” Schwab, and Kayla Whaley

What did I think of it:
When I saw the names Rebecca Roanhorse and Victoria Schwab on the cover of this anthology I had to get it!

And this is a great anthology.

There are of course stories I loved more than others, but that's always the case in anthologies. I absolutely loved The Boys From Blood River by Rebecca Roanhorse. Easily the best story in the anthology for me at least. The atmosphere in this story was just perfect. 

I also really liked Senior Year Sucks by Julie Murphy, The Boy And The Bell by Heidi Heilig, A Guidebook For The Newly Sired Desi Vampire by Samira Ahmed, and In Kind by Kayla Whaley.

The other stories were all enjoyable as well, but in a less memorable way as the stories mentioned above.

All in all this is a very enjoyable collection of vampire stories, where the vampires have been updated a bit to fit in today's world instead of living in the past. I can advice it to anyone who loves vampires.

Why should you read it:
 It's a great anthology filled with vampires.
