Kisses from Hell YP FIC KISSES

Some of the biggest names in young adult paranormal romance all come together in this short story collection about the passions and perils of vampire love. Kristin Cast co-writer of the House of Night series, Alyson Noël author of the The Immortals series, Richelle Mead author of the Vampire Academy books, Francesca Lia Block author of Pretty Dead, and Kelley Armstrong author of the Women of the Underworld series each pen a tale about love that will never die (I mean unless it gets exposed to sunlight or staked through the heart).

This is the perfect book for all those Twilight fans thinking “Now what do I read?” Kisses introduces readers to five different authors and I think everyone that reads this will find at LEAST one new favorite. My favorite story was Mead’s Sunshine. It gives an interesting piece of backstory to her excellent Vampire Academy series. I also liked the super dark and moody Lillith by Fracesca Lia block. It’s a reimagining of the biblical story of Adam’s evil first wife and it stands out as being the most serious of the stories. All in all this is a total must read for any vampire romance fan.
