I just let out a mental squee! It would have been verbal but I am at work. Cynthia L. Smith rocked this vampire story.
When I read synopsis, I was thinking the BBC show 'Being Human' which had me excited. Now, it was not like the show at all but I am still excited. I am now hopeful of the rest of the stories in this anthology.
Cody the main character was a breath of fresh air. I hardly ever read from male pov if its not female its usually split. I thought I wouldn't like it but it was surprisingly comfortable. I didn't have any problems relating. It was a love triangle, which I generally not just hate but loathe! But Smith did it completely right. She had your gut pulling for the one who was meant to be.
I forget how much I adore short stories, because it is almost impossible to be a dragging story. And sometimes after reading a lengthy novel a short story is exactly what you need. If you find that, this is where you are at ever, I recommend this be the one.
