My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Seize the Night is a collection of new short stories all featuring vampires. These are not the glittery sexy type of vampires but a return to the chill down your spine scary vampires. A challenge was given to the authors to put the horror back into vampire fiction which I think they lived up to wonderfully.

Out of the 20 stories in the collection of course there are some I liked more than others but I’d say I’d probably rate them all between 3-5 stars so I went with 4 stars overall. I’d love to do a description on each story but I don’t want to give too much away with them being short so I’ll just say that any fan of horror should find a few of these they’d love.

The collection includes titles from Scott Smith, Seanan McGuire, Michael Koryta, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Gary A. Braunbeck, Charlaine Harris, Laird Barron, Dana Cameron, Kelley Armstrong, Tim Lebbon, Dan Charon and Lynda Barry, Leigh Perry, John Langan, Joe McKinney, Robert Shearman, Lucy A. Snyder, Brian Keene, Rio Youers, John Ajvide Lindqvist, and David Wellington.

Overall, a great read for horror fans and those that love vampire tales. If not familiar with some of the authors this is a great way to check out their writing style.

I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
