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.
It took me two and a half months to read this 250 page anthology because I did not like most of the stories. They were boring! I think I only actually liked 3 stories in this book? Initially rated this 3 stars because V.E. Schwab’s “First Kill” is fantastic, but the anthology as a whole doesn’t deserve more than 2 stars. If you are interested in this, I recommend checking this out from the library, reading the stories by authors you like, and skipping the rest.
