More Anthologies - Immortal: Love Stories With Bite

An anthology is one book with several short stories in it (mostly by different authors). You get several short "books" in one single book. Great if you don't have too much time to read (i.e. when traveling, before going to bed, etc.) or if you want to discover new authors. This week on YA Vampire Books, I will future several anthologies with a supernatural theme. First up is: Immortal: Love Stories With Bite.

Titel: Immortal: Love Stories With Bite
Authors: Rachel Caine, Cynthia Leitich Smith, Claudia Gray, Richelle Mead, Nancy Holder, Kristin Cast & Tanith Lee
Publisher: BenBella (2008)

Vampires are all the rage, from television shows to feature films to bestselling book series. Across the board, if you’re into vampires, you can find something to hold your attention.

In Immortal: Love Stories With Bite, edited by New York Times bestselling author of the House of Night series P.C. Cast, seven of today's most popular YA vampire and contemporary fantasy authors offer new short stories that prove that when you're immortal, true love really is forever.

Rachel Caine (the Morganville Vampires series) revisits the setting of her popular series, where the vampires are in charge and love is risky.

Cynthia Leitich Smith (Tantalize) gives us a love triangle between a vampire, a ghost and a human girl, in which none of them are who or what they seem

Claudia Gray (Evernight) takes us into the world of her Evernight series, in which a pre-Civil War courtesan-to-be is courted by a pale, fair-haired man whose attentions are too dangerous to spurn

Richelle Mead (the Vampire Academy series) brings us the tale of a young vampire on the run from the rest of her kind, and the human boy who provides the getaway car

Nancy Holder (the Wicked series, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) immerses us in a post-apocalyptic New York where two best friends are forced to make a choice that may kill them both

Kristin Cast (the House of Night series) introduces us to a new kind of vampire: one with roots in Greek mythology, and the power to alter space and time

And Tanith Lee (Black Unicorn) shows us what happens when a bright young woman with some supernatural savvy encounters a misguided (but gorgeous) young vampire.

- Sounds like a great anthology with some great authors! I'm especially interested in reading Caine's and Mead's stories. Tanith Lee's and Cynthia Leitich Smith's stories sounds great too - and these are two authors I haven't tried before, so that will be fun! -
