Publisher's Summary

It's been one year since a virus triggered junk DNA and people all over the world started changing, becoming something else, craving blood. It's been 10 months since the word vampire stopped being something from old monster stories and Hollywood movies. It's been six months since our world and theirs erupted into war, two since an uneasy peace was signed, and one hour since that peace was shattered. The war is here again - the vampire war. Our world will burn; our world will bleed. When anyone can turn, when every street is a battlefield, there is nowhere to run.

V Wars: Blood and Fire features all-new stories of the Vampire Wars by Kevin J. Anderson, Scott Sigler, Larry Correia, Joe McKinney, Yvonne Navarro, Weston Ochse, James A. Moore, and Jonathan Maberry.

The complete list of narrators includes: Gabrielle de Cuir, Jamye Grant, Richard Gilliland, Roxanne Hernandez, Stephen Hoye, Sunil Malhotra, Arthur Morey, and Stefan Rudnicki.

    "Even better than the 1st, mostly"

    As the headline suggests, I greatly enjoyed this sequel as the tone of the stories have shifted and we finally begin the see the emergence of the actual vampire war. Some readers complained that there was no war to speak of in the first book but there was a good reason for that: the authors had to build up to that & I hope said readers come back and give this sequel a chance.

    PROS:
    - Awesome cast of returning voice actors that did a fantastic job and really pulled you into this vastly divergent world.
    - Some truly memorable and highly-entertaining stories such as my favourite, "The Hippo" by
    Scott Sigler - I could listen to Harry & Big Baby all day! :)
    Another worthy mention is James A. Moore's continuing story of the Triad enforcer that is both hilarious and a welcome change of pace from some of the darker and grittier stories that encompass this book.
    - An authentic feel to the various responses by the world's governments to the vampire threat: I could see this happening in real life if something like this were ever to happen. And this continues to be a strong selling point for me: Jonathan Maberry and the ensemble of excellent authors have truly managed to craft a believable world grounded in as much science and realism as possible, making the events that unfold even more chilling.

    CONS:
    - I hated, absolutely hated the druergar story (sorry I forget the title and author) as I was appalled by the the horrific treatment that the main character's innocent wife and one daughter are subjected to. I understand that horrible things happen to good people everyday and I'm (mostly) fine with such depictions as long as they make sense within the narrative and don't feel tacked on and aren't overly graphic. However I feel that the level of savagery and barbarism depicted in said story utterly removes any semblance of enjoyment that could be derived from it, or at least that's how I felt - you're welcome to pick this audiobook up and judge for yourself. I just wanted to give all you potential listeners a fair warning :)

    "cheesy two conventional"

    nothing really stood out in this. the entire thing felt cheesy and two dimensional.
    I did not give it one start because the actors did a good job with what they had.
    I think they are trying to imitate the feeling of vampire diaries.

    "Needs More Editing!!"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Some of the stories were good. I especially enjoyed the story of Johnny Lae (sp?). One storyline was too grotesque for me, verging on torture porn.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Cut out or edit the story of Laughing Horse.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The readers were fine.


    Could you see V Wars: Blood and Fire being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Not really. Too much gore.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoy Maberry's writing. I especially liked the Pine Deep and Rot and Ruin series. I felt that this may have been released too quickly and would have benefited from more careful editing.

    "Interesting stories, excellent storytelling."

    The stories are fragmented by design, but interwoven well. The reading was great! I would, and have, recommended this series to friends with the same macabre tastes.

    Story
    "Holds Your Interest"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Because, near the end of the collection, the character of Harry Chamberland is performed by the beloved 1970s cartoon altruist Fat Albert. Albert was able to empathize with various outcasts because his own weight problem made him something of an outsider. Hence, he functioned as the conscience of his peer group.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I really enjoyed how the Chamberland story reminded me of the home-made musical instruments played by Fat Albert and his neighborhood friends. Such innovations proved that they could not be oppressed by their dire economic situation.


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    Harry Chamberland, obviously.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, because I model myself after Fat Albert, who always made the best of what he had. Therefore, I "wanted" nothing more after listening to this book.


    Any additional comments?

    Hey, hey, hey. Let's go watch the Brown Hornet, fellas.

    "Just OK"

    Some of the stories were interesting. A couple of them were better than the first book. However, some of the performances were annoying.
