    "Eternal Kiss"

    If you love the paranormal genre than you will love this book. This is a collection of short stories by several talented writers , including Melissa De La Cruz (Blue Bloods), Rachel Caine (Morganville Vampires), and Cassandra Clare (City of Bones).


    Each individual story takes a different unique view into the dark world of vampires. I'm usually not a compilation type girl. But the lure of reading Rachel Cane's short story made me want to buy it. By buying it for one story it exposed me to other author's literary style in the supernatural genre.

    I found myself going to the bookstore with a list of books I wouldn't normally purchase. Each individual story was like an appetizer that left me craving more.

    If your like me, constantly searching for new and better authors to read I highly recommend this book, just beware the title says "story's of blood and desire" but there was no desire...just blood.

    "Frustrating"

    Some of the stories were good. Others were just getting good and then just ended. I would have loved to hear the rest of the story.

    "A Nice Selection of Vampire Tales"

    I have to agree with another reviewer who complained that some of the stories seem unfinished and incomplete.

    I still enjoyed the listen and would purchase this anthology again.

    "A Great Pleasure"

    Contrary to some of the other reviews, I simply loved this collection!

    I have read (or listened to) most of the novels to which a lot of these stories relate, and I think that is what makes the main difference in enjoyment - for me, these weren't short stories that didn't go anywhere (as some others seem to think), but in some cases fillers (providing additional information) to already known stories and prequels or sequels in other cases.

    For those not familiar with the back-stories, let this be a teaser to guide you to the next books to add to your collection. If seen that way, this is a great collection.

    And even if you have no intention of following up on any of the stories, they are still sufficiently entertaining to make this audio book well worthwhile.

    "Something to sink your teeth into"

    In The Eternal Kiss, you will find a collection of 13 (not 12) short stories to sattisfy any vampire fiction fan's cravings. If you like your vampires mean, sweet, romantic or brewding, these tales will more than sattisfy the appitite.
