Inhaltsangabe zu "A World of Vampires: Volume 1"

Vampires around the world are coming forth to remind humans they are not romantic fantasies to be sought, nor are they souls that can be redeemed. These are the stories they must tell. This is the collection of the first four novellas of A World of Vampires Series: Hooh-Strah-Dooh, Baobhan Sith, Strigoi, and Jiangshi. Hooh-Strah-Dooh: Anne Fitzgerald gives the tale of her involvement with the Irish gangs in the 1930s and how her life is full of love, loss, and abuse as she is forced to turn into the Wyandot's vampire, the hooh-strah-dooh. Baobhan Sith: Captain Henry Williams had everything he wanted back home in England, the woman of his dreams waiting for him, all he had to do was make it home after the war. But as he travels through the Highlands, he finds that fate has another plan for him. Strigoi: Amalia loved living as a traveler through the country of Romania, listening to the music of the night, until she found out the evil that was behind the music. Now she must decide to save her own skin, or bring forth the most evil strigoi ever to roam the world. Jiangshi: Hui Zhang was given a chance to follow his dreams in San Francisco and he took it, but was the money worth the price he paid? Especially when the evil he had done haunts him and his family?

    The last story is OK

    This collection contains four stories, each devoted to a special kind of vampire: Hooh-Strah-Dooh, Baobhan Sith, Strigoi and Jiangshi. The concept sounded promising and diversified, especially when depicting the differences and origins of each type of vampire. However, that was exactly what I was missing here. The stories were exchangeable and mostly uninspired - nothing I had not read somewhere else before.

    The first story was a boring and uninventive mixture of vampire romance - 1 star. The second story was just plain boring - 1 star. The third story took place in Romania with an evil vampire living in a castle (of course) and an ancient spell adding just enough mystery to pique my curiosity for the first time since I opened the book - 2 stars. The one story that made this collection almost worthwhile was the last one titled 'Jiangshi', which not only explained the history of this special kind of vampire in sufficient detail, but also delivered a very original and unusual tale about guild, remorse and revenge - 3 stars.

    Conclusion: if you are looking for something different in the vampire genre, go searching elsewhere or read only the last story. If you are not too picky and in desperate need of your next vampire fix, this may keep you going for a little while longer.
