Blood and Lipstick

2.8  ·  Rating Details ·  10 Ratings  ·  3 Reviews
Since Carmilla in 1872 (25 years before Stoker's Dracula!) lesbian vampires have been a literary staple. The twining of female sexual desire with danger and deviance has been a common theme for a century or more. We're continuing that tradition with this anthology featuring those other ladies of the night. Sensuous but deadly, like velvet draped over razor wire, these lite ...more

The first tale is 27 Days by Encarnita Round which follows Sarah through some troubles with her wife when a new love interest enters the picture. 27 Days is written in first person, which is a hard perspective to pull off, and unfortunately I think that very reason is part of the story’s downfall.

Relentlessly terrible. Insta-love galore, vampire cliché heaped upon lesbian cliché ad nauseum, off-putting stalkers and co-dependent "ILU4EVA"-spouting vampire groupies everywhere, consistent lack of good characterisation or dialogue, all these women are described like barbie dolls, and the sex ranged from laughably awkward to the kind that makes you flinch, but not in a good way (word to the wise: "crotch palming" is not sexy. Tugging at nipples with your teeth like a terrier with a bone is ...more
