This second anthology edited by P.C. Cast has more of the vampire romance stories we love. Authors Rachel Caine, Claudia Gray and Nancy Holder make a second appearance in this anthology and are accompanied by Lili St. Crow, Heather Brewer, and Jeri Smith-Ready, all highly praised and sought after writers. A personal favorite in the collection is Nancy Holder’s “Letters to Romeo,” which reinvents the ultimate tragedy of Romeo and Juliet by giving Romeo eternal life as a vampire waiting for his fair Juliet to return to him. Also of note is Heather Brewer’s tale “The Other Side.” In Brewer’s frightening story, Tarrah and her boyfriend Corey have been kidnapped, shackled, and thrown into a dungeon to await their terrifying fates at the hands of an unknown creature; but who in this story is the real monster? In Eternal, Cast has put together another winning anthology with six beautifully dark tales of unrequited love and her own wonderfully written introduction. Fans of Cast, any of the other authors, or of the vampire subgenre as a whole will surely enjoy this anthology.
Highly recommended for public or school libraries in the young adult fiction collection. This is a young adult title that would work well for age ranges of 14-18, but adult readers who enjoy vampire romances would also enjoy this title.
