      Thank you Netgalley for a digital copy of this to read and review I do love me some vampire stories, both the romantic ones and the creepy, horror ones This is an anthology of the horror type variety.Overall, this was solid collection of horror stories I admit with the cover of the shirt less male on the front, I was expecting something a little along the lines of this Or at least this Some of it was very vampy, of course, but mainly it was stories about flesh eating monsters Still good for hor [...]

      Often anthologies can be a bit of a risk quality wise, rarely are all of the stories on par with each other This spine chilling collection is the exception Every story with the unfortunate exception of a couple, were amazing Seriously, I struggled to read this book at night because it was so awesomely scary This collection claims to make vampires scary again and it delivers I would recommend this to any fan of paranormal fiction Even if like me, you are not a fan of horror I still think you will [...]

      Up in Old Vermont by Scott SmithA very strong opener to the anthology At an aimless point in her life, a waitress takes up her regular customer s repeated offer to work for him as caretaker to his Alzheimers afflicted wife Soon, she finds herself ensconced in a remote house, in a small town, and of course she s neglected to inform anyone of her whereabouts How could anything go wrong The story has a bit of a slow buildup but I thought it was worth it Something Lost, Something Gained by Seanan Mc [...]

      Crap, 544 pages I blame this one on Sh3lly.ReviewI love vampires, but short stories not so much I wanted to read this anyway, because even though I love romanticized vampires but not whiney emo vampires , I occasionally read about the old school ones After reading this collection, I can definitely say I prefer them human, or at least humanoid.There were some standout stories here, some duds My favorite of the bunch was What Kept You So Long by the author of Let the Right One In which, incidental [...]

      You know an anthology is going to be special when 1 the stories are all new and written for said anthology 2 the editor has stated his intention to ensure that all the tales will feature vampires that are evil, nasty, ravenous and do not sparkle I may have added that last bit , and 3 that editor is excellent writer in his own right, Christoper Golden.With those lofty expectations in mind, I m relieved to report Seize The Night most definitely does not disappoint.With 21 tales comprising its mamm [...]

      They re not handsome pretty or friendly and they do not exercise self control They ARE ugly, vicious, gritty and evil Vampires just the way I like em I m a bit of a purist when it comes to my vampires I don t want Edward and daywalkers I want creatures of the night and fog Stoker s Dracula, Lon Chaney Jr s bat, Christopher Lee s chill, Nosferatu and blood dripping off fangs Seize the Night delivers on all counts.Christopher Golden has edited this anthology written by some of the best horror writ [...]

      Tin Men and Snowblind author Christopher Golden puts on his editor s cap here to assemble twenty one authors to help the mythic horror figure of the vampire reclaim the horror filled night.Seize the Night New Tales of Vampiric Terror is a highly successful anthology, one that puts vampires back into the shadowy, hidden corners where they belong and makes them creepy, chilling, at times downright frightening, and even occasionally sympathetic There s nary a sparkly, star crossed love to be found [...]

      They came for us, as they always did, when the sun shone high in the safe daytime sky They pulled us from our coffins, from our beds, from our corners and alleys and pits, and they hurt us oh, how they hurt us Driving stakes through our chests as their legends told them they should, and then cutting off our heads from Paper Cuts by Gary A BraunbeckA great vampire anthology A collection of short stories written by Charlaine Harris of the show True Blood and other great horror authors The line up [...]

      I wanted to love this, I really did And I respect the hell out of the editor s intention to print non sparkling bloodlust tales bravo BUT, the big mainstream names on this docket don t serve the cause There is simply too much mediocrity here However, two tales hide within this book like black fangs In a Cavern, In a Canyon by Laird Barron is Barron at his best isolated locales, strong characters, and an amazing mise en abyme that will have you throwing an extra log on the fire 5 STARS Shadow and [...]

      Because eternal life means eternal, whether you live inside a puppet of meat or the materials used to produce the pages of a book Eternal life means eternal.I could tell you so many things in this review to attempt to convince you to read this collection.For starters, I could remind everyone that for what feels like months, I ve searched for a decent short story collection I ve stumbled across some great short stories, and some decent ish collections of 3 stars stories But the majority have been [...]

    16. Craig on said:

      This is one of the best original anthologies I ve read in years Usually there are one or two really good stories, a handful that are okay that fill out the table of contents, and a few really bad ones that you have the feeling that the editor commissioned and then had to print because the budget had already been shot on them In Seize the Night the premise is to re create horrific, non sparkly, non cutesy vampires, the way they made em back in the good old days I thought there were several terrif [...]

      I fell in love with vampires the summer of 1965 when I bought a used copy of Bram Stoker s Dracula I was eighteen and I had to read it outside in full sunlight I have never thought of vampires as romantic characters I am well aware of what monsters look like, even the pretty ones But they intrigue me in a way that no other supernatural creature does I wonder how horrible it would be to have to see everyone that you love grow old and die while you remained youthful and alive by an act of violence [...]

    18. Carrie on said:

      Seize the Night is a collection of new short stories all featuring vampires These are not the glittery sexy type of vampires but a return to the chill down your spine scary vampires A challenge was given to the authors to put the horror back into vampire fiction which I think they lived up to wonderfully Out of the 20 stories in the collection of course there are some I liked than others but I d say I d probably rate them all between 3 5 stars so I went with 4 stars overall I d love to do a des [...]

      If you like vampire stories than you may want to check out this anthology However be warned as these vampires are not Edward they don t sparkle and they are killers Lots of blood will be spilled This is what I enjoyed about this anthology It was dark and the stories gritty Although, it seemed that I liked a little less stories than I would have liked Therefore, this is the reason for my rating on this collection of stories Yet, I have to comment and say that I have read many vampire stories and [...]

      Overall ImpressionsOverall, a very strong collection Very, very long, but with only a couple of stories that I didn t like Up in Old Vermont , Scott Smith 4 starsSuitably creepy at the end, but a very slow burn Something Lost, Something Gained , Seanan McGuire 4 starsLovely imagery, an unusual vampire , and a tinge of horror at the end On the Dark Side of Sunlight Basin , Michael Koryta 3.5 starsThe second part was great, though I didn t think the first part added much to it, and they felt too d [...]

      Actual rating 3.5 starsMy initial thought upon opening my eARC was holy shit, this book is huge And it is A whopping 544 pages of short stories about some of the strangest vampires I ve ever read and by strange I only mean in only a positive way These aren t the vampires that exist to steal your heart for the sake of romance and hot sex They actually want to devour you Ironically, the cover features a most definitely seductive man covered in blood, but that s okay Of course, I love romanticized [...]

      Vampires have had a tough time of it lately Burnout, I mean They were the HOT topic for quite some time and then the reading public seemed to lose their taste for them It happens A glut of books all on one subject generally does mean readers are going to sour to it eventually.But even if you re in this boat, the new Seize the Night anthology is so worth your time The premise of the anthology is simply to make vampires scary once again The authors a FANTASTIC lineup take their bloodsuckers from m [...]

      I was given an electronic copy by Gallery, Threshold, Pocket Books and NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.Seize the Night is advertised as a collection of vampire fiction, but many of the short stories written by this varied group of horror and paranormal writers were either not about vampires or not scary For instance, with Up In Old Vermont, the author spent so much time setting the scene that I lost interest As a regular short story, it might have been successful, but it was not what [...]

      There are so many different styles of vampires and writing in this anthology, I m sure most people can find a favorite Hopefully you will discover a new to you author to try out For me, those that were my favorite authors, were not my favorite stories The authors I had never tried before ended up being my favorite Anthologies are the way to go when looking for something new to read.The vampires in these stories didn t all seem old school to me as the book description states They were not all doo [...]

      I ve never read horror before Being easily nightmare addled, I never thought it was a good idea embarrassingly, there was this one time I watched the MTV show TEEN WOLF, just for a few minutes, and had a nightmare about werewolves I didn t even watch a scary scene Then I tried one of the tales in SEIZE THE NIGHT, a collection of vampire short stories The bloodshed wasn t overly graphic at least in my imagination and the writing is absolutely top notch There are stories that will give you the cre [...]

    29. Ann on said:

      What a wonderful anthology full of vampires, the bizarre and the macabre It s unusual to read every single story when you get an anthology but I savored everyone of these 20 short stories by a wide variety of authors I only recognized 3 or 4 of them so it was a great way for me to find new books to look for All the tales were sharply written and held my interest Some new looks for the most ardent vampire fan.

    30. Hope Sloper on said:

      There were some interesting pieces of work in this anthology All of these short stories offer a unique, and often surprising, take on vampires I loved that, because frankly, I m sick of vampires being romanticized Read full review on wordgurgle 2015 1
