Amazon calculates a product’s star ratings based on a machine learned model instead of a raw data average. The model takes into account factors including the age of a rating, whether the ratings are from verified purchasers, and factors that establish reviewer trustworthiness.
Okay, so I was warned that this would be bad, but I have a problem that I’m working on. I am Obsessive and Compulsive so there are certain things in my life that I must keep ordered. Before Goodreads I used to keep lists and so now Thank God for Goodreads. Freebooksy and Bookbub send me free books every day. Authors email asking me to join their ARC teams all the time and I wind up turning a lot of them down. (I’m sure I’m not unique. There are a lot of my GR buddies that get these opportunities because of our addiction.) So I saw this book for free and I got it. It’s terrible. I love vampires, but they’re not my thing. Zombies are. However, I’ve read some really good vampire stuff so if that’s what you like read: Stoker’s Dracula; King’s Salem’s Lot; McCammon’s They Thirst; Lumley’s The Necroscope series; Ajvide Lindqvist’s Let the Right One In; Matheson’s I Am Legend; even Anne Rice’s Lestat series. Just don’t read this. It’s amateurish. The editing is horrible. The stories don’t fit together. The last one shouldn’t even be included. I promise you that I’m not intentionally being snarky, and if it comes across that way, I apologize, but yuck!
This is a collection of tales some were really good and had great characters, others were a little slow and left you hanging. This is a great book for fast reads when you can't read a book but small novellas. Enjoy
