V Wars - Review

Review of V Wars 

Goodreads Blurb
A sweeping, threaded narrative of the global phenomenon known as the Vampire Wars Mankind is silently infected by a millennia-old bacteria unknowingly exhumed by a scientific expedition in Antarctica. Now, in some rare cases, a person's so-called "junk DNA" becomes activated, and depending on their racial and ethnic heritage they begin to manifest one of the many diverse forms of the "others" that are the true basis for the legends of supernatural creatures. These aren't your usual vampires and werewolves - it goes much deeper than that. Conceived by Jonathan Maberry, V Wars features stories from various "frontlines" as reported by such contributors as Nancy Holder, Yvonne Navarro, James A. Moore, Gregory Frost, John Everson, Keith R.A. DeCandido, and Scott Nicholson (as well as Maberry himself, of course). The result is a compelling series of tales that create a unique chronicle of mankind's response to this sudden, hidden threat to humanity. 

My Review
I received this book from NetGalley and IDW Publishing for a honest review. This book is a collection of stories by different authors that have to do with the V wars. Each author adds their own spin on these vampires that are taking over the world. A virus escapes the ice and soon begins to turn people into vampires, but each person is different. It all depends on what kind of heritage you have as to what kind of vampire you will be. The end of human kind may be upon us in this fascinating book, but can the werewolves save us.

I really enjoyed each authors story. They all tie in so well with each other you have to believe they all sat down together to write this. It is a new way for vampires to emerge from books and one that is truly amazing. I never thought that vampires may not be just bloodsuckers or picky eaters. I love how each author gave their version of vampires but still kept it all flowing so neatly. If you love vampires pick this one up. It won't let you down.
