Review: V Wars

V Wars
V Wars by Jonathan Maberry

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

2.5 stars. This looked like it might resemble World War Z with multiple authors and vampires.

It was more like World War Zzzzzzzzzz.

The "war" was a cold one and the overarching story seemed to deal more with social consciousness than with staking bloodsuckers. Oh wait. Just saying that makes me racist against vampires. Should I not use the "V" word? I'd hate to be banned from a cable tv network 30 years from now because they found out I said "vampire".

That said, I did enjoy some of the stories. Mostly I was intrigued with the Maberry sections and those by Nancy Holder. The rest pretty much reminded me that I hate vampires. Well, at least none of them sparkled.

It wasn't a horrible read, and the audio format really worked well for this work. Still, I would have liked to have seen more bullets fly and less political agenda.
