The war is tearing our world apart. Instead of big armies with tanks in the field, the Vampire War is fought in the streets, neighbor against neighbor, family against family. Anyone can turn at any time. The blood hunger can suddenly appear in the middle of a kiss. The person who sleeps next to you every night could wake up in the dead of night...hungry. So hungry...

V-Wars: Night Terrors collects all-new stories from the reporters embedded with the beats (humans) and the bloods (vampires). Each tale explores the nature of terror and peels back another layer of our comfort. Each tale bares our throat to the bite.New York Times Bestseller Jonathan Maberry and his team of front-line storytellers bring you all-new tales of horror and heroism, of pain and delight, of deadly despair and soaring courage. The war between beats and bloods is blazing. Pick a side.

Read It Rate It Thoughts: This is the second set of V-Wars stories that I have listened too and I am fascinated by them. This one particularly delved into the different types of “V’s” and that appealed to the history lover in me (great cultural and ethnic tie-ins). The stories are well paced and lace together pretty seamlessly. I think fans of fringe science will particularly like it because there is a lot of little intricacies explored in the types of V’s. Also fans of stories like World War Z will love it because of the broad spectrum of little stories all connected. Overall this is quickly becoming a not miss for me.

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated by: full cast, Cassandra Campbell, Gabrielle de Cuir, Richard Gilliland, Jamye Grant, Stephen Hoye, Alex Hyde-White / Length: 15 hrs and 36 mins


This is a DO NOT MISS on audio type of performance. Each narrator nailed their parts and worked together really well. I love full-cast recordings because it feels more like an old radio show. This group worked well together and really brought the stories alive.
