Goodreads

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. For readers who enjoyed; World War Z

First Thought when Finished: V-Wars by Jonathan Maberry was an interesting mix of things. I enjoyed it far more than I expected too.

Read It, File It Thoughts: This is one of those books that I should probably break down into individual stories but I’m feeling lazy. This was however a fascinatingly different take on Vampires. I liked how all the authors played off each other and how well the stories blended. This was one of those times I was glad I didn’t have much of a clue going in because I am usually not a fan of these type of interwoven stories. This one worked though!

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated By Cassandra Campbell, Gabrielle de Cuir, Roxanne Hernadez, Arte Johnson, Stefan Rudnicki, Wil Wheaton / Length: 18 hrs and 33 mins


There was not a weak link in this bunch! I enjoyed the narration a LOT! The pacing, timing, narrator blending, and emotion was spot-on. I can’t imagine “reading” this book any other way.

Final Thoughts: This was overall a very enjoyable tale(s)!

    Thanks for the review. I’m delighted that you enjoyed it. V-WARS was volume one of the series. The second book, V-WARS: BLOOD AND FIRE debuts at the end of this month.

    I’m currently writing a monthly V-Wars comic (all new stories, no adaptations).

    And we’re in development for a TV series that will be written by Tim Schlattmann, who was the head writer for DEXTER.
