V-Wars Jonathan Maberry, Nancy Holder, Yvonne Navarro, Gregory Frost, John Everson, Keith R.A. DeCandido, Scott Nicholson & Dacre Stoker Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
Every culture has its own folklore of deadly creatures of the night. But what if these tales are actually based on fact? Now, the nightmare creatures are returning—and they are hungry.
V-WARS chronicles the first Vampire War, from the savage murders committed by “patient zero” of the V-Virus plague, to full-out battles with vampire terrorist cells.
New York Times best-seller and multiple Bram Stoker Award-winning author Jonathan Maberry enlists fellow masters of horror to report from the V-WARS frontlines in this epic, innovative, and most of all, thrilling novel of vampire vs. human conflict.

User reviews about this book
An unusual mix
It's difficult to write a review when dealing with a compilation of authors contributing to the content that is to be reviewed.
Overall, V-Wars is entertaining and through various voices, takes approaches differing from mainstream vampire lore. Also, there are definitely some fresh ideas that are noteworthy.
The various voices were, at times, confusing to the narrative. There were many unanswered questions and the editing in some instances was lacking to a point of distraction.
While I didn't find myself on the edge of my seat, I also don't regret the time spent reading V-Wars and some of it was quite pleasant. I enjoyed the social and political commentary immensely.
Ten bucks well spent.
