This was a ton of fun. My favorite stories were First Kill by V.E. Schwab, Mirrors, Windows and Selfies by Mark Oshiro, The Boys from Blood River by Rebecca Roanhorse, Bestiary by Laura Ruby, and In Kind by Kayla Whaley. So, you know, half of them. Seriously, they were all good and made me desperate for new vampires stories. It's time for a revival!
