A Taste of Revolution, by Tiffany Michelle Brown

Ravenous (Triskaidekaphilia, #2)


“A Taste of Revolution” is included in the Ravenous, Triskaidekaphila – Book Two compilation.


My review:

This was an exciting and liberating look at the world from the eyes of the vampires whose cravings for human blood are treasonous in nature and are forced to find alternate forms with which to feed themselves.  Witty and scandalous, this certainly appeased my “bloodlust”.

“The Eyes of a Stranger” is included in the Ravenous, Triskaidekaphila – Book Two compilation.


My review:

A hauntingly endearing romance between an artistic vampire and his muse.  The creativity involved in composing that spectacular piece of art is colorfully portrayed in this read.  Beauty emanates from the inside, indeed.

Sweeter Than Blood, by Dale Cameron Lowry

Ravenous (Triskaidekaphilia, #2)


“Sweeter Than Blood” is included in the Ravenous, Triskaidekaphila – Book Two compilation.


My review:

“Sweet” is exactly the word I would use to describe my overall feelings regarding this tale.  The main character was changed without consent in a moment of sexual weakness and is dealing with the aftermath the best he can.  The flashbacks as to how that action took place are brilliantly placed throughout the story and highlight the inner turmoil as the character tries to come to terms with that realization.  The vulnerability and self-acceptance is beautifully written and I would enjoy reading more about this vampire and his sire.

Palladian Excursions, by V. Hummingbird

Ravenous (Triskaidekaphilia, #2)


“Palladian Excursions” is included in the Ravenous, Triskaidekaphila – Book Two compilation.


My review:

This story appealed to me as a fan of erotica, vampires, and fantasy.  The awareness of blood being a “life force” and that vampires can enhance other’s life experiences by being allowed to drink from a human is not a new concept.  Albeit a common thought, the execution of this idea was nothing less than an erotically charged read that I will revisit.

In a Quiet Village, by Violet R. Jones

Ravenous (Triskaidekaphilia, #2)


“In a Quiet Village” is included in the Ravenous, Triskaidekaphila – Book Two compilation.


My review:

This story took the terror of a vampire stalking about the house in the middle of the night and defiling young maidens and made it romantic erotica.  What should be creepy and taboo is oddly romantic.  The realization that no more than a handful of words were exchanged between the vampire and his “victim” make this story even more polarizing.
