Dark Thirst

Dark Thirst
by Allen, Angela C., editor

Dark Thirst contains six short stories (by The Urban Griot (aka Omar Tyree), Donna Hill, Monica Jackson, Linda Addison, Kevin S. Brockenbrough, and Angela C. Allen) featuring urban vampires in colorful settings such as Brooklyn and New Orleans. Not your typical vampire fare, these creatures of the night are susceptible to the same seven deadly sins that have plagued humankind for centuries: lust, gluttony, wrath, envy, avarice, pride and sloth are manifested within the pages of Dark Thirst.

My favorite story by far is “The Ultimate Diet”. Keeshia, an obese computer programmer, envies her svelte, sensual new neighbor who has many lovers and the ability to eat anything she wants without gaining a pound. What’s her secret, and will Keeshia risk everything to find out?
