“Theron's Boys” by Kiernan Kelly
offering of the opportunity to be forever young and
beautiful, vampire Theron seduced beautiful young boys into
the life of immortality. He failed to mention that once
converted they will be under his control and their lives
will be his to do with as he pleases.
“Theron’s Boys” is great story. It shows that it only takes
one person to take a stand and the rest will find the
strength to follow. My heart went out to Christian, David
and all the young men who believed the fantasy Theron fed
them, only to find the reality to be immortal hell.
“Inferno” by Matt Brooks
wasn’t a predator and could never be a killer. Left in
limbo between being mortal and being a vampire, Robert
offers Blaise the chance to complete his transformation.
“Inferno” is really sweet, there is something very
compassionate and loving about Blaise and Robert, even
though they have only just met. Robert offers Blaise a
choice between immortal life and death. Left in limbo by
another vampire who began his transformation and stopped,
Blaise appreciated Robert’s patients and understanding in
helping him make this life altering decision. “Inferno” is a
sweet story that could have been great if it was a little
“Chiaroscuro” by Erastes
owed a debt of gratitude to his Patron, Bettano, but not
just for his generosity to his family, that of which he
constantly reminds Michel of whenever possible, but also for
being the catalyst that acquaints him with the most
beautiful man he ever met.
“Chiaroscuro” is eerily good. The story is narrated by
Michel, a young man carrying the huge burden of his family’s
welfare, and being indebted to a low life like Bettano.
Being commissioned to paint the portrait of someone so
beautiful and passionate changed Michel’s life. He was in
love before he even knew his model’s name and many other
facts about him. I liked “Chiarascuro” very much, it’s a
very good read.
“Immortal Steps” by Kira Stone's
“You’re either born to be a vampire or you’re not.” Kyle
made the decision to leave Tain, to live a normal life for
as long as he could, before his vampire DNA started to take
over. Once Tain’s body began to show evidence of what he
was, or could be, Kyle returned to Tain’s life to take him
through the final steps of the change.
Immortal Steps is great. A really unique storyline and Kira
Stone did a nice job with it. I really like Kyle, I found
Tain to be a bit of a smartass, but he was entitled after
the bombshell that was dropped on him. Also his defiance
added to the fun of the story.
Night Moves is a really good anthology with
four fantastic stories written by four authors with great
imaginations. Each story was unique and entertaining.
Night Moves anthology is an enjoyable read.
