Now, in this collection, you can venture down the town’s strange streets, revisit all the tales you’ve come to love, and experience six new stories featuring your favorite Morganville residents—both human and vampire…” (Goodreads)
Even though this technically isn’t a part of the actual series, I am still labeling it #16 because it does give us more depth to the characters that have introduced throughout the series.
I will say that I didn’t like every short story and honestly, it’s just hard to for me to get into a collection of short stories. Some characters, like Myrnin, I did enjoy hearing more about and we also got a glimpse into his past and who he was before coming to Morganville. He has always been one of my favorite characters. There are other characters, like Jesse aka Lady Gray, who wasn’t introduced until the last two books but we did get to see a softer side to her in a couple short stories.
Overall, it was good but I know that most of it won’t stick with me. It has nothing to do with the book itself. I always enjoy this author’s writing.
