PJV's QUICKIE POV: Vampires fans, this is a must read. Not quite what I would call an anthology, this is more like tid bits, but enough to tempt your pallet. Evolve is stuffed full of shorts that all have one thing in common, good writing about the fabulously fanged. This is great book to keep on your nightstand to grab, read a story...and then tuck in.  Quick and to the point. Sometimes I would wish they were I'll probably go out and grab more books by that particular author. I was also introduced to a lot of authors I haven't been exposed to before and that was tremendous, because expanding my literary repertoire is always fun, especially since I have been so genre narrowed lately. Who me?
