Prisoners of the night is compiled of many authors, included in the book are some very unique stories as well as some very inventive poems. Rather then tell a lot about all the stories and poems I will tell just a bit about the stories. The poems you must buy and read for yourself as the meaning of poems can sometimes be subjective. There are stories of all varieties and places in history. These stories are unique to themselves. One of the contributing authors is Della Van Hise author of Ragged Angels. ORPHANS OF THE MOON by Cathryn Pisarki: This is a very short but interesting story of two vampires seeking the other in order to feed. I found it very entertaining and original. THE BLOODING CAGE by Rhonda Eikamp: The story starts out with a diary excerpt from a man studying Gargoyle IV vampires. This is a professor searching out vampires to prove their existence only with a twist. Will he capture the vampire and display the last of their kind? Or will he be the one displayed as one of the last existing of his kind? This all happens in the future and is a case of the hunter becoming the prey. THE WOUNDING by Linda Malm: Guiseppe and Petrus are vampires that like to bring their food home once in awhile. While Petrus is away on business Gui has some food they caught looked in a closet. Only this time Gui finds out she is blind and ends up caring for her. The whole time Petrus is away Gui and the girl form a growing relationship. Only things don't always turn out for the best. This short story could become heart wrenching if you really got into it. SAMARITAN by Tom Piccirilli: A undercover police officer gets found out by a mob boss, but when he is shot he finds help from a very unusual source. LOVE SUCKS by Adam Meyer: This story is a humorous and entertaining look at the problems three werewolves and a vampire have when their car breaks down in small out of the way town. HADES AND PERSEPHONE by Holly Riggenbach: A unique retelling of the story between Persephone and Hades. AUTUMN FOUNDLING by Wendy Rathbone: This is a future world after all the wars where boys and girls are separated from their parents and each other from very young, and told to control their most inner impulses, mainly the sexual ones. The world's nature is just beginning to rebuild itself. A young girl stumbles across a vampire and learns some of the most forbidden passions. TATIANA by B. Kim Meyer: A woman is kept from the man she is supposed to meet. Her family thinks she is just delusional due to illness. She pines for her midnight lover until she is old. Still she does not give up waiting. VESSEL FOR THE HOLY by Charles A. Gramlich: This is a very different look at Judas and Jesus, and what they actually were. This story will definitely make you think. The story involves a nun, a vampire named Kainja, his real identity and the identity of the child that the nun bore. It will give a whole new meaning to the words Jesus said at the last supper. This is definitely one of my favorite stories. MARK OF A DREAMER by Tippi N. Blevins: A vampire artist and tattooist becomes linked to a deaf and mute human woman tattooist through dreams. Through their connection they are both able to help one another. THE STARRY NIGHT by Charlee Jacob: A mental patient comes face to face with a female vampire. This is no normal mental patient but Vincent Van Gogh himself. She gives him some insight into things to come. HUSKS by Wendy Rathbone: This is a very short story. Basically it is about the love a male vampire for the weaker males that he tries to turn but they never live long. THE MORNING AFTER by Della Van Hise: This story is a shorter partial version of her book Ragged Angels. AMBROSIA by Natasha Solten: This is the last story of the book. It is a very erotic and somewhat graphic telling of a male vampire meeting a male of another species. This male of another species lures the vampire to his house and they have sex. In the end the male reveals who he really is and teaches the vampire a sense of acceptance like he has never felt before.
