The Kindred Curse Anthology
The most interesting thing about The Kindred Curse Anthology is that it reads backwards. The first of five stories is set in the present, and the last story is set in 1886. The character that connects them is Xavier, a powerful vampire. The stories revolve around a family whose lineage includes blood that is especially craved by vampires. The stories chronicle their harrowing escapes (or not) from the night creatures who hunt them. I thought the book especially well written with an ear for language that made it flow.
