Reviews of Alexander (Vampire Morsels) by Joleene Naylor

Ardy reviewed on June 25, 2012

Great story. Child Vampires are either very frightening, very tragic, or both. This one seemed tragic. Want to read more!

Great short story about her characters. Felt like this was a peak into a long history of these characters, and not something that's just made to fill the space.

Alexander is one of my favorite characters. He is so loveable and so tragic. Jo Naylor paints a wonderful picture of the child and his family and their lives.

I really enjoyed this one. Alexander and his family were among my favorite characters in Shades of Gray, so it was fun to get a deeper look into their lives. He longs for a normal childhood, but sadly, he'll never have one. I won't spoil it, but the ending was a powerful one. Definitely one that will stick with you!
