This is a world divided by blood--red or silver. The Reds are commoners, ruled by a Silver elite in possession of godlike superpowers. And to Mare Barrow, a 17-year-old Red girl from the poverty-stricken Stilts, it seems like nothing will ever change. That is until she finds herself working in the Silver Palace. Here, surrounded by the people she hates the most, Mare discovers that despite her red blood, she possesses a deadly power of her own.

When I read the synopsis I figured this would be something I'd like but it turned out I was really surprised at how good it was. I'm definitely off to see if there's a sequel!

In a world recovering only slowly from evil, a world where allomancers wield immense power through their ability to unleash the magic bound up in common metals, someone who can burn metals that no-one has burned before can tip the balance....

Unsure of how different characters would be in a story in the world of the mistborn I was apprehensive about this one. As it turns out I had no reason to be - some great new characters and a good story made this an enjoyable book.

The undead are more alive today than ever. Immortal? Indeed! Nothing has sunk its teeth into 21st century popular culture as pervasively as the vampire. The fangsters have the freedom to fly across all genres and all mediums - there''s even apps for vamps. Whether roaming into romance, haunting horror, sneaking into science fiction, capering into humor, meandering through mystery - no icon is more versatile than the vampire.

Really good collection of short stories ranging from 15-20 mins up to over an hour and set in various times and locations. Probably something for everyone who enjoys vampires or fiction.
