Product Description


Praise for the series: 

“An interesting departure from the many vampire books now available. It provides an entertaining and engrossing story for leisure reading.”—Kliatt

“A suspenseful story that deals with the emotional content of the situation rather than the obvious potential for overt horror.”—Science Fiction Chronicle

“Huff has retained her humor along with her horror, her characters have continued to develop, andher plots are quirky and original.”—VOYA

“Explores the borders of death and beyond with an intensity that is only partially lightened by touches of ironic humor. Written with the author’s usual flair for realistic fantasy.” —Library Journal

About the Author

Tanya Huff may have left Nova Scotia at three, and has lived most of her life since in Ontario, but she still considers herself a Maritimer. On the way to the idyllic rural existence she shares with her partner Fiona Patton, six cats, and a chihuahua, she acquired a degree in Radio and Television Arts from Ryerson Polytechnic—an education she was happy to finally use while writing her recent Smoke novels. Of her previous twenty-three books, the five—Blood Price, Blood Trail, Blood Lines, Blood Pact, Blood Debt—featuring Henry Fitzroy, bastard son of Henry VIII, romance writer, and vampire are among the most popular.

Series of short stories based on the Blood Books series June 5 2008
By SciFiChick - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Most of the stories take place around Huff's Blood Pact and Blood Debt. Also included is a proposed script for the Blood Ties tv show. Exciting, short mysteries laced with humor, made this a fun and easy read.

"This Town Ain't Big Enough" is a sequel to Blood Pact, where Vicki has to deal with another vampire encroaching in her territory. Suspenseful and intense, this was probably my favorite short story.

"What Manner of Man" takes place in Henry's past, where he tries to track down a spy. This was another fun one with plenty of intrigue, in the Regency era setting.

"The Cards Also Say" is another that follows Blood Pact. This time, Vicki hears an ominous message from a psychic.

"The Vengeful Spirit of Lake Nepeakea" follows Vicki and Mike to a remote lake that the locals say harbors a monster. This story had plenty of humor surrounding the mystery.

"Someone to Share the Night" stars Henry who begins to feel a little lonely, so he takes out a personal ad.

"Another Fine Nest" involves Vicki and Mike tracking down blood-sucking underground bugs. This was very suspenseful, with a high "ick factor."

"Scleratus" is a darker story, where Henry remembers his bloody past.

"Critical Analysis" involves Vicki and Henry trying to solve an impossible murder. These are always my favorite kind of murder mysteries.

"So This Is Christmas" throws Vicki into the role of Scrooge for this entertaining holiday tale.

In the "Stone Cold" screenplay, readers can compare this script to what eventually made it on the actual television episode.

With a wonderful arrangement of diverse stories, from humorous to more dramatic, this was definitely one of my favorite books of short stories. And Blood Bank is a wonderful addition to the library of any fan of the series.

It was nice to revisit some old friends... Nov. 30 2008
By V. Dalpe - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I have been a huge Blood Series fan for years, and this was a nice reminder of why I liked them so much. After reading the stories in this collection I dusted off the old books and re read the series. It was nice for a brief instant there to see Vicki Nelson resurrected from the growing mountain of urban fantasy heroines.

But, in my opinion, she still glows as one of the brightest as a strong, believably flawed, and smart lead character. So many of these Victory Nelson/ Anita Blake/ Sonja Blue knock offs lack the flavor and presence as main characters. Vicki is a believable character adapting to unbelievable situations, and I loved that.

I will say if you can swallow your pride and truck over to Lifetime Channel, the show was not half bad. A lot of the story lines are little more than standard paranormal cop dreck, but the actor's that bring these characters to the small screen do a darn good job.

**** Over the years, there have been several short stories following the further adventures of Vicki Nelson and Henry Fitzroy, and readers have had varying levels of success in tracking them down. Now, they have been collected in this anthology that will prove itself to be a great favor for those of us who had just about given up on locating the tales. Henry's past, how he and Vicki cope with life, or unlife, after they part, and how Mike copes with being in love with a vampire are the main focus. An added bonus is the shooting script to one episode of Blood Ties, the series. Blood Bank is a must read for Henry/Vicki fans. There's humor, angst, and passion on every page, making this a worthy continuation of the full length novels. ****

The continuing adventures of Henry and Vicki Sept. 18 2011
By Jeanne Tassotto - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is a collection of all the short stories featuring either Henry Fitzroy or Vicki Nelson that have appeared anywhere. Since these stories have been written for a variety of publication venues the tone of the stories varies wildly. Some like 'This Town Ain't Big Enough' and 'The Cards Also Say' are continuations of the events after BLOOD PACT and help set the stage for BLOOD DEBT. Others are stand alone stories - either straight mystery adventure stories featuring Vicki and Mike i.e. 'The Vengeful Spirit of Lake Nepeakea' or flashbacks to Henry's past - 'What Manner of Man' or even the comic 'Someone to Share the Night'. There is a little something for every taste or mood.

Although none of the stories are real gems or quite up to the level of some of the earlier novels in the series, they are, at least, a way to ease the pains of end of the series withdrawal.

I was disappointed when Tanya Huff ended the Victoria Nelson series. It was so nice to see another book, even if it was just short stories. I wish there had been more with Henry in them. I would have liked to see Henry and Vicki come a little closer to conquering that whole "vampires can't share the same territory" thing. It's a much better read for me when all three characters are playing off each other.
