Synopsis (Goodreads):
Jesse senses something off about the nightclub. She wants to leave, but her best friend, Tasha, is determined to have a night to remember. There's no way she's turning down an invite to the VIP section.

Against Jesse's better judgement, she follows Tasha up the ivory staircase to the mysterious room above. The whiskey and champagne are flowing, and pretty soon the blood will be too.
My Thoughts: Ooh. I like it when short stories pack a lot of punch. And for all its length, this one pulls a whole lot of character and terror into it.

Jesse allows herself to be drawn into something she knows is wrong because her best friend is determined to forget her woes and she wants to do it in style. For Jesse, something seems off about the club from the moment they enter. Yet... she goes along with her BFF and ends up in the middle of something she can't comprehend.

But this doesn't stop her from trying to fight her way out of the situation. The girl is fierce when she's fighting for her life. FIERCE. And even when she's defeated, she's not willing to give in. I respect that type of attitude.

Quick, dark, and dangerous with enough blood and bodies to make me happy.

    1. Maybe? I don't know. I went to a whiskey distillery in Ireland once and I haven't been able to drink it since. Not that I really drank it before but... what were talking about again?

    2. Whiskey and I are shaky ground due to a not-so-great St. Patrick's Day. That doesn't stop me from wanting, though.

    3. I wish I didn't understand EXACTLY what you're saying. Unfortunately, I do. Oh, Rum. You and I will never be bosom buddies again!
