I was browsing through my local library when I saw the name 'Stephenie Meyer' on a book spine, obvs this caught my eye because it's a book I've never read and I loved reading the twilight saga and the host, I'm just addicted to her style.
So here's a brief review of this book I found on the internet:
Prom Nights from Hell is a thoroughly entertaining collection of stories from five of the top teen writers in the business. The fresh and fully realized worlds will engage the entire spectrum of readers from tween to adult. While not all of the stories are self contained as some appear to be introductions to future series, there is enough to satisfy. What makes the anthology really shine is the variety of riffs on the same theme: prom night gone bad. Every author tells a unique and different tale from various points of view. Even the guys aren’t left out. Overall, this is one of the best anthologies I’v read of late and would rate the book a B+.
I really loved it, my favourite stories were 'The exterminator's daughter' and 'Hell on earth'. There's of course the guys that you seem to fall in love with in both of these, which make the stories better, Gabe and Adam (:
Here's what 'Hell on earth' the one by Stephenie Meyer, is about.
Hell on Earth is a great take on the angel/demon thema swirling around the paranormal romance world. The protagonist is Gabe, a high school student who feels compelled to help people. He can sense when someone needs his help and he really enjoys doing it despite getting suspended for decking a predatory teacher or getting teased for setting up so many couples. But Gabe has a knack of making people happy and when they are happy, he is happy. He is such a decent guy that when his date to the prom, Celeste, finds someone else’s arms (many other elses) more comfortable, he’s worried about whether he needs to take her home. He is also left wondering why prom night is turning into such a sad debacle with couples breaking up left and right.
Sheba is the cause. She’s a demon and her job is to make people unhappy. Sheba does a great job of it. She uses Celeste to move from boy to boy, tempting them into dancing with her and kissing her in front of their dates. She uses Cooper, a rich young kid, as the ultimate instrument of her maelstrom. heba’s plans are interrupted by Gabe who senses that she needs him in a way that no one else does.
This is where I got the reviews from, there's reviews on there from all the short stories.
Please tell me if you've read it and what you think about it.
