Eros & Thanatos:
An Anthology of Death & Desire
by Cassandra L. Thompson

Death, my dear, is only the beginning...Freud once theorized that human beings are subject to two drives: love (Eros) and death (Thanatos). While his psychoanalytic theory has long been expanded upon, no one can argue how fundamental love and death is to our existence. Within this collection are twelve stories that explore the fine line between these concepts. It also features a diverse group of authors whose often unheard voices tell stories of resilience, strength, and triumph through tragedy. Haunting as any Quill & Crow anthology, these stories seek to intrigue, inspire, and give a whole new meaning to "until death do us part."
Robin's Review: An anthology full of gothic and dark fictional tales on varied topics of love, death, darkness, desire, devotion, and mortality.

All stories were well written, imaginative and quite interesting. I really enjoyed the dark themes of these short stories and look forward to more of these tales in the future. What an awesome Valentine read.

It was my pleasure to receive a free copy of this book from Quill & Crow Publishing House but that does not in any way affect my opinions in this review of these amazing stories.
