      Dead of Night (In Death)Four story of walking on the dark side. Eve and Roarke hunts a vampire or someone who think he is one. Good read.

    • Kara Jorges says:

      As with most anthologies, this one offers some good novellas sandwiched between others of lesser caliber. Naturally, the JD Robb story, “Eternity in Death,” is excellent, fast-paced, and devoid of any cloying story elements as recurring characters Eve Dallas, husband Roarke, partner Peabody, and the rest of her usual team go after a dangerous con man and killer who preys on foolish young socialites. This story had a very dark feel and would have set the stage nicely for something in a simila [...]

    • Amanda says:

      I, like a lot of people it seems, only picked up this book because of the Eternity in Death story. As a JD Robb "In Death" story goes, I really liked it - it was a bit different from the average In Death story. The vampire theme was fun and added supernatural elements without going past reality into true supernatual territory, which in my opinion doesn't belong in Eve Dallas' world (unlike Haunted in Death which took the supernatural too far). As an anthology on the whole, Dead of Night did not [...]

      Read 11/2/07 Publication Date : 2007 Dead of Night is an anthology of four novellas, of which the reason to read it is J.D. Robb's Eternity in Death. I readily admit that I'm an "In Death" junkie - any book that includes Roarke is an immediate buy for me. That aside, the last few In Death books have been vaguely disappointing. I'm rather cheered by this novella, it's snappy and the dialogue is brightly written, with Eve and Roarke *sounding* true to themselves. Despite being about a vampire kill [...]

    • Vanessa says:

      This is a book with 4 Novellas. I've already read the J.D. Robb stories but not some of the others. The one included in this book is Eternity in Death. Eve is investigating a murder in which it appears that the victim was done in by a vampire. The case does lead Eve and her team to some interesting places and people. Roarke's a little in to the woo-woo (well, you can't be too careful, can you?), and that makes for some interesting moments as well, especially since Eve can't believe him and Peabo [...]

    • Jennifer Wardrip says:

      I always buy these yearly anthologies simply for the new Eve Dallas/Roarke novella by J.D. Robb. She doesn't disappoint with ETERNITY IN DEATH, which centers around an evil psychopath who truly believes himself to be a vampire.Mary Blayney's story, AMY AND THE EARL'S AMAZING ADVENTURE, actually didn't make much sense to me, and I didn't finish it.Ruth Ryan Langan writes a really good Scottish time travel story with TIMELESS. Although I don't really like historicals, I enjoyed this short story.ON [...]

    • Valerie Robertson says:

      I only read the short story by JD Robb associated with the In Death series. It was a good short story, and like other "short stories" too short. Too quick to the conclusion, but normal for this format. I'm not a big vampire fan, so didn't really get into the story. But it was well written and a quick, short break into Eve's world.

    • Katie says:

      Only read Eternity in Death. I liked this one. The whole vampire vibe. Short and punchy. No wonder the killer was batshit, with all the chemicals he as taking, no ones brain would function properly. The stake!! Never gonna live that one down with Baxter. Snicker. Roarke's possessiveness. Yum.

    • Irene says:

      J.D. Robb story was the best. Only liked one of the others.

    • Maura says:

      Eternity in Death - J.D. Robb - 3/5 - A short and sweet and chilling little novella. A victim turns up exsanguinated and the talk turns to vampires. Especially when the victim is tied to an underground cult club for wannabe vampires - and the owner appears to be one as well. But Eve, being the logical and down to earth cop she is, just recognizes him as a monster, never buying into his vampire hype. Other characters in the series, as we know, are a bit more open-minded and while there isn't any [...]

      1st time finished ??? skipped #2 skimmed #3 and 4?2nd time 1/24/12 to 1/31/121. "Eternity in Death" by J.D. Robb read 1/24/12 to 1/31/12: Eve stops a grifter/wanna-be vampire/murderer, Vadim, by staking him with the wooden stake that Baxter gave her as a gag (she's lost her weapon when Vadim hit her). 2."Amy and the Earl's Amazing Adventure by Mary Blayney read 1/29/12: wish-granting coin; time travel, ghost: Framing story (contemporary time) from "Poppy's Coin" (BUMP IN THE NIGHT) is the main s [...]

    • Ladysatel says:

      4 stories by different writers make up this book.1. Eternity in Death by J.D. Robb has Eve Dallas and Peabody chasing after a "vampire" offering eternal life to the cities rich and bored. There is something about the proprietor of the underground club, but is he really a supernatural being?2. Amy and the Earl's Amazing Adventure by Mary Blaney a tourist is given a coin by a docent at an private London museum. While examining the coin at a local pub she is approached by a man who is very curious [...]

    • Dharia Scarab says:

      Haven't read the J.D. Robb story yet because I'm not that far in the series.The stories by Mary Blayney and Ruth Ryan Langan were good.Didn't care for the story by Mary Kay McComas in this book though.Since I don't normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here's the break down of how I rate my books1 star This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end. I will avoid this author like the plague in the future.2 stars This book was not very good, and I wo [...]

    • Stephanie Tuell says:

      i only got this book for the story by j.d. robb, but i read the restERNITY IN DEATHthis was kind of a switch from the normqal j.d. robb books. in this one, she has to battle a 'vampire'. eve drags peabody, roarke, and her other cop friends deep underground to capture a murdererY AND THE EARLS AMAZING ADVENTUREthis story wasn't so bad. amy finds herself wisks away with a handsome guy to find out some secrets about his family.TIMELESSi wasn't crazy about this story at all. lorel is sent to the hig [...]

    • Maria says:

      Four stories of which the first, Eternity in Death by JD Robb and the reason I bought the book, and the last On the Fringe by Mary Kay McComas, were the best. Eternity in Death was intriguing but bloody - yuck - as many of the In Death books are. Still, a vampire motif is something new and different. The last story dealt with a "what might have been" theme with a twist that I found intriguing, especially since it dealt with a marriage where the kids are mostly grown up and the adults have reache [...]

    • Visnja.Max says:

      (short story)While Peabody is open to the idea that vampires exist, Eve is her usual skeptic. Murder happened, rich girl got killed and only two punctures are seen on her body, while her blood is sucked out. There is a new club, held by a certain Dorian. On first look on him, Eve saw something familiar. She sees her father in him. The same sociopath. It is pretty obvious who killed that socialite, and later the bartender, but Eve has to find a way to prove it. She goes back to the club where she [...]

    • Roberta says:

      Antologia di racconti, di cui io ho letto i primi tre. "Eternity in death" è quello della Robb. Le dimensioni ridotte dei racconti della Roberts ultimamente mi stanno un po' strette; preferisco di gran lunga godermi la lunghezza di un suo libro "standard".quando J.D.Robb entra nei territori del sovrannaturale o almeno fa finta di farlo Il Bloodbath mi ha ricordato un po' il Circo dei Dannati di hamiltoniana memoria, ma alla fine qui tutto viene - più o meno - ricondotto ad una spiegazione logi [...]

    • The Listmaker says:

      In one word: Disappointing.I got this book because of the In Death short story by Nora Roberts writing as JD Robb; and even that was not Ms. Roberts' best work.From what I read of the rest of the stories they seemed to be written for and by tweens. It was if I was reading the results of an assignment in Romance Writing Lite. And perhaps most disappointing, it even seemed as if Nora was affected and wrote a sugary sweet story that, pardon the pun, had no bite.I was so disappointed in this book th [...]

    • Merin says:

      I was interested in this book because I like J. D. Robb. That must have been what they were counting on, because the other three stories were not really of a similar theme. I guess they were hoping that the vaguely supernatural aspects of the mystery would make the anthology work, but it just didn't for me. I did enjoy the story about the coin, but the other two just weren't my style. I found the story about the rug very hard to follow - I found myself rereading pages over and over again, and I [...]

    • McKenzy Martin says:

      I really liked this book a lot. My favorite story is Timeless. I've read it over and over and over. I love the relationship between Con and Lorel!I can't decide what my second and third favorite would be because it's a VERY close tie between On the Fringe and Amy and the Earls Amazing Adventure. Both are great stories. Very romantic.As for my least favorite, I've heard wonderful things about J.D. Robb (Nora Roberts), but I actually wasn't all that crazy about Eternity in Death. I mean, it was go [...]

    • Mandy Beyers says:

      I loved the JD Robb story - I am such an Eve and Roarke fan that even the short stories rock. In this one, the killer makes like a vampire (view spoiler)[ - leading to a fantastic line where Eve tells Roarke soemthing along the lines of "I told him to "Bite me" and he took me literally. As always, her instincts lead right to the killer and she fights some of her past on the way to solving the crime. Love these two! (hide spoiler)] I also enjoyed the other stories in the anthology - two time trav [...]

    • Ruth Violet says:

      i really loved the first 3 stories. those were really enjoyable. first one was eternity in death-J.D. robb. first story i read from her. it was awesome. the second was: amy and the earl's amazing adventure-mary blayney. awesome read. first novel i have read from her also. and third one was: timeless-ruth ryan langan. scottish highlander prince. so very yummy. i want one!!! awesome story. first story i have read from her too. but i will definitely look more up. from those writers. the last story: [...]

    • Nancy says:

      I am only rating the JD Robb novella. I actually liked this story as one of Robb's best. I began reading the other stories but couldn't get past the first couple of pages of each. The story by Mary Blayney was written so badly I almost didn't even try the others. I thought "Timeless" by Ruth Langan had some potential until the heroine's clothes were thought to be barbaric and no one noticesd the zippers and buttons, much less the modern shoes. By page 8 of "On the Fringe" I didn't like any of th [...]

    • Isis says:

      I was sick and out of reading material and I found this on my shelf, no doubt left by my mother after a visit. The cover suggests horror and mystery; what's within are entertaining but shallow time-travel romances, and as I am not really a romance fan (but I do love time travel) they didn't do much for me. Robb's story was the most technically proficient; the third story, about a woman who time-travels back to auld Scotland, the most enjoyable.

    • Leslie aka StoreyBook Reviews says:

      I actually only read the first two stories in this book. I borrowed it from the library for the JD Robb story but then started reading the 2nd one and it was pretty good, so I finished it. The other two stories didn't appeal to me, but that is ok!the JD Robb story was as expected, good but it seemed strange because it was shorter. Still a good read plus it gets me in the mindset for Strangers in Death which is released tomorrow 2/19.

    • Jenn says:

      Meh. I only read the first two stories, Eternity in Death and Amy and the Earl's Amazing Adventure. EiD was alright. There wasn't a lot to it, but it was filled with stupid people. A&tEAA was just awful. After finishing it, I decided not to read the rest 'cause I've not heard of any of the other authors and I really just don't care to read them.

    • Carolyn F. says:

      There are 4 stories in this anthology - Robb's story was terrible - she was having a 2060 female cop talking like a 1930's private detective. She even called her husband "ace". Then she had phrases like "Muder kills more than the victim." "As of now, he's on a no-hemoglobin diet." Yuck! That story was a 1. The other 3 stories were 3. Not great but good.

    • Anne Mikusinsi says:

      Usually with anthologies like this, the stories are hit or miss. I have to say, honestly, I enjoyed reading all of them. The JD Robb story, especially, makes me want to start reading the whole "In Death" series. I will do that, of course, when I finish the other 5 series I'm currently in the middle of:P

    • Joanne says:

      J. D. Robb (a.k.a Nora Roberts) write this FREAKIN' AWESOME (phrase borrowed from my 17-year-old granddaughter) series! There are OVER 30 BOOKS in the series including several short stories in anthologies. My local library owns most of them (more than 1/2 of which I donated so that others could enjoy this series). Looking for a summer challenge? Read this series. You won't regret it.
