4.5 stars for this Tor.com online freebie. Love this story! Parenting is rough ... especially when youre a vampire trying to pass in human society.“Might as well kill me now.”“I won’t.”“I’m a monster.”“You’re just more literal than most.”Or the vampires wife, who was hunting him down to kill him when they met.“I miss.” Those two words sound naked. He struggles to finish the sentence. “I miss when we could be dangerous to one another.”“You think you’re the only one who does? You think the PTA meetings and the ask your mothers and the how’s your families at work, you think that stuff doesn’t get to me? Think I don’t wonder how I became this person?”Even if youre a vampire -- or a vampires wife, or his kid -- theres a lot to be said for being yourself.Full review to come.
