Ms. Collins has become one of my favorite authors and I highly recommend her work.” ~ Under the Covers

I wasn’t disappointed with this very short story except it was too damn short.  This story is about Michael Bishop and how he came to be.  I know…just as the title says.  Collins take on a world of vampires and this book explains a little about how they are created.  Similar to the typical Vampire world with a slight twist but what captured me was the very strong willed character, Michael Bishop.

At first, I could not place who Bishop was.  After a little digging, I realize that he is one of the sub characters in Ms. Collins’ Realm Walker series.  Though Bishop has a solid spot in this series, his story is not fully disclosed until now.  You really don’t know a character until you get know a little of his past.  Surprisingly, in this very short story, you get a good amount of who he is.  This book will hook you to wanting more of him and the man who helps him at the end *wink-wink*.  Knowing who Bishop is now, I’m hoping to get more of his story and possibly a happy ending for him.

The making of Michael Bishop is a quick read and great intro to Ms. Collins’ Realm Walker world.  From what I know, The Making of Micheal Bishop will be one of the first books in the Realm Walker Short Stories.  Obviously, a spin off of the series.  If you haven’t read Realm Walker and Death’s Daughter, I would recommend reading that now, to bide our time until the next Bishop book.  Ms. Collins has become one of my favorite authors and I highly recommend her work.

About Kathleen Collins

Kathleen Collins has been writing since Kindergarten. And while her ability has drastically improved, her stories are still about fantasy worlds and the people who play in them. When she’s not writing, she works as a clerk in the local prosecutor’s office. There, she sees all manner of things she doesn’t bother writing about because no one would believe any of it anyway. The rare instances that she actually finds some spare time, she spends it playing with her two boys. Three if you count her husband. She is currently hard at work on her next book.

I am young at heart and a die hard romantic living in California.I am happily married to a man who understands my love for reading, blogging and my book boyfriends. I have two beautiful girls who are also avid readers but forbidden to any of my books.I like running, CrossFit and eat healthy but not necessarily good at it.My motto is “I have the right to choose my calories” and often, my choice of poison is a bag of Flammin’ Hot Cheetos.

I coblog and review here at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens.I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone.For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.
