Reviewer: Harriet Klausner
This entertaining thirteen-story collection focuses on classic monster types like werewolves trying to do the right thing in terms of humanity. The anthology is divided into four subjects (“Werewolves and Witches”, “The Dead”, “The Undead”, and “The Demonic”) with three sections containing three stories and “The Undead” with four. The tales overall are well written and are clearly targeted towards modern monsterolists. The authors are a virtual who’s who, whom for the most part seem to have a good time providing a contribution. No story is weak, but a bite from “The Undead” section is truly worth the time. THE REPENTANT is a fine short story anthology that the monster generalist fan will appreciate.
