Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

By turns deliriously romantic and richly melancholic, Guran's second anthology (after Best New Paranormal Romance) reprints 15 stories originally published in 2006 that explore the phantasmagoria of fantastic romance. Guran's shift from "Paranormal Romance" to "Romantic Fantasy" means selections "do not necessarily deal with the establishment or continuance of a relationship," signaling increased efforts to appeal to fantasy readers. Standouts include three seaside treats: M. Rickert's breath-stealing ghost tale, "Journey into the Kingdom"; Sonya Taaffe's hypnotic "The Depth Oracle"; and Sandra McDonald's wistful story about a young mother's yearnings concerning "The Mountains of Key West." Also notable are Angela Boord's bittersweet woodland fairy dream, "Evergreen"; Vera Nazarian's bright delight, "The Story of Love"; and Delia Sherman's gorgeous Parisian ode to the addictive charms of "La Fée Verte." While these offerings from an impressive crew of fantasy heavyweights may not be jam-packed with happy-ever-afters, they explore the many worlds of fantastic romance with passion and panache.

    fifteen well written romantic fantasies

    This anthology consists of fifteen well written romantic fantasies published in various sources in 2006. The tales are fun to read as one¿s soulmate might be a soul stealer as opposites attract and love does not guarantee a fairy tale happy ever after though it does make the Guren world go round more often elliptical rather than circular. There are no clinkers as each of the chosen stories is a solid entry though the short format does not lend itself to fully developed paranormal elements. Those excellent few that do typically contain a vivid location make the fantasy seem genuine especially gripping are the haunting coastal 'Journey into the Kingdom' by M. Rickert and the forest of 'Evergreen' by Angela Boord. Sub-genre readers will appreciate this fine anthology whether the stars are witches, elves, fairies and various assortments of ilk from other realms as a virtual who¿s who (O¿Keefe, Friesner, Monette, etc.) contribute. As an aside the first volume is actually titled the BEST NEW PARANORMAL ROMANCE. --- Harriet Klausner
