Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Robb (aka Nora Roberts) is indeed the headliner, but this all-new four-novella anthology definitely doesn't suffer from "standout single" syndrome-this one's all killer, no filler. In Robb's opener, a courageous female cop with a troubled past clashes with a bloodthirsty, unnaturally powerful mystery man who promises his enthralled victims immortality: charismatic con artist, or much worse? Blayney follows with the story of an enigmatic old coin that transports an American tourist and an oddly aristocratic bartender into a Regency-era adventure. In Langan's, another unsuspecting American time-traveler stumbles into romance with a 15th-century Scottish warlord who believes she's his kidnapped wife. And in McComas's, a bored housewife takes a magic carpet ride to an alternate universe do-over of her marriage. Though they don't always keep a straight face, occasionally tipping from fantasy into farce-for instance, a canny medieval Scottish ruler blithely accepting a 21st-century designer pant suit as regulation female barbarian dress-such lapses are minor; the biggest fault readers will find is that these intriguing characters are taken away so quickly (especially in Blayney's frustratingly rushed resolution). (Nov.)

    Jennifer Wardrip - Personal Read

    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.<BR/><BR/>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.<BR/><BR/>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.<BR/><BR/>ON THE FRINGE by Mary Kay McComas is another time travel, about a wife who wonders what life would have been like if she'd made different choices and decisions.<BR/><BR/>DEAD OF NIGHT is worth the read simply for J.D. Robb's story, but TIMELESS is also a pretty good read.

    Chalk Up Another One.

    Outstanding plot. Eve and Roarke, with their different views of the occult, made this one very humorous. I love the relationships between all the characters in the J.D. Robb books. I adore Summerset. Please don't tell the Lieutenant.....

    Great anthology

    'Eternity in Death' by J.D. Robb. In the middle of the twenty-first century, NYPD Lieutenant Eve Dallas struggles with a murder that implies the culprit is a vampire. While she scoffs tat that theory, her husband Roarke and Peabody believe a bloodsucker did the crime.---------- 'Amy and the Earl's Amazing Adventure' by Mary Blayney. They will find the answer to their enigma first hand when Amy Stevens and Simon West wonder how a coin minted in 1808 appears in an 1805 painting.------------- 'Timeless' by Ruth Ryan Langan. Modern day urbanite Laurel Douglas explores an ancient Scottish castle when somehow she is transported into the past everyone including laird Conal MacLennan assumes Laurel is his missing wife.----------- 'On the Fringe¿ by Mary Kay McComas. Bonnie knows her marriage is collapsing, but a magical carpet takes her to the world of what could have been where the grass no longer seems as green to the lass.------------- Although the Eve Dallas futuristic vampiric police procedural seems out of place with three time travel romances, DEAD OF NIGHT is an entertaining paranormal anthology containing four well written novellas. Readers will enjoy this collection as good as the previous compilation by this Jovian quartet (see BUMP INTO THE NIGHT).------------- Harriet Klausner

    I loved this book. The J D Robb Story is a good mystery with an end that I didn't really expect. The other three stories were interesting, exciting time travel stories. Didn't really fit with JD Robb's, but were good none the less. The final story really gave reason to the title of the book.
