Meet the Author

MaryJanice Davidson has been credited with starting paranormal chick lit. She is the author of the Undead series and Me, Myself and Why? Her books have been listed on the New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists, and she lists her goals as “Working for world peace, figuring out how to make potstickers, and speaking at writer and reader conferences around the world.” She lives in Minnesota.

 

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Cheyenne McCray writes the Night Tracker novels and the Armed and Dangerous series, among others. She grew up on a ranch in southeastern Arizona. She has been writing ever since she can remember, back to her kindergarten days when she penned her first poem. She always knew one day she would write novels—she wanted to create worlds that readers would get lost in, just as she had always gotten lost in her favorite books. “Growing up I read, read, and read,” she says, “and grew up to write, write, write.” She has three sons and two dogs. A true Arizona native, she loves the desert and all of the sunshine and beautiful sunsets that go along with it.

 

Christine Warren is the bestselling author of The Others series, including Wolf at the Door, Big Bad Wolf, Born to Be Wild, Prince Charming Doesn’t Live Here, and Black Magic Woman. Born and raised in coastal New England, she now lives as a transplant in the Pacific Northwest. (She completely bypassed those states in the middle due to her phobia of being landlocked.) When not writing, she enjoys horseback riding, playing with her pets, identifying dogs from photos of their underbellies, and most of all reading things someone else had to agonize over.

 

Lori Handeland is the USA Today and New York Times bestselling author of the Nightcreature Novels, including Moon Cursed and Crave the Moon, as well as The Phoenix Chronicles and Shakespeare Undead. She is the recipient of many industry awards, including two RITA awards, a Romantic Times Award for Best Harlequin Superromance, and the Prism Award from Romance Writers of America. She lives in Wisconsin with her family and a yellow lab named Ellwood.

I simply got this book because I'm a fan of two of these authors. But overall I would give this book a 3.5. Davidson's story was okay. Wasn't really what I expected. The plot was kind of bland but the characters were unique. Ireland already having a wired name was an interesting person. She's a human that "adopted" roommates like the Ezra, the vampire, is spunky to say at the least. Owen, the werewolf, is a charming wolf that makes you smile at how dog-like he is. Lent, the Violent Fairy is tall and brash and literally a tree banger. Judith, the woman stuck inside a car... and lastly the Zombie named Zelda/Willow. Then Micah came along and made her life a bit more difficult for her liking. I would rate this as a 2.5. Handeland's had more of a plot. In a Devil's Fork Dana needs to fight against a killer that doesn't leave any evidence behind expect for some voodoo dolls. With the Help of the mysterious Julian she takes a step into the world of magic. I would like to rate this as a 3. McCray's was the best out of all of them, it was simple but the most attention grabbing out of the four. Her characters are charming and so was the situation she puts them in. Sydney the move than average witch needs to protect the human world from Druid with Conlan the playboy fairy warrior. Rating is a 4. Lastly, Warren's was also a simple story and also interesting. Miranda was not that hard to love with her stubborn and perky personality, along with Michael smooth and suave ways. With a bit of magic they meet, and together they try to prevent a certain someone to steal a spot in the head council of the Others. The rate I would give this is a also a 3. So overall all the stories were unique with unique plots. Each authors had their weak and strong points in their story. Enjoyable and absolutely not a waste of time, I would recommend this to anyone that wants a simple story with a dispose of romance.

I really enjoyed MaryJanice Davidson's story in this anthology, and would love to see the characters again in their own book. Although it contained the same "we just met, now let's have sex" as most of her other books, the characters were funny and unique enough that I still liked it.

Lori Handeland's story was quite freaky, Cheyenne McCray's was sexy, and Christine Warren's was really enjoyable.

Overall, a quick way to spend an hour or two!

I happen to be a big fan of all four authors. Love Christine Warren & MJD. Though I have been disappointed by MJD as of late, I found that this was her best in years!!! Original & laugh out loud funny. Lori Handleland & Cheyenne McCray were more formula. But that is typical for those two authors. Christine Warren has familiar characters. the story itself was original & enjoyable.

I really enjoyed this paranormal romance anthology. Cheyenne McCray and Lori Handeland's novellas both were peppered with a little urban fantasy which I appreciated. Cheyenne McCray "Breath of Magic" I checked this anthology out of the library for this novella and I wasn't disappointed. This particular novella seems to pick up where Wicked Magic leaves off. Sydney, a D'Anu witch and Conlan, a Tuatha D'Danann warrior along with the rest of the D'Anu coven and warriors that came over from Otherworld, track down Darkwolf and Junga. Unfortunately they get more than they bargained for when Balor, the god of death shows up as well. A battle for Balor's powerful eye ensues. This story was well thought out, smoothly done and felt complete. There was a ton of action, magic, sex and mystery. This was by far my favorite story out of this anthology. 5/5 Lori Handeland "Voodoo Moon" Special Agent Dana Duran has been sent to Devils Fork, Louisiana to investigate a unique serial killer. She meets Julian, a local voodoo shop owner, who opens her eyes to some of the dark secrets of voodoo. This story felt smooth and complete. There was a nice eerie and spooky feeling to it but at the same time there was a sense of predictability, however, the novella was interesting and enjoyable nonetheless. I am a sucker for stories that focus on voodoo and I commend Lori for going the non-traditional route and including a delightfully different supernatural story, unlike most fantasies today that pretty much stick to the European version of supernatural mythology. This story came in at a close second favorite. 5/5 MaryJanice Davidson "The Majicka" This story was much ado about nothing. This story was a potpourri of supernatural beings. It felt like the author just threw a whole bunch of different supernaturals creatures together, with no interesting focus and called it a story. I didn't enjoy this story and probably won't read anything from this author in the future. 1/5 Christine Warren "Any Witch Way She Can" This story was completely boring and couldn't keep my interest. The main character struck me as rather pathetic. This was my first time reading anything from this author and I probably won't read anything from her again in the future. 1/5 All-in-all I think this anthology was a success. The anthology was even split between two fantastic novellas and two flops.
