I am not a big fan of short stories. For some reason I like a full length book to quench my thirst for book reading. With this book though, it didn’t feel like I was reading short stories! They were all the right length with captivating stories that kept you reading from page one to last page. Each author did a wonderful job creating a masterpiece of short story. They were all so good, I can’t even decide on my favorite of the three. Ms. Shayne and Ms. Harris are both well known authors to me. Ms. Hambly was an author I haven’t really heard of until this book. Now I know I will be adding her to my list of favorites. All three have proven that short stories can be just as good as a full length novel, when done right. They did it perfectly. I had rented this book from the library, usually because newer books are hard to find in my town, but I now know that this one is added to my “to buy” pile!
If you are into vampires, ghosts, and just plain paranormal be sure to give this book a try the next time you are at your library/local bookstore/online book store. You won’t be disappointed.
My Grade for this book: A+
