Product Description

From the Inside Flap

What could be scarier than the first day of school? Take a crash course in the paranormal from editors Charlaine Harris and Toni L.P. Kelner in An Apple for the Creature, featuring thirteen all-new tales out of school! Your schooldays are supposed to be the happiest days of your life - until you start thinking of your worst school nightmares: not knowing which is your classroom door, taking that maths test you never studied for, finding yourself naked in Assembly! But those fears will pale in comparison to these thirteen original stories that take academic anxiety to whole new realms. In #1 Sunday Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris' story, 'Playing Possum', Sookie Stackhouse thinks she has enough birthday cupcakes for her nephew's entire kindergarten class - but she forgot to cater for the deranged gunman who shows up unexpectedly. Julie learns an all-new definition of 'exceptional' when her guardian Kate Daniels sends her undercover in a school for gifted children in 'Magic Tests' by New York Times bestselling author Ilona Andrews. Like fangs with your forensics? Check out bestselling author Nancy Holder's 'VSI', in which FBI agent Claire is tested as never before in a school for Vampire Scene Investigation. And in New York Times bestselling author Thomas Sniegoski's 'The Bad Hour' Remy Chandler and his dog Marlowe find evil unleashed - in an obedience school. You'll need more than an apple to stave off the creatures in these thirteen original spooky scholastic stories!

1.0 out of 5 stars Unfortunately not worth the money 22 Feb 2013
By Voracious for Books VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was one I was really looking forward too because of Ilona Andrews and that story was so-so. The Charlaine Harris story was practically the only other story worth reading, this is a real shame as this is quite a pricey anthology too.

3.0 out of 5 stars Some good stories, some very poor 11 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Like other reviewers I bought this anthology for the Ilona Andrews story which I enjoyed. Other stand out stories were Sympathy for the Bones and Iphigenia in Aulis, both beautifully written. The other stories ranged along a scale from 'enjoyable' (Golden Delicious for example) to 'how did this ever get published?' (Callie meet Happy). I'm glad I didn't pay full price for this book.

I enjoy having short stories on hand because they help pass an hour. These stories are all a good read without exception! More of the same please!

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved this 17 April 2014
By StumpyB
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm a big fan of Charlaine Harris and Ilona Andreas which is why I bought this book. I wasn't disappointed - it was great! More importantly, I enjoyed all the stories (which isn't always the case when you buy a collection).

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice collection. 18 Dec 2013

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Was a bit nervous in buying this, worried it was going to be something more suited to teenagers but was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't. Nothing to in-depth, bubbled along nicely.
