4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Anthology 25 Oct 2006
By Book Addict TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Nine authors have got together and produced a highly enjoyable collection; each story featuring a very unusual wedding.

Spellbound by L A Banks

The 13 aunts of Odelia Hatfield have been magically battling the 13 uncles of Jefferson McCoy for generations, so their forthcoming announcement of marriage isn't likely to be received well. The celibacy spell cast on the pair also doesn't help their situation.

Something Borrowed by Jim Butcher

Chicago's resident wizard Harry is all set to stand in as best man at Billy's wedding until the bride to be disappears from her wrecked and blood stained apartment. Unfortunately a faerie has taken her place and should Billy kiss her, his beloved Georgia will be lost forever.

Dead Man's Chest by Rachel Caine

Short and mousy Cecilia is still amazed that she's due to marry Ian Taylor, a real life romance cover model. Married aboard a boat, Cecilia quickly learns two things; her new husband wants to kill her and the ship's crew isn't strictly alive.

"All Shook Up" by P N Elrod

Catering for the wedding of a supermodel and pro wrestler, Frankie uses her "vibe" and realises this couple are too ill suited to share their future together; that is until an Elvis impersonator appears to work a little magic with his music.

The Wedding of Wylda Serene by Esther M Friesner

Wylda Serene is determined her wedding and its reception be held at The Club, despite the odd events which occur there since a member smuggled in a Sphinx. The guests are wary on the day; however no one expects the Gods themselves to gatecrash.

3.0 out of 5 stars Anthologies can be tricky things... 28 Jan 2007
Format:Paperback
You're never 100% certain of what you're going to get. They can be great for finding new authors and/or filling in the waiting period til the next book from your favourite author. Or they can make you feel like you've wasted your time.

Although word of mouth said that My Big Fat Supernatural Wedding was an uninspiring collection as a big fan of Jim Butcher, Charlaine Harris and Sherrilyn Kenyon I wanted to find out for myself.

Where it works - the stories that are set in an ongoing series. Jim Butcher's Something Borrowed is a solid entry into the Harry Dresden series. Although I'm not familiar with Lori Handeland's Night Creatures universe her story (Charmed by the Moon) still managed to draw me in, keep me interested and made me want to check out her backlist.

Sherrilyn Kenyon's story whilst not reaching the emotional intensity of Phantom Lover from the Midnight Pleasures anthology is a vast improvement on Until Death Do We Part (Velkan and Retta's story from the Love at First Bite antho.)Though I wish she would cut down on the point of view head hopping.

One other story that stood out for me was Esther Friesner's The Wedding of Wylda Serene. Whilst slow to get into it had some very witty lines that had me laughing out loud.

Having read the stories I am disappointed. Overall the anthology is okay, but there is not enough here that stands out. Maybe it's a case of trying to cram too many authors in to one book.

Anthologies I would recommend - for Sherrilyn Kenyon - Midnight Pleasures, Stroke of Midnight. For Charlaine Harris - Bite (as part of the ongoing Sookie series), Night's Edge (standalone story).

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting... 28 Aug 2006
By Detra Fitch TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
Nine bestselling authors come together and blend their talents to create a magical brew just for you, the reader. This novel is a collection of nine short stories. They are perfect for October reading, of course. The titles and authors are as follows:

Spellbound by L.A. Banks

Something Borrowed by Jim Butcher

Dead Man's Chest by Rachel Cain

All Shook Up by P. N. Elrod

The Wedding of Wylda Serene by Esther M. Friesner

Cursed by the Moon by Lori Handeland

Tacky by Charlaine Harris

A Hard Day's Night Searcher by Sherrilyn Kenyon

...Or Forever Hold Your Peace by Susan Krinard

**** This book has something for everyone, be it voodoo, shapeshifters, curses, magic, vampires, or even Greek mythology. And that is only a sample of the things found within these pages. I found myself laughing at parts, as well as, sitting on the edge of my seat during some very suspense filled moments. Wonderful Autumn reading! ****

3.0 out of 5 stars My big fat disappointment 11 Jan 2009
By D. C. Stolk TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
I'm sorry to say that my high hopes for this anthology (based on the names of the contributors) turned into a big fat disappointment after having finished this book last night. Only one story, "Something Borrowed" by Jim Butcher, is a 5 star story; Rachel Caine's "Dead Man's Chest" gets 4 stars (excellent writing, as always with miss Caine, but a so-so story), as does the very funny "All Shook Up" by P.N. Elrod; the rest is a 2 star-story at the utmost. Okay, except for Friesner's story, that one rates 3 stars.
As I hadn't read some of the writers in this anthology before, I had hoped to discover a few new "add to my must-read list" authors. But, sad to say, that's not the case here. Judging by "Tacky", I'm wondering why Charlaine Harris has become so popular in the past few years. The rest of the contributions also doesn't rise above the level of a contribution to a fanzine. Now, if only the editor could have gotten contributions by writers like Kelly Armstrong, C.E. Murphy, Kim Harrison and Lilith Saintcrow, for example...
