Review

"It would be tough to find a more talented or sizzling group of authors than this outstanding quartet... No question, these paranormal mavens deliver top-notch supernatural thrills!" -- "RT Book Review"

About 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A little bit of fun 4 Mar 2008
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I enjoyed this book. Some writers can not write short stories but the stories in this book are well written and more important they are fun to read. The writers take a charactor from one of the other books, and tell a story from their point of view.
These stories are perfect if you don't have the time to read a "Full" or big book. Also it gives you a taste of different writers. And you don't feel cheated when you read the stories as they have a start a middle and a good ending. I will not go into what each tale is about but it is one of the best books I have picked up in a while.

Anthologies in which all the stories are good are a rarity so treasure this one.These delightful short stories are both an introduction to four top authors and their series and good examples of the shorter form. The different stories are all told from the viewpoint of the heroine.

4.0 out of 5 stars There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy. -Shakespeare (Hamlet) 20 Mar 2008
By Cherise Everhard - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is a paranormal romance anthology containing four short stories from four different authors.

The Majicka - By MaryJanice Davidson - a humorous tale about a wealthy farm/land owner that takes in stray folk from the mystical realm; a fairy, a vampire, a werewolf and a woman trapped within a car. When another mysterious stranger ends up on her doorstep it's to reveal something otherworldly about herself.

Voodoo Moon - By Lori Handeland - A serial killer who leaves absolutely no clues at the crime scenes in a small town, except voodoo dolls, has the sheriff finally asking for help from the FBI. Skeptical agent Dana Duran doesn't believe in things that go bump in the night, but soon she starts seeing things she can't explain with her own eyes.

Breath of Magic - By Cheyenne McCray - A battle between good an evil and the possession of a powerful eye ensues in the city and the witches are paired up with Tuatha D'Danann warriors to help them in this power struggle.

Any Witch Way She Can - By Christine Warren - A human girl surrounded by a family of magical foxwomen, werewolves and other magical entities is an oddity. Randy doesn't mind her human status but seeks to find a love ever lasting conjuring a spell from one of her cousin's magical books. The result lands her in her grandmother's house in the middle of a dinner party in nothing but her pajamas.

My one problem with this anthology is one I share with most romance anthologies; making the characters fall in love in less than 100 pages. That means, typically, within a day of meeting these characters are oozing undying love for one another and usually it's not very convincing. I don't know why they insist on doing it that way when you can still have the romance, even the sex, with the characters FALLING in love; they just don't have to complete the journey and FALL in one day.

This is one of the better anthologies I have ever read. I enjoyed all the stories and found their paranormal plot's phenomenal. Breath of Magic left me lost a time or two as it seems to be part of a series I have never read, but for the most part I thoroughly enjoyed it. MaryJanice's had her signature humor all over that story, from the giant He-Fairy to the car with attitude, I giggled continuously. All in all each story lends a unique and exciting twist on the paranormal and on romance. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars A smorgesbord of witchy romances just in time for Halloween 9 Oct 2007
By melindeeloo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
A little something for everyone, this collection runs the gamut from heavily sensual to light and funny. But here's some of your favorite authors doing what they do so well, just in less space.

"The Majicka" by MaryJanice Davidson - With a penchant for wacky off the wall paranormal chick-lit heroines, Davidson has a style all her own that can be hit or miss, but this story really worked for me. Ireland Shea, who comes from a long line of relatives with sanity problems, just wants to be normal in spite of her talent for bringing home strays. Which wouldn't be that weird, except that the strays she acquires aren't animals - well, at lest not all of the time. Her roommates are: a pack-less werewolf, a vampire with a taste for the geriatric and a snobby fae male who just dropped in (literally). If things aren't crazy enough, she's just brought home a zombie with a major problem and gorgeous sexy stranger Michah turns up on her doorstep, claiming to be sent to train her in the ways of the Majicka, and he wants her to play Luke to his Obiwan. In spite of the prerequisite zaniness, Ireland and Michah had a goofy charm and it was impossible not to root for them and the rest of Ireland's "family" really end up pulling through for her in the end.

"Voodoo Moon" by Lori Handeland - No werewolves here, but Handeland has turned out a satisfying sexy short romance. FBI agent Dana "don't call me Scully" Duran is sent to Louisiana to investigate a rash of mysterious murders where the only clue is a voodoo doll of the victim at the crime scene and the spooky thing is there is no signs of forced entry. When Dana finds her own voodoo doll, she has only until the next full moon to find a way to defeat the killer who just maybe not of this world. Dana will just have to silence her inner skeptic, because it will take the magic of love and the help of local voodoo expert sexy Julian Portier to stop the killer once and for all. Dana and Julian really sizzle, after reading her disappointing story in the recent Moon Fever anthology I am glad to see Handleland is back to doing what she has been doing so well in her Night Creatures series - the brooding tortured hero and the spunky capable heroine, who are inexplicably drawn to each other and must use their connection to fight the hidden evil

"Breath of Magic" by Cheyenne McCray, a short connected to her Magic Series.
This is the only one of the shorts that I really didn't like, but I suspect that if you are a fan of the series you will disagree with me here. Along with her fellow D'Anu witches, Sydney uses gray magic to continue to fight to keep the warlock Darkwolf from bringing the evil god Balour back and destroying the world. Paired with her in the fight is Conlan, a gorgeous D'Danann fae warrior. Sydney finds him magnetic and though she tries to avoid the sensual pull of this rugged fighter, she is finding herself rethinking her stance on one night stands. After all, if the world is going to end tomorrow, she might as well go out with a satisfied smile on her face. The language was just crude enough that it kept me from connecting emotionally with Sydney and Conlan, whenever they got intimate the focus was more on the mechanics of the act instead of the emotions behind it. I had the same reaction when attempting to read McCray's Forbidden Magic (Magic Series, Book 1), the first novel in the series. For fans of the series, you probably won't want to miss this story, since the over all plot takes a baby step forward, and questions are raised about Darkwolf's agenda.

"Any Witch Way She Can" by Christine Warren. Another winner for me, Warren's Other series is one of my favorites, with witches, weres, demons, vamps and fae. If you've read Wolf at the Door (The Others, Book 1), you will recognize Randy, Cassidy, Quinn and Randy's grandmother here. Suddenly Randy realizes that she no longer wants to date, she wants a mate like her cousin werefox Cassidy. Unfortunately, Randy's the only human in her family, so she can't just sniff one out. But her cousin has a spell book. Now a love spell would be "crass and immoral", but a spell that directs you toward the one you should be with? Well that's like a "cosmic personal ad". So Randy pulls out the recipe and cooks up a spell, but instead of bringing her love, it drops her a day back in time on her grandmother's rug at the feet of hunky witch Michael. And while Randy thinks her spell's a bust, Michael know that fate and magic have brought Randy here because he's the perfect man for her. I immediately fell in love with Michael, besides being eye candy, he is the perfect man for hardheaded prickly Randy. Michael's patient, passionate and yet practical enough to press Randy and take advantage of their instant attraction-- fates brought her to him and there's no way he's letting her get away.

Even with one story that I didn't particularly care for, this was still a worthwhile anthology and a great "fix" in between series from some of my favorite authors.

In addition to the Wolf at the Door mentioned above, the Others series by Christine Warren:
She's No Faerie Princess (The Others, Book 2)
The Demon You Know (The Others, Book 3)
Howl at the Moon (The Others, Book 4)

5.0 out of 5 stars No Rest for the Witches 20 Nov 2007
By M. Nix - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The Majicka by MaryJanice Davidson

Ireland Shea has quite a collection of roommates. They include a
vampire, a werewolf, a fairy and a spirit stuck in a car. When they
find a zombie roaming around the cemetery one night, she does what any
Good Samaritan does. She brings her home. Micah is looking to train
the next Majicka, the guardian of all things magic. When he meets
Ireland, he knows she's special. He just doesn't know how special.

Full of MaryJanice Davidson's special brand of wit and sarcasm, The
Majicka is a fun tale that kept me laughing. I enjoyed meeting all of
the characters in this novella. They have quirky temperaments and
characteristics that come together in the end to provide a
spell-binding climax. Definitely a great read.

Voodoo Moon by Lori Handeland

FBI agent Dana "Don't Call Me Scully" Duran has been sent to Devil's
Fork, Louisiana to find a serial killer. When she arrives, the sheriff
tells her the only thing left at the crime scenes is a voodoo doll.
Julian Portier runs the local voodoo shop. He's Dana's top suspect,
until she finds out there are other forces at work.

Voodoo Moon kept me up way into the night, in more ways than one.
Eerie and seductive, I fell in love with the characters and the
setting. I hope this short is the beginning of a series, because I
loved the ending. This novella is not to be missed.

Breath of Magic by Cheyenne McCray

D'Anu witch Sydney Aline is fighting with her other witch sisters
against Darkwolf, a warlock, who has stolen the powerful eye of Balor.
Just when she thinks she has him cornered, things go wrong. That's
when Conlan, a Tuatha D'Danann warrior, comes to help. Unfortunately,
they lose the battle, but win each other. After that, they team up
with their fellow withes and warriors to battle for the eye and keep
its evil power from being unleashed on the world.

Breath of Magic is an action-packed ride. I feel in love with Conlan,
a warrior who definitely has a gentler side that made me tingle with
delight. Ms. McCray's story is a delightful return to the world of her
San Francisco witches.

Any Witch Way She Can by Christine Warren

Miranda "Randy" Berry is a non-magical person, even though many of her
family members are "others." Or so she thinks.

After being stood up, she decides to take matters into her own hands
and cast a spell to find her true love. The spell sends her spiraling
into her grandmother's house one day before, and into the waiting arms
of Michael Devon. Randy and her grandmother don't see eye to eye, but
this is Randy's chance to help the older woman overcome a huge
problem, and gain favor in her sight. And it doesn't hurt that Michael
is there to help her, every step of the way.

Breath of Magic was a delightful breath of fresh air. Randy is a
fantastic character who could be portrayed as bitter and selfish.
Instead she comes across as fun-loving, adventurous and self-reliant.
And Michael is drop dead sexy. This charming tale was my first
experience with Christine Warren, but won't be my last.

One thing I love about anthologies is the chance to get a sampling of
various authors. No Rest for the Witches was perfect for just that. I
visited two writers I love, MaryJanice Davidson and Cheyenne McCray,
and got a taste of Lori Handeland and Christine Warren. Readers will
truly enjoy this foray into worlds that feature vampires, zombies,
voodoo and witches. I know I did.

4.0 out of 5 stars 1 out of 4 is not so good 21 Oct 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I really bought this book because of Christine Warren. Her story is part of the Others series. The other four although I read them, are not as good as hers. If you like the sci-fi stories with vampires, demons and faires you will probably like this book. If you are an Others fan you will really enjoy the story of Randy, who was introduced in the story "Wolf at the Door". She is Cassidy Poe's non-other cousin who decides to find true love with a spell from one of Cassidy's books. When the spell is completed she finds herself on the floor of her grandmother's house, in her pajamas at the feet of both her grandmother and a sexy witch. A definate must read.

3.0 out of 5 stars A nice introduction to the authors 28 Jan 2008
By Wendy Coon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Okay since this is an anthology I guess I should rate each of the stories individually. The individual reviews will follow my overall thoughts of the anthology. A reoccurring hitch in each of the stories to me was the romances developed too quickly (even taking in account the nature of short stories) It was a nice introduction to each of the authors, and each story had their strong points and weak points.

"The Majicka" by Maryjanice Davison (4.5/5)
This was a hilarious short story that parodied at the fact that the numerous characters that toe (if not completely pass by) the line of becoming a Mary Sue/Gary Sue. You also had your various supernatural elements: a chosen one and her Guide, werewolves, vampires, fairies, etcetera, oh and you can't forget the not so understanding family members, several love at first sight (or after a few moments) romances and a mystery, all tied up into an enjoyable and light hearted read.

"Voodoo Moon" by Lori Handerland (3/5)
An FBI agent is sent to Devil's Fork to investigate a string of murders, the only clue being that of a voodoo doll with the same manner of death upon it. While there the FBI agent questions the owner of the local voodoo shop. She discovers that an evil spirit had been summoned, and the only way to send him back was to use a spell that was the exact opposite of the spell used to summon it. Interesting storyline, but I felt the ends could have been tied up a bit tighter.

"Breath of Magic' by Cheyenne McCray (3/5)
A group of eight soldiers (4 witches, 4 warriors) are the only defense between the world and a blind god out to take over the world. During this desperate battle, love blooms between one of the witches and her warrior partner. This story had the feel of a prolog or an introduction to a story, rather than a complete story. It was good, but when I finished, I felt like I was missing the rest of it.

"Any Witch Way She Can" by Christine Warren (3.5/5)
When the heroine decides to takes love into her own hands, and casts a love spell should act pretty much like a cosmic personal ad, she doesn't expect to relive the day that made her choose to do this spell. The idea of playing with time was quite amusing, especially since it was entirely accidental because a spell's instructions weren't followed to the letter. I was a bit miffed at the sudden development of powers, when the heroine had not previously shown any magical abilities in over thirty years.
