Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: My Big Fat Supernatural Wedding (Paperback)
I'd really enjoyed what I'd previously read of both Sherrilyn Kenyon and Susan Krinard, so buying this didn't seem too much of a risk .. I thought I'd be guaranteed 2 good reads and hoped to be introduced to at least one or two new writers whose work I'd also enjoy.
It didn't work that way. I probably will investigate a little more of Lori Handeland's writing, because for me, her offering was the best in this book, and I got the feeling that given room to develop a decent length of story she might just shine..
However my two "sure things" were so unlike the writings I've come to expect from Sherrilyn Kenyon and Susan Krinard that I actually checked to make sure I wasn't mistaken in whose story I was reading! Both stories were "ok .. ish". At best. (excuse me while I sob into my beer .. I was really tee'd off!)
As for the other stories .. I felt they were silly, lacking in substance even for short stories, and completely lacklustre.
There wasn't one which even held my attention - certainly nothing which made me rush through the chores so's I could dive back into the book.
Don't waste your money ;-)
