A good way to explore new authors,
This review is from: Enthralled: Paranormal Diversions (Paperback)
I'd recommend reading this book if:
1. It has stories by authors you have enjoyed reading.
2. If you like to read everything by an author you like.
3. If you really enjoy the genre but sometimes are just too busy to commit to a whole book.
4. If you are looking for new authors to read but don't like to leave books unfinished (even if you don't like them.)
5. You don't want to risk wasting your money on something you don't enjoy.
6. If you are looking for a gift for someone who enjoys paranormal / urban fantasy fiction.
I really enjoyed this book. It was interesting to see the different interpretations of the journey theme. I doubt I will be getting the novels of every author in it but didn't regret reading any of the individual stories. I 'found' the book as I have read much of the published work of Rachel Caine, Rachel Vincent and Melissa Marr.
However, personally, the reason I am so glad I read this is discovering Jennifer Lynn Barnes. I absolutely loved 'The Third Kind'. I have not read any of her other work yet but will definitely be changing that. Unfortunately at the time of writing Jennifer has not written any more on the characters in the short story but I'm hoping she will as it seems like it would be a great series.
There are a few other authors I will be trying out based on their short story in this book. I think it is worth the time of a paranormal / urban fantasy reader and may lead to many more pleasurable reading hours to come. If you haven't already used it the look inside feature gives you a taste of quite a few of the stories.
