This review is from: The Mammoth Book of Paranormal Romance (Mammoth Books) (Paperback)
This is a fantastic anthology for anyone who enjoys paranormal stories, especially paranormal romance. The offerings vary from paranormal to futuristic to fantasy--something for everyone. There are two stories that didn't resonate with me, but the rest I rate as good, very good, or excellent. Because there are so many, I shall mention only my favorites here.
Taking Hold by Anya Bast 4*. Wonderful werewolf romance.
Daniel by C.T Adams and Cathy Clamp 4*. Vampire romance. Great characters.
Light Through Fog by Holly Lisle 4*. Evocative tearjerker. Something a little different to the usual paranormal romance.
The Tuesday Enchantress by Mary Jo Putney 4*. Great characters and we get a glimpse of an interesting world.
Trinity Blue by Eve Silver 5*. I already love Eve Silver's books, but if I hadn't read them yet, this story would make me rush out to buy them.
Grace of Small Magics by Ilona Andrews 5*. Wonderful world building and interesting characters. I haven't read any of Ilona Andrews's full-length books yet, but I have one on my tbr pile that I've just moved to the top.
Pele's Tears by Catherine Mulvany 4*. Loved the setting and the premise.
Pack by Jeaniene Frost 5*. Another one that made me immediately check on Amazon for other books by this author. Great characters.
When Gargoyles Fly by Lori Devoti 5*. Interesting characters--something a little different.
The Lighthouse Keeper and his Wife 4*. Interesting concept. I wanted to give this 5*, but it was the hero who just held me back from doing that.
At Second Bite by Michelle Rowan 4.5*. This is a fairly standard vampire story, but I loved the characters and the author's voice.
In Sheep's Clothing by Maljean Brook 5*. Loved the characters and the setting. This is another author I shall seek out more from
The Dream Catcher by Jennifer Ashley 5*. I loved the concept of this story; it's more fantasy than paranormal. The characters and world building are great and I loved the author's voice. I shall be searching out more by Jennifer Ashley.
I highly recommend this anthology to all lovers of paranormal. It's a great way to discover new authors.
