Fall under the intoxicating spell of their hex appeal… In the magical world that lies hidden beneath our own, witches and conjurers play deadly games. They know just the right spell to kill a man with one kiss—or raise him back again. And they’re not afraid to exact sweet revenge on those who dare to cross them. But what if you’re the unlucky soul who falls victim to a conjurer’s curse? And if you had the power to cast a magic spell of your own, would you use it?In this bewitching collection, nine of today’s hottest paranormal authors tell all-new, otherworldly tales. Spellbinding stories featuring bigfoot, albino vampires, professional wizards, resurrected boyfriends and even a sex droid from the twenty- third century named Silicon Lily. But as our conjurers are about to discover, it’s all fun and games until someone gets hexed. And sometimes, even the best spun spells can lead to complete and utter mayhem.

Anthology Average is 3 stars. There were a few I thought were pretty good, but nothing outstanding. One story I thought would be worth pursuing the series but was turned off by the blurbs.

A story is set in Kate Daniels universe, but the action takes place in Philadelphia instead of familiar Atlanta. We have Adam who is Saiman's cousin with the same an...
*Retribution Clause by Ilona Andrews only*Loved it. I know some people rate shorts low because, well, they're short. Some people can't write shorts well, others, pack just enough in to make it perfect. Any good book, when it's that good, you don't want it to end. This was a lovely short that lef...
Rating: 3.5 Stars Note: I only read Retribution Clause by Ilona Andrews from this. As always, you can't get much better than an Ilona Andrews novella. Although this has nothing to do with Kate or Curran, the new characters are just as deep, engaging, and witty. My only qualm is that it ended far too...
