M. J. Davidson's "Dead Girls Don't Dance", was great. You have to read it. If for no other reason than the line about the "Incredible Journey". What a hoot. Ms. Davidson's Undead series about Vampire Queen Betsy is just fabulous. Ms. Davidson's sense of humor has had me LOL for hours.
"Burning Moon" by R. York was a good read, but couldn't compare to the other two offerings mentioned above. In the past Ms. York has wrote much better books, leading me to believe that the short story format is not her cup of tea. Trust me, her past novels are very good, and well worth buying.
As for the lead off story, "Beyond the Ardeur", it is quite simply a waste. Now before all the LKH fans get ready to hang me, let me explain that I am a rabid LKH fan also. I LOVE LKH. She and Nora Roberts' "In Death" series are the ONLY books I will buy in hardback and paperback both. However, the expectation from anyone who is not a hardcore LKH fan is that "Beyond the Ardeur" is a new short story. It's not. It is several chapters of the new LKH book, "Incubus Dreams", which will be published in hardback in September. Ms.Read more ›

The only cohesion between the stories was the supernatural element. Werewolves, vampires, demons...they do represent how very differently such things can be handled. The plus side of that, obviously, is the diversity. Whether you want `em steamy or silly, you're going to get something to satisfy. The downside is that they don't necessarily mesh that well. York's story was quite good, but I had to put the book aside for a full day before I could get out of Wilks' vision enough to get into it. A minor drawback at worst.
While I'm sure there are some readers who will feel differently, the only story in the anthology that did not please my particular tastes was the Hamilton story. I truly enjoyed her early Anita Blake novels but have found recently that the kink seems to matter more than the plot. I prefer more of a blending of the two, and there was less plot than usual in her entry here--possibly because this "short story" is a mashed excerpt from her latest novel. For those who find the sex in those stories more compelling than the mysteries, this may be a nice little sampler. Personally, it doesn't really whet my appetite.
Wilks upcoming novel in this new series, Tempting Danger, on the other hand, is already on my list.
