Jackie Kessler's and Richelle Mead's stories are both continuations of previous major releases. I never read these previous stories, and I felt that it would have probably helped to read them before reading the short continuations. Kessler's "A Hell of a Time" is the continuation of "Hell's Bells." Mead's "City of Demons" is the continuation of "Succubus Blues." So, I would suggest that you might get more out of these continuations if you read their prequels first and it would have probably made me appreciate the stories more too.
Overall these stories were enjoyable reads, but after finding out that 2 of the 4 stories were previously published I have become curious to read their first anthology for the other stories they were published with.
Jackie Kessler' "A Hell of a Time" I was a bit disappointed by this short story. It was good but Jezzie seems to be so dependent on Paul and at times seems a little desperate. It's not just that she is flaky but she's an ex-succubus who seems so one dimensional, needy and dense. For someone to have survived for millennias, you'd think she would be a little less bratty. In this story Jezzie and Paul are on a romantic get away and are attacked by a nymph damned to remain in that forest by the King.
Richelle Mead- "City of Demons" This story was the best out of the bunch. Richelle always delivers and never disappoints. Georgina and Seth are off on a little get-a-way weekend until Georgie's boss, Jerome, dumps his obligation on her. Georgie fills in Jerome's duty as a juror in the murder trial of one demon accused of killing another. I love the world Richelle builds. The idea that demons were once angels that had fallen really appeals to me. Georgie gets a once in a lifetime opportunity to sleep w/ Seth w/ no soul sucking repercussions but to get that wish she must do something vile first.Read more ›
THE YEARNING by Hannah Howell. In this story a young woman tries to break a curse which has blanketed two families for over four hundred years. The ancestress of Sophie Hay cursed her unborn child whose father, a MacCordy, left her; the curse called for the MacCordy line to never find happiness until they chose love over wealth and social position. Unfortunately for Sophie, the curse rebounded on Mona Galt, her ancestress, and meant that the Galt women's descendents find happiness briefly and then it is snatched away from them. She decides to visit the current MacCordy Laird and try to help him. She finds a morose man, Alpin MacCordy, whose beast inside is almost at the point of mastering him. Can Sophie and Alpin find love and freedom from the curse?
This is a good read with few surprises but some good characterisation and a satisfactory resolution.
A HELL OF A TIME by Jackie Kessler continues the story of Jessie/Jezebel from Hell's Belles. In this story Jessie and Paul decide to go away for a quiet weekend at a cabin in the countryside. Despite Jessie's nature now being human, rather than succubus, she finds herself unwelcome and that some of the entities already at the cabin want to drive her away. Jessie knows that her former life must cause some problems to Paul and she tries to shield him from the supernatural events that are going on, but those working against her are trying harder than she thinks and she and Paul must face up to some of the difficulties she's trying to avoid.Read more ›
Jackie Kessler's story about Paul and Jesse and a trip to the great outdoors made me remember there is a good reason why I don't like roughing it. There are scary things in the woods. You can take the girl out of the city, but you can't take the city out of the girl. Well written and fast paced read.
Richelle Mead's characters, succubus Georgina and her human boyfriend, Seth take a trip so Georgina can serve supernatural jury duty for her boss, Jerome. She gets caught up in solving the case and testing Seth's commitment. Entertaining glimpse into more of Mead's world...I am looking forward to her next Succubus book.
Lynsay Sands surprised me with a historical story because I had only read her contemporary Argeneau Vampire books. She does a good job drawing you into her tale of a lonely vampire and the woman who brings light into his life.
I found Hannah Lowell's historical story delightful. Taking place in Scotland, it deals with a curse between two families and what one woman is willing to go through to end it.
Although I was puzzled as to why the stories were not all comtemporaries, I was pleased with them as a whole and felt entertained as I read. WHat more can you ask from an anthology?
