This book contains five short stories of supernatural betrayal. The story I liked the most was “By Any Other Name” which was the first story. My second one is “A Gathering of Succubi”. The other three were ok just didn’t draw me in as much.
Betrayal is the theme of these stories and to the main participants in the story the betrayal can be almost debilitating. There is also a cop theme thru several of the stories. The main characters are some very strong females that will fight for you and with you.
By Any Other Name – that one drew me in immediately I do read a lot of murder mysteries and books of that nature and the characters were believable even thou they had animal characteristics. That story seemed to have the most flesh and the explanation of the different species was vey intriguing and packed with info. The female lead Rye had some bachelor male tendencies with the varied gentlemen in her private life; I thought it was very amusing with the gender reversal. Along the way with rescuing her partner she gets help from an unusual source and betrayal certainly rocked her world.
I Was Asked To Kill Him – the female lead in this story is a pacifist. She has a great power and with that power she has chosen to lay low and not let that power put her in a position where she will do something that will change her and disappoint her family. The man she loves betrays her in the worst possible way and she spends five years in a psych ward. The one point I did like about this story that after she finds out about his betrayal even thou he is omnipotent and a hot looking man she doesn’t go back to him. He wants her back and she says no. Other than her finally standing up to his bullying this story really had me confused most of the time.
Pear Town Ruckus – Leah is a gambler and lives by her wits. She is playing for her rent when things go side ways. Leah has telekinesis and her gambling Xavier partner could transmute objects along with telekinesis, which can come in handy in a fight. Which ironically is what she and Xavier end up having to do as she is accused of killing someone after their winning game and has to go about proving that she is innocent. This story had a lot of action, sometimes a bit confusing and a little disjointed.
Belle of The Ball – Kerry is living on the streets and she gets presented with an opportunity to live a better life. While on the surface this may seem good she finds out there is a lot more at stake than previously thought. For me this story was the least engaging of the stories, at one point I totally forgot what the story was about when I put the book down to do something else.
A Gathering of Succubi – Kia is in law enforcement, she’s a succubi and her partner has dragon DNA. While there was lots of talk about sex and Kia had several different sexual partners at different times according to her bodies needs it wasn’t overtly graphic sexually. This one was a fun knock some heads together, have some hot sheet time and keep moving kind of story.
The stories all dealt with different forms of betrayal and how the betrayed dealt with the fallout from discovery. The first story and the last story were my favorite and those could have been fleshed out to make their own stories I think. There were some intriguing elements that I have never read before and that at least made it a good read.
