My favorite was Dragon on Top by Aiken as I love all of the dragon series. For those who don't enjoy sarcasm or humor in your paranormal reading - you won't enjoy Aiken. Her dragons and shifters are filled with egotistical creatures with sharp tongues and wits.
Vampire Fight Club by Larissa Ione is related to her Demonica series concerning the demon world. This was a fully developed short story that added to that series and her next which I also enjoyed. But as the series does deal with a lot of violence this may turn off some readers. I happened to enjoy the series and can't wait for the next novel.
Darkness Eternal by Alexandra Ivy was a new author to try out. I am not familiar with the Guardians of Eternity but I'm interested in going back and reading more. I have no problem with the "mate means love" concept as some others do.
Kane by Jacqueln Frank was also very well developed and I enjoyed it too. In fact, I liked this short story better than some other full novels because Jacqueln Frank tends to become some what repetitive in her full novels and this was too short for that.
With that said - this was one anthology that was worth the price and time. Every story was fully developed and enjoyable.
First, are the authors GOOD? By that I mean is their writing well done enough that they can get a full feel in terms of plot/emotions/characters all compressed into a shorter work. By using characters (new or otherwise) they do have a little easier time, but still it can be difficult to make the reader care when there is less time to set the story.
Second, are the stories good? Kind of the off shoot from number 1...not only are the authors skilled, but do they actually pull it off? Do I care about the characters? Do I care what happens?
Third, if it's a series I've read does the story fit in the context of the series, have the same feel, maybe even pull in a few loose ends?
Fourth, if it's a series I've not read, does the story make sense to me without having read the others? And more importantly, does it make me want to go read the rest of them?
Fifth, are all or most of the stories good enough to give satisfactory answers to the above? Reading an anthology where you only enjoy one or two of the stories is just a disappointment!
Sooo, how did this one do? Of the 4 authors/series I'd only read Larissa Ione's Demonica and Lords of Deliverance series (and somehow I hear banjos when I read that title) which are connected. Her entry here involves a minor character from her Demonica series, but also brings in some history of her Deliverance books (ne-ne ne-ne ne-ner), but we do see some old favorites. I really enjoyed this and felt like it was very well done and loved how it fit with her other works. A+!
Next, I also very, very much enjoyed G. A. Aiken's entry. I've read her work as her alter ego Shelley Laurentson (Magnus Pack, Pride series) and loved those. Now I've had a taste of the GA Aiken/dragons I now have yet another series to add to the top of my 'read this next' list.
The Jacquelyn Frank and Alexandra Ivy stories were also most excellent and also have piqued my interest in the rest of their books as well, just a hair less than Aiken's, but not by much--and others may have different tastes of course.
In other words this anthology met all my requirements--which might actually be a problem because that just added a ton to my reading list.
