Usually I have mixed feelings about anthologies. This one surpassed my expectations. I loved each of the four stories presented.
- MaryJanice Davidson "The Majicka" -- I absolutely loved the crazy cast of characters in this story. As usual, we have a strong heroine that can't necessarily see her own worth. In the end, everything works out great, but what a ride. My only issue: Micah. Maybe it was because he wasn't as "out there" as the rest of the characters. But overall a good story.
- Lori Handeland "Voodoo Moon" -- A suspected serial killer, a voodoo king, a skeptical FBI agent, and a mysterious secret government agency. A great mystery story with twists and turns. The sex scenes were a bit intense for my tastes, but good.
- Cheyenne McCray "Breath of Magic" -- Probably the least favorite in this anthology, but still really good. Obviously this story goes along with a larger saga. McCray did a good job of giving enough information that I understood. But I'm sure it would be better after reading more of the saga. Good mythology and characters.
- Christine Warren "Any Witch Way She Can" -- Interesting love spell story. I definitely saw the ending coming, but it was still enjoyable. Great little story.
