Four of the bestselling names in romance and fantasy come together in this collection of thrilling novellas featuring powerful women who know how to handle a hex or two...
New York Times bestselling author Ilona Andrews spins "Magic Dreams." Shapeshifting tigress Dali Harimau finds herself in deep waters when she must challenge a dark being to a battle of wits or risk losing the man for whom she secretly longs.
In "Ice Shards," New York Times bestselling author Yasmine Galenorn returns to the Otherworld as Iris Kuusi, a Finnish house sprite, journeys to the frozen Northlands to confront the crazed shadow of her former lover and break the curse that is keeping her from marrying the man she loves.
National bestselling author Allyson James takes you to Magellan, Arizona, where Stormwalker Janet Begay and her friends are trapped by a powerful curse. It will take every bit of magic simmering beneath her skin for the Stormwalker to survive being "Double Hexed."
From national bestselling author Jeanne C. Stein comes "Blood Debt," in which bounty-hunter-turned-vampire Anna Strong is visited by three witches who ask her to right an old magical wrong. Anna will have to live up to her last name to make it through alive.

I picked this book up because Yasmine Galenorn’s story

What I liked the Most? Iris’ story – the depth of the cold

What I liked the Least? Allyson James & Jeanne Stein just simply could not get into them – perhaps if I started with book 1 in both series

Review: Ilona Andrews "Magic Dreams." I would have to say that while the other books in this series kinda bored me – this had me rolling on the floor laughing Jim gets hit with the sleepies, Dali is a spellcasting vegan white tiger, Asian mommies loosing their accent & magic snails make for a very interesting & entertaining read.
Yasmine Galenorn "Ice Shards" YAY!! Iris is ready to take back her power and she is up for the task with the assistance of the Elemental Lord Howl, his family and of course a few of her friends (Camille, Smokey, & Rox). She needs to return home & face what occurred all those years ago – did or didn’t she kill her Priest & lover.
Allyson James "Double Hexed." Did not finish – I was not impressed with the scattered focus and snobby undertones that were used in the opening gambits of the story.
Jeanne C. Stein "Blood Debt," Did not finish – Once again I was not impressed, this short story depends on you having read the series so you know what’s going on.

Recommended to:I would have to say that Magic Dreams could be for anyone but the other 3 are better left to fans of the series

Best Quote: "Minutes passed by. A little blue butterfly landed on my nose. I blinked at it and it fluttered to my ear. A big yellow butterfly gently floated over and landed on my paw. Soon a whole swarm of them floated up and down around me, like a swirl of multicolored petals. It happened in my backyard, too, if the magic was strong enough. Butterflies were small and light, and very magic sensitive. For some reason I made them feel safe and they gravitated to me like iron shavings to a magnet. They ruined my ferocious badass image, but you’d have to be a complete beast to swat butterflies. If a baby deer frolicked out from between the buildings trying to cuddle up, I would roar. I wouldn’t bite it, but I would roar. I had my limits."
