"It's not easy packing a full story in a few short words, these authors have mastered that art."

Synopsis -

Review -

This anthology begins with Alexandra Ivy's On The Hunt with a Sentinel in search of a lost acolyte, and also for the Healer he let slip away. Unlike most authors who attempt to put a full blown love story into a short, their's is one that had already developed and blossomed throughout the years, until she left him practically at the altar. But don't look for simple romance here, there is also action, drama and not one dull moment. And a revelation at the end that will leaves fans bucking their eyeballs out of their heads. For readers new to this series, you'll be craving for the rest. For fans of this series, you won't want to miss out on this one. 

Rebecca Zanetti takes us away from the Realm and into the human world where Kryptonite effects more than just Superman. A meteorite has touched down on earth and its more than just an innocent rock. And those who survive the infection are the most dangerous to society at large. While scientist Nora Mendina struggles to find an antibiotic that will kill it, she also must come to terms with how she still feels about her ex-husband. There might not be any fangs in this one, but enough excitement, action and heat that paranormal fans will still be very happy with this read.

Kinda had mixed feelings about Phantom Embrace. I loved it all in all, as I truly love the series as a whole. But, the ending, to me, was sort of a double-edged sword whose arc I saw slicing from the beginning. Though it was indeed a beautiful love story that would do any Greek scribe proud. Fans will learn more of Yuri's background and really see into the heart of him, and love him all the more. As he begins to fall in love with an unexpected character, they Guardians face one of their biggest threats. Vampires who are not only trained in combat, but have an even deadly tranquilizer than before. The question is will they be able to find and eliminate this threat before its too late?

Someone really needs to tell Nina LaShay to just give up on the runway, especially during fashion week. In Hannah Jane's Stake Out Nina is attempting to prepare her models for the catwalk, and yet again has a rival with other plans for her. At least this time around she isn't being accused of murder. Its' worst, the model she just fired has been turned, and its up to her to find and stop her before the Big City has a much smaller population. You don't have to be a fan of the series', or even have read it, to enjoy this laugh out loud paranormal comic relief. 

On the Hunt is perfect for all paranormal lovers. There is something for everyone within these stories, and perfect samples of a few fantastic series'.
