I only read the Charlaine harris chapter and it doesn't involve any of the SVM characters except Sookie and Hunter.

Perfect description - a bunch of nice bite sized stories.

I borrowed this because I wanted to read the Ilona Andrews story (which was perfect), but I was impressed with a lot of them. I was really struck by the story 'Iphigenia in Aulis', and have already put holds on Mike Carey's books because of it. However, a few of the stories were just too cutesy for me, so I couldn't give a perfect score.

A nice anthology. Not really horror.

Great book, enjoyed all the stories inside. Some were quite chilling, others just fun!

As always, Ms.Harris does not disappoint. I love the moral behind her short story, and actually really like all the other shorts from this book, probably will buy a copy in the future.
