If you love magic, shapeshifters, ghosts, demons and romance as well as little bit of everything else all in one place, look no further!
Moon, Mist and Magic is a collection of five stories of romance that stretch the borders of imagination and will cause the reader to dive into a world that movies can only attempt to replicate. The five stories have one common thread, they involve the paranormal and an element of romance. Each story is written by a different author, while they all are collected into one book they are not bound to one another by a common story line.
Personally I found the collection to be great; the condensed stories do not leave the reader lacking as they all find completion by the end. The detail for each story resonates strongly with the reader. Each story had a little to offer the reader in various ways, for example, A Ghost of a Chance looks at family secrets and family ties, which also resonates strongly with The Keeper which also pulls very strongly on family lineage and secrets that are held. Myths and Legends 101 can cause the reader to focus on their own perception of the world in which we reside in a more mundane sense while Dangerous Dreams and Witch You Were Here challenge the reader’s perception of the realized world that we tend to take for granted.
The editing was clean, the story lines were clear and character interaction and development-even for shorter stories was great. When I found one story was ending I was elated to begin the next story! Each author has a great skill at drawing the reader in and entertaining with an out-of-this-world story.
This was one collection of stories that you don’t want to miss! Do you want to know the best part? All of the proceeds are donated to the World Wildlife Fund so you can even feel better in supporting the purchase of the book by knowing you are supporting the world in which we all share!
