I always buy these yearly anthologies simply for the new Eve Dallas/Roarke novella by J.D. Robb. She doesn't disappoint with ETERNITY IN DEATH, which centers around an evil psychopath who truly believes himself to be a vampire.
Mary Blayney's story, AMY AND THE EARL'S AMAZING ADVENTURE, actually didn't make much sense to me, and I didn't finish it.
Ruth Ryan Langan writes a really good Scottish time travel story with TIMELESS. Although I don't really like historicals, I enjoyed this short story.
ON THE FRINGE by Mary Kay McComas is another time travel, about a wife who wonders what life would have been like if she'd made different choices and decisions.
DEAD OF NIGHT is worth the read simply for J.D. Robb's story, but TIMELESS is also a pretty good read.
I orginally ordered this book for the JD Robb story. That was, of course, great! The next two I really enjoyed, but the last story was alright. I probably would not have read it had it not been in this anthology.
This was my first experience with an anthology. I love Nora Roberts but I had never read her writing as J. D. Robb, so I thought I would give this one a try. I have found that I don't really care for anthologies. I need a little more substance to my reading. I found the four stories in this anthology just alright. I think from now on I will stick with a regular length novel.
