This was a really cute book. It is a collection of four short stories written by four different authors that are connected. The stories are set in Mysteria CO a town where vampires and werewolves live openly and every type of creature is welcome. It was pure fluff but it was good fluff. I would recommend it to anyone who likes a light read. It gets a 5 out of 5.

This book is really cute. It's like a paranormal desperate housewives.
Susan Grant's "Mortal in Mysteria" started out a little different and almost put me off. It did change tune quite quickly and turned out to be every girl's wish come true. Quite good for her first story.
MaryJanice Davidson's "Alone Wolf" was not that appealing. It was like it was tossed together quickly. I'm not sure if this will lead to her new book "Sleeping with Fishes" or not but it does have some of those elements in it.
Gena Showalter's "Witches of Mysteria and The Dead Who Love Them" is adorable. It's funny to see just what 3 sisters can get themselves into in a town of strange people. I liked this one considerably.
P.C. Cast's "Candy Cox and The Big Bad Werewolf" is another cute screwed up paranormal romance. This story had me chuckling.
All in all, I have to say you will enjoy this book. The first two stories are a little slower reading than the last two but they all tie in with each other. What a weird town. If you haven't heard of a demon or some other outlandish creature then just go to Mysteria!

Overall, a good collection of stories.
My favorite was the first one, "Mortal in Mysteria," by Susan Grant. It's a fully-realized story, and the main cast was kept to a reasonable size so that the characters could be well fleshed-out.
The second story in the collection, "Alone Wolf," by MaryJanice Davidson, was my least favorite. It appears that this is a short story that falls within a larger framework - i.e. it is part of a larger series or storyline, and thus relies on knowledge of that framework for the story to work. As this was the first thing I'd read by Davidson, the whole story kind of fell flat for me.
The remaining two stories ("The Witches of Mysteria and the Dead Who Love Them," by Gena Showalter and "Candy Cox and the Big Bad (Were)Wolf," by P.C. Cast) are somewhat intertwined, borrowing characters from one another. So, these should be read together. I enjoyed both of them, but I didn't find either of them to be spectacular.
