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!

These are 4 really great stories all intertwined together. They are funny and sexy w/alot of antics & very different demons, vamps, fairies, etc. You will be laughing out loud. Hope these girls get together again soon for more.

I really enjoyed this book. The ideaâa town created as a haven for supernatural beings by a demon who suddenly wants to do good, is a wonderful idea. All of the storied take place in Mysteria and are intermingled enough to keep them interesting. The first story tells the tale of Damon, the demon who created Mysteria and then was punished by Satan by being turned into a mortal man and being banished to Mysteria. All of the stories are romances with just a little bit of paranormal thrown in. My least favorite story was the one by MJD. It was very disjointed and a bit odd. But overall, all 4 stories were fun to read and I definitely look forward to more stories from 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.

Not a bad read overall but deffinetly not a keeper.

The idea was good but the stories just weren't developed enough. The first had to set up the premise so it started slow but ended up really good but it just ended to quick.

Tha second was just blah. It didn't flow, it didn't make much sense and wasn't intereting- Lone Wolf I think.

The last two were my favorites. They were interesting, had a plot, romance and I didn't feel like I was left hanging. They also fit together the best of all four.

I read this just due to PC Cast being one of may favorite authors and again I loved her story in here. This is deffinetly not her best work by any means but I did enjoy it. I also enjoyed Gena Showalter's enough to pick up a few of her other books.

This was the first paranormal book that I have read that has involved werewolves, witches, demons, etc. I thought that the stories were all fairly good, except that the second story did not seem to have a very good story line, it was hard to follow. All of the other stories were interesting and kept me reading.
