    " OK, here's the deal. This is one of those books full of short stories by a variety of authors. I read the ones by Charlaine Harris and Ilona Andrews. They were both good and interesting to me because I read their series. The Harris story was about Sookie & Hunter. The Andrews story was about Julie. These stories wouldn't be as interesting to me without the knowledge of their whole worlds. Mostly because the premise is school settings and there is no romance. I like a little romance with my mystery or drama or action. I didn't read the rest of the stories, other than these 2 authors. "

    " Specific to the Charlaine Harris "Sookie" short story - it was a completely mundane short story about Sookie visiting Hunter's school and anticipating a shooting because of her telepathy. The characters (even Sookie) were totally flat, the ending predictable. This could have been a story about any characters, anywhere. "

    " Only read the Sookie story. Pretty good, was nice to see Hunter again. "
