    " I love reading Anothologies because it gives me the opprotunity to explore authors. This was no exceptions and gave me a first look into Lynsay and I liked it. Now I will read more. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deanna | 2/8/2014

    " What's not to love about this book? JF has done it again! The plot was so good I think she could have written it into another novel. I warmed up to Ian in this book... a lot! He was hilarious! A must read for any Night Huntress novels fan. I haven't read the Lynsay Sands part... Yet. Until I read more of her work, then I will dive into that portion of this novella. As for JF 5 stars once again! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pairee | 1/16/2014

    " I only read the Night Huntress story and it was seriously fantastic. Well done JF, well done indeed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zoe | 1/16/2014

    " I only read the NH short story which was very lengthy. A lot of time passes here which is odd, especially as most of it is skipped. Not used to that in NH. The whole team is in danger and only Cat, Denise and Ian can help. Dare I say that this book is better than #6?! At the end there is a shock surprise from Ian but one that is appreciated by Bones. BTW, can we kill Annette yet?? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amber | 1/1/2014

    " Not sure what to put for stars. Lynsay Sands short story was kind of a dud; light, but nothing special. Jeaniene Frost hit a home run; political espionage with vampires. Makes me happy every time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sonia | 12/28/2013

    " I enjoyed the Argenau story, but it was too much a romance for me! I loved the Night Huntress story, and will have to start reading the series as I have enjoyed the short stories I have read. "

    " I skimmed through Lynsay Sands' story, I read it mostly for Jeaniene Frost's story. I will say it is a must read for those who follow the series and worth the read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristen | 7/9/2013

    " Two fun holiday stories. I haven't read anything else by Lynsay Sands and I'd be willing to read more of her for fun paranormal romance. The story by Jeaniene Frost was a page turning adventure for Cat & Bones and the gang. "

    " I have enjoyed this novella much more than the last two Cat and Bones books.

    I don't understand how they made a whole novel of One Grave at Time, and reduced this story to an Anthology.

    Plus, you get a nice excerpt of the new Once Burned book! "
