"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!"

— Deanna (5 out of 5 stars)

    " 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. "

    " 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?? "

    " 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. "
