    " I got this to in order to read the shorts listed below. I'm not usually a fan of anthologies but this was fun. All the stories were strongly linked by a Christmas and werewolf theme, but each of the authors explored the ideas in different ways. Most of these writers are horror rather than UF and there are no PNR stories here though Kerri Arthur and Charlaine Harris are close. Even though I am not really a horror reader I was entertained. The 15 shorts in this anthology are quite light-hearted & tongue in cheek: some are stories with a twist, some are retellings of Christmas tales within a werewolf or paranormal framework, some just have characters working in a seasonal setting. Many are quite short which was good- they fulfilled their brief then stopped. This also meant that you never really got irritated by a narrative style that you were uncomfortable with. Most significantly all the authors seemed to have fun writing them, and that enthusiasm was catching. Some readers may be irritated by the recurring Christmas theme, the the short length of the stories or by the lack of PNR given that it is edited by Charlaine Harris. Think of them as a Christmas smorgasbord of werewolf snacks with a smattering of meatier spin off tales from established UF writers. There are too many to review each one but I've added brief comments on the 4 or 5 that caused me to request this for Christmas. 1. Charlaine Harris - Sookie Gift Wrap #8.5: I actually preferred this to the novels probably because it did't have Eric or Bill. Sookie is expecting solitary Christmas. A bit tongue in cheek.4* 2. Patricia Briggs - Star of David #3.5?- great story with David Christiansen, who gets a call from his estranged daughter just before Christmas. Great pace. 5* 3. Karen Chance - Rogue Elements4* creates a were - community within her existing world of war mages featuring Lia and her family. Needs a second read - too much packed in too fast - new view of her established world. Lia is more like Dory or Andrea from Ilona Andrews. 4. Carrie Vaughn - Il Est NeDavid # 2 - a lone werewolf seeks help from Kitty. This reminded me why I liked the Kitty series. Great short: Kitty at her best. 5*. 5. Keri Arthur - Christmas Past Brodie joins the heroine, Hannah, for a Christmas stake out. PR but romantic rather than sexy-quite sweet 4* "

    " After struggling thru the "Many Bloody Returns" anthology, which was mediocre at best, in my opinion, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed "Wolfbane and Mistletoe"! So much so that I wouldn't mind owning a copy of this anthology to re-read during the holidays for that "it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas" feeling that only reading about werewolves can achieve ;) Also surprising was the fact that the Sookie Stackhouse story was one of my least favorites.
