    Today's hottest urban fantasy authors come together in this delicious brew that crackles and boils over with tales of powerful witches and dark magic! For anyone who's ever wondered what lies beyond the limits of reality, who's imagined the secret spaces where witches wield fearsome magic, come and drink deep. Let yourself fall under the spell of this bewitching collection!

    Overall

    I am a great fan of the urban fantasy genre and also of things Celtic. I realize that current stories of the supernatural often include Irish and Scottish references. I was appalled at the pronunciation of fairly common celtic words and idioms. Samhain is never, as far as I know, pronounced SAM-hain, it is SOW-in; Seamus is not SEE-mus, but SHAY-mus; likewise Riordan is pronounced REAR-don, not ree-OR-din, etc.. This was extremely distracting and spoiled the experience of a good anthology. Whoever chooses the readers should at the very least check to see if they know how to pronounce the words contained in the stories. This would have been a simple process, especially with the resources of the internet. I cannot recommend this recording. Read the book!
