From best-selling authors Ilona Andrews, Yasmine Galenorn, Allyson James, and Jeanne C. Stein comes an anthology of four all-new novellas featuring powerful women who know how to handle a hex or two.
In "Double Hexed" from Allyson James, a novella of the Stormwalker series, Janet and her friends find themselves locked in her hotel, victims of a hex cast by a very powerful sorcerer. And, as they work to release the spell before the sorcerer kills them all, they realize that their worst enemies just might be themselves.
In "Blood Debt" from Jeanne C. Stein, bounty-hunter-turned-vampire Anna Strong is visited by three witches who ask her to right an old magical wrong. Anna will have to live up to her name to make it through alive.
In "Magic Dreams" from Ilona Andrews, old legends and frightening nightmares come to life. The shapeshifting Tigress Dali Harimau finds herself in deep water when she must challenge a dark being to a battle of wits, or risk losing the man she secretly longs for.
Finally, in Yasmine Galenorn's "Ice Shards," Iris Kuusi, a Finnish house sprite who lives with the D'Artigo sisters, must journey to the frozen Northlands to confront the crazed shadow of the former lover she's accused of murdering, so she can break the curse keeping her from marrying the man she loves. This is a must-listen collection for fans of the paranormal.

"All four [novellas] feature strong female characters and unusual world-building with broad appeal." (Publishers Weekly)
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good magic story. I liked to connected points of the stories and it helped fill in a part of the Otherworld series about Ms Koosi. If you read Yasmine Galernom there is a story for you. If you read a story of magic and strong chicks you'll find a lot here.
Four stories with a bang. Sit back and be enthralled.
Love Ilona but could not stomach any other. I have every Ilona Andrews book. Will not buy any of the others.
Everything but Ilonas book.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
Originally bought this for Ilona Andrew's book.
Truthfully I just bought this for the Ilona Andrews book. But since it comes with four stories I must not waste my money. I really only liked Magic Dreams in this bunch of books, but I'm sure that is because I haven't read anything by two of the authors and there was just too much back story for me to get into them. My rating is for Ilona Andrews book only.
Magic Dreams by Ilona Andrews. #4.5 order in Kate Daniels series. This is the 1st novella with Dali and Jim. Lots of entertainment packed into a short novella. I recently reread all of Kate Daniels series and realized there are about three short stories that I have missed. I quickly remedied that. I loved Dali's family and this story give a new light to both Dali and Jim's characters. I also appreciated that Renee Raudman narrated this story, she does wonders for this series. Best if read in order. 2 hrs 56 mins.
Ice Shards by Yasmine Galenorn. #9.5 order in Otherworld series. I gave it a try but I only made it about 10 minutes before giving up. I read part of the first book in this series and didn't finish it then and unfortunately I tried again. But the reasons I didn't like it before were still there and now the story was more work than I was willing to put in, too much back story. 3 hrs 27 mins.
Double Hexed by Allyson James. 2.5 order in the Stormwalker series. Another story already in the middle of the series but I gave it a try anyway, hoping it could be a book that can be read alone. It can but it does mention previous events in the series quite a bit. The story itself was okay, but I don't think I will listen to any more from it. 3 hrs 32 mins.
Blood Debt by Jeanne C. Stein. #6.5 order in the Anna Strong series. Since I haven't read any of the other books in these series, I didn't enjoy it overly. There was just too much back story going on for my taste. This series might be one I would give a shot to later as long as I start it from the beginning. 2 hrs 30 mins.
Narrators are good.
I am a audio book lover turned Audio Book Reviewer since Nov '14. Love it and now started my own review blog featuring all the reviews here!
For having a variety of stories in one collection is great way to enjoy the ride!
Each story was completely different - yet the same genre.
How they brought each character to life. However, disappointed in Jeanne Steins' narration of her story since I am so use to Dina Pearlmans narrated voice. But the story was well read.
if I could have I probably would have while sitting doing my craftworks
Really loved the first story in the collection.
