Synopsis:

A journey may take hundreds of miles, or it may cover the distance between duty and desire.

Sixteen of today’s hottest writers of paranormal tales weave stories on a common theme of journeying. Authors such as Kelley Armstrong, Rachel Caine, and Melissa Marr return to the beloved worlds of their bestselling series, while others, like Claudia Gray, Kami Garcia, and Margaret Stohl, create new land-scapes and characters. But whether they’re writing about vampires, faeries, angels, or other magical beings, each author explores the strength and resilience of the human heart.


Suspenseful, funny, or romantic, the stories in Enthralled will leave you moved.

My rating: ★★★★☆

There were many many stories, but I am just going to mention a few of my favorites...

Scenic Route by Carrie Ryan: sisters Margie and Sally hide out from so called "monsters," until stranger comes into their lives. I really liked this one, and now I'm kinda wanting to read The Forest of Hands and Teeth.

Red Run by Kami Garcia: Edie is out to kill the ghost who killed her brother?? You can kill ghosts? What? Anyway, I LOVE ghost stories, and this one was awesome! Had a twisty ending ending that I loved!!

Niederwald by Rachel Vincent: Sabine and Emma are on road trip for this school thing. Sabine stops to see a Seer... she wants to know about her possible future with Nash. But what she find is big trouble, Emma being a human...and them being surrounded by harpies. I love the Soul Screamers, so of course this one is one of my faves!

Facing Facts by Kelley Armstrong: Tori is told about this big family secret. She freaks out, and Chloe goes out to get her. Of course, there is a trap set and Chloe finds herself in trouble. Whoooo! More Darkest Powers stuff! I love this world and the fact that Chloe and her friends keep popping up every so often! [See also: The Summoning (#1) | The Awakening (#2) | The Reckoning (#3)]

Skin Contact by Kimberly Derting: This one I thought was awfully depressing, but I still liked it. Very insightful to the mysterious Rafe. [See also: The Body Finder (#1) | Desires of the Dead (#2)]

At the Late Night, Double Feature, Picture Show by Jessica Verday: LOVED this one!!! it's one of the best ones I read in the entire book! So Jane's family hunts down supernatural creatures. And on this particular night, Jane find herself quite busy with cannibal Girl Scouts, drag vampires, demon with mismatched body parts, and a super cute guy. It was SO funny! From the 1st sentence I knew I was going to like it!

There were some others stories that just left me, "What the hell was that??" And others I didn't really like. But overall it was a really good read, if not quite lengthy.
