Mortal In Mysteria’ by Susan Grant

Harmony Faithfull has been having a crisis of faith - faith in herself, her calling, her choices and her faith period. All she wants is a sign that she is doing what she needs to do to keep her faith. She was not expecting the sign to turn up naked in her garden. Everyone deserves a second chance even naked demons – right?

Susan Grant writes with a wit and feeling that draws the reader in. ‘Mortal in Mysteria’ has the reader jump onto the bandwagon of someone you would not normally feel friendly towards. Both Harmony and Damon are wonderful characters that I enjoyed getting to know and hope to see again.

 

‘Alone Wolf’ by Mary Janice Davidson

Cole Jones bought a house in Mysteria from the sexy realtor Charlie. Having never really found a place he felt was his home, he had to buy the house in Mysteria. It was a place he never thought he would find, a place that would feel right.  Charlie is just that extra bonus. Or was the house the bonus and Charlie the prize? Only time would tell.

Sigh. ‘Alone Wolf’ is perfect. The idea of finding a place to belong, and someone to love you just as you are, is just right. Ms. Davidson writes with her usual cleverness and sharp wit. Every book of hers I have read makes me want to read more and more. ‘Alone Wolf’ reinforces this with humor and intelligence.

 

‘The Witches of Mysteria and the Dead Who Love Them’ by Gena Showalter

Genieve Tawdry, lovesick witch, has been stalking Hunter Knight for years using every trick that can get her closer to her target with the whole town watching. Hunter keeps pulling away, but tonight she will get close to him. No matter what it takes.

‘The Witches of Mysteria and the Dead Who Love Them’ is a tale about the sturdiness of love and what a person is willing and capable of doing in the pursuit of it. ‘The Witches of Mysteria and the Dead Who Love Them’ is an amusing and delightful story with some dark edges to keep interest peaked.

 

‘Candy Cox and the Big Bad Wolf’ by P. C. Cast

Stuck with an unfortunate moniker, Candy Cox had the added benefit or curse of not being magically susceptible. No one in Mysteria could throw a spell on her or to her. That does not stop her friends from helping her out by throwing magic around her.

‘Candy Cox and the Big Bad Wolf’ is a beautiful tale of friendship being helpful and harmful to a person. The dealing with repercussions of events in the past, present and working towards the future. P.C. Cast adds depth to the classic bad boy tale.

Mysteria is a collection of four tales that are arranged around the town of Mysteria and its residents. From the high school’s Fighting Fairies to the pie shop where the cooking is done by royalty, the tales are engrossing.  All four are captivating and believable in their own ways while mixing together beautifully. From beginning to end, Mysteria is truly enjoyable making you want to drive and find this town to spend the night or forever. I have read stories by all the authors in the past and now I want to go and find their back lists and enjoy some more of their wonderful writing styles.
