I'm giving this book 3 generous STARS because I didn't exactly read each story all the way through and it just seemed fair.
Except for the first one, The Majicka by MaryJanice Davidson. This story I completely read and I loved it. It could be because I love MJD and her Undead series, although I did overdose on Queen Betsy and had to back away for awhile, but that's another story. The Majicka was cute and funny as Hell. The main character, Ireland, is sort of a supernatural creature horder. She f

Anthology. Just average to me. Nothing to write home about.

1. The Majicka by MaryJanice Davidson. Funny story about Ireland and her group of misfit non-paying roommates. Micah has come over to teach her majick (that's not my misspell) while she's in the middle of her crisis of the week. Loved the story ****

2. Voodoo Moon by Lori Handeland. FBI agent Duran is sent to Devil's Fork to see if there's a serial killer. She meets the local voodoo store owner who is also a suspect. Within 24 hours they'

“The Majicka”
Life’s a bit crowded for Ireland and her roommates—a fairy, a werewolf, a vampire, and now a zombie…especially when a mysterious man walks through the door. Will there be any room left for love?

I'm not usually a fan of the 'light and quirky' side of paranormal romance. I like it dark and angsty. The fact that I enjoyed this story so much is a testament to MaryJanice Davidson's ability. The fact that I picked up another one of her books because of it is 'off the ch

Four stories written by four different writers. All feature various Otherworld creatures. Three of the stories I liked, one I didn't like at all.

"The Majicka" by Maryjanice Davidson - Ireland lives in an old farmhouse with several supernatural creatures;
A vampire named Ezra, a werewolf named Ownen who had been booted out of his pack, a very tall fairy named Lent and a possessed car named Judith. She decides to protect these unusual houemates but doesn't understand why until Micah arrives on her

Four novellas by four writers of paranormal romances.
"The Majicka" by MaryJane Davidson was an interesting and entertaining retelling of The Gifts of the Magi. It would be nice to see more of these. It was really nicely written with good stories and endearing characters.
"Voodoo Moon" by Lori Handleland was another great suspense story with hunky men and tough women. Edge of your seat suspense, hot sex, and a great story.
"Breath of Magic" by Cheyenne McCray; I just could not get into it.

The one by MaryJanice Davidson was hilarious, as always. The 2nd one was pretty good as well. The 3rd story read like a very bad transcript to a porn movie with a sci fi twist. The 4th one was okay.
Hmm. Apparently I've read this before. I'm giving it 2 stars for being forgettable enough that I ordered it from the library again.
Sexy, fun and good for a short attention span as there is four short stories in this book. I love these multiple author books as it is a really good way to discover new authors.

This book is about Ireland a self-proclaimed do-gooder who has accumulated a number of supernatural roommates: a fairy, a werewolf, a vampire, and a mage spelled into a car and now a zombie, or what Ireland thinks of as a zombie. Unbeknownst to Ireland, she is also a Magicka, an unknowing guardian of Magick. Introduce Micah, a tutor for the new Majicka, a spattering of rogue were

I really enjoyed this paranormal romance anthology. Cheyenne McCray and Lori Handeland's novellas both were peppered with a little urban fantasy which I appreciated.

This is a group of short stories, the first of which is by MaryJanice Davidson. It's entitled The Majika and its incredibly funny. A girl named Ireland has a house that's sort of like a place where people pick up stray pets and let them stay.

In her case, though, the beings aren't pets. There's Lent, a tall fairy; Ezra, a vampire; Owen, a werewolf cast off from the pack, and Judith, whose spirit inhabits Ireland's car. If that wasn't enough, Ireland picks up a new 'stray,” a woman she thinks is

Okay, not really into witches. They’re okay within books about other creatures, but I mainly read this for the Voodoo Moon story. Needless to say I just skimmed the last two, so I’m not really qualified to review them. But I’ll put this in for the first story which I did read.

1)"The Majicka’ by Mary Janice Davidson. 3 Stars. This reads like it should be part of a series, but I can’t find a connection to any other of Ms. Davidson’s books. Maybe she was just trying out an idea. In this story a

"The Majicka"- 4 stars But this was the funniest story I've read in a long time. There was no plot, but it was hysterical. I have no clue what the story was about but I loved it. Just tons of witty banter and the Zombie girl who wasn't a zombie, but a dryad, the Faerie who loved his hot tub, the snooty vampire and more! Too funny.
"Voodoo Moon"- 4 stars A good quick read. I've read some of Lori Handeland's short stories from this series before and I like it, and her style of writing.

I only read the Christine Warren "Any Witch Way She Can," since I'm currently reading that series, so this review is for that one only. I thought the story idea a good one, but the characters were very one-dimensional. I was also confused because this book didn't have any of the characters from the three previous books nor ones that were ever mentioned in any of those--I'm used to that being the case when reading these in between novellas. Also, there was a couple of references made to The Other ...more

No Rest for the Witches (Nightcreature, #7.5) (Magic, #3.5) let me revisit some favorite authors. I need to read more Lori Handeland and Mary Janice Davidson and now I wonder why I haven't read Cheyenne McCray. Christine Warren's contribution was enjoyable, too, and was the reason I read the anthology. I have to admit that in reading McCray's "Breath of Magic", every time her secondary character, grey witch Silver, appeared I blinked. This is the second witch character named Silver that I've enc ...more

Like most short-story collections, the stories in this vary in quality, but this was a pleasant enough diversion for Halloween.

Here's my mini-review for each of the stories:
"The Majicka"- Not super-original, but fun, although the romance portion is a bit rushed.
"Voodoo Moon"- Liked the romance, but the supernatural elements got more and more unrealistic as it went along.
"Breath of Magic"- The weakest story in the collection. The supernatural plot was not involving, and the romance seemed to con

I really enjoyed the Mary Janice Davidson story. In fact, I found myself wishing these characters had more time--in that the entire book had been about them! It felt like an excellent start to a longer work. Sadly, with the way it wrapped up, I really doubt this will ever happen. (Not that it was a horrific ending--just that it had a definite wrap-up.)

The second and third were fine, and I really disliked the last story. It's difficult to enjoy something when the heroine is so unlikable. Really,

I started this book some time ago and tossed it aside as I really did not like what turned out to be only the first story in the book.
When I purchased the book I had no idea it was actually 4 short books in one.
The first story "The Majicka" by Maryjanice Davidson I did not like at all.
The second story "Voodoo Moon" by Lori Handeland was a very good read and in fact I purchased another book by Lore to see how it is.
The third story "Breath of Magic" by Chenenne McCray I did not care for and did no

Hm. I'm the opposite of most here. I really did not like the MaryJanice Davidson story but enjoyed the rest and will probably pick up the other books in the series they are connected to. I nearly stopped reading the book after getting halfway through Davidson's story which is surprising since I've loved all of her other series/etc. To me it just tried too hard and threw in too many characters in an attempt to be quirky/funny but in the end just fell flat. Maybe it would have worked better for me ...more

Mary Janice Davidson: No longer reading this author

Lori Handeland: Very enjoyable story (voodoo), well developed & exciting ... I MUST read more of this author ... somehow ...

Cheyenne McCray: MMMmmm, winged ancient hunky warriors, and a very good story. Like Lori Handeland, I've read a couple short stories by CM and want to read more of her.

Christine Warren: Eh ... quit reading ... if you like MaryJanice Davidson's snarky characters, you'll probably like this
Jackie (Literary Escapism)
Overall, this anthology started off a little slow and clumsy, but by the end, it managed to pull it all together. The Davidson story wasn’t that great, in fact I can’t really remember anything except for the fairy, werewolf, and vampire; the Handeland story was good, but not really memorable in my opinion; the McCray story was great; and the Warren story was fantastic. If you’re unsure about it, I would probably find it at the library.

I really enjoyed MaryJanice Davidson's story in this anthology, and would love to see the characters again in their own book. Although it contained the same "we just met, now let's have sex" as most of her other books, the characters were funny and unique enough that I still liked it.

Lori Handeland's story was quite freaky, Cheyenne McCray's was sexy, and Christine Warren's was really enjoyable.

Overall, a quick way to spend an hour or two!

Generally speaking, the sci-fi part of the romance genre is not one that I read. I don't like vampires and werewolves are just odd. But I do like short stories and this was at the library (aka free) so I picked it up. Not having high expectations balanced out any prejudices I might have had about the overall story themes.
None of these stories made me fall in love with the authors or the series but it was a fun little read.
