Seventeen original stories about a mall where anything you can imagine is for sale - but who will pay the price?

The stores in Enchantment Place live up to the title, catering to a rather unique clientele ranging from vampires and werecreatures to wizards and witches, elves and unicorns - in short, anyone with shopping needs not likely to be met in the chain stores. Here a...more

Honestly, I feel like a bit of a jerk giving this a higher score than Sixteen, which overall is of higher quality, but it's all about what you expect versus what you get. With Sixteen, I expected something lighthearted, but moving about sixteenth years. What I got was depression. With Enchantment Place, I expected a mediocre anthology about a magic mall with some good and some bad stories and for most of them to be comic. That is what I got.

I will admit I liked the first story by Mary Jo Putney...more

Quite well written collection, and truly i admire this ones editor, she seems to have organized bunch of different authors not only to write on the same theme in larger scale, but to put the storyline in a one place, thus giving us different aspects of it...
A very cute and funny anthology! I wasn't sure what I expected but was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this one!! Highly recommended to anyone who enjoys teen reads (it does take place in a mall after all!)!

Loved this anthology! Actually, I like all the anthologies put together by Denise Little.

A good anthology.

I have a retail job, so a collection of fantasy stories in a setting that I can identify with was nice. Speaking of setting, each story has a shared setting. A mall of magical shops in Chicago called Enchantment place.
A good set of stories, many of which had at least some interconnections (and the others would have benefited from such). The stories were all pretty good, with some fun twists. My inner 8-year-old found "The Poop Thief" amusing and also- sort-of- plausible, though this was not the tone of the book as a whole (but it was a very fun last story!).
I am only on the 3rd short story but this book is fantastic, a mall where the other world shop. Fantastic, the first two stories were great if the book keeps up I will be lending this to everyone I know. Fun and quick, easy read. Did I say fun?
Like most anthologies it was uneven with some stories being much better than others in terms of plot, setting, character and novelty. Overall the collection was interesting and moderately entertaining, but it wasn't anything special.

Fluffy goodness, a series of stories all set (to some extent) in a mall that caters to magical clientele. There were a couple of duds, but largely the stories were fun. I would be very happy to see some of them expanded into novels.
If you're into all the vampire, supernatural books (i.e. Sookie Stackhouse, Twilight) then you'll probably enjoy this bunch of stories by different authors centered around a mall for the supernatural.
Liked the story about the shoe shiner. The rest were just ok. Nothing spectacular.
Meh. Stories that ranged from okay to tedious, and all unmemorable.
