I am not going to rate this book because as with most anthologies there were a few duds, some good stories, and a couple of fabulous ones. It would not be fair to give this three stars when three of the stories deserved 4-5 stars.

A Secret Kept In Shame by A M. Supinger
The Gods Within by Justin Holly
The Dream House by Precy Larkins
