Synopsis by StoryEdit

"Music Hath Charms" by Tanya Huff.

uses the Greek sirens myth to such good effect.

"Minotaur in Stone" by Marjorie Liu.

unique and really took a different spin on the Greek minotaur myth.

"Demon Lover" by Cheyenne McCray.

uses incubus lore. The theme is of self-sacrifice.

"Equinox" by LA Banks.

Artemis comes to the modern world with her nymphs to punish those who destroyed the environment. The story draws on the myth of Artemis and Acteon, the human she changed into a stag for watching her bathe naked, and shot full of arrows as punishment. In this case, she changed executives of companies that were raping the environment into stags.

"Ride a Dark Horse" by Susan Krinard.

"To Die For" by Keri Arthur.

Two people seek their boss's missing nephew and hunt a very scary, evil killer.

"Curse of the Dragon's Tears" by Heidi Betts

cursed hero and heroine determined to save him with her love/lust.

"Brother's Keeper" by Lilith Saintcrow.

"(Like a) Virgin of the Spring" by Susan Sizemore and Denise Little.

time travelers are part of the King Arthur story. I think if there was less sex and more story, this would have been close to five stars. As it was, more of a 3.5 star story.

"Life is the Teacher" by Carrie Vaughn.

Emma's a fledgling vampire who is going on her first hunt. She faces an impasse she as she confronts her old life, where she doesn't belong anymore, and embarking on a new life as a creature of the night.

"Moonlight Becomes You" by Linda Winstead Jones.

A young woman investigates her neighbor, who she believes to be a vampire.

"Dirty Magic" by Kim Harrison

Mia the Banshee deals with her forbidden love for a young musician. His love is an irresistible lure to a creature who is drawn to and who feeds off the emotions of humans.
