Urban fantasy offers a diverse playground for some extremely powerful stories. Professional writer and editor Kerrie L. Hughes pulled some fantastic tales out of fourteen top writers for this fifth installment of Fiction River. Set in urban lands from modern Portland, to a future Detroit, to a wild Washington, D.C., and ending the tour in London, these top writers take the idea of "Hex" and stretch and twist it into stories with a magickal grip on the imagination."[Fiction River] is one of the best and most exciting publications in the field today. Check out an issue and see why I say that."-Keith West, Adventures Fantastic"Fiction River is off to an auspicious start. It's a worthy heir to the original anthology series of the 60s and 70s. ... It's certainly the top anthology of the year to date."-Amazing Stories on Fiction River: Unnatural Worlds"Editor Dean Wesley Smith has compiled an outstanding volume of time travel stories, no two alike. I highly recommend it."-Adventures Fantastic on Fiction River: Time Streams "A sugary Christmas treat for those who love romance." -Publishers Weekly on Fiction River: Christmas Ghosts"The beloved Victorian Christmas ghost storytelling tradition continues to thrive in modern day, and this multi-genre anthology of short stories is proof. Cuddle up next to a crackling fire with some holiday music playing softly in the background, and lose yourself in eight amazing Christmas stories by a gang of super-talented, cross-genre authors. Not only are they heartwarming, but they incorporate mystery, science fiction, romance and ghosts! A few tend to be more animated than others, but each one is special, and guaranteed to jingle someone's bells."-RT Book Reviews on Fiction River: Christmas Ghosts"In this latest volume of an anthology series from WMG's Fiction River imprint, best-selling authors (Mary Jo Putney and Carole Nelson Douglas) and rising stars (M.L. Buchman, Anthea Lawson, and others) present a wide selection of romantic stories, from Regency to romantic suspense to paranormal, all set during the Christmas season and featuring some form of a ghost. VERDICT This title offers eight original love stories that will give romance readers several satisfying happy endings."-Library Journal on Fiction River: Christmas Ghosts… (more)

Solid anthology. ( )
  tldegray | Sep 21, 2018 |
*This review is only for the InCryptid portion of the anthology at this time.*

I am so happy to have been able to read a short from some of the Cryptids points of view! I've always enjoyed Istas and her relationship with Ryan, so seeing them on their own without Verity was refreshing. I love seeing how Istas thinks and how well her and Ryan get along regardless of the fact that they are two different species. Congrats to McGuire for surprising and delighting me again! ( )
