Here Be Magic Box Set has eight great stories by authors Rebecca York, Joely Sue Burkhart, Angela Campbell, Shona Husk, Linda Mooney, Shawna Reppert, Veronica Scott, and Cindy Spencer Pape. All of these stories are really original and I couldn't stop reading. They really are captivating and so full of wonder and love I never wanted this anthology to end.
I picked out a couple of my favorites for this review. But all of these stories are great and are must reads for any paranormal lover.
Saved by the Trickster by Shona Husk, I loved the twist on the fight for good and evil and the souls of man. I must one day have more from this universe tricksters are now my favorite good guys!
In this story we have Zander a Celestial Warrior who has fallen. He stole some ambrosia and now he must spend a month as a mortal. This is a test, to see if darkness or light rules Zander's soul now.
I love Zander he is kind, sweet, sexy, and a true warrior at heart. He really fights his inner demons and tries to do the right thing. I loved his spirit.
Lysanna is a trickster- a demi god. She makes people believe in the light and wonder of the world by using her magic. She is getting a bit jaded with people. She has had assistants who steal and lie to her. She really needs someone to make her believe in the good of mankind again.
I liked she is a woman who takes charge. She is not afraid to be in control. But she soon learns sometimes love comes when you lose control and let others into your heart.
This story made me smile and really believe in true love conquering all. Really loved this author's tricksters. I would love to read more about them in the future.
My next pick is Night Gazer by Joely Sue Burkhart. This story has Matilda the 23rd princess of the Tyrant. She is hiding away as a seamstress from her evil family. She is 23 years old and values her independence above all else. She has no real need for claiming the thrown. She just wants to live her life out in peace.
Oyrin is a wizard. He is hiding himself. Mostly because he doesn't want to be used by the royal family like his former teacher had been. He wants to be free too, and has lost all hope till he meets Matilda.
Together these two face danger, love, and powerful enemies to find their happily ever after. I really adored this world. I would love to have a series with the wizards in them, this is really a story to remember.
Over all Here Be Magic is a paranormal lover's dream read. I couldn't stop reading myself and I would love more. I hope these authors get together again to do another boxed set I know I would be in line to read and pick it up.
