Week 45 Review: Enthralled

From Goodreads:
A journey may take hundreds of miles, or it may cover the distance between duty and desire.

Sixteen of today’s hottest writers of paranormal tales weave stories on a common theme of journeying. Authors such as Kelley Armstrong, Rachel Caine, and Melissa Marr return to the beloved worlds of their bestselling series, while others, like Claudia Gray, Kami Garcia, and Margaret Stohl, create new land-scapes and characters. But whether they’re writing about vampires, faeries, angels, or other magical beings, each author explores the strength and resilience of the human heart.

Suspenseful, funny, or romantic, the stories in Enthralled will leave you moved.

My Review:
I am so glad that I read this anthology! I loved all these stories, so much, I mean, all of these authors, are authors whose books that I've enjoyed! And some of these stories were part of series that I'd read before, and others were stand alones, but I'd love for them to be series!

The three main stories from series that I've read, are Niederwald by Rachel Vincent, A Mortal Winter King by Melissa Marr, and Facing Facts by Kelley Armstrong, from their respective series. It was so great for these looks from a bit outside the bounds of the series!

And the majority of them, they were, as far as I could tell, stand alones, and honestly, I would really enjoy having them get full length series, or at least more short stories (like the Sarah Rees Brennan one) so that we got more time with them!

These stories were just diverse, a great selection of YA, and again, illustrates why I love YA, because you can have so much, or so little, but it can be so good, either way, if written well! And all of these authors are spectacular at their jobs!

It was a pleasure to read this anthology, and I need to read more of these authors books!
