Like a great buffet, this anthology gives you the chance to taste a little bit of everything. Short and sweet, these stories did a good job drawing me in, setting the hook, and adding books to my to be read pile. While not every story in this anthology was a winner, there were enough great entries and variety to keep me eager to flip to the next page.
Witches and vampires, werewolves and demons, ENTANGLED canvasses a broad range of time periods and flavors. “Sian’s Solution” shows star-crossed lovers in a dystopian future that pits humans against vampires, while “A Night of Forever” contrasts this with vampire romance in regency England. Both offerings kept my attention and have me keeping my eye out for more by these authors. My favorite story of the anthology was “Breaking Out”, which has me anxiously awaiting a full lenth story (*hint hint*, Publishing gods). Kel’s heart-melting commando boys (who’s teasing, flirting and horseplay made my day), the shadowy organization that held them all prisoner, had my complete attention from page one. This short story is an engrossing dip into their world, and I can’t wait for more.
From a glimpse of Jennifer Estep’s Mythos Academy world mid-series to Misty Evans teaser for the righteous vengeance demon Kali Sweet, ENTANGLED gave me several new series to enjoy. Add to that a bargain price of $2.99, all going straight to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, and this eBook is good for both the heart and the TBR pile.
