Summary: (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.

This is a compilation of short stories, great for those that can’t invest a lot of time in one book, but would like something good to read. There are 16 short stories ranging from ghosts to vampires and some other supernatural beings. Be prepared for a range of emotions, fun, sadness, mystery and more in a little amount of time.

My best way to refer to this books would be as speed dating with different authors to get a feel of some of their work and get to know whether you would like to read more of their stories.

Here is the list, I won’t go into detail because I feel it will take away from the stories, since they are short ones:

Giovanni's Farewell by Claudia Gray
Scenic Route by Carrie Ryan
Red Run by Kami Garcia
Things About Love by Jackson Pearce
Niederwald by Rachel Vincent
A Mortal Winter King by Melissa Marr
Facing Facts by Kelley Armstrong
Let’s Get This Undead Show on the Road by Sarah Rees Brennan
Bridge by Jeri Smith-Ready
Skin Contact by Kimberly Derting
Leaving by Ally Condie
At the Late Night, Double Feature, Picture Show by Jessica Verday
I.V. League by Margaret Stohl
Gargouille by Mary E. Pearson
The Third Kind by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
Automatic by Rachel Caine

Some of this are connected to previous books and some seem used as introduction to new full length adventures, either way is an easy short break to read.


  1. I really enjoyed Enthralled. There was only one story that I didn't really care for :o]

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. I love short story collections - such a good way to get a taste for new authors I might consider reading.
