In Andrews' "Magic Dreams," four shapeshifters are missing and werecat alpha Jim is mysteriously suffering from amnesia. So awkward weretiger Dali Harimau sets out to not only find a cure for what is slowly killing Jim, but discover what has been causing the trouble -- and uncovers a secret horror that she cannot possibly defeat except with her brains.
Galenorn's "Ice Shards" focuses on Iris Kuusi, a Finnish house sprite/ex-priestess of some ice goddess. Long ago, Iris was accused of killing her lover and binding his spirit to a shadow, so she was stripped of her powers and her fertility. Now she's returning to the scene of the crime, hoping to find out if she actually DID kill him -- and to either accept punishment or be free to marry her fiance.
Then comes James' "Double Hexed," in which Stormwalker Janet Begay and her buddies find themselves stuck in a hotel which has apparently been hit with a megahex -- faucets running blood, electrical failures, and even the loss of Coyote's magic. And finally there's Stein's "Blood Debt," in which vampire bounty hunter Anna Strong is called upon to kill an evil witch, but ends up in over her head.

"Blood Debt" from Jeanne C. Stein, was entertaining. I did look up the series this novella belongs to, however it has not made it the top of my list. I found the story was good, but certainly not my favourite story in this book.
"Magic Dreams" from Ilona Andrews, is the reason why I purchased this anthology. I've been reading the Kate Daniels series written by Ilona Andrews, and this novella follows 2 of the characters (Dali and Jim). I enjoyed this story, but my opinion is biased as I enjoy the main series that this story is attached to.
"Ice Shards" by Yasmine Galenorn, would probably have been more enjoyable if I followed the series this story came from. The story itself was good once I got through it, but I found it took me a long time to read becuase I wasn't really interesting.
Regardless of the stories in this book, it's worth it if you are interested in reading Allyson James. Just by her one short story, I am looking forward to reading more of her books.
I thought the other stories in this anthology were mediocre at best, but I'd have bought this book, if the rest had been blank pages.
