Mixed Bag

by A customer on 2/6/2011

A collection of novellas by these 4 authors results in a mix bag. Jacquelyn Frank's "The Phoenix Project" was hot and disturbing. Set in a futuristic America, a secret society is kidnapping humans and performing bizarre experiments on them to create a super race. The end result is Morphates humans with vampire tendencies that adopt wolfpack instincts. In a sense, Morphates are like the Sangi from her Drink of Me novel. Kate Douglas, who got second billing, turned in "Crystal Dreams" which was rather lame and confusing. 7-8 foot tall immortal humans (Lemurians...like as in Lemurs?) who had to leave Earth when Atlantis sank have protected Earth and their dimension from demons. He follows a pack of demons to a store that sells spells, crystals, etc by hippies...including the pretty daughter Mari. It lacked any focus to be good. Jess Haines' "Spark of Temptation" is clearly part of a series and although I'd never read it, Haines did a great job introducing her human PI character thrust in the midst of a war with White Hats/Alliance Against Others and the Vampires/Werewolves/Magi. The story was well placed, well developed, and quite good. Clare Willis'"My Soul to Take" told the story of a psychiatrist, Maggie Dillon, facing a patient with a multiple personality disorder so profound, she has no choice but to actually hearken back to her New Orleans' roots and suspect possession. The story could've used another 20 pages but due to the need of promoting Drink of Me for the last 20+ pages, the story was given short shrift; which is unfortunate.
