This book was provided to me for free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Magick Rising by Parker Blue is an anthology of 6 paranormal romance novellas from 6 different authors: P.J. Bishop, Evelyn Vaughn, Karen Fox, Laura Hayden, Jodi Andersen (Jodi Dawson), and Parker Blue. I love anthologies because they give me a range of tastes to choose from — like ordering every dessert on the menu just to have a tantalizing taste of each. Magick Rising is a perfect example of that experience, for me. Each of the novellas are very different, representing unique worlds and characters, and told by very different voices. The authors come from a variety of backgrounds, including Urban Fantasy, Romance, Paranormal, and YA fiction.
My personal favorite stories were Spirits Rising by Evelyn Vaughn, whom I had never read before (Discovering new authors to enjoy — the other reason I LOVE anthologies!) and Wolf Rising by Parker Blue. I also enjoyed Blood Rising by Karen Fox (usually like her stories) and A Shift in Magick by Laura Hayden. Truthfully, I really enjoyed all the stories in this book and am happy to recommend it to anyone looking for a lovely dessert plate! Savor the tantalizing tastes and find a new favorite author!
