4.0 étoiles sur 5 Super nouvelle de Jeaniene Frost ! 26 décembre 2011
Par Elenwë VOIX VINE
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Je n'ai pas lu le livre en entier, la seule histoire m'intéressant étant celle de Jeaniene Frost...

Le nom de la nouvelle de J.F., qui est la troisième du livre, est "One for the Money" et fait partie du monde de la Chasseuse de la Nuit.
On retrouve Cat et Bones chargés de la protection d'une riche héritière visée par des tueurs à gage surnaturels. Et jouer les baby-sitter/gardes du corps d'une jeune fille pourrie gâtée n'est pas vraiment de tout repos.

Si vous êtes fan de Jeaniene Frost et du monde de Cat & Bones, vous serez ravis (mais frustrés par la brièveté de cette nouvelle !). En revanche si vous ne connaissez pas du tout, vous aurez peut-être plus de mal à accrocher, mais ça pourrait vous donner envie de découvrir la série.

Et pour ceux intéressés par les autres nouvelles, je me suis inspirée du commentaire (en le traduisant en partie) d'un autre client Amazon (melindeeloo) qui a présenté chaque nouvelle :

1. « Two Blondes » de Charlaine Harris (une nouvelle sur le monde de Sookie, héroïne de la série « La Communauté du Sud »)
Sookie et Pam se rendent sur un bateau-casino afin d'agrémenter leur travail d'un peu de plaisir.

2. « The Boys Go Fishing » de Sarah Smith
L'exile solitaire d'un vieux super héros grognon est interrompue ' il aspire à la mort, mais peut peut-être encore découvrir comment vivre vraiment...

3. « One for the Money » de Jeaniene Frost
Cat et Bones se retrouvent chargés de la protection d'une héritière humaine prise pour cible par des tueurs à gage surnaturels.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 "Most Excellent" mix of vacation themed shorts 5 août 2010
Par melindeeloo - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Death's Excellent offers a variety of vacation themed shorts. I enjoyed the mix of stories - a few with a touch of romance and some with a touch of horror - and even found a couple of new authors on the way, but I have to say that some of these vacations make finding a new travel agent, or safer still, taking a 'staycation' at home seem like a really good idea.

1. Two Blondes - Charlaine Harris - A Sookie short - Sookie and Pam head off to the riverboat casinos to mix business with some fun - For fans of the books the way that the pair manages to hide in plain sight when the business part of the vacation goes bad is something completely different for Sookie (for fans of the show probably not so much).

2. The Boys Go Fishing - Sarah Smith - A crotchety old superhero's lonely exile is invaded - he longs for death, but may yet discover how to truly live - I really really liked this story, it had some powerful and poignant moments. I'll be keeping out an eye for more by this author.

3. One for the Money - Jeaniene Frost - Night Huntress short - Cat and Bones pull guard duty for a human heiress targeted by supernatural hit men - This is a nice little Night Huntress fix for fans (there's even a few steamy bits)

4. Meanwhile, Far Across the Caspian Sea... - Daniel Stashower - An author takes his job as researcher to a new level.

5. The Innsmouth Nook - A. Lee Martinez - Owners of a bed and breakfast rewrite their business plan to accommodate an unexpected demographic in their clientile.

6. Safe and Sound - Jeff Abbott - An ambitious and less than scrupulous TV reporter milks the investigation into a young man's disappearance for ratings - given the reporter's nature, I thought that the resolution was fitting.

7. Seeing is Believing - L A Banks - After 'seeing' that the cause of several local deaths is a supernatural predator, a young woman heads off to New Orleans to gather what she needs to fight the beasts and there she gains an ally in an unusual young man - a nice little story with appealing leads and a promise of romance.

8. The Perils of Eferjim - Katie MacAlister - A short starring Aisling Grey's demon newfie sidekick Jim - With Aisling on vacation, Jim's off to grab some R&R as well when he gets forced into human form and banished to Abaddon - If you love Jim there's lots of him here and some funny moments, I particularly liked how he dealt with the guards of the hellish demon dimension.

9. Thin Walls - Christopher Golden - A man is on a memorial tour honoring his dead wife, but an eye opening encounter with a seductive woman is what it takes to help him move on - This one was creepy, but since it was horrorish I guess that was the intent.

10. The Heart is Always Right - Lilith Saintcrow - A gargoyle's vacation in the sun is preempted when he discovers that the young woman he's been drawn to is the key to gaining his ultimate dreams if he's willing to pay the price - There is just something about gargoyles which appeals to me.

11. The Demon in the Dunes - Chris Grabenstein - A man remembers a long ago summer vacation from his youth and a ghostly encounter - The ending to this one surprised me.

12. Home from America - Sharan Newman - A man of Irish descent, has a chance to visit the old country when his family gets invited to a family reunion - I didn't particularly like the ending of this one.

13. Pirate Dave's Haunted Amusement Park - Toni L P Kelner - A recently turned werewolf returns to a childhood vacation spot to ponder her future. A visit to a favorite amusement park offers her the chance to pursue the pirate of her teenage fantasies and a chance to make use of her new abilities - Sexy pirates and supernatural creatures? What's not to like.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Supernatural Smorgasbord! Yummy! 5 août 2010
Par Julia A. Andrews - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Love, love, love all things Sookie since I read Charlaine's first novel involving the sassy Louisana waitress a few years ago. Then Alan Ball teams up with Charlaine and HBO to bring my favorite little Lousiana town to life. BAM! It is a Sunday Supe Spectacular with Mr. Ball bringing his own brand of quirkiness to the mix. This book is dedicated to him with good reason.

This collection includes a terrific story about Sookie and Pam out on the town while doing an errand for Eric. Every Eric errand is bound to spiral out of control and this one is no exception. The dialogue is sharp and witty with the storyline delighting the dedicated Sookie fan. Especially when CH makes Sookie and Eric sizzle again.

With the exception of L.A. Banks I had not read anything from the other authors. I must say this book broadened my Urban Fantasy "to read in the future" list as I enjoyed the other stories immensely. As an avid reader I am always on the hunt for a new author/series so this collection was akin to a supernatural smorgasbord.

Thanks to the book editors, Charlaine Harris and Toni L. P. Kelner, for picking such great stories for this urban fantasy anthology. Not a stinker in the bunch!

Bon Temps!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 half and half. 11 août 2010
Par R. Wilson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Charlaine Harris' Sookie short story kinda made me mad. I loved that it was about Pam and Sookie, I like their friendship, but the things Sookie did in this book was NOT sookie at all. So I am pretending like I never read this story.

Jeaniene Frosts short story about Cat and Bones was just what I expected. I love The night huntress and Night huntress world series. It was good but I wanted it to be longer. overall I give it 4 stars. I think I prefer short stories that are not part of series I read. stand alone shorts work better for me. Although sometimes I enjoy reading shorts and finding out they are part of series and then picking up the series and loving them.

The other 5 1st shorts (basically 1st half of book) were terrible. I almost didnt keep reading the book. I did pay a lot of money so I figured I would keep going.

Good thing the second half of the book got better. I think the last 3 stories were my favorite (besides Jeaniene frosts story). I am def. going to look into Toni Kelners books.

I think they were lazy when they were picking authors to go into this book. Do I think this was worth 13 dollars? no. Would I have made the same purchase knowing this.. probably.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A Fun Vacation 18 septembre 2010
Par J. Prather - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I am usually not a fan of short stories. I most always require a book with a bit of length and quite a bit of "meat" to it. Having said that, I found most of the stories in this collection to be quite a nice vacation, and I was introduced to a couple of new authors that I will definitely be following up on. While the theme is paranormal vacations, there was actually quite a bit of variety here. There's a great horror tale by Christopher Golden, and a story that struck me as almost pure fantasy by Katie MacAlister.

I'm a big fan of the Sookie Stackhouse books, so it was good to see her again, although I did not find her story very satisfying. If you're looking to buy this book just for that story, I would suggest that you just check it out from the library instead. If you are a fan of this genre though, this is by all means a worthwhile purchase.

I have never read Jeaniene Frost and really enjoyed her entry. Those characters are incredible, so I'll be looking at reading some more stuff from her. I thought Daniel Stashower's entry, Meanwhile Across the Caspian Sea... was just brilliant. It had a nice Twilight Zone feel and was beautifully written with a lot of wit and humor. He's another author I'll be looking into!

Jeff Abbott does a great job as always with a very well written tale of media gone amok, with some very memorable characters. He's a great storyteller and I would say that his story alone is worth the price of admission. Chris Grabenstein, who I know from his work with juvenile literature, contributes a great story here that brought me back to the 70's with a deliciously ghostly twist. There's nothing like a good American Ghost Story!

All in all, this was a great read. There were lots of hits and just a couple of what I felt were misses. I just wasn't feeling the Leprechaun story by Sharan Newman and I found the story by L A Banks kind of frustrating. I felt like I had gotten dropped into the middle of things with that one. A worthwhile purchase for fans of paranormal fiction with a nice mix of fantasy, mystery, and horror.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Another bummer. 23 août 2010
Par J. Glancy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
"Two Blondes" was a lighthearted story, but considering the lack of substance in the rest of the stories, I wish that it was a little longer to make up for buying the whole book.

I'll just wait until Harris puts together her own collection of stories next time. Too bad I couldn't find another author out of this for recreational reading. Previously I had picked up "Bite" for the same reason; hopeful on picking up another sci-fi world author that I might enjoy. I found myself disappointed. With "Death's Excellent Vacation", the theme was cute. Cute. However, the quality of the other stories was *sorely* lacking. I nearly threw the book across the room after reading "Seeing is Believing"-- last time I checked, the Navajo nation is NOT in Texas. I realize this is fiction, but if you're going to use real cities and geographical landmarks, GOOGLE A MAP. It only takes a minute. If you're too lazy, make up a name. The editors could have caught this, among other things. Reading through this book made me feel as if I was grading English 101 fiction. "Demon in the Dunes" was a letdown; I had thought the author could have chosen something else other than making it a preachy health lesson... I wouldn't have even gotten that far if I had just checked this book out at the library or borrowed it from a friend- after about the 3rd story, I was reading on principle for spending good money on it.

This will be the last time I purchase a multi-authored anthology to get a Sookie Stackhouse short story.
