Reviews for Nocturnal
Good and Bad bits
While I enjoyed Jacquelyn Frank's 'The Phoenix Project' and hope that she expands this plotline and follows it up with further stories as she's left it open to do, I found the other three stories rather lacking.
Kate Douglas's 'Crystal Dreams' was readable enough although I wouldn't be going back for more. Jess Haines 'Spark of Temptation' was OK. I'd be tempted to read her debut novel from the glimpes of it alluded to in this one - if I got it at a bargain price. But, as to the Clare Willis story 'My Soul to Take', hate to say it but I couldn't get beyond the first 20 pages - and I did try. The entire premise just didn't work for me. Sorry, but to each his own.
I'm not a fan of anthologies cos you usually get one favourite author amongst a mix and are sucked into buying the book because of that. It's also a way to discover new authors, I know, but I generally find that I'm liking the one story I bought it for and that's the case here.
However, it was worth the purchase price for the Frank story alone. by Fidelma Carr
