A collection of stories by five urban fantasy or supernatural writers, classified in the YA library collection for unknown reasons.  Melissa Marr’s ‘Two Lines’ was different, a woman is fighting to stop turning into a glaistig, while her family are encouraging it, all the while she is hunting down a zombie making bad guy she has the hots for.  Glaistigs swallow the last breathe of mortals or strangle them – preferably during sex.  I really enjoyed Jocelynn Drake’s ‘The Dead, the Damned, and the Forgotten, about a vampire who has to put down uprisings in her territory and figure out the person behind the conspiracies.

Jeaniene Frost’s “Reckoning’ has more of Bones, the vampire bounty hunter.  This is before he met Cat and follows him as he hunts down a pair of undead sadistic killers.  (Yes, she watched a little too much Buffy before creating him but you can never have too much Spike).  The other stories didn’t grasp my attention, but fans of the authors might enjoy them.
