Hundreds of years ago, in the mountains of Colorado (just close enough to Denver for great shoe shopping), the small town of Mysteria was “accidentally” founded by a random act of demonic kindness. Over time, it has become a veritable magnet for the supernatural—a place where magic has quietly coexisted with the mundane world.

It’s a town like any other town, where the high school’s Fighting Fairies give fans something to cheer about, where everyone knows your name—if not exactly what you are—at the local bar, and where the wishing well actually lives up to its name.

Strange occurrences happen every day, but now the ladies of Mysteria are about to unleash a tempest of seduction that will have tongues wagging for centuries to come…

What a great book by a talented bunch of authors! Werewolves, witches,vamps - what's not to love? One can only hope the tales from Mysteria keep on coming. the only story I didn't like was the Lone Wolf one, it was to confusing to follow but all the others were great!

Welcome to MYSTERIA, a town founded by a group of supernatural rejects after an unexpected random act of kindness by a demon....

Susan Grant opens the anthology with "Mortal in Mysteria" which follows up on Lucifer's punishment of the demon who perpetrated the random act of kindness. The demon, appropriately named Damon, lands naked before Harmony Faithfull, pastor of an empty church in Mysteria. Damon is willing to settle into a mortal lifestyle with Harmony but will Lucifer give up that easily?

"Mortal in Mysteria" is an excellent beginning for the anthology as Susan Grant portrays the town well. Her vivid descriptions of Lucifer's attempts to attack Damon are hilarious. The scene with Annabelle O'Cleary is both humorous and poignant as it demonstrates the resiliency of children, even against flying monkeys!

"Alone Wolf" by MaryJanice Davidson chronicles the story of werewolf Cole Jones' attempt to find his place in this world. Having survived a series of foster homes (some worse than others), Cole finds a home in Mysteria- only to find it inhabited by the prickly ghost, Rae. He meets the love of his life, Char Houtenan, but she has a secret that will limit their time together.

"The Witches of Mysteria and the Dead Who Love Them" by Gena Showalter is about witch Genevieve Tawdry and her obsession with psychic vampire slayer Hunter Knight. Hunter is also attracted to Genevieve but knows that a romantic entanglement with her will lead to his death. Genevieve is willing to try anything, however, and Hunter will have to decide if she is worth dying for.

."Candy Cox and the Big Bad (Were)wolf by P.C. Cast concludes this anthology with the love story of non-magical teacher, Candice Cox, and her former student and werewolf, Justin Woods. Candice wants nothing more than to finish her master's degree so she can escape teaching those horrid high school (team mascot, the Fighting Fairies!) teenagers! Instead, Candice and Justin discover their own brand of magic while finding themselves in the process.
