Fall under the intoxicating spell of their hex appeal…
In the magical world that lies hidden beneath our own, witches and conjurers play deadly games. They know just the right spell to kill a man with one kiss—or raise him back again. And theyre not afraid to exact sweet revenge on those who dare to cross them. But what if youre the unlucky soul who falls victim to a conjurers curse? And if you had the power to cast a magic spell of your own, would you use it?
In this bewitching collection, nine of todays hottest paranormal authors tell all-new, otherworldly tales. Spellbinding stories featuring bigfoot, albino vampires, professional wizards, resurrected boyfriends and even a sex droid from the twenty- third century named Silicon Lily. But as our conjurers are about to discover, its all fun and games until someone gets hexed. And sometimes, even the best spun spells can lead to complete and utter mayhem.

"Heavy hitters serve up sharp, dark, witty urban fantasy in this anthology of nine hex tales, each with a unique twist. Conjurers, vampires, fairies, demons, shape-shifters, even Bigfoot all make an appearance. Ilona Andrews's 'Retribution Clause' packs a storytelling wallop as shape-shifter Adam Talford battles an unholy monster. Jim Butcher's wizard, Harry Dresden, deals with a 'Bigfoot on Campus' with his usual dry, endearing outlook on all things odd. In Rachel Caine's 'Holly's Balm,' witch Holly Caldwell delves into the very grim side of urban fantasy while wondering how long her unusual lover will stay with her. Fans of Elrod's Strange Brew, which included many of the same authors, will find plenty more to enjoy in this strong anthology. (June)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
