The awesome Andrews kicks things off with “Magic Dreams,” which features nearsighted, vegetarian white tigress Dali Harimau as she faces down a deadly evil threatening to destroy her secret crush Jim, the alpha of the cat clan. Second up is multitalented Galenorn’s “Ice Shards,” which focuses on Finnish house sprite Iris Kuusi as she, Camille, Smoky and Rozurial venture back to the Northlands to break a curse and find out the truth about long-ago tragic events.
Next is “Double Hexed” by rising star James, aka Jennifer Ashley, as Stormwalker Janet Begay, her dragon boyfriend Mick and their friends are trapped inside her hotel by a powerful and deadly curse. Rounding out the quartet is “Blood Debt” by the highly talented Stein. Vampire Anna Strong must face the fallout from her decision to kill a treacherous and dangerous witch. And those consequences could be fatal. (BERKLEY, Jun., 336 pp., $7.99)
