The story of Spirit of the Wolf by Andrea Stanet deals with the love between Asia and Jesse and the third element that Asia’s friend Nati brings in. It also is about self-discovery.  In Eternal Guard by Tina Smith Farren is caught in between a fight where one is a protector and the other is trying to kill her. Ultimately she falls for one of them, but to what ending? Into the Dark by Laurie Treacy is the story of Holly and how she takes in a wounded warrior and takes care of him. He has a secret though. In The Unspoken Truth by Leah Ryder Lena takes up the case of a ghost and helps solve it. Spinining Scars by Alexia Purdy is the story of the love between an immortal Matthias and a mortal Ruby. But not all is as it seems…

This is a paranormal anthology with five different stories where each story is unique and has something different to offer. My favourite was the In Eternal Guard by Tina Smith. I loved the conflict in the story and that the author did not give it a traditional ending. I also liked the Story Spinning Scars by Alexia Purdy where the love and attraction practically seeps off the pages. I liked Spirit of the Wolf as it deals with the very important factor of life – the path to self-discovery and realization of hopes and dreams of a person.

Exploring the different worlds of werewolves, vampires, ghosts and fae with the different stories – all within a couple of hours, was an interesting experience. There were certain portions that felt a bit rushed. Other than that, this is one interesting book.
