This holiday, spend quality time with family and loved ones--living and dead . . .

There's no place like home for the horrordays--unless you'd prefer a romantic midnight walk through a ghost-infested graveyard . . . or a haunted house candlelight dinner with the sexy vampire of your dreams. The (black) magical season is here--and whether it's a solstice s#65533;ance gone demonically wrong with the incomparable Kim Harrison, a grossly misshapen Christmas with the remarkable Lynsay Sands, a blood-chilling-and-spilling New Year's with the wonderful Marjorie M. Liu, or a super-powered Thanksgiving with the phenomenal Vicki Pettersson, one thing is for certain: in the able hands of these exceptional dark side explorers, the holidays are going to be deliciously hellish!

Harrison's "Two Ghosts" shows an eighteen year old Rachel, still struggling to overcome the disease that almost killed her as a child and beginning to discover her true power as she strives to garner the support she needs to meet her goal of becoming an Inderland Security runner like her late father. For fans, there is some real insight into what drives Rachel in later books and a better understanding of the Rosewood desease she had. You get to know Perice and I really liked him. I wish I had read this before book 8 of the Hollows For newbies, there is still a great story, where Rachel will have to push past her limits to save two souls, one already dead and one soon to be if she fails.

I also liked the 2nd story in the book Run, Run, Rudolph". This is a follow on to the "Claire Switch Project" (from Dates from Hell which also has a short story on Ivy from the Hollows) and stars Jill who is caught in the same shapeshifter ray that brought both her brother Kyle and her best friend Claire love and trouble. Sand's story is silly at times but is still a fun romance. Jill somehow manages to make all her Christmas wishes starring handsome Nick come true, while shapeshifting to try and avoid an evil scientist who wants to use her as a lab specimen.

These two were my favorites as the third couldnt hold my interest at all, I found it confusing and uninteresting, about halfway through I gave up and never finished it.

From Two Ghosts from Sister Rachel - "gawd I hated the taste of coffee..who could drink this stuff?" - I found this funny as in the Hollows series Rachel lives and breaths for the taste of coffee.
