"Pucker up for a darkly sweet collection of ghosts, shape shifters, fairies, unicorns, vampires, and demons in tales from today’s biggest writers of the paranormal persuasion"
New York Journal of Books, 8/26/10
"It’s a great pleasure to find works from such an array of writers gathered into one book. Telep has assembled stories that run the gamut from humorous to haunting, scary to thoughtful. Both teenage and adult fantasy readers will find plenty here to savor, while those new to the genre can be assured of a solid introduction to some of the best YA writers at work today."
Justine, Oct/Nov 2010
“Dangerous desire, deceptive lovers and heart-stopping romances are all found on the pages of this book.”
The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"Readers may be drawn to the swoon-worthy kissing factor, but they will also find significant depth, nuance, and vulnerability in these stories."
