So far, I have read the first two stories in the book. The first story is by Charlaine Harris. The second story was written by Nalini Singh. I would like to read the Ilona Andrews series before reading the short story.
Update - I just finished the Ilona Andrews short story from this book Magic Mourns. I have written a review of that short story. Of these 3 stories in this anthology that I have read, Magic Mourns is by far the strongest.
