The Crimson ZA Compendium

The Crimson ZA Compendium of the Paranormal by Robert Cloud, Lee Rush, Richard Savage/Black Velvet Seductions/ebook
This book is a bit long but definitely worth the time it takes to read it. It is written with several short stories that contribute to the overall story. Each one could stand alone and yet when put all together you get a book that flows together very nicely and keeps you reading to the next story. The book starts out with Zachariah and Melanie and these two along with Lilith are the characters that tie all the stories together. Lilith keeps you guessing as to who and what she is and what her motives are. This book has all the elements of a great paranormal romance. You have your usual paranormal characters: vampires, shape-shifters, ghosts, and a dragon but you also have some that are different and unusual. I loved how the characters were brought to life and you feel like you are right there with them throughout the whole book. You also have Virginia who is a ghost that has a great sense of humor and a mischievousness that is a lot of fun and will have you laughing out loud at her antics. The story of Evelyn, Peter and James will bring tears to your eyes with its poignancy. It also has all the elements of a great story with murder, mayhem and magic. Each story is short which makes the book easy to read despite the length. One constant throughout the book, in each story is the love that each of the characters have for each other. Each story has a satisfying ending leading to a super climatic and unexpected ending. I would definitely recommend this book. I give this one 4-1/2 red roses, Larena
And I want to thank Larena for her review. Anne
