What do you get when you combine a grimoire, a black cat, and a sexy stranger? Nine romance writers sitting round a virtual campfire have joined together to write a Halloween short story treat.

Ivy Mitchell’s life is changed forever after she follows her cat, Karma, into an old house, where she stumbles upon a strange book that not only unleashes her destiny, but attracts a smoking hot, mysterious stranger named Chance with wicked powers of his own. Ivy was born a witch, but an important decision awaits. Make the wrong choice and more than her powers are at risk.

A story in nine parts, each written by a different writer in her own individual style.

What a fun concept!! It was a freebie on Amazon so of course, I had to download it and check it out! 

This is a story told in 9 parts. Each part was written by a different author in the format of a fireside tale. Here we follow Ivy and her cat Karma. She stumbles upon a strange book that not only unleashes her destiny but a stranger by the name of Chance. Ivy was a born witch, but she has an important decision that could determine the fate of all.  

This was fun. You could tell each part was from a different author but it all flowed together nicely. That was the only thing I was worried about, but it worked well. 

Poor Ivy. LOL. She gets tossed into a crazzzzzzy situation. 

The ending was a surprise! Literally had zero ideas what was going to happen. That one twist? Dang.

My only issue was that a few things needed to be fleshed out. I feel like it needed a few extra pages. 

This was fun. I wish I had read it by a campfire...just to add to the feel of it ;) But yes, fun format, fun set of characters, a crazy situation, a nice twist at the end, and a character you like. For sure recommend this! I'll give it 4 stars.

How clever of the authors to do each segment of the story. I do love a little spooky for a campfire read.
