"High Stakes" by Chloe Neill is the only story I read in this anthology.

It's a normal day at Cadogan House for Lindsey and Luc until Lindsey receives a message from her Grand Niece. Someone has threatened her. That person wants Lindsey to go back to New York City, the place where she was turned into a vampire in the 1920s. Lindsey cannot figure out who is behind the threats. Everyone from her past is dead. But taking no chances, she leaves Cadogan House and Luc behind to confront her enemy.

This is a very short story and part of Chloe Neill's Chicagoland Vampire series. Luc and Lindsey are two of my favorite characters in the series, but this story really doesn't do them justice. It's short and predictable...a good way to pass the time. My rating: 3.5 Stars.

A great collection of urban fantasy short stories. I like this format as a way to try out new authors. I'm already a fan of Hunter and Butcher and after this book will be looking for Green, Neill, and Price. As long as you know going in you'll just be getting a small sample of each word, I think you'll enjoy it!
