    Prepare to find yourself engrossed in the supernatural, right here in our own world. There are vampires, and werewolves, of course, but those are only the most well-known of the creatures you’ll meet. This cast of characters includes contract demons, Selkies, Valkyries, Fates, and Banshees, among others.What ties those characters, and this anthology together is a place. Nocturnal Embers is a bar catering to supernatural clientele. Its counterpoint, housed in the same building, is called the Nocturnal Flame. In some stories, the bar is as vital a character as any, in others it is mentioned merely in passing. Some characters appear in more than one tale, though most do not.Like any anthology, there will undoubtedly be some stories you prefer to others. However, the overall quality of the writing and storytelling is high. Themes range from action-packed romance, as in Cate Peace’s page-turner “Lured,” to revenge, as in Zack Rewey’s frighteningly good “Hunting Evangeline.”Keep in mind this anthology is in the horror genre, as well as fantasy. So, if you’re going to get squeamish about blood, death, or lust, this probably isn’t the book for you. If you can handle those things, get ready for an exciting read. Dive in, be afraid, have fun!

    Reviewed For The Masquerade Crew:(4.4 stars)Very adeptly placed in the genre of Supernatural Dark Fantasy and rated 16+, I agree wholeheartedly. This book is an Anthology, which if you are unfamiliar to the term means collection of short stories. I personally am more accustomed to devoting myself to one author at a time and getting lost in their creation. It was a nice surprise for me to enjoy this sampling of many talents!What I loved about this book was the common denominator Nocturnal Embers, a nightclub for the vast array of supernatural beings depicted in each tale. This place was simple, yet I felt it added just the right edgy flare, while giving the reader a focal point to connect with as we move from one story to the next each with a fresh set of circumstances and characters. In addition, I thought the brief glimpse into each author just prior to their story was a nice touch.Whether you have an affection for Witches, Shapeshifters, Vampires or Fae you are sure to find something that will tickle your fancy. I was especially fond of "Hunting Evangeline" by Zack Rewey and " Banished" by Jessica Fortunato, though you'll find all the narrations are skillfully written.Comparatively, what I didn't love was being that this was a compilation of so many stories and characters I am left with no one to root for! No one stood out well enough to really love (or hate for that matter) because their time on the page was too brief. In fact the only character's name that I can remember without looking back is Evangeline! Now it is my personal preference to become emotionally involved, you may find that it is more pleasurable to take a glimpse and move on. All in all, the writing styles were creative and at times captivating. I advise keeping your eyes open for more from this talented bunch.

    I think it's awesome, and I'm only one of the writers. Great linear storytelling.

    It's hard to put a star rating on an anthology, so I won't. The premise here is a series of independent short stories tied together by a setting: a supernatural bar, the back room of which contains a portal to multiple planes of existence. I love a few of these authors, but most of them I had never read before, and it was interesting to get a taste of the storytelling of some other Crimson Melodies writers. The Good:The method of storytelling - unrelated individuals whose fates are each shaped by the same common thread - reminds me of the old Amicus films. The diverse stories also touched on diverse mythologies, not sticking to the standard creature set of paranormal fiction. Overall, I found it entertaining.The Bad: Like any anthology, this one contained a range of stories, and I doubt all of them will be to any particular reader's taste. There were some I liked better than others, and some I liked less than others. That's just a quality of anthologies, though.There was also a distinct typo problem - missing words and eggcorns, specifically. Not usually bad enough to jar me out of the story, but enough that I did notice. Miscellaneous: I didn't notice the "16+" tag on the back cover, and intense sexual situations aren't my cup of tea. That's my problem, though, not the book's. As far as sex goes, the incidences in the book seemed at least well-done. In Sum: Interesting and entertaining. I wasn't glued to the pages all the way through or anything, but I did find the reading of it enjoyable.
