In this exciting collection, bestselling authors Meg Cabot (How to Be Popular), Kim Harrison (A Fistful of Charms), Michele Jaffe (Bad Kitty), Stephenie Meyer (Twilight), and Lauren Myracle (ttyl) take bad prom nights to a whole new level--a paranormally bad level. Wardrobe malfunctions and two left feet don't hold a candle to discovering your date is the Grim Reaper--and he isn't here to tell you how hot you look. From angels fighting demons to a creepy take on getting what you wish for, these five stories will entertain better than any DJ in a bad tux. No corsage or limo rental necessary. Just good, scary fun.… (mer)

Review in my Wrap Up Vlog

Five very average stories. A couple had very abrupt, non-conclusive endings, which was particularly disappointing in the case of Michele Jaffe's "Kiss and Tell", as that was easily the most interesting of the selection. Meg Cabot's "The Exterminator's Daughter" was very pedestrian, "Madison Avery and the Dim Reaper" by Kim Harrison is apparently a precursor to a new series and FEELS like no more than a teaser and "The Corsage" by Lauren Myracle is a reworking of a traditional tale. Many would pick this up for "Hell on Earth" by Stephenie Meyer, but I can't see Twilight fans being that excited by this offering. The switching POV and never-ending list of characters makes it confusing and not very gripping.

Okay ... for an average rating I gave this novel 3.1 out of 5 stars. This is one of the first anthologies that I had ever read so I did not give this novel a total book review I just get a review for each story. Therefore, below are the ratings that I gave each story within this novel. Check out what my thoughts were for each story and a short teaser from each story click the below link.

-- Ratings --
The Exterminator's Daughter by Meg Cabot :: 3 out of 5 stars
The Corsage by Lauren Myracle :: 1 out of 5 stars
Madison Avery and the Dim Reaper by Kim Harrison :: 4 out of 5 stars
Kiss and Tell by Michele Jaffe :: 4 out of 5 stars
Hell on Earth by Stephenie Meyer :: 3.5 out of 5 stars

Meg Cabot - The Exterminator's Daughter
It's Meg Cabot so it's cute and quirky. It's "The Exterminator" which is kind of like The Slayer so that part is a tad bit lame. There's a girl dumb enough to want to be bitten, written in the way only Meg Cabot could. The story doesn't bring anything new to the genre but it's adorable and a quick read.

Lauren Myracle - The Corsage
Sad. Just so very sad. You really can't wish them back but someone always has to try. It's a good take on an old story, with a nice mixture of fear and sadness at the end.

Kim Harrison - Madison Avery and the Dim Reaper
I couldn't tell what Harrison was trying to do here. This story had the feel of being part of a larger universe, which made me wonder if she is planning something new or if it's just a case of bad writing. I thought from the title that it would be comedy, but it really wasn't. There was an overabundance of Reapers--White, Gray, Black--and it all seemed just too much for this one short story. Like I said, it felt like part of something larger. If I were to have read a book where Madison and Barnabas had an established relationship and universe, then went back and read this as an origin story I'd be pleased, but otherwise it really doesn't stand well on its own.

Michele Jaffe - Kiss and Tell
Chick with superpowers. Check. Cumean Sibyl to be. Check. Twists I didn't see coming. Check. I liked this. I'd be happy to read more in this universe, especially about Sibby.

Stephenie Meyer - Hell on Earth
Mother of god, this was terrible! So Sheba is a demon and Gabriel Michael Christensen (I know) is the offspring of a human and an angel and once a demon discovers love with an angel her internal flame goes out and she is trapped. Or something. It's possible this story ended abruptly because I have an electronic copy, it's also possible that's just how SMeyer ended it. If you read this book take my advice and close it before you get to this story. You'll thank me. ( )

Meg Cabot, "The Exterminator's Daughter." Mary is determined to get revenge on Dracula's son for Turning her mother and seducing her best friend. Her best chance to stake him? Prom, of course. Shallow but cute.

Lauren Myracle, "The Corsage." A prom-centric version of "The Monkey's Paw." Nothing new, but not terrible.

Kim Harrison, "Madison Avery and the Dim Reaper." Madison is killed on prom night, but as the Reapers argue over her body, she escapes and tries to live like a human again. Cool set-up, but it ends abruptly--it's clearly the start of a much longer tale, not a short story.

Michelle Jaffe, "Kiss and Tell." Miranda has super powers, a blank period of her memory, and a guilt complex. She moonlights as a chauffeur; one day, a client gets her embroiled in a huge conspiracy. I liked Miranda, who is both very capable and quite clever, and I really enjoyed her banter-y friendship with Sibby.

Stephenie Meyer, "Hell on Earth." A minor demon tries to create havoc at the prom, but is thwarted by a blond, blue-eyed boy of perfect goodness named, I kid you not, Gabriel Michael Christensen. Told through the demon's eyes, who thinks things like, "No--not that! Not happiness!

If she was already feeling happy, then better things couldn't be too far behind. Was there no way to avoid the horrible wonder of love?"
