    Question Many Bloody Returns by Charlaine Harris ET AL

    Yes, I went out and bought this book because it shows Charlaine harris and Kelly Armstrong and Jim Butcher as the authors listed on the book. So I get this book and it is 355 pages with stories written by 13 authors.

    So I sit down excited about this (even though I didn't know it had 13 authors in the 355 pages) and started reading. Just as I started getting into the story..it ended. Frustrating and left hanging like there is a book coming out with this as the first chapter.

    Has anyone else read this book? What did you think? Were you frustrated? or is it just me?
    I smile because I have no idea what is going on.

    Well in my opinion (just my opinion) each story 'feels' like the first chapter in their next book. So it gives me just enough to get interested and then...stops.

    Now the writing is good and I will definately be checking out some of the books by the authors, I just kind of got annoyed and wondered if it was just me?

    In my opinion, it was slightly lacking. I liked the story, but wanted more from it. It was like just a little taste of a bigger story that will probably never come around. As I understand it this story is just a small short for the book and it was supposed to have taken place before Colonel Flood, (I believe that's his name) the pack master of the Shreveport area, died.
