    Reviewed by Me for TeensReadToo.comWhat do you get when five great authors come together to create a paranormal prom anthology In a word greatness Meg Cabot starts off the collection with THE EXTERMINATOR S DAUGHTER When Mary shows up at Swig, an exclusive VIP club in Manhattan, it s not to socialize No, she s on a mission to take out Sebastian Drake and by take out, I mean kill him with a crossbow But when Adam, a fellow student at Saint Eligius, takes his own potshots at the dreaded Sebastian, things get a lot interesting Lauren Myracle, the author of THE CORSAGE, has written what is probably the saddest, and creepiest, story of the bunch All Frankie wants is for her best guy friend, Will, to realize that it s his destiny to ask her to the prom To accomplish that goal, she drags Will and her other best friend, Yun Sun, to visit Madame Zanzibar, a fortune teller She s sure that Madame Z will proclaim that Will is her one true love, and that will be that But the psychic is short on information, but does end up grudgingly handing over to Frankie a dried up old corsage, which she says will grant her three wishes Over the next couple of days, however, Frankie will come to realize that she ll have to make some requests that she never in her wildest dreams would have thought of making MADISON AVERY AND THE DIM REAPER by Kim Harrison is the longest story in the group, and the most involved When Madison ends up at the costume prom with a dud date, she s surprised to find one guy who can pick up the slack Seth isn t like anyone she s ever met before Unfortunately, before too long she ll find out why that is, and the picture it paints isn t pretty There are deaths, white reapers, black reapers, grim reapers, and odd amulets I really liked this story, and would be happy to see of these characters in the future Michele Jaffe s story, KISS AND TELL, was by far my favorite Miranda has a secret Not only is she a student and a part time driver chaeffeur, but she also fights crime in her spare time It turns out Miranda has special abilities that allow her to do things most regular teens can t do like, say, knock over a lamppost just by leaning on it This particular day turns out to be stranger than the norm, though, when she picks up young Sibby Cumean, a strange girl who has an even stranger habit of kissing every boy she can find When weird things start happening, Miranda s day turns into an action adventure movie beyond anything she could have expected I LOVED this story, and I HAVE to read about Miranda and Sibby in the future Yes, Ms Jaffe, that s me begging Last but not least is HELL ON EARTH by Stephenie Meyer This is the story of Sheba, a demon on earth who loves bringing misery to others Her plan is working pretty well, too, because nearly everyone at the prom is having a downright horrible time Everyone, that is, except for Gabe, who seems not just happy but serene By the time Sheba can figure out what s happening, it s too late, and prom just might end up having a happy ending after all PROM NIGHTS FROM HELL is a great paranormal anthology that teens and adults alike will enjoy I highly recommend picking up a copy today

    I bought this book on impulse years ago because it has stories written by some of my favorite authors at that time The book looked interesting enough, and I thought why not give it a try Ok I lied, it was because my 14 year old self was obsessed with Twilight and wanted to read of Stephenie Meyer s work.Here s my review of a book that contains five short stories by famous and up and coming authors when Stephenie Meyer rules the bestseller list drum rolls The Exterminator s Daughter by Meg Cabot The first story is so amazing I was hoping Meg would expand it into a whole new book The story is told in dual POV by Mary, the vampire slayer, and Adam, a boy she knows from school Basically what happens is Adam get caught up in Mary s mission of avenging her mother s death in the hands of the wicked vampires For me, this story is classic Meg Cabot, if you love her other works, definitely give this one a try But I hope you won t be too disappointed when the story ends like I did, the high standard it sets for the other 4 stories nearly ruined the book for me.Rating 5 Ass kicking Stars The Corsage by Lauren Myracle A very interesting and downright creepiest story compared to the others Frankie, accompanied by her two best friends, Will and Yun Sun, visited Madame Zanzibar to have her fortunes told But Frankie s real plan is to hint at the boy she s crushing on Will to ask her to the prom Genius much If she had just straight told him Hey, I really like you, wanna go to the prom with me as friends or winks they won t be in this shitshow in the first place sigh Anyway, after some silly banters with Madame Z, Frankie s got her greedy, slimy hands on a mysterious corsage that is said to grant 3 wishes for the owner Hmm I wonder how this would go 3 Spooky but kinda meh Stars Madison Avery and the Dim Reaper by Kim Harrison I gotta tell ya, five pages into the story, I kinda gave up It was filled with boring monologue and yada, yada, freaking yadas I couldn t even get pass the first chapter Whatevs.1 Zzz Star Kiss and Tell by Michele Jaffe Wow Just wow Probably my favorite after The Exterminator s Daughter Miranda Kiss is a girl with super strength think supergirl and is tragically boyfriend less She reads self help books with the hope of finding a decent guy to fall for her and be her lover Oh, the struggle But when she is suddenly thrust into these action packed series of events, things got pretty interesting I m not going to spoil it much but the twist at the end is really cute I enjoyed reading this and wished it was longer, oh well Rating 5 Super Stars Hell on Earth by Stephenie Meyer This is the most disappointing out of all the stories in this book I m ashamed to say that when I bought the book, my motive was to exclusively read this story by Meyer At the tender age of 14, what with Edward Freaking Cullen and all, she was my idol and I was expecting to be blown away dazzled sparkled by the story How very sadly mistaken I was Honestly, it was downright boring I don t know whether it s because I expected too much, or I was comparing it with the other better ones Anyway, the story is about Sheba, a demon who is so evil her ultimate mission is to make everyone at freaking prom feels miserable as if that is so hard to achieve I guess her power of misery is too much, because even I felt depressed reading this story Rating 1 Deviled Star

    Fui por este libro debido a que una de las autoras es Stephenie Meyer y hay que reconocer que su historia es de lo mejorcito de la selecci n En todo caso el libro no me defraud porque imaginaba de qu iba y acert relatos cortos, con tramas sobrenaturales que giran en torno a bailes de fin de curso y, por ende, la problem tica adicional de con qui n ir , qu me pondr , me invitar el chico que me gusta etc, etc.Si bien los relatos entretienen, tienen el problema inherente de los cuentos o la historia no alcanza a arrancar o su final es demasiado abrupto en este sentido, destaco el relato de Kim Harrison que propone una historia bastante original, que podr a dar para una novela completa, pero se termina ah Lo que si me contrari , exceptuando el caso de los relatos de Meyer y Harrison, fue el estilo narrativo de las dem s autoras mucha frase corta, mucha comilla entre los textos para intercalar reflexiones de los personajes, que finalmente entorpecen la lectura y hacen perder el hilo de la narraci n.En fin, el que sabe lo que esperar se entretendr , sin mayores pretensiones Sin embargo, el que espera un libro de mayor envergadura, claramente quedar muy desilusionado.

    This book is five prom stories by five authors The Exterminator s Daughter by Meg Cabot This story is about a girl who is hunting and trying to kill the vampire that turned her mother The chapters alternate back and forth in the point of view of Mary and Adam.I liked this story right away because it has a character named Sebastian My son s name But, I quickly became frusterated with the amount of times Meg used the word well I m reading along and, well, there s another one I get back into the story when I realize that well, this is super annoying She threw in a few let s face it s and a to be frank for variety, but I counted 29 well s altogether I could have missed a few in the 49 page story.My annoyance aside, I liked the story It was cute Boy meets girl Girl is exterminator Boy wants to help girl exterminate Still, my favorite part is the name Sebastian.The Corsage by Lauren Myracle This story was inspired by The Monkey s Paw by W W Jacobs I think this story is just as creepy.Frankie acquires a corsage that grants her three wishes Her first wish is for the boy she loves to ask her to the prom It felt to me like the first half of the story was too drawn out and the second half wasn t long enough Very creepy Makes you think twice about wishes.Madison Avery and the Dim Reaper by Kim Harrison Okay The first thing I want to say about this story is Where is the ending But, I sort of liked it because it reminded me of the show Dead Like Me.Seventeen year old Madison was taken she died before her time by a black reaper or something I didn t really understand a lot of this story Anyway She her soul takes, from the reaper who killed her, a stone necklace that keeps her solid A white reaper, named Barnabas, and an old man I don t know who or what he is try to help her I don t understand this story I hope she writes about it UPDATE SEE Once Dead, Twice Shy Madison Avery, Book 1 Kiss and Tell by Michele Jaffe The longest story in the book And super fun Pun intended LOL Miranda Kiss is a super powered teen who is still learning the extent and limits of her powers All the while trying to reel in a guy that she likes with cheesy pick up lines from a self help book Funny.Hell on Earth by Stephenie Meyer Sheba is a young, 186 years old low level demon Her job is to cause misery So, that s what she is doing at the prom Causing misery Splitting up happy couples Making girls jealous and boys full of lust At least she triesI liked this story okay, it was just a little slow for me.

    What.The.Hell.EXPECTATION an exciting collection of dark themed YA storiesREALITY a collection of dumbest and most annoying female protagonists ever in the world of YA Don t get me started with Frankie The Corsage and that Madison girl Madison Avery and the Dim Reaper but well get into these characters later The only decent story I find here is the Exterminator s Daughter by Meg Cabot It s the first story on the list because you can t be disappointed and mad right away obviously and since it was Meg Cabot who wrote it, I decided to read it a bad decision, yeah Exterminator s Daughter The story is short and it tells the story of Mary, who hunts down this gorgeous guy named Sebastian Drake Sebastian is gorgeous with golden hair, movie star perfect lips and a pair of unearthly blue eyes but too mad, you cannot date him if you re a Christian and loves to bath in holy water view spoiler very obviously, he s a vampire hide spoiler

    What happens when fairly good YA authors try to write a collection of short stories together 100% chance of Bad books The cover is a big plus though, that rose is gorgeous.And I just get so happy when I manage to track one down it gets my hopes up There are reasons books are hard to find Hell on earth No characterization at all What we know Sheba demon Gabe Christen sen I ll give you this it s indirect still genes , half angel the conclusion Genes drew them together, you know Like in breeding No psychology, no idea, no deeper meaning, no relation to the Prom theme It s like the old story of the depressive couple who first met in a bar, as much meaning as that The Exterminator s daughter And it keeps going I read the Mediator thing and it was fairly good This is words may leave me for a moment of recollection Mary no personality, Lila an idiot, Ted an idiot, Adam clueless Please remind me, why must I read this
