Shannon’s Thoughts:

This is the second book in this anthology theme.  Inside is a collection of short stories that connect fantasy and a little humor.

I think it was a great idea to shoot for a sequel anthology because the first one had a little magic in it’s writing.   Some stories from the original still linger in my brain.  

After reading and enjoying the first anthology, Blood Lite, I expected not just funny stories in fantasy settings but memorable.  Fact is I can only remember one story in Blood Lite II:Overbite and had to do with a guy out with his girlfriend at a diner.  The description of the girlfriend was disgusting and not funny.  The other stories are lost from my memory.  I even had to re-read quite often.

This one missed it’s mark but there is a third installment and...I probably will read it too.
