Immortality (Immortal Witches #4)

This book consists of four novellas. Interlude in Death by J.D. Robb. Kinsman by Susan Krinard. Immortality by Maggie Shayne. Magic Like Heat Across My Skin by Laurell K. Hamilton.
A futuristic adventure thriller. A sci fi space romp. An Urban Fantasy. And Paranormal Romance.
Lieutenant Eve Dallas has been forced to attend the Interplanetary Law Enforcement and Security Conference off planet on the Olympus Resort and she is none to happy about it. A chauvanistic retired police commander has a vendetta against Roarke. “Fathers. The case is lousy with them.” Classic In Death. Really good.
Telepathic Kinsman Jonas wants to find out what really caused the death of his wife. A girl approaches him and asks for his help. Her brother's ship the Eurydice never returned from its trade run to the Nine Worlds. This human ship entered shaauri space without a Kinsman on board. There was a war with humans and the shaauri because human beings minsunderstood the aliens. Kinsman communicate and live with the shaauri. Kori is a telepath too and promises to produce and give Jonas a telepath child if he will help her. This story is pure sci fi and I would be interested in reading more by this author.
Matthew finds a half drowned woman, he rescues her and takes her home. She says her name is Puabi and that she is a Sumerian queen. Puabi looks exactly like Matthew's dead wife. I didn't like this story as well as I liked the first two novellas.
It has been a long time since I have read an Anita Blake book. I used to like her series a lot in the beginning and then I lost interest. This story is from the time frame when I liked Anita Blake. When she only had Richard and Jean Claude to worry about. When things were simpler. This novella sampler comes from Narcissus in Chains. I did like that book.
Four really good novellas. The Maggie Shayne one was my least favorite of the four. 4 stars.
