I bought this little anthology with my own money so can only blame myself for reading and reviewing it. ;-)
What a wonderful little book of short stories and other funnies. It’s been almost a week since I finished it and still giggle over the Facebook conversations at the end of the book. :-D
This is a compilation of existing work by Katie MacAlister, plus a couple of short stories. Some of it I’d read before (being a fan and owning a lot of her books) but over half was new to me and so sated my desire for a bit of her Otherworld madness.
That and the story ‘Cat got your tongue’ just makes me want to read more of the Dark Ones series so, all in all, I feel this book has done what it set out to do.
And what did it set out to do? Entertain, entice the reader to read more by Ms MacAlister and give you a few good old laugh out loud moment.
Would I recommend this book to others?
Yes I would. And not just to fans of Ms MacAlister. I would recommend it to anyone interested in a little tasting platter for her work if they’ve never read it before. It is a good blend of all her best supernatural series and Jim… what can I say about good old Effrijim? Actually, he often makes me speechless as I just don’t know where to start. So maybe this book is a good way to start? ;-)
Would I buy this book for myself?
Been there, done that, got the t-shirt and have no regrets. Great little eBook and very affordable – another good reason to go and buy it yourself.
In summary: A fantastic mix of short stories and other snippets from the mind of the Talented Ms MacAlister. Definitely something not just for her fans (like me), but for those interested in trying her books out for the first time. I highly recommend!

Can't go wrongReviewed in Canada on 14 February 2017
Love anything with Effrijim enough so that I named my brat cat after him
Warning - very short story & rest are excerptsReviewed in the United States on 29 May 2018
I absolutely love Jim, and really looked forward to a story centered around him, but this was a very short story about Jim getting waylaid but not a lot else. His story only took up 1/3 of what was already a small book, and the other 2/3 of the book is excerpts from other previously released books. I was left very unsatisfied. I would highly recommend all the other Dragon stories from K. McAllister.

I love him he really makes the books with his anticsReviewed in the United States on 20 July 2016
Anything Katie writes I buy!!! Started with her Dragon books in which Jim was in!! I love him he really makes the books with his antics. Sometimes you just need to laugh until your cheeks hurt!! Wish the whole book would of been about him and getting into trouble and Ash coming to his rescue...but...maybe next time!! I want more dragons so Jim can continue being 'Jim".
