From The wildly popular YA paranormal romance genre should spur sales of this uneven collection featuring 14 tales by both powerhouse and lesser-known authors. Neatly setting up the collection’s premise of foretold events (that may or may not actually come true) is Laini Taylor’s lyrical “Gentlemen Send Phantoms,” featuring three young girls on St. Faith’s Day awaiting the phantom visits of the boys they will one day marry. Diana Peterfreund’s “Burned Bright” is a sparse, horrifying story of a doomsday cult and its youngest seer, the prophet’s daughter. Malinda Lo’s “One True Love” explores the surprising twists of whether or not a princess will be the downfall of her father, the king, as foretold at her birth. The brief but strongly written “Improbable Futures,” by Kami Garcia, delves into the hardscrabble life of modern carnies and fortune-tellers. Deliciously creepy yet hopeful is the tone in Carrie Ryan’s “The Killing Garden.” Richelle Mead’s “Homecoming” will appeal to fans of her Vampire Academy series but likely confuse anyone new to that world. Grades 8-12. --Julie Trevelyan --This text refers to the edition.
