My Thoughts: This novella comprises four short stories that interweave to provide various points of view. The one person we do not hear from is Ivy, but there is a short story featuring Jinx and another featuring Forneus, as well as a couple other people involved in Club Nexus. Since they are shorts, and they all address the same general period of time, I can't provide much information without spoiling things, but I really enjoyed this story, especially Forneus' section. Although that was bittersweet, but... well, I can't say more than that. I just felt bad for him.
Fans of the series, you won't want to miss this. Urban Fantasy fans, you need to check out Ivy Granger and this series.

Synopsis: A demon, an Unseelie faerie, and a vampire walk into a bar...
This Ivy Granger ebook special contains short stories set in Club Nexus, the hidden haunt of Harborsmouth's paranormal underworld.
A bargain gone wrong leads a highborn Unseelie faerie to life as an enslaved bartender with a taste for revenge.
Being a highly skilled predator doesn't necessarily put you at the top of the food chain at Club Nexus. A southern vampire with a hankering for blood and wanton violence may have bit off more than he can chew.
The demon attorney we love to hate has his eye on a certain rockabilly human. Too bad she's brought a crossbow loaded with holy water dipped bolts for this night on the town.
Just when Jinx needs a carefree girl's night out with Ivy, a smoking hot demon tries to buy her a drink. She really is the unluckiest human on the planet.
