I really enjoyed this collection of short stories. As someone who has only read a handful of the books that these characters are based on, I can say that this can definitely be read as a standalone if you have not read any other works by this author. Of course you will get more out of this collection if you have read the Women of the Otherworld series, but it is definitely not a prerequisite.
My favourite stories have to be the Clay and Elena ones, I felt that the author was the most connected/invested to this couple, and that seemed to come across in her writing. However I did enjoy all of the stories. I think that short stories can sometimes be a hard sell, and for this author to succeed so splendidly in this endeavor ,really makes me hopeful for the future demand of short stories.
