Now this is more like it... these leading ladies really do 'kick' it. Most of these stories are connected to long running series, and since some of those series are complete, it was fun to get an encore from favorite characters I haven't seen in awhile. And while most of these popular urban fantasy authors take us to their established worlds, there are a few who give us glimpses of new ones - and there are a few of these worlds that I really hope I get to visit again.

Shiny by Rachel Caine ~~ A long drive to a picnic at the beach with her djinn lover David turns into a wild ride for Joanne ~~ I love David and was happy to get another chance to see him and Joanne one more time, since Caine's wrapped up her Weather Wardens.

In Vino Veritas by Karen Chance ~~ When dhampire Dorina comes up against a vampire gang, a very unusual duel is her only hope of surviving. ~~ This Dorina Basarab short had some funny moments, can't wait for the next full length Dorina book.

Hunt by Rachel Vincent ~~ When faced with real monsters, werecat Abby finds she's a victim no longer ~~ It was hard not to get depressed by the events which help Abby to find her inner strength in this Werecats connected short.

Monsters by Lilith Saintcrow ~~ Having lost her "family" to hunters, Eleni is out for vengeance ~~ Great world building in this short, I'd like to read more about these vamps - on her site Saintcrow says she may write more of Eleni and Tarquin.

Vampires Prefer Blondes by P N Elrod ~~ Blondes have 'gotta' stick together, and Bobbi's intimate knowledge of vamps is going to come in handy. ~~ Vampire Files connected short, I don't follow the series but I think the leading lady is vampire PI Jack's girlfriend.

Some of these authors are old favorites of mine, while others are new introductions. Altogether this is a great introduction to a wide variety of paranormal and fantasy stories.

Shiny by Rachel Caine introduces a not-so-rogue djinn to our favorite weather warden and her djinn-boss lover, not to mention a fast car, a diamond bikini and a car chase.

In Vino Veritas by Karen Chase dhampir Dory finds herself up against the Chinese vampire mafia, trying to drink their boss under the table until back up arrives.

In Hunt by Rachel Vincent a werecat finds her camping trip turning into a rescue mission, first for a friend than for herself. I'm not a fan of Vincent's writing and I found the actions of everyone involved a little silly but it was cute and not a bad read.

Monsters by Lilith Saintcrow follows a vampire whose self-appointed role has been to collect and freeze in time human masterpieces in the form of vampires. With her charges brutally killed she tracks down their murderers one by one only to learn a horrible truth. I love driven, hurting characters and she exhibits her skills in this story.

In Vampires Prefer Blondes, P.N. Elrod's vampire P.I. is only mentioned as we follow his very human girlfriend. She proves you don't have to be supernatural to get the job done, as she battles a conniving vampire over an innocent girl.

In Nine-Tenths of the Law, Jenna Black's exorcist and demon-king host main character isn't sure who's the good guys as she works to find and protect and illegally-possessed girl. Jenna Black's S&M themes in her books finally turned me off but none of that in this short story!

Great collection of short stories that run the gamut from a damphir, to a mage, to a vampire, to a vigilante, to a victim of circumstance to etc etc etc. Solid collection with a couple of stories that fall a little flat but that's to be expected from any collection. Unfortunately not everything is going to end up as a 5. A highly recommended read. Even if you don't know any of these authors you're going to love majority of these stories and possibly end up with a few favorite authors to keep track of later on. Although Karen Chance's story was by far my favorite.

I didn't love all of the stories in this book, but all of the stories were high quality and well written, in my opinion. I discovered a couple of urban fantasy writers I hadn't heard of before. I have since read books by those authors and am thrilled to have new urban fantasy series that I enjoy.

Rollicking adventures, snarky banter, paranormal meets politics, heart pounding thriller, and a grief fueled hunger for vengeance are but a few of the stories in this brilliant collection. If strong heroines, great adventures and stories that suck you in are your thing, then this anthology is for you!

As indicated by the title, Chicks Kick Butt is an anthology featuring heroines who might not mind being referred to as damsels but who would certainly take offense to the name if paired with the words "in distress" and the implications that accompany such a label. Though these women often find themselves in no small amount of trouble, they prefer to fight their own battles with sharp minds, sharp weapons, and sharp figurative and literal claws. Majority of the stories in this action-packed collection are highly entertaining, our heroines for the most part reaching through the pages, curling their fists in the collar of our shirts and yanking us into their world where they may temporarily go down fighting but always emerge on top - possibly bruised, most likely bloody, but also irrefutably kick-ass.

PERSONAL FAVORITES
Hunt by Rachel Vincent
In Ms. Vincent's addition to this anthology we are thrust in the brutal and gritty world of her Shifters series, accompanying main heroine Faythe's cousin Abby on a camping trip gone horrifically awry. Even those unfamiliar with the six-book series will be able to connect to this story, one of Ms. Vincent's many gifts being her ability to deny us the opportunity to remain detached, instead forcing us to shore up our courage and join the fight alongside characters who we instantly let into our hearts whether we've met them before or are introduced to them here for the first time. Abby's tale is dark and violent, but as always, Ms. Vincent gives us a young woman with unfathomable strength and resilience, and we draw on her many positive attributes to lead us through the pain and death of her world.

In Vino Veritas by Karen Chance
