Honest Review no spoilers - Netgalley

Every story in KICKING IT features a heroine from several different authors. They kick ass, take names, save lives, and don't wait for thank you(s). I haven't read any books from five of the nine authors, so I was very interested in testing the waters and seeing if I liked the work of said authors. I will not review all of the stories, but I hags picked four of them to give you a look into the books.

1. Shannon K. Butcher - STOLEN GOODS
I was pleasantly surprised because when it started I had no idea what to expect . The heroine is a world class thief and she's good. Her take no shit attitude hides the scarred, half broken woman she really is and the "job" she is asked to do threatens to break her the rest of the way. It takes her back to the "people" who ruined her life and she is none too happy about going back, but she understand the importance of the job. It doesn't hurt that her client brings out feelings she thought long dead. But that scares her more than anything else. I liked this short story way, and the ending had me ready o demand to know more. The world Shannon built was different from what I am use to reading and I can't wait to read more.

2. Chris Marie Green - THE GIRL WITH NO NAME
This was my first rodeo with this author and I have to say, she intrigued the life out of me. The fact that the heroine wakes up in a hospital with no memory of herself or anything else had me a on the edge of my seat, because with these types of stories anything can and will happen. The heroine has some major hurdles to get over with no memory but she get impressions which help her get where she needs to be.

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION’s Vivacious Valkyrie – Marta:
Well this is a fabulous opportunity to sample the collected talents of some of the best authors of urban fantasy around today. This little gem contains short stories by best-selling authors that are a delight to read.
These tales whilst by nature short pack a punch. Each one is filled with madness and mayhem done in a kick ass style by heroines who take girl power to the extreme! A collection of supernatural stories with the women large and in charge!

From witches to demons, from Gods to shoe obsessed vampires this book is chock full of delights. A great way to catch up with some of the established authors published works but also a chance to sample new ones. Most of the authors included are not new to me but I found it an excellent way to try work by one or two that had so far eluded my Kindle. I think what delighted me most was being able to read about characters that usually play a minor part in certain popular series.

If you think the dark is scary then you really need these feisty females on your side! One thing is certain though if you read this you will be thoroughly entertained.

Format: Paperback
Kicking It! is really a wonderful collection of stories. The best part about collections is that it takes you back to some of your favorites and introduces you to new friends.
The stories included in this collection are:

"Forked Tongues" by Rachel Caine
"Stolen Goods" by Shannon K. Butcher
"The Girl with No Name" by Chris Marie Green
"The Devil's Left Boot" by Faith Hunter
"High Stakes" by Chloe Neill
"The Parlor" by Lucienne Driver
"Red Isn't Really My Color" by Christina Henry
"Snakeskin" by Rob Thurman
"Ruby Red" by Kalayna Price

Whether you are continuing the saga or just meeting the characters for the first time, you will definitely enjoy these stories. From the opening story starting with a burning cross on the lawn to the very last word, hang on because these boots are made for kicking butt. There was not a single story that didn't grab ahold and keep the pages turning!

Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy.

KICKING IT offers intriguing glimpses into nine unique urban fantasy worlds, with sassy heroines and magical missions and enough of an adventure that I want to come back for more. Some of these series were familiar, some completely new to me, but all were entertaining and well put together.

Picking favorites in this anthology is like picking the cutest puppy out of a litter. I loved Chris Marie Green’s “The Girl With No Name”, Rachel Cain’s “Forked Tongues” made me wonder why I hadn’t read about Holly and Andrew before, and while I didn’t recognize Rob Thurman’s Griffin and Zeke, the voice of the narrator and the image of Zeke growling and hissing like a fox cub guarantees that I’ll track them down for more. Seeing a Jane Yellowrock story from the supporting character’s end of things was interesting, and in the case of the “The Devil’s Left Boot”, a fascinating look at the family left behind after a misguided villain dies.

Though some of the plots were stronger than others, each story had a compelling narrative voice that made me want to know more. KICKING IT showcases some of Urban Fantasy’s best, proving that in this genre, even supporting characters can kick butt and take names.

Sexual Content: References to sex.
