With 13 short stories to choose from, featuring established and debut authors alike, you can't go wrong here. Be sure to read all the way to end because tucked right at the back on page 218 is my favourite story, "Road Trip" by Janet Walden-West.
Two kick-ass heroines hunting a mythical creature in the Tennessee wilderness, all while battling their enemies-to-maybe-friends feelings towards each other. Walden-West's writing is sharp and fierce and will have you gripped from beginning to end... and desperately craving more of her snarky characters with their sharp tongues and killer attitudes. An incredible voice, gorgeous descriptions, with rich world-building and a deep knowledge of folklore complete the package.
I highly recommend!
Let me make it clear that I could have dropped this book and moved along to another book but it WAS entertaining and a couple made me really wish there was more story to be had or wonder what happened later. A couple of surprises were the Faith Hunter story which makes me think I need to try to make some time to read her Rogue Mage trilogy which while I knew it existed I had not took the time to find out anything, it looks good. The BIG surprise for me in this collection was the discovery of Quincy Harker by John G. Harkness which resulted in me immediately kicking a book out of my KindleUnlimited queue to place Raising Hell - A Quincy Harker, Demon Hunter Novella in it to read as soon as I have a bit of time (figuring out what was book 1 was a bit of a pain, why do authors not label such books in order??)
The story "Null and Void" by Alex Gideon was one of the better and one of the worst since I was glued to the pages of this violent story and then when I thought it was really getting interesting it was over with a 1000 questions remaining, I have found that if a story has enough interest to make me a bit mad it usually means it was done well. The Amy Bauer story "Gold Mountain" was one of the best in a way because it may have been the only story that had a beginning/middle/end that did not leave you searching for more of this story but left you entertained while reading and satisfied with the ending although there is a bit of a "chicken or the egg" question that requires the reader to just accept it on face value and enjoy the story.
So to keep this review from becoming a novel, the book is worth the money, it kept me reading and enjoying the stories for the majority of the book which is an accomplishment in itself since I tend to dislike short story collections. So grab a copy and enjoy some quick reading for those times you really don't want to get involved in 300 pages of a novel. Know also there are several other good stories that I did not take the time to mention.
