Jeaniene Frost is the New York Times, USA Today, and international bestselling author of the Night Huntress series and the Night Huntress World novels. To date, foreign rights for her novels have sold to nineteen different countries. Jeaniene lives in North Carolina with her husband Matthew, who long ago accepted that she rarely cooks and always sleeps in on the weekends. Aside from writing, Jeaniene enjoys reading, poetry, watching movies with her husband, exploring old cemeteries, spelunking and traveling—by car. Airplanes, children, and cookbooks frighten her.
Vicki Pettersson is the New York Times bestselling author of the Sign of the Zodiac novels, a six-book urban fantasy series set in her hometown of Las Vegas. Though she'll always consider that glittering dust bowl home, she now divides her time between Vegas and Dallas, where she's learning to like good Tex-Mex (easy) and the Dallas Cowboys (easier than you'd think).

The narration was fine--but not done with any change of voice or accent. All the men sounded the same, all the females sounded the same. I have been spoiled--especially for the Jeaniene Frost story--I was used to Bones having the Cockney accent. Oh, well, lesson learned. If you like these authors, this is a nice set of stories. I will say the narrator was smooth, and the cadence was good.
Kim Harrison "Leyline Drifter" I bought this anthology specifically for this novella. This short story is influenced from the world in Kim Harrison's Hollows series. It was so nice to see Jenks, Madalina and their kids interact from day-to-day. Jenks, a pixie and third partner to Ivy & Rachel of Vampiric Charms Investigative Agency and Bis, a gargoyle who rents roof-space on top of the agency's church make a dynamic duo, when Jenks is hired by another pixie to investigate the death of one of his kids and also the possession of his daughter by an unknown entity. The novella was a nice creative Hollows teaser and also very interesting, with smooth transitions and lots of excitement. 4.5/5
Vicki Pettersson "Dark Matter" This novella is a prequel from Vicki's Sign of the Zodiac series, before Joanna goes through her transition and becomes an agent of light. J.J. is an agent of light and Solange, an agent of Shadow, both are sworn enemies but destiny has something else in mind for them. J.J. and Solange try to break the notion that evil and good can not coexist and even fall in love. This story had moments of dry parts but it also had a lot of excitement and action. I loved the twist at the end! 4/5
Jocelynn Drake "The Dead, The Damned and the Forgotten" I stopped reading Jocelynn's Dark Days series after book 2, it doesn't bode well when you'd rather the "bad guys a/k/a naturi/fae" win, instead of the heroine. I can't say that this novella made me want to reach out and pick up where I Ieft off from the Dark Days series but I did enjoy this novella nonetheless. Mira, the head vampire of Savannah, GA investigates several gruesome deaths in her area. Someone has been setting vampires on fire during the day while they are "dead asleep". This novella didn't knock my socks off but it was interesting and smoothly done. 3/5
Melissa Marr "Two Lines" I've never read anything from this author but judging her by this novella alone, were she to release an adult novel, I probably wouldn't read it. However, there's just something about this author that makes me want to give her a second chance. Eavan, a glaistig (glaistigs are supernatural beings of the Scottish Highlands, with the upper half of a woman and the lower half of a goat) stalks a flesh peddler; who drugs women, kidnaps them and then sells them to the highest bidder. Now a storyline like this is just twisted enough to get my attention but for some reason, this novella did not. I just wasn't thrilled with this story. To be honest, most of the times I found it confusing. 2.5/5
I thought this anthology was well done. I was excited to get a snippet from Jenks life, I loved seeing how Bones lived before he met Cat and the twist at the end of Vicki's novella was a nice treat.

(Story takes place after White Witch, Black Curse.)
If you're a fan of the Hollows series, you'll definitely want to read this short story. It feels like it's set the groundwork for these characters to appear in the main series (similar to how Pierce was introduced in a SS). While you may enjoy this without reading any of the other books in the series, you'd defiantly enjoy it more if you have. There are several references to things that happen in WWBC that you might not get if you haven't read it yet.
2. Recknoning by Jeaniene Frost
(Prequel to Night Huntress series: Starring Bones)
This can be read this without having to read any of the other books in the Night Huntress series. Not bad, but definitely not as good without Cat in the story.
3. Dark Matters by Vicki Pettersson
(haven't read yet)
4. The Dead, the Damned, and the Forgotten by Jocelynn Drake
Prequel to Nightwalker (Dark Days, Book 1). You can definitely read this without having read any of the other books in the series. After reading this SS, I read the other books in the Dark Days series and thoroughly enjoyed them.
