This is quite a diverse collection and although most of these authors are known to me, I did actually discover several that are new, well to me at least. Plus, what really added to my fun was the breadth of supernaturals featured here. Fae, Wizards, succubi, zombies, genies and a whole lot more.
If honest one or two stories are very short but sometimes you just need a quick read. What resonates with me the most though is the darker more painful undertones that several of these stories embrace. Do not despair though as at least one of these shorts held humour; but overall I'd say it made me question just what is good and what is really bad.
I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.
