“All the other stories are wonderful too and I think if you’re just getting into Urban Fantasy, this would be a great book to pick up to sample a whole bunch of authors at once. You’re bound to one an author or series you’ll like as all of these authors are quite masterful.”

SHADOWED SOULS is an anthology packed with Urban Fantasy stories from some amazing authors. I picked this up because of Jim Butcher who has become one of my favorite authors in Urban Fantasy.

His story, COLD CASE, is all about Molly Carpenter. You may know her as Harry’s apprentice but she is now the Winter Lady. Molly is full of spunk and sass. She’s a whole lot of fun to read and the little bit of romance that Butcher throws into this story is quite interesting. Even more interesting is the twist. It makes me more both intrigued and feel sorry for Molly and I’m definitely looking forward to seeing what comes of her.

The other story that I think is worth mentioning is Seanan McGuire’s story. This one was a little bit more different. It’s a little bit more out there and since this is the first thing I’ve read from McGuire, I wasn’t sure what to expected.

This story is about a half-succubus named Elsie. She is kidnapped by some teenagers who want her to help find a missing child. Elsie is a little rough around the edges but she is certainly fun to read about.

But probably the most interesting is Rob Thurman’s story, IMPOSSIBLE MONSTER. This is about Cal Leandros who is quite the psycho character. He’s ruthless and sarcastic. He scares me, but there’s also a lot of fascinating things about him.

All the other stories are wonderful too and I think if you’re just getting into Urban Fantasy, this would be a great book to pick up to sample a whole bunch of authors at once. You’re bound to one an author or series you’ll like as all of these authors are quite masterful.

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!

I’ve read something by almost all of these authors and have enjoyed each of them. I may just have to actually get this anthology.
