Publisher's Summary

In this dark and gritty collection - featuring short stories from Jim Butcher, Seanan McGuire, Kevin J. Anderson, and Rob Thurman - nothing is as simple as black and white, light and dark, good and evil....
Unfortunately, that's exactly what makes it so easy to cross the line.
In number-one New York Times best-selling author Jim Butcher's "Cold Case", Molly Carpenter - Harry Dresden's apprentice-turned-Winter Lady - must collect a tribute from a remote Fae colony and discovers that even if you're a good girl, sometimes you have to be bad.
New York Times best-selling author Seanan McGuire's "Sleepover" finds half-succubus Elsie Harrington kidnapped by a group of desperate teenage boys. Not for anything weird. They just need her to rescue a little girl from the boogeyman. No biggie.
In New York Times best-selling Kevin J. Anderson's "Eye of Newt", Zombie PI Dan Shamble's latest client is a panicky lizard missing an eye who thinks someone wants him dead. But the truth is that someone only wants him for a very special dinner....
And New York Times best-selling author Rob Thurman's infernally heroic Caliban Leandros takes a trip down memory lane as he deals with some overdue - and nightmarish - vengeance involving some quite nasty "Impossible Monsters".
Also includes stories by Tanya Huff, Kat Richardson, Jim C. Hines, Anton Strout, Lucy A. Snyder, Kristine Kathryn Rusch, and Erik Scott de Bie.
Full cast of narrators includes Jon Lindstrom, Sumalee Montano, Mozhan Marno, Karissa Vacker, and Macleod Andrews.

Save the Credit

The Jim Butcher story was great. The rest not so much. Pretty much just a collection of whining and angst. Wish I could get my credit back.

It's an Urban Fantasy Anthology, not Dresden

What did you love best about Shadowed Souls?

My favorite story was Molly's by Jim Butcher, but other stories stood as decent works. Not the best anthology I've ever read, but far from the worst.

Would you be willing to try another book from Jim Butcher - editor and Kerrie L. Hughes - editor ? Why or why not?

Gladly. This is Jim's first foray into editing, and I feel like the theme didn't come out too well. I'd expect future works to be an improvement.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The ending of the first story could be quite heart-wrenching. None of the others really affected me that strongly, though there were a couple laughs.

Any additional comments?

The narration overall was really solid, and each story brought something unique to the table. Don't go into it expecting what isn't there. Anthologies like this aren't for everyone, and you have to know what to expect going in.

Lackluster and not a dresden files novel

First of the stories don't seem to fit the background. In some cases they are impossible in the storyline up to this point.

Even though some ideas are interesting this isn't a dresden files book and shouldn't be sold as such.

In addition the writing is mediocre at best. It actually felt like a chore to listen to these stories at times. It was a real disappointment when compared to all the good books in the series.
