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.

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.

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.
