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.

It's an Urban Fantasy Anthology, not Dresden
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.
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.
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.
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.
