The majority of the stories are interesting and provide info on characters in the author's series. Some of the short stories have a beginning and end while others seem to give you just the middle. There is a different narrator for each story. As with other anthologies you get great and not so great stories and your opinion just depends on which author drew you to the story. For me, I picked it up for Faith Hunter's story.

What did you love best about Urban Enemies?
I loved the stories from worlds with which I was already familiar. And I did find a few new authors whose series I want to try. However, the stories as generally too short to get oriented to the world if you aren't familiar with it. So I'd recommend to fans, not newbies.

Not very good at all. Forced narration doesn't sound real. The stories are all pretty poor.
They have tried to save money by not using the correct narrators and it does not work. The Faith Hunter story should have been read by Khristine Hvam and as a person who has read and listen to all the Jane Yellowrock novels and short stories it felt unreal. I might have felt differently if I have purchased the paper book or kindle when I could have put mental voices to the stories.
The same is true of the Jim Butcher story Paul Boehmer is not James Marsters.
Only buy this if you are not bothered by who reads the stories
