    For me, this was a somewhat uneven collection of short urban fantasy made totally worth reading by a couple of standout stories. The collection as a whole is neatly formatted with a helpful table of contents and minimal proofreading errors. Note that some stories contain violent imagery and occasional coarse language.

The collection as a whole is neatly formatted with a helpful table of contents and minimal proofreading errors. Note that some stories contain violent imagery and occasional coarse language. Aimee Easterling’s “Scapegoat” – 5 stars. This werewolf story was so much fun! I was immediately drawn into the story. The language was vivid, the pacing was good, but the best aspect was the characters. Ms. Easterling has a real gift for creating characters who are memorable, quirky, and likeable. I also appreciated the touches of humor, and the author’s background as a biologist and her experience with farm animals were apparent in how she wrote about the animals in this story. This story ties in with some of the author’s other werewolf books, such as the Wolf Rampant Series, but it stands on its own. Tori Centanni’s “Dead Goblins and Overdue Rent” – 3 stars. This story introduces witch and supernatural PI Dani Warren, who will be featured in the upcoming Brimstone Magic Series. I thought this was ok, but not as compelling as it could have been. I found the scenes where Dani was interacting with other characters somewhat amusing, but the story ended without really resolving anything and left me feeling rather unsatisfied. “Magically Hidden” by Rachel Medhurst – 2 stars. I really disliked the main character in this story. She is shallow and vain and constantly brags about being an Essex witch, but the significance of that is never really made clear. She makes too many references to lusting after her crime-fighting partner, but I didn’t feel any chemistry between them. In fact, I didn’t get much sense of who any of the characters were other than the main character. I didn’t particularly find either the story or the characters interesting and never really cared what happened. “Siloed” by Dale Ivan Smith – 5 stars. Gripping story about a sorceress serving as a guard in a prison for supernatural creatures referred to as “manifestations” (I liked the mythology here). The setting is creepy and the tension steadily builds right up to the exciting climax. The ending was surprisingly touching. This story is complete and stands on its own, but also serves as an introduction to the author’s upcoming urban fantasy series, which I am now looking forward to reading. “Alchemy and Destiny” by Becca Andre – 4 stars. Intriguing story about a hunter who is more than just human and wants to study alchemy in order to break what he perceives as his family curse. This was an interesting, well-paced story and I really liked the main character. This story basically serves as an introduction to The Final Formula Series, and although much remains unresolved at the end of the story, I felt satisfied with the ending and look forward to reading the series. “Dirty Magic” by N.R. Hairston – 3 stars. This story of a planet-hopping telekinetic who provides disappearance and protection services was just ok for me. I never really connected with the main character. Also, this one is quite violent and has some pretty gross imagery if you’re sensitive. “Run Away” by Kat Cotton – 4 stars. This was an engaging story about a girl with special abilities she doesn’t understand who has run away from her home with the circus and is living in fear until she meets someone who can help her control her powers. The story leaves a lot of questions unanswered, but I was immediately drawn into Jayne’s story, cared about her, and really enjoyed watching how her story unfolded. I was a little surprised by the ending, but that just really made me want to continue Jayne’s story in the upcoming book, Smoke, Mirrors and Demons (The Carnival Society Book 1).

    Came for Dale Ivan Smith's Siloed (which is brilliant) and then stayed for all the rest! I got this anthology for one reason only - Dale Ivan Smith. I read and loved his Empowered series and have also enjoyed some of his novellas and short stories. I will read anything Dale writes as the quality of his writing, his fantastic imagination, his strong characters and his great story-telling always pulls me in and transports me to whatever world he wants me to be in.

Dale's story in this anthology, Siloed, is no different and I loved meeting yet another of his feisty heroines. Elizabeth steps off the page fully formed and as usual, Dale has created a unique world with many different species and packed it all into a relatively short story which is full of action. This story is an introduction to his next series and I am excited to see what comes next for Elizabeth. Although Dale was my reason for purchasing, I have read a couple of the other stories so far and plan to finish the rest post haste. I liked Aimee Easterling's Scapegoat very much and will definitely seek out her work. I'm sure the others will be as good and my 'authors to seek out' list will have new additions.

    I was originally given a copy of this book by Aimee Easterling, whose books I love. Scapegoat, her contribution to this one, is about Sienna, who once danced at a strip club at night to finance her college education. This is where she first meets Chase, and where she first finds out about shifters. Fast forward 16 years to when Sienna is working as a wildlife biologist and studying wolves, actual wolves. Part of her job is to investigate reports of wolves killing livestock. When she is called to I was originally given a copy of this book by Aimee Easterling, whose books I love.

When she is called to the home of a rancher who is sure a wolf is killing his goats, she finds herself calling in reinforcements in the form of Chase and Wolf. This story is about Wolf Young when he was well, young. I enjoyed the story and it would make me want to read more about Wolf, except I already have, lol. I also like several of the other stories in the book and plan to read more by some of the authors. This book gives you some good looks into the work of authors that you might not otherwise read.

    I love anthologies! I always find a new author to obsess over. This was no different. I love discovering new worlds and visiting with old familiar friends, even if it was at a time before I knew them. This is a absolutely perfect book, it gives you the ability to read an entire story at one sitting, on the bus, in the sun on the beach, or just do like I did and read the entire thing at once! I wish I could give it a higher number than 5!! So good! Seriously one of the best ever!

    A great anthology of short stories that were a blast to read. I have read a few of the authors before and enjoyed reading the new ones too. They were quick reads that made me laugh and introduced author's characters. And I got to visit old characters extra stories. They were all fantasy based stories so I loved them all. Really enjoyed them. Well worth reading!

    If it is a collection, anthology or box set I am always buying them and hoping that I find new authors to read! This collection was bought because it had books that were part of series that I have read all of the series and worlds for, such as Scapegoat by Aimee Easterling and Magically Hidden by Rachel Medhurst. There was also a few stories that I wanted to read just from this set!

    This is a fun mix of urban fantasy shorts and I enjoyed all of them. Some of the stories are part of existing series by the author, and others are introductions to new series by new-to-me-authors. I enjoyed all of the stories enough to want to know what happens next and have put all of them on my TBR list. This is a collection that all UF fans will love!

    I've read books by two of the authors - and so I knew that I would like those two stories. The other five authors, I hadn't come across before. The stories are neat and give you an insight into the style of each author. The stories are different lengths and so are a great way to spend half an hour here and there.

    I downloaded Street Spells as a free ebook of Urban Fantasy short stories from Amazon. A really good blend of stories--I enjoyed most of them as 5-star reads (hence my rating), with only a story or two dropping to the mid-range. I recommend this anthology of shorts for some great, fast reads

    Most of the stories are pretty good. I think urban fantasy is too dark for my tastes.

    Not a bad anthology. There were 2 stories I ended up skipping but the rest were all pretty solid. The anthology has me thinking to give another shot to 2 series I had abandoned years ago.

    This book is filled with exciting short stories. Each one deals with some kind of magic. They also make you want to read more! Loved it! I have only read from one of these authors before. Aimee Easterling is that author. I love her work and hope to read more about the characters in this book! The others I am newly introduced to. However; I know I will read more from them.
