There are the usual characters in this story. Pierce is throughout this story; Al is becoming more likable; and Nick more detestable. There is more of Trent and he is growing on me book by book. Basically this book is about Rachel being shunned. She is finding some work and getting by, but the Coven of Magical Regulation and Ethics is coming after her. She is summoned a few times and is locked in Alcatraz at one point. After escaping she is still being gunned for. With her making allies out of enemies many things happen that change her life even more. At the end of the story she is banged up, but alive. With Trent turning friend, Pierce becoming a love interest, and Nick fleeing for his life, she knows she has more to deal with. She is becoming more self-aware and doesn’t care what others think of her. This answers more questions, but leaves many doors and windows opened for the next book. (less)

Originally I picked up this book because of the Kim Harrison story, and worked myself through the book to get to the Hollows story. There were decent and not so decent stories in this book. There were many different takes on the paranormal world and I may pick up some other authors to try their stories. The Kim Harrison story is about Mia, the banshee, and her part in the Rachel Morgan series makes this a good introduction to the character. As most anthologies there were good and not so good. There seemed to be more good than bad here though. (less)

The problem with this book is that the short story should have been added to the beginning of the book because she assumes too much at the onset of the story. Recalling about a quarter into the book about the short story, I flew through the rest of the book. Having read all her Rachel Morgan books, this book was disappointing. She has a whiny female lead, who can’t adapt to her new life. I understand as a YA it is going to deal with the high school mentality, but the character doesn’t really explain her previous life and refers to it often. It was annoying. The storyline was good, but more depth would have been nice. A quick read, and as long you don’t want a complicated story, you will be fine.(less)

Mercy receives a call about the powerful book that she had to borrow in the previous story. She finds the store boarded up. Samuel needs someone to cover for him and his struggles with his wolf-side. Adam and Mercy have had a stilted relationship and their mate bond is under attack. There is a fae gunning for Mercy and her book, a takeover attempt of Adam, and Samuel’s struggle with his wolf. It is a busy few days, where Mercy loses her home to fire, Adam has to fight, and she must rescue Gabriel. This book is very detailed and moves the storyline along greatly. This is a great addition to the Mercy Thompson series.(less)

I have read the previous one “Big Supernatural Wedding” due to the fact there was another author in the book that wrote a short story about a series I have read. In that book it reintroduced Dresden and Sookie to me. This is not the normal short story book; there are many different paranormal books. I have restarted the Sookie books and will probably read some Dresden as well. This book had so many little stories that introduced different worlds and some of them cut off a little too soon, but it was overall well done. I recommend this book to those that like the true paranormal, not the paranormal romance that focuses on the physical aspects of the relationships. Patricia Briggs writes a short that is in her Alpha/Omega series which is interesting, having met the characters in Hunting Ground. A fast read, but entertaining one.(less)
