* I received an ARC in exchange for a honest review*

I am starting with my only negative comment and that is this ends in a cliffhanger. The full story is to come out in October, I believe. I normally would subtract a star for this but Ms. King had me so engrossed in the story that I never knew it was going to end the way it did. I can't wait to read the full story.

I am going to give as little of the story away as I can. Nautia and her classmates all have some ki

Super villains superheroes and one bad ass super villain that think she's god I loved the story, I love the storyline you had your action love and determination Quick witty and funny. What does one super villain do when he finds the one person he cannot hurt with his touch and what does one superhero do that is fighting her attraction to him and can they both come together to save each other.

Yeah, I'm one of the contributing authors in this anthology, but I gotta tell you, every story in this anthology is spectacular!

Laura Thalassa starts the ride for us with an action-packed, superhero-super villain story. This comes complete with original hero/villain names and super suits. Marvel needs to hire her for their next hit series--and it might be this one! But along with the action, there's a brewing romance, and one you won't want to miss!

"Cat Love" by Sunniva Dee

I will say I didn’t realise when I started reading Cat Love, it was going to end on a cliffhanger. However, I was pleased to discover that the wait to read the full book wasn’t going to be too long. I enjoyed this first part of Aidan and Ulani’s story. It was an easy read with some elements that kept the story interesting. I enjoyed the story and need to know how it all plays out.

This anthology was totally bad ass! 7 awesome stories to enjoy without reserve!
I’ve read all the stories, and I loved them all, I couldn’t pick a favorite. This reading was so fluid, taking into places, where superhero and villains, whenever they are, with superpowers, or not, risking their lives, fight, conquers, win but find love in the way.
I was captivated and couldn’t put it down. I was so drawn into each stories, so willing to read wh
Book 1

Reaping Angels by Laura Thassala


The Excutioner aka X is the Supervillain who can kill with a touch.

Angel, on the other hand is a Superhero who heals with her touch. They are mortal enemies but X discovers that Angel can bring him what no one else can. They end up working together against a dangerous enemy. Can they go their separate ways if they succeed with their mission?

It's an interesting and fun story with the elements of love, danger action and humour.

This anthology is freaking fantastic!!

"Beneath the Cape" is a wonderful celebration of all types of superheroes from all walks of life. Some of the heroes were very obvious (decked out in superhero garb) and others not so much.

All of the authors in this anthology are strong writers with a proven history of intriguing books populated with great characters. This collection doesn’t disappoint. It’s probably rare to like every story

One of the great things about this anthology is that there's a story for everyone who enjoys romance and superheroes.

In Reaping Angels you have a superhero and villain falling in love amongst kidnappings and threats. It reminded me of the classic comic book superheroes. I liked that.

In Cat Love Aidan was a self controlled man who was falling in love with Ulani, a sexy cat-woman while trying to help her control her superpower. The story was told solely in Aidan's point of view and considering Ai

When I was asked to review Beneath The Cape, I didn't know much about it other than it was an anthology about heroes and villains, of the super kind and it was put together by 8 best selling authors for the sole purpose of celebrating our real life heroes, with the proceeds of the sales being donated to the Wounded Warrior Project. A very worthy cause indeed.

Beneath the Cape is literally one of the best anthologies I've had the pleasure to read and what self-confessed Marvel expert and X-Men enthusiast wouldn't love the chance to read an eclectic and terrifically well written set of books based on heroes, superheroes and sexy evil villains (thank you Tom Hiddleston for making bad looks so good).

What was fantastic about Beneath the Cape is that each and every story is completely remarkable and utterly different, ranging from

Before I started this anthology I was very sceptical about how I would like it. I love movies about super heroes but I was worried I wouldn't like to read about their stories. But I can honestley say that I LOVED this whole anthology.I didn't expect that so I was really the best way! Every short story is different but if I had to rate them all individually I would rate them between 4.5 and 5 stars.

What a fantastic collection of stories benefiting an amazing organization, the Wounded Warrior Project! Even if I wasn't familiar with any of the authors I would have picked this anthology up for that reason alone.

I was lucky enough to receive an arc of this book before it was released, and I have loved everyone of the stories. I was only familiar with a few of the authors at first, D. Nicole King, Cheryl McIntyre, and Sunniva Dee, but now that I've had a chance to read some of the other ones in

This is simply an amazing anthology with a spectacular collection of stories written by some very talented authors. And you know what the best part of all is about this collection? The proceeds benefit the Wounded Warrior Project!

The stories in this anthology center on Superheroes and that is what the real men and women who fight every day are to us – the real heroes. They risk their lives for us – fight for our freedom – our HEROES. But this fight does not come without cost. The men and women

This Anthology was created by 8 authors coming together with the sole purpose of benefiting the Wounded Warrior Project, a charity focused on helping the men and women wounded in service and needing financial support.

So having said that on to my review...

I am not going to write about every individual story in this Anthology, as I think that every author's story that fills up this brilliant medley of Super Heroes and Villains needs to be read just knowing that each one has a very unique plotline,

I adore anthologies. They are a great way to discover new authors. When they also benefit a fantastic cause, well you just can't go wrong. Each story in this anthology is novella length, and they are all quite enjoyable. I read it on the lanai of our vacation rental in Grand Cayman. Perfect summer reading.

One thing I really liked was how different the stories were, and yet they all seemed to mesh together so well. I love a goo

*Five I love this collection stars!*

Wow, what a great concept and wonderful way to help support the Wounded Warrior Project. Who doesn't love a hero? Every story in this book is distinct in it's own way. And some of the stories definitely leave you wanting more. In fact I'm anxious now to see where they are going to go. Some of them were darker, some were magical, some were suspenseful, some were hot and filled with sexual tension and som

Anthologies can be tricky to review, given that there is often one or more stories which the reader will find less enjoyable,for whatever reason. As a result, the review mark given to such collections is, in my case at least, averaged out over the stories.

I am pleased to report that with this collection of stories, there is no weakest link; no filler. This is most definitely an eminently enjoyable romp through each author’s idea of what makes a hero.

I will say that overall I enjoyed the stories. It is interesting to see the shape of hero through the eyes of all these different authors. Some are typical superheroes, some are ordinary people who are capable of accomplishing seemingly ordinary things, but they change someone else’ world. I think this is an amazing idea, and I bought the book because it supports a great cause. This is only available for a short time, so I would suggest highly that you buy this book too.

I loved Reaping Angels by Laura Thalassa! I really like the world she created & am hoping that we'll see more of it in full length novels... Pretty please? She just made such a fun dialogue between the main characters that you can't help but want to know more about their world & how their stories go. Loved the ending & can't wait for more from this talented author. This was a fun read you won't regret buying.

This is a great group of stories from amazing and talented authors. The stories were fun, crazy, sexy, out of the box kind of stories that sucked you in. My only complaint is that most end with a cliffhanger. I HATE cliffhangers, but I'm really looking forward to reading more of these stories. They were creative and I really enjoyed them. I can't wait to see how they end...This is a great book for a great cause! ...more

Each of these stories are completely different. Heroes come in many different shapes and forms and in these stories you get several varieties.
