Rachel Caine (author) Shannon K. Butcher (author) Rob Thurman (author) Faith Hunter (author) Chris Marie Green (author) Chloe Neill (author) Lucienne Diver (author) Kalayna Price (author) Christina Henry (author)

I love anthologies. Really love them. What a great way to learn about new authors, and pick up shorts by authors we love?

In Kicking It I got to enjoy some old favorites, but I also got to read some authors I wasn’t aware of, or whose stories I haven’t had a chance to enjoy. All the stories have footwear as the main theme – and what woman doesn’t love shoes? Well, I normally only wear an ancient pair of crocs, so I should probably say most women love shoes . . . but then, I do like looking at them, so I suppose that counts?

Rachel Caine is first up with Forked Tongues: A Holly and Andrew Story. It starts with one of my favorite opening lines: It wasn’t the first time I’d woken up to a cross burning on my front lawn, but it was definitely not my favorite time, either.

Holly and Andrew don’t exactly have it easy since Resurrection Witches are now verboten, and the testimony of the dead is no longer accepted in court. Given the superstitious and sanctimonious attacks on them, and other resurrection witches, it isn’t surprising when the burning cross leads to the body of a murdered friend.

Shannon K. Butcher is next up with Stolen Goods. Marcus Brighton has a problem. He needs something stolen, something he believes only Simone Solange can steal for him. In order to attract Simone’s attention, his offer must be impressive. Impressive enough to attract the attention of the world’s greatest thief.

Well this is a fabulous opportunity to sample the collected talents of some of the best authors of urban fantasy around today. This little gem contains short stories by best selling authors that are a delight to read. These tales whilst by nature short pack a punch. Each one is filled with madness and mayhem done in a kick ass style by heroines who take girl power to the extreme! A collection of supernatural stories with the women large and in charge! From witches to demons, from Gods to shoe obsessed vampires this book is chock full of delights. A great way to catch up with some of the established authors published works but also a chance to sample new ones. Most of the authors included are not new to me but I found it an excellent way to try work by one or two that had so far eluded my Kindle. I think what delighted me most was being able to read about characters that usually take a back role in some of the popular series . If you think the dark is scary then you really need these feisty females on your side! One thing is certain though if you read this you will be thoroughly entertained.

For an anthology this was brilliant. I bought it as I was waiting particularly on the shorts from Faith Hunter, Chloe Neill and Kalayna Price. I was not disappointed, they were all 3 part of the authors long running series but a the same time stand alone. Very enjoyable and just these 3 made the book worth buying. I did read all the others and enjoyed them too, I might have to buy a few of their books. In particular I enjoyed Christina Henry's short, I might have to start her Madeline Black series. Also a stand out story was Shannon Butcher's. In all a great buy.

I have to disagree with the reviewers who've loved this book.

As it had several of my favourite authors I was happy to pay the highest price I've yet had to pay for a kindle book. I wish I'd saved my money: I found almost every one of the stories to be shallow and unsatisfactory.

Although all are well written, none of them managed to engage me, and I disliked the fact that the endings seemed to be tacked on rather than reaching a decent conclusion. The best of the bunch was Chloe Neill’s Lindsey & Luc (from Cadogan House) mini story, which I did quite enjoy.

Not a total turkey of a book, but a big disappointment when you know how much better several of the authors can do. I wouldn't go looking for more books by any of the writers if I didn't already know how much better some of them can do.

Must read anthology 11 Dec 2013
By Shawnie Nicole - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Honest Review no spoilers - Netgalley

Every story in KICKING IT features a heroine from several different authors. They kick ass, take names, save lives, and don't wait for thank you(s). I haven't read any books from five of the nine authors, so I was very interested in testing the waters and seeing if I liked the work of said authors. I will not review all of the stories, but I hags picked four of them to give you a look into the books.

1. Shannon K. Butcher - STOLEN GOODS
I was pleasantly surprised because when it started I had no idea what to expect . The heroine is a world class thief and she's good. Her take no shit attitude hides the scarred, half broken woman she really is and the "job" she is asked to do threatens to break her the rest of the way. It takes her back to the "people" who ruined her life and she is none too happy about going back, but she understand the importance of the job. It doesn't hurt that her client brings out feelings she thought long dead. But that scares her more than anything else. I liked this short story way, and the ending had me ready o demand to know more. The world Shannon built was different from what I am use to reading and I can't wait to read more.

2. Chris Marie Green - THE GIRL WITH NO NAME
This was my first rodeo with this author and I have to say, she intrigued the life out of me. The fact that the heroine wakes up in a hospital with no memory of herself or anything else had me a on the edge of my seat, because with these types of stories anything can and will happen. The heroine has some major hurdles to get over with no memory but she get impressions which help her get where she needs to be. These series of events lead her back to the Bayou where answers are given and then love us possibly lost.

3. Faith Hunter - THE DEVIL'S LEFT BOOT
This book takes place in Jane Yellowrock's world but doesn't specifically feature her. I love the world Faith has built and Jane is one of my favorite heroine's of all time. Liz and Cia, twin witch's who are her "best friends sisters are the heroines (sorts) in this story. The twins are asked to look into and find a missing mother who isnt known to do anything out of the ordinary. They think its going to be easy-peasy, but nothing in Jane Yellowrock's world is easy, and soon the girls find themselves trapping a wacked-out vampire/witch with a shoe fetish. Putting all the pieces together, Liz and Cia realize that they are going to have to call the one person they aren't ready to deal or confront yet... JANE. I loved this story, because I didn't like how they blamed Jane when she was doing her job, even though it was the witch's who should have been doing said job. Liz and Cia are forced to deal with the truth of it all once she saves their lives.

4. Chloe Neill - HIGH STAKES
I have honestly stopped reading Chloe's CHICAGOLAND VAMPIRE SERIES, but I loved Luc and Lindsey when I was reading the books. They always made me laugh, so I was excited to read their story. The focus is of course on Lindsey and her past is coming back to hit her hard enough to scare her and force her to push the one person who has her back away. Leaving Chicago and heading to New York, she's thinking it will be an easy job, Luc taught her well. But some things aren't what they seem and soon Lindsey is faced with her past in the form of one of her friends, she thought long dead. Death stares her in the eyes and she realizes she messed up with Luc. Luckly... Luc doesnt listen to well. I absolutely loved this, it was good to see Lindsey get her happy ever after.

All in all, this anthology was amazingly good,and even though I didn't like all the stories it was still good to get to look into their respective worlds. The good books out weighted the bad which is why... BOOK PAGES AND DRIPPING INK GIVES KICKING IT 4 1/2 BLACK ROSES.

This is a must read anthology, with heroines that make you laugh, who make you mad, happy, and everything in between.

LITERAL ADDICTION's Review of Kicking It 20 Dec 2013

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION’s Vivacious Valkyrie – Marta:
Well this is a fabulous opportunity to sample the collected talents of some of the best authors of urban fantasy around today. This little gem contains short stories by best-selling authors that are a delight to read.
These tales whilst by nature short pack a punch. Each one is filled with madness and mayhem done in a kick ass style by heroines who take girl power to the extreme! A collection of supernatural stories with the women large and in charge!

From witches to demons, from Gods to shoe obsessed vampires this book is chock full of delights.

Most of the authors included are not new to me but I found it an excellent way to try work by one or two that had so far eluded my Kindle. I think what delighted me most was being able to read about characters that usually play a minor part in certain popular series.

If you think the dark is scary then you really need these feisty females on your side! One thing is certain though if you read this you will be thoroughly entertained.

Anthologies drive me NUTS!!!!!! LOL 15 Dec 2013
By L. Pierce - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I do enjoy short stories. You often get insights into characters that are not important enough in the series to have back stories, but you always wonder about them. My biggest problem with anthologies, is finding NEW authors to read. Quite honestly, that is how i found Faith Hunter and Chloe Neill. I am an avid reader of both authors now.

If you are reading this for a specific author, please remember it's an anthology, not a book written by the one author. Anyone who only reads one story in the book is denying themselves the joy of meeting new characters and authors. I now have 3 new authors whose books I absolutely have to check out....after Christmas ....when I have more time...yeah that's it....... ::::sighs thinking but the book budget being blown all too .......:::::

This book is definitely worth your time if you enjoy reading books about kick butt heroines.....and most with very human flaws...love that about them!

Great Stories! Great authors! 6 Dec 2013
By Melissa Gilbert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Kicking It! is really a wonderful collection of stories. The best part about collections is that it takes you back to some of your favorites and introduces you to new friends.
The stories included in this collection are:

"Forked Tongues" by Rachel Caine
"Stolen Goods" by Shannon K. Butcher
"The Girl with No Name" by Chris Marie Green
"The Devil's Left Boot" by Faith Hunter
"High Stakes" by Chloe Neill
"The Parlor" by Lucienne Driver
"Red Isn't Really My Color" by Christina Henry
"Snakeskin" by Rob Thurman
"Ruby Red" by Kalayna Price

Whether you are continuing the saga or just meeting the characters for the first time, you will definitely enjoy these stories. From the opening story starting with a burning cross on the lawn to the very last word, hang on because these boots are made for kicking butt. There was not a single story that didn't grab ahold and keep the pages turning!

Excellent introduction to a lot of UF authors! 5 Dec 2013
By drey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
If the purpose of anthologies are to introduce you to new authors and get a feel for their work, then Kicking It met that goal. Not that these nine are new-to-me; Faith Hunter is on my must-read list, as is Chloe Neill. But now that list has expanded, and the part of my brain that worries about where I’ll find the time to do ALL the things I want to, is completely freaking out that there are SO MANY MORE books I’m going to have to check out! o.O

Anyway. I won’t play favorites. Each story is unique and well-told. Each features a pair of footwear along with its kick-ass wearer (voluntary or not), and each will leave you wanting more (hey, like me!).
