A new anthology set with some of my favorite fantasy authors!
Patricia Briggs had Seeing Eye was a decent story- set in the same world as the Mercy Thompson ones, but not with any of the same characters. I liked it though. She should revisit Moira and Tom.
Jim Butcher...always there with a good Harry Dresden tale. Two thumbs up.
Rachel Caine brought us Death Warmed Over. It was oddly moving.
Karen Chance proves that she can always write a good time with Vegas Odds. More fun in her world!
Skipped P.N. Elrod....
Charlaine Harris was disappointing. Didn't really like it at all and had trouble remembering it was set in the Sookie world as the feel of it was so different.
The stories by Faith Hunter and Caitlin Kittredge were good, but I'm not sure I'd buy one of their books on their own.
Jenna Maclaine wrote a really nice story that fits into her series which I have not read, but am going to soon. I'm intrigued

5.0 out of 5 stars A Rare Thing Indeed! 17 July 2011
By ImReallyAnElf VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
For me, this really was a rare thing, an anthology where every single story was excellent: fun and well written, romance and suspense, the book has them all. I loved that most of the stories are written in the first person, and I discovered new authors whom I'm going to follow up. Worth paying double for!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Strange Brew but a good bunch of writers! 30 Jun 2010
By Nikki-ann VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Strange Brew is a collection of urban fantasy short stories written by New York Times bestselling authors such as Charlaine Harris, Jim Butcher, Patricia Briggs and more.

My reason for picking up this book is that I'm a big fan of the author Jim Butcher, especially of his Dresden Files series (the books & the short-lived TV series). Strange Brew contains one of his short stories, "Last Call", featuring Chicago's first (and only) Wizard P.I. Harry Dresden. I thought that buying this book would not only enable me to read this short story, but also discover authors whose stories I'd never read before.

There are 9 stories in this book and these are:

"Seeing Eye" by Patricia Briggs is about a witch called Moira who is visited by a werewolf called Tom who needs her help finding his brother who he believes has been kidnapped. With Moira being a witch and blind, it's not going to be your average investigation!

"Last Call" by Jim Butcher finds investigating wizard Harry Dresden walking into his favourite bar in Chicago only to find Chaos... He only wanted a beer but ends up with a lot more than that!

"Death Warmed Over" by Rachel Caine is about a resurrectionist called Holly who is asked to take on a case that will stretch her to her limits and one she'd rather not take, but when she finds out who she has to resurrect, she has no choice but to take it... She fell in love with him the last time, can she take it this time?

"Vegas Odds" by Karen Chance finds Lia opening the door to a delivery guy, only to find he's actually an assassin and not the only one trying to kill her! All hell breaks loose in her home and Lia has to use her skills to keep herself alive.

"Hegate's Golden Eye" by P.N.

this was a great collection of other worldly stories, with secrets and heartbreak around every corner, a great read, well worth it, I really enjoyed it, a few were a bit of a let down but the majority made up for it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great mix of magic 4 April 2011
By Karen
Format:Paperback
This is a good mix of short stories with a nice smattering of humour. Several of the writers have done short stories from a series as with the Harry Dresden story or have set them in the worlds they have created, as with the Charlaine Harris, who has set hers in the Sookie Stackhouse world but is from the vampires side of things. It is a good read and has certainly got me looking out for some of the other writers now. Its a good mix of magic and supernatural. It has werewolves, witches, vampires and a deity causing mayhem.........what more could you want.
