3.0 out of 5 stars Three out of four ain't bad, 29 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: On the Prowl (Berkey Book) (Mass Market Paperback)
Other reviews have covered the details of this anthologies, so I won't repeat them. As with any anthology, I bought this because I was interested in one of the authors (Patricia Briggs), not least because her story serves as an intro to the Alpha and Omega books. And, yes, if you are interested in Patricia Briggs, particularly given the favourable write-up in Lynn Viehl's recent book, Dreamveil, this book does give a good intro to her work on the 'fang and furry' challenged.

The stories by Eileen Wilks and Karen Chance are also good. 'Inhuman' by Eileen Wilks is an interesting story because beneath the fantasy content is the very real face of prejudice towards things that are misunderstood. 'Buying Trouble'by Karen Chance is an amusing story with an fantastic twist for the heroine, Claire.

The reason why this anthology drops two stars is the fourth story, 'Mona Lisa Betwinning' by Sunny. This is reminiscent of the 'Anita Blake' and 'Merry Gentry' stories: sex, more sex and even more sex, with the barest semblance of a plot to try to tie them together.

If you want to try some of Patricia Briggs, Eileen Wilks or Karen Chance's work, then it is worth buying this anthology. If you like a good story, don't even bother with the last one.
