    A wonderful collection of intros and prequels to some great fantasy tales by equally amazing authors. -Queen of the flightless dragons by Martha Carr A magical tale that explains how this delightful MC came upon what she thought to be just a little gecko. A great snapshot into the imagination of this author! -Not all is what it seems by Michael Anderle Finding ones roots in the most unlikely places.

A great snapshot into the imagination of this author! -Not all is what it seems by Michael Anderle Finding ones roots in the most unlikely places. This tale truly has the most comical bar fight scene I’ve read in a bit. I don’t think it was written to be humorous, but I just found the half ogres delighting in their glorious food find amusing. -Fairy godmother by Sarah noffke Well shucks, this tale really got interesting. A failing college, a last chance effort to redeem oneself, a totally cool but strange squirrel. And then poof. I really want more! -Terror eyes by Nasir noir A truly unique experience between brothers and adopting a furball of destruction. -Glass wing by Kimbra swain Artifacts and butterflies and a most unique emporium. -Dream vacation by Charlie case Very much in the spirit of the Pirates of the Caribbean, this band if characters leave for what they believe to be a vacation, but not everything ( or everyone) is as it seems. Cass especially! Dwarves, dragons, unusual pirates, yes, quite the colorful cast! -The arena by Remy Vance and Matthew Hermann Battle royale of the most unusual and unique characters, not to mention Simon and Garfunkel like you would never imagine! A great glimpse into the GoneGod world. -Enter the demon by John p Logsdon and Noah K Sturdervant Who doesn’t love a snarky demon? In order to return to his beloved wife, a demon has got to do what a demon does...right? All my reviews are always voluntarily written.

    Great intro to amazing worlds Anthologies like this one are a good way of finding new authors to read. I usually find one or two good options to follow and read, now I'm having trouble finding one or two not to read more about. All the characters were interesting and the settings good. Now, my only problem is that some of the stories felt incomplete, ending in cliffhangers which I feel is a cheap way of trying to force you to read more.

Now, my only problem is that some of the stories felt incomplete, ending in cliffhangers which I feel is a cheap way of trying to force you to read more. Most stories read more like prologues for books that short stories, like in Queen of the flightless dragon they set up the story and cut in the most interesting part, leaving you with a big cliffhanger. They leave you wanting to know what happens next, just to turn the page and find that nothing is there. I want to read more, and I will go and look for the book once it's out, but it's a cheap trick and I don't appreciate it. Others are borderline, like Fairy Godmother College that do have a closing, but still leave you wanting more. It's not exactly a cliffhanger, but it's open ended enough to make you curious about what's next. It's better and I appreciate it more. But the winners for me are Glasswing and Enter the demon. Those can totally be read as standalones, no problem, but still, the characters and the worlds they introduce you to are so good that you want to read more about them. And there is no pressure to it, it feels more like a choice you make and not something you were tricked into. Overall, the book has great stories, it could have been a solid five, but the fact that so many of the authors played the cliffhanger card leaves it short.

    Excellent short stories. Very different but excellent stories. Awesome urban fantasy stories. Kimbra’s Glasswing is funny, magical and even has a normal. It’s fantastic.

I am absolutely wanting more of the story! Each story was fun. All the authors spun interesting fantasy stories. Extremely glad I picked this gem to read.

    kindle unlimited review based ONLY on anderle story, though could have been bit longer, and Noah's, and just a bit for ramy bc I like good gone gods but it took been so long and that series was so piece-meal with different anthologies and wherever it was stuck, more than difficult to keep up with/notice, the rest made no sense for me for different reasons, from the writing to how it was written to subject matter, etc. kindle unlimited review based ONLY on anderle story, though could have been bit longer, and Noah's, and just a bit for ramy bc I like good gone gods but it took been so long and that series was so piece-meal with different anthologies and wherever it was stuck, more than difficult to keep up with/notice, the rest made no sense for me for different reasons, from the writing to how it was written to subject matter, etc.

    Lots of original ideas A lot of authors i didn't know about are included in this anthology which is what is great about this story format, several of whom i will be following up. The only real issue is that a few stories left you on a cliff and didn’t provide a link to how the story resolved. Hey authors, please remember the short story form means you should provide a complete story.

    Wonderful 2020 sucks, the world is on fire, friends are sick and to survive I read. I had just finished a dark paranormal book that I thought fit my mood. When I finished I realized this anthology was next on the list. It is Wonderful! It is silly and fun and irreverent. I laughed out loud, and I really needed that. You will love this anthology, it is great escapism and helps you to remember there still is a silly, fun, happy side to life.

    This Anthology does not disappoint! Glad to read more of Martha and Michael's work. Intrigued and pleased to be introduced to authors I haven't read before! I'm finding it difficult to choose which story I want to continue with first. I may begin several allowing me to savor the reads for a longer period as I engage with the minds of these marvelous authors! This Anthology does not disappoint!

    A shared universes collection Thoroughly enjoyable tales with many characters (maybe all?) from a variety of different story arcs. I freely admit to thoroughly enjoying the last story with Bert and his trial. New readers may find authors or series they will want to explore. I found a few I hadn't read that i may add to my list.

    Lots of good stories Not only do the proceeds go to a good cause, but the book is worth it. I really enjoyed all the stories in this anthology and now have a few new authors to look up. Cannot wait to start a few new series.

    Great collection of stories The authors in this book have come together with a wonderful collection of stories. There was only 1 author I was familiar with and now I am excited to read more of the others.

    Really good book I thoroughly enjoyed each of these stories and opened me up to each of their styles and prose. The only criticism I have if you can call I criticism is I wish I had more money available to start these series.

    Highly recommend Some great stories here. All of them are interesting and well written. I don't normally read shorts, I'm just getting into the story and it stops, but I suppose that's to get you to buy the books. Bank balance is going to take some more hits!!!

    Not all the stories were in an urban setting. A grab bag of odd characters. I enjoyed some more than others. I will be looking some of these authors up later.

    Mixed bag, some great short stories and awesome teasers with a couple of duds (for me, not my style) mixed in... I look forward to reading more from a number of these authors.
