A few short stories/novellas with darkness in them.
Marion missing by Rachel Caine
PI Val tries to find who killed his partner Tilde. Mystery murder and darkness. Good.
Femme fatale by Cynthia Eden
A vamp and a PI. Kind of boring. I started skimming, even though it was only a novella.
Dance with the devil by Megan Hart
It started off a bit meh, but turned interesting. The devil is cruel.
The consort by Suzanne Johnson
A fae running from a fae prince. I liked this story
Heart's blood by Jeffe Kennedy
It was really good and all, but I just read another retelling of the goose girl, so I was never surprised.
The djinn in the mirror by Mina Khan
I liked the djinn world the best. Would love a book about that. The rest of the story was good, but not as good as the djinn world.
Some I liked more, some I likes less. But that is the thing with anthologies. There are always the ones you like more, and the ones that might not fit your style. The 3 last were my favorites. Must be because of the fantasy elements. You all know I love that.
