This book is a mixed bag three of these stories I really liked and three of them I didn't even finish Literally the only thing these stories share is genre and since my opinions on them vary greatly I'm going to tackle them all individuallyScapegoat by Aimee EasterlingI did not finish this one It's one of the longer ones and I didn't get very far into it It started with a nineteen year old stripper getting almost assaulted on her way home then she gets saved by a werewolf who turns into a guy that she knew from the strip club who then asks her to leave town with his pack because he wants her to be his mate or something It was like the cringiest werewolf romance ever in the first five pages and I just skipped ahead to the next storyDead Goblins and Overdue Rent by Tori CentanniThis was one of my favorites It had the urban fantasy idea of a character with powers navigating a supernatural world while still trying to do ordinary things like make rent The story was creative the mystery aspect was good and I just love characters that win because the antagonist didn't know they had some sort of ridiculously strong power The story was left weirdly unresolved which is my only criticism but I enjoyed this oneMagically Hidden by Rachel MedhurstAnother longer one and another one I didn't finish The concept was actually interesting two agents from Magical MI5 are trying to prevent a museum robbery and they think they succeeded until they realize they were outwitted But I couldn't stand the romance between the two main characters which mostly consisted of the narrator lusting after her partner I gave up at the line Mr Hunky Pants that's short for Gerard The only thing the narrator seemed to care about was getting in her partner's pants and I couldn't tolerate it even to figure out what happened during the museum robberySiloed by Dale Ivan SmithAnother favorite A very creative story about a guard at a prison for supernatural criminals who gets caught up in a betrayal and escape plan The world or at least the tiny part of the world that was the supernatural prison was well developed for as short as the story was the main character was sympathetic and the plot is really good including unexpected enemies and an unexpected ally I was impressed with how much the story managed to do while still being fairly shortAlchemy and Destiny by Becca AndreThis one I didn't finish but I think that might just be me since it wasn't a content issue at all The story started okay if bland one brother in a family of Hunters being picked on by his other brothers because he's skilled than them I stopped reading because the way the characters and story were written was something I would expect to see in something I wrote when I was 13 The style was like my middle school fanfiction than anything I would expect to see published and I didn't enjoy itDirty Magic by NR HairstonThis is another one that I really enjoyed It's one of the longer ones I think the longest and deserved the page time The main character has the ability to open portals between worlds and uses that ability to hide criminals on the run who pay her well and victims of violence which she does pro bono When one of the victims she hid goes missing again she sets out to find and rescue the woman The setting is great with several interesting worlds and I really liked the main character There's also something bigger going on than just one missing woman and overall it was a thoroughly enjoyable storyRun Away by Kat CottonI am not really s
