Rob Thurman

by Lorie Lewis Ham


Shadowed Souls in an anthology with a bit of a different twist–the “heroes” in the stories are not your typical heroes and nothing is as simple as black and white.
The list of writers in this anthology is a fantasy lovers delight! Two of them are some of my favorite writers–Jim Butcher and Kat Richardson. I have also discovered some writers I had never tried before and now can’t wait to check out what else they have written.

Put together some kick ass female fantasy authors with some kick ass female characters and you have the anthology Kicking It! This anthology, with the theme of boots and the paranormal, is edited by Faith Hunter and Kalayna Price.

Michael or Misha or Lukas—whatever the name, he’s a genetically-engineered assassin who can kill with a touch. Stefan, his brother, kills in other ways—his Russian mafia father raised him to be deadly at any speed. Godzilla, Michael’s ferret—he’s a ferret, which is enough trouble for most people.

I had the great immense luxury of getting Rob Thurman’s Blackout early to review, meaning I got my fix of Cal and company early. Which was so awesome to say the least. Blackout, the sixth book in the Cal Leandros series, is probably my favorite with my only complaint being that Cal the main character’s powers are reduced. However, this is an awesome book.
