    I DID IT! I read this entire box set filled with the worst books I have ever had the misfortune to read. If I could give this something lower than 1 star, I would. This is storytelling at its lowest form; there are typing mistakes, tenses swaps, the stories are all either insanely stupid, unoriginal or boring, most of the time all of these. It all feels like a first drafts; I can count on my hand the characters I actually liked in this 22-books box set. The box set sold itself as a Urban Fantasy I DID IT!

It all feels like a first drafts; I can count on my hand the characters I actually liked in this 22-books box set. The box set sold itself as a Urban Fantasy Heroines anthology from different authors but I honestly believe no one actually reviewed which books were sent because some of them fit neither of these descriptive, and it's so filled to the brim with sex that I'm starting to wonder who the fuck the target audience is. But this is all bark and no bite if I don't introduce you to these stains on writing. Let's go, shall we? Hunting in Dark Spaces Full Review Rating: 1 star Heroine: Yes Urban Fantasy: Yes Sexual Content: No This book is about a girl who's wanted by both these organizations. The Circle wants her so she can kill people, and the Sojourners want her so she can kill people. The Sojourners (that's the good guys) send a guy to save her from the circle and they go from place to place while the author lets you know what the entire world is thinking of the story through switching POVs that add nothing to the "story", which is just a recollection of whatever these people are doing that ends in a 3+ different climaxes all cut up and mixed together. The reason this is terrible is past the horrible writing, the flat characters, the nonsensical story is that no teenager would like this. The romance is nothing until the girl's mother tells them to get married after 3 days together, which they do. That's not what teenagers want in their romances. It's not for youngsters either because the writing is much too confusing with the reporter's chapters, and the characters and story is too flat and boring for adults. Dragon's Fate Full Review Rating: 0 stars Heroine: No Urban Fantasy: No Sexual Content: Up to the fucking roof Don't even think of this one. The plot happens at almost 50% of the book, it's full of random sex and poly relationships in the Roman times in England, the characters can be resumed in one word and nothing makes any sense. The enemy literally comes and go and 3 years are skipped like it doesn't matter and all is well that ends well. The reasons this fails is obvious; it's too graphic for kids but not good enough to be porn, the characters are too flat for teenagers and adults to enjoy and the "romance" I didn't even realize was happening until they kissed. There are no stakes, things are said and immediately contradicted and nothing is ever explained clearly and coherently so the reader stays in a state of confusion throughout. Rising Night: Beginnings Full Review Rating: 2 stars Heroine: Yes Urban Fantasy: Yes Sexual Content: Yes This one was better, but too predictable to be truly interesting. You follow 2 characters who discover hidden powers and get recruited by this organization and then it ends. I remember it being a sort of prologue before the real thing but the follow up doesn't seem to exist. The writing isn't terrible but it's nothing amazing, the characters are just ok, and it does goes on longer than it should. It's good enough for teenagers and adults might be interested as well, even if the characters' maturity isn't very high. Tohunga Rising Rating: 2 stars Heroine: Yes Urban Fantasy: Yes Sexual Content: None Oof. This one is a good mess. The plot is introduced as this girl having to fight sexism in her tribe and immediately after she goes off with this random guy to fight demons. Her tribe is never mentioned until she gets sick and they aren't pissed at her for not doing her duties or anything like that. It's fairly ridiculous. Characters are introduced right as they become important and there isn't really a plot, just small arcs that don't follow each other at all. It fails because the more serious themes are forgotten, leaving the teenagers in the dust, and the characters are too simple. Children will be confused by the serious matters hidden in between demon chases and the concepts proposed are too abstract and simplified for them to understand correctly. Henchgirl Full Review Rating: 4 stars Heroine: Yes Urban Fantasy: Yes Sexual Content: They’re teenagers after all This one was actually good, yes. The characters have depth, the romance is fun, the plot is interesting and the setting different. There's interesting mythology, the main character is realistic and smart enough. The only thing I thought was stupid was the ending. Charon's Quest Full Review Rating: 2 stars Heroine: No Urban Fantasy: Yes Sexual Content: None it’s ridiculous This one is terrible. The writing reminds me of a children's book, but the characters are well into their twenties and have talks about death and relationships and sacrifices which would go over children's heads, the characters are too flat and old for teenagers and too flat for adults. The story seemed interesting until it just became boring, in part thanks to the awful writing. People who like Greek mythology will come back tearing their hair out. It's just a stupid unfocused story about Charon walking around and falling in love. Soul Syndicate Rating: 2 stars Heroine: Yes Urban Fantasy: Yes Sexual Content: None This story started out well until it devolved into a gooey mess of PC culture coupled with the end of the world. The little that's explained to the characters doesn't justify their actions, they keep bickering and arguing when a bitch is having her leg bitten by a zombie and are just obnoxious, selfish assholes. The story is too confusing and short for adults to really get into it and serious themes of good and evil, death and sacrifice are mentioned but never developed. The Siren Full Review Rating: 2 stars Heroine: Yes Urban Fantasy: Yes Sexual Content: None This one seemed really interesting, then the middle part just becomes the same thing over and over again until all is resolved in the last 3 chapters. The characters started out ok but that middle part just kept them stagnated in the same environment and at the end of it you can't stand their faces anymore. They are flat, yes, and nothing serious ever happens, which will tire both adults and teenagers. The characters aren't mature and rounded enough for adults, and the story? What story? Hidden Full Review Rating: 3 stars Heroine: Nope Urban Fantasy: Yes Sexual Content: Annoying at best This one is a thriller. It's relatively ok, but the way the mystery is slowly revealed doesn't leave the reader the chance to figure it out by themselves. The characters are enough and have ok chemistry, the plot progresses fine despite a few hiccups and everyone gets a conclusion. Really, the only mistake was having these idiots keep a guy around who kept killing their suspects "accidentally". Helltown Full Review Rating: 1 star Heroine: Yes Urban Fantasy: Yes Sexual Content: Some This book is retarded. Not only is it stupid as shit, it's also the third book in a series, and yes I read it and yes I understood. Why would any author do this? Anyway, the story of this is just silly, the plot advances based on conveniences, the main character is nothing and everyone is just there, you keep being interrupted by these supremely annoying chapters that only slow the story down and the book literally ends like it began. It fails for teenagers because the characters are too old and flat, the relationships aren't developed and the tragedies in the background have no impact. Infinity Chronicles - Part One Full Review Rating: 1 star Heroine: Yes Urban Fantasy: Yeah Sexual Content: JESUS FUCKING CHRIST That one was just absurd. The main character is a singer and there are vampires and werewolves and witches and they do things, I guess. It's stupid. Too much random sexuality without payoff for teenagers, not enough depth for adults, not enough sense for both. Voodoo Unleashed Full Review Rating: 2 stars Heroine: Yes Urban Fantasy: Yes Sexual Content: Utterly ridiculous This one started well also until it went down the usual YA route of dickish boyfriend and stupid heroine with soul links at the end. The characters, while better than what we've had, are just unlikable. The sexual tension between them is just over the top and the plot is way too slow for something on a time limit. It's too immature for adults and too unlikable for teenagers. Blood Lust Full Review Rating: 2 stars Heroine: Yes Urban Fantasy: Yes Sexual Content: No Again, started good. Became boring after 8 chapters of nothing happened before the actual plot, which was nothing exceptional despite the fun premise. It being a lesbian romance is a lie; the relationship between the main character and her friend is never questioned or recalled during the story. The characters are better, again, but still nothing great. The writing was average and teenagers could definitely find better while adults will just run away, and it's too graphic for children. Ravenscoft: City of Angels Full Review Rating: 2 stars Heroine: No Urban Fantasy: Nope Sexual Content: Not even 3 chapters in This one was boring. The plot revolves on conveniences, the sexual tension is never cleared up and the characters are nothing exceptional, even kind of selfish and annoying. It's too graphic for children but not enough to be erotica, the story is slow and the writing is flat. Whatever For Hire Full Review Rating: 0 star Heroine: Yes Urban Fantasy: Yes Sexual Content: Someone kill me This is actual trash. The plot is retarded and doesn't make sense, the characters follow it instead of their characterization, which might be a good thing when you realize how shitty and Mary Sue-y they are. They get everything handed to them and the ending is one of the stupidest things I've ever come across. It's too graphic for kids, no payoff for adults or teenagers, the characters are too old for the latter and the subjects matters are too stupid for the former. Summer's Deadly Kiss Rating: 3 stars Heroine: Yes Urban Fantasy: Yes Sexual Content: Puberty am I rite This was... passable. The writing is too flat to carry any characters, but the little we see isn't deeply offensive so I'll take it. The plot is interesting enough despite a few hiccups, but that's pretty much it. I actually thought one main character was supposed to be a psychopath but it was just the writing that sucked. It's too flat for teenagers, too graphic for kids and too immature for adults. Clicks Full Review Rating: 1 star Heroine: Yes Urban Fantasy: No Sexual Content: Some This was retarded. Nothing happens after the main event, you can just skip to the end. The blurb outright lies about the romance, the characters are boring and stupid, the plot is nothing and it becomes this crazy story about dolphin clones. It's too silly for children, too boring for teenagers and too stupid for adults. Phoenix Possessed Full Review Rating: 3 stars Heroine: Yes Urban Fantasy: Yes Sexual Content: Some This was fine. The characters were ok, the plot made sense for what it was, there were stakes and I didn't feel like bashing my head on my desk while reading. It'd be good for young adults I guess. Dangerous Destiny Full Review Rating: 0 stars Heroine: Yes Urban Fantasy: Yes Sexual Content: OH FOR FUCK SAKE This is worse that 50 Shades of Grey. The characters meet, fuck and undergo a transformation that will link them together forever all in one day. The story is nothing until the ending where the only reason something happens is because the heroine has sand in her head and the purple prose drowns all the good there could be in the sex. It's for no one. Woman of the Wind Full Review Rating: 2 stars Heroine: Yes Urban Fantasy: No Sexual Content: For sure Zzzz again stupid flat characters with a stupid boring story. The gods are assholes, the characters are inconsistent and the world feels so small when everything turns around the same things no matter where they go. It might be for kids but the sexuality is still too much for them. Minnie Kim: First Kisses Suck Full Review Rating: 3 stars Heroine: Yes Urban Fantasy: Yes Sexual Content: To be expected This had potential, and some of it shone through, but it was still boring. The plot is a subplot, the characters, while fine, just stay like that without changing. It'd be ok for teenagers I guess. Chrysalis Rating: 2 stars Heroine: Yes Urban Fantasy: Barely Sexual Content: Too much without payoff This was just a romance with a fantastical aspect tacked on. It didn't need to be there. The characters are realistic, but thanks to the plot the go through random changes so the story can work. It's for teenagers. Empty Threat Full Review Rating: 0 stars Heroine: I think Urban Fantasy: Sort of Sexual Content: Thank god none This was garbage. The heroine is a genocidal self-aggrandizing uncaring bitch, the story is a mess, you cheer on the villains and it's just boring. Addicted in Cold Blood Rating: 1 star Heroine: Ehh not really Urban Fantasy: Fuck no Sexual Content: PORN! That was a ride. It's stupid, the characters are weird and unlikable, the story is just nonsense and it goes on forever. It's not for teenagers but is too stupid for adults. So yeah people. This is Sigils and Spells. Just read Henchgirl and forget the rest.

    A great compilation of diverse stories. Lori Titus opened up the boxset with an engaging story that set the tone for the rest of the stories. There is a little something for urban fantasy and paranormal lovers in this collection of stories.

And if that’s not enough to make you want to pick up this box set, I also found the other stories by a group of very talented authors to be very entertaining mystical magical reads which introduced me to writers that I was not acquainted with but will definitely looking out for their past, present, and future works. This wasn’t an unexpected but highly appreciated great group of stories you will not want to miss out on.

    There is a great collection of books in this anthology. I especially loved the captivating story by Rita Stradling that is set in a very unique world. Dragon shifters have broken through to Earth from their fire realm and bred with humans to create Dracons, who have various magical aspects and now rule most of the world. Humans consider Dracons to be infected and are very resentful of their control over them. Dracon teenager, Dakota Kekoa, unwittingly manages to draw the attention of the future There is a great collection of books in this anthology. I especially loved the captivating story by Rita Stradling that is set in a very unique world. Dragon shifters have broken through to Earth from their fire realm and bred with humans to create Dracons, who have various magical aspects and now rule most of the world. Humans consider Dracons to be infected and are very resentful of their control over them. Dracon teenager, Dakota Kekoa, unwittingly manages to draw the attention of the future Rex (the Dracon ruler) and she is not only drawn into a political and possibly romantic alliance with the future ruler, but she is also pulled into the erupting conflict with the humans. Dekota is a strong female lead, she is easy to connect with and the authors great writing allows you to feel her struggles, sorrows, fears and heart. She is willing to fight to protect those she cares for and her unique ability with souls adds a interesting aspect to the story. In some ways she is somewhat of an anti-hero as she works as an enforcer for her "crime lord" Grandfather, spying and manipulating souls, but you still cannot help but like and empathize with her. Wyvern, the half-dragon male protagonist, is somewhat of a controlling jerk, but them again he is not human. His character grows on you as the book progresses and I found myself routing for him by the end of the book. While his attitudes and actions are ultra domineering, he still accepts and listens when Dekota takes a stance (even though this is in opposition to Dragon ways.) While a love triangle does exist in this book, it does not overwhelm the plot but rather it adds to the intrigue. I enjoyed all the characters in this story, many of which had novel and unexpected aspects. This well written book has many twists and turns in the plot that keeps you turning the pages. I will look forward to the continuation of the story in the next book.

    Mostly amazimg One story had me laughing out loud so much I cried!!!!! One story was set in the Us, but the author kept putting UK words in there such as boot instead of trunk. The last story really bothered me. The writeup about the said she had great attention to details. As a looong time resident of !Maryland, I can tell you for a fact that Washington DC is not the same police force as Baltimore MD.

    There were only two stories in my opinion that were worth the time of reading this box set. So many problems. First, desperately needed an editor. Huge formatting problems. The very first story repeated the first paragraph twice. One story had intermittent words underlined. No rhyme nor reason to why. Some of the stories were just boring. I ended up skimming right through them. Just not worth the time to bother with.

Each Tantalizing Tale is filled with diversity and originality that has never been offered before to you, Darling Reader! I will feature one specific story: Soul Syndicate written by Lily Luchesi & Faith Marlow. Here is a small glimpse: “A Soul is a heavy burden to bear. There’s a gala celebrating the city and many notable celebrities are attending, including a rock star, a socialite, a baseball player, and an entertainment reporter. Each one is notable in their own right, and each one holding a secret. When they all get stuck in an elevator together after the gala is over, they think that that is the worst thing that could happen to them...until the doors finally open. The world as they knew it has gone, now they have poppies attached to their chests and are facing down soulless friends, family, and strangers. But they will make new allies along the way as well, including a crotchety old woman and a former drag queen. It’s a battle for the ultimate prize: their souls and the souls of everyone else on Earth. Can they save the world, or will these disparate individuals kill each other first?” The authors created such a unique tale, with true human emotion grabbing one’s heart-strings and causing one to forget to breathe while reading the story. The pace was fluid, the World-Building was Scary and Amazing, the characters were fully-fleshed out and well-developed. Gorgeous Bibliophile, I Never reveal ANY spoilers in my reviews as I wish for you to discover the joys of each Neat Narrative for yourself. I tenderly recommend you purchase this book for your home library, this earned 5 out of 5 Stars!

    I liked most of this collection. I can't give this five stars for several reasons. One, there are too many two and three star duds, at least a handful out of the twenty plus stories (one fourth of the total), which automatically cut a star overall. There were also some formatting problems at the beginning of too many chapters that almost cut another star (starting with the very first page and another entire section in the first book I won't bother detailing), but the excellent stories (other than I liked most of this collection.

On a side note, it's sad that so many poorly written books end up being labeled as 'best sellers' just because they're in a bundle that is marketed enough to sell to that level. I've read dozens of books much better than some of the ones in this bundle that will never be able to claim the 'best seller' label, but put those handful of duds in this collection to shame. There were several stories that were at a six star level (and a handful so boringly bad I skipped paragraphs and pages at a time). One I will point out that was both was the very last story. Both an excellent story and the kind of 50 shades, porn I can't stand, I skipped pages at a time, then enjoyed other entire sections immensely. It was one-third Stockholm Syndrome porn and two thirds excellent sci-fi ... I'm going to give the entire bundle a low four-two stars, because of the number of duds, but not a high three because there are so many excellent stories scattered around the handful of duds and excessive amount of formatting glitches at the beginning of so many chapters to make up for the bad parts.

    I read "Whatever for Hire" by R. J. Blain because I love her sense of humor. It's about a half Roma/half sphinx woman Kanika who does mercenary and odd job work under the horrible business moniker "Whatever for Hire." She's hired to kidnap a millionaire financial manager/super hot volunteer firefighter for 6 months, and also, Satan has a special interest in her and keeps meddling. She also knows a guy with a dragon. There's a whole bunch of dead people walking around, stinking the place up, too. I read "Whatever for Hire" by R. J. Blain because I love her sense of humor.

As usual, the ending seems rushed and random - I think this author needs to work on her craft when it comes to ending a story. I'll keep reading her, though, because she's VERY funny.

Aside from those and one or two other notable exceptions, I can, definitely, recommend this collection.

I don't want to give away of the fun twist and turns that happen, but make sure to read this book if you have read any of the Gatekeeper's series. Lots of happy and sad moment as well.

    Sigils and Spells is an excellent collection of twenty novels. From urban fantasy to dystopian realms to paranormal romance there is something for everyone. One of my favorite books in this collection is Rita Stradling's Henchgirl. Which is an engaging, entertaining and enjoyable read. It is well written, has a compelling plot and complex characters.

    Great assortment of fantasy reads I am so excited about this boxed set. I just finished reading one book out of this set already...can't wait to discover more. The first book I read out of this set was Dragon's Fate by Kris Austen Radcliffe, and the second book I read was First Kisses Suck by Ali Cross. While these two stories had their share of differences to offer, they both are stories that include fantastic creatures (dragons and vampires thus far). I would strongly recommend this set to anyo Great assortment of fantasy reads I am so excited about this boxed set.

    I’ve only barely gotten into this, having read the contributions from Kris Austen Radcliffe, Rita Stradling, Tina Glasneck and Catherine Banks. As anticipated (based on other books of these authors that I’ve read), these stories were all superb. I expect the same will be true for most - possibly all - of the other stories in this anthology, but even if I never read them (no chance of that) the anthology is a bargain sale just for these four tales. Highly recommended.

    I read Helltown by Tina Glasneck An engrossing third instalment … Thor is still imprisoned by Hel, the dark elves have taken over the world, Loki is helping Sif … what exactly is Hel doing? What is Sif’s role, and will she embrace it? Sif is conflicted about her love interests, but she’s loyal to her friends, and not about to be pushed around.

    Lori’s and Tiana Lori Titus and Tiana Laveen stories were amazing! Both authoress stories are the definition of Urban fantasy and why representation is important. Both of these authors are known for their intense writing styles and these stories in the boxset are no different.

    I'm the Wrong Person! A 70 plus person should not be reviewing this collection. The stories are good but written for the YA. I'd guess that my morals are a bit different too.

    I read some of the stories in 2018, the best story for me, was Addicted in Cold Blood, by Tiana Laveen. I have since gone on to read the sequel, The Tail of the Blood Dimond Both were very good.

    Helltown by Tina Glasneck story continues in high pace! Everything is happening so fast! The plot is interesting and full of surprises. Everyone is gray - you can't take anyone for granted. I was captivated by Helltown and I need more! Helltown by Tina Glasneck story continues in high pace! Everything is happening so fast! The plot is interesting and full of surprises.
