Strange Brew

Strange BrewIn this bewitching collection, nine of today’s hottest paranormal authors spin otherworldly tales featuring witches and dark magic.

Faith’s story in this book is called Signatures of the Dead. It is the prequel to Skinwalker.

Review from Library Journal:

Elrod (“The Vampire Files”) curates another urban fantasy anthology featuring a mix of marquee names and newcomers. Unlike in his previous collections (My Big Fat Supernatural Wedding; My Big Fat Supernatural Honeymoon), the theme—witches—is looser, allowing the contributors freedom to expand upon their current popular series. Best-selling authors Patricia Briggs (Bone Crossed) and Jim Butcher (Turn Coat) open the anthology with stories set in familiar worlds. While Briggs’s “Seeing Eye” is not tied to either of her current series, the themes are similar, and her weres make an appearance. Butcher’s “Last Call,” the highlight of the collection, finds wizard detective Harry Dresden tracing a batch of tainted beer to a Chicago Bulls game. Faith Hunter’s promising new series featuring skinwalker Jane Yellowrock is launched in the surprisingly touching “Signatures of the Dead.” The only misstep here is Karen Chance’s (Curse the Dawn) contribution, “Vegas Odds,” which focuses on a drawn-out fight scene at the expense of character development. VERDICT Readers will pick this one up for the popular authors and be pleasantly surprised by the tyros. Highly recommended.—Nanette Wargo Donohue, Champaign P.L., IL
