If you love reading about smart chicks kicking ass as much as I do, then you need to check out this anthology. Sporting both heros and heroines, this collection of short stories ranges from the typical James Bond style crime or secret service action to paranormal romance or urban fantasy. While picking this book up I had no idea I'd be in for such a diverse and fast paced ride. Did I mention its less than a dollar?! Fantastic travel book.
The majority of the stories left me wanting more--more about the characters and more from the authors. Luckily if that is the case, a lot of these stories are spin off scenes from full length books. Stories that especially stood out for me are:
The opening story by Carolyn McCray, "An Engagement to Remember," reminds me greatly of James Bond: fancy restaurant, satin dress and champagne turns into mayhem. Computer wizard Rebecca is a great female lead while Brandt takes the firearms. Both feature in Carolyn McCray's other works, 30 Pieces of Silver and Havoc.
"Uh Oh, It's Magic" by Amber Scott dives into action headlong. Callie has just received a blow to the head. She better figure out what to do fast! As the title hints, this one is urban fantasy. Amber Scott also writes paranormal romance.
Carolyn Mccray reapears in "With Star Diamonds in Her Eyes" as coauthor with Ben Hopkin. This interesting Paris adventure is science fiction mixed with crime. Ben Hopkin and Carolyn Mccray also author MoonRush: An Action-Packed Near-Future Adventure.
"What a Tiny World" by Jeremy Rodden is a seriously freaky theme park investigation. He is author of the Toonopolis series.
One of my ultimate favorites of this anthology is the short and funny, "It Keeps Getting Shitakier," by Patricia Mason, author of In Deep Shitake (A Humorous Romantic Suspense)
"Partners" by Mimi Barbour kindof disappointed me because you get a chunk of story without a real climax. Because it is split into chapters it seems longer than the other stories, while being less satisfying. To me this story was the Achille's heel of the anthology.
The anthology takes a strong finish with "Dark Lullaby" by Cristyn West. The supersnarky profiler Kent works alongside the more diplomatic detective Nicole to solve a case. Serial Killers are what the author Cristyn does best.
I received Bullets, Brass, & Babes: A Thriller Anthology free on Amazon as a promotion.
