    Featuring New York Times best-selling authors Jim Butcher and Simon R. Green, and national best-selling authors Kat Richardson and Thomas E. Sniegoski, Mean Streets offers four novellas from the hottest names in contemporary paranormal suspense. Running the gamut from demons and werewolves to zombies and black magic, these whodunits crackle with otherworldly secrets, making for a noir collection with an extra set of fangs.

    Bonnie says: "A collection of 4 novellas"
    "Positively Anticipated, ...But Really Disappointed"
    Overall

    =Loved all 12 Books re: Harry Dresden - in no small part due to reader. The new voice (Dion Graham) for this short novella, although an artist with some talent, turns Harry into an afro-american who changes pronunciation of key elements relating to the history of adventures that ignore the fact that the main character was apparently shot dead in the previous installment. Dion could have at least listened to James Marsters excellent work in the previous 12.
    =Less than half way thru the second story, I'm enjoying Richard Poe's reading skills, as I did with his interpretation of Robert Langdon in Dan Brown's blockbusters. However, the story is bogging me down with every thing & the kitchen sink of supernatural elements thrown in that are more distracting than engaging due to the mere volume of inclusion without being germane or engaging. Sorry.

    In the realm of Alera, where people bond with the furies - elementals of earth, air, fire, water, and metal - 15-year-old Tavi struggles with his lack of furycrafting. But when his homeland erupts in chaos - when rebels war with loyalists and furies clash with furies - Tavi's simple courage will turn the tides of war.

    Eric says: "great fantasy series"
    "Did Not Disappoint"
    Overall

    -a bit of time to get engaged in characters, but really worth the ride. Jim Butcher is a great story teller
