Publisher's Summary

In this dark and gritty collection - featuring short stories from Jim Butcher, Seanan McGuire, Kevin J. Anderson, and Rob Thurman - nothing is as simple as black and white, light and dark, good and evil....

Unfortunately, that's exactly what makes it so easy to cross the line.

In number-one New York Times best-selling author Jim Butcher's "Cold Case", Molly Carpenter - Harry Dresden's apprentice-turned-Winter Lady - must collect a tribute from a remote Fae colony and discovers that even if you're a good girl, sometimes you have to be bad.

New York Times best-selling author Seanan McGuire's "Sleepover" finds half-succubus Elsie Harrington kidnapped by a group of desperate teenage boys. Not for anything weird. They just need her to rescue a little girl from the boogeyman. No biggie.

In New York Times best-selling Kevin J. Anderson's "Eye of Newt", Zombie PI Dan Shamble's latest client is a panicky lizard missing an eye who thinks someone wants him dead. But the truth is that someone only wants him for a very special dinner....

And New York Times best-selling author Rob Thurman's infernally heroic Caliban Leandros takes a trip down memory lane as he deals with some overdue - and nightmarish - vengeance involving some quite nasty "Impossible Monsters".

Also includes stories by Tanya Huff, Kat Richardson, Jim C. Hines, Anton Strout, Lucy A. Snyder, Kristine Kathryn Rusch, and Erik Scott de Bie.

Full cast of narrators includes Jon Lindstrom, Sumalee Montano, Mozhan Marno, Karissa Vacker, and Macleod Andrews.

    "good and meh"

    the short story kicking off the anthology is pretty revealing about Molly's new gig. The rest of the anthology held less interest for me. there may be another gem or two in the rough.. but don't expect to be stunned.

    Most of the shorts I really enjoyed. The last 2 were awesome! I'm going to pick up Rob Thurman's Cal Leandros series.

    Story
    "This anthology should be renamed...."

    "Authors who desperately need to get laid". Jim Butchers story was decent, but the second one reads like bad Lost Girl fan fiction ( painful to to listen too) and the rest are almost as terrible. I feel bad, because I love Butchers work and this was his debut as an editor but I think he needs some more practice as I'm not really seeing the Theme for this anthology coming to the forefront. it was too busy on its backside.

    I think Jim should have followed some Dresden logic and poured some icewater down his pants to clear his mind.
    The narration over all was passable, nothing special but not bad either.
    This is was not worth the full credit.

    "Poor"

    Poorly written stories. With almost no connection to the Dresden universe. In my opinion, do not waste your time or money.

    Story
    "Dishonest to Call This a Dresden Files Book"
    Would you try another book from Jim Butcher - editor and Kerrie L. Hughes - editor and/or the narrators?

    From Jim Butcher, yes... With anyone else included, no...


    What was most disappointing about Jim Butcher - editor and Kerrie L. Hughes - editor ’s story?

    I purchased this on my cell phone. The lack of information that I received on my phone caused me to assume that this was a full Dresden Files book. Sadly I was mistaken. This is a collection of short stories. Hopefully you don't get tricked like I did.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Nothing wrong with the narrator.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Shadowed Souls?

    I would remove anything that was not a Dresden Files story.


    Any additional comments?

    You deceived me. I am not pleased.

    "giant disappointment stay away"

    If You're Expecting Jim Butcher you don't get it. this is nothing like the other books in the Harry Dresden series. this is the first time I have ever pre-ordered a book and it was a giant mistake. the stories are shallow and not fun. I was so excited when I saw another book in the series was coming out. again stay away don't waste your money.

    "very well done"

    Kate and her husband are as good as it gets. Jim Butcher's story is just great. The rest don't drop in quality either. This one is well worth your time.

    "All the stories are pretty good."

    The performances were also well done. Overall I recommend the title. The stories themselves are not all set in the Dresden files universe. But the one that is set there is excellent.

    Story
    "Not what I thought..."

    I, like others, was excited about a new Dresden set of short stories. I realized they were not all written by Butcher, but I did think the stories were at least in the Dresden universe.

    While the first story was about Molly, the rest just seemed to be about creatures that MIGHT have been in the DresdenVerse, they were not specifically written that way. When you pair that with the fact that they weren't written by Dresden either, it turns out to be a real let down.

    Jim Butcher is a great author and I love the way he weaves a story together. I don't JUST like wizards and vampires, etc..I like the way Butcher does it. I did not care for the rest of the stories after the first one. I tried to like them anyways, but I found myself skipping to the next story on several occasions.

    If you were really excited to see a new book in the Dresden lineup, you might skip this one. In my opinion it wasn't worth the credit. Kind of wish I'd saved mine for the new Sanderson book that just came out in the Stormlight Archive series (also short stories). Now I have to wait for more credits!

    "Anthologies"

    Anthologies that include my fav authors are always exciting because I get a taste of so many other authors I either haven't read or sometimes haven't even heard of. Now I get to go through audible and download several series from diff authors from this one. Great collection of stories that shows the dark side of the good guys, or the good side of the not good guys(?)
