Library Journal

From Rachel Caine's tale about potion witches Andy and Holly, who must stand up to a community suddenly turned against them ("Forked Tongues") to stories by urban fantasy authors Hunter, Christina Henry, and other genre talents, these nine selections revolve in some way around shoes, whether a pair of boots formerly worn by a killer to footwear intended to face Ariadne's killer spiders. VERDICT Though the theme of this collection might seem trivial, these entries succeed in pleasing fans of urban fantasy.

My Rating: 4.5 out of 5 Source: I received an e-Copy via the publisher in exchange for an honest review. What I love about anthologies is they give me a little taste of the series world to tide me over until the next major series installment is released. Kicking It provides just that with perfect little tastes of some of my favorite Urban Fantasy series…and did I mention that each story centers around something near and dear to my heart? That’s right, each one features BOOTS in all of their glorious manifestations be they demon possessed cowboy boots, gorgeous hand-tooled red leather magical boots (with matching purse), or sexy-as-hell black knee-high stilettos. Excuse me while I wipe off the drool for a minute. While some of the stories (Faith Hunter’s The Devil’s Left Boot and Chloe Neill’s High Stakes for example) are set in familiar UF worlds, they don’t necessarily feature the main characters. Instead we get more insight into the world by getting to spend a little time with various secondary characters, although we do get glimpses of from our fave heroines. The stories are all quick reads…like I said earlier an ideal little taste. The action moves quickly so you’ll be able to finish a single story during a lunch break or power through several if you’re like me and take a few hours to read each evening. I also have to admit that I wasn’t as familiar with some of the authors as I was with others (hey-don’t judge they’re all on my TBR!), but now that I’ve had this little introduction I can’t wait to dive into their worlds. So make sure you have Kicking It on your pre-orders for December 3, 2013, it’s a must-read!

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION’s Vivacious Valkyrie – Marta: Well this is a fabulous opportunity to sample the collected talents of some of the best authors of urban fantasy around today. This little gem contains short stories by best-selling authors that are a delight to read.  These tales whilst by nature short pack a punch. Each one is filled with madness and mayhem done in a kick ass style by heroines who take girl power to the extreme! A collection of supernatural stories with the women large and in charge! From witches to demons, from Gods to shoe obsessed vampires this book is chock full of delights. A great way to catch up with some of the established authors published works but also a chance to sample new ones. Most of the authors included are not new to me but I found it an excellent way to try work by one or two that had so far eluded my Kindle. I think what delighted me most was being able to read about characters that usually play a minor part in certain popular series. If you think the dark is scary then you really need these feisty females on your side! One thing is certain though if you read this you will be thoroughly entertained.

Kicking It is a great book to read when you want a kick ass heroine in your stories. I enjoyed each one of these novellas, some a little more than others. Not because they were in bad novellas in this book, but because some had a tougher heroine and I really got into those.

This is a great set of stories. I had bought it for Chloe Niell book but have enjoyed them all. Now I have new series to read.

This book is a great introduction to other authors and characters! I originally bought it because I was so captivated by Chloe Neill's Chicagoland Vampires series. Like most other readers I fell in love with the characters & CANNOT wait for the next book to come out, so I bought this one and discovered some other great characters and their crazy worlds.
