Overview

Chicks Kick Butt by Rachel Caine (Editor), Kerrie L. Hughes (Editor), Dina Pearlman, Joyce Bean

Chicks are awesome—and never more so than when they are kicking some serious vampire/werewolf/demon/monster butt.

Chicks Kick Butt is an anthology that features one of the best things about the urban fantasy genre: strong, independent, and intelligent heroines who are quite capable of solving their own problems and slaying their own dragons (or demons, as the case may be).

Edited by Kerrie Hughes and Rachel Caine, Chicks Kick Butt features original stories from thirteen authors, eleven of whom are New York Times bestsellers:

- Rachel Caine (with a story from her bestselling Weather Wardens universe)

- L.A. Banks

- Rachel Vincent

- Karen Chance

- Cheyenne McCray

- Susan Krinard

- Jenna Black

With a nod to the Chicks Ahoy anthologies (edited by Esther Frieisner), Chicks Kick Butt is a fun urban fantasy collection starring strong feisty females. Many of the thirteen entries occur in the respective author's universe. Rachel Caine's "Shiny" stars a Weather Warden, her Djinn lover and a rookie fighting terrorists. Karen Chance's "In Vino Veritas" concentrates on the dhampir fighting Chinese gangsters. Rachel Vincent's "Hunt" focuses on rookie werecat battling predators. Lilith Saintcrow's vampire searches for "Monsters" but rescues a werewolf. In 1937 P.N. Elrod insists "Vampires Prefer Blondes" as a vamp and his nightclub dancing best gal battle an ancient bloodsucker. Morgan Kingsley knows what happens when the wrong type visit in "Nine Tenths of the Law" by Jenna Black. Cheyenne McCray's "Double Dead" is a Night Tracker contribution. Delilah Street investigates the "Monster Mash" in Carole Nelson Douglas' tale while L.A. Banks provides a vampire war in Wanted: Dead or Alive. Also Jeanne C. Stein provides an Anna Strong "Superman" short. Susan Krinard, Nancy Holder and Elizabeth A. Vaughan introduce their fans to new realms. Fans of the various series that populate most of the compilation will enjoy the latest actions of these Chicks Kick Butt though the format size and the limiting serious theme does not allow much plot development or satirical skewering. Still these are fun light frolics as the gender bending females kick the butt of their opponents including males. Harriet Klausner

If the cover illustration doesn't pull you into the book, let the reviews do that for you. A great anthology of short stories featuring female protagonists who can handle adversity and come out on top. I had not read any of the authors previously and generally don't read paranormal fiction, but I did enjoy this book. The short stories do make it easy for the reader to learn a bit about a character or a series without taking the leap into an entire book. A great read. My favorite was "Double Dead" by Cheyenne McCray. It's Nyx against the Metamorphs, those creepy creatures who assume the appearance of a person in order to relieve them of their power, their life, or to bring together some horrible scheme. Nyx is taken in her human form as a private investigator. I thought it was weird that she seemed to be captured so easily by the Metamorphs, being that Nyx is a kick-a__ woman but the story does come together nicely.

There were several good stories and some I struggled to get through. Stopped reading halfway through and waited for a couple of weeks before attempting it again. Did finish it, but it didn't live up to my expectations.
