I borrowed this book after the high I was on from reading [b:Magic City: Recent Spells|20299673|Magic City Recent Spells|Paula Guran|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1391041549s/20299673.jpg|28133245]. Plus it contains a story from Patricia Briggs. How could I resist? I should have. Boy was I disappointed. At least one of the stories is a repeat found in another collection. This reminds me again why I avoid collections. I'm frequently disappointed and feel as if I wasted my time. My time would have better been spent finding just the specific short stories from the authors I wanted.
