Review: Heroic Hearts

Jeff D. Ellis

A new anthology featuring several of my favorite authors! What’s not to like? An all-star urban fantasy collection featuring short stories from #1 New York Times bestselling authors Jim Butcher, Patricia Briggs, Charlaine Harris, Kelley Armstrong, and more . . . In this short story collection of courage, adventure, and magic, heroes—ordinary people who do the right thing—bravely step forward.

There are so many great stories in this anthology! I of course had to devour the new Harry Dresden story which was mostly about his pixie protectors. It was a little skimpy on Harry but made me feel like I was visiting with old friends. 

I really enjoyed Patricia Briggs’s “Dating Terrors.” If you’ve read her Mercyverse books, you won’t want to miss this story! Asil (The Moor), the mostly crazy out-of-control werewolf, goes on his fourth blind date with a woman who isn’t exactly what she appears to be. They’re both heroes in their own ways, with Asil guiding his lady to become the hero she always was meant to be. And they heal each other in rather unusual ways. I can’t wait to see what happens next.

This anthology is a wonderful collection of stories. This is a definite must have in your collection.
