Thoughts: Those Who Fight Monsters is dark and fresh. Essentially an Urban Fantasy delight. Fans of this genre will be itching to get their hands on this book. I loved it. I got to visit favorites such has Quincey Morris, Tony Giodone & Pete Caldecott. But also introduced to others such as Marla Mason, Jill Kismet and many more.
My favorite stories from this anthology are: Little Better Than A Beast by T.A. Pratt, Deal Breaker by Justin Gustainis & Running Wild by Rachel Caine.
