All were worth the time and shared credit. I recommend. I enjoyed most of the short stories from Dark and stormy Knights. I like a longer book better than short stories on the whole. What other book might you compare Dark and Stormy Knights to and why? Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
When the mob boss saves the little girl. He's not as bad as he wants you to believe. Any additional comments? I especially liked the story by Jim Butcher. Instead of a story about the main character in his Dresden series, he writes a story about one of Dresden's adversaries. He makes the mob boss human and likeable. At the end he adds the twist that the security measures he uses to destroy the monster that attacks his headquarters were put in place for his final confrontation with Dresden.
Now you don't want either of these characters to lose that confrontation. What made the experience of listening to Dark and Stormy Knights the most enjoyable? The Jim Butcher story was worth the price alone, but this is a delightful- and delightfully performed for the most part, collection of stories. The Harry Dresden story was masterful in writing as well as performance. One of the early stories is a bit too fantasy for my tastes, and relied upon a confusing list of fanciful beings and items which was very chaotic. Added to the annoying "read", was an annoying voice that made it intolerable I will let you figure out which one I refer to: Hint: It will be obvious.
If it's not on the page it's not on the stage however, as the same voice actress rendered a stunning performance on a later story. Overall I recommend this collection highly- look at the klinker as an extra that doesn't matter, but don't let it stop you from picking this up- heck, most collections like this have only a couple good stories, this has only one mediocre one!
Who was your favorite character and why? Harry Dresden. The writing and performace were both 5 star. Depth of field in his ability to range from believeable woman to Harry himself. Did you have an extreme reaction to this book?

Elrod, not for Jim Butcher All of the entries are excellent reads, but as we all know the story narrated can ruin it for you. Great collection I'm giving this book four stars only because I'm not a huge fan of short stories. Tango Texas Rachel Caine blew me away!

Not sure why there was such a big price difference. Again, this is so fun. Loving this bingo. The writing is fantastic. I put off trying them initially for fear of disappointment, but now I eagerly await each one. I really wanted to read Of Fire and Stars but unfortunately it is not available at Amazon. Thanks for the tips. Oh what a great category. Thanks for all the suggested books! I covered this square with K. I have Daughter of Mystery and loved it. It sounds interesting as do several others on the list. This is a great list and there are more great suggestions in the comments. This is definitely my genre!!
Must read the Amendyr series, one of the best retold I think. This is good for comedy and romance. I think it would be cool to win the When Women Were Warriors series to expand my horizons! Jackson Leigh which is the third book in the Dragon Horse Wars. DHW rocks.
Since fantasy is a genre I have read a lot earlier in my life this is definitely a list I will hold on to. Read The Second Sister way back when it was an original fic posted online. Totally forgot about that! Or any lesbian fantasy. Thanks for all the suggestions! Love this category. Have been planning to check out Bridget Essex for a while, so this is the perfect opportunity. Happy reading everyone and Thanks again Jae for getting us all involved in this. Thanks so much for getting this out there. Strong female roles in the fantasy genre is exciting.
Can t wait!!! Great list Jae. The Dragonmage series is also awesome. The Alpennia series, Sword of the Guardian and the Pyradiste are excellent. I think for this card, I will choose Sword of the Guardian. A few new ones to add to my ever growing to be read pile. I was thinking of Jea Hawkins Ashland series for fantasy. A lot of the knights and princesses books just make me fall asleep.
So this may be a challenge for me. I do have The Second Sister so I may read that. Im also wondering if books in a post apocalyptic world are considered fantasy. Because its our world, no crazy characters, but our world is different. I feel like that would fit. Werlinger for this square. I enjoyed it. I categorize it as historical fiction.
It takes place in Bronze Age Britain and includes no magical beasts, and no magical spells other than those a Bronze Age people would have believed in. I had a reason for categorizing the book as historical fiction. My intention was to put my female protagonist into the real world, with real world challenges that she must meet with her very real gifts as a woman—compassion, empathy, understanding, intelligence, and courage.
Because all of us have those gifts, but not all of us have dragons…. I picked My Fair Maiden. It came free with the sequel Malodorous. Great humor, fantasy, sexual tension, and plot twists. The cover of the book had the protag crouching on her bunk bed, sword in hand, as the assassin stares her down. Have you tried some of the lesbian fiction Facebook groups? The vampire wants the Word of Kemmler and all the power that comes with it - but first Harry has to determine what the Word of Kemmler is.
Now Harry is in a race against time - and six necromancers - to find the Word before Chicago experiences a Halloween night to wake the dead. But war with the vampires has thinned their ranks, so the Council has drafted Harry as a Warden and assigned him to look into rumors of black magic in the Windy City.
As Harry adjusts to his new role, another problem arrives in the form of the tattooed and pierced daughter of an old friend, all grown-up and already in trouble.
Her boyfriend is the only suspect in what looks like a supernatural assault straight out of a horror film. Malevolent entities that feed on fear are loose in Chicago, but it's all in a day's work for a wizard, his faithful dog, and a talking skull named Bob In Chicago, someone is targeting magic practitioners--the members of the supernatural underclass who don't possess enough power to become full-fledged wizards.
Some have vanished. Others appear to be victims of suicide. But now the culprit has left a calling card at one of the crime scenes--a message for Harry Dresden. Harry sets out to find the killer, but his investigation turns up evidence pointing to the one suspect he cannot possibly believe guilty: his half brother, Thomas. To clear his brother's name, Harry rushes into a supernatural power struggle that renders him outnumbered, outclassed, and dangerously susceptible to temptation. And Harry knows that if he screws this one up, people will die--and one of them will be his brother No one's tried to kill Harry Dresden for almost an entire year, and his life finally seems to be calming down.
For once, the future looks fairly bright.
Dark and Stormy Knights
But the past casts one hell of a long shadow. An old bargain has placed Harry in debt to Mab, monarch of the Winter Court of the Sidhe, the Queen of Air and Darkness-and she's calling in her marker. It's a small favor he can't refuse It figures. Everything was going too well to last For years, the Council has held a death mark over Harry's head. He's still thought of as a black sheep by some and as a sacrificial lamb by others. But none regard him with more suspicion and disdain than Morgan, a veteran Warden with a grudge against anyone who bends the rules.
Morgan has been accused of treason against the White Council, and there's only one final punishment for that crime. He's on the run, he wants his name cleared, and he needs someone with a knack for backing the underdog. And a single mistake may cost someone his head. Susan then disappeared to South America, where she could fight both her savage gift and those who cursed her with it. To prevail this time, he may have no choice but to embrace the raging fury of his own untapped dark power.
Because Harry's not fighting to save the world He's fighting to save his child. When we last left the mighty wizard detective Harry Dresden, he wasn't doing well. In fact, he had been murdered by an unknown assassin. But being dead doesn't stop him when his friends are in danger.
Add to Cart failed.
Except now he has nobody, and no magic to help him. And there are also several dark spirits roaming the Chicago shadows who owe Harry some payback of their own. To save his friends-and his own soul-Harry will have to pull off the ultimate trick without any magic And now, her word is his command, no matter what she wants him to do, no matter where she wants him to go, and no matter who she wants him to kill. Guess which Mab wants first? Mab wants her newest minion to pull off the impossible: kill an immortal.
No problem there, right? And to make matters worse, there exists a growing threat to an unfathomable source of magic that could land Harry in the sort of trouble that will make death look like a holiday. Beset by enemies new and old, Harry must gather his friends and allies, prevent the annihilation of countless innocents, and find a way out of his eternal subservience before his newfound powers claim the only thing he has left to call his own… His soul. Worse, Dresden suspects that there is another game afoot that no one is talking about. Especially Harry. Big Apocalyptic Trilogy ending:.
