URBAN FANTASY SHORT STORY COLLECTION: Shards and Ashes - Ed. Melissa Marr and Kelley Armstrong

Release Date: 28/02/13


The world is gone, destroyed by human, ecological, or supernatural causes. Survivors dodge chemical warfare and cruel gods; they travel the reaches of space and inhabit underground caverns. Their enemies are disease, corrupt corporations, and one another; their resources are few, and their courage is tested. Powerful, original dystopian tales from nine bestselling authors offer bleak insight, prophetic visions, and precious glimmers of light among the shards and ashes of a ruined world. Stories from: Kelley Armstrong Rachel Caine Kami Garcia Nancy Holder Melissa Marr Beth Revis Veronica Roth Carrie Ryan Margaret Stohl


As a huge fan of Kelley Armstrong I’m pretty much guaranteed to pick up any book by her but when you add to the mix the chance to get some short stories from a whole bunch of top talent. (There’s currently no official collective name for a group of writers, so please can someone come up with one. LOL)

Each authors tale is unique but ties in to an overall theme of a dark future, there’s glimpses of hope and tales of survival but with the huge range on option this book is a cracking way to try authors you may not have had the pleasure of spending time with already. Add to this the fact that they’re a great way to spend a journey or a lunch break and all round I was a happy reader.
