URBAN ENEMIES is a pretty fun romp into the twisted minds of the bad guys from various urban fantasy series. There were of course some characters who I had no clue about. Luckily each story starts off with a general summary of the series the character(s) appear in so there was some idea of what was going on.

This was a great story to start this anthology out with as it gives you the flavor of carnival life with its descriptions of sleazy carnies and weird, almost creepy relationships they have with eachother. PAINTED LOVE’s narrator, Doddle, was a weirdly passive and silent character and throughout most of the story I was constantly trying to figure out what his deal was.
The Iron Druid Chronicles has been one of the wittiest and clever series to break into the urban fantasy landscape over the past year. The prolific Hearne has released five titles in this series since 2011, helping to keep rabid fans satiated. In TRAPPED, however, he does more than deliver another hilariously smart tale, he lets twelve years pass between TRICKED and TRAPPED.
