↠´ Were- Ã Download by Ã Patricia Bray I purchased this anthology for the Jane Yellowrock novella and skipped the rest For that reason, I don t feel comfortable rating the anthology as a whole I give Jane s story a 3.
5 rating I much prefer the stories where Jane interacts with Bruiser or the vamps Edmund or Leo in particular Though Leo plays a small part in this particular story I m not much of an Anzu lover, sorry big bird Anzu, Duba, Beast by Faith Hunter 3.

5 stars I m not reading the anthology as a whole bc the only author I m familiar with was the reason for the purchase.
I got this for the Hunter and McGuire stories, but was really enjoyed the others as well Overall a well written anthology and a fun read.
Any anthology edited by Bray and Palmatier have become insta buys for me This is the third anthology from these two and, again, I was not disappointed The first two anthologies are The Modern Fae s Guide to Surviving Humanity sheep review and After Hours Tales from Ur Bar sheep review Trivia this was the very first review I did for I Smell Sheep Were was one I helped bring to life via the kick starter campaign Bray and Palmatier manage to recruit some of the top authors in urban fantasy and science fiction You really can t go wrong with any of these anthologies.
Back to Were , the stories range from 5 sheep to 3 1 2 sheep, most on the high end of the scale And as the title suggests, all the stories are about were creatures But not the ordinary kindthese are unusual weres crows, possums, wasps and some I won t mention because they are surprises All th I really enjoyed this collection As always, some stories are better than others, but overall enjoyable.
I m giving it 4 stars as with most anthologies, some of the stories are 5s and some are 3s.
