Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love Jenks and Bones I read this anthology for Ley Line Drifter by Kim Harrison and Reckoning by Jeaniene Frost. Ley Line Drifter is a short story about Jenks on his own assignment helping out Vincent another pixie protect his family. This was a very nice story, which included Ivy, Bis and Jumoke. It was nice seeing Jenks from his POV and seeing more of pixie culture. I loved this little story. Reckoning was a short story from Bones POV before he met Cat. (Prequel to Night Huntress series) Bones is summoned to New Orleans by the Voodoo queen to investigate some murders of humans. It was nice to see how Bones was before he met Cat. We have only seen him through her eyes in the series. I absolutely love him and this story made me love him even more. You can see how empty and lonely his life was before Cat and how easily he fell in love with her. You also see his honor when he didn't need it. I recommend reading theses stories for anyone who is following the series. You don’t need to read them but it's nice to see these beloved characters.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 3 out of 5 ain't bad... I picked up this book specifically for the story about Jenks that Kim Harrison had in it. Needless to say, I loved it. You get a more personal look into the life of both pixies and gargoyles, and Jenks teams up with the newest addition to the Hollows family to dispatch a rather upset ghost. Jeanine Frost's story was a little different than I expected. I was going into it expecting an excerpt of both Cat and Bones, but Cat does not appear within the story. Rather this tale takes place in New Orleans with Bones squaring off against Vodoo queens and their minions before taking off to hunt down the undead who would lead him to Cat. An interesting and revealing look into the life of Bones pre Catherine, as well as the other various big wig characters within the world. Jocelynn Drake was the diamond in the rough that I discovered within this book. Melissa Marr was too YA for me, and Vicki Petterson was too sci-fi. I loved Drake's character Mia aka Firestarter, and this little snippet into the life of an undead pyromaniac lead me into a interesting new series when I was thirsty for new blood. Anthologies are always a good choice when you don't know what to read, and I recomend Unbound for Harrison, Drake, and Frost Fans.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice filler book Well this is only my second one of these, and I was happy with all of it. There wasn't one story that stuck out, and even better, all of them held my interest enough to not SKIP anything. It was nice to re-visit some great charachters, and I have yet to read anything from MARR and PETERSON, so it was a great intro to them :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Chills and Thrills This is a collection of 5 short stories by authors known for their exploration of the mythic worlds. Fairies, vampires and superheros abound. My favourite of the grouping was 'Ley Line Drifter' by Kim Harrison. It is set in Cincinnati at a time when the remaining human population lives in an uneasy peace with numerous 'other' beings. Jenks is a pixy who has the unusual job of a private investigator. This was a take on pixy's that I had not experienced previously. in fact, I don't think I had even considered pixys as main characters before. I don't know why as this was a totally convincing portrayal. I loved this character and was sad when the story ended. I still want to read more of his exploits. The creepiest story in the book is 'Reckoning' by Jeaniene Frost. Bones is a vampire but also a bounty hunter and he is on the prowl for Delphine and Louis LaLauries who have been dismembering and eating people for two hundred in New Orleans. Bones is also a vampire with a conscience and great looks to boot. Yes, I definitely want more of him. Dark Matters by Vicki Pettersson is the story of 2 superheros, one on the side of light and the other dark. They meet and the hormones fly. Good vs bad, love vs hate, with a illicit romance tangled within. This story didn't really work for me, I never was much of a superhero fan. The Dead, the Damned, and the Forgotten by Jocelynn Drake is the story of Mira, the Keeper of the Domain of Savannah. It's her job to police the behaviour of the 'nightwalkers' living in her territory. All hell erupts one night and Mira has to straighten it out before she is recalled to the 'Coven' to explain. That's one thing she definitely doesn't want to do. I loved the characters of Mira and her assistant/enforcer Knox. They work well together, very well indeed. The final entry is by Melissa Marr titled 'Two Lines'. This story introduced me to a mythical being called a Glaistig, which is a female who has murdered and had sex within the same month. At issue in this story is Eavan, who has done neither and doesn't want to change, she likes being human. But, she is treading a very thin line and her grandmother Nyx is doing what she can to tip the balance. I was surprised that I didn't enjoy this story very much. I loved her earlier book 'Wicked Lovely', I guess I was expecting more faery stories. If you enjoy mythic characters and strong moral characters, then you'll love this book. If you don't like vampires, well maybe not for you. As for age appropriateness, I am not letting my 13 year old daughter read this yet. She loves Vampire stories, but there is sex and violence, so she will have to wait.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nothing Outstanding This is the second anothology that I have read. I find that unless you know the author(s) already, that I just can't get into the other stories. I think that if and when I get to read something by the other authors I will revist this book. Kim Harrison is an author I am planning on reading soon. I picked this up when I heard Jeaniene Frost did a storey on Bones by himself. It was interesting to see Bones before he meets Cat. It shows Bones as the strong and determined vampire that he is. It was good, but not a great as I had hoped. Bones is better with Cat.
