Publishers Weekly on Shadowed Souls

Shadowed Souls edited by Jim Butcher and Kerrie L. Hughes

“The morally gray heroes of this urban fantasy anthology refute the idea that all magic users are either good or evil. Butcher opens with his own “Cold Case,” the heart-wrenching story of a young woman trying to reconcile her new and terrible power with the duty she must perform…. Not every story will appeal to every reader, but the best of them truly shine.” — Publishers Weekly

2016 on Shadowed Souls

Shadowed Souls edited by Jim Butcher and Kerrie L. Hughes

“Jim Butcher is one of the biggest names in urban fantasy (maybe the biggest, considering his novels tend to debut at the top spot on the New York Times bestseller list), and Kerrie Hughes is one of the most accomplished anthologists in SFF. The two combine their estimable skills for Shadowed Souls, an anthology of urban fantasy stories whose theme focuses on the line dividing black from white, good from evil, and what lies in the shadows. The anthology is a good mix of stories, mixing contemporary settings, superheroes, and low-tech pre-industrial settings…. Every anthology will feature stories that work better for a one particular reader, than other stories would.. In this case, I found the Butcher, McGuire, and de Bie stories the most effective and enjoyable.” —

Shadowed Souls is a B&N Bookseller’s Pick for November

Shadowed Souls edited by Jim Butcher and Kerrie L. Hughes is one of the B&N Bookseller’s Picks: The Best Science Fiction and Fantasy Books of November 2016!

“Butcher and Hughes offer up a kickass anthology of urban fantasy featuring some of the best names in the genre. With stories from Butcher, Rob Thurman, Kristine Kathryn Rusch, Tanya Huff, Jim C. Hines, Seanan McGuire, and more, it’s a can’t-lose proposition made even better by the appearance of some of your favorite characters. Butcher’s “Cold Case” opens the anthology in grand style with a momentous case for Lady Molly, a familiar face from The Dresden Files novels; other standouts include stories set in the worlds of Seanan McGuire’s InCryptid series and Tanya Huff’s Vicki Nelson. It’s a must-read collection for any fan of urban fantasy.” — Barnes & Noble Sci-Fi and Fantasy
