I really like the themed collections that Harris and Kelner have been doing. For one thing they have lots of writers that I do read so dipping into familiar universes is great. The plus was a new to me writer that I will probably track down and read some more stuff and that is the point of this series of collections. Mostly familiar but always something new to trip over. So if urban fantasy is your thing this collection as a bit of everything along the spectrum of what people think is urban fantasy.

This review applies only to MAGIC TESTS by Ilona Andrews, which was really fun and short...but I won't complain about the shortness, because it was a very satisfying tidbit to tide me over until the next Kate novel. Yay! ( )

Well look at that; this is where all the gold has been! A good portion of the stories were full of awesomeness. Some characters I knew, and others well I look forward to meeting them soon.
Don't shy away from some of the older characters.
Have fun with this one guys!
Cheers Pretties! ( )

I was disappointed to find only 3 stories with a teenager as the main character. Most of the settings were seminars, training for work, and one adult's punishment in hell was to relive her first day as a freshman over and over again. ( )

I guess I had low expectations when it came to this book. I have no idea why although it was probably because of one of the contributing authors (her series has gotten more bizarre over the years) but I'm glad I read An Apple for the Creature because it was a joy to read.

The stories weren't particularly bone-chilling or terrifying but they made you tense and gave you a feeling of anticipation with every page turn. Even the cutesy stories like Pirate Dave and the Captain's Ghost. My favorites were Low School and Iphigenia in Aulis. The former is about a young girl harrowing day in a new high school and the latter describes a dystopian kind of world form a young girl's eyes.

This anthology was perfect to read near the end of October during Hurricane Sandy. ( )
