Hello Fellow Readers, 

Like Most Anthologies, There are some stories that you prefer over others, this one was no different. Now, I am not going to go into details about which one I like better, but rather the whole anthology.

The one thing I liked the most about in This Wicked Darkness is that each story was just so unique. While, they all had rich fantasy elements, there were sprinkles of other genres throughout that just made each story feel different from the last one. 

Each story is a part of a book or series and provides you just enough to get you hooked, so if you like the characters or how a specific author writes, you can pick up their books that you would like to read. This is something I am going to do, and I've already signed up for certain authors newsletters. 

Overall, an enjoyable anthology.
