I thought this whole thing was novellas taking place before the Immortal Rules. I wasn't paying attention clearly. I only read the Julie Kagawa story because I just really wasn't that interested in the others. I might give them a try later. But even the first one was just kinda bleh to me. I mean I love the Immortal Rules world. But that just felt boring. And it reminded me a lot of the second season of the Walking Dead with the family farm and I didn't care for that either. So I got bored. Whatever, it was an ok read, definitely a lot racier than Julie's other works thus far.
