I'll be giving that one a miss then. Thanks for the tip.

Even if I did have it on my wishlist though, it probably would sat at the bottom for a long time because short stories come waaaay down my list of want-to-reads. Thanks for saving me the trouble of finding out it was a poor purchase :D
SilverThistle: I should clarify, I'm not a fan of the PNR. I think people who read Kagawa's series appreciate the prequel. Not having read it, the prequel failed to hold my interest. Thistle is good, but you can grab it elsewhere. Definitely don't pay for this collection.

I haven't read any of Kagawa's or Aguirre's stuff so I'm probably not missing much by skipping these. Actually, I might have read the first few chapters of the Iron series now that I think about it but wasn't impressed.
Kagawa's story was bad. Really lame. Super, duper lame. Spoiler:

Noble woman, doing stupid things because "I had to try" (including caring for clearly dying people in a plague with no resources). What was her end game? It made no sense. And they are just unloading the bodies in a parking lot out back, which is glaringly inconsistent with her stupid behavior (not to mention a giant health risk taken by a medical person, but whatever).

Then the hero came and was all mysterious. At one point she does the "I'm not going to budge until you tell me the truth" during a threatening situation and he says "I will," just as soon as we run away from the monsters. She can tell he's hiding something; when he confesses, its actually nothing he is responsible for. The extra people that would be competition are killed so they can drive off with clear conscience, exchange "I love yous" before having sex in the middle of a vampire attack and ..blech. It was so tropey I only tried to get through it because so many people rave about Kagawa.
