This is my first time reading a set of anthologies and I actually liked it. It's kind of neat to get a bit of a taste of a few different authors. I will admit that I, like everyone else, requested this one from NetGalley because of Julie Kagawa, but I actually really enjoyed the other stories as well.So the first story, Dawn of Eden, was the one I was most looking forward to because I loved The Immortal Rules. I'm going to start out by saying while I really enjoyed it, it is NOT young adult. There is a very steamy sex scene in it. Extremely descriptive, and while I won't say I hated the scene, it just shocked me immensely because I wasn't expecting it at all. So I was just a bit confused because The Immortal Rules is a YA, so I would only assume that people who enjoy it will want to read everything to do with the series, so it just concerns me that some young teen will read this, I know I wouldn't want my daughter to read this as a teen. I know it is up to the parent to screen these things, but they might not think to do it for all of the books in a series. I don't know, just my thoughts. It was very well written though, makes me kind of hope that Julie will write more adult content for a new series, or something. I liked getting a glimpse of how the Red Fever progressed and how the rabids came to be though. I'm not really going to say much, I don't want to give away much, but it's worth the read!Thistle & Thorne was also a fairly good read, I was a bit confused when I started it, but quickly caught on and was able to visualize the world. This was my first taste of Ann Aguirre's writing, which is really bad because I've been wanting to read the Razorland series. But I will say that it was really enjoyable. I like that it seems to be a stand alone story because now I'm not sitting here waiting for the next story, I just know it's done (unless there is more I'm not aware of). I think after having read this, I will for sure be checking out more of her work. She does a great job with world building and character building, even with a short story. So that shows me that she has a way with words. I think if you were to pick up this anthology, you should definitely read this story as well! I liked the characters and how they didn't quite trust each other, and it kind of leaves you wondering a bit about them after, but that's good because it means you're still thinking about the story. It's pretty good!Sun Storm is the third and final story in the anthology and I have to say that I really enjoyed this one. It was very easy to imagine the world because the world building was quite well done. I had a bit of an issue with the insta love thing that happened, but it was somewhat explained by the need the two characters had for each other, they are both Kinetics, so have survived the sun fever, a few of the lucky 16% (I believe it was). They are hated for surviving what kills nearly everyone else and have either very few or no family left. Sarah does what she can to help, and feels guilt for those she can't save. Ian is a janitor (very glamorous I know!) who is hiding something. The sun is sending deadly sun storms down to Earth, a large one is what caused the world to become as it is in the story, and there is always threat of more similar or worse. Sarah luckily has the power to predict the storms and Ian has the power to control the weather, but he's not sure if he can control a sun storm. I also enjoyed that this is a full short story, there is no prequel or sequels that tell more of the story. Since most books are series lately, it's nice to come across a stand alone. I really enjoyed this one!So that's the anthology, I definitely recommend it if you're a fan of dystopians. Not only are there three great and well written stories, but chances are you will find an new author to check out. I found two!
