Bad-Ass Faeries 2 – Just Plain Bad takes you to the circus with its bad ass Fae clown, The Harlequin, in the short story Bad Clown. The Harlequin has been hiding his true nature and is discovered a spy for the Unseelie, the Winter Court, while searching for the Cauldron of Plenty to tilt the scales in the war between the Seelie and the Unseelie. And, then you’re off to the creepy graveyard in the short and scary tale, Zwischenzug: A Pennidreadful Tale, with the terror inspiring ossuary Fae, Pennidreadful, and her human friend and funeral director, Vassili, - who we spent some time with in Bad Ass Faeries - as they try to beat death. Penni makes a bargain with another Fae monster to keep Vassili alive in an unusual way. Then, you find yourself on the back of a Harley in Within the Guardian Bell – another short story continuation from Bad Ass Faeries - with the sexy and frightful Halfling, Lance, as he fights the road and a multitude of blacktop gremlins with the ability to merge into one oily gremlin, Smear. Ride with Lance as he fights Smear and, by doing so, the Faerie King himself, to make his way back to his true love, Suzanne. You’ll wind up with Fae magick pulsing through your veins after reading this wonderful anthology! You’ll never look at faeries the same way again, and believe me, you won’t want to!

Bad-Ass Faeries 2 – Just Plain Bad fulfilled its promise in this thrilling novel…these guys are really just plain bad! This is another one I could hardly put down! This is a must read for all you Faerie lovers out there!
