Five new, previously unpublished, original stories of the smoldering dynamics found between noble, honorable, well-meaning superheroes and their provocative nemeses. With Sophie Mouette, Raven Kaldera, and others.

Review by: Voice Spider on June 09, 2012 :
After reading the first volume in this series I was hoping for another like it. Though the idea of erotic super villains is an exciting one, this collection was actually a let down. Out of the five stories in this anthology, I only fond two to be erotic and to play upon the villain and hero. The other stories only seemed to brush upon the subject rather than include it into the themes of their stories.

'Pow! Bash! Yes, Yes!' and 'Those Who Favor Fire' are easily the best stories in this collectio...more After reading the first volume in this series I was hoping for another like it. Though the idea of erotic super villains is an exciting one, this collection was actually a let down. Out of the five stories in this anthology, I only fond two to be erotic and to play upon the villain and hero. The other stories only seemed to brush upon the subject rather than include it into the themes of their stories.

'Pow! Bash! Yes, Yes!' and 'Those Who Favor Fire' are easily the best stories in this collection and are the two I mentioned above. Both contain the right amount of eroticism and character development. Each story's pacing was well done and the writing was excellent. As for the other stories in the anthology, they just seemed to fall flatter than these two. Either through jerky pacing such as in 'Bridge Over Shifter's Chasm', or the over wordy nature of 'Invisible Touch', the other stories just don't reach the same peak.

That is not to say the other stories aren't bad. They are actually fairly hot in their own right, and even ones meant to make you think ('Bridge Over Shifter's Chasm') manage to find some heat in their lines, even with all the weird sex. They bridge a lot of stranger topics than the first anthology tackled, and it fits well with the villain theme of this collection. But due to the things mentioned above, they just didn't reach the same level as the initial anthology did.

So if you like super heroes, I suggest this anthology. If you already got the first anthology, I suggest you pick this one up as well. But if you are looking for a good spank book, pick the first anthology up first collection first, or go looking elsewhere.
