Limbus, Inc. - Book II Kindle Edition
How lucky do you feel?
That question echoed through the world’s underground, scrawled on bathroom walls, spray-painted across subway tunnel exits, written on paper that fluttered through bleak side-streets in the winter wind, printed on cheap business cards tacked to corkboard displays in darkened hallways. But always beneath one name—Limbus.
Matthew Sellers revealed the truth of Limbus, Inc. to the world, and in his tales of time travelers, intergalactic beings, and human sacrifice, he thought he had told it all. But the story of the shadowy employment agency that operates on the edge of the abyss, always finding the perfect person for the perfect job—no matter what the cost—had only begun.
This shared-world anthology continues the story of Limbus, Inc., as told by five masters of horror, fantasy, and science fiction. But beware, for once you learn the truth of Limbus, Inc., your world will never be the same. So it's time to ask yourself . . .
How lucky do you feel?

Since other reviewers delved into a summary of each story, I'll focus on my experience. The two books are similar but different. The similarity is in the concept, idea of the book, Limbus' motto, and their twisted approach to employ people. However, book 2 is more structured, perhaps because of the connecting thread. It's also darker, with more violence. Limbus 2 is gritty at times but it gets the reader involved in the lives of the men down on their luck and alcoholic, who lost everything in their lives (except for the last story).
Like with any anthology, some stories are stronger than others. For me the ones that stood out were:
- Zero at the Bone by Harry Shannon: Shannon's smooth storytelling will take you on a ride as you follow Snake's journey to finally reach what he wanted...to forget it all. I was ready for my heart to break by the end, and the author didn't disappoint, except it broke in a good way.
- Three Guys walk into a Bar by Jonathan Maberry: I'll start by admitting that I'm a big Joe Ledger fan. In my book, Joe can't go wrong even when he's wrong. And his sense of humor! Maberry delivers cut throat dialogs, scene cuts, and storyline that's more action oriented than the rest. It felt right for this story to be the last one in the anthology.
There's cussing, violence, and some politically incorrect statements in this book. If you don't mind any of these, please go ahead and read it.
I started with book 2, I am going back to get book 1. I am hoping there will be more to follow.
Out of all the stories, my favorite character is Sam Hunter. I liked the idea of his tale, and the humor in the telling. He is one character I wish I could read more about.
If they do another anthology I know I'll read that one too.
The first volume was just so much fun. The authors took it a little darker this time but still worth the read.
