JENKS!! Got to love a pixie that uses Tink (Tinkerbell) as a curse.
Rachel and Jenks hit the road in order to save one of Jenks’ sons. Oh and Nick (Pfft).
The last time Rachel saw Nick he was leaving town and wouldn’t tell her the whole reason he was leaving. Jenks’ son, Jax was living at Nick’s place to take care of his plants while he was out-of-town.
Jenks and the rest of his pixie family left the church that Rachel and Ivy share as their home because of a fight he and Rachel got into during the last book, Every Which Way but Dead. It’s been a long winter without the pixies around and Rachel is sick of Jenks not talking to her. So when they get word from Jax that Nick is missing and Jax needs help they drop their difference and hit the road to save them.
In true Rachel form this is no simple road trip. There are vampires and werewolves involved and Rachel fighting for her life but she has her trusty backup, Jenks. And Jenks is very much front and center in a big way.
We didn’t get to see of Trent this time about but my fingers are crossed that he will show up in the next installment, For a Few More Demons. Which that title has me a little nervous. I’m thinking we may get to see more of Al.
Rachel is a kick ass witch but at the same time she boarders on “too stupid to live” but in a funny and endearing way. With the help of her friends, Rachel learns why she makes some of the dumb choices in her personal life. And knowing is half the battle, right?
Jenks is a cocky and snarky pixie that’s always there for his partners Rachel and Ivy. He would die to save Rachel and his family. And I think he feels the same about Ivy but he hides it.
Ivy has it hard being stuck behind wanting to be Rachel’s friend and partner to wanting more from Rachel. Not to mention she is trying to fight off some personal demons.
Nick… is a turd and Rachel’s human ex-boyfriend.
Kisten is a sexy vamp who is dating Rachel and seems to really care for her. He is also Ivy’s ex and friend.
I’m not sure if it’s Gavin’s narration or Harrison’s writing that keeps me coming back. I think it’s a little of both. I can’t picture myself reading this series now that I’m hooked on Gavin’s voice for the series. She does an amazing job for all the characters. Her voice for Rachel and Jenks is the best.
JENKS!! One of the best secondary characters ever! And he summed up my feelings about Nick in this quote… “No one cares little green turds about you.”
Will I continue the series:
Hell ya! It gets better with each book. I’m really enjoying the snarky humor and the building relationships between the characters.
Audio books are just my cup of tea!
I am enjoying this series. But, this was by far the best book yet! In this one you learn what makes a lot of the main characters tick. Now if you have listened the the first 3 books in the series you may have figured Ivy and Rachel out. Well I hadn't! Even Kisten, Nick and Jenks surprised me a little.
Here's my recommendation, if you stopped at book two or three in the series it is worth it to make it to book 4!
The narrator Marguerite Gavin is wonderful. But I will say that the production quality was not great. At one point I had to double check that the speed was not at 2x.
I would say is definitely worth a credit!
Nothing like a great book when on the move.
I think this will have to be the end of the series for me...I just cannot take it. Rachel has outlasted my endurance for stupid. I enjoyed the storyline and the supporting cast of characters, but Rachel is like the talented kid in your family that decides to break the law for a living. At some point you turn away from the wreckage, this book is that point for me. :-(
One of My Favorite Authors would listen to this one again. I simply love her sense of humor.
The gang is off on an adventure: Rachel, Ivy, Janks, Jacks, and Nick. Rachel is in need of some stronger charms, bordering on black magic. Rachel and Janks experience transformations. There is really a lot of action that takes place in this book. I am relieved that there is none of the vamp seduction like there was in book 2. Janks provides tons of comedy. A powerful ancient item is up for grabs, who will be the finders/keepers? When finally arriving back home at the church, Kisten and Madelina are glad to have them back.
Yes it was entertaining. This far into the series however, it would be great if Rachel actually made some good decisions. Let us see her grow
Rachel never learns. Let her grow some please
The other Rachel Morgan books. She is very good performing this series.
Yes, One in which the statue is destroyed and the issue is put to rest.
I'm glad I waited to read this series because now I can read the books one after another and not have to wait. The latest installment in the series is full of action and suspense. It spends a lot of time on Rachel's character- her evolving magical abilities , her evolving relationship with Ivy and an introspective look at her motivations. There is a look into the werewolf culture in Rachel's world. Now that she is working with a werewolf, I imagine werewolves will become a bigger part of future plots. Nick is back. This time we meet the real Nick. I won't give away any spoilers but I was really disappointed. I was very happy the Rachel remained strong and true to herself throughout the book. I hope Nick makes another appearance in the future. I would like to know the trouble he is in, as long as Rachel stays out of it. This book had many twist and turns. When I thought it was about to end, something would go wrong and there would be a new twist. I have to say I enjoyed this book and have already bought the next book.
I have enjoyed the series but this book became one long whine about how nothing can go right for the main character and how she hates her life. Even cool things that happen are met with a pissy attitude. I am moving on to a main character that doesn't bitch about everything.
Yes, definately if the reviews were good, and it was narratted by Marguerite Gavin. I love her narration. I am starting to become disapointed after reading this book and not sure if I am going to get another of the hollows series. I am ready to read some other books. I definately agreed with many reviewers who recommended the first three.. I feel they are terrific and great of this series.
She could have included more of Kisten, demon Al, and writing off Nick was apparently evident. Nick started the series as an extremely nice guy, then off he leaves in the last book, and in this one, he becomes a real jerk. I did enjoy the partnership of Rachel and Jenks, even if she oogled him a bit too much. Also, the weres didn't make it for me along the plot. It becomes apparent that Kim wants Rachel's character to have more enchanting loves in her life, or open the door for Kisten or Ivy in her love triangle.
I love her connection with all the charactors, and thier personalities. I say that I cringed everytime when she read "MackinacK", not MackinaW several times in the book.
Perhaps, especially being a Michigan native, and visiting Mackinaw every summer, this could be an endless playing movie in an Imax theater up in Northern Michigan. Kim's inclusion in the book with the mighty Mac bridge, her describing the sites area of Mackinaw Mich and the islands, and mention of the "fudgies" made me chuckle. I am surprised that they haven't started selling this book all the gift shops in and around the tourist district.
It would appear that Rachel likes a heterosexual lifestyle, and Kim writes it safe between her and Kisten. Only brief teasing sequences between Ivy and Rachel which seems to me that Kim isn't truly prepared to make the Rachel the witch and Ivy the vampire lovers quite yet. Is she afraid that readers will respond negatively to such lesbian scenes?
