I'm reading the whole series, the characters are addictive. My problem is that Rachel is a flaming idiot. I spend half the time yelling at her or thinking that she really deserves to die for making such inane choices. I love Ivy, Janks and the rest - but be warned; your favorite characters in this series are not safe. People do die in some of the books.
Horibal narrator. The story could be a good one but the narration was so boring I found my self after ten minuts of listening rewinding the book because I had stopped paying attention. It took me three times starting it till I could get into it at all. The only reason I keeped listing to it is because I had already bought book number two and did not want to through my money away for two books. But I even got to the end of the book and did not want to through away any more of my time so I stopped the book with over an hr left. Just flat out did not care how it ended.
I wish I could get my money back so bad. I have over 100 books I have listened to this year and nothing is close to being this bad so I had to wright a review. Please take my advice and don't get this book.
I am almost finshed with the 3rd book in this series and I am enjoying them very much. The story/plot lines are really well developed as are the characters. I like the difference in this series from other 'fantasy/otherworld' type seriers as there is actually a plot and a story and its not just boy meets girl, boy looses girl, bad thing happens, boy gets girl back. There is some romantic interest through the first 3 books, but it is NOT the story itself. Mystery and wondering what is going to happen next is what keeps you hooked on this series. Plus (and always my favorite) there are just some laugh out loud moments as the main character who seems to have it together, doesn't...always have it together...even though she's a redhead she can have some great blonde moments.
The narrator of this series is also very good, she really puts a voice to the characters that keeps you interested and also helps you distinguish who is actually talking, where some female narrators have issues with mens voices as they all sound alike, Ms. Gavin does really well.
An avid listener of audio books.
I must say it took me a bit of time to get into the book but once I did I really enjoyed it. At first I couldn't wrap my head around a little pixie sitting on a witch's shoulder but once I did I found the characters funny, likable and very entertaining. It also took me a bit of time to enjoy the narrator. I didn't like her at first but I soon found her performance enjoyable and I thought she did a great job on this book and subsequently the whole series.
Since discovering audible I have become an avid "reader" I have been able to read more books than I ever thought possible, as I am dyslexic. I love self help, thrillers, sc-fi, so much more.
Great story line good performance
The demon attack
She brings you into the story with feeling in her voice
Why yes, I do frequently burst out in song!
The Narrator, Marguerite Gavin. The fluctuation in tones and myriad of accents are what give the characters wings. Both my husband and I will be sitting there laughing so hard at some of the antics and we love the twists and turns the story takes all the while maintaining continuity to the series. Rachael, Jenks and Ivy have been given 'form' by Ms. Gavins vocal talents. LOL... Jenks has introduced a new selection of 'expletives' in our house... GREAT LISTEN... Kim Harrison's storytelling and Ms Gavin acting are an excellent combination!
A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness was the book that hooked us in this genre of AudioBook.. I keep looking for the next book, but alas it is not out yet. Love Jennifer Ikeda's voice.So, in the interim, we found Kin Harrison and Marguerite Gavin, and what a delightful find it was.. Thanks.
In my minds eye: in Trents office as Rachael languishes back as a mink and her attempts to communicate with chits and chirps. It does make me wonder if Trent actually does enjoy her company.Oh yes, and it is hard to nail this down, but Jenks has a delightful way of swearing, that is not offensive and quite amusing. And his version of the Twelve Days of Christmas.. LMAO. Or was that in the White Witch Black Curse.. sorry.. I have enjoyed all, so far.

Wish book #6 - The Outlaw Demon Wails - was narrated by Ms. Gavin. Changing narrators in mid series does not maintain continuity or fluidity of the characters. I have listened to the audio sample, haven't purchased book 6.
I live on the Gulf of Mexico and I love to listen and walk the day away along God's beautiful grace.
Love this series, I love Ms. Gavin narration of the people in the book, I love Jenks the best, he is a hoot.. and Ms. Gavin's voice fits him to just what image he looks like and would talk like,"for Tink's sake" LOL..
this is a wonderful series to listen to....... BUT BE WARNED....... Book 6 has a totally different narrator, and it sucked... buy the paperback instead, save yourself $$
otherwise all the books are good..
I love books, it's my great escape.
This book is totally awsome. This was the first Kim Harrison book I got on audible and I was hooked. The books in this series just get better and better.
I disagree with those who said Marguerite Gavin was difficult to listen to. She was entertaining and did female / male Dialogue extremely well. I enjoyed the books and Marguerite. I downloaded book 6 'the outlaw demon wails' from my local library - now that was the worst narator I've ever listen too! Gigi Bermingham! Try that one and you'll see what I mean!
Paranormal-urban fantasy book lover!
Yes. Marguerite Gavin does a great job with the voices.
Hmm... Jinx, he's so funny and cocky for such a little guy.
I wasn't sure about this series at first, it seemed like it took Gavin a while before she hit her stride with the characters voices. I am happy I gave it a chance though because I have all the books in this series now and love them.
