Great collection of novellas and / but not all focused on Rachel! Ms. Harrison has allowed us to tag along with her as she explores other characters and we discover the 'woods' extend farther than the Hollows. Really enjoyed the change of pace! And, as always, Ms. Gavin brought each character off the page and gave a superb performance!
I love the audio edition of this book because I never have much time to actually read these days, but I spend hours driving. With the audio book, I get the stories I love and it's almost better than reading, because Marguerite Gavin's interpretation of Kim Harrison's work is so entertaining!
I loved getting the peeks into Ivy, Trent and Jenk's lives apart from Rachel's. I also loved learning about Rachel's first encounter with Pierce.
Until this book, I had only heard Marguerite Gavin perform Kim Harrison's "Hollows" stories. But this book had some other Kim Harrison stories and I was amazed as Gavin's ability to make those characters sound so completely different from the Hollows characters. She's quickly become one of my favorite audio book performers.
I definitely would!
Jenkins, he can fly
We got a look at most of the characters from the authors point of view and learned where the ideas for the characters came from.
Yes it was worth the listening time. want to know what happens next.
As always, waiting for the next book.
great stories . really glad she wrote these for the fans . i was about to give up on her until i got this .
I am a fifty-eight year old male who likes adventure, fantasy, science fiction and mysteries. Some of my favorite authors are J. R.R. Tolkin, Robert Hienlin, J. K. Rowling, Robert Jordan, Brandon Sanderson, Terry Brooks, Kim Harrison, Stephen King, and Faith Hunter just to name a few. I listen to my books while driving, riding my bike, and on my breaks at work.
It was really interesting to read what all Kim puts into a story before it goes to print. I would listen again just to absorb the characters and the influence on other works.
I would recommend this to a friend. Love the Kim Harrison and Marguerite Gavin combination. The stories filled some holes for me in the Hollows series. I read the novels but hadn't gotten to all the short stories and novellas. It was great having them all in one book. It was really entertaining.
Some of the stories are a little darker then I'm used to with Kim Harrison but I enjoyed them just as much as the happy ending stories. She is an excellent author and really knows how to capture the reader's attention.
I liked the story of Rachael and Pierce the best. It explained how she got into the IS and gave some insight about her childhood illness.
Jenks is always my favorite. I love the voice she does for him. I find it amazing that she can do so many unique voices.
Great addition to series
I liked how it helped flesh out the rest of the series, expanding upon what the other books left out. If you have read the others in this series you need to get this one. Get this after Pale Demon
She's did a good job.
This is a great series and this book is good after getting the rest of the series so it does not spoil any of the other books. Get this after Pale Demon.
We got to see more about the characters that we have grown to love.
For me it was when Al took Ceri. We really did not know that much about ceri and it was nice to know what happened before Rachel met her. I would like to know more about what she went through
Marguerite Gavin, really brings life to the characters. She adds a voice that helps the story in so many ways you feel as if you really know the characters.
If you thought you knew the whole story.... You have no idea
the over all background story of my favorite characters.
all of them, she is the only voice i can hear in my head as all the characters.
couple parts chocked me up, but mostly i was excited to hear what happens next.
i can not wait till EVER AFTER comes out.
I did not read the print version
I read Kim Harrison all the time
Most all of her audio books
