    For centuries, the woods have been a pivotal part of the wonder and danger of fairy tales, for once you enter anything can happen. Elves, druids, fairies - who knows what you will find once you dare step into the forest?

    And now, New York Times best-selling author Kim Harrison ventures into these mysterious, hidden lands of magic and mystery in her first short-story collection. Into the Woods brings together an enchanting mix of brand-new, never-before-published stories and tales from Harrison's beloved, best-selling Hollows series.

    What disappointed you about Into the Woods?

    It is devoid of literary quality. It's about as engaging as a Harlequin Romance so if you like that kind of book "Into the Woods" is for you.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    The book of Ruth.


    What didn’t you like about Marguerite Gavin’s performance?

    Just not a style I enjoy. She seemed to be trying too hard to bring some drama to the stories.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Into the Woods?

    The entire book. This is the first audio book I didn't finish.


    Any additional comments?

    Perhaps the target audience is much younger - like early teens. I guess the author jumped on the vampire band wagon, which is not my cup of tea. I should have paid more attention to the description ... I thought it would be an assortment of thrillers rather than multiple repetitions of the same theme.
