Publisher's Summary

The evil night things that prowl Cincinnati despise witch and bounty-hunter Rachel Morgan. Her new reputation for the dark arts is turning human and undead heads alike with the intent to possess, bed, and kill her - not necessarily in that order.

Now a mortal lover who abandoned Rachel has returned, haunted by his secret past. And there are those who covet what Nick possesses - savage beasts willing to destroy the Hollows and everyone in it if necessary.

Forced to keep a low profile or eternally suffer the wrath of a vengeful demon, Rachel must nevertheless act quickly. For the pack is gathering for the first time in millennia to ravage and to rule. Suddenly, more than Rachel's soul is at stake.

And hear more from the Rachel Morgan series!

    "My favorite by far!"

    I picked up the first book on a lark and have now listened to all six back to back. Whew! This is an addicting series & "Fistful" is my favorite of them all. The story is fastpaced and taunt; I couldn't put it down. The dynamic between Rachel and the other characters is really enjoyable. The tension between Ivy and Rachel has me in knots!! I've become an "Adrenaline Junkie" by way of my addiction to these darn audios. And Ms. Gavin is fantastic as narrator. I wish she narrated #6! In fact, I'm listening to this one again & enjoying Gavin all the more for having missed her interpretation in #6.

    Story
    "Jenks!!"

    First Thought(s):
    JENKS!! Got to love a pixie that uses Tink (Tinkerbell) as a curse.

    The Plot:
    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.

    The Characters:
    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.

    The Narration:
    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.

    Final Thought(s):
    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.

    "love the story except..."

    I like the entire story especially Janx but it is getting a little weird between Rachael and Ivy and the direction it is going.

    "Thoroughly Entertaining !"
    Would you consider the audio edition of A Fistful of Charms to be better than the print version?

    Not having read the print version it would be unfair to comment; i am a fan of the author, the Hollows story and characters are inviting, exciting and come to life during the reading. I will be reading the next instalment.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    This book allowed the readers to learn of the deeper traits of many characters. I couldn't possibly pick a favorite.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The island werewolf encampment, the bridge scene and the return to the hollows were possibly my favourites. I couldn't stop - every free moment a reached for it.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The relationship between Rachel, Ivy and Jinxs. The scenes unfolding throughout gave deeper glimpses into their dynamics.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't stop !!

    "Action from Start to Finish!"

    I feel like the series really hit it stride with this book. Where the first few books felt a little slow in spots, this one was action all the way through. A lot happened, and while the relationships still feel a little over-dramatic at times, I'm enjoying the development of the characters. Looking forward to the next one!

    "Jenks"

    Jenks is quickly becoming my favorite character in this series and the narrator does a fabulous job delivering his snarky, sarcastic comments.
    It was nice to see Jenks interactions with his son.

    "BEST BOOK YET!!!!"

    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!

    Story
    "Oh Curses (pun intended)"

    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.
