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!

    "Still lots of fun, but..."

    I've really been enjoying this series as a fun, not too deep, summer distraction. Even though the narrator makes the occasional pronunciation mistake in the previous books, I've enjoyed her performance overall. Living in Northern Michigan, however, I have a BIG problem with her narration of this novel. Since a lot of the story takes place on or near Mackinac Island, she really should have learned the correct pronunciation of the name. Mackinac is the French spelling, while Mackinaw is the English spelling, but both are pronounced the same way. Every time she said "Mackinack" instead of the correct pronunciation of "Mackinaw" I winced. And that was many, many times. So, if you're from Michigan, or just know what the correct pronunciation should be, you might want to read this installment instead of listen to it. It might save you some pain.

    "Distracting Narration"

    Narrator just couldn't seem to find the right timing for this read.....VERY distracting and frustrating, although the story is good.

    "My Fave Thus Far"

    Loved this one, really brings the relationship between Ivy and Rachel forward, explains the dynamics between them better from Ivy's perspective. If you love Jenks though, THIS is the one to read!!!

    "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.

    "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.

    "Another winner"

    I can't wait to see what happens next. A lot of "series " lack after the 3 or 4 the book. Kim is one that has not. Can't wait to hear them all.

    "Awesome BUT I am commenting on next book narrator"

    As usual the book and narrator say fantastic. No complaints from me. Then I go to the next book and it is a different narrator. What happened to Marquette Gavin????? I am half way and can not get use to her voice. It is very blah. Like some reading from a book with a monotone voice, no getting into characters, and all the names, places, and characters voices are sooooo different it is ruining it for me. Pascari name is read differently..... I am not a happy camper. Be forewarned listen to the sample. This really sucks I am so hooked on these books.

    What disappointed you about A Fistful of Charms?

    Just bad writing, if you are in middle school reading level... go for it.


    What was most disappointing about Kim Harrison’s story?

    Where do I begin, characters have no depths, everyone is boring and flat and the story has no good plots.


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

    Marguerite Gavin's performance just matches the story.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from A Fistful of Charms?

    All of it.
