Publisher's Summary

To save the lives of her friends, Rachel did the unthinkable: she willingly trafficked in forbidden demon magic. And now her sins are coming home to haunt her.

As Rachel searches for the truth behind a terrifying murder, an even greater menace threatens, for the demon Algaliarept will stop at nothing to claim her, and the discovery of a shocking family secret throws Rachel's entire life into question. If she is ever to live free, Rachel must first walk willingly into the demonic ever-after in search of long-lost ancient knowledge.

But when you dance with demons, you lay your soul on the line...and there are some lines that should never be crossed.

    "New narrator"
    What made the experience of listening to The Outlaw Demon Wails the most enjoyable?

    The story


    What didn’t you like about Gigi Bermingham’s performance?

    It would be truly pleasant if new narrators would listen to at least one of the books in the series before recording their version. It was difficult to get through this book with the main character names being pronounced differently.

    "Hate this Narrators Version"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes and No... By the 5th book you are probably hooked into the story and are like me... someone who will suffer through. You should be warned!!! The way the names are pronounced differently and the tone the characters are given are much different than the books before and after this one.


    What other book might you compare The Outlaw Demon Wails to and why?

    Jenks usually is, but he just came off extreamly annoying in this book.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Gigi Bermingham?

    NO! NO! NO!Don't mix it up in book 5 unless the narriator does their homework to flow with the first four! Hearing different pronciations of words and different tones from characters was very distracting.

    "OMG - the narrator!"
    Where does The Outlaw Demon Wails rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is a great series which I have really enjoyed - love the character development, in particular the evolution of Rachel in learning to accept that life is not black and white and there is a lot of gray in between.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Gigi Bermingham?

    ANYONE! I was aghast at Gigi Bermingham's narration of this story. First, why would you have ever considered changing narrator's in the middle of the series? Second, did she not even bother to listen to previous narrations so at the very least she would have the same pronouncation of names/ titles/ect.as the previous narrators. THANK you for bringing back the original narrator as I don't think I could have listened to one more of Gigi's narrations.

    "Should have read the reviews..."
    Any additional comments?

    Listen to the sample before you buy this audiobook! I didn't take the time to look at the narrator or read the reviews, I just assumed it was Marguerite Gavin since she did the rest of them. Not only does this narrator not fit the characters (she sounds way too young and just isn't very good) but the quality of the recording is very poor. This was the only book in the series I hadn't purchased as an audiobook and I got it to complete my collection (I have the physical book) and now I wish I would have just saved my credits.

    Its hard to switch readers in the middle of a series but I thought Gigi did an admirable job. I think she even did Rachel's sarcasm better and I laughed out loud. I'm even a guy!

    "Where was Marguerite Gavin?"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Love the book but the performance was terrible. Gigi did mispronounced character names and voices were really annoying. I LOVE Kim Harrison and this is a fantastic book but sadly it was the biggest let down in performance.


    What didn’t you like about Gigi Bermingham’s performance?

    Hell NO!

    What did you love best about The Outlaw Demon Wails?

    Loved the plot twist


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

    Rachael and Quinn


    Any additional comments?

    Is there an unwritten rule that once a series is successful; the publisher has to try to mess it up by using a terrible narrator? This is a very good book, part of a great series, but listening while the names of all of the characters are mangled becomes very annoying. Luckily the story was so good, I had to continue listening.

    "Good Story; distracting performance"

    I'm only a 1/4 of the way into the story and have become distracted by the nuances of a different narrator. The voice doesn't match the personna i have in my head for Rachel, she has more of a whiney feeling in this one. Frequently used names (Piscary) and magic terms (ley line being one of them) are pronounced differently from previous recordings . Its frequent enough that a frown comes to my face every time. I think had this been the intitial narrator, I don't think I would have continued the series. I'm glad the orginal narrator is returned to after this blip in the series.

    Story
    "Secrets Revealed!!!"

    The good: The story itself was a 5 star easy. This is one of the best books in the series so far. The story uncovers some secrets about Rachel that was totally unexpected (for me anyway) but totally make sense now and I could see where they can be used and were necessary for the series to grow. Rachel grows up a little in this book, but her habit of doing the wrong things for the right reasons is still a big part of her.

    The ugly: The only problem with this book was the narrator. Not that it was bad enough to make you want to put it down and read the book; but it wasn't good either. Once you get used to a 'voice' of a series and then mid-stride that 'voice' changes...it really throws you for a loop. The main problem with the narrator was the mispronunciation of words from the previous books. It took me forever to figure out that 'Pis-ca-REE' was actually 'Pis-Car-EE'. Then 'Ta-Ka-Ta' was pronouced 'Tak-a-Ta', a 'lay' line was pronouced like 'lee' line, etc. I understand that one person may not be able to narrate an entire series, they have other obligations. However, if a narrator has to change, they should at least listen to the one of the previous audiobooks to see how words are pronounced in previous versions. Also, her voice for Jenks was too high in pitch, he sounded like a Chippette.
