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.

    Story
    "Poor Narration"
    Would you try another book from Kim Harrison and/or Gigi Bermingham?

    Kim yes, Gigi NO! After listening to multiple books in this series, a new narrator is brought in that made NO attempt to be consistent with the prior one. I'm SOOOOO glad that Gigi only read one book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The continuing adventures of Rachel Morgan.


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

    The original narrator. Or at least someone that listened to her and tried to keep it consistent.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes

    "Love the Book"

    Love the book. Hate the Narrator. SHe doesn't pronounce words correctly and I do not like her voice changes for characters. The Original narrator for the series is awesome.
    Ley line is pronounced LAY Line, NOT Lee Line. ANd she didn't pronounce a couple of character names correctly. Book itself is great!

    Story
    "The Worst...Narration, Accents; Best Series!"
    What did you like best about The Outlaw Demon Wails? What did you like least?

    The story is awesome! I decided to listen to the series since I've read through it a few times. Why the heck did Harrison choose to use Gigi the Horrible and Harper Collins to do this novel? The music played at random times, not at the start of new chapters, was extremely distracting. Also, Gigi Bermingham should have listened to the previous recordings or gotten some type of clue about pronunciations: Takata, Ley lines, Dulciate, etc. That was a huge distraction as well. This would have provided some sort of continuity for those who've been listening to the audiobooks! Her voice and her accents are just terrible.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Rachel Morgan, of course!


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

    Pronunciations, timbre of her voice, and her narrow range of accents are all horrible.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes, as long as Gigi Bermingham has nothing to do with it.

    Story
    "+1 Billion on the Bad Narration"
    If you could sum up The Outlaw Demon Wails in three words, what would they be?

    I originally bounced back and forth between audio and ebooks to follow the Rachel Morgan series. This year I decided to revisit the series from book one on audiobook only and listen straight through. I have been loving it until this book.

    I hate it when the narrator is changed during a series because it messes with the continuity of character I have in my head. This narrator change has been the worst I've come across yet. I'm sure Gigi Bermingham is a very nice person and I might love anything else she has narrated but she was the wrong person to step into this series.

    I was on a long drive from Las Vegas back to Los Angeles when I finished the previous book and started this one. I was so jarred that I almost skipped it (this was previously a paper book read). It was a less entertaining 4 hour drive. Don't get me wrong the story is great but the narration really gets in the way.

    As just about everyone else has said, the different pronunciations of often used words and character names kept pulling me out of the story. I found myself yelling the "correct" (previously established pronunciations) at my speakers/headphones in frustration.

    I too would happily re-purchase this audiobook if it were re-recorded with Ms. Gavin.

    Story
    "Gigi ruined this for me."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I recommend the book but if you have listened to the others with Gavin as the narrator do not listen to this one. It will forever taint your image of Harrison's books. I loved the others nararrated by Gavin and I am glad Harrison has gone back to her. From the moment Bermingham's high whiny voice started I cringed. Had the director not listened to the other books? It took me a few times to realize the butchering of Takata's name and what Bermingham was trying to get across. I used the double time feature on my iPod and listeded to this fast. I couldn't stand to waste the credit but couldn't listen to her butcher Piscary and Takatas names. Why didn't Kim Harrison listen to this and say WAIT, you have to say the names the same!!!!!


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot of this book did but I was so annoyed with the nararator I couldn't get into the book.


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

    HANDS DOWN Marguerite Gavin


    Do you think The Outlaw Demon Wails needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    All of Harrison's books need follow ups.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish I had read reviews and realized spending my credits on another book would have been more worth it. If I weren't such a Harrison fan this would have turned me off to all her future books in this series.

    "Good Story.......but"

    Ok a good story but the narrator has a voice better suited to a teen novel and not a character that is in her late twenties.

    "New Narrator -- Disappointment!"

    I have been reading this series and was really into it, util this narrator. It is obvious she didn't do her homework or even listen to the last performer. She mispronounces many of the words and doesn't read with the same attitude as the previous reader. It is hard to get used to and changes the whole character... I am sorely disappointed!

    "Gigi is terrible and lazy"
    What disappointed you about The Outlaw Demon Wails?

    Poor narration


    Would you be willing to try another one of Gigi Bermingham???s performances?

    No


    You didn???t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Good story


    Any additional comments?

    If you are going to narrate a book have the courtesy to listen to the previous books narration so you dont mangle the pronunciation of things like people's names. Basic stuff here Gigi.

    "Story's excellent...narrator is reading in a can"

    I much prefer Gavin as a narrator, Bermingham doesn't give the character's much personality. She also sounds like she's reading through a tin can, hollow and muffled. It isn't enough for me to not purchase another Kim Harrison audio book, but nearly so. I was SO happy to see that Gavin is back for the next three books.
