Publisher's Summary

Enter the woods...if you dare.

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.

The tales here include an original Hollows novella, "Million-Dollar Baby", about Trent Kalamack's secret elven quest in Pale Demon; two original short stories, "Pet Shop Boys" and "Temson Woods," that explore just what happens when humanity and the supernatural collide; and two novelettes, "Spider Silk" and "Grace," set in new worlds of imagination and adventure. Into the Woods also contains all of the previously published Hollows short stories - together in one volume for the very first time.

Step into the woods and discover the magic for yourself.

    "some of these short stories really good"

    Some of these short stories help fill in the blanks on Rachel and Jenks in Kim Harrison's Hollows series. Other stories are totally unrelated, with some being very good and others harder to get into. I bought it for the Hollows stories and it is well worth those.

    "Something for Everyone!"

    This collection of stories has not only missing pieces in the Rachel Morgan series, but other intriguing stories as well. A great book: even for those who haven't been introduced to Rachel yet!

    Story
    "Personally not a favorite"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I am not sure what could be changed. I think this is just a personal choice issue. I did not like the format with the mishmash of stories and was surprisingly disappointed with this listen. A few stories were OK to fill in some blanks, but generally I felt these were just some left over stories that got cut from the books.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Just finished listening to Ever After. That was much more like what I am used to from Kim Harrison. That one I would give 5 stars.


    What does Marguerite Gavin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She brings the Hollows books to life. I have read and listened to many of Kim Harrison's books books and it is far more enjoyable to listen to her interpretation.


    Could you see Into the Woods being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    The question does not make sense since these were short stories.

    Story
    "This helped with my Rachel Morgan fix."
    Would you listen to Into the Woods again? Why?

    Yes. There are several short stories in this collection, and each one takes you deeper into various characters.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Into the Woods?

    I really enjoyed finding out how Trent and Janx snatched Lucy. It was a wonderful insight into Trent's character. I also loved Janx teaching Jamoke how to be a runner. His thoughts about his failings with Jax and his interactions with Madalina brought tears to my eyes.


    What does Marguerite Gavin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Marguerite Gavin does a wonderful job with the narration. Most of the characters have very distinct voices, and she adds just enough wit and sarcasm to bring the characters to life.

    "Don't bother"

    Really. After faithfully following this series for about 4 or 5 books I've finally given up. There is one interesting story in this one, about Al, and that's it. Marguerite Gavin is brilliant as always, as for the story....

    "Good reveiw"

    Most of the back-stories I knew, but good detail. I love the story of how Trent got Lucy, totally help me like his character, never seen what Rachel seen in him until he became a father.

    Story
    "Great Kim Harrison."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Now this is more like the Kim Harrison I like. More like a 4 1/2 star book. The fill in the gap story's of Harrison's hollows series are 5 star and very enjoyable.
    this collection of stories are worth every Penney you pay for book.

    Wouldn't mind seeing a couple of the last stories in the book become their own series just to see how they develop.

    If you like the hollows books this is defiantly one to read.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Fills in the blanks in hollow series plus a couple totally new/different stories.


    Which character – as performed by Marguerite Gavin – was your favorite?

    She does great job. The pixies.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Very enjoyable. Some of the pixie comments will make you laugh


    Any additional comments?

    If you like the hollow series. Buy this book.

    "Just couldn't get into to it."

    I have read all the Hollows series, they are one of my favorite series. But I just couldn't get into this book. I will look forward to the next book to come out.

    "Great Series!"
    Where does Into the Woods rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Great collection of novellas and / but not all focused on Rachel! Ms. Harrison has allowed us to tag along with her as she explores other characters and we discover the 'woods' extend farther than the Hollows. Really enjoyed the change of pace! And, as always, Ms. Gavin brought each character off the page and gave a superb performance!
