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.

    "A Great collection of short stories"

    The collection contains 11 short stories. Some are offshoots and back stories to the Hollows series. Some are stand alone. I have read all The Hollow’s books and found that I very much enjoyed spending more time with some of the characters. Most who look into this book will have been drawn to it because they are Hollow fans, but I truly think a reader would enjoy the stories even if you have never read the Hollows series. I would predict that soon after that same reader would be hooked on the series. Marguerite Gavin is a great narrator and makes listening to the books very enjoyable. Kim Harrison embodies her writing with good plots, exciting stories, some romance and great characters. This holds true throughout this anthology.

    Story
    "got me back into reading the hollows again!"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I was pleasantly surprised with the writer, reader and story overall.


    Would you recommend Into the Woods to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would mostly recommend this particular book of shorts to people who are already reading the hollows series the only reason I really say that is because some of the stories would be confusing if read before starting the series. as some of the shorts contain characters that aren't in all of the hollows books.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Marguerite Gavin?

    I was impressed with the reader especially liking the voice she chose for the infamous pixie Jenks.a good voice match for a good character.


    Did Into the Woods inspire you to do anything?

    I picked up this gem of a read for a change in pace when things started to get a little too slow paced for me in the hollows series. hoping that the shorts would pack just enough concentrated punch to encourage me to go back to reading the hollows series at great length ... and it had me doing just I am now on book seven of the series and that is pretty good because i was two books behind that only a couple weeks before.

    "THIS IS A MUST FOR HOLLOW FANS"
    Any additional comments?

    This was a great listen. It was the only short story collection that I really enjoyed! The back ground on some of the characters as well as the other short stories were great! This makes the series, it brings it all together!
    Kim Harrison is a great story teller and Marguerite Gavin is one of my favorite narrators.
    If you like the Hollows you have to listen to this!

    "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.
