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.

    "Great Anthology"

    Overall, this was a very good anthology. I totally enjoyed the Hollows shorts, some of which I'd read before, and enjoyed most of the rest of the stories. I would especially like to see more in the world of the last story. I absolutely loved the story about Kisten and Rachel, mainly because I miss that character in the series. I didn't care too much about the story Temson Estates mainly because I don't think there was really much of a plot. Marguerite Gavin did a fantastic job as always and was as consistent with the character voices as she is in the series.

    Story
    "Interesting if you're already a fan"

    The short stories fill in some blanks, expand some characters. Overall, only worthwhile if you are a Hollows fan.
    The intros by the author at the beginning of each story are unnecessary and detract from the enjoyment. Either the story stands on its own or it doesn't. If the author feels the need to explain the story, it shouldn't be there.

    Story
    "Thank You so very much!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Into the Woods to be better than the print version?

    I consider audiobooks better than print anyways so yes!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Rachael is always my favorite character! Oh wait.. i meant Trent, noo Ivy... errr.. Jenks! I love Kistin! Oh hell, i dont know. I love them all!


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

    Marguerites cadence and manner of which she reads this entire series is so unique. She really brings a different life to each character she portrays.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is so satisfying! Its wonderful and thrilling to have the back stories of these characters! It makes me love and understand them all the more. Thank you Kim! *Bunny-eared Kiss Kiss!*

    "A must for Hollows fans"
    Where does Into the Woods rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's a nice addition to the Hollows series, as it is a series of short stories that correlate to the books. It's especially good for Jenks fans as the two stories featuring him are quite poignant.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Grace, in the last story - though she is not a Hollows character. I'd love to read more about her world!

    If you could sum up Into the Woods in three words, what would they be?

    Spectacular! Interesting! Entertaining!

    My Fave was Million Dollar Baby! And I loved the last story Grace....but I really liked all of them!!


    Have you listened to any of Marguerite Gavin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    All the Rachel books, and I love her!!

    The banshee story really touched me and Ivy's....and lots of this book made me laugh...Kim Harrison has a delightful sense of humor...

    "Great Short Stories!"

    I was so jonesing for some Hollows stories and Kim Harrison. These stories were great! I loved every one of them.

    Of course, Marguerite Gavin brings so very much to the book with her unbelievable narration.

    If you, too, are fans of The Hollows AND Kim Harrison, you will truly enjoy this!

    "Not sure that I would have given any stars!"
    What disappointed you about Into the Woods?

    Everything ....from story, to narrative. THE WORST Audible I have ever downloaded, couldn't make it pas Chapter 4/ part 1...Don't bother! And I listen to at least one book a week, often two!


    What was most disappointing about Kim Harrison’s story?

    The story


    Would you be willing to try another one of Marguerite Gavin’s performances?

    Hmmmm, not sure....The book was so awful it might have swayed my review


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Into the Woods?

    All

    Story
    "Drivel"
    What disappointed you about Into the Woods?

    It is devoid of literary quality. It's about as engaging as a Harlequin Romance so if you like that kind of book "Into the Woods" is for you.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    The book of Ruth.


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

    Just not a style I enjoy. She seemed to be trying too hard to bring some drama to the stories.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Into the Woods?

    The entire book. This is the first audio book I didn't finish.


    Any additional comments?

    Perhaps the target audience is much younger - like early teens. I guess the author jumped on the vampire band wagon, which is not my cup of tea. I should have paid more attention to the description ... I thought it would be an assortment of thrillers rather than multiple repetitions of the same theme.
