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.

I honestly consider the audio version of any book better than the print version.
I absolutely love the stories that included the perverted pixie with the foul mouth. Very funny stuff.
This was the first time I heard Gavin.
No way!! I listen to it in sections over a couple of weeks. It was easy to do that because it is a book of short stories.
This type of book is not usually my cup of tea, but I was surprised at how much I ended up enjoying it.
If you love the Hollows books, this book is wonderful! It made me want to listen to other Kim Harrison books.
It is about the middle. I love science fiction. this is good, but I am not so into vampires!
This book has a little bit about all of our familiar characters Ivy,Rachel,Trent,Jenx, Al,and some new ones which normally are not so good stories,but Ms Harrison has out done herself here. I enjoyed all of her stories,and I can't say that about any other anthology I have ever listened to.
This is a book for any fan of the Hollows, and for those that do not know them this book will entice them to! I was thoroughly entertained for 20 hours and 6 minutes with Marguerite Gavin as the narrator, she is a terrific narrator! This book will help quench your thirst before the next Rachel Morgan Book comes out ; "EVER AFTER". JANUARY 22, 2013.
I loved all of the stories, and it helped fill in some of the holes in the other Rachel Morgan books. But I have to say the new stories were entertaining, fresh, and well written, the one with Penn, Meg, and her mother and grand mother really stand out for me. I would like hear more about what happens there.
Yes! It was very hard to put down, and get my other commitments met!!
I love audio books.
This fills in the story's between book.
I like her rendition of all the players in the book.
Biz and Jenks's adventure was a fun and great look into the pixy life.
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.
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.
I consider audiobooks better than print anyways so yes!
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!
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.
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!*
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.
Grace, in the last story - though she is not a Hollows character. I'd love to read more about her world!
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!
