Publisher's Summary

The evil night things that prowl Cincinnati despise witch and bounty-hunter Rachel Morgan. Her new reputation for the dark arts is turning human and undead heads alike with the intent to possess, bed, and kill her - not necessarily in that order.

Now a mortal lover who abandoned Rachel has returned, haunted by his secret past. And there are those who covet what Nick possesses - savage beasts willing to destroy the Hollows and everyone in it if necessary.

Forced to keep a low profile or eternally suffer the wrath of a vengeful demon, Rachel must nevertheless act quickly. For the pack is gathering for the first time in millennia to ravage and to rule. Suddenly, more than Rachel's soul is at stake.

And hear more from the Rachel Morgan series!

    "Excellent and entertaining!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
    If you could sum up A Fistful of Charms in three words, what would they be?

    Exciting, enthralling, superb!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Fistful of Charms?

    oh it was sad when Rachel and David get hit by the Mac truck....she held his hand, and was there for him so selflessly....I cried!


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

    The Rachel books...shes good, really good!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    A witch, a pixie and a vampire walk into a bar....lol


    Any additional comments?

    Great series, I will be reading number 5 soon!

    Story
    "Still lots of fun, but..."

    I've really been enjoying this series as a fun, not too deep, summer distraction. Even though the narrator makes the occasional pronunciation mistake in the previous books, I've enjoyed her performance overall. Living in Northern Michigan, however, I have a BIG problem with her narration of this novel. Since a lot of the story takes place on or near Mackinac Island, she really should have learned the correct pronunciation of the name. Mackinac is the French spelling, while Mackinaw is the English spelling, but both are pronounced the same way. Every time she said "Mackinack" instead of the correct pronunciation of "Mackinaw" I winced. And that was many, many times. So, if you're from Michigan, or just know what the correct pronunciation should be, you might want to read this installment instead of listen to it. It might save you some pain.

    "Distracting Narration"

    Narrator just couldn't seem to find the right timing for this read.....VERY distracting and frustrating, although the story is good.

    "Great fun"

    This is the first time that I can write that I enjoyed the audio versions of this series more than reading the books themselves. The narrator is perfect. When reading on my own, the sarcasm and wit does not come as clear as when this narrator, Marguerite Gavin, reads the emotions and humor into the words. I've listened to every book in the series except the last one (because they switched the narrator) merely because I loved her reading.

    This story, and all the previous, are very funny and are an original slant on the paranormal/romance genre. The pixies, the vamps and of course, the witch/demon Rachel Morgan are loads of fun.

    Story
    "Jenks!!"

    First Thought(s):
    JENKS!! Got to love a pixie that uses Tink (Tinkerbell) as a curse.

    The Plot:
    Rachel and Jenks hit the road in order to save one of Jenks’ sons. Oh and Nick (Pfft).

    The last time Rachel saw Nick he was leaving town and wouldn’t tell her the whole reason he was leaving. Jenks’ son, Jax was living at Nick’s place to take care of his plants while he was out-of-town.

    Jenks and the rest of his pixie family left the church that Rachel and Ivy share as their home because of a fight he and Rachel got into during the last book, Every Which Way but Dead. It’s been a long winter without the pixies around and Rachel is sick of Jenks not talking to her. So when they get word from Jax that Nick is missing and Jax needs help they drop their difference and hit the road to save them.

    In true Rachel form this is no simple road trip. There are vampires and werewolves involved and Rachel fighting for her life but she has her trusty backup, Jenks. And Jenks is very much front and center in a big way.

    We didn’t get to see of Trent this time about but my fingers are crossed that he will show up in the next installment, For a Few More Demons. Which that title has me a little nervous. I’m thinking we may get to see more of Al.

    The Characters:
    Rachel is a kick ass witch but at the same time she boarders on “too stupid to live” but in a funny and endearing way. With the help of her friends, Rachel learns why she makes some of the dumb choices in her personal life. And knowing is half the battle, right?

    Jenks is a cocky and snarky pixie that’s always there for his partners Rachel and Ivy. He would die to save Rachel and his family. And I think he feels the same about Ivy but he hides it.

    Ivy has it hard being stuck behind wanting to be Rachel’s friend and partner to wanting more from Rachel. Not to mention she is trying to fight off some personal demons.
    Nick… is a turd and Rachel’s human ex-boyfriend.

    Kisten is a sexy vamp who is dating Rachel and seems to really care for her. He is also Ivy’s ex and friend.

    The Narration:
    I’m not sure if it’s Gavin’s narration or Harrison’s writing that keeps me coming back. I think it’s a little of both. I can’t picture myself reading this series now that I’m hooked on Gavin’s voice for the series. She does an amazing job for all the characters. Her voice for Rachel and Jenks is the best.

    Final Thought(s):
    JENKS!! One of the best secondary characters ever! And he summed up my feelings about Nick in this quote… “No one cares little green turds about you.”

    Will I continue the series:
    Hell ya! It gets better with each book. I’m really enjoying the snarky humor and the building relationships between the characters.

    "Rachel Rocks!"


    This book is action packed and full of adventure! Rachel Morgan becomes more involved with demons and her relationships with Ivy Tamwood and Nick evolve. The gang actually leave Cincinnati on a rescue mission which causes a unique set of challenges. We get to see Jenks in a whole new light which makes this my favorite in The Hollows series so far.

    I listened to this on audio and while I enjoy Marguerite Gavin's narration many sentences were halting and broke the flow of the book. She even made mistakes with character's voices a few times which was terribly distracting. Whoever was in charge of production really dropped the ball but I still loved the book.

    Story
    "An artifact in the wrong hands"
    Any additional comments?

    This book was by far the best in the series so far.
    Nick, the human thief, has gotten himself and Jax (the pixie son of Jenks) into real trouble with several wolf packs. Rachel and Jenks team up on a mission to save Jax and to free Nick from his captors. Rachel feels she owes Nick because he saved her life once.
    There's a whole lot of dark spellcasting/demon rituals in this book that are bad but done with good intentions - toeing a very gray area of magic.
    There's a cute new character, Rex, who is an adorable kitten that Jax befriended.

    An artifact causes untold trouble for a vast number of people. It's an ancient powerful artifact that can do a lot of good and a lot of bad. It would allow werewolves to turn humans into werewolves with just a bite and it would allow several packs to unite (if not all packs) under one Alpha. The artifact could shift the balance of the Interlander community and possibly the Interlander-human community. In the right hands it has the potential for small good. Figuring out whose hands (if anyone's at all) this artifact should be in is very tricky.

    There's a whole lot of scheming, counter-scheming, lying and action in this book.
    And there are also some very heartfelt, open, honest emotional scenes.
    Pescari played a small part in this book and for that I am utterly thankful as I can't stand him!
    There's a whole lot of ethics and philosophy in this book too. How much wrong for the right reason is too wrong?

    "Overall a very enjoyable book"

    Sometimes the narrator would use inflections or pauses that did not seem to flow with the scene. I did like her use of different accents and voices to differentiate between characters.

    Story
    "Being irritated by the heroine gets tiresome"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Rachel's constant whining and bad decisions make the book more frustrating than enjoyable. I got tired of hearing "It's not fair!", "God save me!" and "I can take care of myself!" Suck it up buttercup. I loved the first three books but this one was hard for me to get into. In saying that, the second half of the book was better than the first half.


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

    Marguerite does a great job of bringing the characters to life and giving them an identity beyond what is written by the author.
