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!

    "Great fun, voicing not perfect"

    Love the series, love the ability to listen while active. What I don't love is the voicing. Ms. Gavin hasn't the vocal range to carry it, and her Jenks is so annoying as to almost put me off the recordings.

    Story
    "Really bad - will be returning this one"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I was so looking forward to this book. Although the story starts out ok the entire plot line with Ivy is extremely irritating and non-sensical and unfortunately ends in such a manner that this story line can only continue in future books. Big bummer because I really liked Rachel, Jinks and several other other characters and greatly enjoyed listening to the first two books.


    What could Kim Harrison have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Just not gone there with Ivy. It has nothing to do with homosexuality either. You need to listen to understand, but honestly I don't recommend it.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Marguerite Gavin?

    Her narration is fine.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from A Fistful of Charms?

    Most of the middle and end scenes with Ivy.

    "torture"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The reader was not performing this book, at best she is reading it with emphasis. And the Bad language was the worst part. It seems the author can not go a sentence with out putting in some curse or foul thought. I couldn't even finish the book.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Kim Harrison again?

    no


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

    Lack of enthusiasm.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disappointment.


    Any additional comments?

    waste of time and I wish there was a way to know if a book is going to have bad language in it before trying to listen to it.

    Story
    "Outstanding! Flirting w/black and demon magic!"
    What did you love best about A Fistful of Charms?

    The expansion of her skills into demon curses.


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

    The twisting of a demon curse.


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

    Her intimation of each character in a well played fashion.


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

    Laughed many times.


    Any additional comments?

    I love the story arch and where it is going regarding RMM and what buttons she likes to have pushed. Most of us go our entire lives not acknowledging our buttons much less asking someone to push them.

    "Grating Voice - wrong Title for Me"
    Would you try another book from Kim Harrison and/or Marguerite Gavin?

    No. This is not what I thought it would be. Marguerite Gavin's voice hurt my ears. I need a lower range to be able to enjoy the narration. As to the Book itself.. I thought I would try a different genre. I guess I'm not a fan of sexy witches, warlocks, werewolves, etc.


    What could Kim Harrison have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    nothing- it is just not my type of read.

    Story
    "Thoroughly Entertaining !"
    Would you consider the audio edition of A Fistful of Charms to be better than the print version?

    Not having read the print version it would be unfair to comment; i am a fan of the author, the Hollows story and characters are inviting, exciting and come to life during the reading. I will be reading the next instalment.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    This book allowed the readers to learn of the deeper traits of many characters. I couldn't possibly pick a favorite.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The island werewolf encampment, the bridge scene and the return to the hollows were possibly my favourites. I couldn't stop - every free moment a reached for it.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The relationship between Rachel, Ivy and Jinxs. The scenes unfolding throughout gave deeper glimpses into their dynamics.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't stop !!

    "Action from Start to Finish!"

    I feel like the series really hit it stride with this book. Where the first few books felt a little slow in spots, this one was action all the way through. A lot happened, and while the relationships still feel a little over-dramatic at times, I'm enjoying the development of the characters. Looking forward to the next one!

    "BEST BOOK YET!!!!"

    I am enjoying this series. But, this was by far the best book yet! In this one you learn what makes a lot of the main characters tick. Now if you have listened the the first 3 books in the series you may have figured Ivy and Rachel out. Well I hadn't! Even Kisten, Nick and Jenks surprised me a little.

    Here's my recommendation, if you stopped at book two or three in the series it is worth it to make it to book 4!

    The narrator Marguerite Gavin is wonderful. But I will say that the production quality was not great. At one point I had to double check that the speed was not at 2x.

    I would say is definitely worth a credit!

    Story
    "Oh Curses (pun intended)"

    The gang is off on an adventure: Rachel, Ivy, Janks, Jacks, and Nick. Rachel is in need of some stronger charms, bordering on black magic. Rachel and Janks experience transformations. There is really a lot of action that takes place in this book. I am relieved that there is none of the vamp seduction like there was in book 2. Janks provides tons of comedy. A powerful ancient item is up for grabs, who will be the finders/keepers? When finally arriving back home at the church, Kisten and Madelina are glad to have them back.
