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!

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!

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.

She really must make better decisions

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Yes it was entertaining. This far into the series however, it would be great if Rachel actually made some good decisions. Let us see her grow

What was most disappointing about Kim Harrison’s story?

Rachel never learns. Let her grow some please

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

The other Rachel Morgan books. She is very good performing this series.

Do you think A Fistful of Charms needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Yes, One in which the statue is destroyed and the issue is put to rest.

Fist Full of Action

I'm glad I waited to read this series because now I can read the books one after another and not have to wait. The latest installment in the series is full of action and suspense. It spends a lot of time on Rachel's character- her evolving magical abilities , her evolving relationship with Ivy and an introspective look at her motivations. There is a look into the werewolf culture in Rachel's world. Now that she is working with a werewolf, I imagine werewolves will become a bigger part of future plots. Nick is back. This time we meet the real Nick. I won't give away any spoilers but I was really disappointed. I was very happy the Rachel remained strong and true to herself throughout the book. I hope Nick makes another appearance in the future. I would like to know the trouble he is in, as long as Rachel stays out of it. This book had many twist and turns. When I thought it was about to end, something would go wrong and there would be a new twist. I have to say I enjoyed this book and have already bought the next book.

Disappointed

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The second half of the book was no where near the quality of the first half. The first half builds up to what seems is going to be an exciting, world shattering experiance for Rachel, and in some ways, this did happen. The events that took place in the second half of the book will change Rachel, for better or worse. But at the end of it all is this

What was most disappointing about Kim Harrison’s story?

I loved the first three books, but this fourth iteration of the Rachel Morgan series did not do the series justice. My biggest problem was the weight and magnitude of the story did not feel nearly as detrimental as the first three books. It starts off interesting enough but when it reintroduces Rachel's ex-boyfriend Nick, the character did not make a whole lot of sense for his motivations. Kim Harrison tried to make Nick a greedy thief and that all he cared about was money, but we never got this sense of

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

Rachel Morgan had one too many

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Not even if I was paid. 2 hours of bickering. If I wanted that I would see Twilight.

The most exciting yet

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Exciting story with adventure and tenderness.

What other book might you compare A Fistful of Charms to and why?

It stands alone but maybe Stephenie Meyers Host.

What about Marguerite Gavin’s performance did you like?

A lot of the series I listen to are narrated by her. Kitty and the midnight hour being just one

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes

Charming!

The Hollows series is funny, thrilling, edgy and well-written. It's Mercy Thompson meets Sookie Stackhouse and I am happy I stumbled across this series in an Audible Sale. Marguerite Gavin is a wonderful narrator and I hope she narrates the entire series.
