Publisher's Summary

To save the lives of her friends, Rachel did the unthinkable: she willingly trafficked in forbidden demon magic. And now her sins are coming home to haunt her.

As Rachel searches for the truth behind a terrifying murder, an even greater menace threatens, for the demon Algaliarept will stop at nothing to claim her, and the discovery of a shocking family secret throws Rachel's entire life into question. If she is ever to live free, Rachel must first walk willingly into the demonic ever-after in search of long-lost ancient knowledge.

But when you dance with demons, you lay your soul on the line...and there are some lines that should never be crossed.

    "Worst narration ever"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I have enjoyed this series immensely. The narration in this book however made it almost impossible to listen to. The mispronunciations of core character names as well as the horrible voicing of the characters was truly painful. Jenks sounded like Mickey Mouse, a complete destruction of probably the best character of the series.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Outlaw Demon Wails?

    The horrible narration


    Would you be willing to try another one of Gigi Bermingham’s performances?

    Never


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Outlaw Demon Wails?

    The narrator

    "why would you dare switch narrators?"
    If you could sum up The Outlaw Demon Wails in three words, what would they be?

    Bad performance


    How could the performance have been better?

    Volume would change from track to track....And listen to previous books and pronounce the names the same way.

    "Get rid of the narrator"
    Any additional comments?

    I must agree with all the other reviews I've read about this book. Kim Harrison does a wonderful job writing but as Jenks might say "Tinks titties get a new narrator." I had a very hard time finishing this audio book. I am so glad to see Marguerite Gavin will big back for the remainder of the series.

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

    I love the series and hope it will be.


    If you’ve listened to books by Kim Harrison before, how does this one compare?

    Very disappointed that Marguerite Gavin is not performing this book. I'ts very hard for me to listen to.


    What didn’t you like about Gigi Bermingham’s performance?

    Voices and characters don't feel real. Boring, I am spoiled with the way Marguerite Gavin created them. I felt I could see them before, now they are empty.


    Was The Outlaw Demon Wails worth the listening time?

    I'm not finished with this title.

    "Narrator is a little different"
    What did you like best about The Outlaw Demon Wails? What did you like least?

    Good story line. The narrator had different pronunciations of certain words/characters that was a little irritating--well, a lot irritating. However, I did like her voice of Rachel's mother more than Gavin's as hers made Rachel's mother sound a little younger and stronger than Gavin's frail portrayal of the character. However, nearly all the other voices, I preferred Gavin's.


    What three words best describe Gigi Bermingham’s voice?

    Her voice was okay, I think Gavin's voices for nearly all the characters is better. For this particular narration, her voice was: irritating, annoying and whiny. However, given a different story, I would likely find her pretty good.

    "Production and Narrator are different"
    What did you like best about The Outlaw Demon Wails? What did you like least?

    I was really disappointed in the production of this audio book. It is so annoying when the narrator changes. Her enunciation of the names of characters and certain words used throughout the story were pronounced phonetically. Equally annoying was her sometimes New York accent leaking through. The main character is from Ohio. Lastly, there was this annoying track of ominous music played throughout at seeming random places throughout the reading (rather than being at the end of a chapter). All in all, it makes me wonder who hired this lady.. and that whoever was in charge of production should be fired. By contrast, the story by itself was fantastic.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Gigi Bermingham?

    Marguerite Gavin

    "Good story, but narrator didn't deliver"
    Would you listen to The Outlaw Demon Wails again? Why?

    Story line is good. K. Harrison offered fluidity between the previous book and this one. Unfortunately, the narrator's mis-pronunciations were annoying enough to distract a reader from enjoying the story. Ms. Bermingham obviously didn't do her homework, or at least, listened to the previous books. I don't have anything against changing readers between books in a series (albeit, I don't prefer it), but new readers should be required to listen to the previous books to get an overall picture of how the characters in the series have evolved from day 1. I mean, c'mon, "lee line"? As if Ms. Bermingham has never encountered this term in her life. Why have someone read a book that involves the supernatural when the reader (narrator) has no clue of this terminology? Names of characters were also read differently. Glad that they took Ms. Gavin back for the subseqent books.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Mis-pronunciations of words and read the characters named differently from the previous narrator

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

    Using the same narrator as the rest of the series.


    How could the performance have been better?

    If the narrator had listened to the previous books before narrating so she at least could have pronounced the names and terms the same. It was disappointing enough to have the voice change, but having pronunciations change kinda spoils the listening experience.


    Any additional comments?

    I am glad to see the original narrator returns for the next book.

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

    The narrator was awful. I have never written a review before but was so disappointed in the narrator change I had to do it.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Terrible
    She destroyed this great series from an audio perspective


    What character would you cut from The Outlaw Demon Wails?

    None


    Any additional comments?

    I just had to comment that this narrator was AWFUL.
