Publisher's Summary

The Pemkowet Visitors Bureau has always promoted paranormal tourism - even if it has downplayed the risks (hobgoblins are unpredictable). It helps that the town is presided over by Daisy Johanssen, who as Hel’s liaison is authorized by the Norse goddess of the dead to keep Pemkowet under control. Normally, that’s easier to do in the winter, when bracing temperatures keep folks indoors. But a new predator is on the prowl, and this one thrives on nightmares. Daisy is on her trail and working intimately with her partner and sometime lover from the Pemkowet PD, sexy yet unavailable werewolf Cody Fairfax. But even as the creature is racking up innocent victims, a greater danger looms on Pewkowet’s horizon. As a result of a recent ghost uprising, an unknown adversary - represented by a hell-spawn lawyer with fiery powers of persuasion - has instigated a lawsuit against the town. If Pemkowet loses, Hel’s sovereignty will be jeopardized, and the fate of the eldritch community will be at stake. The only one who can prevent it is Daisy - but she’s going to have to confront her own worst nightmare to do it.

WOW!!!!!!

This is a great series. I really enjoyed the characters and the plot. I wish there were more books in this series. There is so much more that could be written about this incredibly creative and entertaining world. The only thing I regret is that it took me so long to give it a chance.

What made the experience of listening to Poison Fruit the most enjoyable?

Loved seeing Daisy become more confident throughout the series.What a cast of characters - I think Loreen needs her own series!

Excellent conclusion

…to a very strong trilogy! I enjoyed the characters, who mostly felt like real people (with a few deliberate exceptions). I had wondered if there would be more books in the series, but I had underestimated this third book! The first half seemed to deal mostly with smaller things and an early “big bad” that made me think the book was wrapping up, only to notice that there were 9 hours left! Oh yeah - that was all backstory using the characters and situations set up (very enjoyably) in books 1 and 2 to create a whole NEW arc, on a whole new level!! Okay, a couple of times I wondered where the heck we were going with this it that plot point - but as far as I’m concerned, the climax and ending were totally worth it. Because of this layering, I strongly recommend reading the books in order - Agent of Hel, Autumn Leaves, then Poison Fruit last, where a lot of characters are involved that were well developed in earlier books. I’ve been resisting grade inflation in reviews, and this book made me glad I don’t just hand out 5 stars - because as usual, Jacqueline Carey really earned all five stars!

It was alright

It was alright, it felt like it was all filler. The ending is lackluster and anticlimactic. I get that the Daisy is only 24 I felt she did way to many stupid things and blamed them on others.

Honest Thoughts

Honestly the worst thing about this book is that is ends the series, and I was kind of hoping for a few more.

Most if not all of the plot lines are neatly tied up, leaving very little room for another book without resorting to a large time jump.

I can't say much more without spoilers but I think this series of books would translate well into movies if you can get the rights to reference all the other movie she talks about.
