Publisher's Summary

Enter the woods...if you dare.

For centuries, the woods have been a pivotal part of the wonder and danger of fairy tales, for once you enter anything can happen. Elves, druids, fairies - who knows what you will find once you dare step into the forest?

And now, New York Times best-selling author Kim Harrison ventures into these mysterious, hidden lands of magic and mystery in her first short-story collection. Into the Woods brings together an enchanting mix of brand-new, never-before-published stories and tales from Harrison's beloved, best-selling Hollows series.

The tales here include an original Hollows novella, "Million-Dollar Baby", about Trent Kalamack's secret elven quest in Pale Demon; two original short stories, "Pet Shop Boys" and "Temson Woods," that explore just what happens when humanity and the supernatural collide; and two novelettes, "Spider Silk" and "Grace," set in new worlds of imagination and adventure. Into the Woods also contains all of the previously published Hollows short stories - together in one volume for the very first time.

Step into the woods and discover the magic for yourself.

This Was Wonderful !

I have loved this series from the very beginning and these short stories filled in a lot of the back story for most of the main characters. It is always great getting to know the characters better and now I really can't wait for the release of the next book at the end of the month. As far as I am concerned Marguerite Gavin is the perfect Voice of the characters in this book. From Algaliarept to Rachel, Ivy or Jinx. I will always recognize them instantly. You certainly can't say that about a lot of narrators.
The Hollows is a wonderful series I would recommend to anyone.

Loved these stories!!!

If you could sum up Into the Woods in three words, what would they be?

Spectacular! Interesting! Entertaining!

What did you like best about this story?

My Fave was Million Dollar Baby! And I loved the last story Grace....but I really liked all of them!!

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

All the Rachel books, and I love her!!

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

The banshee story really touched me and Ivy's....and lots of this book made me laugh...Kim Harrison has a delightful sense of humor...

Any additional comments?

I liked the way this book tied up a lot of loose ends...and I liked the new stories and characters a lot...I hope she does more with Grace!

Kim Harrison's Rachel Morgan series lovers

Would you consider the audio edition of Into the Woods to be better than the print version?

I love the audio versions of Kim Harrison's Rachel Morgan and Hallows. The narrator in this series is wonderful and brings the characters to life. Give them the right inflection, with Al, and Ivy, or Rachel and Trent, even Jinx.

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

Marguerite Gavin is a fantastic narrator. She's able to get into characters, and emotions and adjust her voice to make them believable

Any additional comments?

I love this anthology, it is rare that an author can put together, original and previous works that will compliment her other works. If you have followed Kim Harrison's work you will enjoy this anthology.

Added a lot to the series

First, read the series before this book! It is really not a stand alone book. This adds to the series filling in the gaps between stories and expanding on some of the stories you know. Some of the shorts in this book are really not so short at all but are novellas. I really enjoyed some of them and some were just meh, but Kim Harrison is a great writer and she delivers well with this collection.

GREAT background to The Hollows story lines.

Loved finding out what happens in the plots that you didn't get to read about in the actual stories. Great writing and I love the marvelous narration by Marguerite Gavin

The good, the bad, and the undead

I like most of the stories but not all. Only listen to this book if you have already read the other books in the series. The only question mark I have is the story about kistin. I could have sworn in The Undead Pool Rachael said kistin didn't have any siblings but in the short story about him in this book, he has a sister. Anyway... some stories are good and some stories are bad but all are worth listening to if you are fan of the hollows.
