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.

Loved this series!

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!

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.

A great series!

This Trilogy, just like the rest of her work, is written in an approachable and wonderful way. It is a delightfully fresh take on Supernatural and paranormal fiction, with a heroine that I think every person who has ever struggled with anything can relate to. I also very much enjoyed the reader, who did a very good job with inflections, accents and pace. A must-read!

Good

The author can be a bit wordy. I think this book would have been better broken up in 2 books BUT still a great short series!
Love, Love the reader!!

Narrator almost spoiled this for me

I love Jacqueline Carey and this is some great work. However, the reader is so grating, it is a struggle to continue listening.

The most casual throwaway sentence penned by Carey is suddenly imbued with too much drama and angst. Why she feels the need to actually whine when voicing many characters is beyond me.

The dramatic growling just needs to be dialed way back. As well as the whining--oh man, the whining.
