More About the Author

The only girl in a large family of boys, former tomboy Kim Harrison invented the first Brigadier General Barbie in self-defence. She shoots a very bad game of pool and rolls a very good game of dice. When not at her keyboard, she enjoys lounging on the couch with a bowl of popcorn watching action movies with The-Guy-In-The-Leather-Jacket. She plays her Ashiko drum when no one is listening, and is hard to find when the moon is new.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Want the Next Book Now! 5 July 2006
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I love this series. No, I mean I REALLY love this series! A quick rundown of its finer points: It's got action, though not over the top. It has a smidgeon of romance that lends a slight sensitive air to an often dangerous and suspenseful atmosphere. It has amazingly strong characters, from villain to heroine, that make you feel and know who they really are. And finally, though never least, it has a solid plot that advances satisfactorily with each progressive installment.

Rachel Morgan has had some tough issues to deal with in less than one year. She's been marked for death by the organization that she once worked for and survived. She's been marked and almost claimed by a rather nasty demon, yet managed to best even that complex being. And so achingly close to home, she's still coming to terms with her scattered love life, confusingly twisted around her roommate Ivy, her lover Kisten and former boyfriend Nick. It's not a love triangle, but it comes durn close! When her estranged partner, Jenks, comes on board for one last run, they're off to Michigan to pull Nick and one of Jenks' sons out of trouble. As always with our dear, flawed Rachel, she gets way more than she bargained for and soon they're fending off the unwanted attentions of some disturbingly unified Were packs. Why are the Weres uniting and what will it bring as the normally submissive species climbs its way towards top of the supernatural food chain? Nothing good for the vamps, which have much to lose if the packs do unite. With ultra aggressive Weres sniping from every direction, and more undead looking on her with not so subtle lust, what's a poor earth witch to do? With Rachel, it's an open book and fans may be surprised at the lengths she's willing to go to in this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jenks and Rachel go to Plan B 29 Jun 2009
Format:Paperback
I was so impressed with this book. It's the fourth in the Rachel Morgan series and is definitely the best so far. The pace was much better managed; I never felt as if the story lagged on -- indeed, from start to finish I could barely put it down! 'A Fistful of Charms' takes the characters out of their usual haunts (Cinncy and the Hollows) and into another city way out of town. This made for a nice change of pace and gave the book, as well as the characters, a nice breather.

Rachel soon finds that her AWOL ex-boyfriend Nick has run off with Jenks's son Jax and has stolen a very important (formerly lost) Were artefact. Despite Jenks's and Rachel's falling out in the last book they team up again for the rescue mission. Trent and Al are nowhere to be seen in this book, usually I would have been disappointed but Jenks more than made up for their absence. He was truly the star here and we got to see a very different side to him -- in more ways than one! For this run he agrees to be made human-sized via a spell; with some persuading he turns into a hunky six-foot-four eighteen year old blond. Hilarity thus ensues the whole way through as Jenks gets to grips with his new height; we learn a lot more about him and he becomes probably the best drawn character in the book. I thought it was funny Rachel drooled over him the entire trip -- it was a nice call-back to the first book when she ogled him as a small mink. Speaking of call-backs there were a heck of a lot in this book, which is always nice as it gives the series a feeling of connection. It reminds us that the story and their various events don't exist in isolation and what happens affects the characters.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the strongest entry in the series 16 Jun 2010
Format:Paperback
"Let's take a look at my track record. I live in a church with a vampire who is the scion of a master vampire who would just as soon see me dead. I date her old boyfriend, who used to be said master vampire's scion, and my ex-boyfriend is a professional thief who calls demons and trades information about me for tips to steal artifacts that can start an Inderland power struggle." This is the shape of Rachel Morgan's life as we go through the fourth book in Kim Harrison's series about the Hollows and the Inderlanders who inhabit it.

In fact, in this story we take a road trip away from Cincinnati - Rachel receives news that Nick (her old flame) and Jenks' son Jax are in trouble, and sets out to help them. Since Ivy is supposedly unable to leave Cincinnati - otherwise Piscary gets pissed - Rachel invokes black demon magic in order to make Jenks...more useful. In the course of the story Rachel beats two Were alphas, discovers the existence of the Focus which could cause widescale warfare between Weres and Vamps, takes her relationship with Ivy to a new stage, and ogles Jenks......a lot!

There is a lot going on in this book, and it rapidly became my least favourite so far. I enjoyed the interaction between Rachel and Jenks - particularly because his presence was so missed in the previous book - and the uniqueness of his situation in this book. It was also heartbreaking to realise along with Rachel that Jenks actually counts as an old pixy. I liked the set up of the plan, and cheered the double cross of Nick.

However, there were many things I disliked or got tired of. Weres aren't really my thing, and so I found it difficult to stay interested in the main part of the plot. I ended up wanting to shake Rachel, because she came distinctly whiney in this book.
