Me and the reviewer weelenny "Dranoel" disagree wildly in regards to another product of the Hollows (the Graphic Novel), but in this case, I have to actually completely go with his grade. This is, definitely, a 5 star product. Not only it's exquisitely made in heavy stock paper, with awesome printing, but it's shock full of information.

NEW information.

While there is SOME stuff that came from the Kim Harrison site, it's just a few bits and bobs that actually fit here, and are totally worth to see again in print. However, it's NOT like the case of the very ghastly (and thicker) Illustrated Guide to the Twilight Series, which is nothing but a reprint of the TwiLexicon information, padded out with an interview with SMeyers and really unnecessary information (cars? really?). By comparison, The Hollows Insider gets it ALL right: new knowledge about the world, about the characters and organizations, about people never before mentioned (but that had to exist somewhere, right?). My only (minor) complaint is that it's oddly sized -- but as I said, a minor niggle, and never in any way a deal breaker.

The strong point of the book was exactly the new information and knowledge about the series -- we get not only great chunks of the bible of the series, but there is information nowhere else to be found. Plus, the care to make this an assembly of intel made by a reporter accidentally hexed by main character Rachel, and justify it with a ton of tiny little details (love the expense report) tells a tiny story on itself.

This is very clearly a labor of love, made not to earn a quick buck like some other franchises (coughTwilightcough), and it involved clearly a lot of work; other authors who consider publishing guides to their world should take a good look at this book first and then learn from it.

A definite 5 stars.

A must have for any kim harrison hollows fans, just so good. a whole new story and an indepth description of the different species present. Of course the highlight would have to be the list of Jenks curses that have been recorded lol!

A lovely looking book. Really well set out.
Still reading it, but loving the insight into each specie.
It's much better than other behind the scene books I've read. If you are a big fan, then it's must have.
Ooo also loving how it's been printed and the pages set out.

I love the look inside the Hollows through the eyes of a human reporter and the way the story line develops parallel to the first few books is excellent. All it needed to be perfect were a few more drawings of the main characters as described in various books.

this is a must get if you love the hollows series however id suggest you get it in paper back format and not as a eBook it follows Rachel and Trent as a reporter is snooping set in the early stages of the series and has some wonderful content in it drawings private messages songs written by Takata, sections of spell books including Al's and the cover even glows in the dark!

This was a very fun read. I thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to reading the next installment in the Hollows series. This book has renewed my love of the hollows.

I have read all the series starting by borrowing them as library books and then buying them for my kindle, this just helps when I want to re read the series.

I had hoped that this would prove a useful accompaniment but I felt it fell short of achieving this. Reasonable for what it contains.
