A Fistful of Charms by Kim Harrison
Narrator: Marguerite Gavin
Length: 17 hrs and 10 mins


Date Read: February 2015

Goodreads

The evil night things that prowl Cincinnati despise witch and bounty hunter Rachel Morgan. Her new reputation for the dark arts is turning human and undead heads alike with the intent to possess, bed, and kill her -- not necessarily in that order.

Now a mortal lover who abandoned Rachel has returned, haunted by his secret past. And there are those who covet what Nick possesses -- savage beasts willing to destroy the Hollows and everyone in it if necessary.

Forced to keep a low profile or eternally suffer the wrath of a vengeful demon, Rachel must nevertheless act quickly. For the pack is gathering for the first time in millennia to ravage and to rule. And suddenly more than Rachel's soul is at stake.

First Thought when Finished:A Fistful of Charms by Kim Harrison won’t go down as one of my favorites in the series mostly because of Nick!

Overall Thoughts:

1: Have never been a fan of Nick (though I honestly don’t want her with Kist either) and so I am hoping the end marked their relationship from this point forward.
2: I still love the troubled threesome but the foreshadowing is making me pre-sad!
3: Big Jenks = Awesome!
4: Hoping this is a turn for Ivy and she will be more open!
5: No Trent so I felt like the overall story didn’t move forward.
6: Need more Ceri–she is super interesting.
7: Less Kisten (and he wasn’t even in this one much)

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated By Marguerite Gavin / Length: 17 hrs and 10 mins


She really nails all of these characters. I am just a fan of Marguerite’s narration. Awesome is just awesome ๐Ÿ™‚

My Status Updates:

20%: #Listening Yeah Jenks is back in the mix!
51%: I am reading and listening. The library had the book so I can switch up Yeah!
56%: Listening while working today: I HATE NICK! Seriously I doubt he dies (cause really I wouldn’t miss him so that means he lives) but the Ray Ray thing is going to make me fall into the world with some duct tape :)”
60%: Listening is that really about to happen? OMG really Ivy/Rachel–this is a really intense scene!

    I think this was probably my least favorite book of the entire series. I agree with everything you said except the “Less Kisten” — I actually really liked him! (Did you know that Kisten in German means boxes? That was a word I learned in class while I was reading these books when they first came out, and it’s amused me ever since).

    And your quotes at the end! It’s amazing how much just the couple of lines can make me smile and remember about an entire scene. Oh Jenks! He’s got to be one of the most quotable characters ever!

      OMG I want to stabby end Nick’s life. I mean like flay him alive (very Hannibal of me) but he has got to hands down be one of the most unlikable fictional characters ever.

    I’ve never finished this series mainly because it was so long between books and so much happened. Now that’s it ended, I should go back and finish.
    Loved Big Jenks, hated Nick, was meh about Kris and was very confused about Ivy!!
