A Fistful of Charms by Kim Harrison
Narrator: Marguerite Gavin
Length: 17 hrs and 10 mins
Date Read: February 2015
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!
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)
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 🙂

He grinned. “That’s because pixies are ever-after. We’re magic, baby. Just ask Matalina.”
“Damn it all to Disneyland! Where’s crap for brains?”
During her non-reading time you can find her hanging with her rescue furr children named after book characters: Lizzie a beautiful cattle dog mix (Pound Pup), Cinder a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Pound Pup), and Minerva a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Foster Fail). Gathering with friends and family, attending conventions, watching movies/tv shows, rooting for the 49rs, and crocheting.
