I love the whole hollows series. Rachel, Ivy and Jenks pull it off time and time again. Magic, mystery and danger follow them where ever they go.

Harrison just keepings getting better. This is my least favorite book in the series, mostly because it lack a certain character in the story line. Fantastic series for people who like urban fantasy but find the sexual overload necessary. I look forward to each and every book. ( )

A Fistful of Charms is the fourth book in The Hollows series by Kim Harrison. While I love this series, this particular novel was not my favorite. This one features werewolves, but I didn't like Harrison's take on how they function together. They are all after something Nick stole, so Rachel has to help him. The whole idea of this item and what it does is just strange to me. I can't be more explicit because I don't want to spoil the book for anyone.

The main characters are here, Rachel, Al, Jenks, and Ivy; who gets more involved than usual, which was interesting. I really enjoy how Harrison grows each character throughout the books. As in real life, they change their personalities and views on issues as things happen.

The story slowed down in places, like when they hung out at the hotel trying to figure out what to do. The whole big scene on the bridge was sad and a little weird. It didn't leave me completely satisfied.

I still love the series. In my opinion, they need to be read in order to get the full benefit of the stories and the characters. So read this one, but maybe don't expect as much. They do get a lot better! ( )

This is an Urban Fantasy Novel and is one of my favorites in the genre. It is different enough from others that it leaves me wanting more. Rachel Morgan is a witch and bounty hunter. She is partners with Ivy Tamwood and Jenks. Kisten is a vampire and Rachel's current boyfriend, while Nick is human and Rachel's ex-boyfriend. All of these characters are very complex and sometimes almost too real. It is almost too hard to explain the relationships between the characters because they are so complex. The story seems to evolve around the relationships and how they are moving. My favorite is Jenks. I just love him. he may be small but he has a lot of heart and determination.

I enjoyed a life size Jenks in this book. The scenes when he is experiencing various human foods and such are just awesome. Nick is one of my least favorite characters in this series, the fact that he came back was kinda a bummer to me. There was something about him from the beginning that I didn't like. Rachel and Ivy's relationship is a big frustration to me, but it seemed to progress/change in the storyline of this book. Which I was happy about.

Kim Harrison is a great writer. There is nothing forgotten in this book. I enjoyed the continuation of the series. I will for sure continue in this series so that I can see what Rachel gets into next. I would for sure recommend this series, just know that it starts out a little slow. ( )

Epigraph
Dedication
To the man who invariably says, "Really? Okay," instead of, "You want to do what?"
First words
The solid thud of David's car door shutting echoed off the stone face of the eight-story building we had parked beside.
Quotations
'I was a sucker for a smart man, especially when the brains came packaged in a body that was carefully maintained' Rachel
'One person can't hold anything, but two can have the world' Jenks
I glanced at the men behind him, then extended my hand again. 'Rachel Morgan,' I said more confidently than I felt. 'And this is Jenks, my partner.' This was weird, civilized. Yes, I've come to rob you, sir. / How delightful; won't you have some tea before you do?
