Got Tired of the Main Character Whining

Any additional comments?

I have enjoyed the series but this book became one long whine about how nothing can go right for the main character and how she hates her life. Even cool things that happen are met with a pissy attitude. I am moving on to a main character that doesn't bitch about everything.

Not as good as the 3 previous.

Would you try another book from Kim Harrison and/or Marguerite Gavin?

Yes, definately if the reviews were good, and it was narratted by Marguerite Gavin. I love her narration. I am starting to become disapointed after reading this book and not sure if I am going to get another of the hollows series. I am ready to read some other books. I definately agreed with many reviewers who recommended the first three.. I feel they are terrific and great of this series.

What could Kim Harrison have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

She could have included more of Kisten, demon Al, and writing off Nick was apparently evident. Nick started the series as an extremely nice guy, then off he leaves in the last book, and in this one, he becomes a real jerk. I did enjoy the partnership of Rachel and Jenks, even if she oogled him a bit too much. Also, the weres didn't make it for me along the plot. It becomes apparent that Kim wants Rachel's character to have more enchanting loves in her life, or open the door for Kisten or Ivy in her love triangle.

What about Marguerite Gavin’s performance did you like?

I love her connection with all the charactors, and thier personalities. I say that I cringed everytime when she read "MackinacK", not MackinaW several times in the book.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Perhaps, especially being a Michigan native, and visiting Mackinaw every summer, this could be an endless playing movie in an Imax theater up in Northern Michigan. Kim's inclusion in the book with the mighty Mac bridge, her describing the sites area of Mackinaw Mich and the islands, and mention of the "fudgies" made me chuckle. I am surprised that they haven't started selling this book all the gift shops in and around the tourist district.

Any additional comments?

It would appear that Rachel likes a heterosexual lifestyle, and Kim writes it safe between her and Kisten. Only brief teasing sequences between Ivy and Rachel which seems to me that Kim isn't truly prepared to make the Rachel the witch and Ivy the vampire lovers quite yet. Is she afraid that readers will respond negatively to such lesbian scenes?
