Synopsis:

New York Times bestselling author Kim Harrison has won legions of fans with her sexy supernatural novels featuring bounty-hunting witch Rachel Morgan. And now comes a unique look inside her beloved Hollows series that no fan should miss. . . . The Hollows Insider

In the Hollows, the supernatural Inderlanders rule, and humanity must abide by their conventions, or else.

To survive among vampires, witches, Weres, gargoyles, trolls, fairies, and banshees—to say nothing of demons—humanity needs a guide. And now, written by Kim Harrison herself, here is an insider’s look at the supernatural world of the Hollows, from an overarching new story to character profiles, maps, spell guides, charm recipes, secret correspondence from the elusive Trent Kalamack, and much more.

My Thoughts:

I have been waiting for this book to come out since I heard about it and getting to pick it up and getting it signed by Kim Harrison on release date was outstanding.  I love everything about this book, from the glow in the dark cover (which is just amazing!) to the colors and format of the book.  It is written from the point of view of the reporter that Rachel  hits by mistake with a spell early in the very first book in this series.  It makes the content just pop!  Outstanding descriptions and backgrounds on all of the different races and how to handle each one.  It is a beautiful book and so well put together, it exceed my expectations by so much!  Great work, Kim!

My Rating:

5 Penguins!

I highly recommend this book it is worth the purchase!

    Awesome! I just posted my review a few minutes ago as well! Mine’s not signed, but hope to see Kim again some time down the road! She’s a very fun author to visit! Did get the killer glow in the dark cover though! Yay! Glad you liked it too!

  • Sometimes I feel like the only person in the world that hasn’t read anything by Kim Harrison yet. I know. I’m a loser.

    Glad you enjoyed it so much. Cute rating system. 🙂
