URBAN FANTASY RERELEASE REVIEW: A Fistful of Charms - Kim Harrison

Release Date: 05/01/12


Sexy, vibrant new packaging for Kim Harrison's New York Times bestselling urban fantasy The Hollows series: this is the fourth book starring sexy bounty hunter and witch, Rachel Morgan There's no rest for the wicked, even when the taint on your soul isn't your fault. It would be wise for witch and bounty hunter, Rachel Morgan, to keep a low profile right now. Her new reputation for the dark arts has piqued the interest of Cincinnati's night-prowlers, who despise her and long to bring an end to her interference, one way or another. Nevertheless, Rachel must risk exposure. Her ex-boyfriend, Nick, has stolen a priceless Were artefact, and, as tempting as it may be to let the Weres him apart, Rachel feels obliged to attempt a rescue. But other sinister forces also covet the relic Nick has hidden. Some who desire it so badly, they will take the city -- and everyone in it -- apart to wield its frightening power.


A rerelease from Harper and a title full of fun for those who love a cracking lead character with a top notch supporting cast. This title by Kim Harrison is the fourth in the Rachel Morgan series and as with the others, it has a seriously kickass plot. Add to this an author with a solid understanding of pace, a good dollop of intrigue which when backed with clues and sleight of hand, makes this a story that you really will sit back and enjoy. Whilst I used this opportunity for a reread, it is a story you can enjoy without having read the others although there are some spoilers within. Great fun all in and a real treat for me.
