“I wouldn’t miss a Kim Harrison book for anything.”
—Charlaine Harris, author of the Sookie Stackhouse novels

“Her work can read like a smoldering combination of Alice Waters and Ozzy Osbourne.”
New York Times Book Review

A true queen of urban fantasy—the New York Times bestselling author of the wildly popular series featuring bounty hunter witch-turned-daywalking demon Rachel Morgan—the phenomenal Kim Harrison explores the Hollows more deeply than ever before in Into the Woods, her first collection of short stories. Rachel is here, as are Jenks the pixie, elven tycoon Trent Kalamack, and an unholy host of vampires, demons, shapeshifters, ghosts, and other assorted supernatural beings, friends and foes. Into the Woods combines original work, including a new Hollows novella, as well as all of Kim Harrison’s previously published short fiction gathered together in one volume for the very first time. No true Hollows aficionado will want to pass this up—and readers of Laurell K. Hamilton, Kelley Armstrong, Patricia Briggs, and Jim Butcher; fans of Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight novels and of paranormal romance superstars Christine Feehan and Sherrilyn Kenyon, will be likewise enchanted.

    " Vampires, witches, pixies,dryads, elves, fairies, druids....this collection of stories has it all. Not being familiar with the author's Hollows series, it still wasn't a problem reading these stories as each one could stand on its own. I loved that much of it was set in Cincinatti which is local to me. I will probably check out her other books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aine | 12/20/2013

    " Loved the Hollows stories. I liked the two stories with the dryads. Pet Shop Boys was okay. Grace was hard to get through. And, unfortunately, it was the last story. Could've ended on a higher note. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matthew Vanderbilt | 12/15/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbara Shook | 2/11/2013

    " For all those Hollows fans out there it is worth reading for "Million Dollar Baby" alone. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessika Theologus | 11/19/2012

    " I enjoyed this book a lot! Million Dollar Baby was, of course, the most anticipated one, but I found ALL of her short stories fun and different :) "
